    Yes, Hollywood seems a very messed up place to try and live a normal life with a family.
    Maybe why some of them take their money and run far away .... a couple examples... like years ago, Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward moved with their daughters, to New England.
    Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell bought a ranch up in Idaho... somewhere up there.
    Well, bad example, I guess they are split up now. :oops: ...anyway ...

    Yes, I also read Kris was very ill with substance abuse and her brother backed off taking the kids away due to his own wife's drug use. Kris threatened to expose it if he continued. tmp_15771-ricky-nelson-kristin-harmon-272501402629744.jpg

    Now that you mention it Bonnie, I do recall reading that they weren't married at least at the time, but I liked them as a couple somehow. Goldie, think- is fabulous!

    I remember the show. I watched as a kid. I forgot about the twins.

    Yes, she is still alive and I have no idea why one website showed her dying in 1982. I looked further and see she is a very successful artist. Mrs. Kennedy purchased one of her paintings for the white house.

    I never saw the show but a couple of times. We didn't get a tv until 1954 when I was 12 going on 13 and the one channel we got was on a different network. I was a ( and still am ) a fan of Ricky's music.

    I haven't seen anyone mention Ricky's daughter, Tracy. She's an actress and played on the Father Dowling Mysteries. I really liked that show.

    When I was googling info on her mom, I saw and was reminded of Tracy. She is pretty and very talented. I've never watched Father Dowling so I didn't know she was on there.

    Yes, Kris Nelson is still alive. Also, if you ever saw Adam-12, for awhile she had the role of Officer Reed's wife.

    Kris/Ricky's daughter Tracy battled multiple cancers, I think she's still an actress, though.
