Shauna Sand is Playboy’s Playmate of the Month for May 1996. The San Diego native spent nearly her entire life in front of the camera. At age 9 she began modeling when a local photographer discovered her. Six years later she signed with Elite Model Management in New York.
In addition to working for one of the most successful modeling agencies in the world, Shauna decided to continue her education after high school. She traveled to France and earned a degree in international business management from the American University of Paris. She learned to speak fluent French during her four years overseas.
Before appearing in Playboy she had a small role on the TV series Renegade. She met the show’s star Lorenzo Lamas on set and the two began a relationship. They married in April 1996. The couple had three children together: Alexandra, Victoria, and Isabella. She later played a recurring role on another Lamas’ led TV series, Air America.
After she and Lorenzo divorced in 2002, Shauna continued finding acting work. She guest-starred on episodes of Charmed and Las Vegas. In 2012 she landed a supporting role on the French television show Hollywood Girls. She played the main antagonist on the first three seasons.
While out on the town Shauna is often photographed wearing very high heels. At only 5’4” she likes to make herself taller. She also designs her own Lucite high heels. She says wearing stilettos is a good workout for her legs. She even taught her daughters how to walk in high heels at a young age.
In 2006 Shauna married Romain Chavent but divorced him two years later. She then married Laurent Homburger in January 2011, only to end the relationship four months later.
