moderator
Hello and welcome. Tonight's chat with Patricia Farinelli, Miss December 1981, will begin in about 10 minutes. Go ahead and get some of your questions ready.
moderator
Okay everyone, we're about to get started. Start asking your questions and say "hello" to Patricia Farinelli.
Patriciafarinlli
Hi everyone, it's great to be here! How are you tonight?
Wcwakai
Hi Patricia! I'm so glad that you were invited here! Your pictorial is one of my all-time favorites!
Rogerrabbit
Can you give us an update? What's happened in the last 16 years?
Patriciafarinlli
Thank you Wcwakai! Well, I'm a mother for the first time. I have a two year old. I still go up to the Mansion, so I still keep in touch with people from Playboy. I just got back from a trip to Europe. Right now I'm Miss Suzy-homemaker.
Striker
How far would you go in the area of adult entertainment? (ie. would you do anything more extreme than Playboy?)
Patriciafarinlli
No, I would not. Playboy is the furthest I would go. Playboy is the ultimate men's magazine. You can't get any better.
Wcwakai
Have you been doing any modelling since your pictorial?
Patriciafarinlli
No. I have not done any modeling since my pictorial. For no particular reason.
Gman
Have you ever been in any movies ?
Patriciafarinlli
I was an extra in "Holy Moses" with Dudley Moore. Two TV dating games back in the eighties. Also, I was just in the audience on the "Price Is Right!" :)
I didn't pursue that career. I sort of wish I had but I didn't.
Wil
In your pictorial and in "The Playmate Book" you talked about religion a lot. Do you find posing for Playboy to be consistent with your religious beliefs?
Patriciafarinlli
I've always had the Lord in my heart. So now if I were asked to pose in Playboy, I would say no because it would go against my beliefs. Sometimes you're on fire for the Lord and sometimes you stray a little.
Wcwakai
Your looks make you a natural to become a Playmate, but how did you decide to become one?
Patriciafarinlli
A friend of mine submitted a photograph of me without my knowledge. My friend called and said Playboy wanted to shoot me and I didn't believe him. He gave me the number to call and it turned out to be true!
Patriciafarinlli
smiles.
Wil
Who are your friends among the Playmates?
Patriciafarinlli
Vicki Lassetter. She was Feb 1980 or 82. I keep in touch with her. Also, Debra Jo Fondren. Although I haven't had the chance to speak with her lately.
Wcwakai
Did your friend get in trouble with you for submitting your photo without your permission? (I hope not!!)
Patriciafarinlli
Oh no! I just couldn't believe it when he told me.
Herman
Is Playboy planning to re-release your video centerfold?
Patriciafarinlli
I have no idea. I was upset about the video actually, because they did not use my voice. They used Shannon Tweed's voice. I guess they didn't like my accent.
Roller
Do you spend much time on the net?
Patriciafarinlli
Yes, I do! I love it. I've been hanging out on Sony Online; Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune. I used to hang out in chat rooms all the time, but I don't do that as much now.
Tad
Besides the cyberchat, will you be doing any future Playboy promotions such as Glamourcon? (I hope so, I would love to meet you!)
Patriciafarinlli
I've been asked to. I'm not sure yet. I've been definitely thinking about.
Herman
Do you have a fan club?
Patriciafarinlli
No, I don't. You can write to me through Playmate Promotions, though.
David2
Have you had a chance to check out the Cyber Club (outside of the Chat room) and if so what do you think about the Club?
Patriciafarinlli
No, I have not yet. But I plan on checking it out as soon as I can.
Wil
Debra Jo Fondren has become a born-again Christian, and she no longer appears on behalf of Playboy. Does your doing this chat show mean you're still active in Playboy?
Patriciafarinlli
I'm not dead. :) I keep in touch and vice versa. I'm not active in Playboy and I'm not saying never...
Redwing
Hi Patricia! Thanks for joining us. Would you describe your typical day?
Patriciafarinlli
Hi Redwing! I get up at about 6:00 am, I get my boyfriend up and off to work. Then I wake up my son and we watch some TV. I then get him dressed and we go out around 11:00 and we go around and do different things. I also work one or two nights a week as a waitress.
It sounds kind of boring. Hopefully, I get to bed around eleven and then do the same thing again the next day. Oh yeah, I feed my rabbit every day too!
Patriciafarinlli
smiles.
moderator
You sorta answered this one but...
Tad
In "The Playmate Book," you said you would probably be married soon. Have those wedding bells rung yet?
Patriciafarinlli
No, not yet. One day...I've never been married.
Aaalooker
Hello Patricia, you mentioned that you did not pursue any more modeling, what did you pursue?
Patriciafarinlli
I pursued school for cosmetology and got my license. To be honest, my life was a big party for awhile. I used to go out dancing all the time, I used to be a jet setter. But I came back down to earth after a while.
Wil
Did you inherit your voluptuous figure from your Mom? Are there any other potential Playmates in your family?
Patriciafarinlli
Yes, I got my figure from my mother. No, no other Playmates in my family. I'm the only girl.
Wcwakai
Do you have a homepage on the web? Or, are you involved with the Playmate alumni group and their webpage?
Patriciafarinlli
No, I haven't done one yet. But I would love to learn how. I still have to send in my information regarding the Playmate Alumni Group, but I would love to be a part of it. It sounds like a really great thing.
Tad
What is your son's name?
Tad
Since you mentioned your rabbit, what is his/her name? Any other pets?
