Dearly Departed Tours to Host THE NASTY NELLIE OLESON TOUR OF HOLLYWOOD!, 5/11
The Bitch is now on wheels on May 11 for a "Mother's Day Tour." Alison says "Come join us and bring your mom --- Unless she is like my TV mom, Mrs. Oleson."
Dearly Departed Tours and Richard J Sebastian are proud to present THE NASTY NELLIE OLESON TOUR OF HOLLYWOOD!
After all these years, she is still so much fun to watch and now you can meet Nellie Oleson! That's right....she has her very own tour back by popular demand.
Alison Arngrim grew up in Hollywood - and it shows! She became a television icon with her portrayal of Nasty Nellie Oleson on the classic television series, Little House On The Prairie. Alison was one of the lucky ones that made it out of childhood stardom alive and reasonably sane, and continues to pack houses with her one woman show, Confessions of a Prairie Bitch, and being an activist for the fight against child abuse (Protect.org) and finding a cure for AIDS. She also has her book of the same name now a NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLING AUTHOR and now she is sharing her life here in Hollywood on her very own tour. You will get to see many of the places she lived here in Hollywood over the years. This is basically some of her show and book on wheels!
During this special 3 hour tour, Alison will entertain you with personal anecdotes from her Book and one woman show CONFESSIONS OF A PRAIRIE BITCH! From her zero degrees of separation to the legends. You name it, Nasty Nellie has a story for just about everyone from Liberace to Michael Jackson, from Paris Hilton to the Manson Family.
Alison will share her personal history geographically, from Gardner Elementary School (and her superstar classmate MJ) and Hollywood High School to the legendary Garden of Allah and the Chateau Marmont.
Of course there will be plenty of time for Q and A! Ask her anything! Included is also an autographed photo of Alison, and an opportunity to have your picture taken with her. Don't forget your camera! This is a rare treat - a tour given by an international television icon! There will also be an opportunity to purchase her book for yourself or as a gift and have it autographed.
Alison has been there and seen it all, and for a limited time, is sharing it with us, the lucky ones at Dearly Departed Tours of Hollywood.

BACKGROUND: Summer is here all the time in Los Angeles and friends and relatives are making reservations to visit you in glamorous L.A., and we all know what they want to see: stars. Now, you can book a lunch reservation at The Ivy and it's a roll-of-the-dice as to which celeb is showing up and whether you'll even recognize. But there's one reservation you can make where you're guaranteed to meet the biggest, baddest star of all: Alison Arngrim, better known as Nellie Oleson from TV's Little House on the Prairie. When Little House on the Prairie made its television debut in September 1974, it captured the hearts and imaginations of families across the country. A top-rated series throughout its nine-season run, the timeless show's themes of love, discipline, morality and strong values continue to resonate with viewers around the world through its continued syndication. Nominated for 17 Emmy and three Golden Globe awards during its original TV run, Little House on the Prairie was based on the best-selling books by Laura Ingalls Wilder that documented the extraordinary adventures of a young pioneer family's struggle to build a new life for themselves on the lawless American frontier of the 1870s.
For upcoming dates, just go to the link on the front of the page, all beginning at 4:00 pm, During the course of the three-hour-tours Alison will regale her entourage with first-account tales of everyone from Liberace (her father managed him) to Michael Jackson (she went to school with him) to Paris Hilton and the Manson Family (don't ask).
