About as widely ridiculed as Barry Manilow, Pia Zadora is known for her turbulent celebrity status and questionable talents, mostly brought on by Hollywood scandal. Born in Hoboken, NJ, she appeared on Broadway as a child actor before making her film debut in the universally mocked Santa Claus Conquers the Martians in 1964. She continued her stage career as a singer, dancer, and actor after she married the Israeli corporate millionaire Meshulam Riklis in 1977. When she won a Golden Globe for her role in the 1982 film Butterfly, rumors started to spread that he was funding her success. It didn't help that she continued to star in terrible movies such as Fake-Out, Voyage of the Rock Aliens, and The Lonely Lady (which bears many similarities to the infamous flop Showgirls). Her acting career took a major downturn during the mid-'80s, so Zadora focused on recording pop vocal standards for Epic; she released several records and went on tour with Frank Sinatra. Her acting was limited to the stage and cameo appearances as herself, with the only exceptions being her performances as the beatnik chick in John Waters' Hairspray and Miss Muffett in the TV movie Mother Goose Rock 'n' Rhyme. Amid much controversy in 1988, Zadora and Riklis bought and renovated Pickfair, the mansion originally owned by Hollywood moguls Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks. Zadora and Riklis divorced in 1993.

  • Bought the Pickfair mansion in January 1988, only to have it demolished. The outside gate with the letter P is all that remains of the original home.
  • Her son's godfather is Don King.
  • She had a relatively successful singing career. She made pop and traditional vocal albums in the 80s. Her biggest hit in the U.S. was 1983's "The Clapping Song". She earned a Grammy nomination in 1984 with "Rock It Out" (for Female Rock performance) and also scored a worldwide hit with "When the Rain Begins to Fall", a duet with Jermaine Jackson. It was not a hit in the U.S., however. Among her albums: Pia (1982) and Let's Dance Tonight (1984), Pia & Phil (1985), I Am What I Am (1986), Reflections/Today (1988) and When the Lights Go Out (1988) and Pia Z (1989). She also had songs on the soundtracks to her films Butterfly (1982), Fake-Out (1982) and Voyage of the Rock Aliens (1988). She went on to perform in Las Vegas, opening for such pop standard veterans as Tony Bennett, Frank Sinatra and others.

  • Won the now defunct best new star of the year Golden Globe despite the fact that she actually made her acting debut eighteen years earlier.

  • Children: Jordan Maxwell (13 April 1997) with Jonathan Kaufer; Kady (1 January 1985) and Christopher Barzie (1987) with Meshulam Riklis.
  • Became the first thespian to "win" back-to-back RAZZIE Awards when she was named Worst Actress of 1982 for Butterfly (1982) and Worst Actress of 1983 for The Lonely Lady (1983) - thus making her the RAZZIE equivalent of Luise Rainer.
  • Appeared in a Penthouse spread in 1983. The picture for her 1984 "Rock It Out" single was taken from this shoot.
  • In 1984, her song "Rock It Out" earned a Grammy nomination for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance. Among her fellow nominees: Lita Ford, Bonnie Tyler, Wendy O. Williams and eventual winner Tina Turner.
