Alison Arngrim is loved and feared by people all over the world for playing the mean little rich girl Nellie Oleson on Little House on the Prairie. Alison credits the role with saving her sanity.

Today Alison joins us to talk about her funny and heart breaking memoir, “Confessions of a Prairie Bitch” which recounts her time on Little House, growing up in a crazy Hollywood, and her work on behalf of HIV/AIDS charities and victims of sexual abuse.

    I always new there was a reason I din’t loath Nelly Olson. Great show guys. This is a great video I would have posted it but the copyright holder won’t all it so here is a link

    I am COUNTING THE MINUTES until I get out of work so I can listen to this. I am such a huge “Little House” fan it isn’t even funny, and Alison’s portrayal of Nellie Oleson was one of the reasons why I loved the show so much. Can’t wait to see her show with you!

    HOW much fun is Alison? She’s a delight all-around, and I’m thrilled that she’s having a resurgence because of this fantastic book. I’m so excited to see her live and in person when she comes to Chicago. Thank you, Marc and Fausto, for bringing another wonderful interview to us!!

    That was a fantastic interview. I loved the book and have told everyone I know about it. Alison Arngrim is an amazing woman and I hope her book gets even more popular as a lot of people don’t realize all the good she’s done over the years and all the help she’s given to people. She deserves uberkudos. If I wasn’t in Taiwan I would fly to Chicago just to see her show and get a signed copy of her book. She’s great. I’ve been a fan since I was a kid but now I’m a fan of Alison, not just the character Nellie.

  5. Alison is by far one of my favorite guests. She was fun, and engaging and felt like the kind of girl I would swap stories with over cocktails. I’m going to buy her book today. Great Show.
