You heard it here first. Vanda (pronounced like Vawnda) is talking about posing for Playboy. She is leveraging her 15 minutes (or 1 photo in this case) into a spread, er um, photo spread. For a refresher on her photo of fame see the blog story here. In addition to the usual facebook and myspace entries of someone who is in her early 20s, she now has a web site www.vandapurvis.com where the title is “I know my way around guns”. Gotta love a self promoter. But, she is also outspoken. In response to the stories about the gun photo incident in the Austin American Statesman, Vanda said on 8/25/09:
“My name is Vanda Purvis better known as the waitress pictured above “Bambi.” I grew up around guns, my whole life I’ve owned weapons. I am an expret marksman and as a matter of fact, I own my own AR15…(I think every Texas girl should!) the exact gun I am pictured with. Its sad that off duty, unintoxicated, gentleman can’t come and have a good time without things blowing wayyyyy out of proportion. They have an extremely tough profession and lets be honest, if they handed that gun to the Mayor for a picture this wouldn’t be news but because they handed it to little blonde me, everyone is all up in arms over it. BOLOGNA!! Go to my facebook, myspace or vandapurvis.com…. this is not the first picture I’ve taken with a gun.”
So when will this loaded photo shoot take place and be published in Playboy? No dates have leaked out but as soon it does, it’ll trigger a mention here in this blog. In the meantime, enjoy these pictures (from the web site policelink.com – honest).
Vanda has more pictures on her Picasa web album, so to see more of her and guns, click here.
