Actress Angie Harmon (Law & Order) spoke to the Charlotte City Council today, making a passionate plea urging the council to approve plans for the proposed “Studio Charlotte” and the former Eastland Mall site.

During an economic development meeting earlier today, Harmon told council members that she is raising her three daughters in Charlotte because she loves the city, but she does not like having to spend many months away from them in Los Angeles filming her TNT series Rizzoli & Isles.

She said her current plan is to retire when her daughters reach high school in order to spend more time with them, but that if a new studio was built in Charlotte, she could continue to work locally while also raising her girls.

Harmon makes a great case for approving the new studio, while also setting a shining example of the kind of heartfelt celebrity support the North Carolina film industry as a whole needs in order to prevent the state’s vital film incentives from expiring at the end of 2014.

Angie Harmon, Jason Sehorn split after 13 years

CONNECTTWEETLINKEDINEMAILMORE

Actress Angie Harmon and her former NFL player hubby Jason Sehorn are calling it quits.

The split is amicable, People reports, with a statement from Harmon’s rep that says: “For the sake of their children, they ask for respect and privacy as they navigate this time in their lives,” her rep says. The split was confirmed to USA TODAY.

Harmon, who stars in the TNT drama Rizzoli & Isles, and Sehorn have three daughters: Finley, 11, Avery, 9, and Emery, 5.

Two years ago, Harmon spoke to YourTango.com about the challenges of juggling marriage and work. Her show films in Los Angeles, but the family’s home base in Charlotte, N.C.

“We don’t get out Friday nights early enough to catch a flight home,” Harmon said. “We sometimes meet in Texas, a 2½ hour flight for both of us. I miss my kids, so it’s hard, but my children are so understanding.”

She also said of marriage: “You have to be really considerate of each other, really kind to each other. It’s a lot of work, really.”

But it looks like she had a Happy Halloween.

I was very excited to open a package from DS Laboratories containing 3 products (if they all work, my life will be complete!!):

~ DS Labs Viterol A~

Acne Update:

It’s been a month since I quit taking Spironolactone, and I feel so much better! I declined the antibiotic cream my dermatologist prescribed and decided to see if the DS Labs product (above) works. I also started moisturizing at night with coconut oil which has anti-bacterial properties, and so far, so good! My skin’s been clearer than it was on Spiro!!

Healthy Eating:

I traveled to Florida this week to visit my parents. We ate out almost every meal, so it was hard to eat super healthy. But I followed my usual regimen of getting salad instead of french fries, and ordering grilled fish with veggies as often as possible. Fortunately, south florida restaurants specialize in fresh catch fish! I even got a relatively healthy pizza (here’s a pic)!

Not a flattering picture, I know, but this Cauliflower Pizza was piled high with cauliflower and tasted great!

Who can resist these little dessert shots? I had the chocolate peanut butter bomb!

Exercise:

When in Rome, they say, do as the romans do. . . so I joined my mom and her friends at their community exercise class which is lead by one of my mom’s friends (who is a former health club instructor and certified trainer). The regulars are in their 70s and 80s, but there were younger visitors each day and the class was challenging for all ages!

Sadly, I had to leave this . . .

& come home to this . . .

Some women really know how to make an entrance. For Angie Harmon, nothing — not even a nonstop schedule filming the hot TNT series Rizzoli & Isles in Los Angeles — was going to keep her from surprising her husband, Jason Sehorn, at their North Carolina home for his 40th birthday. No, Harmon didn’t drive up, ring the doorbell, and yell, “Surprise!” Instead, she crossed a patch of woods (“I didn’t care if I wound up with poison ivy on my face”), sneaked through a neighbor’s yard, and then wriggled through her home’s doggy door to astound her entire family.

