[show]According to Catherine Bach in an interview on E! True Hollywood Story, her famous "Daisy Duke" shorts almost didn't make it onto the show. When network executives saw her wearing the shorts, they had a fit and told the producers she couldn't wear them. After arguing back and forth, the executives allowed her to wear them on one condition: she had to wear pantyhose beneath them so nothing would accidentally be revealed.
