Really Famous with Kara Mayer Robinson

Dec 7, 2021

In honor of tonight's ABC special presentation of Diff'rent Strokes + The Facts of Life, I'm re-airing my talk with Todd Bridges from last year.

Todd has been through the ringer. But he's come out OK. I won't bury the lead: He has 29 years clean and sober. We get into that, and I found out the hard way why he bristles at interviews.

You'll hear about:

  • Where he is now
  • Who he is now
  • What he went up against
  • Why he's media-averse
  • His new HBO documentary, Showbiz Kids
  • Diff'rent Strokes
  • What you talkin about, Willis?
  • Little House on the Prairie
  • Roots
  • Scott Baio
  • Fame
  • Black Lives Matter
  • racism
  • being targeted by the police
  • emotional damage
  • his experiences with sexual abuse
  • how he rebounded
  • how fake Hollywood can be
  • his favorite TV shows
  • my favorite TV shows
  • family, kids and why he's a homebody
