'The Talk' Takes a Look at the Many Hairstyles of Joey Lawrence (VIDEO)

Joey Lawrence on 'The Talk'Joey Lawrence, currently of 'Melissa & Joey,' has grown up on TV, acting and singing since he was five-years-old. That's a lot of time to make some bad fashion choices, and a lot of footage to enter into evidence. Which is exactly what happened Wednesday on 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS), when the ladies showed Lawrence a retrospective of his hairstyles over the years.

It started with the "bowl cut" look from 'Gimme a Break.' "I actually ran into Dorothy Hamill and I told her that I loved it," said Lawrence. "She gave me the bowl, and I used it, and my mom cut my hair." There was also the curly semi-mullet from 'Blossom' and his shaven head from 'Dancing With the Stars,' which Lawrence said came from his being a fan of Richard Marx and Mr. Clean, respectively.

'The Talk' producers then slipped in a Photoshopped picture of Lawrence with Sharon Osbourne's hair. Lawrence said he told his guy to do something different that day. "I'm the Lady Gaga of haircuts," he said. We can't wait to see his "meat head."

It doesn't matter if the lady never wears the same thing twice or never changes clothes -- we've got both represented here -- it's the style that adds substance.

New Shows on DVD for October 12, 2010

by Elizabeth Chan, posted Oct 12th 2010 11:00AM
Some classic TV shows are remembered by their characters' signature styles. Before 'Friends' and "the Rachel," there was 'Blossom' and her hats. A recent episode of 'Glee' made reference to that show, which most likely went above the heads of most 'Glee' fans. However, some of you out there might also remember Joey Lawrence's catchphrase, "Whoa!"

Now all those great 'Blossom' moments are being packaged in a new DVD today, hitting stores which includes the original pilot of 'Blossom.'

Check out the full list of DVD's coming out today after the jump!

Melissa Joan Hart Does a Sorority Girl Rap on 'Melissa & Joey' (VIDEO)

Melissa Joan Hart Does a Sorority Girl Rap on 'Melissa & Joey'The series 'Melissa & Joey' (Tue., 8PM ET on ABC Family) is a conscious flashback to the way comedy shows used to be: multiple cameras, filmed in front of a live studio audience, with a loud laugh track. And to complete the "old-timey" feel, the sitcom features Melissa Joan Hart and Joey Lawrence -- stars of '90s shows like 'Sabrina, the Teenage Witch' and 'Blossom' -- as the non-cleverly named title couple.

The new episode centers around Joey's life as a male nanny, or "Manny." Joey is worried that his somewhat humiliating job is cramping his dating style. Enter Liz: Melissa's sexy former sorority sister. Things are suddenly starting to look up for Joey.

'Melissa & Joey' - Television As a Metaphor For a Dude's Private Parts (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted Aug 17th 2010 11:50PM
'Melissa & Joey' - Television As a Metaphor for a Dude's Private PartsWe get to have a slightly "retro" TV experience on 'Melissa & Joey' (Tue., 8PM ET on ABC Family). The new sitcom features Melissa Joan Hart and Joey Lawrence; stars of such vintage '90s shows as 'Blossom' and 'Sabrina, the Teenage Witch.' But now, the pair are all grown up, and must cope with more adult problems.

On the new episode, Joey must deal with the aftereffects of his ruined marriage. His ex-wife Tiffany has pretty much taken everything -- everything. Joey is basically left with the contents of a small cardboard box. Among the items that his wife took with her is Joey's 52-inch TV. Now, Joey has almost nothing left.

Melissa points out that Joey is letting Tiffany stomp all over him. And she uses his loss of "inches" -- from a 52-inch television to zero inches -- as a metaphor for Joey's, um, "manhood." Basically, she's saying that Joey has shrunken down to nothing. Will Joey be able to get his lost "inches" back?*

(*You guys get what we're talking about here, right?)

Blossom Has a 'Big Bang Theory' on Love

by Kim Potts, posted Mar 29th 2010 9:25AM
At last, Sheldon Cooper is getting a girlfriend, and she's a very familiar face to TV fans.

'Blossom' star Mayim Bialik has signed on for a recurring role on CBS' 'The Big Bang Theory,' in which she'll play a potential love interest for the socially backward, but adorkable Sheldon (Emmy nominee Jim Parsons).

Bialik's character, Victoria, will be introduced in the May 24 finale of 'Big Bang.' Victoria is described as the female equivalent of nerdy Sheldon, and the potential love match is made when the two meet on eHarmony.

'Blossom' Cast: Where Are They Now?

Blossom where are they now
ABC Family announced recently that 'Blossom' alum Joey Lawrence and 'Sabrina the Teenage Witch' star Melissa Joan Hart will star in an upcoming sitcom, 'Melissa & Joey,' about a politician (Hart) who hires a manny (Lawrence) to take care of her live-in niece and nephew.

