Melissa Gilbert releases her autobiography

Prairie Tales covers her life from when she was adopted at 1 day old until last fall when she completed the manuscript. She discusses her marriage to Bruce Boxleitner (and their 2 pre-marriage break ups), her alcoholism and her pregnancy with Rob Lowe's child. There is also a link to an interview on the Today Show on the above-linked page.

Re: Melissa Gilbert releases her autobiography

I had no idea she was an alcoholic. Is she in recovery? (I know better than to ask "Is she better now?" Addiction is something you don't get better from, it's something you get used to...)

Yes, nearly 5 years. She seems quite at ease talking about it all.

I knew about her alcoholism, but, not her Rob Lowe Baby.

I should mention here that she never had his child. She miscarried.

I've always liked Melissa. She's one of my favorite actresses.
