A mini Too Close for Comfort reunion
April 8th, 2024 under Lydia Cornell. [ Comments: none ]

Back in 1980, Nancy Dussault was hired to play Lydia Cornell’s mom on Too Close for Comfort.

Now, 44 years later, they are just as close. Case in point: Cornell came out to support a TV mom who was performing yesterday at the Catalina Jazz Club.

Seeing how close they are makes me wish they would get a sequel to their beloved sitcom. The Rush girls decided to take over their dad’s comic strip, Cosmic Cow.

BTW Can you believe there is only a three-year age difference between the two of them? And they both look freaking fabulous!

Ever since 1980, Deborah Van Valkenburgh, Jim Bullock, and Lydia Cornell have been too close for comfort, and the stars of Too Close for Comfort wouldn’t have it any other way.

Don’t you love that after 43 years, they are still as close as ever? And that is why we are still watching their sitcom on Tubi and Pluto.

Plus, they all look fantastic. I can’t believe it has been that long since their series debuted.


Lydia Cornell and Nancy Dussault are still Too Close For Comfort

Back in 1980, Nancy Dussault played Lydia Cornell’s mother on Too Close For Comfort. That was almost 42 years ago. Today, the two women are still close, and they got together over the weekend for lunch.

Can you believe that the TV mom is 86 and her daughter is the reverse age because they look just like they did when they starred together on the ’80s sitcom?

Don’t believe me, then watch it on Pluto. I have a theory that shows that do well in syndication do so because the casts still get along. This is just another case where it is true.


A Too Close for Comfort reunion!

Back in the ’80s, everyone wanted to have a neighbor like Monroe, and an apartment like Jackie and Sara Rush’s thanks to their show Too Close for Comfort. Even though that style went out of fashion, the friendship between Jim J. Bullock, Deborah Van Valkenburgh, and Lydia Cornell did not.

This weekend, the three co-stars got together and had a meal together just like they did when they lived with the TV sisters’ parents. Since they are still friends, why can’t we a revival with them? They all come together because someone wants to bring back Cosmic Cow and needs their permission.

BTW can you believe that they are all over 65? Not one of them looks older than they did when they were on the sitcom in the early ’80s.


A classic sitcom fan’s wet dream!

If you are a fan of classic sitcoms, then you recognize all of these faces. In the late ’60s, we got to know Erin Murphy as Tabitha Stephens on Bewitched. Then in the mid-’70s, we were all saying, “Whatcha talking about Willis,” to Todd Bridges on Diff’rent Strokes. Finally, in 1980, Lydia Cornell was making TV sexier on Too Close for Comfort. Even though their shows have been in syndication forever, they never did one together.

So what brought the three of them together now? They were all celebrating Keith Coogan’s 50th birthday. Doesn’t it feel like all of this would be a perfect start for a new sitcom? It could be about child stars trying to get a second chance in Hollywood.
