So last night I was watching Mad Men and the girl who is married to Harry looked oddly familiar to me. So I kept looking and looking and finally said that she kind of looked like what Kimmy Gibbler (Full House's annoying neighbor) would look like if she was grown up and then dressed in '60s hair and makeup. I know. My mind works in weird and mysterious ways... and yes this means that I watched way more of that show than I should actually admit. Of course looking at the credits it is clearly not Andrea Barber (the gal who played one of the most irritating TV characters of all time... yet I could relate, as I was an annoying and sometimes dense teenager). But I was rather surprised to see that she had not one single credit (at least according to IMDb) since her days as the frizzy-haired Gibbler.
Given the troubled paths of some of the other Full House stars, I was compelled to figure out what happened to her. Did she go the Jodie Sweetin route, turning into a meth addict then recovering and having a normal life? Does she hang with the Olsen twins and get mixed up in all their celebu-tard hijinks? Is she a foul-mouthed comedian like Bob Saget who does Broadway and does voiceover work? Or is she just dwelling in obscurity waiting for her chance to be on a third-rate reality series when they get tired of putting Dave Coulier on shows like Skating with the Celebrities. Is she doing religious programming and spreading the word via blog like Candace Cameron?
Shockingly enough, Barber seems to have opted out of the acting world altogether: she went to college abroad and is now apparently living the life in the UK, where she's married and raising two kids (at least according to my "research" (which pretty much extends to IMDb and Wikipedia and some completely unofficial fan sites). Well good for her. I hope that she at least has learned to tame that wild and unnaturally large hair. Even moms shouldn't be subjected to atrocious tresses.
