Jessica Hahn (born July 7, 1959) appears as Ricki the Shoe Groupie, a sexy redheaded woman who frequently visits Gary's Shoes not just to buy new shoes, but also to see Al, who she becomes infatuated with in the Season 6 episode "So This is How Sinatra Felt". Jessica was a one-time controversial former PTL secretary/turned Playboy centerfold, actress and TV and radio personality.

Jim Bakker scandalEdit

Hahn first came to public attention following Bakker's announcement on March 19, 1987 that he was stepping down as head of PTL and Heritage USA, pending the imminent disclosure of the sexual encounter. According to Hahn, on the afternoon of December 6, 1980, when she was a 21-year-old church secretary, she was drugged and sexually assaulted by Bakker and another preacher, John Wesley Fletcher, for "about 15 minutes."[1] In his 1997 book, I Was Wrong, Bakker disputed Hahn's account, claiming that he was "set up" and that the sex was consensual.[2]
