Vicki Lawrence is a TV icon who has spent decades wowing us with her talent, comedic timing and winning smile. She most recently starred on the recently renewed Great News on NBC and is best known for her roles on Mama’s Family and the Carol Burnett Show.

During her two episode stint on the show, Vicki played Angie, who is intern-mom Carol’s best friend. Although her role was small, she hopes that she gets to return next season. It will be interesting to see her character develop and where things go as the show processes. (I would LOVE to see her and Nicole Ritchie get some screen time together!) If her recent time on the show is any indication, she is sure to make us smile every time she is on screen.

So what is next for her? While she hasn't said much about any curent projects, she says she would love to be a guest judge on Dancing With The Stars. (Can somebody please make this happen?) She says she would rather judge than dance because she has two left feet and thinks it would be more fun to watch.

In addition to her acting, Vicki is a spokesperson for CIU and You, which brings awareness to chronic idiopathic urticaria, also known as chronic hives. She was diagnosed with the condition several years ago and has made it her mission to help people who suffer get diagnosed and get the help and treatment they need. She has appeared on The Doctors and done several other projects where she has made people aware of CIU and plans to continue her quest until a cure is found. 

However, the best part about Vicki is her incredible, sweet personality. I recently had the pleasure, or more accurately, the honor, to speak with her in an exclusive interview. She not only treated me with the upmost respect, but made me feel like family. She took an interest in my life (and TVGrapevine!) and truly made the experience incredible. It was amazing to see someone with such fame be so down to earth and full of love. She reminded me that how you treat people reflects who you are and that she is a beautiful, loving person inside and out.
