Flix Chick Picks Stix; Or, Kim Basinger Buys Braselton
Some locals are nervous about the prospective purchaser. "She wants to put a movie studio here," says one area resident. "But if they're like her movies, it'll be pornography." Mayor Henry Braselton, 62, the latest of an unbroken line of Braselton's who have held that office during Braselton's 102-year history, says Basinger is "a sweet, caring person" who fell in love with his town. Brother Kit holds a similar view, even after seeing Basinger's nude photo in a 1983 Playboy. "I could feel myself turning red, I was so shocked," Kit says. "I was kinda thinking she might have on a bikini. I'm a church-going conservative, and I don't usually appreciate that kind of picture. But as far as I am concerned, she's a fine lady."
