    In 1984 it was the magazine that took down Miss America, publishing nude pictures of Vanessa Williams, the first black woman to hold the title. Williams, who went on to fame as a singer and actress, was forced to relinquish her crown after the release of the issue, which sold nearly 6 million copies and reportedly made $14 million.


    I know I bought a copy! :ujerk:

    His wife, April Dawn Warren Guccione, had said he had battled lung cancer for several years.

    whoops, sorry -- I thought Spazz was the OP, and I know he isn't in TX, so I wondered if there was a reason he mentioned Plano -- NOW I get :)
