Officer Tom Jones arrested David Cassidy
August 21st, 2013 under Arrested, David Cassidy. [ Comments: 2 ]

David Cassidy was arrested early this morning in Schodack, NY on the suspicion of Driving While Intoxicated. According to Times Union, he was pulled over at DWI checkpoint and was arrested when Officer Tom Jones suspected he might’ve been driving under the influence. The article says that is BAC was a .10.
The Partridge Family star was charged with a felony DWI because of a prior conviction. He was arrested on November 3, 2010 for DWI and plead no contest to that crime in February 2011. His license was suspended for 6 months and he completed a year of probation for that crime.
If I were him, I would tell the judge he just read, Shirley Jones, his stepmother’s book that details her exploitative love life with his dad. If that doesn’t cause someone to drink, I don’t know what will.
But in all seriousness, I hope he gets the help he needs.

UPDATE: David Cassidy is going to be featured on OWN’s Oprah: Where Are They Now? this Sunday at 10p.


BTWF roles: Ed Harris in David Cassidy – Man Undercover
May 31st, 2012 under Before They Were Famous, David Cassidy. [ Comments: none ]

(starts at 6:45 in)

Before Ed Harris was the king of a motorcycle-riding renaissance-fair troupe in Knightriders, he was the #2 in a motorcycle group in David Cassidy – Man Undercover. He looks the same now as he did when he was 27 in that 1978 episode. BTW how have I never heard about the show before this Before They Were Famous?


Ruby & The Rockits is a Cassidy Family Affair!!!

For the first time in David, Shaun, Patrick and Ryan Cassidy's lives, the four brothers are working together. So what brought this Showbiz legacy of a family all together? Well Shaun Cassidy pitched a show to ABC Family called Ruby & The Rockits with his brothers Patrick and David in mind and then hired his baby brother Ryan to set design and the rest is TV history. So what is it like for these brother to work together? As someone who has been on the set, it is like going to family reunion where the brothers recapture their childhood and everyone wants to hang with them and they want you to do the same. It really is a family atmosphere on the set. The Cassidy brothers aren't the only ones of their family to work on the show, Patrick's wife Melissa Hurley, who was a dancer in the '80s and '90s music video, choreographs the '80s video dance numbers and last week it was confirmed that David's TV mom and Shaun, Patrick and Ryan's real mom, Shirley Jones will appear on an episode as guess what…their mom. In fact Friday nights when the show tapes 3 generations of the family come out to watch Ruby & The Rockits and because there are so many of them, I think that is why the show's taping are always sold out and that was before the show even aired! Joking! It really is a show with someone and something for everyone in your family!
Ruby & The Rockits is loosely based on the Cassidy Family and things they have been through. Kind of how like when Ruby surprised David in the pilot by telling him he is her dad, David did that with his brothers with Katie. According to Shaun when the Melrose Place star was 15, David brought her along to dinner one night with his brothers and then he said, "Oh, and by the way, this is my daughter, I’ll have the chopped chicken liver and the…”. That was the first time they met and learned about her. Shaun is the family man like Patrick and Patrick is the father of 2 boys like his character. In fact Shaun told us when he originally pitched the show, he wanted Patrick to play the rock star and David the dad, thankfully they switched that out. 
The three other brothers talked about their experience with the show and working together. David being the eldest took credit how it was idea that got the ball started!

Well, my brother and I had a phone call about a year and a half ago—Shaun and I. And I had the germ of the idea of doing a family show, which we have talked about—Patrick and I haven't talked about working together and said, “Wouldn’t it be great if we could,”—I’m trying to think of the original conversation that just sparked the idea. And he ran with it, you know. That’s what he does and he does it well. I said a music show satirizing our family, my persona, his, and Patrick and I have always wanted to work together.

And I said, “You know, it’d be great if we could get Ryan as well. Then the four of us can work together for the first time,”  

Patrick summed it up best what it is like for the 4 Brothers to work together:

There’s no downside to it, because even when—let’s say Shaun and I have a disagreement or Dave and I have a disagreement, this is the only job I know where I can go to the Executive Producer and he can yell and scream at me, and I can yell and scream back at him and I still have a job the next day. You know what I mean?

So, it’s a collaborative effort. And like Katie was saying, I’m always wondering what the crew people and the other actors think about what it’s like from the outside looking at us all doing this together.  I think they get how much we care about each other. I think they get how much it means to us to be able to do this, to have the privilege to do it together. I think they feel all of that. And I think they feed off of that. So, there really isn’t a downside. There really isn’t.

It’s a funny thing. I’ve said this. I’m really getting paid to have therapy, because I’m getting to do it with my family. And you learn stuff about your family when you work with them as opposed to just hanging out with them every Christmas.

