Today’s question is an easy one and probably will get the most “yes, that's me!” answers. How many of our listeners used to watch the TV show Little House on The Prairie? Well if you did, then I am sure that during the nine year run you knew the charming Nellie Oleson. Actually Nellie was the scheming, selfish, lying, manipulative brat that viewers hated along with her evil antics. Did you ever think about what it must have been like playing that sort of character on an extremely popular TV show? Think the character sticks with you for a long time? Every time we saw Gary Coleman we thought of Webster. Carol O’Connor we would think of Archie Bunker. The character follows you and many people start to believe it was so easy to play the role because you were actually like the character. Well this was not the case for our next guest. She grew to love her character…mostly because it gave her the freedom and confidence Nellie inspired in her. Today we will talk about the fantastic book, “Confessions of a Prairie Bitch”. The book was written by actress, stand-up comedienne and star of the one-woman show by the same title which has become a worldwide phenomenon. She has done extensive advocacy work on behalf of HIV awareness and for abused children. It is our honor to welcome to Your Life Matters, Alison Arngrim.
