The popular NBC sitcom Blossom aired for four seasons from 1991 to 1995. Two of the show’s stars went on to have tremendous success in their post-Blossom years: Joey Lawrence and Mayim Bialik.
But whatever happened to the third main character on the show, Blossom’s BFF Six?
Most of us know that Lawrence parlayed his work playing Joey Russo into acting roles on TV shows like Brotherly Love and Melissa & Joey and also dabbled in music.
And almost everyone knows that Bialik went on to star on the long-running CBS sitcom The Big Bang Theory (much to everyone’s chagrin) and was even nominated four times for a Primetime Emmy Award.
Jenna von Oy, who played Six Dorothy Lemeure on Blossom, now 41, is a whole different story.
After Blossom ended, von Oy went to film school at USC, and was a member of the Kappa Alpha Theta sorority, but dropped out after a couple of years in order to resume her acting career.
Since then, von Oy has appeared in a couple of TV movies, made guest appearances on several TV shows, and even starred on the UPN (look it up) sitcom The Parkers from 1999 to 2004.
In the 15 years since The Parkers went off the air, we haven’t seen much of von Oy doig any acting. In fact, from 2007 to 2012 she didn’t do any acting at all.
And the last time she appeared in a movie or on TV was in 2017 when she showed up on an a Cops vs. TV Sitcoms episode of Battle of the Network Stars. Todd Bridges and Dave Foley were on her team, while Erik Estrada, Kelly Hu, and Jodi Lyn O’Keefe were on the winning Cops squad.
She also has two daughters, born in 2012 and 2014 and, according to her website, she has two books for sale called Situation Momedy: A First-Time Mom’s Guide To Laughing Your Way Through Pregnancy & Year One and Situation Momedy: A Very Special Episode in Toddlerdom.

For those of you who’ve been asking for additional proof that this reunion actually took place… YES! Mayim and I got to catch up and have lunch together during my recent LA trip. If you think we’re just two girls who are bound by history alone, you’d be underestimating the power of our connection. I’m so appreciative of this woman right here. “Blossom” was a mere stepping stone in our friendship… I’m so grateful for you, @missmayim! ❤️
And now, you know.
Speaking of throwbacks…
