Trina McGee of ‘Boy Meets World’ looks dramatically different

Now that news is buzzing that a popular ’90s comedy is blasting back onto TV screens, one of the show’s stars is being singled out. Earlier this week the Disney Channel confirmed that it is developing a spin-off of ABC’s “Boy Meets World” featuring several of the original cast members. Centered on Corey (Ben Savage) and Topanga (Danielle Fishel), the program will follow the life of their young daughter, Riley, with the working title “Girl Meets World.”

“I’m going to be a father! Well, on TV at least,” Ben Savage tweeted this week about the news.

Since the announcement, social media has been abuzz with fans searching for other cast members to inquire about. One such cast member fans dug up online is actress Trina McGee, who played the only black lead on the show, Angela. Angela was the girlfriend of Corey Matthew’s best friend, Shawn, and viewers watched the couple struggle to stay together amid the normal strains of teen dating. Since then, however, McGee’s been virtually absent in the world of acting sans a few minor roles including one in the film ‘Friday After Next.’

Now married and going by Trina Collette, the celeb looks surprisingly different and as many have noted, a few shades lighter in skintone. After a gossip rag noted that the star looked like a “white woman” McGee posted the message below to one of her fans.

No word yet on whether McGee will be added to the “Girl Meets World” cast.

    Um, yeah, that’s not her. She goes by Trina McGee-Davis, not Trina Collette.

    THIS GIRL DOES NOT LOOK THE LEASE BIT WHITE, NOT AT ALL, NOT EVEN CLOSE. I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT YOU MORONS ARE EVEN TALKING ABOUT WITH THIS GIRL. SHE ISN’T OR HASN’T DONE ANYTHING THAT HALF THE CHICKS IN HOLLYWEIRD HAVEN’T DONE TO THEMSELVES TOO. SHE DOES NOT LOOK LIKE A WHITE WOMAN AT ALL, NOT EVEN CLOSE. YOU OBVIOUSLY NEED GLASSES. THE ONLY THING SHE DID WAS DYE HER HAIR, PUT ON A LITTLE MAKE-UP, GOT RID OF THE HORRIBLE BAGS UNDER HER EYES (I WOULD TOO), AND MAYBE A TOUCH OF SOME OTHER KIND OF COSMETIC WORK HERE AND THERE, BUT SHE DIDN’T DOING ANYTHING THAT DRASTIC OR SERIOUSLY AT ALL LIKE I’VE SEEN SO MANY OF THEM DO, AND COME OUT LOOKING LIKE FRANKENSTIENS, FOR GOD’S SAKE!! SCARYYYYYYYYY!!!

    IN FACT, I THINK WHATEVER SHE DID WAS A BIG IMPROVEMENT IF YOU ASK ME. I THINK SHE LOOKS PRETTY GOOD, WITH OR WITHOUT BLOND HAIR. WHY AREN’T YA’ALL TARGETING ALL THE OTHER FRAUDS WHO DO THE VERY SAME THING THAT YOU ARE ACCUSING HER OF?

    I’VE SEE ALOT OF FAKE GIRLS IN L.A. DYING THEIR HAIR, BROWS, SKIN, ETC., TRYING TO CHANGE THEMSELVES INTO WHITE WOMEN. SO WHY ARE YOU JUST DISCRIMINANTLY GOING AFTER THIS GIRL AND NOT ALL THE REST OF THEM?? AND THERE ARE MANY OF THEM TOO WHO ARE DOING JUST WHAT SHE DID AND EVEN WORSE, PEOPLE LIKE EVE, RHIANNA, SCARY SPICE, NIKI MAJ, MARIAH, ETTA JAMES, HALLE, VIVICA, VANESSA, CHER, AGUILERA, TINA TURNER, JESSICA SIMPSON, LITTLE KIM, CARRIE UNDERWOOD, BEYONCA, BRITTANY SPEARS, PAMELA ANDERSON, BRITTANY MURPHY, AND ALL THE BIRACIAL GIRLS IN L.A. TRYING TO MAKE THEMSELVES WHITE. IF YOU’RE GONNA GO AFTER ONE, THEN GO AFTER ALL OF THEM FOR PRETENDING TO BE WHITE. YOU GOT A LOT OF NERVE JUST SINGLING HER OUT, AND PICKING ON HER AND HER ALONE. SHAME ON YOU!
