Bio / Info
Born in Long Beach, California, Tiffani Thiessen originally used her full name of Tiffani Amber Thiessen when she began modeling and acting in television commercials at a young age. In 1989, she was cast as the good girl Kelly Kapowski on the fan favorite "Saved by the Bell," which ran until 1993 and had a short-lived run on prime time from 1993-1994 as "The College Years." In 1994 she was hired onto the cast of the original "Beverly Hills, 90210" as bad girl Valerie Malone, changing her previous image with a heaping dose of cattiness and a brand new set of breast implants. Over the years, Thiessen has continued her acting mostly on television, with roles on shows like "Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place" where she began a relationship with co-star Richard Ruccolo, whom she was engaged to from 2001-2003. Her movie career never fully got off the ground and now Thiessen is concentrating more on her marriage to actor Brady Smith and their newborn daughter.
