I didn't know she had lupus!!

Pietra Dawn Thornton, former wife of Billy Bob Thornton has lupus SLE.  She was a model for years, but gave it up after doing Playboy in January 1998. She decided that playboy/modelling was not what she wanted to do with her life.  She is a very talented writer, and has been since she was a child. Her creativity has stemmed from childhood as well. She has been struggling with Lupus for about 8+ years, but she still manages to live her life to the fullest.  Raising two boys while fighting lupus is difficult, but she gets it done.  She is a very strong and beautiful woman. We are proud of you Pietra, keep up the good work!!
