Minding my business and attacking my Friday to-do list so I can get to my overdue hair appointment today, I caught MissInfo scribe Mikey Fresh’s tweet “Why Lisa Turtle why?” Naturally I was curious, so I asked him the deal and he replied that maybe Lark Voorhies, the actress who played Lisa Turtle on the early ’90s teen show “Saved By The Bell,” was perhaps a “big Lil Kim fan?” Huh?
Well, when I googled Ms. Voorhies, I found the image above. Plastic surgery is the devil, unless you’re Mariah Carey. From the Christian Post:
Voorhies played the glamorous, fashionable, and spoiled Lisa Turtle on “SBTB” and was a member of the original cast when the series premiered on NBC in 1989. Originally titled “Good Morning, Miss Bliss,” the show soon changed its name. Voorhies won the role “by default,” she recently told Michael Yo on his web series “The Yo Show.”
Now she is “quite wonderful and very busy,” she said. “I’ve got a new company ‘Yo Soy Production’ and a brand-new film ‘The Hope for Pandora’s Box,’ which I wrote, directed, starred in, and executive produced.”
There is currently no release date for the film, but it is obvious that Voorhies is proud of the project.
I’m hoping that this photo above is just from an awkward angle and that black doesn’t crack, etc. I’m hoping it’s just a case of Ms. Voorhies wearing too much makeup, right? That can age someone … pray with me?
ps. And why does a Christian publication care about Ms. Voorhies’ plastic surgery? Random.
