ALYSSA MILANO reveals how she survived the gut-wrenching fate of many child stars who plummeted from the heights to the gutter.
Alyssa, now 40, says she managed to escape “Kiddie Babylon” because of her talent.
Alyssa who grew upon TV beginning with Who’s The Boss, told lad mag Maxim how she survived.
“I hope it’s talent,” the newly minted Mistresses star admitted.
“That was an era when TV child actors just didn’t work after their show was over.
“I think Christina Applegate and I are the only two who maintained some sort of career path past the shows that launched us.”
Alyssa, who welcomed her first child in 2011 with her CAA agent husband David Bugliari thinks that the current crop of child star "hot messes" were doomed from the start.
“I have a great family, and I look at a lot of these kids who struggle in the industry and think they’d have struggled no matter what they did.”
