So I’m doing my nightly Prader-Willi internet search and I come across the Foundation for Prader-Willi Research…not really sure what the difference is between it and PWSAUSA (besides being two completely different organizations). But as I am reading about the foundation, guess whose name pops up on their Scientific Board of Directors?
Mayim Bialik, Ph.D.
Remember her? Blossom Russo? The young Bette Midler in Beaches?
She did her dissertation in neuroscience in Prader-Willi Research, even has a blog on the FPWR website.
Well I couldn’t stop there, what happened to the rest of the Blossom bunch? God bless Wikipedia. Blossom’s dad is a sitcom director. Blossom’s friend, Six, is trying to break into the country music scene. Joey Lawrence came in third in the 2006-season of Dancing with the Stars. The other brother, the blond guy, is in The Dark Knight as one of the Joker’s goons–which means he wears a mask and gets knocked in the head by Batman.
