Info: Born in the Bronx, Connie moved with her family to the upstate New York town of Pomona at age 12. She became involved in student productions at Ramapo High School and with the encouragement of her speech teacher, she withdrew from Boston College, signed with a New York agent and pursued an acting career.

Her very first screen test won her first starring role in ABC's "The Bermuda Depths," with Burl Ives and Carl Weathers.
Trivia: She's a former lingerie and fashion model. In fact I was quite shocked to see how many nude pictures there are of her floating around on the Internet.
Prior to her second marriage to John Tesh, they had a traditional courtship, no sex or living together until their wedding night and dated seriously for 2 years.
