Punky Brewster's back!

Posted on


soleil-moon-frye-punky-brewster_lWell, for at least four-and-a-half minutes. To celebrate collecting 1 million Twitter followers, Soleil Moon Frye decided to don her Punky Brewster gear as a thank you to fans. And holy macanoli, does the 33-year-old mother of two still pull off neon! I always love when former child stars are willing to have a laugh at themselves (hello Mark-Paul Gosselaar!), and the artist formally known as Punky totally wins me over at the 3:30 mark, when pointing to her bad-ass leg bandana: “Punky was gangster before gangster was even gangster!” Watch and enjoy—particularly the shout-out to Frye’s filming assistant, Mrs. Kutcher herself.
