2. Some sort of drug addiction took her out of the limelight
And I believe it's Powter.

4. She was a weight loss, motivational speaker
...living in a van down by the river...



"Stop the insanity" was her slogan.

11. Atkins killed her...
I remember some infomercial a zillion years ago where she shouts 'fat makes you fat!' Sorry, but that was last decade's fad diet.

I googled her. She has a web site - and judging from the photos, she's also had a fair amount of cosmetic surgery.

15. She's making a comeback-she went bankrupt after her first empire crumbled
I saw her on the Wayne Brady show one morning-she's as obnoxious as ever.

16. Ahhh, you don't watch FAUX, do you?
Funny you should ask! My husband and I got home from dinner last night and were flipping through channels (he'll watch FAUX just to torture himself, he likes to argue with them -- weird, I know) and Linda Crosby (is that her name?) was interviewing... Susan Powter! She had pink dreadlocks woven into her short short hair (hair was dark blonde, dreads were bright pink), loooong black fingernails, a zillion bracelets on each arm, and a bright pink bra stuffed with bosoms just about to burst out of her tight white blouse. Quite a spectacle. She was talking about power and life and love and how she'd never felt or looked better in her life, blah blah blah. Actually, the hair looked kinda neat, the rest was just overkill.

I didn't catch the beginning of the interview so I don't know why she was on, but in her own peculiar way, she was mesmerizing. LOL!
