By: Allison Petkoff

There is no question that the TV show “Lizzie McGuire” was a prominent TV show for the kids born in the 90’s. We had Lizzie, portrayed by the famous Hilary Duff, her friend Gordo, who remained constant throughout the series, but all true fans remember Miranda, the best friend of the main character. Miranda missed a few of the last episodes and did not appear in “The Lizzie McGuire Movie.” Many wonder what happened to Miranda since her golden days with Lizzie McGuire.

Recently, a “Lizzie McGuire” reunion went down and fans were overjoyed. The cast hadn’t seen each other in 14 years. The Huffington Post took this time to ask Miranda, whose real name is actually Lalaine, what she had been up to.

According to the Huffington Post, Lalaine has been holding down a simple job to pay the bills. She found it difficult to be a child star and constantly running somewhere, so she is happy to slow down. Lalaine did admit that during her time off the radar she had some “dark years” and even got arrested. Lalaine admitted that she simply needed to turn her perspective around. She joined a band called Vanity Theft for a brief period of time and has been trying to make peace with herself. According to Huffington Post, when asked about a “Lizzie McGuire” reunion, she admitted that she was “curious” about it. Fortunately, there is some “curious” hope for all of the fans out there.
