After publishing this blog entry on Wednesday about the famous Miss Douglas, Stacy Hedger, I got an e-mail from a Richard Dean of Austin, Texas. Dean, it seems, had done his homework on Miss Douglas. He found an entry for her on classmates.com from Douglas High School in Douglas, Arizona.
So I called the only Hedger in the book in Douglas, Arizona. Turns out it’s her dad. He gave me Stacy’s cell phone number. When I called on Thursday, she hadn’t seen the video or heard that it was making the rounds on the Web. Since then, she googled herself and learned that the video has appeared everywhere from VH1 to Jimmy Kimmel Live.
After her research, we talked by phone. Turns out the video doesn’t have a Kansas City connection. Still, because there are probably a few people out there who are curious about the real Stacy Hedger, I recorded this interview above. I agreed to leave off her married name from this article, mainly because she’s this sweet mother of two from this small border town down in Arizona who doesn’t need any more harassment. Beyond the harassment she’s already gotten from her relatives. – Eric Barton
