In a Lipstick on the Rim podcast episode, Diaz suggested this arrangement after discussing the challenges of loud snoring. Her proposal? Individual sleeping spaces within a shared family home. “I have my house, you have yours, we have the family house in the middle,” Diaz expressed, emphasizing her comfort with the idea. However, she balanced this concept by proposing a middle ground—a shared bedroom for intimacy. Diaz challenges the conventional notion of shared sleeping spaces, prioritizing personal comfort while maintaining the closeness of a relationship.
