Did You Know?
This episode was a case of life imitating art. One of the stories involves a woman (played by Meredith Baxter
) who had posed nude years before when she was young and desperate and was now trying to hide the fact. As it would later come out Suzanne Somers
had posed for Playboy under the same circumstances back in 1970. After she became a household name from the success of Three's Company
(1977), Playboy published the photos, despite her attempts to prevent it. See more
