From drab to fab

What Not To Wear returns for its new season May 29 by making over the star of Blossom, Mayim Bialik.

From drab to fabEvery now and then, we hear of a star who makes us react with an "OMG, what happened to her?" Blossom's star Mayim Bialik is just one of those names that make you take a stroll down TV memory lane.

She's kind of like a one-hit wonder. After all, Blossom was a huge hit on NBC from 1990 through 1995 in the same era as Will Smith from the Fresh Prince of Bel Air. He hit rock-star movie status. As for Mayim? Not so much.

Well, fast forward a few years. Mayim Bialik is now the mom of two sons, Miles (3-1/2) and Frederick, 9 months. You can imagine what happened next: This mom signed up for a makeover on TLC's What Not to Wear!

Mayim admits to having no time to shop and wearing clothes that are a bit baggy. Quite frankly, she seems like the cool neighbor down the street who'd be hanging on the porch with a cup of coffee.

Anyway, 33-year-old Bialik says she's a hands-on mom. Mayim and her husband raise their boys with -- get this -- no external help!

In Hollywood parenting terms, that means no nanny, no child care -- just good ol' fashioned TLC from Mom and Dad.

Mayim's acting career seems to have taken a back seat after soaring in the NBC sitcom. Sure, she's made a few appearances on shows like Fat Actress and Curb Your Enthusiasm and will appear on an episode of TNT's Saving Grace in July. But overall, the love of her life is plural: Her sons and husband.
