Where are they now?
Linda played the role of Alice, which got it’s start on the movie “Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore” in 1974, which is what this series was based on, although the movie was a drama, and the TV show was a comedy. Ellen Berstyn played the role of Alice on the original movie. Linda has appeared in many made-for-TV (and cable) movies, even producing a couple (the most recent being “Stolen Memories: Secrets from the Rose Garden”, which also starred Mary Tyler Moore). Currently, she is on the sitcom “Conrad Bloom” on NBC, where she plays the title-character’s mother Florie. She has also appeared in Barney Miller as Detective Janice Wentworth, before the TV series “Alice”.
Polly played the role of Florence Jean Castleberry, the sassy red-headed waitress. According to the show, she had been a waitress for Mel for quite some time before the series started. In 1980, Polly left Alice to star in her own sitcom “Flo”, which lasted about a season, although it was spread out over two actual seasons (it started late in the 1979-1980 season). Since “Alice”, she has been in quite a few movies, mostly made-for-TV movies, although right after “Alice”, she was in “Gremlins”. She has also been in several TV series since “Alice”, most recently “The Client”. She has also appeared on “Home Improvement” many times as Jill’s mother Lillian. Most recently, she was in the movie remake “The Parent Trap”
Vic played the always grouchy boss Mel, a role he played on the movie “Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore”. He was also in many TV movies and also did guest spots on various shows, including “The Love Boat”, and “All in the Family”. Unfortunately, Vic is no longer with us, having passed away on May 25, 1990.
Beth played the role of ditzy Vera. She hasn’t done much since “Alice”, but most recently (1996) was on an episode of “Sabrina, the Teenage Witch”. She had guest spots on several other TV shows, including “The Love Boat”, and “Mary Tyler Moore”
Diane played the role of Belle on the TV show, although she also appeared in the movie “Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore”, as the original Flo. She has been very busy since “Alice”, acting in may movies, both regular and made- for-TV movies. She was also married to Bruce Dern at one time, and their daughter Laura Dern, is also an actress, appearing in many movies, including the recent hit “Jurassic Park”. Diane was only on “Alice” for a short time though, about the equivalent of a season, although it was spread out over two seasons. She was brought in to replace Polly Holliday, who had left to do her own show.
Celia played the role of Jolene, replacing Diane Ladd as the 3rd waitress. Celia has done a few movies since “Alice”, two of them that I’ve seen are “Dead Man Walking” and “Lost Angels”, although she has appeared in several movies since then.
*UPDATE* Celia appeared on ER on 2-25-99, as a nurse-practitioner at a clinic in Mississippi that one of the main characters Dr. Benton was helping out for a couple weeks.
Philip played the role of Tommy, Alice’s son, except on the pilot episode (which had Alfred Lutter, the actor who played Tommy on the original movie). Philip pretty much grew up on the show, he was 12 when it started in 1976. Since “Alice”, he hasn’t done too much, although he has done some producing and directing. He is also the older brother of Nancy McKeon, most famous for playing Jo on “Facts of Life”
Charles was a late-comer to “Alice”. He first appeared as Elliot, a policeman who gave Vera a ticket for jay-walking. Vera ended up falling in love with him and they ended up getting married, which is how he became a regular cast member. Charles has been in many movies and TV shows, both before and after “Alice”. Most of the TV shows were guest appearances, but he was in “Seinfeld”, “NYPD Blue”, “Hill Street Blues”, jus to name a few.
I was reading an article about Governor Deval Patricks support on the state’s first-in-the-nation ban of the powerful new painkiller Zohydro. It made me think of Michael Jackson and how he died because of an overdose of his medications. So I decided that today’s music choices would be all about Michael Jackson. Hope you enjoy!

The tow-headed toddler wears a polka-dot dress and a red ribbon that holds a spray of blond hair. Her glamorous mother mimics her hairstyle and serious expression.
The child is Peaches Geldof, who posted the snapshot on Instagram a day before her sudden death. And the woman is Paula Yates, who shared with her daughter a TV career, a weakness for musicians, a history of hard partying and a tragic end.
Thirteen years before Geldof, 25, was found dead under unexplained circumstances, Yates killed herself with a heroin overdose while in the grips of a heartsick depression brought on by the hanging of her lover, INXS frontman Michael Hutchence.
Peaches was emotionally scarred by the death of her mother — who had left her father, rocker and activist Bob Geldof, for the edgy Australian singer — and vowed that she would always be there for her two sons.
“Even if it’s an archaic idea I want Astala to have a mummy and daddy together for ever,” she said of her first-born child in a 2012 interview with the Daily Mail’s Elle magazine.
“It’s a commitment. I want to be a good wife, a good mother, a good person.”
Astala is just 23 months old; his brother, Phaedra is 7 months old.
Peaches was 11 when her mother died. She and her sisters, Pixie and Fifi Trixibelle, had been raised in the English countryside by Yates, who met Bob Geldof when he was the lead singer of the Boomtown Rats.
In 1995, when Peaches was 7, Yates left her husband for Hutchence, and as a bitter divorce and custody battle played out, Yates had a fourth child, Heavenly Haarani Tiger Lily, with her new partner.
A year later, the romance came to a shocking end when Hutchence was found dead in a Sydney hotel room. A devastated Yates insisted that he accidentally killed himself during a sex game, but the coroner’s verdict was suicide.
The entire tragic drama was played out on a very public stage, and Peaches once said she was “very much old enough to see what was going on.”
“I didn’t start grieving for my mother properly until I was maybe 16.”
“I was completely aware of the whole situation, the transition of my mother who was amazing, who wrote books on parenting, who gave us this idyllic childhood in Kent; and who then turned into this heartbroken shell of a woman who was just medicating to get through the day,” she said in 2012.
After Hutchence’s death, Yates struggled with depression. In a 1998 magazine interview, she admitted: “I’m broken, I don’t have any fight.”
Yates did stints in psychiatric and rehab clinics and reportedly tried to kill herself twice. On September 17, 2000, she was found dead in her bed in London. Despite her emotional distress, the coroner found she did not commit suicide but died from an accidental heroin overdose.
Peaches Geldof said she didn’t cry at the funeral.
“I couldn’t express anything because I was just numb to it all. I didn’t start grieving for my mother properly until I was maybe 16,” she told Elle.
Before long, the teenager was following her mother into the public eye with a modeling and TV career. In 2008, she married U.S. musician Max Drummey in Las Vegas, but the couple split the next year.
She was dogged by reports of drug use and in 2010 lost a modeling contract after nude photos surfaced.
Geldof said the rumors were exaggerations.
“I did experiment with drugs, I did get drunk and go to parties, but I was never that wild,” she said two years ago. “I could have been, I could have let myself spiral but all the time I remembered what happened to my mum.”
By then, she was already the mother of one child, and soon to be pregnant with a second. She and Thomas Cohen, lead singer of the London band S.C.U.M., got married in 2012 in the same church where her parents wed.
It was also the place where her mother’s funeral had been held, and Peaches said Yates was never far from her thoughts.
“I feel her presence all the time,” she told Hello! magazine. “But especially today.”
