DishDiva: Tiffani, welcome to MSN Live! It's great to meet you!

Tiffani Thiessen: Hey! How are you guys?! Thanks for coming online!!

DishDiva: Congratulations on your new film, "The Ladies Man." Are you excited about opening day?

Tiffani Thiessen: I'm a little nervous, but I have a feeling it will do really well. And the premiere was great! We had a good time!

DishDiva: We have thousands of questions from your fans, Tiffani, so let's get started!

DishDiva: Adverse_Four Asks: I expect working with Tim Meadows must have been so much fun. Was it?

Tiffani Thiessen: Yes! It was a blast! Being that he's one of the funniest comedians I've worked with so far. I've never laughed so hard!

DishDiva: babewatch says: Tell me about Honey, your character.

Tiffani Thiessen: I play Will Farrell's wife, Honey Delune, she's not satisfied in her marriage, if you know what I mean (wink) and she seeks out Leon Phelps to seeks out to find those things she's not getting in her marriage.

DishDiva: boardgrl says: What upcoming movies, other than the ladies man, she is going to do?

Tiffani Thiessen: I have another movie, "Shreek; I know what you did last Friday the 13th."

Tiffani Thiessen: And I'm also have a comedy in development.

DishDiva: We need to see you back on TV!

Tiffani Thiessen: (laugh) Thank you! I need to be back on TV.

DishDiva: pearl says: What is better? Films or TV for you?

Tiffani Thiessen: They are so completely different. I like them both for different reasons. TV is more consistent and movies have more variety.

DishDiva: spicejo1 Asks: How did it come about that you did the vertical horizon video?

Tiffani Thiessen: Actually I was asked to do the video. Funny enough I was so taken back because their CD was in my car, they are one of my favorite bands. It was so much fun!

DishDiva: You were great in She Fought Alone. Was this the hardest role for you?

Tiffani Thiessen: Actually I have to say it was one of the hardest roles I've ever had to do. Emotionally, physically, I was away from home for a month and we filmed in Texas and I'm allergic to mesquitos and it was like crazy mesquito season there. I love the way the film turned out, but it was a really hard shoot for me.

DishDiva: tcg2001 Asks: How do you like the idea of chatrooms as a way of interacting with your fans

Tiffani Thiessen: I love it! This is my second time doing this and I think it's amazing how we can do this so easily!

DishDiva: SOCCERROCKS7 Asks: HOW DID YOU GET THIS ROLE?

Tiffani Thiessen: The normal process.. I auditioned for it, I went up for it once and was called a few days later and left a few weeks later to shoot it.

DishDiva: coolhand says: Tiffani, was there a really funny off camera moment you can remember and what did you keep from the set?

Tiffani Thiessen: Oh wow! I just remember all my scenes were shot at night and I remember drinking as much coffee to keep myself up. Everyone was doing the same thing, everyone was a little... not uptight, but crazy funny! The first time I was in a scene with a guy that had less clothes on then me. (laugh!)

DishDiva: dodgeowner Asks: hello, i think you ae one of the most beatiful women in the business, how do you look so good all the time. how do you get that tiffani GLOW?

Tiffani Thiessen: (laugh) A few things. First off, I'm in love, that's one of the reasons. Secondly, I try and eat as healthy as possible. And also I'm into Pilates which is great!

DishDiva: Is Pilates hard?

Tiffani Thiessen: It's not that it's hard, it's just completely different. Most people that do it were dancers, it's just a lot of stretching and you get better at it every time.

DishDiva: You definitely have that in love glow, can you tell us who you are in love with?

Tiffani Thiessen: I met him on 2 Guys and a Girl, Richard Ruccolo.

DishDiva: He's adorable! You're lucky and so is he!

DishDiva: msft1868 Asks: What was it like working for Aaron Spelling?

Tiffani Thiessen: He's an amazing man. He's extremely intellegent and such a saavy business man. It was great because you think of him as one of the biggest producers, but he was so attainable and I could go to him with any question or problem or whatever.

DishDiva: goodgirl says: Tiffani, how were the Olympics? I hear you went.

Tiffani Thiessen: Yes! I just got back from Australia, one of the most amazing experience I've ever had. Sidney is one of the most beautiful cities and Australians are some of the nicest people!

DishDiva: Did you have a favorite event?

