“ I cannot explain the power this one has over me. Every time I see her smile, a thousand rainbows shoot across the sky, and the sun weeps for joy on the grassy fields of my happiness. Everything stops and restarts to the rhythm of a million butterflies' wings. When she laughs the sky ripples like a river of liquid light, and the stars shiver with delight. With a flash of her eyes, I am undone: I would that I were a whisper in her ear, to sing her the song that she inspires.
Or maybe she's just a cutie that makes me laugh and smile. I really can't explain...and the wind cries, "Kayco..."
Also not liking that picture too much. Too girly/glammy and "shiny". She's grown up a bit since then. Read her lips: She don't need all that gloss. ” - jdsongster
“ Very attractive yet saucy (or salty, take your pick) comedienne who stole my heart right out of my chest in Bridesmaids. She is currently the face of Hillshire Farms Smoked Sausage and Russell's wacky bride on Rules of Engagement. Love this pic, too, but she looks a little like Sherry Stringfield in this one. Doesn't do justice to her big gorgeous....
...eyes. ” - jdsongster
Allie Gonino was born in Fort Worth, Texas, and grew up in the small Dallas suburb of Heath. As the youngest of three half-siblings, Allie knew what she wanted out of life, very early on.

“ They say her name is Italian for "baker". Bet she can make a mean batard. Also played a lemur on "Dinosaur." (Or was that a wolf on "That Penguin Movie 2: No, The Other One Where They Dance"? You can never tell with those animated picture shows). And we can never forget the various and sundry ways she was burned, bruised, and dismembered on Heroes.
Oh, and she was Lizzie on Guiding Light, Too. Go Baker Girl!! ” - jdsongster

She actually reminds me a lot of my friend Serenity, who I hope is reading this. Because everybody should read these cheesy lists. ” - jdsongster

“ As this one gets older, she gets more attractive to me. Never thought much of her on Married: With Children, but as she's developed her body of work (and her body), she's become quite a talented comedic actress, the hot blonde that makes you laugh...in other words, the ultimate Blonde Assassin. Oh, and surviving cancer was pretty cool, too. I hope Kayco looks like her when she grows up. ” - jdsongster

“ She's really won me over with this Once Upon a Nursery Rhyme gig. Yes, she was great on House and HIMYM, but she can really anchor a show, and it's kinda cool to see her play a badass cop/bail bondswoman/storybook princess. I'd love so be able to say something cool like, "Oh yes, we're related; she's the cousin of my wife, Linda Morrison Derby."
