Little Bitch on the Prairie
TV's Nasty Nellie Oleson, actress-turned-activist Alison Arngrim, spills on Prop 8, Mackenzie Phillips' incest claims and Walnut Grove's real wench (poor Mary!) while prepping her wicked-fun one-woman show "Confessions of a Prairie Bitch."
In part one of this exclusive two-part interview, Arngrim talks about her Little House on the Prairie days, her portrayal of demon spawn Nellie Oleson and the show's real bitch behind the scenes. She also hilariously recounts being hit on by Fantasy Island's Tattoo, Herve Villechaize, and TV's Grizzly Adams, Dan Haggerty:
"I talk (in my show) about the fact that I’ve never slept with anyone famous. Because I’ve only been hit on by horrible celebrities. I never got anyone good. Melissa Gilbert got Rob Lowe. The only people who wanted to have sex with me were people like Herve Villechaize and Dan Haggerty (aka) Grizzly Adams.
Herve Villechaize married several beautiful models. He had a system. And it was basically was if he asked every single human being he saw to fuck him, somebody had to say yes.
Herve would get some. This made it kind of annoying if you were a girl on the set. There was this constant (in rapid-fire Tattoo voice), 'You know what you need to do, you need to come to my dressing room now!' It was frightening. He just kept asking. If you were breathing, Herve goes, 'OH! Doyouwannago?'
(Dan Haggerty and I) were at Brenda Vaccaro’s Christmas party. Which is a terrifying thought in itself. It was that really horrible, Eighties thing of people trying to be hip and swingin’. He cornered me at the punch bowl and actually said something like, 'Let’s blow this popsicle stand.' He asked me to leave with him. What the fuuuuuck!"
