RAQUEL WELCH

"I couldn't stand that my husband was being unfaithful. I am Raquel Welch - understand?"

My first exposure to Raquel Welch was via an old comic book ad with the headline, "Sleep With Raquel Welch".  They were selling an inflatable pillow with her picture on it for $1.99.  I didn't think much about her after that, until I saw her in the film "Kansas City Bomber" where she played a sexy Roller Derby Queen.  She was something fantastic indeed.  And when she guest starred on an episode of "Mork and Mindy" as an Evil Alien Queen, it was about all I could bear.  Though many give Jennifer Lopez and Salma Hayek for being the most prominent Hispanic beauty queens around, it's Raquel who deserves credit for being one of original actresses of Hispanic descent to make it big (her real name is Jo Raquel Tejada). .
