Who's The Boss




Who's The Boss Cast


Series Description
    


Who's The Boss was a 30 minute family comedy series on ABC about an ex major-leager working as a housekeeper for a woman executive. They both had children and they all lived together in the lady executive's home. While there were occasional conflicts between the "Jock" and the lady that rules the roost, they all eventually became one big happy household. There was also a lot of potential romance between the two during Who's The Boss which was fun to watch but 'mostly' stayed plutonic. It was also fun watching the kids grow up over the eight-year run!

Who's The Boss Trivia

The license plate on Sam's first car was a personalized plate. It read, "Sam's Car".

The Who's the Boss TV show had a "spinoff" series titled, "Living Dolls". It was only a marginal spinoff as the main characters for Living Dolls were not regular Cast on Who's the Boss. They did appear, however, in their series' rolls in episode #125 of this series which was (not surprisingly) titled, "Living Dolls"!

Both Angela and Tony were single parents on the series. Angela was divorced and Tony was widowed.

Angela got fired from the Wallace and McQuade agency at the beginning of the third season and opened her own agency. Her mother came to work for her adding a new area for conflict to the program (Man works for Woman AND Mother works for Daughter). Angela also got a boyfriend that season but the storylines tended to make you feel that she should really be with Tony.

The characters played by Katherine Helmond on "Who's The Boss?", "Soap", and "Everybody Loves Raymond" all lived in Connecticut!

Several things happened in the last season of Who's The Boss. Sam got married. Angela and Tony nearly tied the knot several times. Tony got a job in Iowa as a college baseball coach and Angela went with him. She missed her job too much and returned to Connecticut. After failing to find an acceptable housekeeper, Angela found Tony at her door to apply for the job. He had decided that giving their relationship another try was more important than his job.

Judith Light met her husband, "Robert Desiderio" when they were both appearing on the daytime drama, "One Life to Live". Judith won two Emmys, two Soapy Awards and a Soap Opera Hall of Fame Award for her work on that TV show! In fact, one of her performances received so much acclaim that it is used to teach in acting schools and TV Guide Magazine named it as, "100 Most Memorable Moments on Television"!

Alyssa Milano's background made her perfect for her role on the Who's The Boss TV show. Her heritage was Italian in real life and she was born in Brooklyn and grew up on Staten Island. Alyssa got her start at the age of seven when her babysitter tried out for a role for the first national tour of the play, "Annie". Her babysitter didn't get a part but Alyssa was noticed and she did! After that, she did television commercials and off-Broadway plays until her big break on, "Who's The Boss (1984)" at age 10. She has had some controversy in her career since then. She did a "Candies Perfume" commercial in revealing lingerie that some networks refused to air. The print versions of those commercials included pictures of a man applying perfume to her cleavage and a medicine cabinet full of perfume and condoms. "Teen People" and "Seventeen" Magazines refused to print those. She also posed nude in an issue of "Bikini Magazine". She became possibly the first most predominant woman whos nude photos were posted all over the internet. She greatly reduced her exposure there however when she successfully sued a web designer for $230,000! In addition to her acting skills, Alyssa also plays the flute and the piano. A picture of her was used as a model to create "Ariel" in the 1989 Disney film, "The Little Mermaid".

Tony Danza's roles on "Taxi (1978)" and "Who's The Boss (1984)" might lead you to believe that he's no more than a "not too bright" jock but in real life he has a bachelor's degree in history education (and besides ... his role on "Family Law (1999)" finally shows off his mental side). That's not to say that he didn't have athletic abilities too. He earned his degree on a wrestling scholarship. He also boxed professionally before acting and even for the first few seasons on "Taxi (1978)"! In fact, his acting career got its start when he met a producer at a boxing gymnasium in New York.

Danny Pintauro grew up (of course) and earned a degree from Stanford University. He is also an Eagle Scout. In a 1997 interview with the National Enquirer, he stated that he is gay. He said, "It turned into a positive thing. I had nothing to hide. I was not at all secretive about it. Everyone in my life knew." He has said that he often watches reruns of Who's The Boss because, to him, it's like looking through an old yearbook.


Who's the Boss Theme Song

Title: Brand New Life

By: Larry Carlton, Robert Craft, Martin Cohan and Blake Hunter

There's a time for love and a time for living.
You take a chance and face the wind.
An open road and a road that's hidden.
A brand new life around the bend.

There were times when I lost a dream or two.
Found the trail, and at the end was you.
There's a path you take and a path untaken.
The choice is up to you my friend.

Nights are long but you're on your way,
To a brand new life,
Brand new life,
Brand new life around the bend.
