OK, what the hell is wrong with Lacey Gerenson?


by Anonymousreply 5908/18/2013

Drunk. And unfunny. Now you know why she never landed another role.

You mean Alecia (Lecy) Goranson?

by Anonymousreply 208/14/2012

Awkward. Both kids actually look pretty good as grownups though.

by Anonymousreply 308/14/2012

Right now she's pissed you can't spell her name right.

by Anonymousreply 408/14/2012

is she on something?

by Anonymousreply 508/14/2012

she's gay I'm pretty sure. She did get other roles, in feature films, too. Boys Don't Cry, Sex & the City, lots of others.

Remember the episode where Becky and her friend get bombed?

by Anonymousreply 808/14/2012

R8, those girls did a really good job at acting drunk, especially "Dana," but Lecy really got the hangover downpat. I felt so bad for her the next day 'cause I know all too well what that's like.

Michael Fishman grew up to be unexpectedly very handsome.

by Anonymousreply 1008/14/2012

They looked fine. They're not comedians, nor do they probably have much experience in a comedy roast situation like this. Sometimes it's hit or mis. They weren't bad, but a big part of comedy is delivery. They need to work on their delivery and timing a bit.

By the way, where was Sara Gilbert?

by Anonymousreply 1108/14/2012

R9 - agreed.

by Anonymousreply 1208/14/2012

Fishman did turn out decent looking. He was a horrible actor as a kid.

by Anonymousreply 1308/14/2012

She's white trash...and on some sort of meds. I used to jerk around like that too...when I was hooked on meth and benzos.

She did something similar on the Roseanne reunion on Larry King's show. Smirked and mocked Larry like a bratty teenager might do to a substitute teacher. Larry's a dolt, of course, but it was strange to see this thirtyish woman behaving like a snotty child.

In that first picture of Fishman in R15's link, he looks sorta Robert Blake crazy.

by Anonymousreply 1708/14/2012

She looks drunkardly.

by Anonymousreply 1808/14/2012

She had a really weird blog for a while a when she was living in Billyburg and working at a flower shop.

by Anonymousreply 1908/14/2012

She's sitting at the grown-ups table now so she feels she has to swear.

by Anonymousreply 2008/14/2012

OK, I thought she was going to be extremely fat or unrecognizable due to plastic surgery, but she looks normal. She does act jittery, but no big deal .

by Anonymousreply 2108/14/2012

She pronounces her name Lee-Cee. They fired her for banging one of the writers? Lecey is still friendly with Roseanne?

by Anonymousreply 2208/14/2012

As i recall, Lecy was replaced by Sarah Chalke and then came back for the final season.

by Anonymousreply 2308/14/2012

Lecey left at the start of the 5th season (1992-1993) to attend college. They sent her off by having her and Mark elope and move to Minneapolis so he could take a job there. Becky was gone for the rest of the season. Sarah Chalke wasn't brought in to replace her until Season 6 (1993-1994); Mark returned with her, even dumber. Chalke stayed through Season 7 (1994-1995), and then in Season 8 (1995-1996), Lecey returned. Chalke came back in the latter half of the season to do some episodes that Lecey was unable to do (like the Disney World two-parter), then Chalke took over again full-time for the final Season 9 (1996-1997).

BTW: I love the "Patty Duke Show" spoof they did when Lecey returned in Season 8. The end credits had Lecey and Chalke spoofing the "Identical Cousins" intro.

Becky #2 was waaaaaay better, waaaaaay prettier....

by Anonymousreply 2608/14/2012

waaay too unlikely as the spawn of Dan and Roseanne.

by Anonymousreply 2708/14/2012

Go and ask how she reconciles her celebrated role playing a cat with her signature song about a bird, "Meadowlark." Don't let her conduct the class until she takes sides as either a cat person or bird lover, then mock her choice. Then make meowing noises and ask to stroke her kitty while whistling "Memory."

by Anonymousreply 2808/14/2012

I loved Lecy as Becky.She had a really expressive face and the coolest hair.

