Did you know that rock star wife Angela Bowie – also known as “Jipp Jones” – once auditioned for the lead role in Wonder Woman? Although her own reports claim that Lynda Carter got the role, timing and historical fact-checking show that Bowie actually auditioned for the first Wonder Woman telefilm, which starred Cathy Lee Crosby.

Bowie’s first public discussion of the Wonder Woman audition was on The Tonight Show, in an episode originally aired on 11-16-1973, with the guests Dinah Shore, Joan Rivers, Angela Bowie, and Ashley Montagu. According to the official Johnny Carson website, Bowie discussed “Loving America, being the wife of rock star David Bowie, the Royal Wedding being boring, and their Zowie.”

In addition to her appearance on The Tonight Show, Bowie’s audition was mentioned in the Feb. 11, 1974 issue of Newsweek, in which it was reported that Angela Bowie had been considered for the role of Wonder Woman for an upcoming ABC-TV movie but lost the part for her refusal to wear a bra.

The rock magazine Rock Scene (May-June 1974, pg 37) also did a one-page photo spread.
