"Roseanne's" Original Becky: Misfortune Teller

7/25/2008 3:29 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Once upon a time Alicia Goranson's future seemed bright, playing the original Becky Conner on "Roseanne." That was over eleven years ago.

Alicia, 34, resurfaced last week at Gowanus Yacht Club in Brooklyn -- working! Goranson was reading tarot cards and telling patrons lies their fortunes for money.

Somewhere on the "Scrubs" set, Sarah Chalke is laughing.

BTW: Her name is Lecy, not Alicia!

Alicia Linda Goranson (born June 22, 1974, in Evanston, Illinois), better known as Lecy Goranson, is an American actress. At age 14, Alicia Linda Goranson was cast in the role of Becky Conner in the television sitcom Roseanne, which debuted to great success in 1988.

Since Roseanne, she had several small roles in films and has guest starred in both Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and Sex and the City. In her film roles as an adult, she is normally credited as Alicia rather than Lecy.

Get YOUR facts straight! Scrubs has been renewed for a final 13-episode run on ABC this fall. So yes, probably right about now, Sarah Chalke's sweet bod is probably on the set!

I doubt she was working for anything. She is paid off risiduals for the rest of her life. Give me a break. She left to go to college too, so really she is not working as a tarrot card reader. Geez. You all are pathetic.

All I can say is that I want a job where I can sit around all day, drink, tell people what they want to hear, and get paid.

This doesn't look like a job as much as just having some fun. She was GREAT as Becky!

Read her blog on Blogspot and you'll find a classy, interesting, intelligent young woman. Don't judge someone's whole life by some random pictures you see on a website. For a former child actor, Ms. Goranson seems like a pretty well adjusted member of society, but if she was a strung out, trash talking, sleazy criminal trying to hold on to some vestige of her former kid actor days (like so many of these dolts), you'd all be hating on her just as much.

Alicia, I am sure your fortune reads: LOOKING BRIGHT.

She was also awesome in Boys Don't Cry - anyone forget that? Award winning film and she was a supporting actress. Sarah Chalke was alright on that show - people were just used to Alicia (Lecy was her "kid" moniker). Sarah Chalke did some pretty good work on Lifetime movies too.

RE: That'sRight

She left the Roseanne show to go off to college...I saw that on True Hollywood Story and cosigning with everyone else, her name is Alicia, Lecy, as some stated, is her nickname...she IS a great actress though. Memba her in "Boys Don't Cry"?

This girl is from Evanston, Illinois originally. Back when I was in high school and she had just left the show I was at a coffee house in her home town and she came in while home I guess and was extremely rude and condscending to absolutley everyone. She clearly thought she was all that, and just actually wasn't anything special at all.
