I never watch those things. They are ridiculous. Whatever happened to Richard Thomas? He continued working and has had a career that most actors would envy (remember, most actors can’t even make a steady living in their chosen profession).
There’s another YouTube series called “The Tragic Life and Sad Ending of…” And again, ridiculous. There’s one for Michelle Phillips, of the Mamas and the Papas. Her daughter, Chynna, commented on it - “My mother is still alive and well!”
I remember seeing an interview online some years back. The interviewer implied that Thomas was in a way a “failure” as he didn’t achieve superstar status after his time on The Waltons. That was ridiculous of course. He’s in a wonderful position of having regular work on various TV series, TV movies, and especially the Theater. His not being a “superstar” puts him at an advantage - he is living a comfortable lifestyle while being also able to live a reasonably normal life with family and friends.
These videos are right up there with "Dark secrets the cast of -name of show- tried to hide." OR "Why hollywood dumped -insert actor's name-" They expect viewers to have dumbfounded reactions when in reality it's things they already know or it's just flat out invasion of privacy on the actor's parts. At least the Waltons did not fall victim to those clickbaity videos as much as alot of other shows.