Tiffani Thiessen: I missed the gymnastics, so we ended up watching diving, and saw the Gold Medal Dream Team win and went to the closing ceremonies, which was really great!

DishDiva: moonsauce says: Hi Tiffani! You're great at comedy and drama both. Do you enjoy one more than the other?

Tiffani Thiessen: Wow! No, it's kind of the same thing with TV and film. I enjoy both! I think they're both difficult and rewarding in different ways and I would like to keep up with both sides to keep it going. I'm enjoying doing comedy which is what I'm mostly doing these days.

DishDiva: DaneDieter Asks: Last episodes of 90210 are now showing in Denmark, do you realize how many fans you have outside of the US?

Tiffani Thiessen: I do to a certain degree, but it came back up when I went to Australia because they are showing new episodes there. It's kind of quiet here in the states, so it was interesting to see that down there. I know it's shown in a lot of places all over.

DishDiva: Guest_MLOC64 Asks: Do you have your own website and if so what is the name of it?

Tiffani Thiessen: It's acually on Celebsites.com I don't know if it's up and running right now, if it isn't, it will be up very soon.

DishDiva: BootlessJester7 says: Tiffani, what do you do at the end of a long hard day?

Tiffani Thiessen: I usually come home and spend time laying around the house if I'm not running errends that I can't do during the day. I spend time with Rich, and my dog Clyde and my cats Sadie and Savanna.

DishDiva: darkhair_1 says: Tiffani I just wanted to say that you are one hot babe! I love your work. Your an excellent actress. Was Ladies man a fun and easy part to learn?

Tiffani Thiessen: It was definitely pretty easy. It was fun being around really funny people. The hardest part for me was being in lingerie, it was hard being in front of people.

DishDiva: But you looked damn good!

DishDiva: Guest_Beckett Asks: Do you regret anything about being in showbusiness most of your life?

Tiffani Thiessen: No, actually I'm very grateful for what I do and have obtained, there's nothing I would change. Not to say there weren't times in my life I'd say "I can't do this anymore." But I love what I do.

DishDiva: Any comments on the election?

Tiffani Thiessen: As much as I can be, I've been really busy. I've watched some of it.

DishDiva: fab_Tiffanifan says: Do you know which magazines you are currently in?

Tiffani Thiessen: I'm in Brentwood magazine (in LA), Entertainment Weekly (Internet Magazine), Movieline, US Weekly.

DishDiva: prettyplease says: Tiffani, are you dressing up for Halloween? Going anywhere?

Tiffani Thiessen: I don't know if I'm dressing up in costume, but I'll definitely have a fun evening with my friends. Not too crazy, pretty quiet.

DishDiva: Guest_c Asks: I was wondering if your last name, is originally from Denmark?

Tiffani Thiessen: From what I hear it's actually German, but biologically it's not my real last name. It was the name my father was given after he was adopted, he had his real mother.

Tiffani Thiessen: And his father adopted him.

DishDiva: Vacancy_in_NY says: Hi Tiffani! What drew you to the role of Honey DeLune? Do you share any qualities?

Tiffani Thiessen: The only quality we share is we definitely look alike. (laugh) That's about it! I was drawn to the movie and working with Tim Meadows and Will Ferrell, not the character.

DishDiva: TV_critic12 says: Do you have a favorite scene in "The Ladies Man"?

Tiffani Thiessen: ummm, my favorite scene... let's see.. I'd have to say the whole beginning sequence of the movie, it's really funny! And the way it was directed! It's really great! You'll have to go see it! It's very funny!

DishDiva: Later, catch a clip of "The Ladies Man" starring Tiffani Thiessen at http://www.windowsmedia.com

DishDiva: roxburybro Asks: Do you have some type of Huge home library of all the times you've been on T.V.?

Tiffani Thiessen: To a certain degree, yes. I have all the episodes of "Saved by the Bell" in a closet and and I have my favorite episodes of "90210" but not all of them. Definitely a lot of video cassettes around.

DishDiva: I_Furcatus Asks: I remember reading that you owned two dogs, Bonnie and Clyde, what became of Bonnie?

Tiffani Thiessen: Bonnie, my girl dog, Clyde's sister, passed away 2 years ago of cancer.

Tiffani Thiessen: I definitely know she's in a better place and I know she's doing much better now.
