Melissa Gilbert has come a long way since her days as a child star when she played Laura Ingalls Wilder on “Little House on the Prairie.” She started her career when she was nine years old, and she loved being on the show. Melissa later became famous in a number of TV movies, led the Screen Actors Guild, danced on “Dancing with the Stars,” and even got involved in politics.
She just moved to the Catskills in New York to live a quieter life. She is 59 years old. Melissa took on the challenge of fixing up an empty house and turning it into a peaceful place to relax.
Her journey, though, went beyond homes. Like a lot of people in the entertainment business, Melissa felt like she had to get plastic surgery to fight aging. She tried Botox, fillers, and breast implants but eventually found that these changes made her feel disconnected from herself.
