Soleil Moon Frye Gives Women Inspiration with New Book, Blog on 'Today' (VIDEO)

Ann Curry and Soleil Moon Frye on 'Today'Soleil Moon Frye was famous at age seven for playing the proverbial precocious kid on 'Punky Brewster.' Now 35, she's married with kids of her own, has her own clothing line at Target, and is also a parenting and social media guru. Her memoir, 'Happy Chaos,' covers her life from child star to mom. Frye spoke with Ann Curry Tuesday on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC) and tried to give people, especially mothers, a bit of inspiration.

The name of the book comes from Frye's attitude toward her household. "I don't know about you and your house, but it's insanity, you know what I mean?" she said. "Like, it's crazy at all hours, and I think we need to give ourselves a little freedom and cut ourselves a little slack and just do the best we can do."

Punky Brewster where are they nowIt ran for just four seasons (1984-88), but "Punky power" had a lasting impact on pop culture, as 'Punky Brewster' remains a beloved, family-friendly series, with star Soleil Moon Frye named as one of the '100 Greatest Kid Stars' in a VH1 special.

Seven retro network promos to leave you confused, delighted - VIDEOS

abcWhile ABC, NBC, and CBS have historically remained in a cutthroat battle for viewers, each network has shared one common trait: come the season of network promotional campaigns, all actors must be prepared to look absolutely ridiculous.

After the jump ... Remember this pop cultural gem (video below) that gained traction on the Net not too long ago? The sheer oddity of the clip alone forces us to ask ourselves several questions: do these people all live together? Why is Marla Gibbs dressed like an astronaut? Does Bea Arthur do everybody's shoppingl? CAN'T NELL CARTER JUST SIT DOWN AND REST HER FEET FOR A SECOND? (Seriously, give her a break!)

Eight signs from television that you are getting old - VIDEOS

This young Starship Captain is now 77-years-oldLet's face it, we get old. Some of us live a long and glorious life, dying happily in our sleep next to the 26-year-old Penthouse Pet of the Month who is just with our wrinkled old selves because we have money. Others live to the ripe old age of 30 and have a wonderful Lastday ceremony. It really doesn't matter...we get old one way or another.

Most of us try not to admit we are getting old. We use dyes, we have surgeries to move things around, and we pump ourselves with poison so our faces to retain that wonder wax museum sheen. Yet, there are those occasions where you hear about something that triggers that little part of your brain that makes you want to whip out the Bran Flakes and prunes. Here are just a few television-related events that may just have you looking for retirement communities in Florida.

True Hollywood Story: Punky Brewster airs this Sunday

by Adam Finley, posted Aug 18th 2006 12:01PM

punky brewsterThis Sunday a new E! True Hollywood Story covers Punky Brewster and its star Soleil Moon Frye. Punky Brewster, when it aired in the 1980s, was the most popular sitcom for ages 4 to 4 and a half, or so the ratings grid that only exists in my head claims. Really, though, the show wasn't very good. Though I suppose my eight year old self would argue differently. I suppose for a light comedy about child abandonment it was pretty okay. The special, I assume, will cover all the seedy goings on that happened behind the scenes, such as cocaine and heroin use, cockfighting, and chickens doing blow and getting in knife fights backstage. I'm not sure if any of that is actually true, since I just made it up, but we can all watch it Sunday evening and find out for ourselves, then we'll come back here and compare notes.
