Through much of that time, Gold battled anorexia, which she has since conquered. She starred in a 1994 TV movie about the subject, "For The Love Of Nancy." More recently, she appeared on a January 2012 episode of the reality TV show "Celebrity Wife Swap," trading places with singer Carnie Wilson for a week. She also returned to sitcoms with an appearance on the show "Melissa & Joey" in a July 2013 episode titled "Something Happened." Most recently, she starred in the TV movie "My Dad's a Soccer Mom" and appeared as herself on former "Growing Pains" co-star Alan Thicke's reality show "Unusually Thicke."
