Although this former dancer started out as an adorable child actress, by the time she landed on Married... with Children rip-off Unhappily Ever After, she was well on her way to being an adult. Cox was the breakout star of the show, earning her stardom and a fiancé, co-star Bobcat Goldthwait. After Unhappily ended, the redhead earned her own eponymous sitcom, in which she played a Las Vegas showgirl. While the show was short-lived, it proved prophetic: Her next hit show was titled simply Las Vegas. Cox split from Goldthwait in 2005, and continuing her pattern of dating funnymen, married Jay Mohr in 2006.Nikki Cox Fast Facts:
