If you watched any television at all in the 1970's, you're familiar with Kristy McNichol, best known for her role as Leticia “Buddy” Lawrence on the television drama series Family. She seemed to have fallen off the face of the earth, but reappeared this last weekend with an update in People magazine via her publicist:
Kristy McNichol has been out of the public eye for 20 years. Now she's chosen to come out – to try to help kids who are being bullied.
McNichol, 49, who has lived with her partner Martie Allen, also 49, for the past two decades, decided to make a statement about her sexuality and share this photo because she is "approaching 50" and wants to "be open about who I am."
Done with acting, McNichol spends her time focusing on tennis, yoga, travel and raising her beloved miniature dachshunds. "She is very happy and healthy," says her publicist Jeff Ballard. "And she enjoys living a very private life."
That's all fine and dandy, but where are the photos of her Dachshunds?
