Darcy Lynn LaPier (born July 9, 1965) is an American actress and model. She is known for a series of high-profile marriages. She graduated from Portland (Oregon) State University, studied drama at the University of Oregon and Huntington Film Institute in Florida.[1]


She was married to Ron Rice, founder of Hawaiian Tropic suntan lotion company from 1991 to 1993. From this marriage, they had a daughter named Sterling ("Tweet Pea"). She then married actor Jean-Claude Van Damme in Bangkok, Thailand in February 1994; their marriage lasted until November 1997.[2] From this marriage, they had a son named Nicholas (born October 10, 1995).

In 1999, LaPier married Mark R. Hughes, founder of Herbalife, who died the following year.[3]
