Toni Carroll Terman - Latin Quarter Singer. The Latin Quarter was owned by Mr. Lou Walters, Barbara Walters' father. Mr. Walters was Toni's Boss and Mentor.

On 4/21/2006, Broadway and 48th St. in New York City, was renamed Lou Walters Way by Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg.

Toni was televised with Barbara Walters singing the Latin Quarter Theme "So this is Gay Paree".

Toni, Mayor Bloomberg, Barbara Walters, and Show Girls appeared on "Access Hollywood", "Entertainment Tonight", and "The View" a channel 7 television show in NYC. Did you see her?

While we're on the subject of Lou Walters, here is the original logo used for Lou Walters’ “Latin Quarter” program. It has been said that the artist's rendering of the beautiful girls, that appeared in the Latin Quarter, doesn't’t really do justice to their true beauty and poise. Most people, after seeing the performers would comment:

"The girls were even more beautiful than the picture!”

Say hello to Toni:

Hi, my name is Toni Carroll Terman and, yes, I was a “Copa Girl and Latin Quarter Singer.” Thanks for visiting with me today and sharing in all the wonderful memories and ‘high-times’ I’ve had the pleasure of living!

After leaving home, St. Louis, Missouri, I found my way to the ‘Big Apple’ - New York City. The old song, “You’ve Come a Long Way from St. Louis” sure took on a new meaning for me. I wasn’t sure what to expect but I definitely got more than I ever would have imagined. My luck just kept getting better and better and I found myself working at the famous Copacabana and Latin Quarter – I was a Copa Girl and Latin Quarter Singer! Imagine that! Working with America's top stars, Frank Sinatra, Jerry Lewis, Dean Martin, Ella Fitzgerald, etc., things just kept going up and up from that day forward. Acting in movies, recording musical selections from the past and present, a far cry from the operatic singing lessons I had taken, writing songs, and even co-authoring some wonderfully entertaining and helpful books with my fantastically talented husband Dr. Philip Terman.

After much friendly prodding, coaxing, and gentle nagging here it is, finally - a way to bring you some laughs, some trips down memory lane, beautiful music, classic video clips, an educational music CD package, a great and hilarious book to help you laugh your way thin. "Laugh Your Fat Off" - hooks to keep one slim forever.
