If you grew up watching The Wonder Years, you more than likely had a crush on Winnie Cooper, played by Danica McKellar. The show ran from 1988 until 1993 and chronicled the life of Kevin Arnold and his family and friends as they liived through the late '60s and early '70s. Winnie was Kevin's constant flame for the duration of the series.
This past week news of McKellar's divorce from husband Mike Verta brought her back into the national consciousnesses -- as if we could forget her -- and her openness about the heartbreaking turn of events has been dished about on celebrity blogs up and down the line. The actress/author was married for three years and has a young son with Verta. McKellar is also an in-demand voice actress.

Richard Dean Anderson
it's super-hard to believe that the MacGyver star was never married. There is joke here about getting out of dangerous jams and obstacles that I leave you to make up for yourself.
Robbie Sinclair From Dinosaurs
Weirder shit has happened, and by now this Hypsilophodon should be a handsome, virile 45 year-old by now.
The next best thing next to big brother Fred, and Topanga can come hang out and take her shirt off. (rimshot)

Throw all of us '80s babies for a loop and hook up Paul Pfeiffer, Kevin's best friend from Wonder Years. He's a rich lawyer now, when he is not Marilyn Manson. Someone's WY fan-fiction blog just blew up.
