If you used to tune into CBS's network in the early 1990s then surely the name Dian Parkinson rings a bell. Yeah, the model from the CBS's television show The Price Is Right.
She was Bob Barker's Beauty on the TV series and to be honest, many people watched the show just to see the model. But after quitting the show, Diana didn't make a big career for herself.
So after all these years, many people are asking questions if she's married and settled with her husband and children or still single?
Dian Parkinson-Married Or Still Single
It's one thing when a celeb tries to cover his/her personal life from the public but to completely disappear from the public eye is unthinkable.
In 1993, Perkinson left to show in order to build her career in a different field. Then the same year, she posed for the Playboy magazine. She had also featured in the magazine in December 1991.
She was one of the famous models of that time and many directors and producers were dying to shoot a movie with her.
Her personal life was always a big mystery and no one ever knew about her relationship and dating status. Dian was one of those rare models who would never mention the slightest bit a detail related to personal life.
According to various websites, she dated American photographer Bert Stern in the late 1980s. But as none of them spoke anything on the matter, it all turned out to be a rumor.
Currently, the 72-years-old model is not single and not dating anyone. She's been out of the limelight for more than a decade and many people wonder if she ever gonna return to the big screen.
