I will happily acknowledge this...I'm a Julie McCullough fan! I've had a very (well, semi-) innocent crush on her since her Playboy centerfold days, and my respect for her has grown, over the years. Not only is she beautiful, and a very funny lady, but she is a survivor of the cutthroat entertainment industry, a gifted poet, actress, and entrepreneur, a surprisingly eloquent spokesperson for Playboy, and one of the nicest, most down-to-earth people you'd ever meet!
Stripped of her crown as Azalea Queen of Wilmington, NC's Azalea Festival because of her appearance as a Playboy magazine centerfold
Fired from the TV series, "Growing Pains" after appearing in a nude Playboy pictorial.
Played on a basketball team with actor Casper Van Dien for many years and they have remained good friends.
Won Outstanding Achievement in Poetry and Poet Of Merit Awards from The International Society of Poets in Washington, DC in August 2005 and has six poems being published in a poetry book called "Eternal Portraits". The poems are: 'The Mask', 'Being Mrs Sutcliffe', 'The Last Battle Cry', 'A Bunny Tale', 'A Prayer for Laz' and 'Carolina Gold'
Did a 50-city tour of the USA as a Playboy Bunny in 2004 and is the tutorial voice of "The Playboy Mansion Game"
Stars in the play "Pajama Tops" in the same role that another actress/playmate June Wilkinson starred in on Broadway many years ago. It's a French farce from 1945.
"(Julie) McCullough appeared as a regular character in the hit American television series "Growing Pains" in 1989 until 1990."
"The 1989–1990 season was retconned out of existence as a dream of Mike Seaver's after Kirk Cameron insisted that new castmate Julie McCullough be fired for posing for Playboy magazine. Cameron later apologized for his actions. The previous season had ended on a cliffhanger in which Mike asked Julie to marry him. Initially the character of Julie abandoned Mike at the altar; there was a backlash by fans and she was brought back later to reconcile. McCullough did not find out she was being fired until showing up to film what she thought was a wedding episode."
