Pennsylvania. The Keystone State.
When one thinks of it, one thinks of it’s diverse terrain of mountains and valleys, its place in history as the second state to ratify the Constitution, Liberty Bell, Valley Forge, Gettysburg and views worthy of being considered God’s country.
One sees a state defined and proud of it’s history and unique place in American history, both culturally, economically, socially and culture-wise. One thinks of the always-hot steel mills outside of Pittsburgh in southwestern Pennsylvania that help build the early 20th century American economic juggernaut. Home to some of America’s most storied colleges and universities such as Carnegie Mellon, Duquesne, Pitt, Penn State, Penn, Drexel, LaSalle and Villanova, Pennsylvania is a leading educational hub.
Sports and cultural-wise, The Keystone State boasts 11 national titles between Pitt and Penn State, is the modern-day cradle of hoops in Philadelphia, hockey icons such as Mario Lemieux, Bobby Clarke, Jaromir Jagr and seven Super Bowls between the Steelers and Eagles.
Modeling-wise, it is the last place anyone would think of as a modeling hotbed, but the Mid-Atlantic state has produced notable beauties such as Beth Ostrosky, Sharon Stone, Aimee Mullins, Ginny McQueen and Gia Carangi could Greensville native, Ashley Rhome be the next cutie from the Quaker State?
With a set of curves that’ll stop any man in his tracks and lips able to seduce from a mile away, Ashley has both a innocent beauty and a hidden seductive edge that is catching everyone’s attention. A recent contestant in the Miss Pennsylvania USA Pageant 2018, the 5’5 blonde-haired stunner has also done promo work for big names such as Nike, Foot Locker and most recently James Bond. With her eyes set on the biggest prize, the 5’5 beauty is current hoping to land a cover on Maxim as it’s next cover girl.
With looks that can kill, there is no reason why Ashley shouldn’t win. Outside of modeling, the 26-year-old is also an aspiring actress, writer, co-owner of a screen print shop as well as a MMA ring girl. Hard-working, blue-collar and sexy as well, there is just something about a Pennsylvania woman.
Consider Ashley Exhibit A.
Like all from PA, Ashley is a diehard sports fan, most notable football and loves her Steelers and Nittany Lions.
Below is my Q and A with Ms. Rhome as we talk modeling, why PA produces so many knockout women, her hopes and dreams of landing the Maxim cover, the untimely death of her late father, his influence on her, and why she keeps pushing on in his memory.
Who Is She?
Name: Ashley Rhome
Birthplace: Greenville, Pennsylvania
Notable Publications/Media: Miss Pennsylvania USA Pageant 2018, Bizzarro Boxing & MMA Promotions, Nike, Nike Foot Locker, James Bond Promo
Tell us all a little about you? I model, act, write, screenprint, co-own a business, and I’m a ring girl. I travel as much as I can and try to live to the fullest experiencing all walks of life. I’m big on science, video games, Lord of the Rings, and rescuing animals.
Define “Glamour Girl” what does it mean to you? A confident, influential, accomplished woman in the public eye that makes it look a lot easier than it is.
Congrats on being considered for Maxim Cover Girl, how excited are you? I’m super stoked to even be considered! Keep on voting!
As someone who lived in your state for 15 years, what is it about PA that breeds such stunningly gorgeous women? Good genes? Coincidence? Aliens? The world may never know.
Pittsburgh or Philly? The Burgh
Pitt or Penn State? Nittany Lions!
Flyers or Penguins?
Eagles or Steelers? Steelers
Thoughts on the rise in popularity of modeling on Instagram? Instagram has become a useful tool for promoting oneself or business and you potentially get opportunities from all over the world that before now, you might have never had the chance to get. If you’re attractive and have lots of followers why not use it to your advantage?
Pumpkin Spice, Salted Caramel or Peppermint Mocha? I guess I’m a basic white girl, because I love the pumpkin spice.
With fall coming up, what fashion and fitness tips and trends do you have for looking good and staying in shape? Make sure you exfoliate and have a good moisturizer. I enjoy jogging in the park through all of the pretty fallen leaves to stay in shape.
G-string, thong, frenchies or commando, which do you prefer? You can’t get your panties in a bunch if you don’t wear any!
What would you say is your best feature? Probably my lips
What makes you feel sexy? Going to the gym and pushing myself harder than I expected to, freshly shaved legs in silk sheets, having my makeup/hair professionally done.
What exudes sexiness? Confidence and a charismatic personality.
Best/worst pickup line you’ve heard? Let me check my Tinder….. okay nope, they’re all the worst. Haha
What attracts you most to a man? A nice smile and sense of humor. Whatever Chris Pratt is doing.
Condolences on losing your father recently, how have you gotten through your loss, and what has helped keep you going? Thank you. It’s been the hardest thing I’ve ever had to deal with but I manage to get through by honoring him everyday and incorporating his memory in to my daily life. I made a promise that all that I do, I do for him. I wouldn’t be where or who I am now without my dad.
What is THE one hot fashion item that you must have/or get this season? Leggings all day everyday.
Athleisure? Fashion or fitness fad? It’s definitely a bit of both. You can work out while being comfy and at the same time show off the body you’ve been working hard on.
Any plans for this coming fall? I’m planning the whole Ghost Adventures thing going to haunted houses, corn mazes, watching the classics (Beetlejuice, Ghost Busters, Hocus Pocus) and hopefully going to Maxim’s Halloween party.
What is one area that most people overlook—but should—pay attention to more in getting in shape? Nutrition. You have to be mindful of what and how much you’re consuming.
Fave music? Classic rock What advice would you give to women aspiring to get into modeling? Don’t waste time waiting for opportunities to come to you, make opportunities for yourself and then things will fall in to place. Also! Very importantly, do your research on potential agencies, agents, photographers, or anyone else in the industry, because not everyone is looking out for your best interest or helping furthering your career.
Happy Woman Crush Wednesday!
