I met Melissa in 1985 and she is a super nice down to earth person. I wish her ALL the best in life. She gave me my lifelong story to tell people: Did I tell you when I met Melissa Gilbert and Rob Lowe? Ask any girl my age, we loved LHOP and esp. Melissa!

Why do the women in Hollywood all go for the nose job where it appears they are smelling a bad fart?

Melissa and Bruce should have never gotten married...they've always had a difficult relationship from the start. Sister Sara is also on the mend from her break-up...wine, anyone?
