Personal Quote:

[We were] all just kids playing together. We had fun. The mothers on the other hand, were awful. Stage mothers are just vile women, including my own. [It was] my mother's dream, but it wasn't mine. See more »


After she quit burlesque, she found a diverse variety of jobs to maintain an income: bartender, secretary, theater sales director, truck driver for the Air Force, dress shop saleslady, nuts and bolts saleslady, marketing director, and jewelry designer/painter. See more »


Platinum blond hair, heavily moussed, with four spit curls.
