Lisa Nicole Carson Talks Being Blackballed In Hollywood After Bipolar Diagnosis
Lisa Nicole Carson was, undeniably, one of the “it” actresses of the 1990s. No matter the movie or television show, Carson’s bright smile and curl fro always made an impression as she captivated viewers with witty one-liners.
