Timothy Busfield And Melissa Gilbert Get Engaged

It was only 8 months ago that Timothy Busfield went on a date with a woman in Los Angeles and the next day was being accused of sexual assault. Now the actor is engaged to Melissa Gilbert. Timothy was cleared of the sexual assault charges after prosecutors decided there was not enough evidence that Timothy had groped the woman's breasts and genital area without her permission. It is tough to prove a crime like that. Melissa must have liked him though and I guess their dates went better than that one in May. I wonder if he had not been cleared if Melissa would be getting engaged to him.

Creepy meets creepier. Good match.

VIPblonde said...

One person's unwanted grope in a movie theater is another person's foreplay

MAC said...

Wasn't he the perv that was following JLH when she was young. Wasn't that revealed?

Melissa is SUCH a b**** that I can't help but think they are perfect for each other. They're both bitches. Soon to be Mr. and Mrs. Bitch.

EmEyeKay said...

I liked her other husband better. He was kinda hot in the 80s.

Frufra said...

Another small piece of my childhood right down the crapper. It's a good thing I read all the books, too, so I can hold on to that image of Half Pint. Ugh. That picture up there says it all.

Jessica said...

I don't know why I censored a word I later typed out in full. I'm not awake.

LottaColada said...

How did these two cross paths?

And where is @Cathy, she would be glad to see this is up

Frufra said...

@Em - totally. Scarecrow was hot shit!

Erin B said...

@MAC - I think you're right about that. I believe he was bothering JLH, & Matthew Fox put the beat down on him if I remember correctly.

Dagny said...

How can a woman overlook someone's past/reputation like that? Is it a denial or rationalization, i.e. "He would never do that to ME. He loves me."?

Seriously, I don't understand.

ethorne said...

That's the creepiest/funniest pic of them. I'm still laughing.

Renoblondee said...

This will be their 3rd marriage each. Good luck with that.

Redd said...

this couple is the definition of beautimous.

Cathy said...

I'm here, Lotta! Mr. and Mrs. Pervy McCreeper!

Christopher Cruz said...

*shudder*

LottaColada said...

@ Erin, I think you're getting the blinds mixed up. The one that was revealed about JLH and this perv was from when they worked together on Byrds Of Paradise.

The one with Matthew Fox defending her to my knowledge hasn't been revealed, just hugely speculated to be them.

*karen* said...

@Erin B, it was before Party of Five so there was no beatdown. The crew on The Byrds of Paradise (where Busfield played JLH's father) simply did their best to make sure that he was never alone with her. The show was canceled pretty early on (maybe after one season?) so nothing ever happened.

AKM said...

Wait...WHAT?! This seems like such a weird pairing to me. Well, they're both weird, actually, and not in the good way, but I just can't quite see them together. Mind kinda blown.

greenmountaingal said...

Ugh what a creeper. I'll never watch Revenge of the Nerds in the same way again.

Topper Madison said...

I've really got nothing against either of them, really, and I hope they both find happiness. I find it terribly cute that their engagement photo is of them working at a food kitchen. And they do look happy.

warmislandsun said...

Eeeeeeeewwwwwww. Talk about bumping uglies!

Rosemary Young said...

Timothy Buttface is a step down from Bruce Boxleitner, for sure. Way, way down.

Amber said...

I think my skin is actually trying to crawl off my body.

Erin B said...

@LottaColada - Thanks! Sorry, I must have a glitch in my blind items mental database. I must be replacing important details like this with stupid work facts. The bottom line for me is that he's a creeper, & I hope he enjoys trout pout.

MadLyb said...

I can't help think that when he closes his eyes, he see's little Laura Ingalls. Yeesh. Both are creepy - I never got over the 'Nip Tuck' episode where Gilbert had an affair with her dog.

auntliddy said...

I give this relationship 2 years max, inc engagement and possile marriage. And it will end badly. Not wishing, just telling it like it is.

Tuxedo Cat said...

I wish Melissa would lighten up on the eye makeup. Her eyes look as if they're sinking into her head. Spread the colour out there, Melissa!

EmEyeKay said...

@Fru, right? I didn't know they were married until they announced their divorce (and wondered how she scored him).

Apologies if this posts twice, my comments are getting eaten today when I comment from my phone.

auntliddy said...

My friend married an accused rapist!!!! No one cld tell her anything. Lost touch , wonder how that played out?

Cathy said...

I'm just glad to read that both of her kids are boys!

Penelope said...

Groping/harrassing/sexual pervert stories have followed this creep Busfield around for years and years.

I give the marriage six months before he's accused again.

katydid said...

Yep this will end badly probably with Melissa hitting the bottle again and another young'in groped by Busfield. Agree its good she only has sons.
Idiots!

Renoblondee said...

Right? From Rob Lowe to Bruce to him? Yikes

curlyhairslacker said...

Ew, they both look disgusting. 3rd marriage for both of them? I bet they wont make it to the altar.

L'auteur said...

This is her third husband whose last name starts with "B." Well, at least she doesn't have to toss her monogrammed towels and sheets...

ReesesPeace said...

He is so grotesque and she isn't any better. Ugh, my skin is crawling.

Frufra said...

Oh my gosh, you're right. Very clever, Melissa. I have a friend whose husbands both had the same last name. It was also the same initial as her maiden name. So, her monogram remained the same, and she didn't even have to get her driver's license changed the second go round! I hope she doesn't go for a three-peat, though - neither one nor two worked out.

MISCH said...

Oh No, don't do it.........

DewieTheBear said...

Sometimes, the right two weirdos make a love connection. Glad they're out of the dating pool for us normals.

Vera L- said...

She's hot for Santa?

Gayeld said...

