Heather Kozar was born May 4th, 1976, in Akron, Ohio. Raised in a strict Christian home, Heather was not allowed to watch anything that contained sex or cursing, especially soap operas as they were deemed too provocative.
Growing up in a sheltered environment and suffering from low self-esteem while in high school, the blue-eyed blonde surely didn't know the impact she would have on males everywhere, due in large part to her relationship with Hugh Hefner... and his magazine, that is.
more than she bargained for
The 1994 Green High School graduate appeared in the Playboy Video Playmate Calendar in 1999 and 2000, Play.mates of the Year: The '90s (a retrospective of the past Playmates of the decade in 1999), Playmate Pajama Party in 1999, and the Playboy Video Centerfold: Playmate of the Year Heather Kozar in 1999.
As one can see, Heather was honored with the titles of January 1998 Playmate of the Month, and reigned as Play.mate of the Year in 1999. Part of those duties include appearances at the Playboy Expo in 1999, and being a regular housemate in the Playboy mansion.
more than a mate
Heather has also made non-adult appearances in 1999, in WWF Smackdown!, Shasta McNasty (as did Lisa Boyle), Rescue 77, a Wendy's commercial, and the requisite Playmate pit stop, The Howard Stern Show. She would do more acting gigs if she had more time for auditions.
Her latest stint features her joining a bevy of beauties, Barker's beauties to be exact, as a model for The Price is Right. Previous famous Price is Right Models include Gena Lee Nolin and Cindy Margolis.
Heather is engaged, and still keeping busy with the Playmate after-buzz. In 10 years, she hopes to be married and a mother, and appear on a show like Entertainment Tonight.
