A funny story. During the 80s I had several Heather Thomas posters in my bedroom. I had a friend who insisted that he had the issue of Playboy in which she was nude. I asked to see it a couple times but he never produced it. Now with t3h interw3b I have found NO EVIDENCE that she ever did such a spread. Moral of the story? Never lie. You never know when the truth might come out.
These are some of my fav pics of her.
