Radha Hirsch, Who Is She?

When Radha, then Ursula Astroff, met Doc in the ashram, she was probably eleven or twelve years old.

She recalls being instantly smitten by him. Radha’s mother, Diane, was frequently away at the time, so Radha spent many weekends at Doc’s house.

She was Doc and Betsy’s babysitter. Radha, on the other hand, said on the episode that the relationship became passionate when she was fourteen years old.

Radha’s mother found out about it, thanks to Betsy. She had discovered Radha and Doc making out and made the call right away, according to the episode.

Diane revealed on the episode that she flew her kid out of Virginia and enrolled her in a Catholic school after realising the relationship was unsuitable.

Doc, on the other hand, scooped Radha up and drove away when she was on her way to school.

Radha claimed on the broadcast that Doc had her stay in a motel outside of Washington, DC for almost a month.

By falsifying Radha’s father’s signature on the marriage certificate, the two eventually wedded. Radha was 15 years old at the time, and Doc was around 26.

Despite the fact that Diane was aware of her daughter’s relationship with Doc, she gradually came to terms with it, expecting that Radha would change her mind and that she would be there to support her.

What Happened to Radha Hirsch?

Radha said on the episode that she and Doc were having troubles, which led to the relationship breaking down.

Radha declared that she no longer wanted to be with Doc when she finally saw things for what they were.

Radha chose a day when Doc was not at work and packed all of her stuff when she was 17 years old. After that, she and a pal traveled directly to California.


Radha has since moved on with her life and, from what we can ascertain, now resides in Arizona.

She appears to have kept a low profile since then, and little is known about her activities.
