Good for her for coming this far in life and career. She is a wonderful role model to prove that no matter what the disablilty one can overcome it and be successful. She was awesome in Deadwood!

To all of you people dissing this woman, shame on you! She has extremely worked hard to get where she is only to have jerks like you to tear her down? Obviously, you are all insecure and jealous of the fact that there is a woman with a disability who is more successful than yourselves.

TMZ needs a post on Chris Burke from Life Goes On. Is it true that Geri and Chris Burke used to going on cocaine binges between tapings?

Wow. Where's the sarcastic remark TMZ? Where's the sophmoric joke? I thought your websites main mission was to hate on everyone. Can there be winds of change in the air?
