    She had a rather troubled personal life. Probably a minor miracle she made it to 59yrs of age. RIP

    She also played Isabel, one of Jerry's girlfriends on Seinfeld.

    I remember seeing this thing on VH-1 where they talking about a website, where women who had...let's say been with various rock, stars reported on the size of the manhood of the respective musician in question. Tawny was one of the celebrity commentators, saying, "I wish I could have seen this site before I married David Coverdale".

    She was also one of the people on Celebrity Rehab one season.

    Wow. Too young of course. I suppose most on here know that she was at one point married to David Coverdale and even appeared in some of the Whitesnake videos(I don't remember which ones). She might have appeared in music videos for other bands but I don't remember which ones. Yes, she was of course also in Bachelor Party as has already been mentioned. RIP Tawny.

    I don't think anyone's mentioned one of my favourites from the 80s, the horror film Witchboard.

    Still Of The Night, Here I Go Again 87, Is This Love, Fool For You Loving 89, and The Deeper The Love. I doublechecked that on Wikipedia, but I knew the first four off the top of my head. I don't think I even knew there was a video for The Deeper The Love.

    Just saw her on a rerun of Botched, where she was trying to get a botched boob job reduced to pre implant size. She seemed like a nice person who was finally at peace with herself. That is way too young to go, hope she did not suffer much.

    That was on TV not too long ago. Not bad; I don't think I had seen it before so watched it all the way through. Rest in peace, Tawny Kitaen.

    Yeah, that seems unlikely, but it's still a great line.

    Is it true that she left Coverdale because Glenn Hughes was always trying to out-do him in bed?

    When he joined Purple, they fixed his teeth, and did other things to improve his appearance.

    R.I.P TK, but those 80s videos are truly dreadful.

    WTF was everyone thinking back then?

    It must have been the cocaine.

    I don't nkow about his teeth, but I remember they paid for him to get contacts. If you check the very earliest publicity photos from when David and Glenn first joined the band, David's wearing glasses in all the photos.

    Anyone see her flick Crystal Heart with Lee Curreri (keyboardist, acted in Fame)? The story resembles The Boy In The Plastic Bubble. I caught it on cable in the 80s. If you liked her in Whitesnake videos, you ain't seen nothin' yet.

    ^^ If it was drug related, it could be weeks before we know. It takes that long to perform drug tests.
