Something people outside of Hollywood don’t realize is that a lot of child stars are friends with other child stars from their age group. Many of them are up for the same roles, so they get to know one another and commiserate with each other at auditions. They have a bond that lasts until adulthood and beyond. Therefore, when one of them sadly passes away, it brings them together.
Yesterday, Cathy Silvers from Happy Days invited Erin Murphy aka Tabitha Stephens from Bewitched and Susan Olsen form The Brady Bunch over to talk about their friend Erin Moran, who passed away from 4th stage lung cancer at the age of 56 on Saturday. The three actresses grew up Moran behind the camera, so they lost a dear friend from their youth. For Silvers not only did she lose a friend off camera but one that also played her best friend on Happy Days. For Murphy, she lost someone with the same first name and first initial of her last name. I wouldn’t be surprised if they were sometimes confused for the other one during auditions. Finally, for Olsen it is someone who also knows what it is like the play the youngest child to a big family on TV. Besides all of that, it is someone who knows what they went through growing up in the public eye. Like I said, it is an unbreakable bond.
When it comes to three actresses, who ages range from 52-55, they all look phenomenal. You know, I hope some network sees them together and thinks we should give them a show together like The Golden Girls or Designing Women or Hot In Cleveland. Could you imagine awesome that would be? I would watch! I can totally see Pop TV having with it like they are with Return of the Mac and Hollwyood Darlings! It would be a hit and maybe they can get Alison Arngrim to join in on the fun.
Update: They talked to The Insider about their friend, so get the tissues ready as you watch their interview.
As we end one year and begin a new one, Me TV takes a look back the beginning and endings of some of the shows of their lineup like Cheers, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Happy Days, Star Trek and several more.
Seeing them side by side like that, show how much they changed from their first day to their last one.
I enjoyed it so much, I want to see them do that with more shows. What shows would you like to see the first and last scenes of simultaneously like that.
So you know how on The Steve Harvey Show, he has audience members ask him questions? Well one woman stood up and told him that she hasn’t been able to take a honeymoon with her husband because he is always traveling for his work as an actor. You might’ve heard of him, he is Butch Patrick who played Eddie Munster on the ’60s sitcom The Munsters. He joined her on the show and the daytime talk show host admitted he is a huge fan of the child actor. But that reveal was not as amazing as when Mrs Patrick revealed that her hubby, “is a real monster in the bed, if you know what I mean.” Then she added, “And sometimes, he even howls.”
And with that my childhood has been completely ruined.
Want to know what really makes a really good theme song? Not only if you can still sing the song 50 years after the show ended. What makes a truly memorable theme song is if a parrot can whistle it. Oumutdeyil‘s parrot cannot only whistle the song, it also figured a way to make the snapping sound when needed. Lurch would give this Polly two pulls on the bell! In fact, John Astin would be so proud of that bird. And hopefully if he were to meet the whistling songster, he wouldn’t do a Gomez and eat it. That seems like something the patriarch of the family would do.
Seriously, doesn’t this bring as a huge smile to your face? Kind of like watching The Addams Family all over again.
We all know that Joan Harris was able to survive working in an office back in the early ’60s, but how would she do in the year 2014? FunnyOrDie answered that question for a good cause. Equal pay for women who make up 70% of the job force. Til that happens, we are trapped in the workplace of 50 years ago. Except for the martini lunches, today is a much better place. So makes it that way for both sexes.
