Personal Life

Conan O'Brien mentioned in a 2000 commencement speech that Oxenberg is listed directly ahead of him in the Class of 1985 Harvard freshman Facebook. A contemporary Harvard Crimson piece indicates that she was at least initially in the Class of 1983, dubbing her "queen of the facebook".Oxenberg's first marriage was to the producer Robert Evans, in Beverly Hills, California, on July 12, 1998, but the marriage was annulled nine days later.Oxenberg met actor Casper Van Dien during the filming of the 1999 TV movie The Collectors, and they worked together again in the 1999 Evangelical Christian thriller The Omega Code. On May 8, 1999, they married at Graceland Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas, Nevada. In 2005, the couple appeared in their own reality series, I Married a Princess, which aired on the Lifetime Television channel in the United States and on LIVINGtv in the United Kingdom. Van Dien filed for divorce from Oxenberg in 2015.Oxenberg is the mother of India Riven Oxenberg (1991), whose father is convicted drug smuggler William Weitz Shaffer. Shaffer confirmed he and India had been in contact for years, even while he was in prison. Van Dien had a son and a daughter from a previous marriage, Casper Robert Mitchum Van Dien and actress Caroline Grace Van Dien. Van Dien and Oxenberg have two daughters, Ananda Maya Van Dien (2001) and Celeste Alma Van Dien (2003).While Oxenberg and Van Dien were married, and before she involved India in the NXIVM cult, she was a celebrity ambassador (with Van Dien) for the non-profit organization Childhelp.Oxenberg acknowledged, in November 2017, that she had interactions with Keith Raniere and his NXIVM organization, bringing her daughter India into NXIVM in 2011 for what she thought would be "a self-help, business-oriented program". Oxenberg confirmed that her daughter became heavily involved in the cult, and that she had initiated what proved to be a failed intervention for India. In August 2018, Oxenberg revealed that India had left NXIVM in June, after the arrest of Raniere, and they were working on their relationship. In August 2018, Oxenberg's book Captive: A Mother's Crusade to Save Her Daughter from a Terrifying Cult was published.In 2020, Oxenberg starred in The Vow a documentary series for HBO, directed by Jehane Noujaim and Karim Amer, which follows Oxenberg attempting to rescue her daughter India.

Lessner, which features India speaking out about her experiences for the first time.
