In fact, she's quite proud of it - and justly so. This five-foot bundle of sex appeal owns five (count 'em: five) of Los Angeles' plushest do-it-yourself Laundromats. So the phrase 'She's cleaning up' is doubly true for Miss Peters since she not only is extremely active in the lucrative movie and TV fields but is also considered one of the town's most astute young business women.

Well, that's sho' business, honey-chile. Yazzuh, yazzuh.".
