When Rebecca was in first grade, she was so in love with Tori Spelling's character, Donna Martin, from "Beverly Hills 90210", that she started using "Donna Martin" as her middle name. Her teachers were exasperated when she would not respond, in roll call, to "Rebecca Horowitz". Unless addressed as "Rebecca Donna Martin Horowitz", she would stare ahead, stone-faced, silent, and refuse to be counted.

"What was I thinking?" she says with a laugh, acting as though this is a big breakthrough in her therapy. "Everyone knows Brenda Walsh was cooler!"

These days she responds to "Rebecca Kelly Ripa Horowitz-Klein" only.
