are Playboy models . . . and then there is Karin Taylor. Miss June
1996, Taylor is one of the few Playmates that transcends the
magazine's legendary status and becomes a legend all their own. Could
it be that incredible body? Or the beautiful smile? What about the
smooth, cocoa skin that sets her apart from so many of the blond
bombshells and makes us fantasize about laying nude on the beaches of
Taylor's homeland in Jamaica? (OK, we're fantasizing about her laying
nude on the beach while we down a beer and gawk!)
years of international modeling, Taylor turned her focus toward
acting. Stints on "Malcolm & Eddie" and
"Baywatch" moved her in the right direction, but she's
working harder than ever to perfect her life-long career goal. To
help in the process, Taylor says she's currently enrolled in classes
to help overcome her shyness--the same affliction that forced her
father to pay an employee to take her to the prom!
when you thought it couldn't get any better, Taylor announces that
her ultimate goal is to settle down into a "normal life,"
have kids and be a "Martha Stewart."
God! Finally a woman you wouldn't mind coming home to and
discovering she'd turned your golf clubs into paperweights, knitted a
"cozy cup" for your 40-ouncer, and gotten the blood stains
out of the shirt you've been showing your buddies for years as proof
that you DID, in fact, win that bar room brawl in 1992.
making "Martha Stewart" not sound like a compound four-letter
word, Karin Taylor, you're our "MVP of the Week."
