You may or may not remember when I determined who would win in a fight between Katie Couric and Jane Pauley.
Back then, the Katie Couric camp was pleased to know that “their girl” would win in a fight, according to WFME statistics. The Jane Pauley camp tried their best to support their girl, but it just was too late. The fight had been sussed out and there was nothing anyone could do. It was, to say the least, a resounding success. It’s a wonder WFME hasn’t seen a “versus” fight since then.
This morning, for some strange reason, my thoughts randomly turned to 70’s teen star Kristy McNichol and TV hottie (and Brady Bunch sibling) Maureen McCormick — and who would win in an all out brawl.
It’s become an epidemic.
You may recall the two previous times Kristy McNichol (70’s mega star of such gems as Little Darlings and The Pirate Movie as well as the 80’s show Empty nest) was caught following me. The first, at a patio furniture store… The second, at the movies.
Well, on this glorious Sunday, Kristy McNichol has struck again. At the supermarket.
What began as a “oh how funny there’s Kristy McNichol” moment and evolved into “oh how ironic I saw her earlier today and now here she is again in the same place as me” suspicion has now officially become a “third times the charm as well as the confirmation that I’m being stalked by a 70’s celebrity” epidemic. Kristy McNichol is probably in my bathroom right this minute, but I’m sort of afraid to check.
Forget about Ian Ziering.
I was walking around in a place that I would never freely admit I was walking around in. (Okay, it was a patio furniture store.) I was perusing a variety of things which I would never freely admit to knowing exactly what they were. (These really cool glider patio chair things with built in cup holders.) And out of the corner of my eye — there she stood. Kristy McNichol.
Best known for her roles in Little Darlings, The Pirate Movie, and the television shows Family and Empty Nest — she was the Britney Spears of the 70’s and 80’s and I’ll never forget that I had the hugest crush on her ever.
