Up until a decade ago, Corey says she "cared nothing about my appearance." Upon realizing that she was in an abusive relationship, however, she made a decision to stop drifting through life and discovered her own fountain of youth. Now she's gone from being very buttoned up to va-va-voom.
She says she "had to reprogram my mind, because I just felt dead inside and I didn't care." Now, Corey says, "Trying new things is one of the best ways to stay young at heart." Her fitness regimen includes regular exercise, fencing and meditation. Her other secrets? "Two tablespoons of flaxseed every day, wash it down with cranberry juice," says Corey. "It's good for the digestive system. I take milk thistle, multi-vitamins and acidophilus, and I take garlic on a daily basis."
Her turnaround has been so dramatic that 45-year-old Corey is now a successful model, even scoring jobs where they're looking for 25-year-olds. And it's no mistake—she even fools college students! "She came to my school one time and she was helping me move on campus," Corey's son, Michael, says. "A friend of mine came up to me and he said there's a whole bunch of fine new girls on campus. I said, 'Okay, what's going on?' He pulled me outside and it was my mama walking to my room!"
