This won Sharon Gless her second Emmy.

Which one did Jane Curtain play again?

They were no Barrie Youngfellows, that's for sure.

Yeah but who among us is?

I was Barrie Youngfellow before Barrie Youngfellow was Barrie Youngfellow.

Now wasn't there a straight porn flick made named "Gag Me and Taste Me"? Two female cops and their sexual escapades in the station house and out on the street?

The title of that show is just ripe for a full-on porn.

e show was then picked up for a regular season beginning with the 1982–83 season, but Foster was then replaced by Sharon Gless because CBS deemed Foster too aggressive and too likely to be perceived as a lesbian by the viewers.[1]

Starring in "A Different Story" didn't help either...

Bitch at least my career never sank so low that I had to play Danny Tanner's girlfriend.

Sharon Gless was amazing. Why the hell is she on Burn Notice now, and why is she so bad on it?

[R9]: Bitch, at least I didn't get cut from "Blossom" after the pilot! (Note that I had a recurring part on that show while concurrently starring on "Full House.")

Shut up bitch, at least I didn't replace Tatoo sending him into a depression that made him kill himself or wind up playing the wife of Howie Mandell.

And let's not forget Rhoda never dumped my daddy either.

Loretta Swift was mad because she wanted to leave MASH and take the role, she played in the TV movie but the MASH guys wouldn't let her out of her contract.

Then CBS said, they'd hold the role for her till MASH was over, but then they double crossed her and recast it.

[R11]: Wendy, dear, I know you've been bitter since you got cut from our show (after the producers decided you were superfluous to my characterization of "the sweet one"), but anger causes illness.

Why don't you do something positive, like write a thank-you email to the webmasters of your fansite?

What's that, you don't have one?

God bless,

"Whatever it is, you add scotch"

"I'm an orphan!" "You're 41 years old!"

Loved those two. Was a big shipper, my first same sex shipping duo. Daly and Gless had amazing chemistry plus the show was great.

Thank you OP.

"CBS deemed Foster too aggressive and too likely to be perceived as a lesbian by the viewers."

And yet somehow Tyne Daly passed.

This thread makes me feel at home.

Oh, and you all sound ridiculous sniping at each other. I may be a "has been", but you all fall into the category of "never was".

[quote] yet somehow Tyne Daly passed

Tyne was supposed to be the masculine one, and wore lots of dresses on the show.

They needed a feminine one to contrast with Tyne. According to the C&L Book, Sharon had to spend an hour a day in hair to give her hair 'bounce'. But wardrobe dressed Sharon in tom-boy type clothing, to contrast with Tyne's housewife dresses.

by Anonymousreply 2512/21/2012

Tyne's brother was smoking.

Excuse me, Betty — where is *your* Tony for Best Actress in a Musical?

Betty was getting fucked regularly by megahottie Grayson McCouch, so that trumps Tyne's Tony.

My favorite scene:

"Hey! I don't order the kid's plate here!"

"Mary Beth! That's California Cuisine!"

Runner up:

Cagney buying condoms in anticipation of a Big Date, and the checkout clerk holding up the box, bellowing, "PRICE CHECK!"

That jokes was also on the Golden Girls. When they were going on a cruise.

Tyne, did you get a Broadway show one week after arriving in NYC? I did, and I didn't have a famous father to help grease the wheels.

Does anyone know if Sharon is a lesbian? Seems odd that she would marry the C&L producer so late in the series.

by Anonymousreply 3912/30/2012

IIRC, Gless and her husband lived in seperate houses through out their marriage. At one point she had a crazed female stalker who broke into her house. The stalker had found the house by looking at tax records or something, but she wound up breaking into the wrong house. Seems the husband's house was the business address.

(And I think she was armed with a knife or a gun or something).

god, if tyne daly was my partner, I'd stick knitting needles in my ears. That VOICE was so grating.

R40 Thanks for the info. She's definitely someone I can see being an attraction for a lot of lesbians. She's got a tough demeanor, but she's also very pretty.

by Anonymousreply 4212/30/2012

I remember being shocked when it was announced she was replacing Meg Foster, whom I liked in the role. (Yes, I am THAT old to remember this.) Til that point, I'd always thought of Gless as kind of kittenish and lightweight in the acting department. She'd replaced Lynn Redgrave on House Calls the season before, where she played it very feminine. She really butched it up for Cagney and was able to hold her own against Daly.

Gless' house was broken into by a stalker. It wasn't the wrong house, as Sharon did own it, but she hadn't lived there in some tome from what I recall. this happened during the run of Cagney & Lacey. Sharon didn't marry Barney until after that series was over. They never lived in separate houses after they were married. They currently live in Florida.

At link is article about Gless' stalker.
