Re: David Birney - Bridget Loves Bernie

I agree with Pearlee. I read in several places that Meredith Baxter left David Birney to be with women.

So Meredith left David to be with other women but first detoured into another 5 year long marriage to a man.  Interesting.

@Judaline - Meredith BB was great as Betty Broderick - she was obsessed with her ex-husband and new wife.  I remember one scene where she drove her car into their house!

 

@Pearlee - That MSW Borbey House episode is one of my favorites!  I try to watch whenever it is on,    I know your type, so David Birney doesn't compare to David J. - HaHa!!

 

If by David J you are referring to David Janssen, then I totally concur.  I was in love with him when I was probably 12 yrs. old.  Tall, dark and handsome is my type, too!


 


@LuvSoCal   @twinsister  and I were indeed referring to David Janssen or, as we started calling him, David Handsome.

She was married and divorced before she met David Birney.  So she tried marriage three times with men before she came out as a lesbian.

Has died at 83 from Alzheimers.  I remember Bridget Loves Bernie with Meredith Baxter.  A cute show from 1972, but it was cancelled after one year due to protests about Jewish marrying Catholic. In real life, they got married after the show ended.  He was also in St. Elsewhere.  R.I.P.


I loved him in Love is a Many Splendored thing with Donna Mills. He played Mark and she was Laura. This news kind of sonbrings it all back and breaks my heart.


I loved that soap, Leslie Charleson was in it also, she was Iris.



That was where I first saw him too. I loved that show.I had young children back then & watched daily!Heart  Didn't he & Meredith Baxter have twins?

He and Baxter did have twins while she was on Family Ties in 1984. They brought her pregnancy into the show. They had other children before the twins.

I think she married 2 more men after Birney, before batting for the other team.

Remember her Mom was Whitney Blake, the Mrs. on Hazel. 


 

That's interesting! I never knew that. I love watching Hazel reruns.
