Religious Cult Figure. In 1969, she co-founded the Alamo Christian Foundation with her husband, Tony Alamo. The organization quickly gained notoriety for its intense evangelistic methods and "in your face" approach to sin in the Hollywood culture at large. In 1976, the ministry moved its headquarters to Alma, Arkansas, her childhood home. The Foundation gained notoriety for making high-priced, sequined denim jackets for Hollywood celebrities while not complying with Federal Wage and Hour law, and became regarded by various cult awareness groups as one of the premier cult groups of the 1970s.
