I totally Love Mackenzie Phillips and Valerie Bertinilli And the show of course
22 June 1999 | by Jim-428See all my reviews

The show one day at a time brings back a lot of wonderful memories of when I was a kid. Growing up in a divorced family. So it has a lot of meaning to me. Also I totally adore Laura Mackenzie Phillips. she is one of the most Beautiful actresses I have ever seen. I have a lot of the movies that she has been in. Also Valerie Bertinilli Is so hot I would like to some day meet them both. Watch the show ONE DAY AT A TIME it is cool.
