As a woman, I have always been fascinated with Playboy. I remember the first time I looked at the magazine, and I was in complete awe of such classic poised beauty. I was fortunate enough to shoot with celebrity photographer Paul Buceta and do a test shoot for the magazine. Valeria Nova did such an exquisite job on my make-up and hair. It immediately got the ok and after a long 14 hour day, we completed the shoot and sent it off to Playboy. There was lots of anticipation because I had no idea about when or what issue I would be in. Then to my astonishment, I received a letter from a fan saying that I was on the Cover of Playboy’s Lingerie April/ May 2011 issue. My first cover and it was with Playboy. I couldn’t have been happier. My family, friends, and fans rolled in with such great words of support and with that I am truly grateful.
