How We Know Her: First of all I have to apologize because this update took some time. Amanda Peterson (Can't Buy Me Love fame) has been one of the toughest ones to find. I meant to get an update on her about a week ago, but it took me sometime.
UPDATE 2, July 6, 2015: I am shocked and saddened to say that Amanda Peterson has passed away. As of this moment, we are still awaiting her cause of death. Her father, who is a doctor in Greeley, CO states that sleep apnea could have been a contributing factor but we don't know anything for sure. I can say also say that Amanda's mother, Phyllis Peterson, also stated that at a time Amanda had issues with drugs. All of that doesn't really matter at this stage. What matters to me is that this wonderful person that we all have been a fan of has passed. She was a great actress and person.
UPDATE! Where Is Amanda Peterson Now?
So, I am happy to say that Amanda is still around and living in Colorado with her family. Last month Amanda also took some beautiful shots for a website KR Productions which can be seen here:
Now the "KR" stands for Kasha-Ryan. Ryan is the photographer for the site. He has stated that he didn't even plan on taking those pictures of Amanda Peterson, and she was only there because she "volunteered to do hair and makeup for some first time models at a shootout." He went on to say "It wasn't until about halfway through the day she decided to have me take some shots." This may shed a light on what Amanda has done for work since she left tv/movies back in the mid-90's. Perhaps she has been working doing hair/makeup? I can't be sure. Please also check out this link for some "behind the scenes" looks. That include a couple of recent pictures of Amanda also.
One of the pictures there is of Amanda doing makeup for a model and another one is Amanda talking to some of the models. KR Productions also stated "There is a lot in the works and more photos to come so please be patient as she makes this adjustment back into the public eye. Please do what you can as far as sharing this web address through facebook, twitter and whatever other means you have available because I will be posting more info there as a common spot for people to go and check out. We have discussed a wide array of with Amanda and I hope you will all be pleasantly surprised in the very near future."
In addition, there has been a fan site that I thought was interesting... It is on facebook and fans of Amanda will want to certainly check it out. It is similar to what fans did for Betty White. It is an "Amanda Peterson to Host SNL" page on Facebook. Hasn't got a lot of fans yet, but still fun:
Last year there was a "Can't Buy Me Love" reunion. No, Amanda wasn't there. They of course asked about her though. Here is the youtube video from that reunion. They talk more about Amanda towards the end. No, this is not my youtube video, but was posted on youtube by someone in attendance.
In the meantime I have put in emails to others that could help us get more of an update. If I get added information I will post it. Please feel free to post your comments here.
