LYNDA HIRSCH ON SOAPS -- GOSSIP
Catherine Hickland, the 56-year-old actress who played Lindsay on "One Life to Live," will be marrying Todd Fisher on Dec. 22. She will videostream the ceremony so her mom can see the nuptials.
Hickland, who began her soap career as Julie Clegg on "Capitol," knows a thing or four about marriage. Fisher will be her fourth walk down the aisle.
The actress is marrying into a storied family. His mom is Debbie Reynolds; his dad the late Eddie Fisher; his ex-father-in-law, celebrated comic Stan Freberg; sister, Carrie Fisher; ex-brother-in-law, Paul Simon; Liz Taylor his ex-step mom. Kevin Bacon must be in here somewhere.
When Hickland played Julie on "Capitol," she wore her head in beaded dreads and bore an uncanny resemblance to storied beauty Bo Derek. Around that time, she was married to Richard Knowlton. Their wedded bliss lasted a year.
An expert of how to live life after marriage, Hickland penned a guide in 2008: "The 30-Day Heartbreak Cure: Getting Over Him and Back Out There One Month From Today."
"In 30 days, I will have you back out there really living in the world without the anger and blame that can keep you prisoner in a bad relationship years after it's over.
"I've made so many poor choices in my life, but I've learned something from all of them."
David Hasselhoff was her second husband. No. 3 was "All My Children" Emmy winner Michael E. Knight (Tad). They divorced in 2007. Michael added the E to his name, as Hasselhoff's "Knight Ryder" character was Michael Knight.
Of her marriage to Knight, she says: "We were each other's best friends. We will always love each other."
In the book, Hickland describes her 1980s union to Hasselhoff as "a sick kind of love." "It was my decision to marry David, and I take full responsibility for my share of the disaster it became," she says. "I grew up surrounded by chaos and dysfunction, and I'd simply recreated it."
Hickland has always been one determined person. Failing in love with the musical "Les Mis," the actress decided she wanted to play Fantine. She took singing lessons, auditioned and got the part as one of literatures most tragic figures.
She has her own cosmetics company called Cat Cosmetics and has been working with a hypnotic act.
So we are talking beautiful and brainy and almost newly married.
