Danielle Colby Cushman is a burlesque dancer, fashion designer, and reality television personality. She is best known for co-starring on the television show American Pickers with Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz on History.
Danielle is a hipster renaissance woman. Not only does she star on the History Channel’s freshman hit “American Pickers,” where she manages the shop featured on the show, but she’s a mom, wife, clothing designer, burlesque dancer and former roller derby queen. “Pickers,” an hour-long reality series about a pair of friends who troll Midwestern highways in search of barns filled with valuable antiques, has become a huge hit for the History Channel, racking up nearly 4 million viewers an episode, making it one of cable’s biggest shows. It was also picked up for a second season, which we’re hoping will showcase more of Danielle’s many talents. We caught up with the History Channel hipster via the phone as she put on eyeliner and got ready for work (at noon, no less), to get the scoop on the show, her many tattoos and her varied interests. “American Pickers” airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on History.
