Biography

After his classic childhood stint on "The Partridge Family" (ABC, 1970-74), Danny Bonaduce became the pen-ultimate cautionary tale of all the damage early stardom can inflict on a child - particularly on a child lacking a stable, loving home to begin with. Although he eventually found a number of ways to capitalize on his gift for gab - including radio shows and the reality TV show "Breaking Bonaduce" (VH1, 2005- ) - it was ultimately the notoriety of being Danny Bonaduce, former child star run amok, that became his greatest and most recognizable asset.
