Biography:

Traci Bingham was the youngest of seven brothers and sisters, who set great examples for the baby of the family. The Cambridge, Mass. family was very close knit, so Traci initially took up sports to spend more time with her brothers. And Traci was game for anything - even football! Traci looks back upon her childhood with fondness, saying, "I feel privileged to have had such exposure to my roots continually throughout my childhood. It's given me strength to believe in myself." Just as all her brothers and sisters before her had, Traci was Ivy League bound, and Harvard was where she settled.


.


While at Harvard, Traci was able to work on a few of the school's productions, including "Annie" and "Grease." She loved it, and wanted to possibly pursue acting. She grabbed a small part in the movie Celtic Pride, and she was hooked! After a few guest roles on television shows and a nationally run Coca-Cola ad, Traci packed her bags. She decided to put her Harvard studies on hold, and catch the next train to Los Angeles.


.


And off to L.A. she went. She quickly grabbed guest spots on many of the hottest sitcoms on television - from Married...with Children to The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. But her big break was still to come...


.


After two years of hunting down small parts, Traci decided to take the Pamela Anderson Path to Hollywood Fame. That's right - Playboy and Baywatch. In any order, it was a role on the most watched show in the world, and a smiling face in one of the most read magazines in the world. It is definitely a great way to go.


.


Off the screen, Traci married Robb Vallier, a Los Angeles musician in Ames, Iowa on 29 August 1998. Bridesmaides at the wedding included her former Baywatch castmates Carmen Electra, Angelica Bridges and Gena Lee Nolin. Traci and Robb divorced on 18 January 2001.


.


Traci loves redecorating her apartment with flea market finds, wrough iron furniture, scented candles and plants.
