Four For Friday - Bring Her In

Back in the 90's, this actress was probably A- list. A couple of nice television runs. Not as the star of the show, but as a good solid second billed person. On the show that brought her fame was also the show where she got the reputation as the barely legal (and lets be honest, she was doing it before she was legal too while on the show) actress who loved doing threesomes. She was publicly in the closet, but loved men and women and was up for anything.

It was that up for anything that kept her employed when the vast majority of tween/teen actors now going into their 20's struggled to find employment. In fact, the star of the show that made her famous suffered from that for a couple of decades. Right after her show ended, she had lots of offers. They all came with the wink wink knowledge that she was there to have fun with the star of the project during the shoot or the producer before she landed the job.

This went on for a good decade through another successful television run and then she was done. At that point, she wanted to get her life back and be who she wanted to be with rather than feel like she was having to be with someone for work. She has done a couple things in the decade since, but for the most part has just been living her life, including coming out.

I was going to say Christina Applegate until the end.

sandybrook said...

Maybe too young but Raven Symone?

Moose said...

Jenna Von Oy from Blossom.

Dinger said...

Kristi McNichol

Bloggybutt said...

@sandybrook - Raven Symone is starring on her own hit show again on Disney Channel called Raven's Home and before that she was on The View hosting. So it can't be her.

sandybrook said...

Okay but I don't want it to be Six either take that back Moose! 😢

Not McNichol. I thought of her, too, but googled Family and noted it aired in 1976. Too old.

HeffalumpsAndWoozles said...

Kristi McNichol was in her 30s during the 90s, so doesn't really fit the barely legal label.

Moose said...

Jenna Von Oy had Blossom, then The Parkers. Spotty appearances on TV since.

Came out a while back, and is now engaged to a woman, after having been married and had a couple kids.

Moose said...

Sorry, @Sandybrook - but she fits this blind pretty well.

sandybrook said...

Nah I just went to Wikipedia it appears Six is now engaged to a woman after leaving her husband😬

Flashy Vic said...

I was thinking Mila Kunis (14 when she started That 70s Show - she supposedly lied to the producers about her age. Yeah right) but she's gone on to bigger better things since. Hardly "just a couple of things".

Erin said...

I'm still thinking Nikki Cox. Happily ever after and Las Vegas for the shows.

gauloise said...

I was thinking Leanna Creel who came on in the last season of Saved by the Bell, but she hasnt done anything since.

Sarah Gilbert works steadily.

Really no clue

gauloise said...

Nikki Cox is a good guess, but she was married to Jay Mohr for 12 years. Thats a long time to beard

Unknown said...

Gauloise, wasn't it just said by Dean McDermott that he had a sexual encounter with Jay Mohr when they were younger?

Brayson87 said...

So Six was down with threesomes, didn't see that coming.

Jenna von Oÿ ticks all the boxes. +1 to moose

Aquagirl said...

Who are these people? The only names that I recognize are Christina A. & Mila.

kiki71 said...

The Kristi McNichol guesses are absurd. She was never a kid on shows in the 90s and is considerably older. Jenny makes sense but are they saying she and Raven or Blossom got it on too?

MDAnderson said...

So was Jenna getting it on with Monique on the Parkers??

alan said...

I randomly read this as Von Oy as well, prior to scrolling

Hanniam said...

Van Oy makes more sense seeing as she just got engaged to a woman. My first thought was Tiffani Thiessen tho.

YummyBoogers said...

Is Soiled Moon French-Fry (aka Punky Brewster) married to a man still? She had a few show appearances from the 80s - early 00s.

Brayson87 said...

Wonder if her husband knew she used to be the town tricycle?

Hanniam said...

Don’t know about her relationship but I have some doubts it’s her. I remember her talking about getting a breast reduction as soon as she could because she didn’t like the extra attention her big breasts were getting her.

squirrelmistress said...

mila kunis

Sd Auntie said...

mind blown. Jenna is separated and engaged to some lady. can't imagine her and Countess. loved The Parkers!! what's the dirt on Professor O?

CrazyCatLady said...

Didn’t Kristy McNichol have a nervous breakdown and leave Hollywood for good in the late 80’s/early 90’s? Her and Tatum O’Neal were in that movie Little Foxes which was basically nothing more than a pre-teen sexfest. And based on the stuff presented on this website I’m shocked no one has ever mentioned the possible atrocities.

Miss_proper said...

CrazyCatLady... it was Little Darlings

DarylsBigFan said...

the only person who fits at all is Kristy.
"Family" in the late 70s.
"Empty Nest" in the early 90s.
Erratic behavior at work led to a bipolar diagnosis. I think in 95?
She left "Empty Nest" and quit show business.

Boots said...

Little Darlings was huge for me. I was the perfect age to be attracted to the guys and oddly attracted to the girls and intrigued by the sex stuff! it was like Judy Blume on film. i think this person has to be younger that KM -

Puddy said...

Never heard of Jenna Von Oy, but I'll just assume it's her.

rabbit said...

How can someone be A- and anyone outside the industry has never heard of them, i.e. Jenna Van Oy.

MacKenzie somebody from One Day at a Time.

cmitch said...

neve campbell?

Jennifer said...

@Boots -Same!! Lifelong Matt Dillon fan ever since that movie!

Sd Auntie said...

mackenzie slept with her dad supposedly. she sure did act strange on various talk shows and kind of don't believe her. I'm with mama Michelle on this one

EponymousAnonymoud said...

This makes no sense. 1999 was 20 years ago. If this cohort is just going into their 20s, they would have been0 - at the oldest - in the 90s.

DarylsBigFan said...

'A couple of nice television runs'. I came up with the following who all had multiple TV hits:
Lisa Bonet, Staci Keanan, Kristy McNichol, Val Bertinelli, Cybill Shepherd, Shannen Doherty, Kim Fields, Alyssa Milano, Raven Symone, Courteney Cox, Courtney Thorne-Smith, Katherine Helmond, Kate Jackson, Suzanne Somers, Meredith Baxter Birney, Shelley Fabares.

(There are of course, lots of older actresses who had multiple TV hits. Georgia Engel, Betty White, Mary Tyler Moore, Bea Arthur, Rue McClanahan, etc)

DarylsBigFan said...

@Sd Auntie

Michelle Phillips doesn't fit. She's only been on one TV show for any length of time, which was "knots Landing".
(Tho she did a lot of TV movies)

Sd Auntie said...

oh i know. michelle said mack is a lying sack of shit with a needle in her arm and i have to agree. no this is JVO or KMN. i always thought Mcnichol was gay from day one and could see her and Tatum together. had a huge crush on Jimmy too. lol

edge1124 said...

I agree with Moose....JV Oy...then Mayim Bialek makes come back on Big Bang
