Mini Bio (1)

Barbie Blank was a full-time bikini model for Venus Swimwear until she signed a developmental contract with the WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) on May 13, 2006. John Laurinaitis saw her in a bikini catalog and contacted her modeling agency about hiring her and Victoria Crawford. Barbie signed with WWE after her agent advised her to, and reported to OVW (Ohio Valley Wrestling) for further training. Even though Barbie was called onto the main roster, she flies back to Louisville, Kentucky to OVW once a week and works at house shows as a ring announcer and referee along with Crawford, going by her ring name Alicia Fox. On June 24, 2006 at OVW TV tapings, Barbie made her OVW debut as Kelly and participated in a bikini contest. The other participants in the competition were Roni Jonah, Sosay, ODB (Jessica Kresa), and Daisy Mae. Nobody won the contest because ODB attacked all the divas. Barbie, now known as "Kelly Kelly" had no prior wrestling experience before being signed by the WWE. She is the youngest female member on the WWE/ECW roster starting out at the age of 19. Barbie made her debut known as "Kelly Kelly" on the June 13, 2006 edition of ECW. Her first role on ECW was an exhibitionist that did a series of striptease segments for the audience. As of July 2008, she was drafted to the WWE Raw brand. Then in April 2010, she was drafted to the Smackdown brand. After the brand switches between both shows she was drafted back to Raw in April 2011. She won her first WWE Divas Championship in June against Brie Bella and then lost the title in October to Beth Phoenix. Following many unsuccessful attempts to win the WWE Divas Championship, she later participated in several tag team matches. At WrestleMania XXVIII (2012), she teamed with Extra (1994) correspondent Maria Menounos to defeat Beth Phoenix and Eve Torres in a tag team match. In June, she took time off from WWE before returning in August defeating Eve Torres in a singles match. In September 2012, she was released from WWE. She later stated in an interview that she needed time off to heal from a neck injury and had plans to model.
