Melissa Joan Hart wore a figure hugging, vibrant blue dress on her way to NBC Studios in New York City on Thursday. She's busy promoting her new ABC Family comedy "Melissa & Joey" opposite Joey Lawrence.

Last summer Melissa relocated to Connecticut and took a break from acting to care for her sick mother, who underwent an intense eight-hour surgery on a brain tumor.

We're glad the actress is working again. Her show is similar to "Who's The Boss?" with Joey playing Melissa's new male nanny, or "manny."

And although this isn't the case with all of Hollywood, there are a few we like to call Celebrity Serial Daters.

John Mayer uses his smooth rock star status to make the ladies fall for him, but seems to break their hearts just a...
