PARADE: Justine Bateman, 52, of Family Ties (1982-1989) is back in the limelight, and she's using her celebrity to denounce celebrity! Her new book Fame: The Hijacking of Reality is buzzed-about, and comes with the endorsement of her old co-star Michael J. Fox, who says:

Justine Bateman was famous before selfies replaced autographs, and bags of fan mail gave way to Twitter shitstorms. And here’s the good news: she took notes along the way.

Sounds like a compelling read. P.S. She is 100% against doing a Family Ties reboot.
