Monique Gabrielle

Biography

Date of Birth 30 July 1963, Kansas City, Missouri, USA Birth Name Katherine Gonzalez Height 5' 6" (1.68 m) Mini Biography Beautiful, buxom and shapely knockout Monique Gabrielle added an ample, alluring and invigorating dose of smoldering sex appeal to a bunch of enjoyably down'n'dirty horror and exploitation pictures made throughout the 80s and 90s. The 5' 6" natural brunette was born as Katherine Gonzalez on July 30th, 1963 in Kansas City, Missouri and was raised in Denver, Colorado. Gabrielle made her acting debut at age five portraying an angel in a church Christmas play. She started modeling while still in high school, entered her first beauty pageant at age 17 (she won the title of Miss American Legion and went on to participate in several other pageants, modeling competitions and nightclub contests), and moved to California in 1980 right after she graduated from high school. Monique was the December 1982 "Penthouse" Pet of the Month. She had small roles in the mainstream features "Airplane II: The Sequel," "Night Shift," "Young Doctors in Love," "Flashdance," "Hard to Hold," and "Fear of a Black Hat." Gabrielle achieved her greatest enduring popularity as the enticing young woman who tries to seduce Tom Hanks in the uproariously raucous'n'raunchy "Bachelor Party." Her most memorable roles include a pathetic junkie snitch in the terrifically trashy babes-behind-bars classic "Chained Heat," the titular brazen and uninhibited sexual adventuress in the steamy "Emmanuelle V," a sweet princess and her evil twin in "Deathstalker II," a nude model in the funny sketch comedy "Amazon Women on the Moon," a gutsy lady cop in "Silk 2," feisty security chief Miss Poinsettia in the amusingly campy "The Return of Swamp Thing," and the nerdy, repressed Megan in the delightfully dippy "Evil Toons." Gabrielle did guest spots on the TV shows "Dream On," "Hardball," and "Hunter." She was the onetime girlfriend of low-budget straight-to-video picture director Jim Wynorski; she popped up in a handful of his movies in both minor and more substantial parts alike. Monique cheerfully poked fun at her own B-flick queen persona in the entertainingly silly "Scream Queen Hot Tub Party." Monique Gabrielle married adult film director Tony Angove in 2003. She now lives in South Florida and runs a porno movie production company called Monique's Purrfect Productions. Spouse Tony Angove (2003 - present) Trivia Her role in the movie Bad Girls IV (1986) was strictly soft-core and she was billed as "Star of Bachelor Party (1984)" (in which she had a one minute nude scene she seems to have spent her whole career trying to live down). Penthouse Pet of the Month December 1982. Starred in adult film Bad Girls IV (1986) under the name Luana Chass (per The Bare Facts Video Guide). #5 of Sci-Fi's Sexiest B-Queens, by Femme Fatales magazine. [1997] Natural brunette who also works as a blonde or redhead. Measurements: 34-24-35 (as Penthouse Pet in 1982), 36D-25-37 (July 1997); (Source: Celebrity Sleuth magazine). Interviewed in the book "Invasion of the B-Girls" by Jewel Shepard. Where Are They Now (August 2008) Lives in South Florida and runs a porno film production company called Monique's Purrfect Productions.
