Actress Holly Robinson Peete: I Wish John Travolta Had Spoken Out Sooner
"Were there times I said to myself, Ooh, if somebody that A-list comes out, what could he do for the movement? Yeah, I wished that," the former 21 Jump Street star tells Life & Style.
Still, she says, "I don't blame the Travoltas for not talking about it. I would never tell someone what to say about their kid."
Along with her husband, former NFL star Rodney Peete, Holly founded the HollyRod Foundation, which raises money for families dealing with autism and similar conditions. She says it was a family decision for the Peetes to go public with Rod Jr.'s condition, and she hopes John can find solace in doing the same.
"The fact that posthumously he had to say that on the stand, I wasn't glad about it," she says. "But I was relieved he was able to have closure."
