Kathy Shower, Playboy’s Miss May 1985, was 33 when she was named Playmate of the Month, making her the oldest Playmate at the time. She went on to be named Playmate of the Year 1986. Kathy was born in Brookville, Ohio. She began her acting career in New York and got her big break in a Broadway production of The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas before moving to Los Angeles to pursue a film and television career.
In 1985 Kathy told Playboy her ambitions were “to expand my career as a professional television and commercial actress into major feature films.” After posing for Playboy, she appeared in several Playboy video documentaries. Her acting career includes roles on the TV shows Three’s Company, CHiPs, Simon & Simon, Airwolf, Knight Rider, and Santa Barbara. She also appeared in many movies including The Further Adventures of Tennessee Buck and L.A. Goddess.
Kathy’s turn-ons include “perfumed baths, men who make me laugh and love, cuddling, sleep—or staying awake with the right man.” She’s turned off by “profanity, untidiness, arrogance, and men who say all the right things for the wrong reasons.” Her ideal evening? “Going to bed with a good book or a man who has just read one.”