Tears, both happy and sad, are part of Harmon’s life these days. On a sunny Saturday afternoon, the raven-haired former model has just completed a 90-hour (yes, seriously: 90) workweek. It has been 10 full days since she’s seen her clan — Sehorn and daughters Finley, 7, Avery, 6, and Emery, 2 — and she is fighting off a major mommy meltdown. “I’m a mess. I’ve lost 10 pounds since I got here,” she says in her signature smoky voice, made famous on Law & Order back in the late nineties. “This is the hardest time in my life, for sure.” But Harmon says she will get through it, and that her precious girls and well-tended marriage will thrive. She made a heart-wrenching choice, but for the right reason: her kids’ welfare.

Tackling Her Toughest Decision

Moving the family from L.A. to Charlotte, NC, last August has obviously complicated Harmon’s and Sehorn’s lives colossally. There’s now a discouraging 2,000-plus miles between home and the studio where Rizzoli & Isles is filmed — though the family reunites on the West Coast during summer vacation.

“It breaks my heart that I don’t see my daughters every day, don’t get to hug them and brush their hair,” Harmon admits. Still, she set her sights on North Carolina for her girls’ sake, and has never looked back. She sums up the state’s special allure: “There’s a church on every corner as opposed to just a Starbucks…. The people are just a little nicer — more real.”

Harmon didn’t like what the kids were picking up in the fast-moving, flashy Hollywood world. She was horrified to learn that daughter Avery had been hearing friends talk about “sexual things,” like making out with a boy. “Things were just going too fast for her,” Harmon recalls with a shudder. “And she had night terrors, which stopped the day we got to North Carolina.” Also, says Harmon, her once-shy oldest daughter has become more outgoing. Even with the logistical challenges, Harmon says, “I’m happy that we moved. One day, my kids are going to say, ‘Remember when we sat in the yard and fed the geese?’ I’m so proud that I can give them these memories. And I’m more grounded and centered in North Carolina because it’s a slower way of life. We go bike riding or go to the ice cream parlor.”

Of course, the decision to relocate wouldn’t have happened without serious support from Sehorn. As Harmon’s career was in a lull, the couple planned the next stage of their family’s life somewhat sheltered from the spotlight. They forged ahead with heading east — only to have the Rizzoli & Isles job offer crop up. Sehorn knew that the role was too good to lose and must have seen the excitement in his wife’s eyes when she spoke about it. “He says, ‘Baby, you wouldn’t be who you are if you weren’t an actress,'” Harmon explains. “He gives me the freedom to do my job, which is pretty fantastic.”

Mommying Across the Miles

“I’m calling him all the time to ask, ‘What did you do next?'” she admits — so she can visualize each part of the family’s day. And she has taught the 6’2″ former New York Giant some of her secret mom moves, like the routine of rocking baby Emery to sleep every night (a favorite blanket plays the starring role). “At first, he was like, ‘Really?'” she says, laughing. “I told him, ‘When she’s 15 and doesn’t want anything to do with you, you’re going to remember those nights when you rocked her to sleep, and you’re going to thank me.'” Over dinner, Dad and the girls carry on the ritual that Harmon initiated of playing Roses and Thorns, wherein each family member relays the highlights (roses) and disappointments (thorns) of the day.

Still, no matter how much they Skype and share by phone, Harmon is bound to be absent for some milestones. Yesterday, for instance, a phone call with the girls nearly unraveled her: “The baby is a great talker, and she’s improving every day. So she got on the phone and said, ‘Mommy, I mith you so muth.’ She has a lisp now! I just lost it.” Harmon knew that she had to take a deep breath and pull it together before her oldest girl jumped on the line. “I tried to cover it up and be strong for her, but Finley said, ‘Oh, yeah. Mommy’s crying.'”

Missing the little everyday mom moments is hard — and Harmon is hard on herself. “When I feel like I’m not doing what I am supposed to as a mother, I will torture myself,” she says. “I don’t know how to deal with it. I find some consolation in the fact that all mommies feel it. If there was a way to cure mommy guilt, I would bottle it and be a bazillionaire.”

