During her tenure on Growing Pains, Tracey Gold struggled with anorexia nervosa. The show is still critically remembered for writing fat jokes into the scripts, when Gold put on a few pounds. As her anorexia grew worse, Gold had to leave the show, because she was so ill and frail. She returned for a couple of episodes at the end of the show, including its TV series finale.
For his part, Jeremy Miller has been public about his alcoholism which began at a young age. In 2014, Miller told Entertainment Tonight that he started drinking at the tender age of four years old.
Gold’s sister, actress Missy Gold, co-starred on Benson, as Katherine “Katie” Olivia Gatlin, for the life of the show. Tracey had a guest appearance on Benson, as Katie’s cousin, Laura.
