Meredith Baxter, known as Elyse Keaton in Family Ties, reveal that she is a lesbian. She started to date with women seven years ago.
But she didn’t think she will become lesbian. She tells PEOPLE, “the thought of being gay “had never crossed my mind. Having been in three failed marriages to men (most famously to actor David Birney), she says of her many difficult years before coming out, “I was never comfortable with myself.” But she’s quick to add, “That doesn’t mean I was questioning.”
