We had the good fortune of connecting with Cher Rue and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Cher, do you have a favorite quote or affirmation?
My affirmation is always be kind to others. It takes so little to be kind and it is a gift you give yourself for after you feel good and so does the other person. I love seeing others happy and smiling and if I can make that happen and its free well its amazing! You always have a choice to be nice, kind or rude and mad. It is the feeling after that you give yourself so I choose to feel good and not bad. They say you get more with honey and I truly believer that and if you are nice and the person is nasty or mean back its not you they are upset with its something they are going though and I just send a prayer for them and hope they have a better day!

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I am a plus size Actor. I loved being a pioneer 20 years ago showing that size is just a number and we are all the same we can do whatever we want in life we just have to go get it. It was not easy, I took many classes and challenges still today for memorizing lines, but it is so fun and worth the hard work. I have met some amazing people and learned from them also. You see people who are jealous and not kind and you just have to ignore and move on. So the lesson I have learned is just be me and follow my path I am not here for judgement of others or their path. I want the world to know I am proud of the Woman I am and have become, I am proud of not letting my size effect all the things I choose to accomplish!

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
When I have friends come into town I love going to the Cinépolis theater, is always so fun. I love Takao Sushi so I would take them there in San Clemente. Most people want to go to Disneyland so that is always awesome and go to Hollyood and walk the blvd and see the people and the sites, wax museum. I love going local to the harbor in Dana point, Harpoon Henry’s and walk along the pier. I love El Adobe Mexican food in San Juan Capistrano and they have the little stores to shop along the way. I love Dana point it is a beach town and the people are really nice I have lived here for 20 years and my daughter and son-in-law love surfing at old mans beach. Nick’s in San Clemente has great food and Ambience.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I want to shout out to all the Plus size Women who I have been able to mentor, encourage and see the way they shine by being a part of Pageantry that I have been involved with and executive director. This has been such a life changing event in my life to be able to help women who have been shy of their weight and able to see then grow and come out of their shell and help others though charity work and pageantry. I feel blessed to be a part of their lives. 5 years in California Plus America National Pageant 1 year Miss California Queen Of Charity State Pageant starting 2019 I would love to Shoutout to my personal assistant “Rachel Mendez” who has always been there for me and helped me all the way to help and support others.
