Marilu Henner : Aida Teagarden

With the energy of a teenager, the wisdom of a sage, and the memory of a super hero, Marilu Henner has deservedly earned the nickname “Perpetual Motion.” Along with starring in over thirty films, six Broadway shows, and two hit classic sitcoms, “Taxi” and “Evening Shade,” this five time Golden GlobeTM Nominee is also a New York Times Best Selling author of nine books on health, lifestyle, parenting, and memory.

As one of only twelve people documented with HSAM (Highly Superior Autobiographical Memory), Henner was featured on “60 Minutes” and continues to be part of brain, memory, and Alzheimer's research. For three years she has served as a consultant on the CBS show “Unforgettable,” whose main character has HSAM. Recently, audiences have seen Henner as a reoccurring character on Fox’s “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” on “The Crazy Ones” (as Robin William’s ex-wife and Sarah Michelle Gellar’s mom), “All-Star Celebrity Apprentice,” and on CBS’ “Two and a Half Men” (as Ashton Kutcher’s love interest!). Marilu has appeared before Congress seven times (Women’s Cardiovascular Disease, Food Supplements, Dietary Guidelines (2004 and 2014), Child Nutrition Reauthorization Act 2010, etc.) and she frequently lectures throughout the country as a keynote speaker.

Her brain health, focus and memory supplement SPARK by Ascenta Health can be found all over the United States and Canada. In addition to hosting her own daily radio show The Marilu Henner Show for Sun Broadcast Group, Marilu can also be seen touring the country in her one woman show, A Memorable Evening with Marilu Henner. In January, she will be starring alongside Candace Cameron-Bure in Hallmark’s “Aurora Teagarden: Three Bedrooms One Corpse.” Marilu is married to Michael Brown, CEO of Browntrout Publishers, and is the busy mother of two college boys, Nick and Joey.
