Melissa Gilbert engaged to Timothy Busfield

Melissa Gilbert, 48, who rose to fame as a child star in the TV series Little House on the Prairie, is engaged to thirtysomething star Timothy Busfield, 55. Melissa’s 16-year marriage to second husband, Bruce Boxleitner, ended in March 2011, and by November of that year, she was in a relationship with a younger car salesman. The relationship ended in November 2012, when he allegedly dumped her because he realized she wasn’t as rich as he thought. Not even two months later, she and Busfield announced their engagement. It will be the third marriage for both. However, Busfield  has an interesting past that Melissa might want to consider. In 1994, he was accused of sexual harassment by a 17-year-old female extra. She said he’d invited her to his trailer, gave her alcohol and then tried to have sex with her. In response, the production company had her fired, but two other females then came forward to say he’d been inappropriate with them as well. Last summer Busfield was accused of sexual battery, when a woman he was on a date with said he groped her in the breast and genital areas. Luckily for Busfield, the case was dropped due to lack of evidence.

    I read her bio. She’s a nasty little witch. Years later she’s still saying hateful things about the girl who played her sister, Mary on the show. Now it appears she’s stupid too. Two months and they’re engaged? She must be desperate. I’m guessing she doesn’t know he’s a perv, because you don’t know someone in two months.
