Candy Loving is an American model and actress, best known as Playboy's Playmate in 1979.
Candy was born Candis Loving in Oswego, Kansas, on September 4, 1956. She moved to Ponca City, Oklahoma, at the age of three with her mother and four siblings.
She graduated from Ponca City High School in 1974 and married Ron Prather. She started studying journalism at the University of Oklahoma.
In 1978, the 22-year-old, with the support of her husband, entered Playboy's search for the anniversary Playmate. Candy beat thousands of women.
After becoming the magazine's 25th Anniversary Playmate, Candy Loving had the world at her feet.
Candy moved to California searching for stardom, but it took her only two years to realize that celebrity status was not for her.
Despite her natural sex appeal, adorable smile, and curves to die for, Candy's first love was journalism, so at the age of 25, she continued working toward getting a bachelor's degree.
Fame and glitz took a strain on her marriage, so Candy divorced but found love again, this time with Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive lineman Dave Reavis when both were judging a beauty pageant.
The two separated, and today, mom of one, and once, one of the most desirable looking women on the planet, has her own company.
In the early 2000s, Loving was voted the hottest Playmate of the 70s.
Everything you see is real, without Photoshop, contouring, or filters. And though she disliked being in the spotlight, Loving finished all her Playboy obligations as a pro and returned to finish her education and became a real boss babe.
