Today’s blog comes from a daily writing prompt. While this topic has often come up in conversations with friends over the years, I’m surprised I’ve never written about it. The prompt: “Did you have a Celebrity Crush growing up?” If I am being honest, I had a few. Sometimes, the only reason I watched a specific TV show was because of the celebrity crush.
I am guessing that many of these gals made the lists of many young men. I guess you’d call many of them sex symbols. Here is my list:
Lynda Carter – Wonder Woman
Marilu Henner – Taxi
Jaclyn Smith – Charlie’s Angels
Catherine Bach – The Dukes of Hazzard
Nancy McKeon – Facts of Life
Erin Gray – Buck Rogers in the 25th Century
Christina Applegate – Married With Children
Olivia Newton John – Grease
Marisa Tomei – My Cousin Vinny
Carrie Fisher – Star Wars
Tiffani Thiessen – Saved By The Bell
Paula Abdul – MTV
I’m probably forgetting a few ….
How about you? Who were your Celebrity Crushes?
