Mark-Paul Gosselaar's Mom

Pin It Now!
If you are new to my blog, on Wednesdays I post about my experience in Hollywood as a former child/teen actress. If you want to start at the beginning of these posts go here.
------
One of the ways people often find my blog is by searching for "Mark-Paul Gosselar's Mom." Seriously.
Who is searching for her and why?
In the past it has led them to this post. Now it will lead them here where they will be overwhelmed by the fashion genius of the early 90s. Let those who Google "Mark-Paul Gosselaar's Mom" be satisfied.

Here we are: Mark-Paul, his mom, and me. I am pretty sure this picture was taken when Mark-Paul and his mom came to my home town for a visit. This might be the outfit that Mark-Paul wore when we went shopping in San Francisco. Kind of incognito so girls would not flock him at the mall. They did anyway -- even in that awesomeness of an outfit there was no stopping the ladies.

LOL! Man, that's an outfit for sure! He's a lot taller than I figured he'd be. We were going to get married, waaaay back when. I had everything planned out but for the telling him part.

You just have the coolest pictures to show your kids, Wendy. Thanks for sharing them with us. :)

Wendy, I was wondering if you ever met or got to know Neil Patrick Harris? He was big at the time with "Doogie Howser, M.D." and is now starring with Allyson Hannigan on "How I Met Your Mother".

TDM Wendy said...

Anon - I hung out with Neil a few times. Nice guy. He was good friends with a good friend of mine. I don't keep in touch with him now and I am not sure that he would even remember me.

I am Indonesian and just found out in Wikipedia that his mom is half Indonesian. So I googled and found the pic in your website ;)
He is so famous in Indonesia from his tv serie-Saved by the Bell but it is just surprising now to find out he has actually Asian blood..I used to watch Saved by the Bell also because of him! used to read all the American teenage magazines about him, but they never mentioned his mom is half Indonesian. After I saw his mom pic, now it is not surprising at all, his mom looks very Indonesian ;)

TDM Wendy said...

Anon,
And he speaks Dutch!

Katherine said...

LOL, yup I googled Mark Paul Gosselaar Mom. I was just so surprised to learn his Mom was Indonesian. His look is so Northern Euro. Thanks for your post.

I admit it, I got here because I Googled his mom! Ha! It was the Indonesian thing that got me. I have several friends who have just one Asian parent, and I can never tell. I was curious to see what she looked like. And now I know! ;)

in answer to your question...
I am an Asian American girl who was adopted by a Caucasian family, so I've always identified more with Caucasian people and have only ever dated Caucasian men as opposed to Asian men, and when I heard on an interview that Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Zach Morris has Asian genes I was curious to know what his mother looked like. It just blew me away that the quintessential blond all American pretty boy was mixed! I just enjoy it when mixed people are successful because most likely my children will be mixed and my best friend is mixed.
Anyways just thought I would explain the complex and possibly ridiculous reasoning behind looking up Mark-Paul Gosselaar' mom or maybe people are just curious who mothered such a beautiful person?

TDM Wendy said...

Taylor. That makes sense! Thanks for sharing.

His mom is Filipino. Last time I read it said that his mom was Indonesian so I did a quick Google check to make sure and it led me here lol.

Loki said...

You slut. Why can't you date Asian men exclusively? Dating dese white boys!!!! Noooooooooooooo!!!!

mick said...

She's half indonesian and half dutch. Read about gregor mendel and you'll know why he looks purely european.

Lilia Murphy said...

Growing up I thought he was gorgeous. He still is. Also, I knew that he wasn't full "white". So that's when I googled his parents and found out she's half Indonesian. It's funny because my kids are 75% white and 25% Asian. So hopefully they'll be as cute as him when they get older lol.
