Some folks might Meredith Baxter from her role on the popular 80's sitcom "Family Ties". But ever since the show went off the air she hasn't done much acting and pretty much went out-of-sight (much less out-of-mind). But in a desperate bid to become relevant again, at age 60, Baxter announced that she now chooses to sleep with women (this from a 5-times married, recovering alcoholic). Of course, that got Baxter newsworthy again with the MSM and now, just to add a little cream on top with the press as well as her newfound liberal groupies, why not bash an ex-husband (and father of 3 of your kids) as a wife-beater in a new book and go on "The Today Show" and take a side-swipe at Republicans too. Now, she's officially a "star" again:
Actress Meredith Baxter, best known for her role as Elyse Keaton on the '80s NBC hit Family Ties, returned to the Today show set where, back in 2009, she announced she was gay and told Matt Lauer, on Tuesday morning, that her self-revelation could've been something, in her view, much more shocking - she may have realized she was "a Republican."
On to promote Untied, Baxter was asked by Lauer if she had "come to terms with everything" after having written the book, to which she responded: "I realized I was so un-self-examined I could have been a Republican, but you know, thank goodness I'm just gay. So that's much better, don't you think?"
