I put on my galoshes and walked very fast to Tracy's house. When I get there I tell her: "I never want to go home again!" Tracy's closet is huge. She's even put a pillow in there for me. I'm excited. I'm at peace. I'm happy with my new life. Tracy will hide me in her room, bring me food, and everything will be good. Three hours later, my mother has figured it out. She isn't stupid, she knows I'm somewhere. She's called Tracy's mother and Tracy's mother has come into her bedroom and - well, there I am. Tracy's parent's drive me home. That was the only time - ever - that my mother hit me. As soon as I got home, she looked at me with a face lined by hours of worry on top of two years of daily stress, turned me over her knee, and slapped my butt till it was red. "Why did you do that? You had me worried out of my mind," yelled this woman who never raised her voice at me. All the frustration of the difficult juggling act that was her life at twenty-six came out in that spanking, that plea.

Many years ago I read an interview given by Susan. She admitted that she had been titillated by the spankings. She further admitted that she had flubbed the rehearsed spanking scene several times in one such eposide and, in order to punish her, the spanker had given her a hard, real spanking during the filmed scene.

suzannah lessard - (contributed by mike) - In her excellent book, The Architect of Desire, the american writer describes a childhood spanking she received from her mother: (Suzannah and a friend had been caught by the local policeman playing a fairly harmless trick on two old ladies that lived in the village). `The upshot was only that I had to go and apologize to the the old ladies - not such an easy task for me at that age. My father stood by me, not only going with me but, when we were there, refusing to endorse the old ladies’ more extreme statements about my character and probable future. And then, when we had returned to the Red Cottage, he took me into the laundry and took down my jeans and underpants and hit me over and over. This may have been the first time since our return from Rome. Certainly it was the first time for a long time, for I had grown too old to spank.`

vanessa paradis - (contributed by varmint) - during an italian gameshow in march 98, vanessa mentioned that her father had once hauled her into the bathroom on a train from paris to nice, lifted her skirt, and gave her 5 or 6 decent swats. the reason was because vanessa (14 at the time) had snuck a beer from the food vendor, lying about her age (which should have been 16). this wouldn`t have been so bad apparently, except that she had insured service by pointing out that her father could buy the train if he wanted to. as she put it: `i said, if that`s not enough, maybe my father should make some investments here!` the worst part? the look on everyones face when she came out.

wynonna judd - (contributed by tracey) - wynonna was spanked by her uncle on the side of a road for being mean to her sister, this is described in naomi judd`s book `love can build a bridge`.

whitney houston - (contributed by jan) - whitney`s mother cissy`s biography yielded two things. First, there are several references to her own spanking experiences. Secondly, she provides a very strong probable for Whitney, her daughter. She says that she told her husband John that she wanted him to be the "softie" among the two parents so that when she "whipped the butts" of the kids they would have someone to go to. It doesn't explicitly state that Whitney was spanked so there's no official direct reference for her in this book, but it's about as close as you can get otherwise.

(contributed by michael) - I saw on Biography (a show on A & E) that Whitney Houston's mother commented that Whitney got  her last and most severe spanking at 16.
