Besides her professional accomplishments in the entertainment industry, Renee Sloan is also recognized as the other half of a high profile couple. If her husband’s words are anything to go by, then it is safe to say Sloan is more than just his soulmate but also his ‘life’ and ‘rock’. Offscreen, the former stuntwoman is one hell of a tough woman who has battled some major health issues but is still standing strong. Find out why the actress, TV personality and businesswoman’s profile should not escape your attention.
Who is Renee Sloan and How Old is She?
A Tennessee native, Peaches Renee Sloan was welcomed into the world on December 24, 1972. There is a dearth of information regarding Renee’s early life, and elementary education. But for her family background, she is the second of three children born to William Sloan and Beverly Stacy. Renee and her siblings Bryan and Brandy are of mixed heritage as they have Dutch roots.
For her tertiary studies, the former stuntwoman first attended the London School of Economics and Political Science and later topped up her profile with a Masters degree in Business Administration from the same school.
Given her course of study, it is uncertain if Renee Sloan did other jobs prior to her showbiz career. Moreover, it is not known when exactly she ventured into acting but her earliest recorded screen gig dates back to the year 1989 when she featured in Baywatch as a stand-in for actress Pamela Anderson. Sloan has since followed up with other screen credits. In 1991, she appeared in Silk Stalkings and seemingly took a hiatus from the industry until the 2000s. In the year 2004, Sloan starred in the horror movie Murder-Set-Pieces.
As a TV personality, Renee Sloan can be recognized for her 2007 stint in episodes of Scott Baio Is 45… And Single as well as Hugh Hefner’s Playboy Mansion series The Girls Next Door. She is also a model who worked with some top fashion brands during her heydays. Notably, she had several gigs with Playboy Enterprises including two Playboy documentaries in 2002, a feature in Who Wants to Be a Playboy Centerfold? as well as Inside the Playboy Mansion.
Renee Sloan is also a businesswoman who is active in the fashion industry. From clothing designs and sales (Whipped Couture) to jewelry merchandise (Sloans and Stones), the actress got her clients’ fashion needs covered.
Her Husband and Kids
Renee Sloan has a failed marriage behind her. Prior to her marriage to Baios, she was previously married to a mystery man. Just like her ex-husband’s identity, there is little or no information known to the public about Sloan’s first marriage. However, before their split, the union produced a daughter named Kalyn LaNae who was born in 1989.
There is a dearth of information about Renee Sloan and Scott Baio’s romance from the outset but the couple is believed to have dated for a long time before eventually tying the knot in September 2007. Barely two months after, they welcomed their daughter Bailey. Interestingly, Bailey could have been a twin but sadly they lost her other half while Renee was still pregnant. She remains the couple’s only biological child till date.
Renee and Scott have remained inseparable for more than a decade. The couple who currently live together at San Diego California is presumed to be waxing strong by the day. In fact, Renee’s husband has at various times described her as not just a soulmate but also his ‘rock’ and ‘life’.
Renee Sloan has battled some health issues over the years. First, the former stuntwoman revealed that she was in the early stages of breast cancer a few years ago. Consequently, she underwent three successful lumpectomies. Again in 2015, news emerged that Sloan was diagnosed with a meningioma brain tumor. But more recently in March 2018, the former stuntwoman disclosed via social media that she had been diagnosed with Microvascular Brain Disease.
Although she didn’t give any further details about the illness, her husband later confirmed the news. Scott Baio revealed that as a stuntwoman, Renee Sloan had a massive brain injury following a jet ski accident in 1992. However, it remains uncertain if the accident is in any way connected to her tumors and the Microvascular Brain Disease. Given that MBD patients are prone to dementia and strokes, Renee Sloan’s new diagnosis requires her to live as a depression-free, stress-free, and anxiety-free life as possible while also ensuring a good amount of nightly sleep.
It is uncommon knowledge her daughter, Bailey was falsely diagnosed with a metabolic disorder called GA-1 at birth. This led the couple to later establish a non-profit called the Bailey Baio Angel Foundation, which is dedicated to helping special needs children affected by metabolic disorders.
Renee Sloan has impressive physical features. The blonde-haired stuntwoman stands at a height of 5 feet 3 inches, complemented by weight of about 56 kg. Though Sloan’s other body measurements have not been disclosed, it is apparent that she has maintained a good physique over the years.
While Renee Sloan’s exact salary has not been disclosed, she is believed to have amassed a decent fortune from her numerous gigs in the entertainment industry, including earnings from her business. The former stuntwoman enjoys a net worth that is currently estimated at $3.5 million.
Scott Baio’s Sexual Misconduct Scandal
In the course of her entertainment career, Renee Sloan has not been entangled in any controversy but the same cannot be said of her husband. The Happy Days actor was recently accused of on-set sexual harassment and abuse by his Charles in Charge co-stars, Nicole Eggert and Alexander Polinsky. However, Baio vehemently denied both claims.
