Childhood Idols and Crushes

A recent blog has had me thinking about who I idolized and had crushes on when I was a kid. The people kids idolize today make me want to cringe - such a far cry from when I was a kid. Who did you idolize and have crushes on when you were young?

Women I idolized were Mary Tyler Moore, Carol Burnett (even wrote to her!), and Cher. The only guys I can remember having a crush on was David Cassidy and Michael Jackson (way back in the day folks...Don't Stop 'Till You Get Enough days).

Oh my gosh Sxze I idolized Carol Burnett too! She was so great! As far as the guys go I had crushes on Scott Baio, Ralph Macchio and the band A-ha. They were all so cute! I loved the 80's.

Oh! I was a David Cassidy fan too! Got to see him in Germany when I was a kid. Still enjoy his music. For eye candy? A big Parker Stevenson fan... *sigh*

I always (and still am) have been a bog fan of Kathrine Hepburn.

Pinky Tuscadaro (Fonzie's true love) I always liked her little sister, Leather! (did you know she had a 1-hit-wonder? NAME THAT TUNE! And yes, I know what it is :)

Leif Garrett - what exactly was his claim to fame? He was smattered all over Teen Beat and Tiger Beat, but why??? His "singing career" came after fame hit...

David Cassidy - Looking, just how did get to see him?!? I'd have DIED to see him in the flesh!!!

DK - You reminded me of my Peter Frampton poster...remember, the one in the pink satin pants??? LOL Oh, and let's not forget Andy Gibb - what a hottie! (Of course, Barry Gibb was pretty damned hot, too!) But I have to agree, Linda Carter was one of my idols, too - I wanted those bracelets (got the boobs)!

Twin sistas from different mothas, separated at birth and reunited on AMD. That's scary and freaky and yet a totally cool idea

I will never be allowed to forget Kristy, LMAO, people STILL tell me I look like her, it cracks me UP!!

Ya know...I honestly don't remember what his claim to fame was...but he sure was cute!
