Former KHOU Defender Eileen Faxas Now in Mamma Mia

Who can forget Eileen Faxas, former KHOU consumer reporter (a.k.a. "Defender") and part-time anchor?

In her reports, Faxas introduced the groundbreaking method of using wacky sound effects (second item) and Benny Hill-type sped-up motion (second item) to illustrate how she was Protecting Houstonians (third item).

In 2002 she threw it all away to pursue a lifelong dream in music (second item), and has a Web site highlighting her career.

And now that career has brought her back to Houston, where she's currently appearing in the touring version of Mamma Mia! at the Hobby Center.

Fox 26 -- not KHOU -- has the scoop.

Faxas is in the ensemble in the show, although she also understudies one of the star roles.
