"Puritanism is the haunting fear that someone, somewhere, may be happy." - H.L. MENCKEN
There is too many articles to post, but basically Karen was not interested in PB or posing nude. She says her father basically pimped her out to Playboy. He was a drummer in a band and was hoping to mooch off her fame as a centerfold.
"When I lived in the LA area, one of my roommates had kids that got involved in what they called acrosports.
They would use a teeter board to get launched into the air and do twists and somersaults.
A group of stunt people would bring a board and mats to the grassy area in front of the lifeguard station below the Santa Monica pier and they would practice on Saturdays.
Karen was trying to get into stunt work, and showed up irregularly.
I remember her as being a very nice person who was not happy with the post centerfold obligations Playboy insisted upon.
She wanted to finish what she owed them and get out.
I also remember her as not being happy with her father."----2cheap
The article is interesting, and it has two nice photos. Karen let’s us know that she weighed 148 pounds before dropping weight for her PB shoot (which may explain a few things!) and that after her shoot, while she was trying to break into acting, she went down to 118 pounds. Karen also names the names of hangers-on around the PB mansion who she met. She's polite, but it doesn’t sound like she was terribly impressed.
You put the balm on? Who told you to put the balm on? I didn't tell you to put the balm on! Why'd you put the balm on? You haven't even been to see the doctor. If you're gonna put a balm on, let a doctor put a balm on...
I am currently going over my old posts and re-upping dead links. Let me know if you want any fixed!!
