This photo was taken one year ago at Duke Vincent's book party for Mafia Summer. I was a brand new actress in town when I first met Aaron Spelling. I was on a date with an agent at La Scala and Spelling was at the front booth with Natalie Wood and Robert Wagner. I was star-struck. As I passed by their table, Spelling stopped me and asked me to come in to meet his casting director the next day, Cathy Henderson. I did, and got my first professional part on TV: Love Boat. I was a nervous wreck and played a girl in a bikini playing shuffleboard, with just one or two lines. I remember the makeup artist putting too much blush on my face, so I looked beet-red or purple. I could barely say the lines, my voice jumped two octaves and sounded like a hyena. The next part he gave me was on Charlie's Angels, playing a real estate broker, standing behind Shelly Hack. After that I got the series Too Close for Comfort, and ended up doing 9 guest starring roles for Aaron Spelling: Fantasy Island (as a Playmate of the Year with John James from Dynasty), 5 Love Boats, 2 Hotels, T.J. Hooker.
He was one of the kindest, most wonderful men in the business and treated everyone like royalty. I will miss him.
God Bless his family.

YOU CAN'T TAKE IT WITH YOU. HOW TO GET RICH? GIVE TO THE POOR. Warren Buffet just gave away the bulk of his fortune to charity, via the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the wealthiest and most generous charitable Foundation helping those less fortunate all over the world to obtain health care, fight diseases, build homes, rebuild libraries and improve education. These amazing people are living examples of Christ's admonition for the wealthy to help care for the "least among us." God Bless Warren Buffet for not waiting until after his death; and God Bless Bill and Melinda Gates for living their principles. And God Bless Angelina Jolie for giving away a full one-third of her income to help the poor. The Christ is awake in the ship. Christ consciousness is rising.

Ann Coulter keeps saying Democrats should be offended that she calls them godless. With a god like Ann Coulter's, who needs a devil? Who would want Ann Coulter's brand, when it is the opposite of God? We can't even be offended by her perverse book title calling more than half of all Americans godless. Just to "play with liberals heads", she chose the Number of the Beast 6/6/06 as her release date.
