Missy Margera (maiden name Rothstein) was born in Springfield, Pennsylvania. She attended West Chester East High School, where she met her future husband Bam Margera. She graduated from Penn State University with a Bachelors degree in communications. Missy first reached the public eye when she and Bam starred in the MTV reality show Bam's Unholy Union. The show documented the weeks leading up to the couple's wedding. During the filming of the series she was approached by Playboy to pose nude with Bam as a guest photographer, and she obliged, though reluctantly as was chronicled on the show. They married on February 2, 2007, at the Loews Hotel in downtown Philadelphia.
