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

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.

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.

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

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.

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?

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.