A fellow actor who also left her family to film a hit show — The Closer’s Kyra Sedgwick — gave Harmon some advice that sees her through her loneliest low points. “Kyra told me to keep my heart where my feet are. So when I’m at work, my heart stays at work, and when I’m at home, my heart stays at home.” She acknowledges that it’s easier said than done, but says, “With that idea in mind, I can sort of stay on track.”

Just as Harmon doesn’t claim to be the perfect parent, she won’t pretend that her darling daughters are always cherubs. They fight, for sure. “I have them hug and kiss,” she says. “And it has to be reciprocal. Usually, if only one girl is doing the hugging, it eventually makes the other one laugh, and so it all works out.”

Teaching her children to be kind to people and give back is another of Harmon’s ongoing parenting projects. Until recently, she used a point system she’d devised by which they could earn rewards. But she discovered that they were only being nice to each other to nab a reward. Harmon therefore set out to teach them that they must give in order to receive. “I was yanking on the girls to give up their old toys and telling them to think about the little ones who don’t have anything, but they just didn’t understand at all,” she says. “So I decided to show them pictures of poor children in other countries, and now they get it. We all take big bags of toys to Goodwill.”

Harmon takes pride in instilling her values in the girls. Some of the guidelines she reveres: “They need to know that everybody needs to be respected. There is no one on this planet who’s better than they are, and they aren’t better than anybody else. Treat others as you would have them treat you. And you’re not pretty on the outside unless you’re pretty on the inside.”

Navigating “New Girl” Status

Although her kids were quickly settled into their new home, Harmon had concerns about managing her bicoastal life. She worried — a lot — about how she would forge a new community in North Carolina in the mere slivers of time she had there. “My biggest insecurity is that my personality is too much, and as I get older, it’s just getting bigger,” she acknowledges. “I was scared that the women in North Carolina might not like me. I get so excited about things — maybe too excited. I definitely come on strong. So I tried to rein myself in,” she says.

Harmon turned for reassurance to dear friend and NASCAR champ Jimmie Johnson and his wife, Chandra, who live in Charlotte and had encouraged her to move the family there. “They told me, ‘Don’t calm down; we love you for who you are,'” she recalls. As it turned out, Harmon need not have worried about her exuberant personality; it certainly didn’t scare anyone off. “Jason and I have a group of about 10 couples who opened their homes and hearts and welcomed us like nothing I have ever seen before,” she says, visibly moved. “I wasn’t expecting to be embraced like that.”

Harmon is one to reciprocate: “I’m the kind of person who wants the people around me to be comfortable, to laugh, and to have a fabulous time — I want them to be as happy as I am.”

The newfound circle isn’t just about playdates and parties. When Harmon is away, Sehorn and the girls often make the rounds to different families on the weekends, having breakfast at one house and later barbecuing elsewhere in the neighborhood. It’s that sense of community that continues to impress Harmon, who adds that she tends to be gun-shy about trusting people after having been burned in relationships in the past. (She’s too polite to name names or dish any details.) “All of these women back in North Carolina know that I am gone, and they’re all taking care of my children and helping my husband,” she says. “I love them so much.”

Prayer Power

This warm, family-focused embrace is different than what Harmon experienced during her own upbringing in Dallas. An only child, she describes her youth as “normal, but lonely” and recalls “trying to figure out things to do” in her apartment complex. Her parents, who were both professional models in the 1970s, divorced when she was a child. At 15, the genetically blessed part-Greek and part-Native American Harmon won Seventeen magazine’s cover girl search. Right after graduating from high school, she headed to Europe, where she worked for top-notch designers like Calvin Klein and Giorgio Armani.

Angie Harmon the actress emerged a few years later. A part on Baywatch Nights (the spin-off of the hit TV series Baywatch), which aired from 1995 to 1997, as a private eye eventually led to her breakout role as the conservative assistant district attorney on Law & Order. Television roles as titanium-tough crime-fighting women have largely become her specialty. Harmon can’t explain why she’s been typecast as a gutsy civil servant, but she would gladly play anyone from the girl next door to the First Lady.

