April Margera (née Cole; March 28, 1956) is an American reality television personality, who has appeared on MTV's Viva La Bam, Jackass, the CKY videos, Minghags: The Movie and Bam's Unholy Union.

April Margera is the mother of Bam and CKY drummer Jess, and is married to Phil Margera.[1] Jeff Tremaine, producer of Jackass, once referred to her as "everyone's mom", telling how she cooked dinner for the entire Jackass crew on their first trip to West Chester.[2]

In 2006, she published a cookbook called April Cooks: There's An Alligator In My Kitchen, which is a play on the fact that Bam put an alligator in her kitchen as part of a skit on Jackass: The Movie (he was trying to make her swear because the movie would be uncensored).[3] This was achieved in the film and in Jackass Number Two.[4] In October 2007 she testified on behalf of the defense for her brother-in-law Vincent Margera's trial.[citation needed]

In December 2011, it was announced that April had opened The Rose Hip Barn, along with her mother Velma and her daughter-in-law Kelly. The store, located in Thornton, Pennsylvania, sells refurbished furniture as well as homemade purses and accessories for the home.[5]

In March 2016, April and Bam Margera appeared on the VH1 reality television show Family Therapy with Dr. Jenn to work on their relationship and confront Bam's alcoholism. [6]
