Not to Sound Condescending, But I’m Really Proud of Todd Bridges

8 March 2017 3:30 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Last night my wife and I were talking about the episode of Growing Pains that featured Dana Plato.  It was one where she was pressuring Mike (Kirk Cameron) to “do it” with her.   We then looked her up and read about her tragic downfall to eventually drug/suicide death.  We also remarked on Gary Coleman’s death.   My wife than asked me about Willis and I said, “you mean Todd Bridges?”  While I knew that Bridges was alive I hadn’t researched him in quite some time.    My only recollection of him is a hilarious cameo he did in That’s My Boy