The duo already co-starred in a very successful made-for-TV ABC Family movie, 'My Fake Fiance,' last year, and both are also past 'Dancing With the Stars' contenders, but we were wondering ... what else has former teen pin-up Lawrence and the rest of his 'Blossom' buddies been up to since their NBC sitcom left the airwaves in 1995?

Mayim Bialik talks about her faith and her return to acting

I suppose if you want to be cynical, you could say that Mayim Bialik is in the midst of a comeback, with several recent television roles, including guest stints on Bones, Secret Life of the American Teenager, and now, Saving Grace. However, it's not as though the erstwhile star of Blossom has spent the last fifteen years sitting around waiting for the phone to ring. After the series' end, she attended UCLA, got married, had two children, and even earned her PhD last year.

Ms. (er, Dr.) Bialik has indeed been busy, but she is now looking to make her way back into Hollywood. She's guest-starring on Saving Grace tonight as Esther, a Hasidic Jewish mother of seven, whose own mother is found murdered in a field full of dead cows. I spoke with Mayim about Saving Grace, the lasting legacy of Blossom, and how she hopes people see her today.

Here's that What Not To Wear/Blossom crossover you never asked for

by Annie Wu, posted May 21st 2009 2:26PM
What Not To WearOkay, so it's not a legit crossover, but it's more fun if you think of it that way. Blossom star Mayim Bialik is getting a makeover on the season premiere of TLC's What Not To Wear (new episodes return May 29th). Post-sitcom-fame motherhood has left her a little frumpy and hiding behind shapeless hair, and her friends and family want her to do something about it. I'm sure whatever catty nonsense the hosts subject her to won't be as embarrassing as that time I was watching an episode and suddenly realized I was wearing the same thing as Clinton Kelly.

Blossom's Boys - Joey vs. Tony - VIDEO

blossom mayim bialik nbc sitcom 90'sShould Blossom be considered classic sitcom? Mmmprobably not. But to many a 20-something, the NBC sitcom was an unlikely success that, through a blend of irreverence and quirkiness, lasted five seasons and proved culturally resonant in its approach to covering "realistic topics" relevant to teenagers of the nineties.

Come celebrate with the Powerpuff Girls on their tenth birthday - VIDEO

by Richard Keller, posted Jan 8th 2009 9:03AM
Created from sugar, spice, and Element X, the Powerpuff Girls return to Cartoon Network in January.It's been 10 years since Cartoon Network introduced us to the most adorable super-heroines this world has ever seen? Apparently yes, since the network is celebrating the anniversary of The Powerpuff Girls in a few weeks. Course, this makes me feel older than I am and poses the question of who sped up time over the last few years. Whoever you are, I have extended a certain digit in your direction.

Back to the original premise of this post. Cartoon Network will be celebrating the tenth birthdays of Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup (who were born on November 18th, 1998) with a brandy-new special titled The Powerpuff Girls Rule!!! on January 19th at 8 pm. This will be the first new episode of the series since its original run ended on CN and it was moved to the ethereal Boomerang in 2008. Prior to this premiere, the network will run a 14-hour marathon featuring the favorite episodes of show creator Craig McCraken.

E! True Hollywood Story going, going, gone?

by Julia Ward, posted Nov 3rd 2006 10:01AM
True Hollywood StoryMediaBistro is reporting that E! True Hollywood Story may be going the way of a drug-addled former child star -- down the slow slide into oblivion.

E! is cutting 15 staff jobs and paring down the program -- having ordered only 21 episodes, less than half the typical order, for the year. I, of course, didn't realize that there were more than 50 original episodes of the show ordered every year. For some reason, I only catch the Blossom one.

While no one likes to see anyone lose their job, I'm sure E! will find a new way to edit together clips of pop culture detritus for our consumption.

Joey Lawrence is still saying "whoa"

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 20th 2006 11:59AM

Joseph LawrenceSo you were an adorable kid on a couple of hit TV shows (Gimme A Break and Blossom), an underrated show (Brotherly Love) and endless other shows and TV movies. You want to get away from your kid actor days because you're an adult, so you drop the whole "Joey" thing and start going by the name "Joseph." You want to graduate to meatier roles, more mature roles.

So why do you agree to star in an Ice Breakers commercial with the Duff sisters and say your famous "whoa!" line? I can understand why some TV stars might want to cash in on an old catch phrase - how many times have we had to sit through Gary Coleman saying "whatchoo talkin 'bout Wills? when he got older? - but why you, Joey? (Sorry, Joseph). You're a talented guy who could probably do a lot of things, and while I'm all for self-deprecation and even some nostalgia, I think you're too young to be looking backward like that. So stop saying "whoa" and grab a meaty character role or co-star in a nice ensemble drama.
