Meredith Baxter is a guest on today’s edition of The Oprah Winfrey Show. The actress, best known for playing mom Elyse Keaton on Family Ties, will be talking about her new book called Untied: A Memoir of Family, Fame and Floundering.
Baxter talks about her life, her abusive 15 year marriage to actor David Birney, her bout with alcoholism, and her subsequent coming out as a lesbian.
And if that isn’t enough, Baxter gets a surprise visit from her Family Ties husband Michael Gross and a recorded message from her TV son, Michael J. Fox.
