Biography: Belinda Jo Carlisle was born on August 17, 1958, in Hollywood, California, to Harold and Joanne Carlisle. Her parents separated when she was young, and after her mom remarried, to Walt Kurczeski, Belinda took on the last name of her stepdad for several years. The family frequently moved as they searched for stability, and Belinda was often tasked with babysitting her three younger brothers and three younger sisters. She soon rebelled against her strict upbringing and the responsibility of her childhood. "By the time I hit 14, I'd gone really wild," Carlisle later said. "I ran away from home, smoked pot, dropped acid ... you name it, I'd try it." [Read Ms. Carlisle’s full bio via Biography.com]
