Alyssa Milano One of hollywood's favorites, child actress and
model alyssa milano rose to fan-magazine fame in the role of Samantha
Micelli on the popular TV series Who's the Boss . Through the
run of this series, Milano made her TV-movie bow opposite no less
than Sir John Gielgud in 1986's The Canterville Ghost. Like many
former child stars, alyssa milano has done her utmost to break
her earlier image by appearing in adult roles calling for heavy
breathing and come-hither glances: perhaps her most spectacular
appearance along these lines was in the role of the estimable
Amy Fisher in the the 1992 TV movie Casualties of Love: The Long
Island Lolita Story. According to those who keep tabs on such
things, alyssa milano has lined up roles in "three or four
very adult movies."
Born December 19th, 1972, alyssa milano has created an image
not unlike the role she played of the Long Island lolita, Amy
Fisher. This is quite a departure from the innocent young role
she played when starring opposite Tony Danza, as Samantha Micelli,
in Who's The Boss from 1984 to 1992. Since then there have been
many sites on the internet showing alyssa milano's nude body,
all of which angered her mother, Lin Milano. alyssa milano's mother
formed safesearching.com to crack down on sites that used her
daughters' nude images, in fact she won $230,000 from a Minnesota
webmaster that allegedly used her nude photos on his site. Despite
all the crackdowns on her nudity, Milano says to YHM Magazine
"I'm not ashamed of the nude work I've done". Further
upsetting her mother perhaps was a recent naked honeymoon romp
with her now ex husband Cinjun Tate on the Isle of St. Bart's.
The tabloid managed to secure topless and bottomless pictures
of Alyssa rubbing suntan lotion on each other. Their marriage
though was short lived, as she filed divorce papers in Los Angeles
Superior Court on November 25th, citing irreconcilable differences
with the member of Remy Zero. It's not the first time Alyssa's
been unlucky in love, in 1993 she was engaged to Double Dragon
co-star Scott Wolf but shortly thereafter the relationship was
broken off. alyssa milano even had bad luck with her boys as a
child, when her first crush actually punched her when she tried
to give him a kiss. alyssa milano also told the Daily Dish that
she once stalked one of her boyfriends in hopes of catching him
cheating on her. In a recent report from e! online's Ted Casablanca,
apparently Milano has ditched dating celebrities and is seeing
a grip (i.e.. gopher) from the series alyssa milano's currently
starring in, Charmed. She's not alone though according to e!,
as Holly Marie Combs also is dating a grip.
While Who's the Boss was a big success for Milano, she as other
child stars fell in the role of being typecast. alyssa milano
even turned for a time to a singing career, releasing 5 albums
that Playboy calls "teeny-pop mush" and says her musical
credibility is "zilch. It's all very, very bad". Not
withstanding, all 5 Milano albums went platinum in Japan, where
she is recognized first as a singer, then an actress! In 1995,
alyssa milano landed a role of a sex crazed maniac (after her
encounter with aliens) in The Outer Limits, which included a made
for cable version in which Milano appeared naked. The show was
the highest rated film in its history. She's also played in such
notable films as Poison Ivy II (as Lily), Fear (as Margo Masse),
and upcoming in 2000, Buying the Cow, which is about a commitment
averse man who frantically hits the dating scene after his girlfriend
starts pressuring him to pop the question.
Her television career includes two notable series after Who's
the Boss, with roles in Melrose Place from 1997 to 1998 where
she starred as Jennifer Mancini, the younger sister of Michael
Mancini. Melrose producer Aaron Spelling decided to move her to
his new show on WB called Charmed, in which she stars opposite
reformed bad girl Shannen Doherty and newcomer Holly Marie Combs.
Tabloid reports initially had Doherty incensed that the sexy Milano
was again honing in on her territory, as the two have competed
for roles for a greater part of the 90's, but follow up reports
claim the two have settled their competitive differences and are
best of friends, in fact Combs and Doherty were maids of honor
in her marriage to Cinjun Tate. Her television commercial notoriety
was peaked when she starred in a series of Candie's television
and print ads which were banned from several networks and magazines.
The ads featured a skimply clad Milano in bra and panties waiting
in anticipation for her lover to make sweet monkey love with her,
but is delayed as he rifles through a drawer full of condoms to
find a Candie's perfume bottle. The print version features the
male model pulling down Milano's T-shirt, revealing her heaving
breasts, and spraying her cleavage with perfume.
