So, funny story behind this Crush of the Week. I was watching some old episodes of "Are You Afraid of the Dark" the other night, and they got to the point where the first "pretty girl" member of the storytelling group, The Midnight Society, was replaced by pretty girl number two. I believe they eventually got to a third one, and she was someone who became very famous for a few years sometime later, but then, suddenly disappeared. More on her some other week though. Let's get back to pretty girl number two. She was, frankly, super cute, and I had forgotten about her until now. So, naturally, I decided to look her up. Turns out she was Joanna Garcia, from the TV show "Reba", among other things. She just looks waaaay different, a big reason being that her hair was very different on "Are You Afraid of the Dark". She had that curly redhead thing goin' on. Yeah, so, that was a big shock! I had plans to make her a Crush of the Week all along! Never watched Reba, but I did linger on it while flipping channels sometimes, just to check out Joanna. And she's actually supposed to be in line to play Ariel on "Once Upon a Time" sometime this season! Hope that's still the plan! Oh, and yeah, she's got an extra last name now. Turns out she got hitched. Bah! Oh well, the girl I've been hanging out with lately has gotten my mind completely off these celebrity crushes. She's the most beautiful girl I've ever seen! I just post these longtime crushes of mine for nostalgia and for you good folks. Enjoy!
