Untied by Meredith Baxter
"What would we do baby, with our love? Shalala....!"
(oh the theme song to Family Ties is coming back....)
For those of you who grew up in the 80s, Family Ties was one of the most popular shows. I loved it! It was definitely one of my favorites and I watched the entire series until the end.
Those were the days when you had good shows about strong families and you were able to watch them grow and change through the years. You could identify. I miss that in TV.
Meredith Baxter (Birney, at the time) was the cool mom. She had style, she had sass and she had a great sense of humor. I loved her in that show and loved her in the many movies she did afterwards. In fact, whenever I would imagine a Lifetime movie of my life, she would be play my "mom". (he he) Her or Sally Field of course. :)
A few years back she came out as a lesbian on the Today show. This morning she was back talking about her new memoir, Untied. It's pretty easy to gloss over a lot of "celebrity" memoirs these days because it seems that everyone has one. I certainly am not interested in most of them but when it is someone I have enjoyed on screen or in music, my curiousity gets the best of me.
I plan on placing a request for this at my library today!
Did anyone watch Family Ties?
Did you have a favorite TV show from the 80s?
Happy Reading and as always, thanks for stopping by!
