Just in Case You Missed It: Bonet’s Denise Huxtable is widely known for her role as fashionista and a Cosby Show kid. Afterwards, she tried to do the spin-off thing with A Different World, however, we all know that when she was the central figure on the show…it was a bit of a bore. She was done with the show after season one because of her pregnancy with daughter Zoe (though she came back later as a guest and also went back to “The Cosby Show”), and since then, her career has been on chill mode. She was in the movie High Fidelity with John Cusack, Biker Boyz, and even on the show, Life on Mars. Even if her acting career isn’t all that, she’s still lucky because she gets to snuggle up with actor Jason Momoa…*drool*
Olivia Kendall was like a grown woman trapped in a little girls body. She was mad inquisitive and funny, and when she popped up on the show as Denise’s adorable step-daughter, she was an awesome addition to an already awesome cast. After the show, she did a lot of movies: The Little Rascals, Doctor Dolittle (1 & 2), The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement, College Road Trip, and the TV movies, “Revenge of the Bridesmaids” and “The Cheetah Girls.” TV wise, she did “Hangin’ With Mr. Cooper,” “That’s So Raven,” was a voice on “Kim Possible,” and recently tried to do the ABC Family show, “State of Georgia.” It was canceled though. Aside from being on-screen, she does music, releasing albums like Here’s to New Dreams (’93), Undeniable (’99), and her self-titled album (2008).
She’s now on Broadway doing “Sister Act.”
