Rebel embarked on a 'Year of Love' in 2019

Rebel dated people from every walk of life and found the experience really enjoyable. 

"It was a fun thing and I don't think anybody got hurt by it or anything and nobody else knew – just me and my close friends. 

"I said no to nobody. I went on some dates with some billionaires and then also some people who had nothing, it was the full spectrum of people. 

"For a woman my age – at that point I was 39 – I really wanted a relationship, but I had only had a few small relationships, so I had to just get more practice in dating."
