For seven years, Meredith Baxter, who played the mother on the 80s TV hit, "Family Ties," has been keeping a secret. She's been dating women. She finally came out on The Today Show today.
From The Today Show site:
Now, Baxter, who played the devoted hippie mom constantly butting heads with her conservative kids on “Family Ties,” is making a public admission.
“I am a lesbian and it was a later-in-life recognition,” she told Matt Lauer on TODAY. “Some people would say, well, you’re living a lie and, you know, the truth is – not at all. This has only been for the past seven years.”
