Shane and Sia began modeling at the age of seven when they posed for a layout in a Sears catalog. As adults, their career has included fashion and mainly pin-up modeling. In the early 90's they modeled for Chanel, Thierry Mugler, John Galliano, Jean-Paul Gautier, and others. The LA Times did a cover story about the Barbi Twins when their billboard went up on Sunset Boulevard in 1989, immediately catapulting them to world wide attention. It caught the eye of Hugh Hefner, who put them on the cover of "Playboy" magazine's September, 1991 issue. It broke records by selling out in less than two weeks. 

The twins have chronicled their eating disorders in two books, and have been involved in animal rights issues and rescue for years.  In 2009 they became very active in lobbying against the ROAM bill for wild horses along with Willie Nelson, and continued their support speaking openly about the horse slaughter ban, the ban on de-clawing and the fight against factory farms and animal cruelty.

They will be joined tonight by lawyer, Nathan Winograd, head of "No Kill Advocacy," and Chris Heyde, Animal Lobbyist (www.awionline.org).