by Anonymousreply 2908/14/2012

I strongly disagree, R26. Lecey was the better actress, and not bad-looking I should add. But more importantly, she fit in with that family dynamic. Becky #1 could hold her own against Darlene and Roseanne, was intelligent, and had more chemistry with "Mark." When Chalke took over, she turned Becky into a dumb blonde bimbo whose only shtick seemed to be to whine about something with hands on hips, and then storm out: Chalke also looked out of place in that family; she looked like she belonged with a WASPy family, instead. And though she and Glenn Quinn complemented each other physically, they seemed to be lacking in chemistry.

by Anonymousreply 3008/14/2012

Poor Glenn Quinn, he was so cute and he was also a decent actor. He became a junkie and died of an overdose some years ago.

by Anonymousreply 3108/14/2012

Sarah Chalke was good in Scrubs and ok in HIMYM, but she was not Lecy.

by Anonymousreply 3208/14/2012

Sarah C. Is a successful tv actor.

Lacey, not so much.

why was courtney love with DJ? i don't get it.

What does "OK" stand for? I don't understand.

by Anonymousreply 3608/14/2012

R33, but that doesn't change the fact that Chalke sucked as Becky. Watch her episodes. She's horrid and unwatchable. I almost never watch after Season 5.

by Anonymousreply 3708/14/2012

R37 when you say she "sucked" do you mean that she sucked her teeth as though she had a nervous tic?

by Anonymousreply 3808/14/2012

I always thought that about Sarah Chalke. She was way too well bred to be a Connor.

by Anonymousreply 3908/14/2012

That guy who killed all those guys in Colorado needs to get her lawyer. I guess you can kill your kid and it's OK but if you're actually mentally ill and kill, it's to the death chair

Goranson's Becky was the most realistic portrayal of a teenager ever put on television. She did a phenomenal job.

by Anonymousreply 4108/15/2012

Agree, the whole cast was superb and then all the featured big name actors, like Shelley Winters, Estelle Parsons, Sandra Bernhard. But Mackenzie Phillips as Julie on "One Day at a Time was also a good t.v. teen portrayal.

by Anonymousreply 4208/15/2012

I agree, the writing in the early seasons when Becky and Darlene were teenagers was spot on.

by Anonymousreply 4308/15/2012

"But Mackenzie Phillips as Julie on "One Day at a Time was also a good t.v. teen portrayal."

Maybe a little over the top, R42

by Anonymousreply 4408/15/2012

she was very realistic and a good actress, Mackenzie has talent and she looks fab these days.

Is that what happens when you smoke meth and chug cough syrup simultaneously?

by Anonymousreply 4608/15/2012

It was just last year when someone found her reading tarot cards in a shop for a living.

She's either a lesbian or a gypsy.

by Anonymousreply 4708/15/2012

I think she is a gay chick into alternative healing. I'm quite serious.

She's probably at Michfest right now.

by Anonymousreply 4808/15/2012

I always thought Lecy was mentally retarded. A great actress, but still mentally retarded.

DJ started breeding barely out of his teens, complete with pregnant belly pics with his brood mare.

R51 - good question.

by Anonymousreply 5208/16/2012

Mackenzie was a realistic teen, with acne, a drug problem and real anger. She's also good in George Lucas' "American Graffiti" currently on ThisTV.

by Anonymousreply 5308/16/2012

Sara couldn't be bothered to come up off of Linda Perry's pussy long enough to show some gratitude to Roseanne for giving her a career.

Remember when she danced wildly in her bedroom to one of those Black Box 90s club songs?

by Anonymousreply 5608/17/2012

In a recent interview, Lecy Goranson said she never tuned into the show to see Sarah Chalke playing Becky and never even bothered to watch the show's finale. I find that really odd. I mean, I get that for some people a job is just a job and maybe she never gave "Roseanne" two thoughts when she wasn't on set. That's fine. But it surprises that she really cared so little. Also, if she really didn't care about any of it, then why is she still agreeing to interviews about the show 15 years later?

by Anonymousreply 5708/18/2013

I heard the rumor she's a lesbian, but she's so flaky bordering on "off", I'm hoping they're just confusing her with Sara. If she is gay, she's self hating:

[quote]Goranson appeared on Larry King with the cast of Roseanne and objected to episodes that focused on homosexuality. Goranson referred to herself as "a good Christian."
