Debra Jo Fondren (born February 5, 1955)[1] is an American model and actress. She was Playboy magazine's Playmate of the Month for the September 1977 issue and Playmate of the Year for 1978. Her pictorial was photographed by Robert Scott Hooper.


Fondren, who lived in Lumberton, Texas, and was working as a waitress at Gallagher's (a steakhouse, now closed and still boarded up) in Beaumont, Texas, was discovered on a visit to Las Vegas by photographer Robert Scott Hooper, who also photographed her centerfold, featuring her very long hair.[1][2] Fondren had guest-star roles on TV series such as Mork & Mindy and Fantasy Island. She also appeared in movies such as Spit Fire. In 2007, she returned home to the Lumberton/Silsbee, Texas, area, having stated she had enough of the California lifestyle and now operates a beauty school in her home area.[3]
