    After 16 years of marriage...:( I grew up watching both of their shows...I always liked the idea of them as a couple.

    Separation

    He must have gotten tired of those awful braids and prairie dresses.

    When she constantly insists on running down a hill all the time, it has to be hard on his knees to chase her.

    She's one of those women who looks better as she's aged.
    They made a nice, wholesome looking couple. Seems like they have been together forever,not only sixteen years. My Dh and I have been together for sixteen years and it doesn't seem that long.

    That's a shame. Count me in as another one who had no idea that Boxleiter was so much older than her...both of them have aged well.

    Bruce Boxleitner is the great love of my life, but I'm sorry to see this happen. I know his first ex-wife introduced them, so I hope they can manage to have a wonderful relationship as well.

    I totally remember seeing Bruce Boxleitner on the Mary Tyler Moore show in the early 70s when I was like 12. He was so cute, I looked for his name in the credits. Then I found a photo of him in Tiger Beat or 16 magazine and put it on my wall along with David Cassidy and Bobby Sherman. :lol:

    Well, you know, she WAS subverted by the Shadows and turned into their mouthpiece/puppet and he did drop a nuclear bomb on her. That's kinda hard to get over.

    (Come on, all the "Little House" jokes and no love for Babylon 5?)

    This is what I thought of. Apparently not even love can survive a thermonuclear device. :drama:

    According to her book, yes she has, starting with a nose job when she was still on LHOTP.

    :lol: I never realized! I don't think I've seen her around for awhile though, maybe since that movie, Zoya.

    Her nose is still kind of puggish though, isn't it? Maybe I still remember her old LHOTP days.

    Maybe now Melissa can hang out at the best gay bars in Hollywood with Nellie Oleson.
