Chantal Westerman could be one of the most interesting women in the world. From her storied career with Good Morning America (ask her about her interview with the US men’s Volleyball team while they were naked!) to being a committed advocate for all animals, this woman has lived life to the fullest!

This former Sexiest Woman in Dallas now spends a lot of her time crawling in the mud and squeezing into tight places to rescue any creature and feels that her mission in Idaho is to advocate for change regarding animal cruelty and to see that the rules are enforced!

She estimates that this time she has rescued over a 1,000 dogs and puppies! From squishy little pups to the “unconventionally pretty”, she can home them all.

 

“I see the pretty” – Chantal Westerman

 

Her time in front of the camera was amazing, as Chantal has conducted revealing interviews with all the stars and just to name just a few, here we go … (inhales) Cher, Michael Caine, Tom Cruise, Billy Crystal, Bette Davis, Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson, Whoopie Goldberg, Shirley MacLaine, Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone, Sharon Stone, Denzel Washington, and Robin Williams. Whew!

When Bellissimo’s owner and founder, Terry, was asked about her friend Chantal, she made sure to emphasize that the real star is Chantal.

 

She is a force to be reckoned with!”

 

“ ‘A force to be reckoned with’ is a perfect way to describe Chantal Westerman.” says Terry, “She approaches the world head on! She means what she says and does whatever it takes to make something happen. She has been at the top of the world and in the depths of despair, only to reinvent herself and rise again, better than before. Most people here recognize Chantal from her years in TV, but what she is really known for is her activism and her love of any animal. I personally have two beloved dogs living with my husband and I, from her. She has canoed into the house where hurricanes have destroyed homes to rescue animals and they were there, waiting for loving hands to crawl into the basement to collect them. That is Chantal Westerman. Her kindness knows no boundaries, her friendships are true, and she is the real deal.”

 

This is why she is our woman crush this Wednesday!
