She was just a small town girl ... Then she moved to Los Angeles to pursue a music career ... Only to inadvertently get an audition when she was, by her own admission, "terrible" at acting.
Then she got a second chance – and the rest as they say (who are "they," by the way?!) is history.
Known best to the world for her role as the spunky spitfire Nikki Franco on 90s hit V.I.P., Natalie Raitano (pronounced "ree-tah-no" if you're uncertain) is now back at home in her native Pennsylvania. She would go on to star in her own series, Pink, as well as several other movies and television roles thereafter, racking up a pretty nice iMDB resume in the process.
Now, she is living her proverbial best life, working as an entrepreneur and fitness enthusiast whose Superbodies by Nat is set to expand in a major way, continuing the work she's done as a celebrity fitness trainer for years. Quite comfortable away from the spotlight, she finds peace in the simple things and helps others to do the same.
On this episode (out on all major platforms on Wednesday, March 2, 2022), Tabari and Natalie talk about her journey from PA to LA, going from being an unknown to a star overnight, her relationship with Pamela Anderson during the VIP days, her faith, why being fit makes her so happy and what she might love to do should she ever decide to return to La La Land.
