Blossom Russo - All grown up
Mayim Bialik, better known as Blossom Russo in the early-1990s NBC television sitcom 'Blossom' recently spoke-out to Larry King about the death of former child star Corey Haim. So often, we hear about the negative sides of being a child actor and having to deal with the fame and glory of being so successful at such an influential age. Ironically, that is just what Mayim spoke with Larry King about. The reason that I am writing about her though and not Corey Haim is because she is truly a success story. The editor's note to Mayim's editorial on Larry King's website informs us that "after the series ended, she earned a degree in Neuroscience and Hebrew and Jewish Studies, and later, a Ph.D. in Neuroscience."
Congrats to you Mayim Bialik for beating the odds and not becoming another statistic.
