Sightings (submitted by you, the fans):
"I'm at a local concert venue [in Orange County, California] a few months ago reviewing a band that's to play in about an hour when Jaded took the stage fronted by Tina Yothers. With a brunette bob and a considerable amount of weight loss, Yothers aped just about every move from the Courtney Love handbook. It was funny. I called the band's manager the next day to set up an interview for a possible article. He was extremely enthusiastic about the prospects, but he said Yothers and the band are trying to stay away from the Family Ties thing as much as possible and he'd need to see the final draft before it goes to print. As if there were a story without those juicy tidbits." (Posted: March 1999)
Beware the Wrath of the Deli Guy
"I almost waited on now-obscure/then hot-s--t Tina Yothers. More than once, even. The Yothster used to frequent an East San Gabriel Valley deli -- this would be about 10-11 years ago -- where I worked as a deli guy. I cut meat on a large, menacing machine all day. ALL day. Tina, even at a distance, did not appear to be what you would tend to call 'nice.' She was pudgy, but not healthy-looking/healthy-appetite pudgy. Sort of a potato-chips-and-video-games pudgy, with attendant bad skin. She must have been 16-plus. ... She generally had a few teen gal pals along with her, who looked much healthier and would not, I promise, have been hanging out with this girl if she hadn't been on TV." (Posted: April 1997)
