Their honeymoon was in Dubai. During an appearance on LA Ink in 2008, Bam told Kat Von D about $ 13,000 in damages that occurred during her wedding celebration, explaining, ‘I was ready for this, though. I was like, ‘I’m inviting the Jackass crew. If something doesn’t break, that’s not good. ”
Bam was taken to the hospital by paramedics and state agents after Missy called emergency health services following a four-day alcohol binge in July 2009. Regarding the alcohol binge, he said: ‘I could divorce … alcohol helps’. In October 2010, he told Howard Stern that he and Melissa lived in separate cities, meet once a week, and that she knew he had girlfriends. They divorced in November 2012.

CKY BAM MARGERA
Bam began shooting videos of himself and his friends doing skateboards and stunts, which eventually turned into the CKY video series. He then independently released CKY. CKY2K and CKY3. CKY4 was also released. CKY stands for ‘Camp Kill Yourself’, which is a shared name with his brother Jess Margera’s band, CKY.
The band called themselves CKY as a tribute to the movie Sleepaway Camp. The early videos feature many of Margera’s friends, including Ryan Dunn, Brandon DiCamillo , Rake Yohn , Chris Raab, Brandon Novak, and others forming a loose collective known as the CKY Crew. The story and also the relationship between the video and the band’s projects are strongly interconnected.
BAM MARGERA JACKASS
Following CKY’s success, Jeff Tremaine, a former Big Brother editor, spotted Bam’s videos and enlisted him on the team that would eventually become MTV’s Jackass. Bam and Ryan Dunn became the mainstays of the cast while the other members of the CKY crew played supporting roles to varying degrees.
Bam went on to appear in Jackass: The Movie, Jackass Number Two, Jackass 3D, and Jackass 3.5. Several skits in the first Jackass movie were CKY-style pieces shot in and around West Chester, but similar scenes in the second movie were removed after the arrest of Vincent Margera Bam’s uncle, suspected of inappropriately touching two minors.
BAM MARGERA VIVA LA BAM
After Jackass, Bam received his own MTV series entitled Viva La Bam. The show ran for five seasons between 2003 and 2005. It followed Margera and her crew as they performed various stunts and missions. It was filmed primarily in West Chester, Pennsylvania, but has also visited New Orleans, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Brazil, Finland, Mexico, Amsterdam and Transylvania. In addition to the regular series, special episodes included ‘Viva La Spring Break’ and a ‘lost’ episode included on the Viva La Bands CD.
After the show, in 2007, Bam got engaged to Melissa Rothstein and the wedding was filmed for Bam’s Unholy Union as a follow-up to Viva la Bam. The show follows Margera, Melissa and their friends in preparation for the wedding. Also in 2008, she had a ‘leading, non-sexual role’ in a Gina Lynn pornographic film titled The Fantastic Whores 4 starring Brandon Novak. He appeared on Nitro Circus in 2009.

As of 2016, he was no longer part of the team. Margera has also been sponsored several times by Speed Metal Bearings, Adio Footwear, Electric Sunglasses, Volcom, Landspeed Wheels, Destroyer Trucks, Destructo Trucks and Fairman’s Skateshop.
In 2017, Margera was without major sponsorship and has effectively retired from skateboarding professionally. However, he returned to skate casually, which led to a renewed partnership with Element Skateboards to celebrate the brand’s 25th anniversary by releasing a series of ten of its most memorable deck designs. Between September 6, 2017 and November 8, 2017, the cards were released on a weekly basis. Each deck is signed by Bam and limited to fifty units.
DOCUMENTARY BAM MARGERA
Bam announced that he had been working on an autobiographical documentary film in January 2015, which he hoped to premiere in the near future. The first trailer for the film, titled I Need Time To Stay Useless, was released on YouTube and other media on April 9, 2015. The film is mostly about Bam’s life after the death of his close friend and co-star, Ryan Dunn, died in a car accident in 2011.
According to Bam, the film ran for three years and will give viewers a glimpse into his childhood, career and rise to fame, focusing primarily on his recovery from Dunn’s death. Musician Brent Hinds of the band Mastodon will play Ryan in what have been described as ‘dramatic fantasy interludes’ that tie the film together, while recalling what Margera considers to be her ‘darkest moments’ after Ryan’s death.
BAM MARGERA MUSIC
In 2005, Bam founded a music label, Filthy Note Records. He has directed music videos for Clutch, Turbonegro, Viking Skull, Vains of Jenna and several for CKY.
