Tuesday, April 13, 2010 17:33 GMTLOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) The beloved TV mom from The Waltons has landed in the hospital General Hospital, that is.
Michael Learned, aka Olivia Walton, will play a terminally-ill cancer patient who lives life to the fullest this Friday (Apr. 16) on ABCs General Hospital.
Though she loves the character to death literally, Learned likes her own life better.
Her daily routine consists of living life in the now and being grateful for what she has.
That includes her career-making role as Mama Walton, who despite being a housewife, Learned feels was a real role model for the womens liberation movement.
She may have been sweet, but Learned says Olivia sure knew how to discipline her family and keep it all together.
By the way, Learned is still frequently in touch with her Waltons co-stars, who at this point, are more like family.
She has their pictures hanging up in her home alongside photos of her real family.© Copyright 2010 Wireless Flash News Inc
