Q: A few years back, I watched a
talk show on which Julie Andrews
talked about writing children’s
books with her daughter. She mentioned that they were working on a
book about the idea that “mothers
and daughters are fathers, too.” Will
you check to see if they ever wrote
that book?
A: As if a mother-daughter children’s
book writing team weren’t a charming
enough concept, Julie Andrews and
her daughter, Emma Walton Hamilton,
wrote a book specifically about the

mother-daughter relationship.
“Thanks to You: Wisdom from Mother
& Child” was published in 2007. Though
there’s no mention of the father analogy, this is their book dealing with that
relationship.
Its jacket material reads: “Children
learn much about the world from their
mothers. But what about the unexpected wisdom mothers gain while
parenting?”
Hamilton is Andrews’ daughter from
her first marriage to designer Tony Walton. To make this situation even cuter,
Walton illustrated several of Andrews
and Hamilton’s books, including the
“Dumpy the Dumptruck” series and
“The Great American Mousical.” (The
latter book is about mice who have a

theater underneath Broadway in New
York and so is likely very close to the
heart of Andrews, who appeared on
Broadway a number of times herself,
though she always worked above
ground.)
Q: What happened to the man
who used to play Ridge Forrester on
“The Bold and the Beautiful”?

members of “The Bold and the Beautiful,” finally packed his makeup bag in
2012 and left the show after 25 years.
In a sprawling interview he did with
“Entertainment Weekly,” Moss said he
left partly due to salary issues, partly to
pursue new projects and partly just for
a change.
“I felt that I needed to go in this new
direction to give myself the chance to do
all the creative things that I haven’t had
a chance to do in 25 years because I’ve
dedicated so much of my life to this.”
The show’s production company,
Bell-Phillip Television Productions, Inc.,
issued a statement saying: “We will
always consider him family, and we
wish him only the best in all of his future
endeavors.”
However, so far only one endeavor
has involved Moss being on screen.
He hosts his own chat show, “Ronn’s
Garage,” which he also directs, produces and self-releases online (you
can see it at RonnMoss.com, or YouTube.com).
Guests have so far been friends for
the most part, including a number of
former “Bold and the Beautiful” co-stars
such as Lorenzo Lamas (who played
Hector Ramirez), Sean Kanan (who
played Deacon Sharpe) and Katherine
Kelly Lang (another original cast member, who has played Brooke Logan for
the show’s entire run).
Among his other creative projects
has been a renewed dedication to his
longtime rock band, Player. Before joining “The Bold and the Beautiful,” Moss
was a rising star in pop music. Player
released a couple of hit singles in the
late ‘70s, including “Baby Come Back,”
which was the top song on the Billboard
Hot 100 for three weeks.
Q: Before Judge Milian started on
“The People’s Court,” it was Judge
Jerry Sheindlin on the bench. Is he
related to Judge Judith Sheindlin,
also known as Judge Judy?
A: Gerald Sheindlin is, in fact, Mr.
Judge Judy. Together, Judy and Jerry
Sheindlin make up America’s premiere
(and perhaps only) judicial power
couple.
Both were judges in real life before
joining their shows (which is not always
the case — Judge Jerry’s predecessor on
“The People’s Court,” Ed Koch, was not
a judge, though he was a lawyer and the
former mayor of New York). Jerry was a
judge in the New York Supreme Court,
and Judy started out in the New York
Criminal Court and then moved on to
the family court system.
The two married in 1977, when they
were still lawyers. They were both appointed judges a few years later, both by
none other than Mayor Koch.
Judge Jerry picked up the “People’s
Court” gavel in 1999, at which point
“Judge Judy” was already a daytimeTV hit. He joked at the time about the
competition that could well up between
them.
“I think that behind every great
woman there is a man,” Sheindlin told
the “L.A. Times.” “So I may be behind
her now, but I also heard a rumor that
behind every great man there is a
woman. So we’ll have to wait and see
how it plays out.”
