No better city

This story is El Paso in a nutshell. A woman so beautiful she becomes a world famous model/actress. But in El Paso, she was only runner-up in several beauty contests.

There are so many beautiful women in El Paso, it makes my head spin.


Great Job! Now here are my three favorite El Pasoans:
Sandra Day O'Connor Supreme Court Justice.. Sam Donaldson ABC news.. and star of Sideways.. Thomas Haden Church..
keep rolling.

Don't forget about Ed Hochuli. Famous UTEP Alumni. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ed_Hochuli

Great article!
I like Susan Blakely - she is so beautiful; and seems to be nice, cool...
I watched some films where she acted, but one that touched me - THE TOWERING INFERNO - so many tears, and sadness! It was on TV last week, in my country; well, the dubbed version - much more "touchable"!

it's a great thing to know about some people that still cares of us the readers, i mean, some people only wants to write about some stupid sh*t and treat the readers like we have nothing but air in our heads, i'm glad to see you're one of the others, the people who cares about a good substance content in their blogs, very nice of your part, thanks!!!!

I knew Susie before she won the modeling awards and most of us at UTEP felt that we had proven that we had girls that could compete with NYC. I was someone that was fairly irrelevant in her world, but I remember that she and Elanor Duke, Ph.D. a biology faculty member that enjoyed supporting her students, was close with Susie and would relay stories of the price that she was paying for her success.
