Miss June 1997
1 June 1997

moderator
Okay, folks. Carrie will be here in a few minutes. We're trying to pull her away from the party.
moderator
Feel free to start submitting questions.
moderator
Okay everybody, I've got to go push through the crowd and get Carrie. Hang tight.
Feel free to gather in the Event Lobby and chat while we set up here.
moderator
Hey everybody, it was a success. I found Carrie. I elbowed my way through the crowd and brought back Miss June 1997. Anybody have any questions?
Carriestevens
Hey guys! How are you doing tonight?
David2
Evening Carrie. I was wondering what you have been doing since Playboy?
Carriestevens
I just did a music video with Michael Richards (Kramer from "Seinfeld") to promote his new movie called "Trial & Error." The band was the legendary Taj Mahl. It can be seen now on the music video channels.
I'm also going to be hosting FYE on the E! Channel for an event in the Caribbean. It will benefit four wildlife conservation groups.
Redwing
Hi Carrie!! Thanks for joining us. Will you tell us what you are working on?
Carriestevens
I'm doing promotions everywhere from Chicago to the Caribbean to Utah, Nevada, Tennessee and Argentina.
Redwing
What flowers do you like? Are you getting them often enough these days?
Carriestevens
Actually, I have received no flowers since it was published that that is what turns me on. I love roses, wildflowers...
Carriestevens
smiles.
Tad
Are you going to be able to attend any of the upcoming Glamourcon shows?
Carriestevens
Maybe. I have a pretty busy schedule right now, but I'd like to.
Tad
Hi Carrie, how did you feel when you first saw your issue?
Carriestevens
I am very happy with my layout. It's a real kick to see yourself that way.
Redwing
Could you tell us what it was like on the set of "Weird Science"?
Carriestevens
I did the pilot episode of "Weird Science." The cast was a lot of fun and as a matter of fact, I'm now with the same manager as Vanessa Angel who played the lead character, Lisa.
Redwing
You are holding a pair of glasses in your layout. Were they props or do you wear them too?
Carriestevens
Nope. I have 20/20 vision.
Kvdavis
I see that you were born in Buffalo. Did you also grow up there too?
Carriestevens
No. But I still have family there.I actually grew up in Massachusetts.
Lavenkev
Carrie, are you single and looking to get married? Or is your present work schedule too demanding to have a serious relationship?
Carriestevens
I think I'll start looking in about three years. Until then I'm enjoying riding the wave of youth and success and the wild life.
Wil
Why did your Dad name you for a spectrophotometer? He should have named you instead for a scintillation counter, because you sparkle!
Carriestevens
blushes in embarrassment.
Carriestevens
Thank you! But, the answer is my father was so busy working on the spectrophotometer every night which was named Carrie that when he came home my mother would tease him and say he was out with his girlfriend every night.
Will23
How are you Carrie? What is your favorite play, to act in/see?
Carriestevens
Fine thank you. My favorite play to act in would be an original play that I did called "The God Game." I played a 19 year old nymphomaniac. I'd like to do "Orpheus Descending" by Tennessee Williams
Redwing
Do you prefer guys with or without beards?
Carriestevens
Without. But I do like razor stubble although I won't kiss you if you have it because it makes my face breakout.
Lavenkev
Would you consider yourself a nymphomaniac?
Carriestevens
No, unfortunately.
Redwing
Do you have a large family?
Carriestevens
Nope, one sister.
Tad
Are you still doing any LA stage productions or have any upcoming?
Carriestevens
No time right now. By next summer I'd like to produce something in LA.
Dominique
What quality do you enjoy the most in others?
Carriestevens
Loyalty.
Will23
What will your next man be like?
Carriestevens
If I were psychic, I would tell you.
Carriestevens
smirks.
Carriestevens
I can only hope he'll be independent, self-sufficient, have a great sense of humor be very considerate, have an insatiable sex drive, yet only have eyes for me.
Wil
You're the third Playmate to have been involved romantically with a member of Kiss. What is it with those guys, anyway, that wins the Playmates' hearts?
Carriestevens
I prefer to separate Eric from the rest. He was truly an individual and I respect his memory as such.
Claus
How does your sister feel about Playboy?
Carriestevens
It's really cool because she is a lesbian feminist and she is highly supportive. She even had my centerfold laminated. She understands that Playboy glorifies the beauty of a woman not demeans it in any way.
Tad
Is your sister younger or older? Might your sister be another potential Playmate?
Carriestevens
She's one year older than I am. She was asked to do a feature on Playmates and their sisters, but she's a little shy.
Lavenkev
Carrie do you like older men or younger men?
Carriestevens
I date everyone from age 22 to 42, so I'm not that particular. It's how mature you are that attracts me.
moderator
The Moderator would like to know why that particular age range?
Carriestevens
That just happens to be where it's fallen lately.
Redwing
Describe your ideal fan. Do you plan on having a fan club?
Carriestevens
A person who appreciates a person's inner beauty as well as their outer and someone who believes in their future potential.
I would like to start a fan club in the near future.
Tad
When you were younger how did you feel about Playboy? Did you ever think you might pose one day?
Carriestevens
I always had it in the back of my mind, but believe it or not I had low self esteem and I didn't think I could get in. Once I had the nerve to try, it opened up all kinds of doors. I'm very happy I did.
Claus
Do you get recognized a lot as the current Playmate of the month?
Carriestevens
Not as much as I thought. But I'm flattered when it happens.
Kvdavis
It sounds as though you have a very open minded family. How does you father handle it?
