Marilu also recently appeared as a competitor on Donald Trump's Celebrity Apprentice. She hosted America's Ballroom Challenge on PBS, and guest-starred in the big series finale of ER!
Of all of her achievements, however, Marilu is most proud of her success as the mother of two teenaged boys, Nick and Joey, and her loving relationship with her husband, Michael Brown, whom she helped cure of two cancers.

Lectures 1 & 2: The Role of Your Life (Parts I and II)
Take the person you would most like to be—your idealized self—and approach becoming this person as if it were a character in a script, and you were the actor cast in the part. To find this healthy, fit you, we’re going to take an actor’s approach. Not an actor? We’re all actors! Acting is the ultimate art of transformation, and the process of that transformation comes from searching, observing, analyzing, discovering, and building a “character” from within. Many things we do are mechanical. And we can’t truly make any lasting positive changes until we get in touch with those knee-jerk mechanical responses that are sabotaging our conscious efforts. Come to this class with a willing spirit and an opened mind. In other words...come to play! The classes will build on each other, but each can be taken separately.
