Her dancing was OK, her singing is unbelievably awful

The shitbra must have been out in full effect at the rehearsal studio working out those box steps.

She was sort of attractive before she had all that plastic surgery.

Obviously this was done before the invention of AutoTune.
Does anyone know what show it was from? I can't imagine it was American Bandstand, but what else did Dick Clark host?

Watching this video, it's easy to understand why Melissa Sue Anderson didn't like her.

I don't ever remember her attempting a musical career but then I didn't follow her. Not a Prarie fan at *all*.
That song was unbelievably corny even for then. I was embarassed for the dancing boys.

That lift sort of didn't happen. Those two dancers probably got the shitbra after that one!

I think Melissa has said this was her most embarrassing showbiz moment.

Was she really a big deal once? I saw Mario Cantone do an excerpt from her autobiography for "Celebrity Autobiography," and in it she says she once dated Rob Lowe (!), when he was about the handsomest guy on the planet, and then when he cheated on her went to her best friend Warren Beatty (!!) for advice. She must have really been a big star once, but I thought all she did was play TV's Half-Pint.

She was quite famous in the '70s and throughout the '80s with Little House and then she married Bruce Boxleitner and her TV movies.

After Little House, all she did was talk about dating Rob Lowe, both while dating him (my mother used to joke that every other sentence out of her mouth was, 'my boyfriend, Rob Lowe") and after. She was apparently quite upset that he didn't talk about her enough in his memoirs.

God, what did Bruce Boxleitner ever see in that fugly thing?

What the fuck was THAT ?
Also never realized she tried to sing. Now know why
LHOTP was her pinnacle .... Don't remember a single thing she did afterwards
|by Anonymous||reply 16||12/24/2015|
There isn't much to remember, post-LHOTP; however if you look at her IMDB the amount of Made-for-TV movies she did in the '90s was astonishing, one worse than the next and usually subtitled as some factual woman's 'story',along the lines of--"A Dance Before Dying: The Trish Gahagan VanDevere Story" or similar ilk.

She was the face of Lifetime in the 1990s. I remember hearing tons of jokes about her when I was in high school and college, either about the lurid TV movies she did -- modern "women's weepies" basically -- or about being washed-up.
Those movies, her relationship with Rob Lowe and that SAG presidency fiasco were what kept her in the papers. Her many friendships with stars, lots of them Old Hollywood, helped a lot.

I never thought I'd say something like this. . .but Kathie Lee Gifford did it better.

Her back up dancers are very cute.

I'm really hoping that half-pint gets cast as the mother of Rey's mother in the next Star Wars film.

The smaller dancer was really good.
What happens to dancers like, when they age. Where do they go? What do they do?

They become stunt doubles for Herve Villachez.

They can become dance instructors and/or choreographers, or else they retrain for an entirely different career, or find a sugar daddy I suppose.
