Clarissa: Same Great Expressions, New Wardrobe
Back in the day, she was just a fashion-forward teenager with a heck of a lot of curiosity. She investigated important topics, like blind dates, with the help of her dude best friend, Sam. Cool, smart, and resourceful, Clarissa always figured out what she didn't know, learned it, and then taught us with her newfound wisdom.
As the star of one of the first shows led by a female, featuring Ferris Bueller-style fourth wall breakdowns, MelJoHa could have easily annoyed us with her constant camera talking, but never did.
After Clarissa, Melissa starred in Sabrina the Teenage Witch, had leading roles in movies like Drive Me Crazy, and returned to the small screen for Melissa & Joey, with fellow '90s star Joey Lawrence. Now 37 years old, Melissa has been married to musician Mark Wilkerson since 2003, and the pair has three boys: seven-year-old Mason, five-year-old Braydon, and one-year-old Tucker.
