Stellaaaaaa!!!! (Stevens, That Is)

Posted By on Tue, Sep 4, 2007 at 4:00 AM

List all the true celebrities from Memphis -- living ones, we mean -- and these days only a few names come to mind: Justin Timberlake, Cybill Shepherd, Kathy Bates, and ... uh, did we mention Justin Timberlake?

But it's a shame that a pinup girl from Memphis by the name of Estelle Eggleston has sort of dropped beneath the radar, because she was a very hot commodity in the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, and — to many of her fans — even today.

We are referring to the TV and movie actress known (after changing her name a bit) as Stella Stevens, who starred in movies with Jerry Lewis, Elvis Presley, and other stars of the day, and is perhaps best known as the prostitute with the heart of gold who wandered all over the sunken ship in a shirt and panties in The Poseidon Adventure.

Well, we’re happy to report that Stella is alive and well, living in California. She recently introduced her own line of perfume, called simply "Sexy," published a novel (Razzle Dazzle), and also sells autographed publicity photos of herself, among other ventures. We recommend a look at ALL the photos, and are especially intrigued by the group of recent shots that she describes as "a fantasy of lingerie and handguns."

Check them out, along with a whole lot of other Stella Stevens news, on her official website.
