Eloise Lucille DeJoria née Broady is an American actress, model, and the wife of haircare and alcohol mogul John Paul DeJoria. She grew up in Texas with a deep love for the outdoors, playing in the woods where she would either build a fort or pretend to be Ann Margaret. She and her friends even used to ride horses to Buffalo Bayou. Leaving this picturesque existence, she travelled to Los Angeles in pursuit of a career in modelling. Also credited as Eloise Dejoria, Eloise Schmitt, Elois DeJoria or Eloise DeJoria, she was picked as Playboy’s Playmate for April 1988. Since then, she has guest-starred in several films and TV series, been involved in multiple charities, featured on the covers of many fitness magazines, and also fulfilled the duties of a wife and mother remarkably and diligently. Eventually returning to Texas with her husband, she has built a safe haven for the entire DeJoria clan in the Lone Star State.

  • In 1984, Eloise debuted on the big screen in the musical comedy ‘Songwriter’. She appeared in the episode, ‘The Second Time Around’ (1986), of the prime time television soap opera ‘Dallas’. Her portrayal of Tawny in the 1989 comedy ‘Weekend at Bernie’s’ garnered her some popularity. Since then, she has played a series of small roles in various television and film projects, including ‘The Big Tease’ (1999), ‘Friday Night Lights’ (2004), and ‘Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps’ (2010).
  • In the 2014 neo-noir action crime film ‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill For’ (directed by Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller) she was cast as Joey’s (Ray Liotta) wife.
