SN 1 | EP 43 | Tawny Kitaen

A high-school dropout and self-proclaimed surfer chick from San Diego, Tawny Kitaen made her way to Hollywood in 1980 with dreams of becoming an actress. She landed her first starring role in the 1983 erotic-adventure The Perils of Gwendoline, and followed that up in 1984 with a starring role opposite Tom Hanks in the mainstream Hollywood comedy, Bachelor Party. But it was Tawny's appearance on MTV in the Whitesnake videos that really catapulted her, and the band, Whitesnake, to fame. The most famous of those videos, Here I Go Again, featured Tawny writhing across the hoods of two jaguars in a flowing white negligee. The video had heavy rotation on MTV, the single hit #1 on the Billboard charts, and Tawny married the lead singer of the band, David Coverdale.
