What Happened To Marianne Gravatte? (The Hottie From Ratt’s “Invasion of Your Privacy”)

Marianne Gravatte 2019

Ever Wonder What The Hot Girl from Ratt’s Invasion Of Your Privacy Looks Like In 2019?

Look no further. Before anyone gets all offended, the last thing I would ever fault a person for is getting older. It will happen to all of us. I can’t be the only person who has wondered who that girl is or what she looks like today. Thanks to google images it’s quite easy to find out.

Gravatte left modeling and now, with her husband, Mark E. Larsen, runs a sports bar. She is the mother of three children
