NEIL CAVUTO, HOST: When you think of Hollywood legends or at least when I think of Hollywood legends, my next guest really comes to mind. She's a Golden Globe winner, she's a Broadway star, and did I mention, she is oh gosh she is a knockout. On Saturday [August 13, 2005], actress Raquel Welch will be honored by the Vietnam Veterans of America for entertaining the troops with Bob Hope back in 1968.
Is it true that she (Raquel) got her start as a weather girl?
Thank you so much for posting....I wasn't aware that she had received that award, which she of course richly deserves.
"America's Favorite Bombshell" ....no such thing as too many Raquel Welch photos, in my view :-)
