Meredith Baxter Tells All
After her mother died and her youngest children went off to college, Meredith says she rented a room in the garage behind her house to a young lesbian woman named Paula. "I just started to notice where she was all the time," Meredith says. "We started spending time together going on walks or movies and things."
Though her relationship with Paula eventually ended because of their 25-year age difference, Meredith says it changed her life forever. "I felt alive in a way that I had not experienced," she says. "Life was rife with possibilities."
