1968 Playmate Charged with Attempted Murder

10/20/2010 10:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1968 Playboy Playmate of the Year Angela Dorian has been charged with attempted murder -- after she allegedly shot her boyfriend from close range in their Hollywood apartment Saturday night ... TMZ has learned.

Angela Dorian shot boyfriend.

66-year-old Dorian -- aka Victoria Rathgeb -- aka Victoria Vetri -- (currently 5'5", 110 lbs) was arrested late Saturday night -- and is still behind bars. Bail has been set at $1,000,000.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... they believe Dorian and her BF were having an argument that turned physical -- and that's when Dorian grabbed a handgun and fired at least one shot into her boyfriend's upper body. The boyfriend was rushed to a nearby hospital -- we're told he's expected to survive.

When authorities first arrived to the scene, Dorian told cops that her boyfriend was shot by a drug dealer.

If convicted, Dorian could face up to life in prison.

UPDATE: Dorian plead not guilty to the charge -- she's due back in court next month.

Was she still pumping at the Manse? Playmates of the Year were not just beautiful, they had skills... She has been off the radar a long time.

I only remember her from her very small role in Rosemary's Baby and interesting that Rosemary's line in the movie was "you look a lot like Victoria Vetri" when in fact that actress was indeed her. Shame. Hollywood can be a cruel place even when you are in your 60's.

If I ever meet a Playmate, I'll be sure to ask if she wants to play with me or with guns.

She also starred in the movie, "When Dinosaurs Ruled The Earth".
