Basically, she showed more skin. This is a first for Mandy considering she has said in the past that she has been uncomfortable showing off her body because she was either too lanky or too skinny. But now its obvious that Mandy is stepping out of her shell and showing the world what she’s got, both physically and emotionally.

‘How To Deal’ Author Says Moore Was ‘Serious And Professional’

And I thought she’d act more like my students at UNC (University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill) who are about that age, 18-19, but she was so serious and professional. I was really just concentrating on not acting like a total dork. I was so nervous I can’t even remember what I said to her.” Read more.
