Angela Kay "Angie" Everhart, born September 7, 1969, is an American actress, former model who has appeared in several Sports Illustrated swimsuit issues in the 1990s and posing nude for Playboy in 2000.

Early life[edit source | edit]

Everhart was born in Akron, Ohio, the daughter of homemaker Ginnie and engineer Bob Everhart.[1][2]

Career[edit source | edit]

As a teen, Everhart became a cover model for such fashion magazines as Elle and Glamour. Following a riding accident in which she broke her back at the age of 19, Everhart eventually recovered through physical therapy. She appeared in several issues of the annual Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition, starting in 1995. Everhart posed nude for a cover-featured pictorial in the February 2000 issue of Playboy. She was ranked #98 on the FHM 100 Sexiest Women of 2003.[3]

Everhart made her film debut in 1993 with the Arnold Schwarzenegger action-comedy Last Action Hero. She has since appeared in such features as Tales From the Crypt Presents: Bordello of Blood (1996), Denial (1998), Trigger Happy (1996), and Gunblast Vodka (2000). Other movies she has appeared in include Jade (1995), and Executive Target (1997), Another 9½ Weeks (1997), Sexual Predator (2001), Bare Witness (2001), Wicked Minds (2002), Payback (2006), Bigfoot (2008), and Take Me Home Tonight (2011).

She has also appeared on reality television. In 2004, she appeared in Celebrity Mole: Yucatan, in which she was the 'mole', the rogue agent sabotaging the group. She was one of the "Gingers" on the second season of The Real Gilligan's Island (the other was Erika Eleniak), but left the show when she accidentally cut her finger severely enough to sever tendons and require surgery. Angie was also a panelist on To Tell The Truth from 2000 to 2001. Everhart was a co-host on the ABC reality show The Ex-Wives Club, along with Marla Maples, and Shar Jackson in 2007.[4]

Everhart's long red hair earned her three Crown Awards for "Best Redhead" at the Super-Hair.Net website from 2005 to 2007. She also represented the United States in two Super-Hair World Cup tournaments, winning the championship through online votes in both 2006 and 2010.[5]

She is signed to London modeling agency Models 1, and New York Model Management.

On February 28, 2012, she began co-hosting the weekly live podcast Hot N Heavy with Greg Wilson on the Toad Hop Network. It is recorded at Jon Lovitz Comedy Club & Podcast Theatre.[6]

Personal life[edit source | edit]

Everhart was married to Ashley Hamilton from December 1, 1996, until their divorce in March 1997. She was engaged to Joe Pesci,[7] but the couple broke up in 2008.[8]

Single-parent Everhart gave birth to her first child, son Kayden Bobby Everhart, on July 24, 2009.[9]

Once a sky-diving enthusiast, Everhart gave up the activity following an accident in which she was injured badly enough to require back surgery.[10]

Everhart was diagnosed with thyroid cancer and will have surgery on May 14, 2013. A representative of hers said, "[Angie] wants to set the record straight by letting everyone know that it is true that she has been diagnosed with thyroid cancer, however, the prognosis is very good."[11]
