Where does she go from here? We talk about all of the above this week on @HHPlace!


22 | Lisa Jakub (Mrs' Doubtfire"/"Independence Day")

Sometimes the face, not the name, you know is the most familiar of all.

14 | Shannon Elizabeth (American Pie)

Copy for Shannon Elizabeth: We first got to know her as the hottest foreign exchange student in cinematic history in the teen classic "American Pie" and it's sequel. Subsequent roles in "Love Actually" and "Silent Bob and Jay Strike Back" did little to distract us from her mutual love affair with the camera, but little did we know that Shannon Elizabeth's true passion was protecting animals. Her nonprofit organization, "Animal Avengers", has blossomed from a CA-cased shelter to an...

Did you ever notice that the TV shows, music and movies that you loved as a teen or young adult stay with you forever?

More fun, entertaining and beautiful than ever, Debbe' chatted with me about her brand new TV show and lifelong passion: (dude ranches!).

Melora Hardin is one of those old-school talents that does it all… she sings, she acts, and she dances… boy, does she dance!
