Johnny Carson’s third ex-wife has denied that she is the woman featured in the talk show host’s recently leaked sex tape.
Former model Joanna Holland, 78, is outraged that she has been drawn into the sordid home movie scandal which allegedly features a dark-haired woman performing oral sex on the legendary Tonight show host by a swimming pool.
The tape then reportedly cuts to a 20-minute bedroom romp.
Ms Holland told the National Enquirer that she was not in the sex tape and could not be sure who was – but whoever sold the video should be ashamed.
She added: ‘I do believe it’s likely that a sex tape with Johnny does exist and was probably shot sometime in the ’60s.’
Six-time Emmy winner Carson was married four times. In 1948, Carson married Jody Wolcott but the union ended in divorce in 1963.
He married Joanne Copeland in 1963 but divorced her in 1972 before marrying his third wife, Ms Holland that same year.
The legendary host was a well-known lothario. In between his four marriages – at least one of which was blighted by infidelity – Carson was a committed ladies man.
According to the biography Johnny Carson, written by the star’s longtime lawyer and confidant Henry Bushkin, during his third marriage to Ms Holland, Carson showered her with gifts, including an apartment at The Pierre, a Rolls-Royce Corniche, and diamonds galore, as compensation for his many indiscretions.
