Are you taking about her then-husband? Is so, why would she thank him? He didn’t work on the show or help her start her acting career.

People usually thank their spouses,

I forgot she had been married to Andre.

by Anonymousreply 3November 21, 2020 12:58 AM

She didn’t thank KG by name? Is that who you mean? She did thank “the entire cast and crew”.

R4 - I was thinking of her not thanking Andre.

She is such a reserved WASP type. Superficially none of the craziness of a child actor.

I think I figured it out. She didn’t say thank you to her mom, Teri!!!

Damn, she truly was stunning

If anyone cares, this is a good interview from around that time:

Christopher Atkins?

It’s Tammy Cruise, obvs. But they have made up since.

R8 - She was. Also a talented comedic actor.

by Anonymousreply 13November 21, 2020 7:31 PM

Totally R8. She was truly gorgeous. Still is. But in her prime? Man, I'd think about it.

She didn't thank *me*!

I remember she was one of the earliest celebs profiled on Who Do You Think You Are?

I can't remember if it's via her dad or her crazy ass mother but she's a direct descendant of Charlemagne.

She’s a lovely human and hard worker. I’ve seen her in several Broadway shows and she’s always done excellent work.

Not exactly, r17, AntennaTv is continuing on, but in September, Rewind will launch as a separate network with its own programming of post-1980s shows while Antenna sticks with pre-1980.

R21 = Thanks....I assumed it was a rebrand because EVERY show they have is already on AntenneTv....

I think Debra Messing patterned her W&G character after Brooke's work in Suddenly Susan.

It’s her dad’s side. Somewhere in that line they were bankers or financiers for the Vatican or something, and there’s a few princesses thrown in. They were Italians who migrated over to France.

R2, my marriage didn't win an award.

R24 yes Frank Shields was from a “Palm beach Society” family. Not sure how her mother ever got into the picture. Suddenly Susan was a shit not funny show however (time slot hit) and while Brooke Shields is a lovely woman who by some miracle seems well adjusted, she never became much of an actress.

So she's a younger Candice Bergen.

R27 pretty much. Both got way too much praise simply from going from horrible actresses to passable ones. But nice well bred women in real life who have a lot of good will in the industry.

I miss comedies like this. Everything now is fugly fat people acting retarded.

R22, if that’s you in the video, we should discuss syndicated tv networks in person, at length.

She didn’t even ask if I was ok!

Well bred, r28? Thank you!

Skipping over your spouse is the easiest path to a quickie divorce and a great way to lose the dead weight.

by Anonymousreply 33May 24, 2021 2:41 PM

She didn't thank Jesus.

by Anonymousreply 34May 24, 2021 2:47 PM

History has proven when a spouse ks overlooked in an acceptance speech, it's intentional. Whenever it happens the couple gets divorced shortly thereafter (James Cameron & Linda Hamilton, Hillary Swank & Chad Lowe come to mind).

I still miss when Brooke, Michael Jackson & Bubbles made a nice little family 🐒

Love Brooke Shields - not so much Suddenly Susan. But I’m glad it gave her some success. A seemingly decent person despite all the trauma. Wish her well.

She was prettier when she was younger

R40 pretty sure that poster meant adolescence/teenager , when most are still in their awkward stages.

She peaked very early in her beauty - most women are at their best looking around 30.
