Hello fans,

Apollonia hasn't been in the spotlight for quite awhile, and 
many of us might have forgotten about her if it wasn't for 
Kanye West's hit song "Stronger" which mentions her name. 
Well, at least that's what made me think of her! Anyway, 
let's find out what has been going in the world of Apollonia!

Take care,
Melissa

                      APOLLONIA KOTERO
http://www.celebritynooz.com/watn/apollonia.html

BIRTH DATE: August 2, 1959, Santa Monica, California


BIRTH NAME: Patricia Apollonia Kotero


CLAIM TO FAME: Found stardom with her leading role in 
Prince's huge movie success Purple Rain (1984)


FAMILY LIFE: Apollonia was married to Greg Patschull from 
1980-1985. Their marriage ended in divorce. In 1987, she 
married General Hospital actor Kevin Bernhardt, and they 
divorced in 1996.


INFO: When musician Prince needed someone to replace Vanity, 
the lead singer of his female-trio Vanity 6, Kotero wasted
no time trying out in the nationwide audition. Prince cast 
her in his film Purple Rain, and chose her as Vanity's 
replacement in the group. He also bequeathed her with the 
stage name Apollonia. The newly renamed group, Apollonia 6, 
released one album in October 1984, and released the hit 
single "Sex Shooter." The band became famous for appearing 
on stage only in lingerie.

Apollonia moved on from Prince's entourage in 1985 to pursue 
a television role on Falcon Crest. She stayed on the show 
for 10 consecutive weeks, playing the girlfriend of teenage 
heartthrob Lorenzo Lamas. She also performed several solo 
songs, none of which would be released. One of these songs, 
titled Red Light Romeo, was often played and referred to 
on the show. 

In 1988, she released her first solo album, simply titled 
Apollonia, on Warner Bros. Records. Containing high energy 
dance music, three singles were released from the album: 
"Since I Fell For You," "The Same Dream," and "Mismatch." It 
was produced by several hit producers, such as Ric Wake 
(Taylor Dayne, Diana Ross), Terry Lupton (Michael Learns to 
Rock, Jamie Stevens), or songwriter Andy Goldmark (Jennifer
Rush).

Apollonia has also starred in three movies that all went 
straight to video: Back To Back, Black Magic Woman, and 
Ministry of Vengeance. She retired from show business for 
nearly five years while she was married to Kevin Bernhardt, 
and made her comeback in the mid-1990s.
