Actress Kristy McNichol, who was big in the '80s and '90s courtesy of TV sitcoms like Empty Nest, has come out.
PEOPLE reports that McNichol, 49, has lived with her partner Martie Allen, also 49, for the past two decades. She decided to make a statement about her sexuality as she is "approaching 50" and wants to "be open about who I am."
She "is very sad about kids being bullied," her publicist Jeff Ballard told the weekly. "She hopes that coming out can help kids who need support. She would like to help others who feel different."
That is brave of her!
