Above, while it lasts: the video demo reel on YouTube for actress Jodie Fisher (not Jodie Foster!), who was today identified by the New York Times, USA Today, San Jose Mercury News, AP, Reuters, and the Wall Street Journal as the contractor at the center of the sex scandal that led to HP CEO Mark Hurd's recent ouster.
Ms. Fisher's film credits include a number of softcore adult films of the "Skinemax"/latenight HBO variety, filmed in the '90s: "Sheer Passion," "Body of Influence," and "Intimate Obsession," among them. She also performed in the television series "Silk Stalkings," and the noted B-schlocker "Blood Dolls."
Ms. Fisher, who is now 50, worked as a contractor with HP's marketing division from 2007 to 2009. She earned "up to $5,000 per event to greet people and make introductions among executives attending HP events that she helped organize," according to the AP. As an actress, her most recent role appears to have been on the NBC-TV reality dating show "Age of Love," in which twenty- and forty-something women desperate to make mortgage payments claw each other's eyes out for the affections of tennis star Mark Philippoussis.
