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.

But Wait There's More: Whatever. I'm just thankful she didn't follow the Lisa Whelchel or Dana Plato route.

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.

PizzaJedi81: FirstNationalBastard: You used to masturbate to her on the Facts of Life (usually when Blair and Jo weren't in the episode that much and you really needed to crank out a batch but felt kinda weird about rubbing one out to Cousin Geri), and you still masturbate to her in her role as

dittybopper: She does the voice of Velma for all the Scooby-Doo cartoons for the last couple decades.

The fact that these two comments are next to each other greatly amuses me.

In my own defense, Scooby-Doo is a great way to introduce kids to the idea that there are no such things as monsters, witches, vampires, ghosts, etc., and that those who claim that there are supernatural phenomenon do so to make money in one way or another.

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

Cletus C.: SithLord: At least she didn't stoop so low so as to be the "guess who I am" mystery celebrity on Survivor.

Blair did very well on that show. It's legitimate survival stuff, for the most part, with real strategy, physical challenges and head games. It's not like Get Me Out of Here, I'm a Celebrity, celebrity fat camp, Surreal Life or whatever.

Go Cochran.

I like Cochran, but I'm pulling for Brenda.

Excuse me while I find somewhere private to do more pulling for Brenda.

If I could find a woman with that much drive and a head on her shoulders like that I would immediately become her life mate or whatever.

gameshowhost: That read like a Jean Teasdale column.

Whatever. I'm just thankful she didn't follow the Lisa Whelchel or Dana Plato route.
