Shanna Moakler was born on March 28, 1975 in Providence, Rhode Island.
Unnoticed throughout most of her high school years, except perhaps as a
roller skating enthusiast, Shanna was a late bloomer, eventually
developing into a curvaceous five-foot eight-inches. She took up
modeling and became the Miss USA winner in 1995. She later
gained a photoshoot as a centerfold, appearing as Miss December 2001.
Her career took another step forward when she acquired acting roles,
first on television's Pacific Blue, then in feature films including,
"The Wedding Singer" and "Love Stinks." A celebrity who always makes a
splash, more often outside of her career paths, Shanna broke up with her
boyfriend, Oscar De La Hoya (with whom she had a baby girl) after which
she filed a large lawsuit. She has also dated actor Dennis Quaid, Billy
Idol, and Jordan Knight from New Kids on the Block.
