If you’re Gen X, you’ll probably best remember Tawny Kitane from that White Snake video where she rolls around the hood of a car.
Sadly, Tawny has died – and she was only 59-years-old.
Tawny had a glamourous, but very rocky life. She did struggle a lot with addiction, which has been documented throughout her life.
TMZ is reporting that Tawny Kitaen, the actress who starred in “Bachelor Party” and whose personal life was filled with radical ups and downs, has died … TMZ has learned.
Kitaen died in Newport Beach Friday.
Kitaen, whose credits include ‘The Perils of Gwendoline’ and “After Midnight,” was a precocious child who got the showbiz bug at 14, when she saw Peter Frampton at Balboa Stadium in San Diego. She got a backstage pass and saw the All-Access VIP treatment Peter’s GF, Penny, received, and that was it. She was hooked.
Tawny started out on a game show back in 1976 — “To Tell the Truth.” She migrated into movies and achieved some success with her roles, especially “Bachelor Party.”
And, Tawny famously was featured in some music videos, notably Whitesnake’s “Is This Love,” and “Here I Go Again.”
Tawny’s personal life was rocky. She married Whitesnake’s lead singer, David Coverdale, back in 1989, but the marriage only lasted 2 years. She went on to marry baseball star Chuck Finley — with whom she had 2 daughters — and the end of that relationship proved disastrous. Finley claimed she repeatedly kicked him in the face with her high heels and she was charged with domestic violence. Those charges were later dismissed. He filed for divorce 3 days later.
As of right now, there has been no cause of death determined.
