Abused by his father, sodomized by the publicist whom he regarded as a father and fighting back demons of the past-contributed to slide into darkness, embattled former child star Todd Bridges breaks reveals all in his in his new memoir, ‘Killing Willis: From the Diff’rent Strokes to the Mean Streets to the Life I Always Wanted.’

“Everyone wants to blame Hollywood when they take a fall,” Bridges said in an exclusive interview with BV on Books. “When people read my memoir, they will see I’m not blaming Hollywood. I’m taking full responsibility for my actions. Not a lot of people do that. A lot of people spend their lives blaming somebody else. But I will say this: No child should ever endure what I had to go through.”

Bridges was one of the biggest stars of his time, winning roles on ‘Roots,’ ‘Fish,’ ‘Little House on the Prairie,’ ‘The Waltons’ and others before becoming Willis on ‘Diff’rent Strokes,’ a sitcom about a wealthy white widower who adopts two black sons, Bridges (Willis) and Gary Coleman (Arnold). It ran from 1978 to 1986. Dana Plato, who played older sister Kimberly on the show, died of a prescription drug ovedose in 1999.



By the time you finish reading this, 15 children will have been abused; In the next five minutes, 30 more; Within the next hour, 360 more; And by tonight, close to 8,000+ children will have suffered from abuse, 5 of which will die. Child abuse has increased 134% since 1980 and is now considered a worldwide epidemic. The high jump in child abuse deaths and the shocking increase in statistics highlights the frightening lack of public knowledge.

    I just saw Todd Bridges being interviewed by Joy Behar on HLN. He has all right to be proud of his life and his children and wife are very lucky to have him in their lives. He has learned the hard way how to be a good father and husband; many people without life problems never learn that. Way to go, Todd!

    This is probably the first time I have ever commented on any site before but I just watched the Oprah interview and I have to say that Todd Bridges was completely authentic and should be very proud of where he is now. I remember last summer seeing him at ComicCon and thinking he was a “has been” and I actually feel ashamed to have judged him so harshly. You hear people who have been through rehab come out with their same story and it has become numbing for audiences but I really believe this guy is genuine and really learned from the terrible mistakes he made due to some horrific experiences. I have no reason to post this except for the fact that I really think Todd Bridges is a role model for all the people dealing with a rough life and making the wrong decisions over and over again. You can tell he was meant to be something special and this creep came along and ripped it away from him along with his innocence. I really hope God smiles on this man and gives him the life he truly deserves now for all that he has overcome. Good Luck!
