Celebrity Baby Scoop recently interviewed Christina to discuss the wine line, her daughter, and what’s up next for her.
CBS: You are part brand owner of the Viva Diva Wines line of sparkling Moscatos. Tell us about the wines? How did you get involved?
CM: Our wines our delicious to start with. I’m an avid wine drinker with my girlfriends and when the opportunity to work with the brand I was immediately excited! Moscato was my first fore to drinking wine and I find there is a climax in women my age having a taste in wine. Wine is a great escape to my day to day busy life and I would like to share the experience of the “vacation” I feel while drinking our wines. They’re affordable, tasty and our fruit infused moscato’s really help define their taste and eagerness to prove their inner diva! Wine is great anytime! Plus our alcohol intake is lower meaning less calories and more fun in every glass! This is for our modern day superwoman!
CBS: What sets Viva Diva Wines apart? We love the name, how did you come up with it?
CM: The name in itself expresses the fun and confident woman. Long live the diva! Our fruit infused Moscato sets up apart from most moscatos for sure! The flavors make a great addition to the normal Moscato
CBS: You were also the Social Media Correspondant for The Voice. What’s it like to work with Adam, Blake and the gang? Looks like a fun group, are you all close? Are you planning on staying on for next season?
CM: Working on the show has been an awesome experience and has helped me to continue to grow As an as artist. I’ve learned a lot while watching them mentor new talent. I won’t be on for this season because I plan to concentrate on making my new album and being a solid source to represent a show like the voice. I love the whole team at the show and feel very fortunate to work on such a successful show.
CBS: How is your daughter, Violet, doing? What is she into and what does she do to make you laugh?
CM: Violet is GREAT! She’s brightens my day everyday. She’s a jokester she listens and says the funniest things sometimes. She loves to dance and is very lovable! Right now everything she’s into is Princess anything.. When she gets dressed she picks out pink and skirts and dresses… She’s very feminine. She twirls around and says “I’m a princess Mommy”.
CBS: What is your favorite part about being a mom? What are some of the challenges of being a single?
CM: Everything. She encourages me to be better. She always keeps me laughing and with a busy life on the go she reminds me to relax and concentrate on the little things. She makes me feel very special. My challenges more so are making sure to fit in time to be a parent, put down my phone and give her the time she needs. But somehow I make it happen. See constantly on my mind. So sometimes I make sacrifice to other things to make sure I let her know she’s just as loved and as special as she makes e feel. At times I only have the time for breakfast but I make it the best breakfast ever. We spend a lot of late nights together too even though she’s supposed to be sleeping but I can’t help it. She’s my baby. Other times I just get my nanny or mom to just go on and bring her to work with me 🙂
CBS: What upcoming projects do you have?
CM: A movie called “Baggage Claim” coming out sept 27th. I just shot a Christmas movie called Wonderland to be released this Christmas on Lifetime. As well as my album with YMCMB and a growing business in the new and trendy “Ehookah” world called Platinum Hookahs! They’re nicotine no ash,no tar and no tobacco. Just the easy cool feeling of puffing fruit flavored vapor! Everyone’s loving it. They’re sexy and an additional value to being the life of the party!
