On people’s criticism of her show:
“That’s something I’ve come up against—people [thinking], If HBO had just asked me, I would have made a TV show that was just as good but included more people or was smarter or funnier. Like, Hey, just give me half an hour and a million dollars, and I’ll do this.”

Carol’s thoughts on Kate Upton:
“I think Kate is a product of great media hype. Without Sports Illustrated, I’m not sure she would’ve made it in the industry as a high fashion model. Because she is more of a large size model. And even if I’ve seen her in person, and I don’t think she’s in any way fat or overweight or anything; she’s just more large-sized than fashion models are.

On her rough time growing up:
“I didn’t go to a private school; it was a public school. It was not a very nice school.” She was bullied there, because, as she puts it, she was “different from all the other children at the school. I really wouldn’t wish it on any kid, because it’s horrible.”
