From the moment I saw her face on the Classy Curl box, I knew that would not be the end of the road for this lady. The next time I saw her she was co-starring in the “Thriller” video with Michael Jackson. Beautiful, sassy, and looking 80’s chic, Ola Ray was the chick to envy, I know I would’ve KILLED to be next to Michael back then. I totally wanted to own that jean outfit she rocked in the video. It is rumored that Ola got her start in porno movies, I certainly wish I knew which ones. It is true however, that she was Playboy Magazine’s Playmate of the Month in June 1980. Before and after the Thriller video, Ola had small parts in several big budget films such as Beverly Hills Cop II, 10 to Midnight (a great film), and Fear City. I last saw Ola on an episode of VH1-‘s “I Love The 80’s” show and she still looked great! Ola Ray resides in Sacramento, CA and is currently looking to revive her singing career.
UPDATE 12/8/06: I have found a video of the original Classy Curl commercial with Ola Ray. You Tube is the devil I swear haha!
