Alyssa Milano doesn’t think every child actor is bound to get in trouble with the law.
The 40-year-old actress appeared on screens as a preteen in the 1980s sitcom “Who’s The Boss,” and thinks her genuine gift of being an actress has kept her from going off the rails.
“I hope it’s talent,” she told Maxim magazine. “That was an era when TV child actors just didn’t work after their show was over.”
The “Mistresses” star believes that only certain people have been able to hold on to regular jobs while maintaining their wholesome image.
She counts “Married With Children’s” Christina Applegate, 41, as another actress who has done well out of starting work early in life.
“I think Christina Applegate and I are the only two who maintained some sort of career path past the shows that launched us,” she confessed.
Milano welcomed her first child with her CAA agent husband David Bugliari in 2011.
She thinks that troubled stars like Lindsay Lohan and Amanda Bynes didn’t have much chance of have a healthy career and personal life to begin with.
“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,” she admitted.
Alyssa Milano may be showing us all kinds of sexiness lately, but her husband David Bugliari isn’t worried one bit.
“He’s very supportive,” Milano told me just about a month ago at the Billboard Music Awards. “He’s [a talent] agent, so he’s used to this crazy business.”
Milano appears braless underneath a flannel shirt while wearing a pair of shorter-than-short shorts on the cover of Maxim magazine’s July issue.
The 40-year-old mom of one not only sizzles there, but she’s also steaming up television with her provacotive new prime-time soap, Mistresses.
“We have such a solid relationship,” Milano said of her marriage. “Nothing could sway that.”
The former Charmed star and the Creative Artists Agency agent married almost four years ago at his family’s estate in New Jersey. Milano wore a Vera Wang gown. Guests included Bugliari’s client Bradley Cooper.
The couple had been dating for more than a year when Bugliari popped the question.
Milano gave birth to their first their first baby, son Milo, 10 months ago. “Two days ago, he said, ‘I love you, mama,'” she said at the Billboards. “I died. I was crying. I was such a mess.”
And look for more little ones sooner than later. “I’ve had such a great time being pregnant that you’re probably going to see me more pregnant than not in the next few years because I’m really digging it,” Milano told me back when she was still preggers in May 2011.
Mistresses premiered on June 3. “It’s Disney/ABC so it’s not too naked. Mickey wouldn’t approve,” Milano said. “But it is saucy, for sure.”
She is one busy lady. It was announced earlier this month that she was replacing Carolyn Murphy as the new host of Project Runway All Stars. The latest round of the fashion competition show is expected to premiere in the fall with returning judges Isaac Mizrahi and Georgina Chapman.
Here’s hoping Milano does double duty as a model during a lingerie challenge.

The quality on most are unfortunately pretty bad, but they’re still worth a glance or two – Alyssa looks gorgeous!

Kudos to some of our lovely followers over on twitter for the heads up on this article!
Currently starring in the ABC television series Mistresses, hosting Project Runway All-Stars, and designing for TOUCH, her own clothing and jewelry line, Alyssa Milano still makes time to help her friends—the two- and four-legged kind.
Being an ambassador for Best Friends Animal Society, a leading animal-welfare nonprofit, is one of her favorite roles. “I believe we should extend our care and concern to all living creatures with whom we share this planet,” she told PARADE. “Best Friends Animal Society’s vision of a better world through kindness to animals resonates strongly with me. It is inclusive and active and always adds measurably to the goodness in the world.”
Animals have always been an important part of her life. “They give me a window into a world that is different from our own, but every bit as meaningful,” she says. “The fact that millions of loving, homeless pets die in shelters is a national disgrace. Best Friends’ mission, to bring about a time when there are no more homeless pets, a time when animals are not dying in shelters for the simple lack of a home, is something I can really get behind.”
When Milano was growing up in Brooklyn, NY, dogs were an important part of her family. “I can’t imagine what life would be like without animals,” she says. “They bring me happiness and a sense of calm and peace.”
She currently has four dogs: Lucy, Gibson, Dodger, and Quixi; 10 horses: Picaflo, Petey, Sarafina, Nostalgia, Peace, Echo, Cisco, Luna, Maestro, and Harmonia; two chickens; and a bunny. “Lucy and Gibson are rescues,” she says. “Lucy was rescued from a yard where she was tied up.”
Her son, Milo, who is almost two years old, also shares her love of animals. “Our dog, Dodger, and Milo are great friends,” she says.
When she brought Milo home from the hospital, she and her husband, David Bugliari, hired a dog trainer to help their dogs get used to and adjust to Milo. It was smart planning, and now everyone gets along.
She also enjoys being around animals at work. “My first job was the play Annie,” she says “There was a big beautiful shelter dog that was in our production. We had a cat on Charmed for a while. I love working with animals. It makes being on the set feel more homey.”
In addition to helping Best Friends, Alyssa serves as an ambassador for UNICEF and is the founding ambassador for the Global Network.
