In the 1980s, Michelle became quite popular among American TV audiences. Starting off her acting career, Michelle appeared on Glow: Gorgeous Ladies Of Wrestling in 1986.
In 1987, she acted in the TV series Poww: Powerful Women of Wrestling. Michelle’s acting career took a backseat in the next decade. In the early 2000s, Michelle ran a talent agency.
However, in 2004, she revived her TV career and participated in The Apprentice. She took part in the show as a fitness model. Apart from this, she has also guest-starred alongside her husband, Johnny Damon, in the reality TV show Below Deck Mediterranean.
Talking about her experience of being on the show, Michelle revealed to Decider,
“We hadn’t actually seen the show before. Of course, now we’re big fans and have been watching it. One of my friends told me about it, and then she sent an email, I showed it to Johnny, and he was like, ‘Looks amazing!’ The boat was amazing, the location was amazing.”
Marriage to Johnny Damon
Michelle Mangan and Johnny Damon got married in 2004 in a lavish ceremony held at the Orlando Ritz-Carlton Grande Lake Resort. They met in 2002 in a Houston-based restaurant.
After officially separating from Angela in 2002, Johnny and Michelle started their very public relationship. The former baseball player proposed to his lady love a gorgeous 8-carat canary-yellow diamond on Martha’s Vineyard. Their 2004 wedding was a grand affair that boasted the attendance of many celebrity guests.
Likewise, Johnny’s friend and AC/DC singer Brian Johnson sang during their reception. Johnny looked as handsome as ever, wearing a classic black tuxedo and a silver tie. The Boston Red Sox player sported his long signature locks and walked down the aisle as “Brand New Man” by Brooks & Dunn played in the background.
Michelle Mangan looked stunning as she wore a gorgeous ivory-colored custom-made Vera Wang wedding gown. She adorned her hair with a long veil and entered the wedding venue to Lauryn Hill’s “Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You.”
Madelyn and Jackson, Johnny Damon’s kids from his previous marriage, were the flower girl and ring bearer respectively. Their wedding was winter-themed, whereas the reception was “completely rock ‘n’ roll.” Following their star-studded nuptials, Michelle and Johnny jetted off to their honeymoon on a mystery island located in the Caribbean.
Not too long before their wedding, Johnny had professed his love for Michelle and said in an interview, “Michelle’s a great girl, and it’s time I started settling down. She’s had a huge influence on me. She lets me be me. She’s amazing.”
Similarly, in an interview with PEOPLE, Michelle talked about her relationship with Johnny Damon. She revealed,
“When I first saw him, I thought he was really cute and he was quiet. His brother tells me I created a monster because he knows he can be himself and act silly.”
Although Johnny Damon and Michelle Mangan have been married for over 18 years, the couple continues to be still very much in love. Michelle and Johnny share six children.
Johnny Damon and Angela Vannice
Johnny Damon and Angela Vannice were married from 1992 to 2002. The pair were high school sweethearts and decided to tie the knot when they were just 19 years old. In their 10-year-long marriage, Johnny and Angela welcomed twins Madelyn and Jackson.
Although Johnny and Angela’s marriage seemed perfect from the outside, the reality was something else entirely. In 2002, the couple was going through a rough patch in the marriage, and rumors were rife that Johnny Damon was unfaithful to Angela.
In his autobiography, the former professional baseball outfielder revealed that he started a relationship with Michelle while still married to Angela. Many tabloids circulated this news in 2002 when Johnny’s marriage to Angela was nearing its end.
This wasn’t, however, the first time Johnny cheated on Angela. He confessed in his autobiography that his infidelity started in 1999, not too long after the birth of Johnny and Angela’s twins, Madelyn and Jackson.
He even painted Angela negatively in his book and described that she “had no idea what she was getting into when she became a ballplayer’s wife.” Moreover, Johnny admitted that the two of them got married too early, due to which it didn’t occur to him “what I’d be giving up.”
Furthermore, he wrote, “I knew I loved women, I just didn’t know the temptations were out there.” Likewise, the KC Royals Player of the Year described his wife’s nagging and untrusting nature and said, “I wanted to live, have fun, not pick out furniture.”
Reacting to Damon’s accusations, Angela revealed in an interview,
“We had a good marriage for a long time but now with Johnny, it’s all about him — his haircut, his facial hair, his book, his movie. Other players, if they want their name in the paper, they put up the numbers on the field. That’s how you respect the game.”
In addition, she also disclosed that before finding out about his extramarital affairs, she and Johnny were considering renewing their vows. Similarly, they were also planning to have another child in 2002. Unfortunately, none of their plans could come to fruition as Johnny left behind Angela and their 10-year long marriage to start a relationship with Michelle Mangan.
