She went to ASU in 1982 and moved to Los Angeles, California, when she was 24, remarried at 35 and now lives in West Hollywood, California, with her husband Adam Rose and their dog Zeis.

On the 2012 Coal Scam, Shinde our home minister head of CBI commented shamelessly "Our coal blackened hands would be clean once we wash our hands".
