Don’t you think Kaley totally sizzles on the March cover of Maxim?

Even though Kaley Cuoco currently stars as Penny on CBS’s  The Big Bang Theory, she’ll always hold  her memories from staring on 8 Simple Rules. with John Ritter, close to her heart.

John, Kaley’s former co-star on the show, died of a sudden heart attack in September 2003. But before he passed, John passed on some wonderful words of wisdom to Kaley — “He told me ‘Never go on Howard Stern,” the actress told Maxim magazine.

“When 8 Simple Rules came out, my character was this sexy 16-year-old vixen, and Howard used to talk about how my character was so hot. John would get so upset!”

Even though the sexy starlet didn’t mind the banter, still followed her TV dad’s wishes.  “If John Ritter had a problem, then I have to respect it.”

Kaley also says she tries to incoporate John’s upbeat attitude into her acting. “John never did a take the same way twice,” she said. “That’s why the audience was always peeing laughing. It was the most fun working with him, and I vowed that every set I was working on would be that fun.”
