Nicole Elizabeth Eggert was born on 13 January 1972, in Glendale, California, USA, of British and German descent. Nicole is an actress best known for being in several television series, most notably in roles like Jamie Powell in “Charles in Charge” and Summer Quinn in “Baywatch”. The opportunities she’s taken during her career have put her net worth to where it is today.
How rich is Nicole Eggert? As of early-2016, sources estimate that her net worth is at $500,000, mostly earned through a career in acting and voice acting. Aside from her long-running roles in television, she has also guested in other series and starred in various films. Recently she started an ice-cream truck business which has also helped raise her wealth.

Nicole started her career at the age of five, when her mother, a talent agent, started entering her in beauty contests. She would go on and win a Miss Universe petite division contest and would then attract the attention of talent agents. Soon, Eggert was offered a role in a Johnson’s Baby Shampoo commercial, and many others followed after that.
Around three years later, during 1980, she made her film debut in the movie “Rich and Famous” in which she portrayed the younger daughter of Candice Bergen’s character. Her first television series opportunity also came, and it was a recurring role in the series “Who’s the Boss?” alongside a young Alyssa Milano. In 1987, she was cast for the series “Charles in Charge” which had a three year run before getting cancelled in 1990. Her net worth had significantly risen at this point. She then starred in the 3rd and 4th seasons of “Baywatch” which was originally intended to be a spin-off for the show, joining the ranks of Carmen Electra and Pamela Anderson, who were the “Baywatch” girls opposite David Hasselhoff. In 2003, she returned for the “Baywatch” reunion film entitled “Baywatch: Hawaiian Wedding”. Other series she starred in were “The Real Gilligan’s Island”, “The Super Mario Bros. Super Show!”, “Celebrity Fit Club”, and “Splash”. She also appeared in a few television movies like “Sleeping Beauties”, “Murder Seen”, and “Past Lies”.
Aside from film and television, Eggert established an ice cream truck business in 2014, and calls it a family run business. Additionally Nicole has also started a production company along with music producer Tim Miner. (She also appeared on the cover of Sugar Ray’s debut album “Lemonade and Brownies”.) However, later in 2014 Eggert would file for chapter 13 bankruptcy, as she declared that she had debts of around $800,000 and monthly obligations of $16,000. The obligations were much more than her monthly income and that led to the decision. This was primarily the reason for a decline in her wealth as she was previously estimated to have $4 million in net worth.
In her personal life, Nicole was once engaged to Corey Haim who starred with her in a couple of films. She married Justin Herwick in 2000 but the marriage only lasted two years. She has two daughters, one of whom is from Justin.

Has one sister, April (no brothers). Their parents are Ralf (aka Ralph, sometimes mistakenly listed as Robert) and Gina Eggert. Ever since the former died of cancer, Nicole has been highly active in raising money and awareness for the research and treatment of various cancer-related illnesses.
She has English and German ancestry.
Made several films with Corey Haim, who ultimately presented her with an engagement ring. She accepted but soon the two broke up.
After leaving her wholesome role on Charles in Charge (1984), she got saline breast implants for her role as lifeguard Summer Quinn on Baywatch (1989). However, she had them reduced a year later because she thought they were too large.
Broke three vertebrae in a snowmobile accident in 1996 at Lake Tahoe, and continues to have residual pain.
I love meeting "the Odd Man Out" - like fans of Baywatch (1989) who regret, as I do, that Tower 12 Productions didn't put nearly as much energy into writing and directing the show as they put into photographing and editing it.
I get asked from time to time about who Dylan [her daughter]'s father is, and what's happened to him since her birth. I always explain that her dad isn't anybody in show business--which is to say it's most assuredly not Corey Haim--and that he was truly in love with me, but just not ready to be a parent. Some people in the world are simply that way.
I did a scene after a huge rainfall and there was all this crap floating around in the water. We finally found a clear spot and started frolicking in the waves before looking down to see something just below the water. It was a big bloated dead guy. I let the coroner's office remove the body. I wasn't going to try saving that one.
For all the concern about bodies and weight, Baywatch (1989) has three huge catering trucks on the set at all times. One for entrées, one appetizers and one for junk food. It's enough to feed three crews. They'd stick them in our faces, but I had a clause in my contract that said I had to stay within five pounds of 105. It was torture.
