I was on the original show
14 January 2002 | by See all my reviews

The show first aired from NYC and I was one of the girls in the tight dresses. It was an amazing time to work with the"Great One". I am sorry that they did not include the names/credits of the sexy girls in the tight dresses aka me, Sally Carter, Gretta Randall, Karen (?), Darlene Enlow, Anne ( sadly she moved to Paris and didn't do anything else. I have forgotten her name). Glad you enjoyed the show, I did
