    Good point. It is early yet but if her personality is as sour as we as we have seen so far she may not be able to get a career going even with exposure here.

    Kudos to her for taking such a huge and very public risk. She seems genuine in her desire to pursue a "name of her own". She and Rick have been together since she was 18. If she wanted to use his name to gain for herself, she had lots of time to do it before now.

    And, she's not the only designer there who is already somewhat established. Just because she's married to Ricky Schroeder doesn't mean she shouldn't be given a chance.

A good many of the other contestants are well established in the field, probably more so than she. And how dreadful that she wants a photo of her husband of 20 yearsto keep with her while she does this show.

    Rick Schroder was a child star of a tv show called Silver Spoons. He grew to be quite a good adult actor, most notably in the Lonesome Dove films. I think he's been a regular on one of the Law and Orders or CSI's. We never heard of him getting into trouble as he grew up or as a young adult -- no drugs, no arrests, no outrageous partying -- and he apparently married young and stayed married.
    Actually, he was born in 1970 which makes him only 38 and they got married in 1992 so they've only been married for 16 years, not 20 and therefore their children are not old enough to be "raised".

    Otherwise, I agree with everything else in your post

    ETA: You could totally tell it was Rick Schroder in the picture because it wasn't just the back of his head, you could see the whole right side of his face.

    Re: Andrea - Top Design 2

    I like her and felt bad for her because of the team she was saddled with, the guy who spent all his time trying to prove he was artsy and the girl who couldn't remember to turn water off.

    I do feel she made an error in judgment when she didn't admit that was Ricky. She could have simply said "Yes, my husband is Ricky Schroeder but I want to make it on my own merit so I went on this show." Or something like that. Instead? It will come out eventually and they will have even more reason to hate her (besides what appears to be a polarizing personality).

    I think you have misunderstood. No one is saying she should not be given a chance. We just said it was odd to display a pic of her husband when she said she didn't want anyone to know. Nothing more than that. Not really worthy of lengthy debate, just an observation.

    Actually, I think he was on NYPD Blue for several seasons...

    Yes. He was on NYPD Blue from 98-01 and appeared on Scrubs and Strong Medicine and has been in a whole slew of movies before or since. It was Mark-Paul Gosselaar that was on Law and Order SVU and he was also on NYPD Blue from 01-05. Basically Jimmy Smits picked up where David Caruso left off and Rick took over from Jimmy and Mark-Paul took over from Rick I think some people get Rick and Mark-Paul confused because of the NYPD Blue connection and also because they're both blonde hair, blue eyed heart throbs from the 80's. I know I had a HUGE crush on both of them

    Re: Andrea - Top Design 2

    Rick Schroeder was also on the Lonesome Dove miniseries and did a decent job with that.

    But about his wife . . . I think she did a decent job with her design work, but her attitude sucked. Hopefully she'll be working with some more competant and more confident designers so we can see if she can be a team player when she has more respect for her team. Hope so. Otherwise I'm going to wonder for the rest of my life, why did Ricky Schroeder marry such a %(*&#?

    Thanks for the corrections, stacerace. It was late and I wrote it from memory instead of fact checking as I should have.
