Have you not realized? The ‘90s are back! And how better to brush up in time than by gazing at the It-girls of the 90s that dominated the decade. We looked back at the beginnings of their career and caught up with where they’re now and certainly these models, actresses and singers remained busy.
Debbe Dunning: 1995 – 2018
When Pamela Anderson quit the Home Improvement ABC sitcom after playing the show “Tool Time,” she left some big shoes to fill. But the new star Debbe Dunning not only owned her own part, but she also helped propel the show to No. 1.
Pamela Anderson: 1994 – 2019
It appeared as if Pamela Anderson was everywhere at the time the clock ticked past midnight on January 1, 1990. After the major decade in her career, in February 1990, Anderson has named Playboy’s playmate magazine and all the potential for acting came in rapid succession.
After success for herself in the 1990s with shows like Home Improvement and, of course, Baywatch most memorable, Anderson has used all this accrued fame for good. Today Anderson is a dedicated animal rights activist who has participated in many PETA campaigns.
Today, years after her tool belt was hanging up on “Tool Time,” Dunning looks and embarks on a new undertaking. Starting in 2017, Dunning has been hosting her own program on DirectTV’s The Cowboy Channel named Debbe Dunning’s Dude Ranch Round-Up, which started airing its third season.
Tiffani Thiessen: 1991 – 2019
One must have tried hard to meet a girl in the 90s who didn’t know Tiffani Thiessen, who was an emerging actress. Beginning with the wildly successful Saved by the Bell high school comedy, Thiessen played Kelly Kapowski — the traditional high school dream girl.
Thiessen graduated from Saved by Bell and Bayside High and this time joined the Valerie Malone drama at high school, Beverly Hills, 90210. Her break-out role, though, came back as a rebirth and Thiessen was seen reprising Kelly Kapowski (now Kapowski-Morris) replacement of Saved by the Bell.
Carmen Electra: 1999 – 2019
Not too many people will say they have Prince, one of the best musicians of a generation, to praise for their career. After moving to Minneapolis to meet with Prince, Electra first infiltrated our radar in 1993 and produced her self-titled debut album.
Electra’s image shifted from the rock scene to glamor modelization through all the walls in the 1990s. Electra went on to become a mainstay of the Horror Movie film genre in the early 2000s. Her last known role was a role on the TV show Alone Together in 2018.
Erika Eleniak: 1994 – 2017
Erika Eleniak, from California, has two juggernauts in the 1990s, Playboy and Baywatch, to thank for her career. In 1989 Eleniak took advantage of her fame as a Playboy playmate to help her secure the role of Shauni McClain on Baywatch the same year.
In 1993, Eleniak hung up her famous red bathing suit and went on to a couple of film roles throughout the 90s. While she has starred in film projects since then, she is most excited to meet Erika with her rumored participation in a Baywatch new documentary revealed in 2019.
Sarah Michelle Gellar: 1998 – 2019
Sarah Michelle Gellar was a role-model to the 90s teen girls around the world (and boys in that regard), kicking a serious asset as Buffy Summers on WB hit drama Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The role of an action hero was still comparatively news for the ‘90s until a female actor was seen, and Gellar knocked it out.
Brandy Norwood: 1999 – 2016
Being from a musical family, it was not unexpected that Brandy Norwood was signed by Atlantic Records in 1993, otherwise known simply as Brandy. A year back, she debuted her self-titled album and shows us easily what she means by selling six million copies worldwide.
Brandy has since started working in the music business and has also assumed a whole variety of playing parts. The songstress has sold over 40 million albums today, won a Grammy Award, an American Music Award and 7 Billboard Music Awards.
