Yes, as the title implies, it is the 48th birthday of the youngest member of The Jacksons’ musical family, as Miss Janet was born today in 1966. As an accomplished entertainer, her works have only been rivaled by her brother Michael in terms of overall longevity and success. She has also been an actress on such 70s and 80s classic shows like Good Times, Diff’rent Strokes, and Fame. Of course, I will cut this off with the fact that she also changed TV with the infamous Super Bowl “wardrobe malfunction”…but that was a minor speed bump in her long, storied career.
Also celebrating today would have been veteran actor Henry Fonda (1905-1982), flamboyant pianist Liberace (1919-1987), former Yankee manager Billy Martin (1928-1989), the original “Batgirl” from the original ’60s Batman, Yvonne Craig (1937), the star of Machete and its sequel (and a TON of other movies), Danny Trejo was born in 1944, former James Bond Pierce Brosnan (five points if you know his original starring role LOL) was born in 1953 and former gymnast Olga Korbut was born in 1955.
Also born in 1955 was classic 80s actress Mare Winningham, former NBA star and actor John Salley was born in 1964, “Bones” and former “Angel” David Boreanaz (1969), former “Growing Pains” co-star Tracey Gold (1969), the ever popular daughter of producer Aaron Spelling, Tori Spelling was born in 1973, and (forgive the pun) the always foxy Megan Fox was born in 1986.
Sorry to interrupt your lives again…wait, no I’m not…thanks for reading a weird post…
