First, remember the hot mom? What teenage boy didn't have a crush on her.
It's a testament to the show's enduring imprint that Meredith Baxter, who played the mom Elyse Keaton, could make headlines last week with the announcement that she is gay.
Secondly can you recall their fourth child? We all remember Michael J. Fox, and the sexy Malory, and then there was the chubby blond sister... but there was a fourth, Andrew, played by Brian Bonsall, who has also made headlines recently.
Brian Bonsall, who played the Keaton's fourth child Andrew in the show's last two seasons, made headlines of a different kind this week. The 28-year-old was arrested in Colorado for investigation of an assault.
According to Colorado Daily, Bonsall was picked up by police last Saturday at the home of his best friend Micheal Trujillo. Both had been drinking heavily and arguing loudly. According to the arrest report obtained by Colorado Daily, Bonsall struck Trujillo with a splintered bar stool, but remembers nothing.
It makes me wonder if Bonsall is reaching out to his former television mom for advice on same-sex relationships. Because he's about to have one in prison
