Traci Lords: Underneath It All

Traci Lords: Underneath It All

By Garrett Godwin

Traci Elizabeth Lords assumes the most challenging role in her life for the first time: mother.  The 39-year-old actress and her husband, Jeff Lee, recently welcomed son Joseph Gunnar Lee almost three weeks ago, on October 10, 2007.  He is the first child for the couple, who have been married for five years.

Born Nora Louise Kuzma in Steubenville, Ohio on May 7, 1968, Traci made headlines starring in mainstream adult movies underage, but because she was a minor, there were no charges against her.

Since then, Lords had recurring roles on popular shows such as Melrose Place, and on the SCIFI Channel`s original series First Wave.  She also starred in B-movies as well as having roles on the big-screen with John Waters` 1990 satire, Cry Baby starring Johnny Depp, and the 1998 film adaptation of Marvel Comics` Blade, with Wesley Snipes as the half-human, half-vampire slayer.

In 2003, Lords published her autobiography, Traci Lords: Underneath It All, which made the New York Times bestseller list.
