Though they never actually dated in real life, Ben Savage was Fishel's first kiss – onscreen and off.She barely had time to register it was Baffleck (noticing first that he was just "incredibly, ruggedly, mind-bogglingly handsome") before he disappeared again — as caped crusaders are wont to do. Both were incredibly nervous ("I looked over at Ben, and he had gone completely white," she recalls).Though his brother thinks it's jealousy, Cory insists he doesn't want her hanging around.He continues his dismissive opinion on Topanga when they're paired up as husband and wife in Model Family and he considered his perfect wife as someone who let him win at video games and didn't care if his room was messy.Here are five of the best (and sometimes painful) moments from her new memoir, out this week. Fishel speed-talked her way through her first audition for the part of Topanga and was subsequently cast in a lesser role.Luckily, the girl who did get Topanga was unable to take notes from the director after their first rehearsal so they let her go and Fishel auditioned again, finally nabbing the part.

She is also known for being the host of Style Network's The Dish.
Fishel also appears in National Lampoon's Dorm Daze and its sequel, and was a spokeswoman for Nutrisystem.
She also had a small role on Harry and the Hendersons, playing Jessica. In 1993, at the age of 12, Fishel began her well-known role as Topanga Lawrence-Matthews on ABC's pilot series Boy Meets World.
Originally written as a small part, Topanga became a recurring role.
