Alisan Porter from Curly Sue
She stole our hearts as the little con artist in Curly Sue, but the former child star had a bit of a rough road since and battled with alcoholism. She has been sober for years now and has a happy family. She opened up about her alcoholism on her blog Lil Mamas. Oh, and she sings now.
Andrew, who played the super douche, Joey, in 10 things I Hate About You, kind of fizzled out. According to the FW he did do some work on various TV shows and movies, but for the most part his career is over.
Remember this angry rapper who was part of Murder Inc and had many public feuds with artists like Eminem and 50 Cent? Well, he became a born-again Christian in 2013 and made a film called I’m In Love With A Church Girl. Now he uses his celebrity status to spread the good word.
Also part of the Murder Inc crew, this songstress was off the scene for almost 6 years, until ending her relationship with rapper Nelly. Then she did what every artist does – made music about it. Her album Braveheart dropped in March 2014.
Arguable the biggest child star of the early '00s, Frankie retired at age 19 after making some serious bank. He did a number of things from open road racing to being a drummer for the band Kingsfoil, but we will always love him for being the super smart kid from Malcolm in the Middle.
Who loves orange soda? No one thought Kenan and Kel would split, but they did. While Kenan Thompson is now a regular on SNL, his counterpart (who didn’t make the SNL cut – ouch) pursued a rap career and is back on the small screen according to Hollywood.com.
She kicked a whole lot of ass in Tank Girl and then crawled into a post-apocalyptic hole of movies and TV shows that no one saw. She continues to act and her latest appearance is in the hit show Orange Is The New Black.
She was the Queen of rom-coms at one stage, and while she never really left the spotlight, her career dimmed significantly after 2001. She has taken a stab at directing with the upcoming film Ithaca, in which she also stars.
Remember when she and Brandy were all like The Boy Is Mine? Well, the singer took time off in the mid ‘00s to look after her two young sons and hasn’t really made a comeback. She’s now happily married to basketball player Shannon Brown.
Admit it, you have belted out Vanessa’s A Thousand Miles at least once in your life. The singer-song writer is still making music and will be releasing an album called Liberman in October. Hollywood Reporter says the album release was delayed due to the birth of her daughter.
