Special Guest: Brenda Strong
Television viewers know Brenda Strong as “Mary-Alice Young,” the dearly-departed narrator of ABC's award-winning, smash hit DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES, whose weekly voiceovers provide viewers with insightful commentary from beyond the grave.
Previously, Strong was perhaps most recognizable to television audiences for her role as “Sue Ellen Mishkie” (a.k.a. “The Braless Wonder”) on the award-winning series SEINFELD. She has also appeared on such acclaimed series as CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM, NIP/TUCK, EVERWOOD, SPORTS NIGHT, SEVENTH HEAVEN and PARTY OF FIVE. Other television credits include C.S.I., ALLY MCBEAL, GILMORE GIRLS, E.R. and the Lifetime movie FAMILY IN HIDING.
Strong's feature film credits include THE KID AND I (starring opposite Tom Arnold), THE WORK AND THE GLORY trilogy, STARSHIP TROOPERS, STARSHIP TROOPERS II, THE DEEP END OF THE OCEAN, A PLUMM SUMMER, OCEAN OF PEARLS, THE CRAFT and the Mel Brooks hit SPACEBALLS.
A native of Portland, Oregon, Strong left home to attend Arizona State University, where she earned a Bachelor's Degree in Musical Theater. After graduation, she moved to Los Angeles and began landing roles in both television and film.
Strong is a certified yoga instructor and produces and stars in a line of videos designed to help infertile couples through yoga therapy. Additionally, she has taught at UCLA's Mind-Body Institute and is the national spokesperson for the American Fertility Association.
She lives in Los Angeles with her husband and son.