Patriciafarinlli
My son's name is Joshua and my rabbit's name, strangely enough, :) is Bunny. I had two Maltese's named Playmate and Bunny. Bunny is still alive and she's 10 years old.
Redwing
Patricia, do you prefer guys with or without beards?
Patriciafarinlli
It depends on the guy wearing it. I think I prefer without actually. Do you have a beard?
Wcwakai
What do you think of the photos in your pictorial? I think I recall your saying that you wanted to be able to show your grandchildren how good you looked when the pictorial was done, and the photos look great today compared to current Playmates!
Patriciafarinlli
I wasn't too happy with them because they emphasized my breasts so much in my opinion. I really liked them, but there was a few that I would have to say embarrassed me a little. I would show my grandchildren the centerfold though. But only if they ask me.
Wil
Do you look forward to having more children? Do you enjoy being a full-time Mom?
Patriciafarinlli
I love being a mother. More than anything!!! It's the most rewarding job I've ever had. But I don't think I will have any more children. I believe one is enough.
Roller
How would you have done the pictorial differently?
Patriciafarinlli
For one thing, I would have had my hair down. I also would not have been in a library, I'm not really a library person at all. I would have focused more of the pictures of me by the water, in the ocean, the real me. I've never worn my hair up, so I would have made the scenery fit ME a little better.
Aaalooker
Patricia, what do you enjoy in the area of outdoor activities?
Patriciafarinlli
I like to bicycle, I like shopping (outdoor malls count don't they?)...I go to the beach with my son. I've been trying to teach him how to swim.
Redwing
Patricia, what was your date with Burt Reynolds like?
Patriciafarinlli
Finally, someone asks!!! My date with Burt Reynolds started off with dinner, he had a couple of friends there. Afterwards he asked me to his place, and when we walked in, his dog Bruiser, had left umm, ok, he pooped on the carpet. I was oblivious to everything, because I WAS OUT WITH BURT REYNOLDS!!! He was so experienced and I was so young.
Another thing: I knew he had a toupee on and I had a fall (a hair extension) so I wouldn't let him touch my hair and I wouldn't touch his hair. It was an interesting night.
Redwing
Patricia, what is your favorite Soap?
Patriciafarinlli
I like "All My Children." I like Gloria right now. Ericka bugs me right now.
David2
What happened to the child you sponsored through the Christian Children's Fund?
Patriciafarinlli
You know, I have no idea.
Wil
Did you read Playboy when you were growing up?
Patriciafarinlli
I looked at the magazine. In fact my Mom used to have the centerfold of Mickey Garcia on the back of her door. I didn't actually read it. I looked at the pictures.
Redwing
Patricia, have you been to any high school reunions? If so what was the reaction like?
Patriciafarinlli
No high school reunions. I went to an all-girl Catholic high school. Who would want to go to an all-girl Catholic high school reunion???
Wil
How do you feel Playboy has changed since you were a Playmate?
Patriciafarinlli
The Playmates have gotten more beautiful! It has changed quite a bit. Back when I did it, the girls were more natural. Nowadays, it doesn't seem to matter how you got there. However, I do think that it's still a classy magazine.
moderator
Hey everyone, we've fewer than 10 minutes left so if you want to get a question in, now's the time!
Albertandmarina
Did you become friends with any other Playmates? Are you still in touch?
Patriciafarinlli
I've mentioned a few Playmates that I've become friends with. But I still keep in touch with Vicki Lassetter. She's a beautiful girl from Texas.
Redwing
Patricia, do you prefer being called Patricia, Patti or something else?
Patriciafarinlli
Good question! Nobody calls me Patricia, everyone calls me Patti. Thank you for asking, Redwing.
David2
Will you let your son know you were a Playmate when he's older? And will you let him read Playboy when he's old enough?
Patriciafarinlli
Yes, I will let him know I was a Playmate. I don't know if he will want to read it, but if he chooses to read it, of course he can. Whatever my son wants to do, I would love for him to do.
Redwing
Patricia, what did you think of the Playboy clubs?
Patriciafarinlli
I was only there a couple times. I thought the bunny costumes were cute. Too bad they didn't last.
Redwing
Patricia, do you collect anything or have any hobbies?
Patriciafarinlli
Joshua is my hobby!!
Patriciafarinlli
smiles.
Patriciafarinlli
I don't collect anything.
moderator
Okay, T-minus almost nothing. Let's get those last questions and goodbyes.
Ricky9
Are there any pictures of you in a bikini that we haven't seen?
Patriciafarinlli
No, I don't think there are any that you haven't seen. There aren't any recent pictures of me circulating.
Albertandmarina
It was great chatting with you. How can I get your autograph?
Patriciafarinlli
Thank you! You can write to: Playboy Promotions at 9242 Beverly Blvd., Beverly Hills, CA 90210. I would love to send you my autograph! Thank you for asking, I'm very flattered!
Ricky9
Thanks for doing the chat, I hope to see you and get a picture at Glamourcon in L.A. in September 97. Thank you.
Patriciafarinlli
Maybe I'll be there. I would love to see you there if I go.
Wcwakai
Thank you for doing the chat, and I hope you return to do this again!
Aaalooker
Good luck to you Patti!!
Roller
It was nice chatting with you......bye!
Patriciafarinlli
I love the Internet and being able to chat with you guys. I would love to come back some time to do this again. You all have been great. Hugs & kisses to you all!! God bless!
Patriciafarinlli
curtseys demurely.
moderator
