It seems like it was just yesterday when young boys’ hearts went pitter-patter over actress Tiffani Thiessen when she starred as the lovable Kelly Kapowski on “Saved by the Bell.”
Well, Thiessen is all grown up now and probably will rekindle some of those old crushes tonight when she hosts her 34th birthday party at Pure nightclub at Caesars Palace.
Thiessen, who worked the majority of her career as Tiffani-Amber Thiessen, went on to take the role of devilish Valerie Malone on “Beverly Hills, 90210.”
