Well, Alison is a FUNNY person, so I imagine her book must be funny and interesting too. I wish I could read it someday. Smile

This is a facinating thread. You all have made this a must read for me.

I finished reading Alison's book and I must say that I truthfully enjoyed it cover to cover! Thumbsup



She is really funny, I love her style of saying things. I remember when I met her in Hollywood at the show.... she was very funny and I got to meet her afterwards and take a pic with her. I lost that pic because my laptop fried and I lost some of my pics! Blue

I remember that before the show, I saw her and her husband walking to the theater. It was night and nobody was around. I was in the parking lot across the street. She was carrying her costume change and I felt like calling her but it was dark and I didn't want to sound or look like a crazy fan lol But there they were walking to the theater... they were laughing about something and her husband put her arm around her. They looked sweet. After the show her husband gave her some enormous flowers... he must have gotten them while Alison was doing the show.

Anyway... great book! Thumbsup

Hi, Carol:

What a sweet souvenir! It seems that Alison and her husband goes very well along! Hope they culd last forever, as old couples did, since they seems to be so special...

Alison Arngrim is FUNNY, and I like a lot funny persons. Life has bad, dark sides but looking at her, it doesn't seems just possible! greenS It's almost impossible to imagine her as a victim of a sexual molester when she was a child. She seems to have done her life very well as an adult. Thumbsup

Vanesa.

What a cool story, Carol. I'm glad you enjoyed her book. I agree, she does have a great way of saying things; it's almost as if she's talking right to you.

I think this is the only photo that I could find... It was a cheap camera I had so the pic is not so clear lol
This was at the beginning of her show when she comes out as Nellie...



You know how before the show you get to write down questions for her to answer.... mine was one of the ones she picked HeeHee
I just asked her to do a whiny Nellie impression... which she did. Too funny Laughing


*Vanesa, I'm not sure if you know, but it was her own brother that molested her... many times. mad

Her own brother???!!! Uh! Yikes affraid thud No; I didn't know it. It must be one of the things I missed when I couldn't enter here for a while. I've read her interview at Larry King's show and she said it was someone of her family, but that she wouldn't tell who he was . She didn't want to give him any publicity and affirmed she'll never tell it. It's the info in the book?

Her book was great....she has really come out of all the bad and explains how LH helped her vent her anger toward her brother. Being mean on the show was what saved her. She is truly a survivor.

Well, if you have some personnality troubles, psychologist saids one of the better therapies there are is theater. If you performs some amateur play, it could help you to overcome your own problems. Alison Arngrim didn't need to act mean to other "real peolpe", but she was mean in fiction, sometimes so mean that could be unbearable..If her behaviour was for real.

Natthew Labortheaux had authism troubles when litle and his psychologist also saids he must try to do some acting to help his condition...I think it helped? Isn't it? Wink

As for Alison's brother...How their sibling relationship is currently? I've always believed they were both good friends... scratchead

I really enjoyed this book a lot. I even went back and watched a few of the episodes she mentioned to watch again after her insight. I haven't read MSA's book yet, and for some reason, I really don't have a lot of interest in MG's. The pictures were great and I love her writing style.

I think I read somewhere on a MSA website that she ordered a cease and desist or some kind of other legal action on Alison. It had to do with some kind of bad words Alison had about MSA. I am fuzzy on the details. Does any one know anything more about this?

I posted the letter to Alison from Melissa on my website. Melissa didn't order a cease and desist. She just threatened to do it in the letter. Melissa was angry about all the negative press about her from Alison's book. The event that made Melissa write the letter happened when Alison said that Melissa renounced her U.S. citizenship in two interviews. Melissa never renounced her citizenship. She has dual citizenship in the U.S. and Canada. I keep in contact with Melissa and we are friends. I met her in Colorado in 2010 during her book tour.

Thanks,
Mike

I injoyed AA book the most out of the 3. It was really good and funny.Loved how she was honest and told how it was. Smile I think it's great that her and MG wre best friends.I just don't think it was nice of her to pick on MSA .She seems like a nice person.I always pictured all of them being best friends and Getting along.Maybe one day they work out this.AA went threw a lot growing up. Blue I don't think the cussing wasn't really too bad.MG had more.

I found a copy of her book at a second hand store.If i was able i would let the ppl who can't get it read it.
