Who is Sharise Ruddell?
Sharise was born in Huntington Beach, California USA, on 27 October 1964 – her zodiac sign is Scorpio, and she holds American nationality. She’s a former model and mud wrestler, while she’s probably known best for being a former wife of famous American musician Vince Neil.
Early life and education
Sharise was raised in Huntington Beach alongside her sister Shanae Ruddell and brothers Greg and Gary Lee, by their mother Shirley Ruddell who was a housewife, and their father Gary Ruddell who was a construction worker.
Sharise became highly sporting while attending a local high school, as she played soccer for her school’s team, and also enjoyed dancing, playing volleyball and wrestling. She was 17 when she began going to a local gym, initially because her best friend didn’t want to go alone, but Sharise soon fell in love with working out.
She matriculated in 1983, and then chose not to pursue a college degree, but to move to Los Angeles, California and pursue a career in modelling.
Sharise found some modelling work not long after she arrived in Los Angeles, but she only gained recognition when she became a wrestling ring girl; it was then that various magazines began writing about her, and she was offered even more modelling work.
Sharise has since launched her own company – Na Na & Punk Polka Dots – and has also launched her own bikini brand, of which she’s the sole designer.
She’s also a bit of an actress, as she appeared in the 1987 music video “Mötley Crüe: Girls, Girls, Girls”; Sharise could also have been seen appearing in the 2000 episode “Video Vixens” of the documentary series “VH-1 Where Are They Now?”, the 2009 episode “Hollywood Ex-Wives” of the documentary series “E! True Hollywood Story”, and 14 episodes of the 2013 reality show “Ex-Wives of Rock”
Love life and marriage with Vince Neil
Vince was once a huge fan of mud wrestling, and after having watched Sharise wrestle, he asked her out on a date. The two were together for around a year when they exchanged vows in April 1987, in a private ceremony attended by only a couple of their closest friends.
Sharise gave birth to their daughter Skylar Lynnae Neil on 26 March 1991, who was diagnosed with Wilms’ tumor when she was two; after six operations and chemotherapy, Skylar passed away on 15 August 1995, but Sharise and Vince had divorced in 1993.
Sharise eventually began dating Kirk Siegel, after the two were set up on a blind date by a mutual friend; she gave birth to their son Colt Siegel, but they split not long after that.
As of May 2022, Sharise seems to be single, has been married once, and has a son – her daughter with Vince Neil died aged four.
