Jeane Manson, born Jean Ann Manson, (born October 1, 1950 in Cleveland, Ohio) is an American model, singer, and actress. She was Playboy magazine's Playmate of the Month for the August 1974 issue. Her centerfold was photographed by Dwight Hooker.

She had a few film roles before she was a Playmate, and moved to France soon after she appeared in Playboy. Performing under the name Jeane Manson, she became a recording artist in Europe. Her albums have covered several genres, from pop to gospel and country. Jean also has hosted several television specials in France and had a regular role on the long-running prime time soap Riviera. She represented Luxembourg in the 1979 Eurovision Song Contest in Jerusalem, achieving 13th place for her song J'ai déjà vu ça dans tes yeux.

Personal life[edit]

Manson has been married to four times: to Dave Ghormley in 1968, to French-Israeli film producer André Djaoui in the 1970s, to American actor Robert Viharo in 1981, and to French actor Richard Berry in 1984. She has two children: Jennifer Djaoui, born 1978, and Marianne, born 1988, the daughter of journalist Allain Bougrain-Dubourg.[1]
