Catherine Bach (Daisy Duke) Undressed
Catherine Bach (born Catherine Bachman on March 1, 1954 in Warren, Ohio) is an American actress. She is best known for playing sexy Daisy Duke in the television series ''The Dukes of Hazzard'', and for playing Margo Dutton in ''African Skies''.
Catherine was born to a German father and a Mexican mother. One of her first film roles was as Melody in the 1974 film Thunderbolt and Lightfoot. Catherine became a TV icon when, unhappy with the wardrobe provided for her Daisy Duke character, she fashioned short shorts from a pair of jeans, donned her famous shiny pantyhose, and walked into history. Thanks to the actress and her character, the term "Daisy Dukes" is now synonymous with cut off denim jean shorts in popular vernacular. Catherine sold over 5 million copies of her now famous "Daisy Duke" poster.
After several years of private life, interest in Catherine surged in 2005 with the premiere of "The Dukes of Hazzard" on Country Music Television (CMT) to a record 23 million viewers in the first weekend. She is currently in talks to pen her memoirs.
