    She’s too dark to be either.

    She looks Pakistani or Persian.

    She is the daughter of Wendy Ann (Steffer) and Jeff Stuart Korman.

    Due to the lack of records of a “Wendy Steffer” born in 1950, i suspect Lindsay’s mother changed her birth name, from something like “Stefanopoulos”.

    Her own words:
    “I’m Greek, Italian and Jewish. In TV Guide they wrote that I was French, Greek and Jewish. I am mostly Greek. I don’t know where French came from.”

    Personally I find her terribly unattractive.

    I see veins sticking out of her forehead and the oily skin doesn’t help.
