Catching Up With Meredith Baxter

Meredith Baxter has been a TV star since 1972 when she starred in a CBS series called Bridget Loves Birney. She went on to become beloved sitcom Mom Elyse Keaton in the long running Family Ties and then followed that by starring in (and sometimes producing) a string of successful TV movies. (My Breast, A Woman Scorned: The Betty Broderick Story and many more.)

Baxter’s successful career belied a sometimes turbulent personal life. She battled through breast cancer, domestic violence and alcoholism and even navigated a late-in-life realization that she was a lesbian.

We caught up with the actress to discuss her life today as well as her highly anticipated new series, MTV’s Finding Carter, which premieres tonight at 10/9c
