Hint #2: This TV mom was married three times, twice to the same man and is mother to one child, a boy on the show in question.
Hint #3: Our TV mom, famous for being lost in the bottle, once told her TV husband, “Joan of Ark would be a drunk too if she was married to you!”
Hint #4: While this TV mom did not appear in all 14 seasons of this hour-long show, she did make a return appearance in the series finale.
Hint #5: No stranger to the evening soap opera scene, this TV mom has also made appearances on Melrose Place and more recently 90210. Nor is she a stranger to the TV movie, having appeared in at least ten of them throughout the ‘90s and beyond.
