Donna Edmondson, Playboy’s Miss November 1986, was born in Greensboro, North Carolina. She attended the University of North Carolina and received a real estate license before sending a few photos to Playboy on a whim. Donna was named Playmate of the Month in November 1986 and went on to become Playmate of the Year 1987.
Donna’s Playboy profile revealed that she was a virgin, which attracted a lot of media attention, including mentions by Joan Rivers and Larry King. Donna told Playboy her turn-ons include “the beach, pasta, foreign cars, animals (especially cats) and being with my family.” She’s turned off by “people who lie and take advantage of others, drugs and divorce.” After posing for Playboy, Donna was featured in several Playboy video documentaries and Special Editions. She lives in her hometown with her husband and three children.
What was Donna’s most embarrassing moment? She told Playboy, “I was swimming in the ocean and a very rude wave took my top off. I spent the next hour searching for it.”
