Born and raised in Malibu, Caroline D’Amore has walked runways at New York Fashion Week, spent time on the LA “it girl” circuit during the glitzy 2000s, signed to a record label, got dropped by that label, opened a restaurant, lost that restaurant, launched an Italian foods company, lost everything, and started fresh again. Oh, and she’s also starred on a reality show and become a mother.
