1980s siren Kitaen dies at 59


Actress and 1980s pin-up Tawny Kitaen died Friday at age 59, in Newport Beach, Calif. No cause of death has been released. The former model starred in the films Bachelor Party opposite Tom Hanks, The Perils of Gwendoline and After Midnight, but she is perhaps best known for her roles in the Whitesnake videos Is This Love and Here I Go Again. Kitaen (whose real name is Julie) wed Whitesnake singer David Coverdale in 1989, but the marriage lasted only two years. She was also married to baseball star Chuck Finley — the father of her two daughters, Wynter and Raine.
