Photog Dim on Judith Light

8/21/2008 12:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Our cameraguy had all the right questions for Ellen Travolta from "Charles in Charge" yesterday in NYC. One problem: He was talking to that other '80s mom from "Who's the Boss?," Judith Light. Oops.

Judith Light also played for many yrs on One Life to Live and she was AWESOME! She played the part of Karen Wolek. Light's character became a prostitute after she became bored with her life as a housewife. On trial, Karen saved her friend Viki Lord from being convicted of killing her pimp by admitting that she had been a prostitute to the entire town, including her faithful husband. Light won Daytime Emmy Awards in 1980 and 1981.

you have to be a serious backwoods hillbilly living under a rock to get this wrong.

I'm Japanese and even I know who Judith Light is. The two tv mom's don't even look like each other and have NEVER looked like each other, so how they got this wrong, as photogs for entertainment tabloids... is just pathetic.

not to mention, Judith light is still prominent on tv with Lifetime movies and doesn't she play a judge on Law and Order occassionally?

I haven't seen Travolta doing too much except minor guest roles in a few things.

I LOVED Juith Light in One Life to Live. She could cry in a flash, faster than Tammy Faye Baker! Like a true champ and entertainer she politely talked with this guy (who obviously doesn't know his business well) and went about her business. The good old days. And don't forget about Luke and Laura from General Hospital days.

What a stupid idiot! TMZ has these ridiculously ignorant whatever you want to call 'em -- paparrazi, morons -- who are supposed to be up on pop culture -- bot past and present. And, come on -- Judith Light being mistaken for Ellen Travolta? You guys should be more up on who's who. Do it right, or don't do it at all!!

I agree with the commentor who wonders why you would put up yet another video pointing out how clueless and unprofessional TMZ's paps are. Apparently TMZ takes delight in being ignorant.

There is no such thing as reality tv    

Judith Light is on Law and Order SVU (recurring role) and Brothers and Sisters. Two prime-time shows. No need for TMZ to live in the '80's and act like Judtih has had no career after "Who's the Boss".

You would think since TMZ is supposedly in the business of knowing celebrities and their every move, then they should know who they're talking about. TMZ's ignorance never ceases to astound me.

It's always great to prove to the public how lame and stupid our employees are... and it shows how well of a company you guys are running.

Since TMZ is in the celebrity journalism field, at least get your celebrities straight.

How the hell do you not know who Judith Light is when she's on one of the biggest shows on TV?