When her career hit a wall a couple of years ago, she figured it was time to shelve her acting aspirations. However, before she embraced full-time motherhood, she prayed for guidance about which path to pursue. “I said to God, ‘If the plan is to raise these girls, I will wholeheartedly do that, because they are so important to me,'” she recalls. “Once I made that transition in my heart, the script was literally on my doorstep the next day.” She took that as a sign that her acting days were not yet behind her.

While faith has always been a touchstone in Harmon’s life, it has come to play a bigger and bigger role. “As a mother, I can’t be close enough to God. I am always praying for protection,” says Harmon, who loves The Power of a Praying Parent book series by Stormie Omartian. Right now, she and Sehorn are “shopping around” for the right place of worship in Charlotte. It’s not a process they want to rush. “We like to talk to the people in the church, and a pastor has to be a leader to our family,” she says.

Until they find a pew that fits, Harmon is happy to improvise: “Me? I pray everywhere — in the shower, on a plane, in traffic, you name it. When I feel like I have had enough, I will literally take a knee, bow my head, and beg God for help and strength. I know not to beg Him for patience, because then He gives me situations in which I have to grow more patient; I learned that lesson! And if I am having a wonderful day, I will stop to thank Him. It’s a relationship.”

Love, Trust, and Talking It Out

The other key relationship in Harmon’s life — her marriage — is going strong at the 10-year mark. Introduced by a mutual friend in 1999, Harmon and Sehorn quickly clicked. In March of the following year, Sehorn managed to render the rambunctious Harmon nearly speechless when he crashed her guest appearance on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno and proposed on one knee. It took the flabbergasted Harmon several seconds to compose herself and exclaim, “Oh, my God, baby…YES!”

Harmon explains that she and Sehorn are the classic “opposites attract” couple. “He’s like a steady tugboat,” she explains, “while I bring on the shock waves.” She says one of the pleasures of marriage is celebrating their differences: “As time goes on, the different discoveries you make about each other. You think you know that person inside and out, that you know every single inch of that person, and then you find something new.”

For instance, Sehorn surprised her recently by revealing his vulnerable side. Says Harmon, “He’s a football player, so it’s not like he’s the most emotional person. We’ve been through the birth of three children, and hardships that happen in life and a marriage, and I’d never seen him cry.” But on the day Harmon left to film her show in California, as the couple prepared to say good-bye, “I went to give him a hug. Jason’s got a huge chest — that’s one of my favorite parts about him. It’s like hugging a bear,” she says, stopping for a moment to close her eyes and sigh. “And when I hugged him, I felt his chest collapse. He just crumbled.” She hesitates for a moment, then shrugs and adds, “He’s going to hate me for putting this out there, but it was so beautiful and so wonderful.”

Sehorn, too, has glimpsed a softer side of his spouse since their location separation kicked in. “He’s really seeing that I need him. I’m usually very much an ‘I can do it myself’ kind of person. I always had a part of my heart that was guarded. It’s like, I will give you 95% of my heart, and I’ll keep this 5% for me just in case something goes wrong,” she says with surprising candor. “But you can’t go through life like that. You have to be 100% invested in the relationship.” So how does she overcome that self-protective instinct? “To be honest, I don’t know that I am completely there yet,” she says after mulling it over for a moment. “But I know that I continuously want to work on that pattern and change it.”

With a decade of marriage behind her, Harmon will attest to one rule she always follows: “Communication is a huge, huge thing in marriage. And it doesn’t matter if it’s uncomfortable or brings up bad stuff,” she says. “You really have to have the guts to talk to each other.”

Just not in front of the kids. Harmon and Sehorn will never have an all-out fight or even a disagreement in front of the girls. “We present a unified front,” she says. “There’s just no reason to create that trouble in their hearts. I’ve read enough books to know that it’s traumatic for them.” She adds that she and Sehorn do hug and hold hands in front of their daughters. “We have to be an example of a good and healthy relationship,” she says. And it’s a traditional relationship at that, says Harmon, “Every night, whether we’re eating in or out, Jason is the one to say grace, because he’s the father and the head of the household.”

