Lydia will talk with Linnda Durré about her life and career in Hollywood, her hilarious experiences with famous stars, and her depression after Ted Knight died and the show ended.

Her spiritual enlightenment that ensued after dealing with a drinking problem transformed her life, resulting in a very funny and "catastrophic" awakening.

"I began experiencing so many uncanny events, I can only call them miracles. What appear to be miracles are actually natural laws. We have been conditioned to believe that the external world is more real than the internal world. Quantum Physics says just the opposite: there is no solid matter. What’s happening on the inside determines what’s happening on the outside. Our world is shaped by our thoughts. So our loving attention to something literally alters the physical universe.

The key was acceptance and surrender; I surrendered all my fears and worries to a higher power and began the road to humility. I love the acrostic: EGO = Edging God Out. I began investigating Quantum physics, because I wanted to understand how these miracles happened. I now believe science proves the existence of God, but I'm talking about the God of love, not religious fundamentalism. Religion is man-made; God is within each of us.
