I don’t have a television in my house. I haven’t owned one in years. In truth, it’s about mental health for me.

I’ve learned when I don’t have a TV, it forces me to go outside.

I would take one of 15 half-million-dollar cars I owned and go to the mall and spend that much money. Stupid, stupid stuff. It’s like it didn’t make a difference. They were ego investments. I would have been great with three or four cars. I didn’t need a 117-foot boat.
