But then the role of Carrie Heffernan came along so it all worked out in the end.
Carrie was svelte and trim often wearing clothing that showed her figure off while Doug, well.
Spoiler alert: the on-screen romance didn't last.
The series lasted a decade before it ended in 2007.
At the very bottom of this page, we included a marvelous collection of Lea Thompson nudes.
Some of Leah's characters have had a little hustler in them so we don't find it very hard to believe that Leah would play the part of a pool hustler and with her pretty looks, she would undoubtedly have poor saps lined up around the corner just to take a chance to have the wise-cracking, unashamed Leah beat them mercilessly and laugh all the way to the bank with their money.
It must have taken a lot of courage for Leah to stand up after all of these years and face the scrutiny that she has but she has never backed down and continues to stand strong.
