Peggy Fields Richardson! was born weighing 5 lbs. and 5 ounces, and quickly zoomed to 250 pounds and has been a major chub her entire life. That has never stopped her from doing anything: acting, dancing, tae kwan do, whitewater rafting, snowmobiling, dating goodlooking men, and exuding self-confidence and happiness. Peggy tried--several times--to get a college degree, but her education was always interrupted by life's many issues. As the divorced parent of a child born with spina bifida and tethered cord syndrome, Peggy spent many years working 2, 3, or 4 jobs at a time just to keep the lights on. She is an expert word processor, does excellent desktop publishing, writes newsletters, and generally has outstanding office skills. But none of that ever satisfied her drive to perform. After being mistreated for 15 years at a major law firm in Nashville, at 59 years old, she threw caution to the wind, quit her job, and moved to Los Angeles County to pursue the dreams that she had harbored since her chubby toddlerhood. Peggy loves laughing, is dedicated to her husband and family, and knows that "Fat don't mean ugly." Her dreams have always been to make a living with her talent: acting, writing, producing, and she has only just begun to pursue this experience.
