Life and career
1974–1994: Early life
Adams was born in Vicenza, Italy, the fourth of seven children of American parents Kathryn née Hicken and Richard Adams.She has four brothers and two sisters.Her father, a US serviceman, was stationed at Caserma Ederle at the time of her birth, and took the family from base to base before settling in Castle Rock, Colorado, when she was eight or nine years old Thereafter, her father sang professionally in restaurants, while her mother was a semi-professional bodybuilder. was raised as a Mormon, although her family left the church after her parents' divorce when she was 11 years old. Regarding her religious upbringing, she said, "... it instilled in me a value system I still hold true. The basic 'Do unto others...', that was what was hammered into me. And love.
Throughout her years at Douglas County High School, she sang in the school choir and trained as an apprentice at a local dance company with ambitions of becoming a ballerina.Her parents had hoped that she would continue her athletic training, which she gave up to pursue dance, as it would have given her a chance to obtain a college scholarship. Adams later reflected on her decision not to go to college: "I wasn't one of those people who enjoyed being in school. I regret not getting an education, though." After graduating from high school, she moved to Atlanta with her motherDeciding that she was not gifted enough to be a professional ballerina, she entered musical theater, which she found was "much better suited to personality".Upon turning 18, Adams supported herself by working as a greeter at a Gap store while performing in community theaterFor a few weeks after graduating high school she took her first full-time job as a hostess at Hooters, a fact that became her "entire press career" for a while Adams left the job three weeks later after having saved enough money to buy her first car. She admitted: "... there was definitely an innocence to my interpretation of what Hooters was about. Though I did learn, quickly, that short shorts and beer don't mix!
