Then: Angela Watson was a child beauty pageant winner and model -- which made her a natural to play beauty-obsessed wannabe model Karen Foster on the long running TGI Friday sitcom ‘Step by Step.' So what happened to her? 

Now: Watson has only two minor acting credits since ‘Step by Step’ ended in 1998, but she has kept herself busy with other projects. The now-36-year old -- who sued her parents for defrauding her out of the $2.8 million she earned as a child actor -- founded an organization which provides accountants and lawyers to other young performers who have been similarly victimized. She has also served on the Screen Actors Guild National Board of Directors.
