America’s self-proclaimed first supermodel was born in Brooklyn, N.Y. in 1955.
She has conquered the covers of magazines worldwide, was a judge on America’s Next Top Model and has three published autobiographies to her name.
She is a fixture in the reality TV world with her Oxygen network series, The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency which documents Dickinson’s efforts to staff and operate a Hollywood modeling agency.
The acid-tongued model/TV personality—who has had several plastic surgeries and bouts with drug problems— has been married three times. Former husbands include Ron Levy, Alan B. Gersten and Simon Fields. She has two teenage children, a son, Nathan, and a daughter, Savannah.
In June 2009, Dickinson joined Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt to compete on the NBC show I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!. In 2010, she signed on for the fourth season of VH1’s Celebrity Rehab, which also enlisted Jason Wahler, Jeremy London and Rachel Uchitel.
