Tracey Gold set the record straight on her alleged feud with T.V. brother Kirk Cameron over their differing views on gay marriage on “Oprah: Where Are They Now?.”
Cameron, a devout Christian conservative, told Piers Morgan back in 2012 that homosexuality is “unnatural” and “destructive.” His comments caused many fellow actors in Hollywood to respond to his opinions, including Gold.
“I am a strong supporter of the #LGBT Community, and I believe in equal rights for all. #NOH8 #LOVE,” Gold tweeted.
The tweet led some to believe Cameron and Gold, who starred together in the ’80s sitcom “Growing Pains,” were feuding over their views on gay marriage. Gold says that was not the case.
“I was asked, on Twitter. I was just bombarded with, ’What do you think, what do you think, what do you think?’” Gold says. “I felt like my silence in that moment was not beneficial. I just wanted to say what I felt and what my own belief was, which was love and marriage for all.”
Gold says that she reached out to Cameron privately and the two agreed to disagree like “family.”
“He’s like, ’I’m not mad at you at all. I totally get it. I gave my opinion, you gave yours. We’re good.’ All right. Great,” Gold says. “It doesn’t mean that I hate him or we’re in a fight or a feud.”
