Recently, me and my lady friend were having a discussion about our first celebrity crush. For many, myself included, this is very different from your first celebrity obsession (hey, Natalie Portman); your initial famous person infatuation is oftentimes someone who appealed to you before you even knew what that meant. After thinking about it for some time, I came up with two answers: the original Becky Conner from Roseanne and Married…with Children‘s Kelly Bundy, as played by Christina Applegate.
I doubt I’m alone here, especially after Danger posted that falcon picture. She was trashy, sure, but in a really naive, approachable way. I never worked up the courage to talk to someone who looked like her in my middle school (or at least the upstate New York version of her), but Kelly’s sexuality rarely felt threatening. Now, I don’t want to say it’s because she wasn’t the brightest bulb above the rack of spandex dresses…but, yeah.
After retiring her leather jacket in 1997, the consistently reliable and likable Applegate has gone onto star in Samantha Who? and Up All Night, and she hosts SNL tonight. With that in mind, this GIFs of the Week is dedicated to the one-of-a-kind Kelly Bundy. Never stop dancing.
Obviously not from last Sunday’s Boardwalk Empire, but I’m still using it. Like it too much. (Via)
There’s a sad lack of The Middle GIFs out there, so here’s a picture of the bunny from this week’s episode.
