Janice Dickinson Net Worth, Biography & Wiki 2017

Janice Doreen Dickinson was born on 15 February 1955, in Brooklyn, New York City USA, and is a photographer, fashion model, talent agent, as well as an author, widely recognized as a self-proclaimed supermodel who also often calls herself “the world’s first supermodel”; she claims that she created the term in 1979 and received a lot of backlash and controversy for her statements. Nevertheless, notoriety eventually resulted in her being invited to judge the reality television series “America’s Next Top Model”, and then her own series “The Janice Dickinson Modelling Agency”.

So just how rich is Janice Dickinson? According to authoritative sources, Janice Dickinson’s net worth is estimated to be over $500,000, as of mid-2016, the majority earned from her involvement in modelling, but now a good deal lower as a result of filing for bankruptcy apparently brought about by unpaid taxes and cosmetic/plastic surgery debts.

Janice Dickinson spent most of her childhood in Hollywood, Florida. Subject to verbal and physical abuse by her father, Dickinson moved out to New York City in order to work as a model. After winning a “Miss High Fashion Model” competition, Janice expected to get a job fairly easily, however, she was turned down by many agencies before she was discovered by Jacques Silberstein, who worked in the industry as a fashion photographer. With Wilhelmina Cooper as her agent, Dickinson began traveling abroad and even modeled in Paris, which helped expand her career to European industry. In 1978, Dickinson returned to the United States and signed a contract with Ford Models modeling agency, which helped her contributed significantly to her net worth. Within a few years, Janice Dickinson became a famous name in the fashion industry, being featured in such magazines as Vogue, Cosmopolitan and Playboy, and working with Valentino, Calvin Klein and Gianni Versace.

With Janice Dickinson’s modeling career on the rise, she began receiving many more offers to appear in the media. In 2003 she joined Tyra Banks and Nigel Barker on the panel of judges on “America’s Next Top Model”, which lasted for four seasons but was later fired by Banks. Several years later, Dickinson joined the cast of the reality television series “The Surreal Life”, and a year later debuted with her own reality show called “The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency”, which aired for four seasons, 41 episodes in total. Dickinson then appeared in a short-lived television series with fellow model Abbey Clancy – “Abbey & Janice: Beauty & the Best”. However, the show aired only six episodes and was never picked up after its first season.

Additionally, Janice Dickinson is a known author of three books, all memoirs with the most recent published in 2006, and which have no doubt supported her net worth.

In her personal life, Janice Dickinson has married three times, to Ron Levy, Simon Fields – with whom she has a son – and Alan/Albert B. Gersten. She has a daughter with former boyfriend Michael Birnbaum. She is now engaged to Robert Gerner, a psychiatrist. Janice was recently diagnosed with breast cancer.

Quotes

#Quote
1[on her The Surreal Life (2003) co-star, Caprice Bourret] Caprice is not a supermodel. She's some girl who developed a fake accent after moving to England, like Madonna.
2Back in the day I was doing runway, editorial, advertising, spokesmodeling, and public appearances. Those are five different categories. Your "Twiggys" and your "Lauren Huttons" weren't doing that. I was Versace's muse, I was Valentino's muse, I was Alaia's muse, Lancetti's muse, Calvin Klein's, Halston's. I could go on and on.
3Get a grip. The idea of the extreme makeover is disturbing.
