Mini Bio (1)

Buxom, gorgeous and curvaceous 5'2" brunette knockout Diane Webber was born Marguerite Diane Empey on July 29, 1932, in Los Angeles, California. She was the daughter of writer/producer Arthur Guy Empey and his wife Marguerite Andrus. Diane worked as a chorus girl and took formal ballet training. She married Joe Webber in 1955 and was discovered by the same man who discovered the young Marilyn Monroe. Webber was the Playmate of the Month in the May 1955 and February 1956 issues of "Playboy" magazine. With her lovely face and exceptionally toned, shapely and voluptuous 39C-23-37 figure, hypnotically sensual presence and large natural breasts, Diane was a popular pin-up girl of the 1950s and 1960s, doing pictorials for and/or gracing the covers of such men's magazines as "Frolic," "Escapade," "Adam," "Beau," "Jem," "Tiger," "Modern Sunbathing," "Mermaid," "Monsieur," "Fling," "American Nudist," "Rogue," "Nugget," and "Esquire." Among the noted glamor photographers she posed for are Bunny Yeager, Russ Meyer and Peter Gowland.

An avowed nudist, Diane appeared on the covers of many publications that endorsed the "naturist" lifestyle. In addition, she also was featured on the cover photos for the music albums "Sea of Dreams" by Nelson Riddle and "Jewels of the Sea" by Les Baxter. Diane acted in a handful of films and TV shows/ She portrayed a mermaid in both the nudie-cutie feature Mermaids of Tiburon (1962) and Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea: The Mermaid (1967). She appeared as herself in the obscure 1962 Russ Meyer nudie cutie short "This Is My Body." Besides acting and modeling, Webber was also a belly dancer and dancing teacher. "The Wonderful Webbers", written by June Lange, documented the Webber's nudist life style. In 1975 Diane was found guilty in a postal obscenity case, but the verdict was later overturned.

Diane Webber died at age 76 from complications following surgery for cancer on August 19, 2008, in Los Angeles, California.
