Caprice Valerie Bourret (born October 24, 1971) is an American lingerie model and sometime actress, television personality and businesswoman. Much of her career has been in the United Kingdom where she is often known by her first name.
Bourret became a cheerleader at age 13. Contrary to a popular trivia item, she never won the title of Miss Teen California, nor even participated in the pageant. In the years following, Bourret became one of the UK's better known models. She has had her breasts (now insured for £50,000) augmented, which may have led to her selection as a model for Wonderbra. She appeared on the covers of GQ, Cosmopolitan, Esquire, Maxim, FHM and the 1998 Swimsuit Issue of Sports Illustrated. Bourret also posed nude in the March, 2000 issue of Playboy magazine. She was voted GQ magazine's Woman of the Year and Maxim's International Woman of the Year in three consecutive years. She has also been featured in television ad campaigns for Diet Coke and Pizza Hut. She continues to be the face of Paradise Poker.com, and also appears on billboards and advertisements in London.
Bourret is becoming known as a business woman, having launched a series of lingerie, using her image and name. The lingerie is sold by the UK department store chain, Debenhams and lingerie retailer figleaves. The line was well received and deemed a success, having sold millions of items, and is now in its sixth season. Consequently, Bourret has decided to expand her designing interest into a larger industry, and is now planning to market her lingerie line in North America and Australia.
In 1999, Bourret released her first single as a pop singer, "Oh Yeah" (#24), then follow-up single "Once Around the Sun" (also #24), which was co-written by '90s one-hit wonder Chesney Hawkes.
In early 2005, she appeared on Celebrity Big Brother in the UK, where other contestants implied that she was only taking part in order to boost sales of her products. During a boozy game of 'spin the bottle confessions' on the show, she confessed to thinking about having a lesbian romp.
She also was a cast member on the fifth season of the VH1 reality series The Surreal Life and has previously appeared in the reality shows Celebrities Under Pressure, Celebrities Disfigured, Three Celebrities and a Baby, and Road Raja.
In May 2006 Caprice captained the England Women's team in the Celebrity World Cup Soccer Six tournament, in which they lost to Brazil in the final.
In June 2006 she starred in the English independent movie Perfect Woman, produced by Olympus Productions Limited.
She is currently in South Africa as producer for a run of the hit off-Broadway musical Debbie Does Dallas at the Johannesburg Civic Theatre from January 16 to February 18, 2007.
In August 2006 Caprice, defended by Nick Freeman, was banned from driving for one year and ordered to pay £2,500 costs when she was found guilty of drunk-driving. It also emerged that she had the previous year deceived her lawyers with a forged letter reported to be written by Nancy Davies. She fooled them into using it to obtain money illegally for her from a newspaper who had said her future mother in law called her a golddigger. Caprice repaid the money and avoided facing a criminal charge.
