As a biography, Tawny Kitaen was born in San Diego, California on August 5, 1961, which makes her to be forty eight years of age. Her biological name is Julie, however she started to call herself Tawny when she was twelve.

The Whitesnake video hottie was the daughter of Terry and Linda Taylor Kitaen. Terry was an employee of a neon sign company and Linda was a housewife and a former beauty pageant queen.

Tawny started her acting career back in 1983 with a minor role in a television movie called Malibu. From there, she went on to act in a few other roles, including the bride-to-be of Tom Hanks in the movie Bachelor Party.

In 1987 when she met her future husband David Coverdale, the lead singer of Whitesnake, who had Tawny appear in several of the band’s music videos. Her music video career made her into a sex symbol as she became well-known for her appearance in the “Here I Go Again” video. Tawny and Coverdale married from 1989 to 1991.

Kitaen then went on to marry baseball pitcher Chuck Finley in 1997. They had two daughters, Wynter Finley in 1993 and Raine Finley in 1996. Chuck and Tawny were married from 1997 to 2002.

Starting in 2006, Kitaen became a reality television regular as she appeared on The Surreal Life and then later Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew.

However, her life has not always been peachy keen.

On September 16th, 2009, TMZ is reporting that learned Kitaen has been charged with a DUI after her September arrest in Newport Beach, California.

However, according to TMZ, the DUI was said to be not alcohol-related, but prescription drugs rather as she was pulled over at 3:00 PM on September 16th, 2009. If Tawny is convicted, she faces up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine.

This isn’t her first run-in with the law as she was busted back in November 2006 with cocaine at her Orange County, California home.

Let’s just hope that this is Whitesnake video hottie’s final run-in with the police!
