After “Taxi,” Marilu co-starred in several films, most notable, “The Man Who Loved Women” with Burt Reynolds; “Johnny Dangerously” with Michael Keaton; and “Perfect” with her old friend Travolta.
Marilu returned to television in 1990, co-starring with Burt Reynolds in “Evening Shade,” a sitcom about life at a small town high school in Arkansas.
In 2010 it was documented that Marilu has hyperthymesia, an ability that allows her to recall minute details of every day of her life since she was young. “60 Minutes” featured a segment about this condition, also called superior autobiographical memory, that reported only six individuals in the world have this ability.
“I never knew [hyperthymesia] was that unique,” she told Howard Stern. “Until the '60 Minutes' show I had no idea it was considered a super power.”
“I always had a great memory, people always teased me about it for years. It was a real combination of nature and nurture,” she said on CBS.
“It's like time travel, I'm back looking through my eyes.”
By 2012, Marilu had written nine books on maintaining a healthy lifestyle, including “Total Health Makeover.” Her books stress regular exercise and a non-dairy diet.
Marilu's latest book released in 2012, "Total Memory Makeover: Uncover Your Past, Take Charge of Your Future," assists people in recalling their own autobiographical memories.
