Melissa Gilbert Remembers Her Sister Sara's Coming Out Process on 'The Talk' (VIDEO)

by Stephanie Opella, posted Dec 6th 2011 6:30PM
Sara Gilbert welcomed her sister, former 'Little House on the Prairie' star Melissa Gilbert, to 'The Talk' on Tuesday. It was a sweet reunion and everything was going well until Sharon Osbourne took control of the conversation and steered it toward Sara's sexuality.

"When did you first realize that your beautiful sister loved vajayjay?" she asked. Sara slumped back in her chair and covered her face in embarrassment as Melissa told a few stories about Sara's coming out process. When they were teenagers, Melissa suspected Sara was gay, and took her sister out to dinner to remind her that she could tell her anything. But Sara wasn't ready yet, and told her big sister she wasn't gay.

10 Former TV Child Stars Who Aren't Crackheads

by Patricia Chui, posted Sep 3rd 2009 3:45PM
Jason Bateman in Extract'Extract,' the new Mike Judge comedy opening in theaters this weekend, stars Jason Bateman as a bored factory manager. Those of us who grew up on '80s TV are thrilled that former child star Bateman's become such a success as an adult -- especially since we still think of him as Ricky Schroder's rambunctious best friend on 'Silver Spoons.' (Did anyone else watch 'It's Your Move' religiously? Just us?)

It's quite a feat for Bateman to have come this far, as the list of former child stars is littered with tales of drug abuse, DUIs, anorexia, obscurity and death. And then there are those who pop up in the news for doing random things, such as Soleil Moon Frye resurrecting Punky Brewster to celebrate her massive Twitter following.

But why dwell on the negative and the bizarre? Here's a list of 10 formerly famous tykes who bucked the odds and emerged from childhood TV stardom -- often after long periods in which they took time off or struggled to find work -- and became famous adults in their own right. We couldn't be more proud.

Gilbert and Swayze in Little House on the Prairie musical

by Adam Finley, posted Mar 19th 2007 9:03AM

melissa gilbertLittle House on the Prairie confounded my young mind on many levels: first of all, I thought the series was an adaptation of the Michael Landon vehicle I Was a Teenage Werewolf, which led me to the erroneous conclusion that all werewolves are farmers. This is not true: most werewolves, like zombies, work in the service industry.

Also, because the show took place in the latter half of the 19th century, I assumed that's when it was filmed, too. It never occurred to me --keep in mind the show began two years before I was born-- that it was a modern show set in the past. I assumed it was a really old show and that anyone involved with it was probably long dead.

Nicollette Sheridan won't eat dog food

by Bob Sassone, posted Oct 20th 2006 9:00AM

Nicollete SheridanNicollete might be desperate, but she's not that desperate.*

The ABC star was at a dog event the other day called "Dine With Your Dog Day," was supposed to eat dog food at the event, because Eight Is Enough's Dick Van Patten (his company sponsors the event) wanted to show people that "how delicious pet chow can be." Actress Linda Blair was there too and she didn't want to eat it either. Melissa Gilbert and Ross The Intern from Leno's show were there and actually sampled the doggie dinner. James Farentino was there too; no word on whether he ate any dog food or not.

(*And, yes, I know that technically Sheridan isn't one of the housewives, but I can't let a joke go by like that, can I?)

Nip/Tuck: Shari Noble

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Sep 27th 2006 9:41AM

Dr. Christian Troy (Julian McMahon) with patient Shari Noble (Melissa Gilbert).

(S04E04) Talk about a great episode, one of the best Nip/Tuck's in a while. So much happened, it's hard to recall it all. But before anything else, I have to give the writer's a high-five with this episode because Shari Noble may be the most unique (and disturbing) patient that McNamara/Troy has ever treated. If you missed the episode, I don't want to give too much away but it did involve peanut butter and her dog. Use your imagination. Fortunately, Shari played a small role in this episode and plenty of other bigger stories unfolded.

Nip/Tuck lines up celebrity guests for next season

by Anna Johns, posted Jul 26th 2006 9:58AM
nip/tuckSeason four of Nip/Tuck begins on September 5th with a hefty list of celebrity guests. They are: Larry Hagman, Brooke Shields, Rosie O'Donnell, Catherine Deneuve, Sanaa Lathan, Richard Chamberlain, Kathleen Turner, Jacqueline Bisset, Melissa Gilbert, and Peter Dinklage. Earlier this month, Joel reported that Mario Lopez will also be a guest star, but he's not on the list released by the network.

Rosie O'Donnell is an interesting choice since she has long been outspoken about hating plastic surgery. Show creator Ryan Murphy points out that O'Donnell is on the show because she 'gets it'. He says, "The show is about the idea that, for the most part, plastic surgery does not solve your problems." I'm not sure what date Rosie's episode airs but you can bet she'll be talking it up with the gals on The View.
