If you were a teen or pre-teen in the late 70’s / early 80’s, then chances are the faces on the right need no introduction – so many memories from the days when I read Teen Beat and Tiger Beat magazines!
Believe it or not I think Tiger Beat – which has been around since 1965 – is still going strong. Though I’m sure the celebrities are very different 😉 . Seems pre-teenage girls still like to annoy their parents by sticking posters all over the walls!
Back in the day, it was all about the TV stars: Shaun Cassidy (The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries), Leif Garrett (Three for the Road), Scott Baio (Happy Days), Jimmy McNichol (who?!), Greg Evigan (BJ and the Bear), Willie Aames (Eight is Enough), and Erik Estrada (CHiPs). Such spunks!
I Must Confess: I was totally crushing on Scott Baio – better known as Chachi from Happy Days.
Looking back on it now, I was definitely attracted to a certain “type” … just look at the man I married.
Dark hair and olive skin? Check.
Gorgeous puppy dog eyes? Check.
Italian descent? Check … See what I mean? 😉
So now it’s your turn to confess all: who was your teen idol? And do you remember Teen Beat or Tiger Beat?!
Linking up with My Home Truths for some celebrity confessions today!
