Thump Day Honey, #2, or is it, #3? The tantalizing Tondra
Common wisdom holds that booful women are bitchy because they can be. But fortunately that doesn't apply in the case of the captivating PHX club-hopper known as Tondra. A habitue of nightspots like The Rogue, GLAM, Tranzylvania, and others, Tondra possesses the sort of beguiling attractiveness that stuns men into a state of temporary catatonia. But anyone acquainted with this dark-haired seductress knows she's one of the most amiable and sincere persons you'll ever meet. Indeed, her friendliness can be as disarming as her looks, if you can avoid being bewitched by her golden-red-brown eyes, her alabaster skin, and the exotic comeliness of her finely formed features.
"I don't get approached very often by guys in clubs," admits Tondra. "I think they're intimidated by me for some reason. Unless they're really drunk."
Perhaps it's the witchiness of Tondra's Irish-English-Welsh-Native American bloodline. (Tondra's part Chickasaw, and is actually registered with the Oklahoma tribe.) And then, admirers can become intoxicated gazing upon her 5'6" 34b-26-34 frame. It's no surprise then that Tondra, 26, models and does promotions for various companies. She also stage manages the local burlesque troupe Scandalesque. But her ambition is to establish a career in the media -- perhaps as a TV reporter. Currently, she edits shows and does the news for "The Fabulous Amy Donahue," who can be heard live on Saturdays from 6-to-8 p.m. and Tuesdays, 8-to-10 p.m. on KWSS 106.7 FM. Tondra's also taking classes at Phoenix College in media production, and has been accepted to the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism.
Imagine tuning in every day to see Tondra reading the news, and you'll see why her goal may come true in this department. But let's get down to brass tacks, how do you step to this vision of loveliness wherever you might see her? Well, Tondra's just getting over a breakup, and needs time for her heart to heal, she says. So give her some space, guys. For the moment, she's off the market. But that doesn't mean you couldn't court her friendship, and who wouldn't want a pal as charming and genuine as Miss Tondra?
