Four For Friday - The Vixen Says Hello

Out of the blue she called. Even though she had changed her phone number, as soon as I heard her say hello, I knew who it was. Her voice is etched in my memory. Too many late night calls when she was in trouble and needed something. Too many late night calls where she was wasted and needed a ride or just to talk. She had been watching the news coverage of the Malibu fires and told me that Surfer Boy's house was one of the ones that was destroyed.

We got to talking about the days when all of that happened. So much has changed in her life the past decade or so. She is a completely different person and considers that a different life. She is making tentative steps to mount a comeback, but I don't really give it much of a chance. I think she likes who she is right now better than making movies or television again.

While we are on the phone talking about Malibu she told me a story that happened when she was at her peak. She was set to audition for this network show that was pretty much a hit and had been on the for a few years by the time they brought her on board. Apparently the last "her" was kicked off because the married lead actor was tired of hooking up with "her," so they needed a new one. So, Vixen thought the audition was going to be at a studio or up north where they had production offices. Nope. She had to go to the rental house in Malibu where the actor was staying. He was A list. Previously he had been A+ list. All of you know him. She walked in and he was the only one there and said something to the effect of if you want the part you have to have sex with me. If you don't, then bye. She needed the part. It was a main role on a network hit. So, she had sex with him. She had to have sex with him the entire season. When the season wrapped she got her contract picked up. The actor told her he was picking it up because she had been just what he needed but that she needed to bring a whole new game for the next season. During the summer, he never called or met her. Then, like clockwork, the first day the cast got back together for a table read of the first episode he told her to come to his place right after and the sex picked up again right where they had left off. When her second season on the show ended, she was fired. They were hiring a new "her," because she had started to become boring and predictable in bed.

She said she had hit casting couches before, but this was just a time where she really felt like a piece of trash to be thrown away. She tried to warn off the next "her," but that "her," did the same thing for the season she was on the show too.

This Vixen is way before my time but I'll throw out Daphne Zuniga just because Ive bern wondering about her lately and maybe Richard Dean Anderson?

Humor Me said...

This screams Pamela Anderson, and I am probably wrong.

Joe Mama said...

Pamela Anderson/Home Improvement?

B Demp said...

Baywatch and the Hoff

Lonely Bastard said...

Wasn't she in Home Improvement from the very start though?

Erin Sheehy said...

I thought about the revolving door of later years of 90210

Moose said...

Noah Wyle and ER - with the Vixen perhaps being Kellie Martin?

J said...

"...she needed the part"

...because she was too pretty to be an accountant or surveyor or any normal job.

Lisa said...

Agree about Daphne Z.

spacecowboy78 said...

Wasn't the Vixen revealed or figured out to be Yasmine Bleeth? Isn't this her and her time on Nash Bridges with Don Johnson?

sandybrook said...

I defer to Space Cowboy because he was here and was a legendary guesser back then.

Glue said...

@spacecowboy78 - I'm inclined to agree with you....this blind item is familiar.

Sara, Making It Work said...

David Chokachi from Baywatch lost his Malibu home in the fires, so he makes sense for Surfer Boy.

DDonna Tarttty said...

Steve Miller fan SpaceCowboy is on the mark.

Series is "Nash Bridges"
Predator is Don Johnson
Victims were Annette O'Toole, Yasmine Bleeth ("Vixen") and Wendy Moniz

Polo said...

And Nash Bridges' offices were up north in San Fran

Brian said...

Per this article: http://articles.orlandosentinel.com/1997-04-13/business/9704091188_1_ali-bongo-nash-bridges-house

Cheech Marin rented out one of the houses on his property in Malibu starting in 1997.

It's gotta be Nash Bridges.

Dahling said...

J - you really don't know how the world works do you? Do you live in a BOX??

Gator said...

I don't think Pam Anderson was fired from Home Improvement or Baywatch.

plot said...

Pam wasn't a costar on Home Improvement. Did she even speak in her role?

Nor Cal said...

Enty gave links to earlier Vixen blinds on his Facebook account. I do not have time to go through all of them but this is what I found out so far:

Vixen lost her home in the 2007 Malibu fire

Surfer Boy was a 16 year old neighbor who Vixen introduced to drugs

Vixen was arrested for drugs- apparently in Malibu- and she was arrested because Surfer Boy got in trouble and told the police about her

the last clue rules the Yasmine Bleeth- she was arrested but in Detroit after a DUI incident

Nor Cal said...

meant to type "rules out" Yasmine Bleeth

Missy Bigbritches said...

