Stars who have faded into obscurity

Melissa Joan Hart have been all but forgotten. I loved her on Sabrina the Teenage witch.

by Anonymousreply 25405/19/2017

Melissa Joan Hart does have ABC Family show with Joey Lawrence. But she isn't popular in most Hollywood circles these days. She is a homophobe and she has made enemies in the music business because of her musician husband.

by Anonymousreply 103/04/2013

R1 Yep. She's a real bitch. She made homophobic comments back in 2007 saying that Chris Daughtry had turned a song her husband co-wrote into a "fairy love song" and was gay. Then in 2008, her and her husband were being interviewed (I think at the Grammy's) while she was pregnant, and her husband said he didn't want their son to have a "sweet" name, and she just laughed.

When she announced she was a Republican and was supporting Romney, people were really done with her. The only people who watch her show on that two-bit channel are soccer moms.

Remember Mena Suvari had a lesbian phase? She was dating a super butched out older woman. I used to see her at the gym in Hollywood. She has faded into oblivion now though.

My friends friend is now dating Melissa Joan Hart's ex. So we looked up the ex, and I was surprised to see MJH is an outspoken Republican. Yuck.

Delta Burke did an episode of the Sally Jesse Raphael Show where she was very open about her weight issues and the pressures of the entertainment industry. From what I recall, she basically had enough and walked away from the business.

I remember getting a little teary listening to her speak on that episode. She struck me as someone with a lot of integrity, kindness, and a strong sense of self. A true woman.

Many have forgotten how Delta was one of the first TV stars to openly challenge how women were being presented in the media. She pushed mainstream audiences to question how women looked on TV, and why they were being made to look that way.

Btw, here's a picture of her from her pageant days. Quite the southern beauty.

I spotted MJH as a probably right-winger and homophobe a long time ago. Around the turn of the century they did a Lifetime Profile on her. And her mom outed herself as a homophobe, saying Melissa took her role as a teen role model serious, and would never play a lesbian junkie. It was an obvious reference to Ally Sheedy's acclaimed comeback role in High Art. It apparently really pissed MJH's mother off that a former teen actress had grown up to play a (*gasp*) lesbian. So that's where MJH gets it, the rotten apple didn't fall far from the tree.

Bridget Fonda retired after marrying Danny Elfman, who has an estimated 75 million fortune from his movie soundtracks. So she chose to give it up, she doesn't need the money and apparently didn't enjoy it enough to continue.

Bridget was cool and a decent actress, but much props to her for not pursuing something she never liked to do.

As technology advanced and became more user-friendly, and as users got more comfortable with it, and after the resolution of the Y2K re-programming necessities, the need for IT experts diminished. Also, the post 9-11 economy did not help.

R220, Gabrielle Union is a 40-year old black actress, and while she still looks 30, there are limited roles for black actresses. She's still popular, especially in the black community.

Gabrielle co-starred in the hit 2012 film "Think Like A Man". She's had an endorsement with Neutrogena for the last decade, and she's dating NBA superstar Dwyane Wade of The Miami Heat. Right now, Gabrielle's filming a new television show.

Vivica A. Fox is a black actress who is almost 50 years old and messed up her face with horrible plastic surgery. She used to be very pretty.

[quote]Vivica A. Fox is a black actress who is almost 50 years old and messed up her face with horrible plastic surgery. She used to be very pretty.

Fox also wasn't choosy in what she took, and she took a lot of garbage even when her career was in its prime. From A-Z list movies, failed TV shows, bad TV movies, and a lot of reality TV.

[quote]She sucked Vincent Gallo's cock onscreen, was dropped from her agency and went from having a film career to being on a cable drama (a critically acclaimed cable drama, nevertheless).

That and she had a drug problem and for a time didn't care that much about having a long term acting career. She cleaned herself up, but Brown Bunny and started taking her career more seriously, but the damage had been done. She auditioned for a lot of mainstream films, but was turned down.

Larry Wilcox is just fine if his Facebook fan page is any indication. (See below). It's got over 15,000 members and is run by his personal assistant, who is fantastic. Really nice lady. Larry posts there too, and on his website, Doesn't appear he's acting much these days though. He seems to enjoy producing and digital media more. He's happily married and has 5 kids. Nice to see a 70s star who is happy and healthy and doing well. Larry did an autograph show in Burbank last year and I met him there. Very nice, funny, down to earth guy.

As for Erik, he's a prick. Ran into him in LA and he was pompous and rude.
