You know her, you love her, hell at this point she's almost a member of your family!  She's Kaley Cuoco and she plays Penny on TV's The Big Bang Theory!

Kaley first came to our attention when she played Bridget, one of the late John Ritter's daughters on the sitcom Eight Simple Rules. She later played Billie Jenkins during the final season of the supernatural show Charmed. But it was in 2007 when the Big Bang Theory hit the air that this classic "girl next door" warmed our hearts and tickled our funny bone.

Kaley grew up in California where she still resides, she enjoys playing tennis and riding horses.  A few years back you may remember that she didn't appear on a few episodes of The Big Bang Theory, and the reason was she had to recover from a horse riding accident.  Kaley was thrown from a horse and when she landed, the then upset horse stomped on her leg breaking a bone, which happened to be sticking out the side of her leg.  Ouch!  Looking at Kaley now we can't help but notice that she has recovered beautifully!

For a couple of years Kaley dated her Big Bang co-star Johnny Galeck, who plays Leonard on the show, they broke up in real life a couple of years ago.  Recently we've seen more of her as she now appears as a spokesperson for Toyota.  Seeing more of Kaley?  Now who could argue with that?
