#41 Victoria Vetri

Victoria Vetri was your typical Playmate turned B movie babe until something went wrong … very wrong. Under the heading “Legal Difficulties,” Victoria’s Wikipedia entry explains:

Vetri was charged with attempted murder after allegedly shooting [husband Bruce] Rathgeb from close range inside the Hollywood apartment they were then sharing after an argument on Saturday, October 16, 2010. The Los Angeles Police Department’s Hollywood Division arrested Vetri the same day, and she was jailed on $1.53 million bail, which the judge refused to reduce, pending trial. In January of 2011, the same judge denied her attorney's request for a reduction of the charge of attempted murder, and she was ordered to stand trial on that charge. However, between January and September of 2011, the charge against Vetri was reduced to attempted voluntary manslaughter, to which she eventually pleaded no contest. The judge sentenced her to nine years in state prison.

The National Inquirer adds that “the couple were both high on methamphetamine and had been drinking at the time of the incident.” Sounds like my kind of gal!
