Personal Quote:

[on coming out to stepfather Allan Manings about her homosexuality] I told him, 'I'm dating women. And he said 'Huh. So am I.' And that was it.


Gave birth to her twins (her 4th & 5th children) at age 37, a son Peter David Edwin Birney & a daughter Mollie Elizabeth Birney on October 2, 1984. Children's father is her now ex-2nd husband, 'David Birney'. See more »
