Girl on Girl: Reby Sky and Jessica Vaugn

Reby Sky is a curvacious Playboy Cyber Girl of the Month favorite and also a personal favorite of mine! With her larger-than-life personality, the official NY Giants Girl, model and radio personality turned pro wrestler talks camera time, love, and setting the record straight for all those mispronouncing her name.

Queens, NY – Currently residing in Cameron, North Carolina.

32DD-24-36 / 5’5″.

When you meet new people and introduce yourself as a professional wrestler, do people doubt you or make you elaborate, considering your petite frame and oozing femininity? I mean, you’re no Chyna and that’s not a bad thing!
The reaction a lot of times is disbelief, then shock, which are both reactions I love.

I understand that the mainstream ideal of a female wrestler is more of a bodybuilder type (unless you are a fan of pro-wrestling and keep up with the current main promotions) and I like defying that stereotype. Even so, identifying myself as a pro-wrestler now — as opposed to a model, which was primarily my career for years — is a catch-22. Casual wrestling fans are either disappointed or surprised that I’m not a “She-Hulk” and diehard wrestling fans hold the fact that I model against me, as if it somehow makes me less aggressive or determined in my training/in the ring. It doesn’t.

It’s difficult to find a balance and try to make everyone happy, but I’ll always stay true to myself. Playboy opened up some amazing opportunities to me & was the perfect outlet for me to express my free-spirited and feminine side. I love being able to express the rest of me through wrestling. For me, wrestling is a passion like no other.

Describe life with love interest Matt Hardy.
I thank God every day that I get to have the real Matt back after a pretty rough year. He is my truest love. My trainer. My inspiration. At times we are polar opposites, but we keep each other focused & balanced. I feel very fortunate that we’re able to work together on as many projects as we do and that we get to travel together for wrestling because I believe working together brings a couple closer. And we have the best sex ever. A lot.

I think you are one of the sexiest Cyber Girls ever! Was it a goal you had to pose for Playboy or did it just kinds happen?
The fact that my girlcrush just said that makes me want to fangirl right now… ;)  My initial run with Playboy happened without me even knowing it was happening — I had a shoot with a friend (Michael Dweck) who was commissioned to photograph an upcoming “Girls of…” pictorial, but I never thought in a million years I would actually make the cut.

He called me several months later with news that his work would be published in the next issue of Playboy magazine so I congratulated him and he was like, “No, stupid. They’re photos of YOU.” My “Girls of Montauk” pictorial really helped launch my modeling career and opened the door for awesome opportunities like Cyber Girl of the Week, and later, Cyber Girl of the Month.

I wouldn’t change a thing.

You’re Howard Stern Girl of the Year 2009, awesome! What personal insight can you give us about Howard himself, the show, etc.
Becoming Miss Howard Stern of the Year was another title I never thought I would actually receive.

I was chosen by the show to become Miss Howard Stern of the Month, but the fact the Howard Stern Show fans voted for me as Miss Howard Stern of the Year made it all even more amazing. I appeared on the show several times, but my biggest interview was when I accepted my “of the year” award. I went into the studio that day thinking, “I’m not going to divulge too much information, I’m going to behave, etc…”, but Howard is REALLY good at what he does; He is not only charming, but challenging, and I can’t turn down a challenge. The moment he said, “Oh, are you afraid to answer that ?” my inhibitions were lost and my loudmouth started spewing out the truth of whatever he was inquiring about. He really knows what to say to get the dirt, and he certainly did !

One thing you can’t live without:
My Macbook Pro — it’s how I keep in touch with everyone, what I work on… I can be a bit anti-social at times, so it’s sort of my window to the world.

A decision you are thankful you made:
To follow my dreams, every single one of them. It’s worked out pretty well so far.

Personal Motto:
The grass isn’t greener on the other side — it’s green where you water it.

You have an unusual tattoo in your mouth, do explain!
I’m a passionate person and I’m VERY vocal. If I love something, everyone will know and the same goes for if I hate or disagree with something. My mouth has gotten me in trouble on more than a few occasions, but I feel like honesty is the best policy. A lot of people don’t like the fact that I’m so honest, but I’ll always stand up for what I believe in and you’ll never get anything but the truth from my lips… And that is precisely what I’ve got tattooed in my mouth — “Truth” — on my lips.

You are gorgeous, but also very comfortable with the camera! What do you attribute your camera presence to?
Aw, thanks ! I grew up immersed in the arts and I have my parents to thank for that. I was involved in dance and music from a very young age and the performance bug stuck with me. Growing up in New York also has a lot to do with it. The arts are a big part of the culture in New York.

Did you ever have stage fright or have you always been fearless with TV, radio, and photo shoots?
I am absolutely terrified before most performances; wrestling, television, radio, etc. The only medium I’ve never been petrified of has been photography, whether it be modeling or capturing the photos myself. I love creating, it’s where I feel most comfortable.

Best gift you’ve ever received?
My Movado watch. It was a birthday gift and I felt like a princess that day. That doesn’t happen very often.

Who do you consider your professional heroes?
It’s unfortunate that my childhood heroes have since gone on to paths that I wouldn’t want to aspire to now. I do, however, get to learn from their mistakes.

A guy I call a boyfriend better never:
Disrespect me. I never ask anything of a partner that I wouldn’t already be willing to give in return, tenfold. Respect is a big moral theme in my life because of how I was raised.

We all hear misconceptions about us! What is something you have to correct fans about you?
MY NAME. It’s pronounced REB-ee. Rhymes with Debbie.

You also shoot pictures yourself. In fact, you do amazing self portraits! How did you get into photography? Thank goodness you do because your fans go nuts for your youtube page!
Thanks ! I’ve always loved photography and I am self-taught. Over the years I’ve substituted homemade light setups for professional equipment and eventually went to school for it, but my methods still aren’t “conventional” and they probably never will be.

Schools can’t really teach art; you can’t teach someone to be creative or expressive, you can only provide them with knowledge and the tools to encourage them to do so. There’s a saying in the photography world that I love to reference, “The best camera is the one that’s with you,” because really, it’s not what you’ve got, it’s how you use it. I can certainly translate that into almost every aspect of my life and career. I’m venturing into video work now, which is exciting for me. I’m the kind of person who always needs to create, learn and expand. I constantly need new things to stimulate and inspire me.

Where can we keep up with you online?
