Mayim Bialik talks show reunions and the fate of Blossom and Vinnie

By Clare Douglas

If you've ever wondered if the character of Blossom found happiness with her on-again-off-again flame Vinnie Bonitardi, we have your answer. To learn more about the couple's fate we went straight to the source. "I think she may have ended up with someone different," says Mayim Bialik, who played the iconic teen for five years in the 1990s. "Not that Vinnie wasn’t great ... I [just] think Blossom may have found a graduate student to live happily ever after with."

The actress also dished up some more unfortunate news, espeically for fans hoping a Blossom reunion was in the works. "I think Chuck Lorre would have a few things to say about that! The Big Bang Theory takes up the majority of my time year-round, so I don’t think that’s in the cards at the moment." Still, the 41-year-old actress has nothing but fond memories of the series that catapulted her into super stardom. "I remember filming the pilot. It was such an exciting time and I can almost remember the smell of the stage."

The Russo family may not be reuniting anytime soon, but when asked about reprising her role as Jodi Funkhouser on the highly-anticipated ninth season of Curb Your Enthusiasm this fall, Mayim didn't completely shut down the idea. "As of now, no…" Here's hoping Larry David is working on it!

It's been 27 years since Blossom debuted, and since then Mayim has received a PhD in Neuroscience from UCLA, become a mother to two beautiful sons and is now part of TV's most-watched comedy. The success of The Big Bang Theory has further given the star a platform to raise awareness for causes close to her heart, including environmentalism. Mayim's passion for the planet is what made her the perfect person to front SodaStream's latest campaign. "I don’t do a lot of commercials, but I don’t just see this as a commercial It’s a statement about the environment as well," the actress tells Hello!

In the new commercial, Mayim plays a museum tour guide who teaches children about the pitfalls of using plastic bottles. "As a species, we have evolved so much, but much as we know plastic bottles pollute our environment and kill marine life, we continue to use them. Single-use plastic bottles should be a thing of the past and belong in a museum!" she explains. Finally, one of the most important things she hopes all children learn, including her own is that when it comes to taking care of the earth, "every action counts."
