Lauren Chapin


American child actress on TV series "Father Knows Best," a heart-warming show of family values that belied the reality of her life. The daughter of an alcoholic mom, she was sexually abused from three by her dad and a family friend. At seven, she told her mom and it stopped until she was 14 when the abuse resumed. At age ten she made a suicide attempt, trying to hang herself. The show ended when she was 15, in 1960; she ran away the following year in a brief marriage.

With a heroin addiction, Chapin was unable to get work as an actress so she moved into prostitution to support her habit, passing bad checks and living from hand-to-mouth for 15 years with forgery, alcohol and the low-life. She had two kids with lovers.

When she was arrested, she had reached bottom, and took the turning point that was offered. With rehab, she became a born-again Christian in 1979. By age 44 she found her own path, married and relocated to Texas. She became a minister and wrote her autobiography with Andrew Collins, "Father Does Know Best" in 1989.

She is active in her Orlando, FL community, speaking to youth groups about drugs and she helps to supervise teen beauty pageants.
