Debbie Does Dallas - The Bambi Woods Interview: Final Thoughts

200705172145
Over the last few days we've told the story of our exclusive interview with Bambi Woods (here, here and here) one of the most famous adult movie actresses of all time, due to her starring role in the original "Debbie Does Dallas". After a brief period of infamy, she retired to a life of obscurity, marrying and raising children, and living happily ever after.

The interview itself was carried out over the course of multiple emails, and while I have - at her request - held back a few details that may have allowed people to locate and track her down, most of what I know is here in the story.

Where are they now? Bambi Woods, star of Debbie Does Dallas - revealed!

200705172123
Debbie Does Dallas. It's one of the top five grossing porn films of all time, and probably one of the most well known movies titles in any genre. Released hot on the heels of Deep Throat and The Devil in Miss Jones, it blazed a trail that took it into pop culture legend, and has made it's distributors hundreds of millions of dollars in profit. It's spawned sequels, homages, remakes, documentaries, and even an off-broadway musical. It's also the subject of one of the most popular YesButNoButYes stories of all time - Where are they now - Debbie Does Dallas. And it's made Bambi Woods, the titular actress with the blonde hair and the girl-next-door looks into one of the most famous porn stars ever. And probably it's most enigmatic.

Because it's one of the great mysteries of the adult movie industry - whatever happened to Bambi Woods, who is said to have mysteriously disappeared soon after the movie was made? During the making of the 2005 documentary Debbie Does Dallas Uncovered, a team from Britain's Channel Four interviewed as many cast members as they could find, checked police records - even hired a private investigator - all in an attempt to track down the woman who played Debbie. And failed. Pretty miserably.

Since then, the true story of Bambi has gone untold. Dark rumors surround her fate - her Wikipedia entry says she may have died from a drug overdose in 1986, or during the making of a "Debbie" sequel, or that she even retired into obscurity, saved from a life of porn by her parents.

But nobody has ever told the real story.

Until now.

Beginning Monday, YesButNoButYes.com is proud to present a world exclusive - a full interview with the actress who played Debbie herself, Bambi Woods. She talks to me about her early life, the making of the movie and it's sequel, of the late 70s drug scene in New York, of celebrity boyfriends and swingers' clubs, and tells us exactly what she's been up to for the last 20 years. And believe it or not, there's a happy ending.

It's the story we've waited two years to write. And it's only here, at YesButNoButYes.com - getting closer to being the best pop culture blog on the planet with every story. Tell all your friends.

Where Are They Now: Third Wave Ska

mighty.jpg

Sandwiched in between the dying Seattle grunge scene and a just born boy band/pop music scene, Third Wave Ska had it's time in the sun. For a few short years in the late 90's, Ska had hit the mainstream and all seemed right in the world.

Where Are They Now -Porn Stars IV

YBpornstars.png
I had considered this series complete with three volumes, but requests have trickled in steadily. So after regrouping, I began my research anew to find whatever happened to your favorite adult film stars. It’s not easy, because a lot of former porn stars (understandibly) do not want to be found. But I rounded up another eleven!
