Personal Quote:

I'm not a beautiful person and I never have been. My ex Sylvester Stallone was obsessed with my looks. He got my profile carved into the place settings of our crystal dining table. And he commissioned a bronze statue of the two of us in our underwear for his garden. It was so embarrassing. But I never understood his fascination. See more »

Trivia:

Son by Mark Gastineau, Marcus (b. 1990). Gastineau announced his retirement from the NFL on 20 October 1988 citing that Nielsen, whom he left Lisa Gastineau for, was suffering from cancer. Much later, he admitted he had twice tested for steroids and was afraid of the bad publicity from a third positive test. See more »
