    Meredith Blake From "The Parent Trap" Is An Icon And You're Wrong If You Hated Her

    The modern day '90s Cruella.

    OK, so recently Instagram account @throwbackmachine tweeted out a meme about how much '90s kids hated Meredith Blake from The Parent Trap.

    And both Elaine Hendrix, the actor who played the iconic queen of death dressed in white, and I are here to say: We didn't HATE her. We LOVED to HATE her.

    Hendrix made that very clear when she commented on the accusatory meme in question.

    Yes, she wreaked havoc on little Nicky's love life all for the sake of fabulous wine and money...
