Danielle Fishel: Big Hair is Big Love
Or Topanga Meets Sandwich
Danielle Fishel, best known for playing mega haired Topanga on Boy Meets World, was a great nerd crush. Topanga was smart, quirky (perhaps a bit too granola), and she hung out the venerable dorks like Minkus and Ben Savage. So, we say to ourselves, surely she would want to hang out with Wolf Gnards. If this cute girl likes those geeks, a lesser geek, such as my teenage self, must have looked like I walked right off the cover of Tiger Beat. Every prepubescent little nerd dreams of meeting a nice nerd girl, putting in the work, earning her heart and whatnot, then she accidentally or magical becomes hot, and then she's stuck with this homely nerd who put in so much effort.
Fishel actually dated Ben Savage both on the show and in real life. This wasn't just following the script. Ben Savage, best known for being a mutant growth of Fred Savage, actually dated Danielle Fishel. He fondled her big hair and other fondlable things. Not only that though, Fishel then turned around and dated Joey Lawrence's little brother (also on Boy Meets World). Dating Topanga is easy, just trap yourself in a room with her (where you're one of the few other members of the opposite sex), and constantly explain who your older brother is.
Me: Don't you know my brother is Ron Gnards.
Topanga: Ron Gnards you say... and I'm trapped in this elevator with you.
Topanga: I guess we better make out then.
Me: I guess so.
So, what happened to this hot young star, well she got less hot and less young. But she's still a fine geek crush. Danielle Fishel hosts The Dish on some lady network, which is kind of like Wolf Gnards for girls.
Topanga's Weight Gain
Danielle has an inverse hair to body relationship. See as Topanga's hair on the show decreased, her weight seemed to increase. Perhaps her body compensated for the change in mass. Regardless, Danielle got curvier, and curvy in a very good sort of way. But her hair kept getting straighter and straighter, clearing a pathway for sandwiches.
This doesn't change a thing.
- She's still cute.
- More of her to love.
- She's just becoming more attainable.
- Given her shortness and new width, she is roughly the same shape and size as R2-D2 and I love me some R2-D2.
