July 28: Happy Birthday Elizabeth Berkley and Lori Loughlin
If you grew up in the 80’s, you probably watched two of today’s birthday girls on TV. Elizabeth Berkley played the squeaky clean Jesse Spano on Saved by the Bell and Lori Loughlin portrayed Rebecca Donaldson on Full House. Berkley went on to infamy playing a stripper in the cult classic Showgirls whereas Loughlin has gone back to Full House for the reunion series on Netflix.
As a WTHH subject, Berkley gets special treatment here. She has her own gallery of course. It contains several pictures from the movie that was supposed to make Berkley a movie star by shattering her goody-two-shoes image. Showgirls has its own Facts You Need to Know article. And of course, Berkely and Showgirls were big winners at the Golden Raspberry Awards. The movie set records for the most nominations ever when it was released in 1995. The Razzies added to the movie’s total number of wins a few years later when they did their decade retrospective for the nineties. Berkley celebrates her 44th birthday today.
Loughlin has worked primarily in television. In addition to Full House, she appeared in an episode of Seinfeld and had a recurring role on the Beverly Hills 90210 revival. Loughlin turns 52 today.
Also celebrating birthdays today, Soulja Boy is cranking that at 26, Afroman is probably getting high at 42, Garfield creator Jim Davis is counting his money and laughing at 71 and voice of Optimis Prime Peter Cullen, is transforming into a 75-year-old. Former First Lady and fashion icon, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, was born on this day in 1929.
If today is your birthday, congratulations on sharing your big day with these notable names. Birthday wishes to everyone celebrating a big day today. Come back tomorrow for more celebrity birthdays.
