I don't know her name but she did-it 4 me back then~ Perhaps Prince found her the same place he found the Mad House woman~

I can't recall her name but I do recall an interview with her in Right On! Magazine. She said that Prince was really nice to her and telling jokes and that he fell a couple of times on purpose to make her feel better. She had slipped on the floor which was extremely shiny and slippery in her pumps and she was embarrased.

Peace, Serveitupfrankie*

Dang, I forgot her name too. But I got Maneca's name right from memory on the Madhouse Girl thread, so I should at least get a lovely consolation prize.

Nope it's not the Madhouse girl in the Kiss video.

From Uptown Magazine #26

"I remembered seeing Kadeem Hardison [co-star of the since-canceled television program A Different World] co-hosting with Patti LaBelle on the TV show that used to be called Friday Night Videos - I found the tape of November 3, 1990 - and sure enough, before showing the "Kiss" video, Hardison says he knew the girl dancing, she is a friend of his and her name is Monique Manning."

Yes her name is Monique Mannen and she had bit parts in Graffiti Bridge and Spike Lee's school daze and she was a glam slam dancer. I saw an interview with Jasmond Guy(Whitley on a different world)on that old Friday night video show and she said that the close ups of the girl in the video are of someone else, but the far-away full body shots are of Monique Mannen who was in school daze with her. The close ups were of a dark haired White woman. Monica is a light skinned Black woman.

so what about the myth that Prince told her 2 wear the scarf in the video, cuz he didn't think she was pretty enough, then gave her scarf as a gift after the video shoot ? Was that true or just a rumor ?

So who is the white woman whose face we see (behind the glasses?)? She kinda looks like Susannah/Wendy which is what started this thread.


Then again, maybe it's Prince "Blanket" Jackson's real momma! Which explains his habit of wearing veils now. smile

Rebecca Blake, I think she's also the director of the video.

I've always thought the still shots of the woman (like when she's wearing shades) was model Kara Young. (I thought the dancer was someone else, like in "Flashdance.")