I'm pretty sure neither one of them would ever had made my dating pool. *shudder*

I always got a gay vibe off of Rob and Bruce. But this one? At least she knows he Loves the Ladies.
Them going at it doggystyle so he doesn't have to gaze at that face while Little House on the Praire plays on their 80inch plasma behemoth in the bedroom, with 30something on the screen within a screen in the corner.That's my visual.

Jazzy said...

Haha, exactly.

Crystal Liechty said...

Is that Melissa Gilbert? I couldn't tell because she's wearing a different face.

All about Eve said...

Yes I remember that reveal about him stalking JLH! What a creep! Why do these women go for these guys?! He's not even anything to look at! Yuck!!

Gypsy said...

Her face???????? Wtf happened.

just curious said...

Can't believe this dude was in Revenge of the Nerds.

I'm guessing they met in a "recovery" situation. The L.A. Mission has a huge group of alcoholics giving service there. Melissa likes drama, that seems clear. From Rob Lowe to T.B. And even Bruce Boxleitner is looking creepy. He's on a commercial and has totally had plastic surgery. He was so hot in Babylon 5. So hot.

just curious said...

It's easy for a woman to say "That man beat me,rape me or touched my child." If the police say the guy didn't do it,then he DIDN't do it.

GemTwist said...

Everything you type is dumber than the last thing. Amazing. I admire your commitment to trolling.

Sis said...

I read her book too and she came across likeable...would love more blinds to be revealed though :) How on earth could she trust a guy who has been accused and what happened in May?

I wonder about Valerie Bertinelli too, her husband actually beat up a woman ex wife and was charged with battery.

RocketQueen said...

What GemTwist said. Seriously.

OMG her FACE!! Wtf, Melissa. That's just awful.

Supermom said...

Lol

Tuxedo Cat said...

I know at least 5 men who have been falsely accused. It happens more than people want to think. I've seen Melissa in interviews and she sounds very down to earth and seems to be a good mother. I guess she believes him, or that the woman exaggerated.

ljsmed said...

She looks so much older than she should... I'm all about doing little things here and there, when needed, but she looks terrible! I can't believe that someone would do that to their face!

crila16 said...

What??? Why??? I liked her so much better with Bruce. Bruce is the love of her life, whether she knows it or not. Plus Bruce is still hot.

just curious said...

I admire your commitment in responding to dumbshit.You can catch any fish with the right bait.

Sherry said...

I'm thinking Timothy the Perv has a pretty lucrative career as a director/producer and she needs a job in the industry. Viola! Now you see why she's marrying him?

just curious said...

Just like sistagirl who set herself on fire and blame the Klan.It's easy for me to paint my white co-worker a racist by telling all of my black colleagues that he is.I don't even need to give details or numerous instances.Just planting the notion in their minds will paint my white colleague as someone to be wary of.
That's why LYING about shit like being assaulted brings serious fallout.

nessa said...

@mac you know it! gross

Unknown said...

TB is NOT a welcome figure in Minnesota since Angels In the Outfield. Assaulted a make-up artist on set. He has a history.

JSierra said...

At least she got him away from the rest of us. If that's what you want in a man, you can have him.

"It's easy for a woman to say "That man beat me,rape me or touched my child." If the police say the guy didn't do it,then he DIDN't do it."

Just curious you must be preeetty bored to be trolling this hard the past couple of days. Make sure you check out the Mike Tyson post, I'm sure you will have some great racial insight on that one.

hotchacha said...

Laura Ingalls, your face is one surgery away from being Carrot Top! Don't marry that guy! I wish Pa would come back over the hill from Mankato and put a stop to your wedding.

Silly Girl said...

Not sure why all the hate for @just curious. The comment was pretty clear and rings true. Just because someone SAID someone else did something, doesn't make it true. People have been falsely accused before, that's not new. Don't forget, this is a gossip site and just because we read something here or we all gang up on Lohan, it doesn't make those things true. Even if they are revealed. It's a 'gossip' site.....

Hendrix said...

Timothy Busfeld directs pretty frequently but is not popular with crews or production people, who say he's a tyrant who is full of himself. Don't know much about Melissa except she was the queen of the Lifetime movie for about 10 years and no one could understand why.

Tru Leigh said...

Hit on enough young-enough-to-be-your-daughter and eventually you can find one who will take the bait.

JSierra said...

Silly Girl I was more referring to the comment that if the police said they didn't do it, then that means they didn't do it. That's bullshit. I realize that unfortunately, there are women who will make up something that horrible and who will accuse someone who is totally innocent of something so damaging. But there are also thousands of cases that did happen and were dismissed by the police. How can we expect our sisters and daughters to report being raped or molested when most of them feel that no one will believe them, especially when they go to the people in power for help and those people tell them that what they are saying is lies.

Take Stuebenville for example, all those cops and town officials are saying that it didn't happen, those boys didn't rape that girl. So it didn't happen, right? If the cops said it didn't happen, then it DIDN'T happen.

I typically like just curious posts and enjoy reading and responding to them, so maybe I was a little harsh in my previous comment and trolling was too strong a word. But as someone who has been in that position, I took extreme offense to that and felt the need to comment.

auntliddy said...

When someone is accused, and doesnt get charged, it means there wasnt enough proof to proscecute the case. Thats all. Has no bearing on on guilt or innocence; simply not enough proof to go to court with.

Bruce Boxleitner and Half-Pint at the LA Mission. I have a friend who think MG is just wonderful and sweet.

CowPie said...

Carrot Top marries Kris Kringle. Ewww.

Tuxedo Cat said...

@just curious

It was only a matter of time before dumbshit took the bait.

ms snarky said...

My eyes! That is quite a pair.

Somehow, I'm reminded of the promos for the movie 'Brazil'

Yikesies.

Gabby said...

@hotchacha you're totally right! They could be twins!
