This. Pick on her all you want, but she seems to be healthy, happy, well-adjusted, and working. More than you can say for a lot ex child stars. For every Neil Patrick Harris, Jodie Foster and Kurt Russell, there are a dozen Gary Colemans, Corey Feldmans, Lindsey Lohans, Brian Bonsalls, Emmanuel Lewises, Macaulay Culkins, Edward Furlongs, Haley Joel Osments, And Amanda Byneses who are either addicts, train wrecks, or dead...Literally, or career-wise.

So good on her.

Also, Velma is smart, well-endowed, and wears short skirts.  What's not to like?

Hey, good for her.  I always liked the character of Natalie.  She seemed the most real out of all of them, and it makes sense why.  She was basically being herself, and it shows.  She obviously isn't ashamed of her body image which is a good thing for any woman, imo.

Am I the only one who read that in the "voice" of her Facts of Life character?  I tried to stop myself or switch to a "generic narrator," but the best I could do was Stewie Griffin, which didn't make things any better.

Agreed. I was sad only to find a bunch of words that were far to numerous to read. I'm assuming since she wrote it she's not dead yet so she's doing better than the ones from Different Strokes.

Outside of their careers sputtering out, I'm not sure why Emmanuel Lewis and Haley Joel Osment are in that list.  AFAIK, both of them have kept their noses relatively clean.  Osment DUI'ed once six years ago, but that's about it and that's relatively minor compared to that list.  I'd swap out Osment for Brad Renfro.

Yep, right now I could probably be lying on the beach of my very own private island I bought with all the money VH1 offered me to play (and hopefully make a fool of) myself, by wandering around on some other island with a motley crew of celebrities: cohabitating, losing weight, or getting sober.

xtalman: cygnusx13: As the father of a 7 year old Scooby Doo junkie, I didn't need this article to tell me that she's been consistently employed. Hell, I must pay most of her salary.

Yea, we paid a good chunk of it a few years ago.  Kids still like Scooby but we don't need the DVD's anymore.


Wish I met you 2 years ago...coulda arranged something mutually beneficial.

/my wife got stuck taking him to the Scooby Doo musical coming to town this month. I drew the line there.
