  83. I love Alison and love to read! I would be so happy to win her new book!


  84. Hello Alison, I have been a huge fan of yours and your character Sami on Days of Our Lives since you started on the show. I love the “messes” “Sami” gets herself into and love the strength of her/your character. I am 50 and have been watching Days since it began in 1965. I was 3 years old and would watch it with my mother during “rest time”. Over the past 45 years, I have watched the characters and actors on the show grow up, leave Days, return to Days, etc… Days is a wonderful fantasy that I can escape to for 1 hour of my day. I am a huge fan and will continue to be until its last day on television.
    I want you to know how refreshing it was when I found out you were to be the new host on the Biggest Loser. How inspiring to people of all ages to have a host on a weight loss show who has also struggled with her weight in her own personal life as a young teen and also have a similar story-line on Days when your character Sami struggled with bulimia. Biggest Loser made the right choice when they asked you to host the show. Biggest Loser couldn’t ask for someone more understanding of a contestant’s struggle than having someone who has lived a similar struggle in her own life. I struggle myself and yo-yo due to hypothyroidism. I actually passed up an opportunity to try out for the show 5-11-13 when auditions were held in Philadelphia. I just can’t commit to leaving my husband for 5 to 6 months straight. He recently lost almost all of his sight and is now disabled. He was pushing me to audition, but I just couldn’t justify the time away from him being a 4 year newlywed.
    Alison, keep up the good work. Some people live precariously through those they admire, I can do that watching the wonderful results of your Biggest Loser contestants and feel their happiness as I cheer them along….I would so love to have a copy of your book. No worries though…If I don’t win it, I will purchase a copy.


  85. Love Alison on Days and Biggest Loser. I never miss either one. Would love to have her book.


  86. What a talented woman. This sounds like a great summer read!
