Denise graduated from her local high school in 1994 and then left for Los Angeles to pursue her modeling career. She has no college degree, but she took several courses to become a massage therapist and then a personal fitness trainer.
Career as a model
When Denise came to the US in 1994, she got her first job as a waitress in the bar “Hermosa Beach”. While working there, she was discovered by a talent scout from one of the local talent agencies and invited to sign a contract to work as a model. Since it was Denise’s life dream, she immediately agreed, left the bar and also quit her side job as a massage therapist.
The first period of her work as a model was difficult enough as she still did not speak English well, so during photo shoots she struggled to understand what photographers wanted from her. Eventually, however, she learned the language and overcame that difficulty.

Personal life, husband Jerry Trlica
Denise keeps her private life low key – there is no idea why she took her professional name as she is known to be married to Jerry Trlica who is also from the Czech Republic. Jerry is a carpenter, owner of JLT Restoration Company, founded in 1980 and based in Pasadena, California. Jerry was born in 1956, which means he is about 64 years old, as of 2020. Jerry married Denise when she was 19 years old and helped her develop her modeling career. Denise gave birth to their son Jacob in 2000.
In April 2020, there were several speculations about Denise and Jerry’s relationship as they are rumours to have split. No source has claimed about the official divorce process, but the information circulating on social media.
Drug smuggling controversy
In 2012, Denise was used to lure Paul Frampton, a 68-year-old professor of physics and astronomy from the University of North Carolina, to bring a suitcase full of cocaine through the Buenos Aires airport. In fact, Denise knew about it when she was reached by the police after they caught Professor Frampton carrying over 4 pounds of drugs in the case that he was convinced would be passed on to…Denise Milani herself.
The scammers used the photo of the model to create a fake social media account and used it to get Paul Frampton to run the smuggling operation. No one knows what the con artists promised Frampton for his actions. During surgery, Denise was enjoying her family vacation in Prague, with her husband and son, when she received a call from the authorities. In the end, Denise turned out to be clueless about the situation – her photo was used many times without her permission. Paul Frampton was sentenced to 16 years in prison, while Denise had a hard time recovering from the shock: ‘I’ve been in all the magazines here. I was in shock, shaking and not sleeping. I had never heard of Professor Frampton before last week.
I have a lot of sympathy for him, although I have to wonder how he could be so naive,” she shared in her interview with the Daily Mail UK in 2012. Denise also said she was afraid to travel, afraid that something might to happen. to her or her family.
