There was a lot of popular stars that we grew up watching, but few were as influential as the one and only Alyssa Milano. She was absolutely wonderful on Who's The Boss, and was a lot of people's very first crush.
Stars always had to do a lot of things to figure out how to stay relevant, and Milano found a way to do it. Workout videos had become super popular, so she created the Alyssa Milano's Teen Steam video and it was awesome.
She explained how the video actually came to be, "It was during the time when they started to pull all funding out of schools for [physical education], so there was a need for it. And it was also the time when Jane Fonda had her workout videos."
Jane Fonda's videos were insanely popular, it seemed like everyone's mom had one. But Alyssa appealed to a younger demographic, and she was always happy to hear about people's experience with the tapes.
"To hear stories about how kids would do it and it helped them to feel good about themselves, it's great."
