Did Milburn Drysdale marry Ellie May Clampett?

You no doubt have your Halloween costume all ready to go, perhaps even have worn it once already. Nancy is wearing hers today to bowling. She is going as Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz. There is only one reason for her choosing that character: Toto! She is putting Sofi in a basket to be her Toto. No pix yet, but soon, I’m sure.

2008 version of Dorothy and Toto? An early halloween costume? A zealous trick-or-treater?

No, this is Traci Bingham. If you need to enlarge for “details” just click away.

When I saw this picture I was struck by one, not two ideas. Well OK, two, but not the two obvious ones.

1. Why is she dressed like this to take out the trash?

2. Why is she taking out the trash?

I Google ™ searched her and found this to be her career so far (she’s 40).

  • Demon Knight (1995)
  • Beach Movie (1998)
  • Foolish (1999)
  • The Private Public (2000)
  • Longshot (2000)
  • More Mercy (2003)
  • Four Fingers of the Dragon (2003) (short subject)
  • Malibooty! (2003)
  • Hanging in Hedo (2007)
  • Black Widow (2008)


  • Baywatch (cast member from 1996-1998)
  • The Dream Team< (1999) (canceled after 4 episodes)
  • Strip Mall (cast member in 2000)
  • To Tell The Truth (occasional panelist 2000-01)
  • BattleBots (host in 2001)
  • Celebrity Boot Camp (2002)
  • Celebrity Big Brother (cast member in 2006)
  • The Surreal Life: Fame Games (2007)
  • The Tyra Banks Show (2 episodes) (2007)
  • 2 Minute Drill(1 episodes) (2002?)

Then another question pops up.

How can she afford to have trash? I did a quick calculation and figured that after taxes a career like that would give her a net income of about $37,793 total. This doesn’t include other “off-the-books” income of course.

Answer: she is married to a banker.

Which raises another question: a banker??? a banker??? How proud he must be to take her to the annual Beverly Hills Bankers Ball.

Oh! Idea for reality show: Beverly Hills Banker! Milburn Drysdale marries Ellie May Clampett.

But I’m really puzzled over the original two questions. The second more than the first. Those are probably the only clothes she has that fit so she has to wear them to take out the trash.

So why is she taking out the trash? Doesn’t she have “people” to do that? I would. As a matter of fact, if I was rich, I would have a person who would be a live-in and be at my beck and call strictly to do chores like this one. Nancy could have one too of course. I think in our burg we could get a nice, dependable, couple to live in our Maison De Woofhaus for 100 grand plus medical. When we are traveling, which would be a LOT, they could take that time off to recover from our exhausting demands. But when we are living at our Sedona ranch, they would be expected to come along with us – coach of course.

Here’s an example of some of the duties my “people” would be expected to do for me:

  • Empty wastebaskets
  • Take out the trash
  • Pick up my socks
  • Refill the M & M’s
  • Reach that
  • Replace light bulbs
  • Put that away

Hmmm, that’s not a very long list. After all, we would have a cooker-person and a cleaner-person.

Doesn’t Traci have these people?

I’m feeling a little sorry for Traci.

I think she needs a hug.

  1. God, I hardly know where to start. You really ought to talk to Ben. Every time I look at the Safari history, it’s packed with people like Traci.

    Besides, I thought bankers had no money these days? Lawyers surely don’t . . .

    Gretchen´s last blog post..I’m Such A Fucking Hypocrite.

  2. Traci Bingham was once a Playboy Playmate as well. Not that it adds a lot to her bottom line, but I think it explains how she got any work at all.
