Danielle Colby was born in Davenport, Iowa USA, on 3 December 1975 – her zodiac sign is Sagittarius and she holds American nationality. She is a reality TV personality, burlesque dancer, office manager of an antique shop and the owner of her own clothing store, while she’s perhaps known best for her appearance in the reality documentary show “American Pickers”, which has been airing since 2010. The series was created by Mike Wolfe who also stars in it alongside Danielle and Frank Fritz, and it follows Mike and Frank who, with the help of Danielle, find antique bargains all around the US.
Danielle was raised in Davenport alongside her older sister, Carbomb Betty by their mother Sue Colby, who was a Jehovah’s Witnesses – Danielle hasn’t talked about her father, and it’s believed that he wasn’t around as she was growing up. She was dreaming about becoming a famous singer or actress while attending elementary school, but then started dancing and decided she would one day turn professional. She was also a very good roller skater, and competed with her own team, the Big Mouth Mickies for three years, before suffering an injury.
Danielle’s family moved to Chicago when she was in her teens, and they once together attended a burlesque performance by Margaret Cho, an American stand-up comedian and actress, and the American exotic dancer Satan’s Angel. After returning to Iowa, Danielle started taking burlesque dancing classes, and founded her own troupe Burlesque Le Moustache with eight other people – in 2014, she founded her own burlesque academy Dannie Diesel’s Bump ‘n’ Grind Academy.
Danielle was married before meeting Alexandre. She exchanged vows with the British man Robert Strong sometime in the ‘90s, and gave birth to their two children, however, they divorced in 2004 – Danielle has talked about her divorce on TV, claiming that her newfound TV fame was a lot for Robert to deal with, and the two could no longer function together.
