Topanga Arrested!

Danielle Fishel, best known for her role as Boy Meets World hottie Topanga, was arrested Thursday morning for a drunken driving warrant in Newport Beach, Calif.

According to the Associated Press, Fishel was arrested in a car she was in Thursday just before 5 a.m. by Newport Beach Sgt. James Rocker.

FYI: Fishel, now 26, used to date former N’Sync member Lance Bass in 1999. She was 18, he was 20. Fishel shared on The Tyra Banks Show that she was heavily invested in the relationship, commenting that she was “so in love” with Lance. However, Bass ended the relationship a year later, after coming to terms with his sexuality.

Danielle is now a special correspondent for the Tyra Banks Show. I think she did this for attention.

Wow, Im disappointed in her. What’s happening with all these celebs??!

I think you’ll hear about a lot more like this because drinking is so acceptable. How many pictures do you see on the web of people with three or four drink bottles surrounding them.

I really believe people don’t even know or think of the fact that they are impaired. They just view it as a buzz

I must admit I was a Boy Meets World fan. She did a good job on that show.

Danielle Fugel was pretty much known for her role as Topanfugal and that’s just about it.

Boys Meets World

Can someone call Jenny Craig for her?
And honey you can’t drink you problems away……………
Because all i think you want for christmas is attention!

you can tell the REAL celebs are on holiday. Who is this?

lol wow all thiese clebs drinking and driving its pretty funny lol.

stinks for her! but it’s her fault she was drunk driving, but it stinks for her that she was dating a gay guy all along!

LOL. You know you’ve done something wrong when you’ve turned a man gay!

a thought lance bass was gay…?

i wanna know wuts up with nickoloden and disney stars always getting in trouble

Britney, Justin, Jamie Lynn, Lindsey, Vanessa, Shia, and now her? is it just that Disney shelters these kids and then they wanna go out and party and get drunk and then strip down i mean seriously,,


Wow right here in my own county and everything.

??? Why is it always the Disney kids? I mean Britney, Lindsey, and now her… Sad. I wonder if being a Disney kid, being forced to be good, then… being free, no longer forced to be good, goes to their head… hopefully she’s the last……

Slow day when Topangfuga is still on top of the site.

She’s human. She made a mistake. People make mistakes… thats what we do, we make mistakes and hopefully learn from them. Just because she’s an actress doesnt mean she’s perfect.

“Let Him who is without sin cast the first stone…”
-Jesus Christ

a little ahead of ourselves aren’t we?


Who? Musta’ been a slow news day.

i feel sorry for her that she dated lance bass!
who is she anyways?!?!

she reminds me of a pig, i dont know why!

I saw a recent piece on her on, and she was shopping for a bikini. She had lost a ton of weight. You should update that pic.

whoaa the last time I saw her she was alright.
now drunk and a lil fat

Lets put your pic up and have these wolves go to town on you… Chances are you aren’t the cream of the crop… home on a Saturday night playing with your computer….

she wasn’t really a “Disney kid” ..BMW was originally on ABC.

Has been right there. But I did love Boy Meets World.

what a dumby. she goes years without work in the entertainment industry then tyra gives her a break and she gets arrested for drunk driving.. what a ditz.
She was working at the Bloomingdales@Fashion Island in Cali before Tyra hooked her up with work.. guess she’s headed back there. That is if she ever quit.
It is kinda sad, she was such a cute kid and seemed like a really sweet girl. Get it together Danielle!

gosh i loved that show, though i think thats all she was known for.

wow im so dissapointed in her.
she used to be soo good
i loved her in boy meets world.
geez thats just… wow
oh well sucks for disney and nick xD

Anyone see the tyra banks show about teenage binge drinking and she talks about not even liking alcohol. Oh topanga

oh yeah, now i remember her. it was that show with fred savages stupid brother

shes not exactly famous jared

She’s lame. She should go to jail just like Kiefer Sutherland.


I don’t think you can blame the company because there are many that perform on these shows with no problems. Just like not all college students find keg parties fun. I think some people are just attracted to these things.

I also still say that when it comes to drinking many people downplay it so a lot of people think it is okay to overindulge and really don’t think of the consequences.

Hysterical that they have to now get attention thru their children.

Let’s review:
Beowulf bit it.
Mighty Heart? Gah.
Assassination of Jesse James and The Longest Title in the Free World? Tank.

Couldn’t happen to a nicer, more pap-friendly couple. I bet they have all the paps on speed dial in every city. And of course, there’s Angelina in her big Jackie O shades, wearing black once again. I think she likes it b’c it makes her more pale and skinny– you know, like the skeleton she is. Her next movie part is of Skeletor, did you hear? The producers thought it’d be easy for her to play b’c she wouldn’t need any makeup.

Can you tell I hate these two, or am I being too subtle?
