The Tale Of Two Foxes!
Yes, that was my longest story title ever, but there’s hilarious reason!
Meet Samantha Fox!
Some of you know her as she looks in that blue swimsuit…and some of you know her by this photo in the red leather dress:
That’s Right: There Are TWO Samantha Foxes!
When I posted the story of the dark-haired Adult Film Actress above, I was immediately inundated with people saying they didn’t know her – instead, they were very familiar with THIS Samantha Fox:
Meet Samantha Karen Fox – born 15 April 1966.
She is NOT a 70’s Adult Film Star.
No, she’s a very popular Singer, Actress and Model from England!
Don’t worry, this Samantha Fox had quite the provocative career as well!
She grew up in England, and became famous at a very young age.
Online bios say that her parents gave their consent for her to appear topless in The Sun’s Page 3 in 1983.
She then signed a four-year Page 3 modeling contract, and won its “Page 3 Girl of the Year” award for three consecutive years: 1984 to 1986.
She became known as one of the most photographed women in Britain in the 80’s, appearing seemingly everywhere!
Fox was on a wide variety of magazine covers, most notably Playboy, and her photo shoots were always gorgeously done.
In 1986, Samantha launched a pop music career!
Here debut single was called “Touch Me ( I Want Your Body)” – which went to #1 sun 17 countries!
She ended up with a string of his songs!
Fox also had success in the US, with a string of top 10 songs there as well – another career highlight for the unstoppable force!
Critics responded well to her music as well.
In 1988, Fox got a Brit Award nomination for Best British Female Artist.
From that point on, she’s been in films and a variety of TV shows.
In 1990, she appeared on the American TV sitcom “Charles In Charge” as a fictional rock star.
Her film career includes decades of roles, from “The Match” in 1999 to the wacky series “Sharknado 5: Global Swarming” in 2017!
In 2003, Fox made a statement about her personal life:
“I have slept with other women but I’ve not been in love before Myra Stratton. People say I’m gay. All I know is that I’m in love with Myra [Stratton, my manager]. I love her completely and want to spend the rest of my life with her.”
In 2009, she announced her plans to form a civil union with Stratton, who sadly died in 2015 of cancer…
Bravo to Samantha Fox for the terrific career, but to go back to how this story began.
I confused many people when I posted my profile of Samantha Fox recently – when I used this photo of her:

The UK Sam Fox was literally everywhere back then. Her singing was taken seriously by her fans, but not so much by music fans like me! 🙂
Best wishes, Pete.
