Question: What three-man rap group starred in Disorderlies?


Last Question: In Bachelor Party, who played Tom Hanks’ character’s bride-to-be?

Answer: Tawny Kitaen

Tawny Kitaen began her acting career in 1983 with a minor role in the television movie, Malibu. In 1984, Kitaen played Tom Hanks’ bride-to-be in Bachelor Party. The only other movie of note she was in was the starring role in the 1986 horror movie Witchboard.

Tawny Kitaen became more known as being associated with the glam metal scene. It started when her legs appeared on the cover of Ratt’s self-titled album.
Then, in ripped-up clothes, she appeared on the cover of Ratt’s Out of the Cellar. She also can be seen at the beginning of the Ratt video “Back for More” as the girl in the 50s-style skirt at the juke box.

In addition to the legendary “Here I Go Again” video, Kitaen also appeared in Whitesnake’s videos for “Is This Love” and “Still of the Night.” In 1989, she appeared in video for “The Deeper the Love.”

She was co-host of America’s Funniest People with Dave Coulier from 1992 to 1994. But, then Tawny Kitaen became a mess. She was married to baseball pitching star Chuck Finley. In 2002, Kitaen was charged with committing domestic violence against him. Three days later, Finley filed for divorce. After a plea bargain, Kitaen agreed to “enter a spousal battery counseling program and avoid contact with Finley.” The couple was married for five years and have two daughters, Wynter and Raine.

Kitaen was one of the cast of the sixth edition of The Surreal Life, a reality television show on VH1, which began airing in March 2006.

In November 2006, prosecutors charged Kitaen with possessing 15 grams of cocaine in her San Juan Capistrano home in Orange County. They said her two children were home at the time, and Kitaen had given deputies permission for the search. In December 2006, she entered a six-month rehabilitation program in exchange for the dismissal of a felony drug possession charge.

Then in 2008, Kitaen appeared on the VH1 reality TV show Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew. Shockingly, the show does not seem to help the celebrities that go there! On September 26, 2009, Kitaen was arrested for driving under the influence in Newport Beach, California.
