Hello everyone and welcome to this evening's chat with Suzi Schott. Let's get the ball rolling...
Aaalooker
Hello Suzi, I would like to extend to you a warm welcome to the Cyber Club. :):)
Grant
Hello Suzi!
Suzischott
Hi everyone! It's great to be here!
Aaalooker
Would you please share with us how you became a Playmate?
Suzischott
I was working as a cocktail waitress in a bar on Rush Street in Chicago, and supporting myself while I was modeling. David Mecey came in with some friends and saw me. Actually, his friends asked him how he finds Playmates. He said that whenever he's out in public, he will approach a woman and give her his card. That's what he did to me.
So I went in the next day. I went and they took test shots in my bathing suit and then I did a small camera Playmate test. They test how they are going to do your centerfold.
Wil
Was your Mom really as blase' about your becoming a Playmate as your article indicated? How does your family feel about it now?
Suzischott
smiles.
Suzischott
Not really. I don't think she exactly knew what I was saying at first. My family has always been very supportive. In fact, I think my Mom was a little upset that I made her out that way.
David2
Evening Suzi. What have you been up to since your pictorial, and did you ever meet your ambition of getting married and raising a houseload of children?
Suzischott
Actually, I did some modeling afterwards. I met my husband, who is a pretty famous guitar maker, when he hired me as model. He was at a convention (NAMM) in New Orleans and he hired me to sign Playboy photos in his booth. I thought that he was trying to "play house with me" and I thought, "NO WAY." But then the next day we were playing house and we've been together for twelve years now.
I figured that a houseload of children would be a little to much, too tiring. Anyone with children would understand.
Suzischott
smiles.
Suzischott
I have three kids now, a five year old, a seven year old and a nine year old.
Gman
Hi Suzi! Since cloning of humans seems feasible in the future, who would you like to see cloned and why?
Suzischott
I don't want to see anybody cloned. I think that's a very scary concept.
Suzischott
shivers
Wil
How would you feel about your daughter's going into modeling?
Suzischott
Modeling, no. But if they came home and said they wanted to be a Playmate, I would say definitely go for it. I want them to make their own decisions, of course, but I would prefer them not to be a model. It's a long hard road and it's a lot of competition. I feel that there are so many other great things that they could do with their lives.
Aaalooker
Suzi, you said you liked fast cars, What is your favorite "Fast Car"?
Suzischott
My favorite is a Porsche 928, black, of course. That's the car my husband had when I met him!
Gman
How are you styling your hair nowadays ?
Suzischott
smiles.
Suzischott
Because I have naturally curly hair, I really don't have many options. It's just natural and crazy now.
Redwing
Suzi, do you prefer guys with or without beards?
Suzischott
It depends on what they're doing.....
Jae68
Do you have a web page outside of the Cyber club?
Suzischott
No, I don't. I am interested in creating one though!
Gman
Were you able to capitalize on your Playboy fame ... movies, modeling, etc ?
Suzischott
Probably not quite as much as other Playmates have. I think that it may have to do with not relocating to California.
Wil
Do you intend always to stay in the Chicago area?
Suzischott
I'm open to options. I wouldn't mind checking out another area. I've lived here all my life and I'm a pretty open minded person. I love living in the Chicago area!
Giovonni
Suzi, how differently do men treat you since you became a Playmate?
Suzischott
People really eye me up and down when they find out. :) I think some men assume that you're easy and some don't understand why I don't walk around naked. Men in general think it's pretty cool and want to talk to me about it. People are generally pretty nice.
Albertandmarina
Hi Suzi. Our friend Patty Reynolds (Sept. 65) met you a few months ago at a promo event. Any other Playmate friends?
Wil
Are you still in contact with them?
Suzischott
I love Patty! Now Carmen Berg is a Playmate friend. My old Playmate friends are Roberta Vasquez, Kimberly MacArthur, Kim Malin. I did the singing Playmates with them in Mexico. I'm still in contact with Patty and Carmen.
David2
If Playboy asked, would you be willing to pose again?
Suzischott
Maybe. I'm not sure, it would probably depend on the circumstances.
Diesel
Who do you think is one of the prettiest Playmates other than you?
Suzischott
How sweet! Marianne Gravette! I did a promotion with her in Dallas. She was a really shy girl.
Gman
Are you a Chicago Bulls and Bears fan?
Suzischott
I'm a Bulls fan, is there anybody that isn't a Bulls fan?
Suzischott
laughs hysterically.
Suzischott
I'm not a fan of the Bears, but I liked them back in 1985 when they were winning. I guess I'm not a very good fan.
Aaalooker
Suzi, do you still prefer chuckles over orgasms?
Suzischott
No! What was wrong with me for saying that!!! I don't know what I was thinking.
Suzischott
ponders thoughtfully.
Wil
Were you a Playboy fan before you became a Playmate?
Suzischott
No. But I've always appreciated beautiful women.
Ricky9
Because you have a little-girl face, are you still carded for I.D. at night spots?
Suzischott
No, I'm not. But as recently as five years ago, I wasn't.
