When Johnny Carson hosted Madonna on The Tonight Show on June 9, 1987, he probably assumed he would simply be interviewing the rising pop singer, but Madonna had other plans. The sexy singer flirted shamelessly with Carson until it was obvious to television viewers that the late night host was totally smitten with the Bay City, Michigan, native. Just a few weeks after her inaugural Tonight Show appearance, Madonna embarked on a world tour to promote her “Who’s That Girl” album. Later that year, the “Like a Virgin” singer sought an annulment of her marriage to actor Sean Penn. The split was not because of her flirtation with Johnny Carson, but due to irreconcilable differences.

Busty blonde Carol Wayne had a regularly occurring role as the Matinee Lady on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. In fact, she appeared in more than 100 episodes as the popular ditzy character in comic sketches that featured sexual innuendos. Wayne’s recurring role was cut, however, when The Tonight Show went from 90 minutes to 60 minutes. Being released from the talk show sent Wayne into a downward spiral. She became addicted to drugs and alcohol and experienced such bad financial difficulties that she reportedly had to work as an escort.
