If you don’t know who Kelly Kapowski is…I really don’t know how to help you with that. But if you do know her…it’s time to celebrate!
Okay, okay it’s not really Kelly Kapowski’s birthday…but it is Tiffani-Amber Thiessen’s 38th birthday! Tiffani is best known for her TV roles on “Saved By the Bell” and “Beverly Hill, 90210.”
In 1974, the birthday girl was born in Long Beach, California and grew up to be an actual beauty queen.
In 1987, Tiffani was crowned Miss Junior America and won the “Great Model Search” sponsored by Teen magazine. Winning this contest landed Tiffani on the cover of the mag and helped her obtain the biggest role of her life…Kelly Kapowski.
When Tiffani was 15 she auditioned for “Saved By the Bell” and won the role! Let me tell you, I would not be the woman I am today without Kelly Kapowski!
When “Saved By the Bell” sadly ended after those awkward college years, Aaron Spelling scooped Tiffani up and dropped her into the 90210 zip code. Tiffani played Valarie Malone who is described as “unwholesome and emotionally troubled.” The best kind of character.
After her time in “Beverly Hill, 90210” was up, Tiffani starred in a boatload of made for TV movies and now she is currently starring on USA’s “White Collar” with the beautiful Matt Bomer.
Let’s get personal…back in the day Tiffani dated Brian Austin Green aka Mr. Megan Fox and was engaged to Richard Ruccolo…that guy from “Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place.” It didn’t work out with Richard…this gave me hope that Mark Paul Gosselaar was still an option.
Much to my dismay, Tiffani married Brady Smith in 2005. They also have a baby together named Harper.
On that note…let’s relive the good old days…and remember there is no hope with dope!
Tiffani – Happy Birthday! Thanks to you, I’m still looking for my Zack Morris.
