Former “Little House on the Prairie” star Melissa Gilbert appeared on “Watch What Happens Live”, where she admitted she’d like to punch a 90s actress in the nose.
Gilbert also revealed she dated Tom Cruise and discusses her mean co-star on “Little House on the Prairie”.
Melissa chatted with the show’s host, Andy Cohen, and revealed she’d punch former “90210” star Shannen Doherty if she saw her.
Gilbert accused the former “Charmed” actress of sleeping with her ex-husband.
Cohen asked the actress what she’d say if she ran into Shannen on the street.
The 49-year-old replied, “I wouldn’t say anything, I’d just punch her in the nose.”
Melissa previously wrote in her 2010 book “Prairie Tales” that Shannen Doherty had a one-night stand with her first husband Bo Brinkman in the early 90s.
Melissa and Bo, a cousin of actors Randy Quaid and Dennis Quaid, divorced in 1994 after six years of marriage.
Gilbert also revealed during the interview that she dated Tom Cruise when he was still a struggling teenage actor.
She said, “Actually, when I dated him he was Tom Mapother still. It was when he first moved to Los Angeles and I think I was…16? 17?”
Andy was curious about Cruise, who singer Cher claimed was one of the best lovers she’d ever had.
But Melissa stated, “I did not have sex with him. We made out, but honestly, there was no sex, He was a good kisser, but you know, he was like a struggling, starving actor and I was working. I actually bought him his first set of dishes.”
Melissa Gilbert also dished on her former co-star Melissa Sue Anderson, who played her blind older sister Mary Ingalls on the show.
A fan asked about their relationship and Melissa said of Melissa Sue, “[Anderson was] “hateful, horrid, mean, terrible, mean, difficult. She hated me. She knocked me off the wagon when I was nine.”
