She can currently be seen on Lifetime’s “Project Runway All Stars,” hosting the show alongside returning judges Isaac Mizrahi and Georgina Chapman. Alyssa most recently starred in the ABC series, “Mistresses.” The sexy drama series follows four women and their sometimes scandalous romantic lives. It will return for its second season in the summer of 2014.

She also starred on the Fox cornerstone series “Melrose Place.” She began her career on ABC’s “Who’s the Boss” which aired for eight years. Alyssa had a recurring role on the hit NBC comedy, “My Name is Earl,” and starred in the ABC comedy, “Romantically Challenged.”

Alyssa was most recently seen on the big screen in Garry Marshall’s “New Year’s Eve,” with co-stars Robert DeNiro, Ashton Kutcher, Zac Efron, Michelle Pfeiffer, Hilary Swank and Sarah Jessica Parker and “Hall Pass,” opposite Owen Wilson and Jason Sudeikis. Alyssa’s film credits include “Hugo Pool” co-starring Sean Penn and Robert Downey Jr., the Imagine/Universal film, “Fear,” and “Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star.” She provided a lead voice for Disney’s sequel to the animated favorite “Lady and the Tramp.” She also starred in and produced the independent film “My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend.” She was seen in Lifetime’s “Sunday’s At Tiffany’s,” based on the best-selling novel by James Patterson.

Her other role is outside the world of Hollywood, as a philanthropist. UNICEF invited Alyssa, in 2003, to become a National Ambassador, recognizing her charitable work on behalf of children. She is currently working with UNICEF to educate American youth to the issues crucial to that country’s evolution. She has worked on UNICEF’s pivotal “Trick or Treat” campaign as an official spokesperson, and has plans to work with UNICEF on numerous projects in the future.

The Global Network for Neglected Tropical Disease Control (GNNTDC) recently named Alyssa the organization’s founding ambassador. Alyssa will continue work to raise awareness of GNNTDC and NTDs among the mainstream media and with the general public.
