Alison Sweeney is 'Scared Scriptless'

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - After her 21 year run on the soap opera 'Days of Our Lives,' is actress Alison Sweeney scared scriptless?

"I am. I like that pun. It’s been weird not having 'Days of Our Lives' scripts waiting for me at home. It’s very much the same. I had a lot of the same things going. It’s hard not to have that same routine. I miss my friends. I've been texting them all week,” said Sweeney.

The mother of a five-year-old girl and nine-year-old boy is spending more time now focusing on family. 

But her days on 'Days' are fresh on her mind and she's used her experience to write a new book, 'Scared Scriptless.'

“It’s a behind the scenes look at Hollywood. It’s the perfect beach read. It’s fun to escape into the world of Hollywood and see how shows are made. It’s about a script supervisor who is very meticulous and then she has to learn to let loose and believe in herself and find romance,” said Sweeney.

Now that the book is on store shelves, Sweeney is getting ready to get back to work as the host of the TV show 'The Biggest Loser.'

"We are living the Biggest Loser lifestyle. I’m encouraging people to make healthy choices for themselves and their kids. Get fresh fruit in your refrigerate. Have it cut up and ready to go. Rinse off some blueberries and in a bowl so you’re reaching for healthy options and not a bag of potatoe chips,” said Sweeney.

'The Biggest Loser' returns in September.

    School is back in session for some and will be for most students and staff starting next week.  Good Day New York wanted to salute teachers from across the Tristate as they head back to the classroom. On Thursday, a live studio audience of teachers were part of the Back To School Special: Good Day New York Sorry Summer is Over But We Praise and Honor Teachers (but no math; we like math teachers, though.)

    The U.S. Open is underway in Queens and there's no denying that many of the players, both men and women, are in great physical shape and know how to play that up. Women are particularly promoted in the industry as attractive, fashionable and fiercely competitive. Does that help the game and draw more people in?
