Since my “dalaGAY” (gay son), IC, and Aiza Seguerra were child stars during the same era some “Coochie-coochie-coos” ago, I’ve always had a soft spot for Aiza.

When the A&E network suspended “Duck Dynasty” patriarch Phil Robertson for disparaging gay people, it may have followed a time-honored TV tradition of quickly silencing a star who, for better or worse, speaks his mind.
