Teresa "Teri" Susan Weigel (born February 24, 1962) is an American pornographic actress, fashion and nude model and Playboy Playmate.

Early life[edit]

Weigel was born in Fort Lauderdale, Florida[2] and grew up in Deerfield Beach, Florida.[3] She began modeling while in her teens, appearing in the Saks Fifth Avenue catalog among other venues.[3]

Career[edit]

She appeared on the cover of the November 1985 issue of Playboy, and then was the Playboy Playmate for April 1986. Weigel also appeared in a number of Playboy videos. She subsequently had several minor roles in mainstream film, including Predator 2 and Marked for Death, and made several appearances as "Jade" on Married... with Children. She was also the second Playmate to go on to appear in Penthouse magazine, after Ursula Buchfellner, November 1985.[citation needed] She worked for a time at the Bunny Ranch Nevada brothel until September 1998.[4]

Weigel was in a severe car accident in August 1990, in which she suffered severe neck and back injuries that required five operations.[5] Unable to work for four months due to her injuries, she and her husband, Murrill Maglio, were forced to sell their home and move into an apartment. During production on a nude video that was one of Weigel's last projects for Playboy, a co-worker suggested doing adult movies in order to earn money. Though initially dismissive of the idea, Weigel, considering her dwindling career options, eventually reconsidered. Weigel and Maglio spoke to their neighbors, Fred and Patti Lincoln, who produced adult films.[6]

Her first film was Inferno in 1991, in which she costarred with Marc Wallice.[5] According to Weigel and Maglio, they do not see Weigel's sexual intercourse with other men as a problem because of the security of their relationship. Maglio has had minor, non-sexual roles in some of her films. To enhance her career viability, Weigel underwent breast augmentation, enlarging her breasts to 36 double-D's. Though she was the first Playboy among the 450 who have appeared in the magazine to cross over into porn, the publisher terminated its relationship with her, as Playmates who do porn are no longer allowed to represent the company.[5] Weigel's new career also hurt her relationship with her family, as her parents stopped speaking to her by 1992.[6]

In 2000, Playboy sued Weigel over her use of the Playboy logo on her website.[5]

In 2005, Weigel was one of many porn actors inducted into the AVN Hall of Fame at the AVN Awards, the major industry awards show held annually in Las Vegas.

Personal life[edit]

She has been married to Murrill Maglio since December 1986.[6]
