The late Alan Thicke was a TV icon, but to ex-wife Gloria Loring, his stand-out role will always be as a devoted family man.  In an interview People, Loring opened up about her life with Thicke, who died at age 69 on Tuesday after suffering a heart attack while playing hockey.

Huffington Post - over 3 years
Robin Thicke's wife, actress Paula Patton, was okay with Miley Cyrus twerking on the R&B star during the MTV Video Music Awards. Thicke's mother, however, was not. Patton was reportedly fine with Cyrus' act, according to TMZ, despite reports that she was angry after Sunday's risque performance. The actress allegedly knew exactly what was going to go down prior to the show because she had been to the rehearsals. Still, Thicke's mom, Gloria Loring, wasn't too thrilled. Loring sat down with OMG! Yahoo! to watch the awards show and discuss Cyrus' latex-clad dancing with her son. "I just keep thinking of her mother and father watching this. Oh, Lord, have mercy. … I was not expecting her to be putting her butt that close to my son. The problem is now I can never 'unsee' it," she said. "Him? Loved it.
