It’s as about as guilty of a pleasure as one can have: Nikki on the WB.

Nikki Cox is… um, Nikki. You may remember her from the Married With Children rip-off Unhappily Ever After. She places the supermodel-esque unemployed dancer who lives in a small apartment with her indie league pro-wrestling husband Dwight. Dwight’s wrestling character is the Crybaby, who comes to the ring in a schoolboy outfit and a big lollypop.

Cheesy, yes, but like Boy Meets World, it’s one of those shows I can’t turn away from if it catches my eye while I’m flipping the dial.

Yeah, she sure has some rack. Plus, she played Drew Carrey's niece on his show. I guess that's good.

Large mammary glands paired with a perky personality resulting in one's own TV series....hmmmm. Can you say "Jenny McCarthy"? "Pam Anderson"? etc etc. Wow. What a surprise.

Interesting thing I discovered: she was in a semi-early episode of Star Trek: TNG playing a little girl. (The ep was Pen Pals.) Had to look thrice at that bit of info.

Tina -- Yeah, happens pretty frequently, huh? She plays that semi-ditzy attitude occasionally on her show, but it's more the wrestling husband that keeps things interesting beyond the initial "Wow, look at her" stage.

I believe she once was on an episode of Baywatch, when I was in jr. high. She played a friend of Hobies.
Speaking of Boy Meets World, did anyone watch the Marathon on New Years Day? I watched about 6 hours of it.

Mike -- Woa. Really? Can any of the other SbtB fanatics here remember that?

Ah -- you were just a bit off, Mike. According to the IMDB, she played Allison on an episode of California Dreams titled "Sly's Blind Girlfriend."
