I might be tempted to feel kind of sad or depressed about the teen queen hotties from my youth starting to enter their 40s. I keep positive only by the virtue of their lasting appeal. Take, for example, the subject of today's flashback opportunity, Tiffani Thiessen, who just celebrated her big 4-0 yesterday. Ain't nothing decrepit about her. Quite the contrary.
Like many of these former teenage hotties, I find myself undecided on which iteration of Tiffani I'm more enthusiastic for. Older Tiffani's got some sexy curves on her. Though I have equal love for the olden days, when she was known as Tiffani-Amber Thiessen, in conformity with the middle name emphasis required for all child actors. Beloved as I was of young Tiffani, televised opportunities to lust after her didn't come easily for me. I loathed Saved By The Bell and had few good things to say about 90210 as well. My excuse to watch were friends and their insistence on tuning into those shows and their equal helpings of corny shtick and melodramatic nonsense. Even if the high school exploits of Brandon, Dylan, Slater and Zack repelled me, the promise of a Tiffani fix was more than enough reason to endure the rest.
I can't think of too many hotties who have had such a wonderful mix of sweetness and sex appeal like Tiffani. Just look at her down there. How could you not love that face? So sweet. There was always a sexier side of her too. Despite her family friendly media platform, they still figured out ways to make sure she was making with the sexy as often as they could. Of course, things got really interesting later on in the 90s when she got her implants, cut her hair and went tear-assing through the spank mags, showing off as much as she could without technically doing a Playboy pictorial. Those were particularly good times for all us Tiffani fans.
Nowadays, Tiffani has settled down into married life, had a kid and maintains her celebrity status with her white collar crime investigation show. It might not be as exciting as topless pictorials, but it's probably the appropriate approach for someone at her stage of life. She can still bring the hotness when she wants to, as that Me In My Place spread above proves. And she's still got that apple-cheeked face, which is one of my favorite of her many terrific features. Situations may change, but the best parts of Tiffani remain intact.