And baby Ryan put it all in perspective:

I love working with my brothers. I come every day, and it’s great. You know, it’s a little surreal actually, because I’ve been doing this for so many years on different shows, to go to work and actually see all your, you know, all your siblings, is great, actually. It’s been such a joy to do. So, I’m having so much fun. And I’m very grateful for it because it’s a once in a lifetime kind of opportunity, I think. So, I’m enjoying every moment of it, and it makes the work just that much more enjoyable to do. I actually don’t see it as work. I see it as enjoy, you know. So, it’s great. 

As you can Ruby & The Rockits is a show the whole family can enjoy because it really is a family show. What other sitcom on TV today can say that? So tune into ABC tonight at 8:30p to feel like part of The Cassidy Family! On tonight's episode Ruby is adjusting to living with Patrick, his wife and their two sons and finally getting to know her dad. What better way for her to get to know him, but to organize a father/daughter dance at her school. Will David disappoint her or will he make her proud. Believe me you will want to tune in to see what he does because it will definitely having you LYAO!!! BTW I have to admit that I was kind of nervous that the show wouldn't be as good as the pilot and after seeing the 2nd and third episodes, I have to say I was right because the show was not as good as the pilot…it was a whole lot better! Seriously this show gets btter with each laugh!!!So make sure to check it out tonight and every Tuesday on ABC Family at 8:30p!
Next week see what the non-Cassidy Family members had to say about working on the show, and which one of the brothers is their favorite…hint they all the same thing!!!

Jam with ABC Family’s Ruby & The Rockits starting tonight!!!
July 21st, 2009 under Alexa PenaVega, David Cassidy, Freeform, Reviews. [ Comments: 2 ]

ABC Family has been striking gold with its new shows like The Secret Life of an American Teenager, Make It or Break It and 10 Things I Hate About You, and I think the best one is premiering tonight at 8:30p. Ruby & The Rockits is a family show that has someone and something for everyone in your household. It might be because this really is a family show. For the first time all 4 of the Cassidy brothers (David and Patrick star, Shaun created it and Ryan does set design) are working together and you don’t have to be of Cassidy blood to feel like part of the family and that is what I love about it so much.
Ruby & the Rockits is the story of ’80s rock star, David, who finds out one day he has a teenage daughter, Ruby. Not prepared to raise her on his own, he goes to his brother, who he used to sing with back in the day and now they don’t make sweet music together, to help him out. Patrick is now a successful business man and happily married father of two sons. Will he be willing to help his brother out and how will his family feel about have a new member? Being a family sitcom, they will work it out thanks to Ruby and Audie (Patrick’s wife and former-video vixen for them) who will work their magic to get these dueling brothers together and little by little they will do it in funny one liner ways! I can’t wait to see what other antics this non-traditional, but in ways traditional family get in to!!!
Ruby & The Rockits has a lot of true stories from the Cassidy family life in it like David having a daughter his brothers didn’t know about until one day he surprised them with Katie. It is little tales like this that make this show seem a little more realistic, and the humor is just such a bonus. Seriously I can’t get over how hysterical and likable it is. You would think because this show is on ABC Family that the humor would be all like G rated, but let me tell you there are some PG-13 laughs coming up in the future episodes.
Now when it comes to the cast, they are like a true family and I am not just talking about the two real life brothers. They sincerely have an amazing chemistry that takes some shows years to get. David Cassidy is perfect as the former-teen idol rocker and not just because he was one but because his timing and delivery is beyond perfect. He will have you cracking up so hard you might split your tight leather pants. Alexa Vega is so adorable as his daughter, not only can she can act but her voice is as beautiful as her. Patrick Cassidy is great as the former rocker, now perfect dad who longs for yesteryear. Katie Amber Keane really handles being the mom and the mediator between the two brothers well. Austin Butler, who plays the older son Jordan, is the current teen idol of the show and I wouldn’t be surprised if he is on all the teen mags soon because he is going to drive all the teen girls crazy with his looks, acting and singing. But he might have some competition from Kurt Doss, who plays his younger brother Ben, who is the cutest pre-teen boy out there in Hollywood. He will and should give the Jonas Brothers a run for their popularity. Seriously he is so freaking awwwdorable and funny you just are going to love him the second you hear him deliver one of his wisecracks on the show. It really is a dream cast and show that you will find yourself addicted to before the first commercial break!!! And I haven’t even mentioned the awesome ’80s flashback videos that everyone on the cast and crew love putting together. Here is a little tidbit, the clothes that David Cassidy is wearing in them is from his closet of that time and yes ladies he still fits into them!!!
Last week I did a set visit for this delightful show and later today, I will post what the 4 brothers told us about working together next week and following week I will tell you about the rest of non-Cassidy family cast!!! It was a lovely day to go with feel good show!
Please check out Ruby & The Rockits tonight and every Tuesday night at 8:30p for a show that everyone in your family will be able to love and enjoy!!!
