As a performing model, Sky got her career to a start with the Amira Mor International Entertainment Company, a belly dance troupe. While there, she appeared in several belly dance instructional DVDs which were shot for sale. 2005 saw her branch into showbiz when she took up a supporting role in the off-Broadway musical, Secrets of the Desert. By being part of the show, Reby Sky built her portfolio touring several top-notch venues such as the Duke Theatre, 42nd Street, Times Square, the DiCapo Opera House, Queens Theatre and New York City’s Radio City Music Hall, where she performed for The Beatles drummer, Ringo Starr.
Reby Sky’s modeling carer has been a gateway of opportunities for her, seeing her go beyond the conventional runway gig into making appearances on TV shows and music videos. Some of which include Midnight Spike (Spike TV), Date Patrol, Faking It and Más Maíz. In July of 2007, she was featured in a nude pictorial in Playboy magazine-themed The Girls of Montauk.
Exactly three years later, she appeared as Cyber Girl of the Week the July 2010 edition of the Playboy Cyber Club. For the November edition of the magazine, Sky was named Cyber Girl of the Month. Asides Playboy, the model has also appeared in several well-read magazines such as Esquire Magazine, Supermodels Unlimited, GQ and STUFF. But there’s so much more to know about the Puerto Rican wrestler. Let’s take you through other interesting facts about her below.
