These babies you see before you scarfing down cheesecake are Christy and one of her oldest and dearest friends, Tracy Tofte. You may know her better as Tracy Wells from when she played teenage daughter Heather Owens on “Mr. Belvedere” during the sitcom’s six-year run in the ’80s. Tracy and Christy have known each other since the seventh grade, having grown up together in Woodland Hills, Calif. But Christy had the pleasure of rediscovering her all over again during this Breakfast All Day A La Carte interview. We covered a ton of ground, including what it was like spending her formative years on television; the Michael Jackson Pepsi commercial she danced in; famous co-stars including Ricky Schroder, Kirk Cameron and Alfonso Ribeiro; her on-screen makeout with a pre-Hulk Mark Ruffalo; and making the tough transition from child stardom to adulthood. We also had to discuss the documentary “Leaving Neverland,” since she was so obsessed with Jackson when we were kids. And we trade plenty of embarrassing stories about each other. Here’s evidence we both turned out just fine. We hope you enjoy listening to this conversation as much as we enjoyed recording it.
