Married… with Children has gone down in history as one of the most successful and influential sitcoms of all time, with 11 seasons of the show having been produced after it’s debut in 1987. In addition to the show’s memorable main cast, a variety of notable guest stars appeared on the show over the course of it’s original run. Some of these guest stars were already famous, while others were simply struggling actors with small parts that later became notable for bigger and better things. Many of these stars were gorgeous women, and we’ll be looking at the most beautiful of them in this video! Join Facts Verse as we explore the most gorgeous celebrity guest stars on Married… with Children!
Married… with Children was a groundbreaking sitcom that followed a family led by parents Al and Peggy Bundy. Though the two had a slightly antagonistic relationship, they always stayed madly in love with each other and always got along again by the end of the day. In addition to the dysfunctional relationship dynamic between the two parents, their two children further complicated matters. Those two children were Kelly and Bud, the former of whom was played by Christina Applegate. Christina would go on to become the biggest star out of the show’s main cast after it’s end.
Besides giving rise to the career of Christina Applegate, a variety of other beautiful female performers were featured in a guest capacity over the course of Married… with Children’s 11 seasons. Some of these guest performers went on to have great careers in the entertainment industry thanks to their incredible looks, while others were already notable in some form before making their guest appearances.
One gorgeous star that appeared as a guest on Married… with Children is Keri Russell. Keri appeared as a character by the name of April Adams, who dated Bud Bundy for an episode. The name of the episode was “Radio Free Trumaine”, and the conflict of the episode centered on one of Bud’s schoolmates swooping in and ruining the romance.
Once it was revealed that Bud’s schoolmate had plans to take Bud’s new love away from him, the two got into a fight. Little did they know that their fight was being broadcast to the whole school over it’s radio station, causing April to lose interest in both of the boys out of pure disgust.
Keri’s memorable turn on Married… with Children was one of the actress’s first roles, and she is still working to this day. She is better known now for starring in the FX drama series The Americans. The show also featured actor Matthew Rhys, and the two now have a child together. Keri has received multiple award nominations for her time on the show, including for both Emmy Awards and Golden Globes. While she didn’t win any of these, she did win a Satellite Award for Best Actress for her work on the show in 2015.
Although most of Keri’s work since appearing on Married… with Children has been on television, she was given a rare lead role in a film with Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, which was a major critical and commercial success for the long-running franchise. Nowadays, Keri is more focused on family life than working, but she’s still around.
While Fergie is known best nowadays as a singer, she had a few acting gigs when she was first starting out in the entertainment industry. One such gig was on Married… with Children, where she played a character that tricked Bud into letting several men butt in front of him at a concert. Fergie used her good looks to charm Bud, who was always willing to fall for the tricks of any woman that would talk to him.
Since appearing on Married… with Children, Fergie has risen to international superstardom thanks to her work in the music industry. Fergie was one of the vocalists of the popular music group The Black Eyed Peas from 2002 to 2018, with her voice contributing to much of the group’s appeal. In addition to her work with the group in hits such as “I Gotta Feeling” and “Boom Boom Pow”, Fergie also released a solo album by the name of The Duchess that was a big seller.
Tiffani Thiessen is another attractive star that appeared on Married… with Children. She played a former classmate of Bud’s that pulled a traumatizing prank on him in middle school. The episode she featured in saw Bud trying to get revenge on her character for the aforementioned prank, though she ended up getting the upper hand once again.
Saved by the Bell fans will, of course, know that Tiffani Thiessen is the actress who played the character of Kelly Kapowski, and Tiffani took on her role as the character around the same time that she appeared on Married… with Children. Her time on Saved by the Bell proved to be much more influential over her future career, as she went on to star in many other successful teen shows after it’s cancellation. In more recent years, Kelly has continued acting. She appeared on the cable series White Collar, and more recently has taken on a voice-acting gig on the animated series Jake and the Never Land Pirates.
