Quite an experience
3 July 2000 | by (livonia, michigan) – See all my reviews

Meredith Baxter was right on the money with her portrayal of Betty Broderick. I saw the real Betty in an interview and it was frightening how accurate Meredith was in her appearance and speech and mannerisms. I think Meredith is often overlooked in recognition for her acting abilities.
