Former Miss USA Kenya Moore stars as sexy stripper athlete Champagne, the bootylicious Bonsai in Cloud 9, available on Fox Home Entertainment DVD January 3rd.
Kenya spoke about her role:
“When I first saw the idea of strippers playing volleyball I thought, ‘Hmm, that’s original.’ Ha ha ha! But I thought it was fun. It’s a fun movie. It’s a fun idea. I got a chance to look at it from a different perspective. It’s something I haven’t done before. And it’s comedy. It’s fun, it’s for all ages and it’s gonna be great.”
“I have played volleyball before. I played in high school and I was really good. I was on the varsity team. Cass Technical High School in Detroit. My second year I pretty much excelled in it. It was a lot of fun. I love this game. I love this game and I’ve been a fan of Gabrielle Reece for a long time and when I read that I had an opportunity to actually play in a game with her, even though it’s in a film, I was like, ‘Wow!’ This is so surreal, to be able to play with someone I idolized.”
