Close-Up On Angelyne

If you lived in Hollywood in the ‘80s, you couldn’t miss countless billboards featuring a buxom blond named Angelyne.  The “model” (for lack of a better term) had reportedly courted a wealthy sponsor to bankroll the billboard blitz, and a legend was bought…er, born.  Angelyne was soon seen in ads, at events, and on red carpets.  She even ran for governor of California in 2003 (she finished 28th).  The problem is, she never really did much of anything except show up places – including in supermarket parking lots where she can still be seen selling T-shirts out of the trunk of her aging pink Corvette.  So I was shocked to learn that NBC’s streaming Peacock platform is producing a series about her life.  Don’t get me wrong – there have been biopics about people with less going for them (although, for the life of me, I can’t think of anyone off the top of my head).  Angie will be played by Emmy Rossum (who I know has done things, but for the life of me, I can’t think of anything off the top of my head).