I think we agreed that Yasmine Bleeth was Vixen.

gauloise said...

Here is the original Vixen blind w/ the clues

https://www.crazydaysandnights.net/2015/11/blind-item-16-anniversary-month.html

16 year old surfer boy would now be about 25 years old.
Father is famous music producer. "

Vixen" (faded teen starlet who hit it big as a TV star, 5 minute A list, then rare movies)
was mid-to-late 30s in 2006.
Arrest occurred in 2006 and made news then.
Never married as of 2006

-----------

Bleeth has been married since 2002 and did not really go from TV to Film

rosie riveter said...

Its a litter box

gauloise said...

For surfer boy the guesses were

Cisco Adler
Father, Lou Adler

Kate K said...

Bay watch was almost-Network, then syndicated so no-one from Baywatch.

Rose McGowan?

Lurker no more said...

Kelly Packard Baywatch? She's married and has 4 kids. Judging by her credits on IMDB she's somewhat trying to make a comeback.

Morning Lorri said...

Don Johnson
Nash Bridges
Yasmine bleeth lasted 2 years

Trak512 said...

First thought was Melrose Place . Kristin Davis, Lisa Rinna, Kelly Rutherford, Laura Leighton, Alyssa Milano? but the guys don't seem to fit (Jack Wagner? Andrew Shue?).

Brayson87 said...

You know we never hear a lot of these #MeToo stories lol

hunter said...

Yasmine Bleeth was SO BEAUTIFUL but sadly got caught up in booze and drugs.

Being an alcoholic pill popper then getting sober have resulted in some weight gain and I think she would be far FAR better off to continue leaving her past in the rearview mirror.

Kimberley said...

Dang, I loved that show! Plus the TV continuity announcer lady would always make a joke about Nash Bridge's wardrobe, making fun of his outfits!

Miley Cyrus

Depeche Model said...

I don't get it. She wasn't raped. There was no gun being held to her head. Her life wasn't in danger. She was given a clear choice and she decided to whore herself out for a part on tv. Then, after she had whored herself out countless times, voluntarily, she was upset that she was treated like a whore.

Am I missing something?

Susannah Leigh Murray said...

Amanda Bynes and Hemsworth for the Surfer boy

Paul Saint John said...

You're missing the whole feminist bullshit propaganda narrative called #MeToo.

Anna Mouse said...

@depeche model - a victim will always respond like a victim. it seems nearly all actresses don't have a say if they want (decent / lots of) work, like it's some unwritten rule. young pretty actresses are probably being groped (or raped) from an early age. it still feels slightly 'rapey' even if you're doing it for a job because it's a position you're placed in that you'd rather NOT be in. it's easy for people to say 'just say no', or, 'is a job that important' - these aren't really options to many females (with zero / low self worth) have. they're still being taken advantage of; that's the bottom line. it's not really whoring, it's the lay of the land. (no pun intended). some actresses have had a decade worth of sexual activity before they hit their 20's. (i'm only using the female term as the blind is about a female - these things happen to boys and men).

Depeche Model said...

Anna: A victim HAS NO CHOICE. That makes them a victim.

When you have a choice, you're not a victim.

plot said...

So if one has a choice between being raped and being killed, one is not a victim?

Clarify, por favor.

Paul Saint John said...

@Plot
If one has a choice between eating dick and not getting a part, you're not being raped. That's the reason @MeToo is crock of shit.

plot said...

No, Saint, I'm coming at this from another angle. The subject seems to be choice here and I'm wondering what the limits of that are. According to you, if any woman is told to suck dick and get a promotion, or don't and she is fired or demoted, she is not raped if she chooses to suck dick. Do I have that right?

As long as there is a choice, under any circumstances, there is no crime or foul or ethical quandary?


Paul Saint John said...

@Plot
There is indeed no crime. Just foul ethics on both parts.

plot said...

So, if a job is offered to a woman, or a man, but only if sexual demands are met, you think BOTH parties are ethically compromised to equal degrees?

BTW, yes, it is a crime in all Western nations for a superior to use their power to elicit sexual favors.
