One of the biggest stars of adult films in the s, she allegedly died of AIDS in , but rumor has it she faked her death and is alive and well and married with children. Even her death date has been removed from her IMDB and Wikipedia profiles, and many claim to have seen pictures of her on Facebook.
Anyone know anything about her? She's still alive. The people at The Rialto Report confirmed it on their twitter some time ago. I heard they got in contact with her and she has no interest in talking about her past at this time. They have an old audio interview from the late 80s up on their site where interestingly she said she wanted to dispel rumors that she was dead, had 4 kids, ect.
She had great camera presence and some acting chops, she was a stand out from that era. Many of the female stars back then seemed to have more to them compared to most of the stars today. Much more real. R2 Thanks for that Twitter link. The Rialto Report is well-respected, so I'll believe it when they say she's alive. Has anyone found her on Facebook or seen current pictures of her?
She looks every bit her age, so I'm sure not people would recognize her as the former Lisa De Leeuw. Interestingly enough, she seems very liberal, so I wonder why she wants nothing to do with her past.
Could be family reasons, I suppose. She's married, has a grown child seems normal and happy and several other family members she seems close to. R7 Well, I don't know what her real name is, so it would be pretty hard for me to find her Facebook page, let alone link to it.
The question is, how do YOU know who she is and how did you find her page? Are you a friend or former co-star? Similarly, another actress from the same era, Lesllie Bovee, is also active on Facebook, though not under that name.
The Rialto Report had contacted her some years back about doing an interview, but said she had become very religious and so declined the opportunity to talk about her past. Lately on Facebook, though, Lesllie has been reconnecting with her former co-stars. She's still very religious, but she's also freely sharing stories with her fellow actors and actresses. In one exchange, she said she wasn't ashamed of her past. So maybe she's inching forward a little and will eventually consent to an interview.
Maybe the same will happen with Lisa. R8 I suspect she had self esteem problems because she was overweight somewhat as a teen and not the most conventionally beautiful. She once said in an interview that her mother told her she better learn some type of trade because she wasn't going to land a man on her looks alone. While that could be considered a positive comment by some, to someone unsecure, they could hurt quite a bit. I'm sure being called sexy and beautiful in being a popular porn star might have been why she stuck around in it for quite some time.
R9 It's definitely Lisa. She's older and heavier but not totally unrecognizable. She still wears that same necklace she wore in a lot of her movies and photo shoots. I discovered her real identity and facebook page within minutes after that a few years ago after she mistakenly connected her maiden name and current married name on pretty popular website I think she's since corrected this.
I wasn't the only person who caught it and found her. I also sent the link to her facebook profile The Rialto Report since they won't disclose private info and they confirmed it was her and she wasn't interested in talking. I always thought it odd that she contracted and passed from HIV. She did perform anal scenes but very few. Precedence always dictated that if a female porn star contracted HIV it was due to an anal scene with a male who was found to be HIV positive.
Perhaps this happened in her case. Let us hope not; I am happy to hear that she is alive and well. Yes, she is def alive and on FB and it surely looks like her but way older. Sure her husband and probably her daughter know. I tried to get them to send me a picture of Desirea Cousteau but they would not. I would also like to know what Bridget Monet looks like now even though I know who she is and such. Can anyone post a recent or fairly recent picture of Desirea or Bridget for curiousity?
Thanks Charlie Imus. She did the one film, then disappeared. No one knows what happened to her Is that her real last name? I had an FB whose last name was DeLeeuw. And these two sisters who lived in my town who wrote books for girls, IIRC.
The Bambi Woods thread has been shut down on comments today. I have posted some information in that thread on Data Lounge the last couple days and answered some questions. Regards,Charlie Imus. I recently found Desiree Cousteau also. Wasn't easy, however. She doesn't look much different than she did when she was in porn, other than being older obviously. She has done very well for herself personally and professionally, which is great to see!
R28 Haha. No only clothed shots since she works a regular job. She's had two kids since she was in porn, now college aged, so not sure how tight it might be now. I'd be shocked if no one has ever recognized her as being the former Desiree Cousteau because she look like an older version of what she looked like in porn.
Maybe it's true that most just pay attention to the body parts while watching porn. R30 Some gay men watch straight porn also I am one who does and there have been several discussions over the years about straight porn and porn stars also mostly male ones but some female ones as well.
R32 It is true. I didn't believe that rumor until I found her and saw that she actually was one because I heard several performers who worked with her talk about how "out there" she was and seemed to be very conflicted about what she was doing, but maybe the therapy she had really helped her and inspired her to help others.
Can you post a picture? I thought once I found it a couple years ago but was unsure. The Bambi Woods thread had a bunch of older and recent pics of other golden age xxx stars. What you say? I read the entire Bambi Woods thread and a year ago I read the story on amazon.
It seems hypocritical that people criticized the author for outing her and her family all the while giving information that they must have gotten directly from his e-book. Like I said I read it. Seems to me that there are sour grapes because they did not get the scoop first.
CDAN has a new, overly long blind item about a major new Hollywood film being made about a famous s porn star who later became an attorney and who helped the FBI bring down some major mob figures.
This movie is about one very specific female actress who was known mainly in the s era of porn. It is a biopic in that sense. But her fame was such in her time that she crossed over to more mainstream top-shelf publications, and even television interviews. Possibly the most beautiful all-American girl next door to ever have a hardcore career. If you're thinking it is former underage porn star you would be wrong. But she's a featured character in it too. Thing is, the star of the story disappeared.
Vanished into thin air after her last film. Not vanished dead, because she went on to have a different life. She went to law school, became an attorney, changed her name and had a nice family. Typical soccer mom, Sunday-school teacher, holly homemaker type.
Until a few years ago when she was contacted by people who represented the last big mafia family. They were looking to sell their holdings in porn to a legit media company for big bucks.
