Profile Bio Text
Lisa Dergan Podsednik (Lisa Eileen Dergan) (born August 10, 1970) is an American model, actress, media personality and sportscaster. She was Playboy's Playmate of the Month in July 1998.
Dergan has been able to establish a career beyond Playboy, in particular in the world of sportscasting. Her big break came in 2001 when she was hired to work a weekend sports show alongside Jim Hill at KCBS in Los Angeles. She joined FOX Sports Net in 2002. She has interviewed notable subjects from Tiger Woods to John Elway to Chuck Liddell. She has reported from important events including the Super Bowl, the Kentucky Derby and the U.S. Open golf tournament.
Other television highlights include serving as the co-host with Ken Ober on the USA Network game show Smush and co-hosting the reality wedding competition Race to the Altar in late 2003 along with wedding and lifestyle guru Colin Cowie.
She co-starred in the film The Arena with fellow Playmate Karen McDougal in 2001.
She was the St. Pauli Girl in 2003.
By appearing in the 1999 James Bond short story Midsummer Night's Doom by Raymond Benson, in which 007 visits the Playboy Mansion, Dergan has the distinction of being the first real person (rather than an actress playing a non-fictional character) ever to be awarded the status of Bond girl after having a relationship with Bond (in the story).
