I wonder what Betty Buckley thought of Grant Goodeve's vocals on the Eight is Enough theme

and if she told him.

by Anonymousreply 7311/14/2013

Did he play on that song?! I wonder what she thought of Lani O'Grady, did she fuck her? Did she fuck Susan Richardson? Abby was a saint to kick it in that house with all those kids. Maybe she was there for the pussy.

He sang the theme. He was awful!!!

She suggested he re-record it with a more strident, metallic tone.

That song, and especially the singing of it, always went through me like a knife. But when you think about, did the song deserve any better? "There's a plate of homemade wishes on the kitchen windowsill." Whatever the ingredients were in those wishes, the kids didn't turn out so great.

It was better than the original bombastic theme song.

by Anonymousreply 711/08/2013

I thought he was just fine vocally.

Was there anyone else on the show who could sing? What choice did they have?

It's a bit sad that GG is reduced to doing public works commercials, but he still looked hot to me.

Not in R17's link. He looks fucking embalmed.

by Anonymousreply 4211/10/2013

Parker Stephenson was never remotely attractive to me. He looked like a goofy doofball who just THOUGHT he was a hottie and pulled it off by sheer will alone. Horrible of me to say but he had a HORSE FACE. His eyes were too close together and he had those ginormous horse teeth. That sounds so bitchy but he always bugged me enormously back then because everybody (including, obviously, Kirstie Alley) lauded him as so sexy. WTF? Now, decades later, I can vent to total strangers! LOL

r45, when I was a kid I never understood the appeal of Sean Cassidy. Parker Stevenson was the hot Hardy Boy to me.

Betty Buckley was too good for this sorry show..

R52 The correct title is The Sally Field Programme!

I still miss Sally's 10:41 meltdowns. Betty could never have pulled those off convincingly.

by Anonymousreply 5211/10/2013

Betty had absolutely nothing but disgust for the show. She prayed everyday for cancellation.

So it was shocking she agreed to be part of the 8 is enough reunion on The Today Show.

by Anonymousreply 5311/10/2013

When Diana Hyland died, they should have killed off both her character and Dick Van Patten character.

Have Grant move in to assume the 'father' role, and it would have been an early 'Party of Five' TV show.

by Anonymousreply 5411/10/2013

Me too R55. That show was over the top but I loved me some Nora Walker.

I'm sure there were plenty of young gay men who wanted to call Grant Goodeve "Daddy."

BOING! Thank you, R57, now go back to your room and commit suicide please.

by Anonymousreply 5711/10/2013

I thought that anyone and everyone involved with 8IE loathed Betty, except for Laurie Walters, thus the reason she wasn't asked to do the reunion movies. Betty said, I think it was in the 8IE True Hollywood Story, that she would've loved to have done them but that she was never asked. Yet, she did that Today reunion. I'd kill to see it, but it's not on youtube. Were her co-stars friendly toward her?

by Anonymousreply 5811/10/2013

First reunion movie she was filming 'Frantic' with Harrison Ford.

Second reunion movie she was on tour with her cabaret act.

R62, pretty sure a TV movie would give plenty of notice for someone to shift cabaret tour dates.

They should have gotten Janet Hubert to take over the role.

Who was doing coke on the set?

by Anonymousreply 6811/13/2013

Thanks to whoever posted the Today reunion. I was shocked that Betty even acknowledges her time on show, much less talks positively about the experience. She said the first season she joined was rough, the remaining ones were a pleasure to do. She affectionately rubbed Connie Needham's leg when Connie talked about her ovarian cancer, which was a sweet touch.

by Anonymousreply 6911/13/2013

Connie seems like a sweetheart.
