Penthouse Magazine Founder Dies
Penthouse founder Bob Guccione died yesterday of cancer at a Plano, Texas, hospital. He was 79.
Just thinking aloud, but Hugh Hefner has got to be around 90, right? I remember back when I was a teenager that they always had these magazines behind the counter and it was a coup if you were able to actually get one! How time flies!
Guccione, 79, died at Plano Specialty Hospital, with his wife, April Dawn Warren Guccione and two of his children, Bob Jr. and Tonina, at his side, a family statement said.
April Guccione’s mother, Georgann Flinchbaugh, told CNN her daughter, who had been married to the publishing and entertainment magnate since 2006, was too distraught to talk.
