Pink Whereabouts

Pink Lady & Jeff didn't exactly attract anything in the way of really big guest stars during the show's brief existence. In early 1980, it could be argued that the top stars who came on the show were Larry Hagman since he was famous on Dallas as the delightfully wicked J. R Ewing, and Jerry Lewis, if but for no other reason than he was Jerry Lewis, even though all he was doing at the time was his annual Muscular Dystrophy telethon. As for musical stars, it was a mixed bag with Teddy Pendergrass, Roy Orbison, Donny Osmond along with Blondie, Cheap Trick and Alice Cooper via tape. Go figure. The rest of the lot, like Greg Evigan, Red Buttons, Florence Henderson, Byron Allen and Sid Caesar made for an even odder collection. It made me wonder if the show had run for longer than six weeks, what other flotsam and jetsam would've shown up to hobnob with Mie, Kei and Jeff. Anyway, in case you might be wondering what all those guest stars are still doing after 30 years, here's the 4-1-1 on the bunch!
