In March 1981, Playboy named her Playmate of the Month and featured an interview with her in which she revealed her other talents.
Kymberly told the outlet at the time that she played the flute as well as the guitar. “I used to ride my bike down there when I was a student at Santa Barbara City College and park beside a fiberglass tunnel.” I’d sit there, where I could watch the sunset over the Pacific, and play my flute down the tunnel.
People passed by, different couples, and I’d play music to suit them,” she explained at the time. “If it was an older man and woman, maybe in their 50s, I’d play something like ‘Moon River.'” When a young couple passed, or a girl walking alone, I’d play something current, like ‘The Girl from Ipanema.’ I enjoy being alone with my flute. Musicians are never truly alone.”
