Vanessa was a ring girl with dreams of breaking out of that mold in 2008. She wanted to be an announcer, and given her physique and admiration for Gina Carano, it's possible she was even curious about getting into the arena. But little did she know that EliteXC was crumbling beneath her feet. Later that year, the company would announce cessation of operations.
Vanessa went on to take some nude pictures for Playboy's "Sexy Housewives," which dominate her Google search results to this day.