Carriestevens
My father is the closest person to me. I'm a real daddy's girl. He's the most supportive force in my life.
Redwing
If a fan spotted you, would you prefer the fan to approach you or leave you alone?
Carriestevens
I'd prefer that he'd say "hello" and introduce himself.
Redwing
Has your High School class had a reunion? If so, did you go? Why or why not
Carriestevens
The reunion is next month and unfortunately I'll be too busy on tour and I won't be able to go.
Wil
Do you feel you got more or less attention than you would have otherwise, since your pictorial appeared in the same issue as the Playmate of the Year?
Carriestevens
I don't feel slighted in any way. The attention has been great and I'm flattered to be in the issue that gets more publicity than any other.
Tad
Will you be making any appearances in upcoming Playboy videos?
Carriestevens
You can see me in "Voluptuous Vixens."
Lavenkev
What would be your dream vacation?
Carriestevens
I'd love to be in the Amazon, see the waterfalls of Venezuela, sail the Greek islands...
Redwing
What are you hobbies?
Carriestevens
Horseback riding, rollerblading, writing poetry and I like to ride waverunners!
Wil
Who are your friends among the Playmates?
Carriestevens
I don't know any very well, but the ones I've met recently whom I've really liked, are Karin Taylor, Victoria Fuller and Carrie Westcot.
Claus
How would you compare shooting you pictorial to making "Voluptuous Vixens"?
Carriestevens
My video was a lot of work and pressure because it was all about me. Incidentally, I'm very pleased with the way it turned out.
"Voluptuous Vixens" was a lot of fun because I did period piece themes...I was a 40's Vargas girl and a 50's soda fountain girl.
Tad
Do you have any pets? If so, what types? Names?
Carriestevens
No pets. When I'm not so busy I would love to have cats, dogs, horses...but right now I don't have the time I need to take care of them.
Wil
You said you like writing poetry. What sorts of poems do you write, and about what subjects?
Carriestevens
Mostly I write for myself therapeutically. I love romantic poetry. I usually write about what I'm inspired about at the time.
Redwing
Did you think of yourself as good looking in school?
Carriestevens
I was voted most popular, best dressed and best smile in high school.
Kvdavis
Before Playboy, what kind of work did you do?
Carriestevens
I've acted for the past 7 years. I've modeled on and off since the age of 10. I've also cocktail waitressed and worked the front desk at hotels and gyms.
Redwing
What do you do to relax?
Carriestevens
I light candles and take a hot bubble bath and meditate.
Scottm2060
Hi, Carrie!! I certainly hope that you'll be the next PMOY. If you are chosen, you'll be the first June PMOM in the history of Playboy. Here's my vote!!
Carriestevens
Thanks for your vote. I'm ready to make history.
Carriestevens
smiles.
Redwing
What is the nicest thing a stranger has done for you?
Carriestevens
Sent me 100 roses with a note asking to have dinner with him.
Kvdavis
When did you know that you wanted to be a Playmate?
Carriestevens
I've always wanted to be a Playmate. It just took a me awhile to send pictures out.
Redwing
What's the best advise you were given? Who gave it to you?
Carriestevens
"The girl sets the pace": my grandmother.
Wil
You said you were voted as having the nicest smile. Is that why you were discovered in a dentist's office? :)
Carriestevens
Hmmm....
Carriestevens
It is an interesting coincidence though, isn't it?
Davison
There has been a lot of discussion about your grooming in the pictorial, was it a big deal to you or the photographer?
Carriestevens
I'm not exactly sure what you mean Davison.
moderator
While we wait for clarification, we'll move on.
Tad
So...did you have dinner with the guy who sent you the 100 roses? If so, how did it work out?
Carriestevens
Yes, how could I pass up 100 roses!!! It didn't work out the way I planned though.
Wil
Do you own any of the props or costume items from your centerfold pose? Those are highly sought by collectors!
Carriestevens
No, I don't, but I was able to keep the glasses.
Davison
This question is clarification of the earlier one regarding "grooming": The amount you shave, reveals more than is standard in PB.
Carriestevens
This was a personal choice. No one requested any particular grooming for the pictorial.
Redwing
Do you collect anything?
Carriestevens
No, I'm not a big collector. I hate junk. I'm not a pack rat!
moderator
Okay folks, we're about ready to wrap up tonight's chat. Get your final questions in now.
Wil
Do you get back to Memphis any more nowadays?
Carriestevens
No, not at all. I don't have any family there any more.
Davison
I love the Halloween picture, did you pick that or do they actually choose from what you submit?
Carriestevens
They choose from what I submit. Thanks, by the way. :)
Redwing
Will you be in Chicago long?
Carriestevens
No, just a few days for promotions and then I'm off to the Caribbean!
Redwing
Carrie thanks for joining us tonight! It was fun, will you come back?
Carriestevens
I had a lot of fun with you guys. I would love to come back and chat again!
Tad
I just want to say that it has been a pleasure chatting with you. You have my vote also for PMOY. I hope you can make it to Glamourcon.
Will23
How can we find out about a fan club?
Carriestevens
You can contact Playmate Promotions right now at: 9242 Beverly Blvd., Beverly Hills, CA 90210. I'll let everyone know about my fan club as soon as I know.
moderator
Okay folks, thanks for coming.
Davison
Thanks again for taking the time from your busy schedule. Good luck with your acting career.
Carriestevens
Thanks. It was fun being here.
Carriestevens
smooches everyone.
moderator