And when the kids are sound asleep, Harmon prides herself on spicing things up for the Horn. Not too long ago, the couple found themselves relaxing late on a Saturday night. Harmon admits she was feeling antsy. “I’m dangerous when I’m bored,” she says, laughing. So she jazzed up the rules of a board game that they were playing: Sehorn had to drink a shot of tequila (there’s a coffee-flavored kind that he favors) if he lost a point, while Harmon had to strip if she lost one. “Of course, he had no idea that I had already cheated and had seven outfits on,” she says, with a wink.

Weekend wonderland

Aside from such fun and games, her weekends in North Carolina are all about family time. “I’ll wake up with my girls in the bed with me, and we’re like kittens. We’re all over each other, and Jason’s all scrunched up because we’ve pushed him over to the far side of the bed. I love being nestled into their necks.” Later, she and the kids might draw and color for a while and then head outdoors for a bike ride or a hike. In the late afternoon, country music blasts from the kitchen (Harmon loves to feed her family nutritious fare; she is a spokesperson for the Love Your Veggies campaign and has appeared in Got Milk? advertisements with her daughters). Often, the scent of her Greek chicken dish wafts throughout the house. “You cut up a whole chicken and put Hidden Valley Italian Ranch dressing all over it with a little Worcestershire sauce, and then you bake it. Heaven,” she says. “My happiest time is when the girls are all running around, and I have to step over the dog to get to the fridge.”

So much has changed for Harmon in the past year — a new home in an unfamiliar town, a new show in the city she’d just left, and the challenge of being away from her loved ones. But figuring out how to make the most of these challenges is part of her nature. “I don’t ever want to get to the point where I think I know everything,” she says. “It could be about parenting, my marriage, or my career…I just want to keep learning.” And whether she’s in North Carolina, California, or someplace in between, she’s set to do exactly that.

This Christmas was a big one for actress Angie Harmon and her beau, Days of Our Lives actor Greg Vaughan. The two shared a holiday with their kids all mixed together, and it seems the DOOL star thought this made the perfect setting for a marriage proposal. Angie and Greg are now engaged!

Both Angie and Greg shared photos to their Instagram pages after the sweet proposal. The first photo in each post shows them posed on the stairs with their kids lined up behind them, everybody wearing matching Christmas pajamas.

As fans may know, Greg and Angie have six children between the two of them. He has three sons with his ex-wife, Touriya Haoud — Jathan, Cavan, and Landan. Angie has three daughters with ex-husband Jason Sehorn — Emery, Finley, and Avery.

Everybody wore big smiles in the family photo that was taken shortly after Greg proposed to Angie. She has her arms around his shoulders, clasped across his chest, her engagement ring visible on her left hand. Greg has one of his hands gently placed over hers.

Additional photos in each Instagram post showed the moment of the proposal. It appears that Angie was completely surprised by Greg’s big move as he opened a ring box and got down on one knee.

Angie’s caption, which Greg shared on his page, quipped that it was a “Marry, Marry Christmas” for the family. She added hashtags about how they have a modern “Brady Bunch” with their six combined children, and it looks as if all the kids were pretty excited by this engagement.

One of the other photos in the post showed Angie and Greg from the back, with all of the kids swarmed together in a big group hug. The two middle pictures showed the moment that Greg surprised Angie, and it looks as if he may have done this as all the kids were lined up on the stairs to pose for the family photo.

It’s clear that this caught her off-guard but that it was also a very happy surprise. Fans and co-stars flooded Angie and Greg’s posts with notes of congratulations.

The former Rizzoli & Isles actress received notes from celebrities such as Rebecca Romijn, Annabeth Gish, Ever Carradine, Meghan McCain, Gabby Reece, and Tory Burch. General Hospital star Kirsten Storms congratulated Greg, and GH fans may remember that they worked together when he played Lucky Spencer on the show years ago. Some of Greg’s Days of Our Lives co-stars — like Galen Gering, Nadia Bjorlin, Eric Martsolf, Alison Sweeney, and Robert Scott Wilson — posted notes of congratulations as well.