Diesel
Are you still in perfect shape
Suzischott
Perfect is relative after three kids, don't you think?
Suzischott
smiles.
Suzischott
But I still get a lot of honks and stares from construction workers.
Gman
What is your diet like? Three squares a day? Inquiring minds want to know .... :)
Suzischott
Hmmm. Actually, I eat mostly vegetarian and then what my kids eat.
moderator
Referring, I suppose, "isn't everyone a Bulls fan?"...
Gman
Yep ... Carl "the Mailman" Malone and Dave Stockton
Wil
Are your children aware that you were a Playmate? If not, when will you tell them?
Suzischott
They will be in a few days! Yes, they are aware of them. In fact I had to tell my son to stop telling all of his friends. His teacher called me. They think it's really cool that I appeared in Playboy, but I don't get into detail with them.
Jae68
What was the best and the worst thing about being a Playmate?
Suzischott
The best thing was that everything about it was great! The worst thing was when all the publicity and other things ended. I'm still having fun as being a Playmate. The fun never ends.
Wil
Will you be at the Chicago Glamourcon? Any other shows?
Suzischott
No plans for that. My kids keep me very busy, so I don't think I would have the time. :(
Gman
Are you George Clooney crazy like a lot of other women I know?
Suzischott
No. I'm not. But I'm sure that after I see "Batman," he's going to be pretty sexy!
Suzischott
smiles.
Gman
Who is your favorite current actor ?
Suzischott
I don't like having favorites of anything except for German chocolate cake!
Redwing
Suzi, what is "Mom's" turkey dressing like? Do you have it often?
Suzischott
No, I don't. I'm not much of a cook. My mom doesn't live near me so she doesn't get to make it for me much.
Wil
Are there any other potential Playmates in your family?
Suzischott
Oh, yes. Two...my daughters!
Gman
Does your husband make acoustic or electric guitars?
Suzischott
Electric. He's so cool! He used to have a factory. He used to make guitars for the Cars and the Doobie Brothers. And he made the famous ZZ Top spinning fur guitars.
David2
Are there any changes you've noticed between the Playmates ten years ago and those of today?
Suzischott
The ones of today seems to have more sculptured bodies. They used to be more rounded and curvy.
Gman
Doesn't your husband make guitars anymore?
Suzischott
No, he doesn't. I wish he would.
Aaalooker
Were you as pretty in high school, as you were in you photos? Are were you a late bloomer?
Suzischott
I think I was a late bloomer. I think I looked the same in high school. People always told me I should go into modeling. I heard it enough times that I decided to pursue it. I thought I was going to be in high fashion modeling, but I ended up working for Playboy which turned out to be great.
Wil
Did you like your centerfold and the other photos in your pictorial?
Suzischott
I don't really like them anymore. I think that I could have looked much better. People always tell me that I look better in person. I don't think that they caught me at my best.
Jae68
Have you ever been to the Mansion? What was it like in 1984?
Suzischott
Yes, I have. It wasn't the wild party atmosphere that everyone thought it was. I actually got kind of bored.
There was one night where a bunch of celebrities came over for a party and that was fun. The parties weren't as frequent as I thought they would be. It was really fun, like I said, to meet all of the celebrities.
Gman
What are some of the most memorable celebrities you've dated ?
Suzischott
I've never dated a celebrity. The nicest, friendliest guy I met was Dick VanPatton. He was so sweet. I told him that I used to watch his show "Eight Is Enough" and he was very flattered about it. He wanted to know which was my favorite episode.
Giovonni
Suzi, are you 'into' computers or is this your first foray into the 'net'?
Suzischott
I play games a lot with my kids. I've been on the Internet a little bit. I would love to learn more. My husband is the master of the computer in my house.
moderator
Only about 10 minutes left so get that question you've been rewriting to perfection in now, before time runs out.
David2
Is there anything in particular you would change in your pictorial?
Suzischott
I would change my clothing and my hairstyles. I would make the clothing a little more seductive and the hair a little more wild. Because that's what I was really like then.
Redwing
Suzi, what is the best advise you were given?
Suzischott
I'll have to think about this one.
Suzischott
You know what, I don't think I can answer this one. Sorry. :(
Aaalooker
Suzi, will you be posting often to the news groups on the Cyber Club? We sure hope so !! :):)
Suzischott
I would love to!
Gman
Do you still get fan mail? Do you still want fan mail?
Suzischott
Yes, and yes. It's fun. I like to hear from all of you guys!
Wil
Did you get much fan mail? Did everyone spell your name right?
Suzischott
I think a lot of people confused me with Susie Scott. I didn't get a ton of fan mail. Enough for enjoyable reading, though.
moderator
Just checked my watch and we're out of time. Send in your closing comments and questions for Suzi.
Gman
When vacationing, do you prefer the mountains or the beaches
Suzischott
I prefer the mountains. I love to snow ski. I like going to Vail.
Jae68
If you could only do one more thing, what would it be?
Suzischott
If I could do one more thing, I would be a Playmate all over again. It was such great fun.
Jae68
Thanks for chatting with us Suzi! You were great. Will you do it again?
