Danielle Fishel AKA Topanga from Boy Meets World, got married over the weekend. And so did another BMW star, Rider Strong. Ms. Fishel is a pretty harmless and low key celeb, and certainly didn’t deserve the spew of hate she got on twitter from people calling her “fat” in her wedding photos. The thing is though, I’m scouring twitter and gossip blogs and I can’t find any comments that rag on her appearance. Perhaps they’ve been deleted? But her tweets to her haters remain. Here they are, oldest to most recent, from twitter:
You know what makes dealing with rude comments easy? Love & happiness. I’ll just keep being the happiest me & you keep being the rudest you.
Ppl saying I was FAT @ my wedding: u r the worst kind of ppl on the PLANET. I weigh 107 pounds & am 5’1″. YOU are the reason anorexia exists
I hope you’ll look at your own miserable lives and learn to stop judging others on their weight and looks. Love and happiness wins again.
Side note, I plan on coming home from this honeymoon weighing 299 pounds. #love #goodfood #adultbeverages #allday
Poor Danielle. She comes off a little overly defensive –like why not just ignore these rude people and focus on your brand new exciting marriage — but I can understand why. All she did was get married and enjoy one of the happiest days in her life and then suddenly she’s got a bunch of people calling her fat. I wonder if she got the same amount of criticism for her Maxim photos.

Rider Strong, best known for playing Shawn on ’90s kids fave Boy Meets World got married over the weekend. And so did Danielle Fishel, who played Topanga (and also recently showed off her bod in Maxim). Ha, wasn’t this headline misleading? Didn’t you totally think for one moment that they married each other? Man, would Cory have been steamed!
Rider Strong married some chick named Alexandra Barreto and Ms. Fishel married some dude named Tim Belusko. As Mr. Strong told People, “That was my fault, [Danielle] chose the date first.” Man, so awkward if you’re tight with the Boy Meets World cast. Which wedding do you pick? Which one was Feeny at? I said, FEE-NAY! FEE-EE-EE-EEEEENAAAAAY!
Congrats to both.

Danielle Fishel, best known as Topanga Lawrence from the beloved 90′s show Boy Meets World, is Maxim‘s April cover girl. Ms. Fishel, now 31, is promoting her new show Girl Meets World, the Boy Meets World spin-off. In this show, her character and lBen Savage‘s character (Cory Matthews) have a daughter. Here are some of my favorite parts of her interview from Maxim:
Where the heck did the name Topanga come from?
Michael Jacobs, who created Boy Meets World, says he was driving down the highway when production called and said, “We need a name for this character!” He happened to be driving past Topanga Canyon, so he said, “Topanga.” He says that if they had called him two miles later, I would’ve been named Canoga, which is the next exit.
Did you party with the rest of the TGIF crew, like Urkel or the Olsen twins?
One time we were all on a private jet going to Disney World, and my mom, dad, and brother were also with me. We had these four seats facing each other with curtains, so we had our own little private family area. Anyway, we were trying to take a nap, and all of a sudden Bob Saget walks down the aisle, rips open our curtain, and shouts, “Do you guys have any coke?!” Then he looks my dad in the eye, laughs, and closes the curtain. My mom was like, “What was that all about?”
We hear you recently had dinner with your former costars Ben Savage and Rider Strong.
And Will Friedle, who played Cory’s brother, Eric! We went to Rider’s house for dinner, and it was one of the more fun evenings I’ve had in my whole life. With the news of Girl Meets World coming out, we were kind of like, well, let’s actually have a reunion.
THAT DINNER WAS PROBABLY AWESOME.

If this is any indication of what Danielle‘s going to be like when ‘Girl Meets World’ premieres, I’m sad to say that Ben Savage really needs to do some serious overacting to make up for Danielle and her Big Important Stage Presence.
This is Danielle, obviously, playing Lindsay Lohan playing Liz Taylor, and normally I’d say, yeah, go ahead and jump in—cash in on Lindsay’s self-plague of misfortune and milk that shit, but wait … no, I don’t think that’s all that cool, and I don’t think it’s wise of Danielle to hop in on this and make a mockery when she’s got her very own show debuting sometime in the near future.
Don’t get me wrong, Danielle’s still cute and all, but going for this easy shot? In such an over-the-top kind of way? I don’t like it—not a bit.

You guys, I almost totally forgot! The Entertainment Lawyer who scribes Crazy Days and Nights is finally “naming names,” as is his hallowed New Year’s Day tradition.
Emily hit on some of the year’s best, most salacious scandals, but you guys! THERE IS SO MUCH MORE.

I think the writers over at Page Six have officially lost their minds. They did a photo gallery titled “50 Fat Celebrities”. So, I took a look, and sandwiched in among the likes of Kirstie Alley and Kathy Bates is Elisha Cuthbert. You know, the hot, blond chick from 24? I mean, did they just hit a point where they couldn’t think of anyone else so they just threw in some random picture? Dudes, how about Raven Fucking Symone? Raven I Love My Curves Symone dodged this bullet and Cuthbert, who admittedly does have some slightly unfortunate knee fat, is one of the top 50 fattest?
I’m feeling kind of depressed today and so did not need to wake up to this. In fairness, I don’t know how old this picture of Elisha in a bikini is, but I have some in the gallery of Elisha over the past few months. If this is the definition of fat, I’m scheduling my gastric bypass, stat. Ah, poetry, and on only two hours of sleep. You’re welcome.
My other issue is that they had dead dudes on the list like Elvis, Marlon Brando and Orson Welles. It is my opinion that, once you kick off, you no longer have the privilege of a “Fat Celeb” title.
Other fatty title-holders include Kelly LeBrock, Rachel Hunter, Danielle Fishel and, yup, Jessica Simpson.
