Biography for Tiffani Thiessen

Tiffani-Amber Thiessen was born on January 23, 1974 in Long Beach, California, USA to Frank Thiessen, a park designer, and Robyn Thiessen, a homemaker. She grew up in Long Beach with her parents and her brothers, professional cyclist Todd (b. 1968) and Schuyler (b. 1977). When Tiffani was 8, her uncle Roger Ernest suggested that she try modelling. Soon after, she appeared in her first TV commercials, and ad for The Peaches and Cream Barbie Doll. But Tiffani always got to hold Ken and never Barbie, about which she later stated: "I guess I wasn't blond enough." Afterwards, she started competing in several beauty pageants, and in 1987, she won the Miss Junior America pageant. She got her big screen break, when she was cast as the popular cheerleader Kelly Kapowski on the NBC series "Saved by the Bell" (1989) in 1989, which lasted for five years. But this was not at all the end of her career. Coinciding with the cancellation of "Saved by the Bell: The College Years" (1993), she was cast as the bitchy, conniving vixen, Valerie Malone, on Aaron Spelling's long-running hit series, "Beverly Hills, 90210" (1990). Here, she played the constant enemy of Kelly Taylor, played by Jennie Garth, although in real life, the two are actually best friends. Tiff also lived with co-star, Brian Austin Green for several years. She stayed with the show until 1998, and then left to pursue her movie career. The result were two independent movies, followed by two comedies and then a movie in which she starred alongside Woody Allen. She met actor Richard Ruccolo while starring as Marti in the hit sitcom, "Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place" (1998). In 2001, the couple became engaged. During the fall of 2002, she hooked up with best friend Jennie's husband, Peter Facinelli and Bill Bellamy on Fox's drama/action series, "Fastlane" (2002), where she starred as Billie Chambers, but the show was cancelled after one season. Tiff broke off her engagement to Richard Ruccolo in 2003, and is currently dating actor Brady Smith.