Greg and Angie started generating some buzz about a possible romantic relationship in early 2018, and a few months later, they nonchalantly went official with their pairing. It’s far too soon to know what their wedding plans will entail, but fans will be anxious to learn more in the weeks ahead.

“Marry” Christmas!
Rizzoli & Isles star Angie Harmon got a special holiday surprise on Christmas Day when she got a shiny new engagement ring from her new fiancé, Greg Vaughan.

The Secret Life Of ‘NCIS’ Star Mark Harmon’s Sister Kristin Harmon Nelson

Mark Harmon’s sister, Kristin Nelson, had quite the life before passing away in 2018 at 72 years old. Long before Harmon made a name for himself starring on NCIS, Kristin married into the same family that starred in the hit 1950s sitcom, The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet. While Kristin seemed to have a bright future, her life fell apart at the seams amid a battle with drugs and alcohol. Here is a look at the secret life of Kristin and how Mark Harmon tried to help her along the way.

Kristin was born into a family that already enjoyed a small measure of fame. Her father, Tom Harmon, was a popular football player who won the Heisman trophy and was drafted into the NFL. Her mother, Elyse Knox Harmon, had minor success as an actress in Hollywood.

Things really turned around for Kristin the day she met Ricky Nelson, whose parents starred on the hit show, The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet. According to People, Kristin adored the Nelsons as a young girl and later fell hard for Ricky.

Kristin and Ricky tied the knot in 1963 after she turned 18 years old. As soon as the marriage was official, Kristin appeared on The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet as the couple’s new daughter-in-law. The part launched Kristin into the spotlight and forever changed her life. Kristin and Ricky welcomed their first child together six months after exchanging vows.

Their daughter, Tracy Nelson, would go on to become a child star and appeared with Lucille Ball in Yours, Mine, and Ours. Kristin and Ricky had three more children: twins Gunnar and Matthew, and Sam.

Ricky and Kristin’s marriage falls apart

Ricky and Kristin’s relationship started strong, but the couple soon faced obstacles as he continued his career as a rock star. In an interview in the late 1980s, Kristin revealed that things went south when she decided to go with Ricky on tour.

A life of partying, however, was not the solution and she quickly realized that they both had a drug problem. Kristin attempted to fix her addiction by going into rehab and briefly convinced Ricky to do the same.

Unfortunately, Ricky did not finish his treatment program and Kristin eventually filed for divorce in 1980. Over the next two years, the estranged couple fought a bitter custody battle in court before they reached an agreement in 1982. The next few years were hard times for Kristin, who made a living as an assistant casting director in Hollywood.

Unable to make ends meet, Kristin moved in with Harmon and his wife, Pam Dawber. Ricky, meanwhile, tragically died in a plane crash in 1985. Ricky was flying with other members of his band and his fiancée, Helen Blair.

Mark Harmon steps in

With Kristin struggling with alcoholism, Harmon convinced her to go to rehab. Kristin finished a treatment program and later admitted that only Harmon could have convinced her to seek help. But Kristin’s relationship with the NCIS star quickly soured and the two fought over custody of her youngest child, Sam, in 1987.

Mark Harmon was granted temporary custody over the 12-year-old, and a judge ordered Kristin to stay 200 feet away from the Harmons at all times. Despite their obvious struggles, Kristin eventually won back custody after both sides reached an agreement.

Sam would go on to attend Boston College, where he started his own band called H Is Orange. He opened up about his mother’s life in an interview in 2016 and revealed that she had retired to a home in New Mexico. Sam also shared how he and Kristin remained close over the years and worked out their differences.

Kristin passed away from a heart attack at the age of 72. Her oldest child, Tracy, confirmed the sad news on social media, calling her death both unexpected and sudden.

Mark Harmon has not commented on his relationship with Kristin over the years, so it is difficult to say if they were close when she died.

