Long before he did "Seinfeld" or that whole "Dancing With the Stars" thing, John O'Hurley was Stephen Slade on "Santa Barbara." Smooth and confident, he was a delight. Now, O'Hurley is an author, releasing the book "It's Okay to Miss the Bed on the First Jump: And Other Life Lessons I Learned from Dogs" just last month.
“Dogs, after all, have pure hearts, trusting natures, a zest for living, noble characters, and an ability to take things in stride,” O’Hurley explains in the book’s introduction. “They can be counted on, and are pleasant companions. They know what’s important, always. How many humans do you know about which you could say the same?”
The book had a quite-nice sales ranking of 251 on Amazon at BRBTV's weekend check. It's also available on audio CD.
And by the way, did you know that O'Hurley was married to his "SB" costar Eva LaRue (who played Margot Collins, and also popped up on "Dallas" as a character named DeeDee) for a couple years in the 1990s? LaRue went on, of course, to marry another of their "SB" costars, John Callahan (Craig Hunt -- who was part of the Stephen Slade storyline). Talk about a small world -- er, we mean, small set!
