Random hotness...

... with a quiz. This “Gong Show” contestant is now the mother of a successful young Hollywood actress. Can you name the actress?

Is it cheating if I employed Google? I won't spill if it is.

Thora Birch.

Carol Connors was in the porn classic "Deep Throat."

There'd be no figuring it out otherwise, I assume.

Neat piece of trivia, though, ain't it?

Happy New Year, Alan.

^Yes. very nice piece of trivia. :-) (I friggin' loved the Gong Show!) Gotta another one for you.

Years ago, I remember watching the most obnoxious contestant on the "Newlywed Game." His name was "Blackie." He was arrogant and rude.

Years later I learned that he was an actor (ha! his antics back then made sense). He was in one of the Lethal Weapon movies (guy in plaid jacket).

Anyway, he's the father of Anthony Kiedis of the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Hmmmm. Gonna have to watch Deep Throat again...

Just for the record, I didn't employ Google or Wikipedia until after the fact, so I could post the link for y'all.

I just knew that little piece of trivia already, because I'm really a big perv. ;)

Invisible Woman, I believe she was some kind of singer at one point.

I used to LOVE the Gong Show when I was a kid. You guys got me curious and I had to search Jaye P. Morgan's claim to fame because it was a question we all had while watching the show. She was on-the-charts singer in the 50s

Heck, I had to look up Thora Birch too.

Maybe I threw people with the word "successful." But hey... I dug "Ghost World."

Took me a full minute before I realized it was The Beetles she was murdering.

Whatever happened to Thora Birch anyway?