NCIS actor Mark Harmon’s sister, Kristin Harmon, died on April 27 at the age of 72 — and her life was anything but ordinary.

The late actress and painter’s daughter Tracy Nelson confirmed her mother’s passing on Facebook on May 1, writing in a post that Kristin “passed away suddenly and unexpectedly” of a heart attack.

A one-time golden girl, Kristin was born to football star and Heisman trophy winner Tom Harmon and actress Elyse Knox Harmon. She was the older sister of Mark, 66, and former model Kelly Harmon, 69.

When Kristin was 12, she met Ricky Nelson, who was the son of ’50s superstars Ozzie and Harriet and starred alongside his family on their long-running sitcom and radio show, The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet. Kristin fell in love with their family and later, she fell in love with Ricky. She married him in 1963 when she was 18 years old and was thrust into the spotlight after appearing on the family’s show as Ozzie and Harriet’s real-life and TV daughter-in-law.

The couple’s first child, Tracy, was born six months after their marriage. As a pre-schooler, Tracy appeared in Yours, Mine, and Ours alongside Lucille Ball and went on to star in The Father Dowling Mysteries. In 1967, the Nelson’s twin sons Gunnar and Matthew were born and would eventually form their rock band, Nelson. Their fourth child, Sam, was born in 1974.

Kristin and Ricky seemed to be living their happily ever after — but soon, they got caught up in a lifestyle of partying.

“We were hippie rock ‘n’ rollers,” she said in a 1987 PEOPLE cover story. “We did what everyone else was doing all those years.”

“At first we were in it together,” she continued. “I tried to be one of the guys, to fix the marriage by going on the road and being involved in road stuff that is really not good for anyone. After a while we were totally messed up, both of us. I got into therapy and so did he for a while but then he started not showing up. I tried telling my family, there’s a drug problem here and we’ve all got to help. But they totally denied there was anything wrong.”

In 1980, Kristin filed for divorce and was temporarily granted custody of the children and spousal support. Accusations of drug and alcohol use and poor parenting were exchanged before the divorce was finalized in 1982.

During this time, Kristin said she continued to use drugs and to drink “quite heavily.” Since she was too drunk to paint for a living, she said she took a job as an assistant casting director at a salary of $200 a week. For two years before Kristin’s divorce, Kelly said she took care of Sam every afternoon and all day Saturday; and for the next 18 months, Sam lived with Kristin’s parents before moving into Mark’s home with his wife Pam Dawber.

Then in 1985, Ricky died along with his fiancée Helen Blair and five members of his road company in a plane crash while traveling to Texas. As Kristin continued to spiral, Mark stepped in and urged her to sign herself into rehab.

“Nobody but my brother could have talked me into this because I trusted him,” Kristin said. “A voice inside me said, ‘For once in your life, let somebody help you.’ “

After her rehab stint, Kristin was informed in 1987 that Mark and Pam would be taking her to court to seek custody of her son Sam, who was just 12 at the time. At their hearing that July, Mark was awarded temporary custody of Sam. Kristin was ordered to stay 200 yards away from her brother’s house and from anywhere Pam was working.

During the increasingly vitriolic trial in August, there was mud-slinging by both sides. As contentious accusations flew, Mark finally approached Kristin’s attorney and said, “We don’t want to go any further with this. Too much blood has been spilled.”

By the end of the day, the family had worked out an agreement in which Kristin retained custody, Mark was granted visiting rights and Kristin, Sam and Mark agreed to enter family therapy.

Sam went on to graduate from Boston College and formed his band H Is Orange. In a 2016 interview with Medium, Sam said that he and Kristin were “absolutely close” and that she was living in New Mexico.

“As you get older, things that were important aren’t important anymore,” he said. “Problems aren’t problems anymore. You work through them, or you don’t. But for the most part, you hope to. I think we’re in a good way together, and we have a good relationship.”

The exclusive bubble known as Hollywood is like a small island with too many people, which is why not every actor can expect to be famed at the same level as Jennifer Lawrence, despite their talent.
