Find out more about Angelyne’s journey from enigmatic Billboard queen to political hopeful who takes on Gavin Newsom

BEFORE there was Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian, there was “Billboard Queen” Angelyne.

The icon, 71, rose to fame in the 1980s after appearing on mysterious billboards in Los Angeles that just read “Angelyne” and recently tried to unseat California Gov. Gavin Newsom.

For decades, Angelyne remained a mystery to the public as her backstory and how exactly she became famous remained unknown.

She was known to cruise around LA in a bright pink Corvette, flaunting her platinum blonde hair and extensive cosmetic surgery.

Now a series starring Emmy Rossum has put her back in the spotlight.

The series is based on a 2017 Hollywood Reporter article that revealed the bombshell’s true identity.

Angelyne, real name Renee Goldberg, was born to Holocaust survivors and grew up in Los Angeles.

She was born in Poland in 1950 and her parents, who met in the Chmielnik ghetto during World War II, survived various concentration camps.

After the war, she and her parents emigrated to Israel, where they lived in an ultra-Orthodox community of Hasidic Jews.

The family moved to Los Angeles in 1952, where Angelyne’s father worked as a toolmaker.

Her mother died of cancer when she was 14, and her father soon married another Holocaust survivor and had another child.

After attending high school in the San Fernando Valley, Angelyne married the son of a Beverly Hills manager and moved to Hollywood.

The couple divorced in 1969 and the documents are the last trace of Renee Goldberg.

But this isn’t the story told by Angelyne herself, who constructed the story of an only child and an orphan who moved to LA to pursue her dreams.

Keeping her true identity a secret became part of her personality after she became known as a bombshell on billboards and posters across LA.

Angelyne reportedly used the billboards to promote her music career and later starred in various films and magazines, becoming a pop culture icon.

Before the influencer era, she was known for “not being famous for anything she once said was so much fun.”

Lately, however, Angelyne has said she’s famous for her “essence.”

In 2003 she ran for governor in California.

And in 2021, she ran for governor again, becoming the no-party candidate who received the most votes in the failed recall election against California Gov. Gavin Newsom.

Angelyne is now posting about her life on social media where she has over 27,000 followers.
