Why did Connie Sellecca's career go straight down the shitter?

She once had such a promising career!

Hotel burned down. Is she still married to John Tesh?

by Anonymousreply 110/13/2020

Yes she is, but Toyota stopped making the car they named for her.

I don't think she has to worry about getting her tail to the set at 5 am anymore. Tesh is worth many millions...

Miss her Lifetime-type TV movies where she'd fight the terrorists or be a scientist with an asteroid hurtling toward earth.

How the hell does John Tesh have millions?

by Anonymousreply 310/13/2020

Because he had a long career on a successful show, R3?

by Anonymousreply 410/13/2020

R3 he has sold millions of new age albums and tours his music

I think they also have a nationally syndicated radio show. I’m sure that is a fairly lucrative revenue stream.

Before John Tesh, she was married to hunky Gil Gerard.

She was too Jesus-y.

Her stunning lack of talent could be the reason!

John Tesh has a weirdly shaped head, like Chris Meloni and Bert the muppet.

John Tesh has apparently made a staggering amount of money off of his music.

She was so pretty.

If she were around now, they’d have her be a platinum blonde. Sometimes dark hair is better with blue eyes, but every frau wants to be a blonde.

Wait, is she alive or dead?

by Anonymousreply 1410/13/2020

Dead R14. John Tesh killed her by forcing her to listen to his music in a locked room

When did John divorce Mary Hart and hook up with this floozy?

by Anonymousreply 1610/13/2020

R16 Mary Hart is a cunt. No wonder Tesh dumped her ass

John Tesh and Oprah fucking. That's not a mental picture I wanted.

She did that P.S. I Luv You show around 1991-1992 with Greg Evigan. The show bombed.

This is why I come here. If there is one person on the planet checking for Connie Sellecca, of course it's someone on the Datalounge.

It's amazing who you hear about on DL. Obscure actresses from decades ago you've either never heard of or nobody's thought about in ages. I had to look up Connie Selleca, and I vaguely remember her from my childhood.

Yep, she's a whore, darlin'.

her dedicated one of his albums to her but referred to her as ‘Constanza’ or ‘Concetta’ (can’t remember which one) which seemed very off-brand for her, like he was talking about a different person. I didn’t realize she was so ethnic.

Totally got her confused with Sela Ward and Daphne Zuniga.

She had a clothing collection named after her at Montgomery Ward, her picture was on every hang tag on those polyester garments.

R34 I was surprised to learn she’s from The Bronx! She and Tesh didn’t have sex until they were married (supposedly)

In some early pics I mix her up with Veronica Hamel. But that one was taller, and a much more successful model than Sellecca before they both turned to acting.

Omg - this made me think of an 80’s era made for TV movie about the Hawaiian airlines flight where the roof ripped off mid-flight. Connie played the female copilot that helped save and land the plane.

Her career went out the roof with the stewardess.

R43 Well, she was no Sully Sullenberger!

by Anonymousreply 4510/14/2020

[quote]She and Tesh didn’t have sex until they were married (supposedly)

Her rationale was that she had told her son that he should abstain from sex until marriage. She thought it would be hypocritical to engage in premarital sex herself. I think they both should have been getting laid, but I respect the discipline in her reasoning.

by Anonymousreply 4610/14/2020

Waiting until marriage, my god. What if the guy has a tiny dick? What if he's a lousy lay? What a terrible thing to wait for.

Oh, that's right. If you don't wait until marriage God and Jesus will be very angry with you and do something bad.

My cousin was a PA for John and Connie in the late 90s. He said John was nice but Connie was “the C word”. I never thought I’d hear my born again cousin come that close to saying “cunt”.

by Anonymousreply 4810/14/2020

In toto, to answer OP’s question, Connie Sellecca was a very pretty TV actress with little discernible personality.

She did very mainstream, undemanding shows in her heyday.

Hollywood has always needed some safe, non threatening starlets like her on hand, willing to take a backseat to the male lead.

Oddly R58, she may or may not be. Tesh is definitely Republican through and through, but as late as the mid-1990s (granted, nearly 30 years ago), she was still a Democrat, giving press articles about them the old "She's a Dem, he's do they make it work?" angle.
