Even as a kid, I always found it so funny that Kerry was considered the "plain but smart" daughter when, in reality, Amy Davidson is clearly a stunning individual.
Since 8 Simple Rules wrapped, she's appeared in small roles on popular TV shows like c CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, House M. She and Kaley Cuoco still appear to be good friends, even going on vacation together back in July!
After three seasons, ABC cancelled 8 Simple Rules in May 2005 due to low ratings.
The third season (after Ritter's death) took a creative turn, revolving more around cousin C. (David Spade) and grandfather Jim (James Garner), than the immediate Hennessy family, more specifically not revolving around the raising of the Hennessy girls.
Kaley Cuoco, Amy Davidson and Martin Spanjers co-starred as their teenage kids; Bridget, Kerry and Rory Hennessy.
The series ran on ABC from September 17, 2002 to April 15, 2005.
The 54-year-old had been rushed to hospital straight from a rehearsal for 8 Simple Rules For Dating My Teenage Daughter.

While 8 Simple Rules was renewed for a second season and production had begun, Ritter's sudden death in September 2003 left the series in an uncertain position.The show’s production was shut down to give the cast and crew time to grieve and also to give the network and producers time to decide if and how they should proceed.
