Keshia, you're a big girl now

Little Rudy Huxtable = all grown up.

Keshia Knight Pulliam

That cute elementary-schooler in pigtails that was America's kid sister in the '80's, Keshia Knight Pulliam, recently turned 29 years old. For people my age, Keshia is like a one-woman version of the Olsen twins that we watched grow up on tv. The difference is that Keshia's a lot better looking, and successfully graduated from college.

Her post-"Cosby Show" career hasn't really taken off (though she was in Beauty Shop with Queen Latifah), but now she's about to enter an important rite of passage for anyone transitioning from child star to adult actress: starring in Tyler Perry's latest family movie as a hooker named Candy.

Who's America's pigtailed cutiepie now? That'll show 'em!

I just learned she also appeared in a 2003 Chingy video with a brief shot of her in a bra [video]. OK girl, we get it, you can put your shirt back on.

Keshia's a one-girl version of the Olsen twins? She's got more bazongas than those two put together.

If I could remember a single funny moment or catchphrase from The Cosby Show right now - and I watched it religiously all through the 1980s - I'd make a play on it, but I can't.

The bazongas make the post-pubescent child star.

My favorite Cosby Show scene is when the Huxtables teach a hungover Vanessa a lesson by pretending to play a drinking game in which little Rudy has to do a shot of whiskey.


It's still good.
