Before They Were Stars (2-for-1 Special): Leah Remini and Vivica A. Fox on “Who’s the Boss?”

You may be familiar with the term “back-door pilot”, where an established TV show will spend an entire episode focusing on some secondary characters who are about to get their own spin-off series. In 1989, this episode of¬†Who’s the Boss? put the spotlight on some of Alyssa Milano’s college friends, who soon got a spin-off show, Living Dolls. Two of these characters are played by Leah Remini and Vivica A. Fox in early roles. Living Dolls¬†received mostly negative reviews and was cancelled after only 12 episodes, but the series did contain another historic “Before They Were Stars” moment. After the pilot episode, Vivica A. Fox was replaced by none other than Halle Berry in her very first acting role. Sadly, at the moment, there is no footage of her to be found on Youtube.
