Fondren, who lived in Lumberton, Texas, and was working as a waitress at Gallagher's (a steakhouse, now closed and still boarded up) in Beaumont, Texas, was discovered on a visit to Las Vegas by photographer Robert Scott Hooper, who also photographed her centerfold, featuring her very long, almost knee-length blonde hair.[1][2] Fondren had guest-starring roles on television series such as Mork & Mindy and Fantasy Island. She also appeared in movies such as Spit Fire. In 2007, she returned home to the Lumberton/Silsbee, Texas, area, having stated she had enough of the California lifestyle and now operates a beauty school in her home area.[3]
