Of course, I’ll remember her and Adrian Zmed in only the 2nd movie I’ve seen him in and of course, Dance Fever reboot. Blah. She was cute though.
Seinfeld filmed 180 episodes and has hundreds of guest stars,laws of average suggest even if most of those people will just go on to die from old age ala Jerry Stiller,Uncle Leo,Seinfelds dad etc some of those people would die from a drug overdose,suicide,cancer etc. Pick any random 400 or so people from the yellow pages and track them over 30 years and you would get a similiar result.

She had the face of Seal. I understood the multiple plastic surgeries and the wonders of having an awesome make up artist.

Yeah, the results would be similar. Being in show business may slightly decrease your life expectancy though. They tend to make more risks with their life and are more likely to suffer from drug abuse and alcoholism than the average population. Musicians seem to have the worst record for premature deaths. Becoming a rap musician definetely decreases your life expectancy. I believe their average live expectancy is only 30 years of age.

Maybe the Seinfield producers used their power to give a little help to comic actors who needed it. Or maybe comic actors are more prone to tragic deaths.

The Love Boat's aired forty years ago and the guest stars were usually has beens that were well past their prime when they became guest stars on the show. Some of them were from the silent movie era. Others were stars during the 1930's to the 1950's. It would be reasonable to expect they would be long gone by now.

Congrats, you figured out the meaning of a joke.

My wife told me yesterday that Tawny would call the Angels front office all the time to find out where Chuck Finley was. Shed hang up if nobody answered and would call right back. My wife got her on the phone once and she demanded to know where Chuck was at that moment and insisted he was with another woman. My wife told her I have no idea, but hes not here in the front office.

So she agreed to a date even though she's married.

She went out with OJ Simpson while she was married to David Coverdale...so it could happen.

I don't know if it is a complete disconnect, or just that hot girls play mind games, but I have heard about this phenomenon of beautiful women accepting what the men think are dates (ie, I want to have sex with you) and the women claiming that they thought the man was just trying to be friends.

I met her twice. Helped her shop at Circuit City as a manager in the 90's. I swear to god, I saw her in line to get popcorn, at the Big Newport, opening day of The Phantom Menace, I am in full Jedi costume, and she began flirting with me! LOL. I have told that story a million times.

And yet, she was the one calling the Angels demanding to know where her husband was at all times. She didnt sound like your typical crazy hot chick at all.

Dang, I just now heard of her passing. She was an iconic 'nookie girl' of the 80s. I lusted over her in Bachelor Party--watched that countless times. I remember when she showed up as Herc's wife in Hercules: The Legendary Journeys and I was disappointed that she didn't have a bigger role in that.
