The back of Lee Mazzilli's 1985 Topps card notes that "his wife, Dani Folquet, is co-hostess of a television show."
I looked up Dani Folquet and found this very interesting article from a 1982 issue of Cincinnati Magazine. The name of the article is called "Wopsie-Daisy" and notes that she was fired from a Cincinnati morning news program in 1979 when "she introduced Midday's weatherman, Garry Rizzo, with a word that rhymes with slop."
Ironic, then that she married an Italian baseball player when she moved to New York and became co-host of PM Magazine.
Also interesting is the magazine's description of Folquet. The man who every girl in New York wanted ended up marrying a woman described as "pert and bouncy, with a kind of sexless, pixie attractiveness." I guess she was a breath of fresh air from all of those groupies?
