This is a shocking transformation for a well-known and full-of-potential bodybuilder. So what happened? Denise got into bodybuilding around 1988-1989 and was known as the “Golden Panther”. She took a huge amount of steroids and by 1993 was runner up in the Ms Olympia contest and won $20,000 – quite an achievement. After 1993 she went back to Texas and studied at a Bible College and then hit the road preaching. He steroid abuse seems to have turned to drug abuse and reported bi-polar disorder.

She was next seen in public for evading arrest in 2012. The reason is still not clear. The reality is that Denise lost the plot and years of steroid and drug abuse reflected very badly on her and yes she does now look more like a man. Let’s remember her as the great bodybuilder she once was:
