MARILU HENNER TO LEAD THE FIRST-EVER ONLINE HEALTH PROGRAM!

Taxi actress and New York Times best-selling author to lead 30-Day Online Support Program based on her book, THE 30 DAY TOTAL HEALTH MAKEOVER

May 26, 2000-New York, NY-When was the last time you felt healthy? Due to the incredible popularity of Marilu Henner's Official Website (www.marilu.com), Marilu Henner and Entertainment Drive, the producers of marilu.com, have decided to offer a 30-day online support program for Marilu's best selling health books, The Total Health Makeover (THM) and The 30 Day Total Health Makeover. Beginning June 1, 2000 and continuing for the next 30 days, the THM Online Support Program will provide content and community via a members-only website, 24-hour chat rooms and private message boards.

Marilu.com's public message boards were part of the inspiration for the THM Online Support Program. Filled with Total Health Makeover converts, the message boards blaze with online regulars seeking recipes, asking questions and looking for lifestyle tips. When Marilu got online and answered some of their questions, the response was tremendous. It became clear to Marilu and Entertainment Drive that they could do more for marilu.com's online community: Marilu could guide participants through the THM way of living.

Marilu Henner said, "The response to THM has been overwhelming both online and off, but my marilu.com message boards have really inspired me. They've allowed people who've read my books to help each other through the program. They've started to build a community. That's why the 30 Day THM Online Support Program makes so much sense: I can work with a diverse group that is united by the same focus. The participants benefit from the other members as well. Together, Entertainment Drive and I have created a really special program to help people change their habits for a healthier lifestyle. I could not be more pleased."

For $19.95, THM Program members will receive a Yerba Prima skin brush, coupons to Imagine foods and Wholefoods.com, a personalized Certificate of Participation signed by Marilu Henner, and a marilu.com bookmark with a motivational message from the star. Members will also receive access to the private website, chat rooms and message boards. Marilu Henner and her THM Online Support Program staff will answer members' emails, lead chat sessions and send motivational emails to members.

Michael Bolanos, President and CEO of Entertainment Drive, said, "The Total Health Makeover Online Support Program is an Internet first. Never before has there been an online program that enables personal growth by developing and emphasizing a small and active support community. With thousands of messages added to the marilu.com message boards each month, it's clear that the future of online interaction resides at www.marilu.com!"

Admission is limited and signups are growing quickly. To join the program, visit www.marilu.com and sign up by May 30, 2000. Press personnel seeking a day-pass to the program can contact THM Project Manager, Rosalie Barnes at rosalie@edrive.com or via telephone at 212-545-4948. About Marilu Henner
