Today on Marie
Today Marie welcomes to the stage the wonderful Charlene Tilton, who at 17 starred as spitfire Lucy Ewing during the original run of "Dallas." Now she's back stirring things up on the TNT reboot of the series. Charlene opens up to Marie about her difficult childhood with a mentally ill mother, as well as the trials and tribulations of raising her own talented daughter, Cherish. Recently, Charlene survived another tragedy, with the sudden death of her fiance. Fortunately, she's come through it stronger than ever.
Charlene and Marie then head to the kitchen to make the famous Hollywood Brown Derby recipe for Grapefruit Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting!

Next, Marie welcomes another guest with an inspiring story, Robin Bloomfield. A former yo-yo dieter, Robin finally broke her bad diet habits with the help of Nutrisystem. After trying all the diet fads out there, she wanted to become a better role model for her daughter, who was developing the same bad eating habits. Now without skipping meals, Robin lost 30 pounds and she's kept it off for almost a year!

Raycee & Mills
The young acoustic pop duo Raycee & Mills takes to the Marie stage today. Through Kickstarter, their recent musical efforts have been funded by their own fans! And as a tribute to Allison Wyatt, one of the young victims of the Newtown tragedy, they wrote a song called "Light My Sky." They have a personal connection to the Wyatt family, and today they deliver a heart-felt rendition of the song in honor of Allison and all the victims. They also perform a second track, "Back to the Moon."
