Elisa Rebeca Bridges (May 24, 1973 – February 7, 2002) was an American actress and model. She is Playboy magazine's Playmate of the Month for December 1994, and Playboy's Video Playmate of the Month for September 1996. She appeared in several video productions from Playboy Home Video from 1996 to 2000. She also appeared as a model for Perfect 10. She was born in Miami and raised in Houston.
Bridges died at the California mansion of Edward Nahem, a longtime acquaintance of Hugh Hefner. Nahem found Bridges dead in bed when he came home one evening. Although Playboy stated that she died of natural causes, the official coroner's report listed her cause of death as "acute intoxication by the combined effects of heroin, methamphetamine, meperidine and alprazolam".
