Sandy, he was dating Melissa Hill for a while but that whole story is crazy. He's a piece of shit person for the stuff he put Melissa through (and continues to through proxies). But this isn't her in the blind.

That poor guy cannot catch a break.

sandybrook said...

thanks Rowdy. I do remember something about him treating a woman like shit.

How can he still be living off of a sitcom that ended 30+ years ago? Is Different Strokes in syndication anywhere?

@rowdy. He was molested as a kid and has had drug issues his whole life. I remember when he was a tiny five year old on some show so I have a soft spot for him. Dating a porn star will only make your issues worse. Im sure she has been molested by some one too. All of those kids were raped.

@frn he probably eeks out a living on touring with conventions for paid autographs. There can't be anything sadder than an ex-tv star making change for a $20.

I looked at his imdb, he seems to steadily work with bit parts. At least he can keep his SAG benefits and make it to retirement with a pension in a few years. That I hope he can live somewhat comfortably off of. I remember Gary Coleman's ex-wife was trying to make a play for it after he died. That somehow she deserved it since they lived together and was like a "marriage". That went nowhere. If Gary had just lived he would of had a huge change of fortune than the one he was in.

He also is the last one alive from the main leads still alive. So any anniversaries he is the only one that can be interviewed.

He was on Everybody hates Chris too.

@timebob "He also is the last one alive from the main leads still alive. So any anniversaries he is the only one that can be interviewed."

Something about that just sounds like one of the saddest things I've ever heard. It's gotta mess with your head when you realize you're only really famous because of one show and you're the last one alive. No one to even call at night and laugh and share war stories with.

I'll tell you something - I'm the last one to give a shit about any celebrities but how everything went down with Dana Plato still really upsets me for some reason. I feel very bad about her situation and how she ended up. Very tragic.

I remember when there was a rumor that Different Strokes was a cursed show, like Poltergeist was as a movie. Charlotte Rae just passed away too, so Todd is the last one.
