Cybill Shepherd, former beauty queen and model, rebounded from a disastrous early career in motion pictures to become a highly respected television performer. Born on February 18, 1950 in Memphis, Tennessee, Shepherd won the 1966 Miss Teenage Memphis contest. Turning to modeling, Shepherd at 5' 8" and 140 lbs. was more full-figured than Twiggy and her clones who were popular in the late 1960s, and she quickly became a success, being named the 1968 Model of the Year.
