I don’t know if they have really made up, but a reunion probably wouldn’t have happened if there was not some reaching out.

It was a different time when they were shooting their hit sitcom.

He was A list and at the time, she was not far behind.

At that point in his life, our actor preferred spending time with men rather than women and his co-star used to talk smack to him about his dating preferences. The thing is, as the show became a larger hit, it was not just her talking to him about it, but all his “people,” and then the next thing you know he had a girlfriend who became his wife.

They couldn’t have their huge money maker get caught with a man.

It would ruin him.

The co-star who talked to him like that is not the same person now she was then.

She would probably condemn her old self.

You would think this was some show from the 1950’s, but it wasn’t.

It was decades later.

All of you know who these two people are.

Sitcom: Family Ties

Michael J. Fox

Co-star: Meredith Baxter

Wife: Tracy Pollan

Meredith Baxter: Yes, I’m gay

(CNN) — “Family Ties” actress Meredith Baxter made the media rounds Wednesday confirming the rumors that she is a lesbian.

“It was a later in life recognition,” the actress explained to Matt Lauer on the “Today” show Wednesday.

The National Enquirer recently ran a story about Baxter being spotted on a lesbian cruise through the Caribbean with a “female friend,” which was then picked up by celebrity blogs. As a result, the 62-year-old decided to tell her fans herself.

“I didn’t want some tabloid to take the story and make it up,” Baxter said in the interview. “I wanted it to be in my own words.”

Baxter was also interviewed on Sirius XM Radio’s “The Frank DeCaro Show.”

Coming out was a difficult thing for the quiet actress to do. She told Lauer on “Today” that she’s always “lived a very private life. To come out and disclose stuff is very antithetical” to who she is.

Baxter told DeCaro that she knew she could be outed when she went on the cruise with her partner, Nancy Locke, but she went anyway. – Source
