You are all wondering why I am posting this article right?
As a disclaimer, I have NO issue with gay people, in fact I am one of those heathens that thinks gay people should be able to marry...but, this news devastates me. Really it saddens the 12 year old in me that had a HUGE crush on "Doogie Howser". In my fantasy world, I was going to some home meet him and steal him away from Lisa Dean Ryan (aka Wanda on the show) and he would be mine forever. I was just as crushed when I found out Ricky Schroder (excuse me Rick Schroder) was happily married with a gaggle of kids.
I was so excited to see Neil Patrick Harris back on prime time when "How I Met Your Mother" pushed its way into the spotlight. I was even more excited to find that AFN (Armed Forces Network the TV we have here) carried "How I Met You Mother". If you have not seen this show, give it a try. It is extremely funny, even more so now knowing that Doogie is gay, since his character Barney is such a womanizer (and makes no apologies for it). It just proves to me once again what a good actor he is. Honestly it is nice to see him back on TV and showing the world he did not succumb to the normal childhood actor problems. I am happy to know that all three of my major childhood TV crushes have all gone on to do well for themselves, and if they have had any major drama (ie drugs, prostitutes etc) they have kept it pretty much in the dark.
Oh, my 3rd crush? Who else....Zack Morris! Honestly though, Mark Paul Gosselar is way hotter now that he lost that BAD 80's Vanilla Ice blonde hair due.
I guess I am just stuck with Alan, oh no wait, there is always Zach... he isn't married yet is he?
Ok people, spill it. Who was your childhood fantasy crush?
