Meet the cast starts today in honor of Heidi being 3 weeks away! Each day we will have a cast member posted to introduce you to some familiar faces in a new character and a few brand new faces we have added to the team!

"But you see, Becky, the problem isn't really him. The problem is me. I could make a better choice. I have an old friend, Peter, who I know would be a much better choice. But I keep allowing this guy to account for so much of what I think of myself. I allow him to make me feel valuable. And the bottom line is, I know what's wrong. I would tell any friend of mine that's wrong. You either shave your legs or you don't."
-Heidi Holland, The Heidi Chronicles
