Geri shares her stories of working with Cheech and Chong, auditioning for Burt Reynolds, decapitating Big Bird, and how she landed her starring role on ABC’s "Facts of Life". But success had its ups and downs. Cerebral palsy causes a lot of pain. Geri would later find herself at death’s door, addicted to painkillers, too sick to work, and in a failing marriage. She would get a second shot at success when a famous producer recognized Geri at a pharmacy and offered her a role on HBO’s Deadwood.
