People tell me everyday that I look like Taylor Swift. Her middle name is my first name Alison with the same spelling.
I love vampires and if I could become one and look young forever I would in a heartbeat. I met my favorite Vampire, Ian Somerhalder.
I've been on two Backstreet Boys cruises. The boys call me Kentucky Girl or Ariel because they think Ariel is the hottest Disney Princess.
