Former Playboy Playmate Shoots Husband, Feeds Him Plastic Baggie, Goes to Jail
By Lauren Lloyd in News on September 7, 2011 4:20 PM

Victoria Rathgeb, also and probably better known as Angela Dorian, pleaded no contest today to attempted voluntary manslaughter. The 1968 Playboy Playmate of the Year shot and wounded her husband in their Hollywood apartment complex in October 2010.

**SNIP**

The 66-year-old vicious vixen has been sentenced to nine years in jail by L.A. Superior Court Judge Barbara Johnson.

Her husband of 25 years, Bruce, has since recovered from the incident. It went down like this. Bruce left the couple's apartment on October 16 after Rathgeb accused him of cheating on her. While Bruce waited for the elevator door to open, Rathgeb shot him from a distance of about eight feet. Angry wifey proceeded to shove a small plastic bag in Bruce's mouth, which he spit out as she returned to their apartment. Bruce's injuries included a shot close to the heart, resulting in a 4-inch scar above his left pectoral muscle and the inability to move any fingers on his left hand.

I’d hit that, but now, as opposed to how she looked then.

You could probably get by saying she was not guilty when she had this pic taken and there were still AMC dealerships around. Today, probably guilty.

I hope the AMX held up better than the playmate of the year.

9 years?

She should have car-jacked him, then changed her Tee shirt. 6 months max, if any. In East LA, this would be a minor domestic dispute. It's problematic if the cops would even turn out.

BTW, where is the inevitable FR NRA question corps. Type of pistol? Caliber? How many grains of what powder? Bullet type? Comments on the relative merits of the .45 APC vs. 9MM? Should she have used 454 Casull? Does she need more range time? Was this a "Fast and Furious" firearm?

Of course, the 9 year sentence could have been because of the plastic bag. Clear violation of recycling rules. Hang the woman!

Holy cow! I remembet taht picture!

Seriously, it was because of the car. I had a friend that had one of those. It was my favorite “muscle car” of the day. They actually shortened the standard two door. It was pretty amazing, really.

But I’d have avoided pink.

She does seem to bear a resemblance to Raquel Welch, but Raquel has aged much better. Probably more cash for cosmetic surgery.

Now there’s a buzz kill photo.

Then again, if I had access to bunny pics like *that* when I was twelve, I’d probably still have 20-20 eyesight and hairless palms.

The pink color interested me so I dug around seeing if it was a Playboy promotional car. I found this site about the car. There is such a history with the car, I'll bet it is still around in someones collection.

http://www.planethoustonamx.com/stuff/mission-amx-playboy-pinks.htm

Vetri: "I hate the color pink. When I was in Hollywood, it didn't matter where I drove the little AMX, studio, market, wherever, it took me a little longer to reach my destination than if I would drive one of my other cars. Police would even pull me over, not for ticket, but for a autograph., and this happened once a week." Most people just would ask if I was 'Playmate Of The Year' and that was end of it, however a few times I would be followed for great lengths and it would get ugly. I decided after making "When Dinosaurs Ruled The earth" I would have the car painted as to not stand out like sore thumb. It was painted brown, then grey, and later black, to which it remains to this day." "My car is a base AMX, 290V8 automatic, but also nicely optioned with air condition, power steering and brakes, tilt column, AM/8Track, fully tinted windows and bumper guards. Originally it had Magnum 500 chrome 1968 rims, but I changed them to slot dish mags. It's one of only 484 in that 290/AT combination. I have never offered it for sale and drive it regularly and it has about 95K miles on it. One day I will probably have it repainted pink however." McNealy: "The Mission AMX program was a real success exposure wise. There were 19 Playboy Clubs and the center piece to them was having a pink colored AMX there in the lobby. Most of them were base 290s, but I believe there were several 390 cars. And some of the cars possibly were pulled off (AM) dealer's lots and given a through pink paint job. But we had to have pink colored cars for the promotion, as Playboy demanded it as it was a continuation of their theme of "Playmate Pink" cars given to their Playmate of the Year starting in 1964 with a 1964 1/2 Mustang, (Donna Michelle); then a Sumbeam Tiger in 1965 (Jo Collins); 1966 Charger (Allison Parks); 1967 Plymouth Barracuda (Lisa Baker)."

I had a 1968 Javelin, couldn’t afford an AMX. Like you, I loved it. The glove box was bigger than the trunk, but it could move.

The problem with the AMX, as cool as it was, was that it was not practical enough. It was a two seater.

But there was also nothing like it. Nothing.

I’ll have you know that because of a Vega vs Pinto article in Playboy I ended up buying a Vega GT. I absolutely read the articles!

Too.

Gawd...why do they do that? She (Raquel Welch) has natural beauty despite a few wrinkles. But she looks just awful with the plastic surgery.
