Rachelle Carson-Begley is one of the most recognized names and faces in the environmental world of Hollywood. As the wife of uber-environmental, Ed Begley, Jr., Carson-Begley opened her life to millions of people as Co-Star of the highly successful reality series, LIVING WITH ED, shown on HGTV and Discovery’s Planet Green. Each episode of the show chronicled the everyday life of what it takes for this reasonably green-conscious gal to live with her over the top, all or nothing, eco-obsessed husband! She constantly ponders, “Living green? Easy…but living with Ed?!!!
As if they didn’t learn their lesson, they’re back with a new production called ON BEGLEY STREET which will follow the zany couple as they attempt to build their green dream home.

She is a medical resource in Jenny McCarthy’s book, Mother Warriors, and on McCarthy’s Generation Rescue website as well. Dr. Lippman is also a regular guest on TV and radio shows.
