Maybe not just Valerie, but she was definitely the case that started it all (at least, at her level [i.e., not Chuck Cunningham] ). The one that shocked all of Hollywood (well, maybe that's a bit dramatic, but you get it, lol).

Also, fun fact, if you care : I'm reading the scripts in production order!
He played Cody on Step by Step with Patrick Duffy and Suzanne Somers. He was introduced as the cousin in episode 4 and promoted to regular by episode 6. He stayed until season 5 when he was arrested under domestic abuse charges. Turns out he was protecting his kids from his alcoholic wife. He won custody and got to appear in the second to last episode of the series.

Also the reason my namesake production company went belly up

Lorimar, above, explains who Sasha Mitchell is. He became the break-out star on Step By Step.

Hayley Mills' Disney films are wonderful. I'm sure Disney execs were hoping to re-capture that magic on GMMB.

I think it only rocked Hollywood because Valerie took the case public. Prior to that, when TV stars got fired, they just vanished. To some extent, Suzanne Somers may have been a trailblazer, too. They didn't stay silent when they got axed.

Yeah I would say Suzanne’s situation was similar, only she wasn’t the namesake of her show. Ironically both worked on Lorimar shows but Suzanne found them to be very adequate paycheck wise.

Well, I think Suzanne Somers later realized what a huge mistake it had been to demand a 500% raise in salary on Three's Company, while holding up production. By the time of SBS, Suzanne had been reduced to doing Thighmasters commercials. I'm sure she welcomed a Lorimar Television paycheck.

Sorry to hear that, Lorsie!

But, on a happier note, Valerie says the main people involved in that get along now.

Oh that's right, SM was on S-b-S. I remember Cody, "duuuude", lol.

Suzanne was, yes, but regarding Valerie, it rocked Hollywood because it was the first time a seemingly untouchable star ("They can't fire me, I'm the show's title!") on an eponymous series was fired from their own show.

"reduced"? I see what you mean, but, since being banished from TC, that woman has done nothing but roll in dough --- and I ain't talkin' the kind of dough at Edna's Edibles! It's amazing how rich that gadget and all of her books and money-handling have made her (I wouldn't mind being able to call her "Aunt Suzanne", haha).

So Dieting is the only season 1 script you haven't posted? Plus TSP since it has Molly and Cindy.

Dieting, The Facts of Love, and The Slumber Party, yes. So, three Season One scripts left. Should I save them for next year?

Whatever you want is fine with me. Do you know if TLC is around somewhere?

I have searched for a long time for The Little Chill, but I've never found it. I'm sure it's "out there", somewhere. But whoever is holding onto it has it locked away.

Ah too bad, what about Front Page, or Sex Symbol?

I'd love Sex Symbol, Dear Me, Green-Eyed Monster, Pretty Babies, The Little Chill... any of the post-season-one Lost Girl scripts. Unfortunately, I haven't found most of them, yet: just Gossip and The New Girl, part 2. Eventually, though, I will find them. We're lucky that there are quite a few, as that helps our chances in finding some of them.

Front Page is the Cafeteria-era script I'd most like to see. I want to see how Sue Ann and Cindy's final Eastland scene was scripted. I don't believe they were supposed to vanish into thin air like they did, due to what I suspect was bad editing.

True, one minute they’re at the table the next they’re off to the background
