    Victoria Jackson



    From the official site:
    Christian comedienne Victoria Jackson is probably best remembered for her role on Saturday Night Live. Mainly known for her high, squeaky voice and the messy pile of blonde curls on top of her head, Victoria has the distinction of being the longest lasting female on the show (1986-1992). A trained gymnast, she performed stand up comedy in Los Angeles before The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson put her act, which included her reciting poetry while doing a handstand, on national television. She has since starred in many TV shows and films.

    A resident of Miami Lakes, Florida, Victoria is married to her high school sweetheart and has two children (one from a previous marriage). She continues to perform stand up and relies on her musical training (she plays piano and ukulele) to fortify her comedy routine. Additionally, she just finished recording an album of children songs and is working on a compilation album of her original music such as, "I am Not a Bimbo" and "Where Do You Draw the Line Between Love and Adultery."

    Victoria really surprised me, she's actually not in THAT horrible of shape physically, nor is she really THAT heavy. She really does have some issues to deal with though when it comes to body image and feeling good about herself, so hopefully losing some weight and having some time with the doctors will help with that.

    Very doable goal of 30 lbs. Her biggest challenge will be her mental self image.
    Really rooting for her.

    She seems to carry most of her weight around her middle. I just wanted to give her a hug as I watched that clip of her father talking about how she needs to lose weight. I can't imagine what that must do to someone's self esteem long-term. She seems so sweet - I'm really rooting for her!

    I've liked Victoria ever since her SNL days, and she seems like a very sweet, good-natured soul. It must have taken a lot of inner strength of character for her to overcome her father's judgemental, uber-critical attitude towards her, and channel it into her own brand of gentle humor. Nowadays he'd be a prime candidate for that SportsKids Moms and Dads show.

    Loved when she said "I have daughters, and I'd never say that to them" (re: critiquing their shapes)

    I agree. When someone goes through that they know how it feels and normally wouldn't inflict it on someone else.

    Does anyone else think that if Victoria ever really stands up to her father, her voice will permanently drop an octave?
