Blossoming starlet

Inspired by Hot Lunch, I have been playing the "What ever happened to" game with Blossoming actress (insert groan for bad punnage here) Mayim Bialik, star of the 1990's sitcom Blossom.

Mayim finished her tenure at Blossom and decided to take a break from acting and pursue her second love.


Of course. What a logical extension.

After being accepted by both Harvard and Yale, she headed off to UCLA so she could remain closer to her parents. She has completed her doctorate in Neuroscience and lives with her husband, child, bird and cat in LA. She has also adopted a whale, a wolf and a manatee.

WHOA! (to quote good old Joey)

During the completion of her doctorate, she decided that she missed the footlights and decided to return to acting. Hence her appearance in Fat Actress. She also made a movie titled Kalamazoo...

Three women return home for their ten year high school reunion to discover that a time capsule made on graduation night, predicting where everyone would be in ten years' time, is due to be opened and read aloud at the impending event. Horrified at the thought of their unfulfilled goals being revealed, they embark on a 'search and destroy' mission to get their hands on the capsule and chaos ensues! Meanwhile, the spirits of their three deceased grandmothers come down to help guide the gals through this transitional point in their lives.
The trailer is truly something to behold. I tried to link it, but my computer kept vomiting. Go and look for yourselves. You will not be disappointed.

She appeared in a documentary titled "Child Star Confidential" which follows a whole bunch of child stars and "where they are now".

Including Candace Cameron Bure from Full House.
She grows up well. Apparently being married to a hockey star does wonders for you!

What a BRILLIANT way for me to while away my Tuesday morning...thanks Hot Lunch!
