Bonus Trivia

.

"Glamour's my thing. The glamour is what got me into this business in the first place. I lived in a fantasy world in order to survive. Now that I'm here, I plan to work it. That means playing the part--long, tight dresses, slick! Unless you rise to the occasion, Hollywood doesn't really exist."--Theresa Randle, US, June 1994
