Heather Chadwell (born May 5, 1975) is an American actress, author, model, reality personality, and realtor. She is most known for her appearance on VH1's Rock of Love, but has also ventured into acting with a small appearance on an episode of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. She has Anna Nicole Smith's former agent working as her agent now; they are working on a comedy film similar to the American Pie movies about "a dancer who wants to go to college."
Childhood and education
Heather was born on May 5, 1975 in Columbus, Ohio. She has five stepbrothers, which is what she claimed "made her a tomboy as a child." Growing up, Heather was athletic, playing soccer, volleyball, basketball, and softball. She temporarily lived in Jacksonville, Florida with her father until her parent's divorce. After her parents divorce, she moved back to Ohio and enrolled in college. After transferring several times, Heather finally settled with Ohio State University and graduated in 2002 with a degree in communications. Once finishing college, Heather moved to Las Vegas, Nevada where she worked as an exotic dancer at casino and a modeling agency on the side for five years.
In 2006, Heather was cast on the VH1 reality show Rock of Love which featured heavy metal rock group Poison’s front man, Bret Michaels, as he chooses a romantic partner from among twenty-five ladies. She did rather well, making it all the way to the final two. Nonetheless, she considers the experience one of the wildest and craziest times in her life. After the program, Heather worked on her autobiography and a calendar which were both made available in 2008.
Ventures into acting
Heather Chadwell later became one of the seventeen contestants on the VH1 reality competition show I Love Money, which featured returning contestants from past VH1 reality shows such as Flavor of Love, I Love New York, and Rock of Love with Bret Michaels. She was eliminated on episode nine and placed ninth. She again returned to VH1 on Rock of Love: Charm School, getting eliminated in episode nine placing fourth.
