Vanda Purvis at Twin Peaks Photo Shoot recently

Vanda Purvis (aka Bambi from Twin Peaks scandalous gun photo) is seen here doing a photo shoot for a Twin Peaks promo, and posing for the 2010 Pin Up Girl calendar.    The photo shoot was done at a location in Deep Ellum, Dallas.  Vanda is a real sweetie, full of spunk and personality.

Round Rock Update: Vanda, aka “Bambi”, Appearing on Inside Edition

While attending Bikers Night at Twin Peaks Round Rock on Thursday night, the word from the waitresses was that Vanda has done her Inside Edition TV show interview. No confirmation from Inside Edition, Vanda or Twin Peaks officially yet. Calls to Midland Sherrif’s department to inquire if they were appearing also on the show were not returned.

Stay tuned,

Update – looks she did the interview and it was aired on Sep 1, 2009.   Not much of an interview, but here is what I found:  Inside Edition

Name Badges: Bambi, G.I. Jane and more

Notice how each girl has a badge with their name and where they are from?  Most are not that interesting as far as location – like Dallas, Bedford, Austin, etc.  Now and then you might get an interesting one such as Russia (Roxxy in Addison e.g.).  Most of the names are their real names but sometimes they are not – such as G.I. Jane!   G.I. Jane said something about she always liked that moniker and thus the name selection.

GI Jane

Personally, I am glad that they names are not “stripper” stage names such as Amber, or Crystal, or whatever the name du jour is these days at stripper clubs.     Yet, you will see a preponderence of Bambi name badges.   Underneath, it says “in training”, which is either an attempt to apologize for the generic stripper name, or to be easy on her for mistakes, or for sympathy tips?     What you may not know is that they are required to wear a name tag (takes about 3 days or so after they complete training).  If they show up without a name tag then they are given the Bambi name tag to wear for the day which the girls hate to do if they are not in training.    Perhaps this is the way for management to encourage them to remember to bring their badge.

So the next time you are there, look at the name badge.   Ask if it is their real name.  Ask about their home town if they are from an oddly distant place.   Or, if they are a Bambi and not obviously in training (following another waitress around) razz them if they forgot their badge.   But whatever you do, don’t come back with the tiresome line of  “hey Bambi nice to meet you, I’m Thumper”.
