Lark Voorhies first stole our hearts as Lisa Turtle on Saved by the Bell, where she joined forces with Tiffani-Amber Thiessen and Elizabeth Berkley to form a Triangle Offense of beauty. She turned heads with appearances on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and Martin, and from there graduated to a recurring role on In The House, and in How To Be a Player and How High. Voorhies was JET "Beauty Of The Week" bad, and even among that triumvirate of teen-dream hotness, she was a goddess.
Male and female children of the '90's alike will remember May 10, 2012 as the day their childhood officially died. Images of a Voorhies looking slightly off emerged a few years ago, but folks were stunned after seeing her Yahoo! interview yesterday. She looked nothing like the fallen angel we grew up worshipping, and it was heartbreaking.
Naturally, people retreated to Twitter to sound off on the cruel reminder that nothing lasts forever. Most traces of the girl we wanted to take on our go-kart as children were gone. We collected some of the damage, so in between shedding struggle tears while watching old episodes of Saved by the Bell, take a gander.
