Donna D’Errico is an American actress and model.
She has a daughter with her former husband, musician, songwriter, and radio host Nikki Sixx; and a son from another relationship.
About her background, she has stated:
I was born in Dothan, Alabama, while my father was serving a tour of duty in the Vietnam war. He was an army Captain from a big Italian family in Connecticut, and my mom was a sweet Southern belle. After returning from the war, we moved to a city just outside Fort Benning, Georgia named Columbus. My brother, sister, and I were all raised Catholic (my mother converted), and attended Catholic school. Most of my teachers were nuns. There was a convent on the school grounds, and all the nuns wore full habits.
Donna’s paternal grandfather was John/Giovanni D’Errico (the son of Pietro D’Errico and Maria/Mary Giovanna Perrone). Giovanni was born in Castel Morrone, Campania, Italy.
Donna’s paternal grandmother was Anette/Annette Dudek (the daughter of Matway/Matwey Dudek and Apolonia/Lena Sienkiewicz). Anette was born in Connecticut or New York. Matway was born in Volhynia, Poland. Apolonia was born in New Jersey, to Polish parents, Joseph Sienkiewicz and Rosalia Kochanski.
Donna’s maternal grandparents were Shelby Bradley and Mary Iris Helton (the daughter of James Helton and Mamie Campbell). Mary was born in Alabama.
