[National Enquirer] Actress Delta Burke blasted a TV star who invited the future Designing Woman star to his trailer while she filmed a guest spot.
The next thing I know is that he’s got this whole affair planned… He said I was this week’s meat. He was very, very persistent.
And after she brushed him off, Delta said,
I was very much snubbed by the other crew members – because they wanted to keep the star happy!

[Optional] Pick your favorite actor. If he invited you to his trailer and called you “this week’s meat,” you would _____ .
This is the Love Boat
I have no idea what actor on that show would behave this way
Fred Grandy was seen hitting on the “Atmosphere ” which are attractive models and aspiring actresses used for the scenes and the sets but I don’t think he would use term meat either. I still would go for Stacy Keach who has some of the Bob Character from Judge Roy Bean in this.
Stacy Keach A.K.A> Mike Hammer
He was notorious at the time for his disrespect of women and he was also a cokehead. It destroyed his career.
I’m guessing Gene Rayburn. Seemed like a horndog.
Off-topic: I can’t get over how much Kate Middleton looks like a young Delta Burke!
She does! I never noticed that before. Obviously far less voluptuous, but the resemblance is there.
“This week’s meat” makes it sound like a show that revolved a different guest star every week.
She did several shows like that, but since I don’t think anyone guessed it yet, I’ll say
Ricardo Montalban/ Fantasy Island
Probably not anyone on Love Boat, since she did multiple episodes. I don’t think she’d be asked back in this situation.

I would reply back ( if i was single and wanted it) yeah sure and you will be my piece of sausage for today! If I did mot want tho thats a whole other story…
Mr Jaws says
Richard Dawson, 1980’s Family Feud MC.
He was always giving wet kisses (maybe tongue too) on live tv– and no one said boo–even the husbands let that man kiss their wives. Gross! Behind closed doors, Dawson looks like he would call women “meat”.
Optional: Brad Pitt as Tristan from Legends From the Fall. If he called me meat I would swoon at first–and say then “what?…. Hell no!”.
Noooooooooo, PLEASE don’t let it be Shatner!!!
Lee Majors. The show was The Fall Guy.
William Shatner TJ Hooker
Stacy Keach most likely. Or William Shatner.
Wait, is this a cannibal thing?
William Shatner T.J. Hooker Always came off as a sleaze with his wig and girdle…
Star: Pierce Brosnan
Clue: affair (Brosnan was in Thomas Crowne Affair)
William Shatner on TK Hooker
William Shatner – TJ Hooker
Tony Danza – Who’s the Boss
James Brolin – Hotel
She did a few guest shots before Designing Women…could have been Stacy Keach, William Shatner, or even Pierce Brosnan.
The only one I can see using the “this week’s meat” line would be Keach though.
Pierce Brosnan would be my last guess. He was so in love with his first wife, Cassandra Harris, and was pretty shook up by her death. I think he’s equally smitten with his current wife too. The New York Post just had a article about them a week or so ago.
Going with William shatter on Boston legal. ??♀️
William Shatner on TJ Hooker?
If my favorite actor treated me like that, I would definitely never watch anything with him again. Anything else I’d want to do would be against the law.
Lee Majors? “The Fall Guy”
She guest starred before “Designing Women” aired
I Am PunkA says
James Brolin, tv séries Hotel
No idea, so just going to make a random guess based on what shows she made one guest appearance on and go with Dick Van Dyke in Diagnosis: Murder.
Diagnosis Murder was from 1996 this pig was pre Designing Women 1987 or so (which I loved). I’m going with Simon & Simon she did one guest spot and just before DW. She also met her husband (Gerald McRaney) on set so thinking he may have protected her in some way which added to their friendship/relationship.
Scratch mine, I missed TV Star, duh! I’m changing to Tony Danza he’s always given me a weird vibe.
Optional: If anyone called me a piece of meat that would be the end of that relationship, I would do my job professionally and keep on a truckin.
Who’s the Boss
The Fall Guy
The New Mike Hammer
My best guess is William shatner in Boston legal or t.j. Hooker
Guessing it wasn’t Sherman Helmsley or Charles Nelson Reilly. :p
Read it wrong, it wasn’t guest stars on Designing Women.
I’m guessing it was William Shatner or Larry Hagman.
I’ll take a stab: William Shatner – TJ Hooker
Actor: Gavin MacLeod
Show: The Love Boat. Clue: “crew”
Optional: I cannot imagine Robert Duvall ever behaving in such an inappropriate fashion.
