Lisa Coles Guerrero
April 9, 1964
Chicago, Illinois, U.S.
Lisa Guerrero (born April 9, 1964) is an American investigative journalist, keynote speaker, actress, former sportscaster, host and model. Since 2006, Guerrero has been an investigative correspondent for the nationally syndicated newsmagazine Inside Edition.
Guerrero was born in Chicago, Illinois, the daughter of Walter Coles, an American of English descent, and Lucy Guerrero, who was from Chile. Guerrero spent her childhood living in San Diego, California, and Huntington Beach, California. In 1972, when she was aged eight, her mother died of lymphoma cancer. To cope with the loss, her father enrolled her in theater therapy.
Early career and acting roles
Guerrero began her show-business career in the 1980s as a cheerleader for the Los Angeles Rams, after which she became Entertainment Director for the Atlanta Falcons and New England Patriots. In the 1990s, she starred in Aaron Spelling's Sunset Beach as the female jewel thief Francesca Vargas. She also guest-starred in Frasier (the "Odd Man Out" and "Frasier's Imaginary Friend" episodes), The George Lopez Show and In the Heat of the Night.
In 1992, Guerrero, billed under her given name Lisa Coles, made a brief appearance in the superhero film Batman Returns. Guerrero's character, credited as "Volunteer Bimbo" tells the film's villain, Penguin (Danny DeVito) that he is the coolest role-model a young person could have. The Penguin retorted by saying that she's the hottest young person a role-model could have.
In 1998, she was cast as Wonderful Woman in the comedy feature Super Hero: The Movie. It wasn't released until February 2021. According to the movie trailer, it was thought to be destroyed in a fire but a copy was found decades later.
In 1999, Lisa Guerrero moved to the Fox Network, where she participated in such shows as Sports Geniuses, Fox Overtime, Fox Extra Innings and the Toughman competition shows. Guerrero travelled to Egypt to tape the special Opening the Tombs of the Golden Mummies and starred in the San Diego Chargers magazine-style television show. Guerrero also co-hosted The Best Damn Sports Show Period, alongside Tom Arnold, John Salley, John Kruk and Michael Irvin.
Monday Night Football
In 2003, she left The Best Damn Sports Show Period to join ABC's Monday Night Football television crew. The show hired her with the intention of making her a sideline reporter — personality-driven and feature-driven — but later changed their minds. Guerrero left the Monday Night Football team after one season.
On June 15, 2006, Guerrero became a correspondent on the TV news magazine Inside Edition. She later became the show's Chief Investigative Correspondent and has worked on undercover stories and investigative reports. In 2011, she won the National Headliner Award for Best Investigative Report, beating Anderson Cooper for her undercover exposé on air duct cleaning scams.
Lisa has been nominated for a Prism Award for her story on the dangers of alcohol and boating. She was also nominated for a Genesis Award nomination for her investigation into horse slaughter farms in Florida.
She has continued to act. She made a brief cameo appearance in the Brad Pitt feature film Moneyball as well as a recurring role in TNT's television drama series Southland. Guerrero also co-hosted VH1's game show The World Series of Pop Culture. In 2010, Guerrero hosted the first live webcast of the 82nd Academy Awards red carpet for Oscar.com, integrating viewers' questions from Facebook into celebrity interviews. In January 2012, Guerrero hosted Shooting Stars: Salute to Service, a reality competition show on the Velocity channel.
In 2021, Super Heroes: The Movie was released on Amazon streaming where she stars as Wonderful Woman. This was her first leading role in a feature film. It was shot in 1998 but it was never released at the time because it was thought to be destroyed in a fire.
