Eggert was born in Glendale, California. Her mother, Gina Duncan, is a British-born talent agent, and her father, Rolf Eggert, was a German-born canning company executive. Eggert's quest for stardom started when her mother entered her in beauty contests. At age five, Eggert was Miss Universe in the petite division. An agent saw her and offered her a role in a Johnson's Baby Shampoo commercial.
Eggert had a recurring role on Who's The Boss? from 1985–1986 as Marci Ferguson, who was a friend of Samantha Micelli (Alyssa Milano). In January 1987, she starred on the television show Charles in Charge as Jamie Powell. After the show was cancelled in 1990, she starred as Alexa Adams in the film adaptation of Danielle Steele's 'Secrets' which released in 1992. She was featured as one of the many lifeguards on seasons 3 and 4 on the syndicated show, Baywatch. She appeared on the show from 1992 to 1994 and was originally supposed to be on a Baywatch spin-off (she returned to Baywatch for the 2003 reunion movie, Baywatch: Hawaiian Wedding.). She appeared on Married... with Children in episode "Enemies" (opposite of the series Friends) as Shannon (1996), intended to be a back-door pilot for a spin-off.
In 2004, Eggert played the role of "Ginger" in the first edition of the TBS network's The Real Gilligan's Island reality show. She was the first guest star to appear on The Super Mario Bros. Super Show!. Also in 1989, Eggert hosted the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards with Wil Wheaton. She also appeared on Scott Baio Is 45...and Single (featuring her Charles in Charge co-star) in 2007.
In 2013, Eggert was added to the cast of Splash, the celebrity diving show on ABC. In April it was reported she was injured during the taping of an episode. In the days following, she denied sustaining any serious injury.
In 2014, Eggert began a new career as the owner-operator of an ice-cream truck, describing it as a "Family run business bringing a fun, unique, and innovative twist to the ice cream man."
Eggert was engaged to Canadian actor Corey Haim, with whom she starred in Blown Away (1992) and Just One of the Girls (1993). Eggert is credited with helping to save Haim's life at least once by taking him to the hospital to detox during a 'narcotic rush', although she has said: "I spent a lot of nights in emergency rooms with him. I don't think that I saved his life, I just think that I was there for him."
Eggert was married to actor Justin Herwick from 2000 to 2002. They have a daughter together, Dilyn.
She gave birth to her second daughter, Keegan, in July 2011
