Former Playboy playmate and ex-girlfriend of Hugh Hefner, Barbi Benton, is one of my favorite people. She's very odd. I like people who are naturally eccentric. Her Aspen, Colorado home is so interesting. It reminds me of something you'd find in another galaxy.  If memory serves (...recalling an old epsiode of The Girls Next Door), the interior is even more bizarre than the exterior.

Ironically enough, Barbi's husband, George Gradow, made his money developing trailer parks. The couple lovingly refer to their "Copper Palace" as the "double, double-wide". At just under 30,000 square feet and nestled on 40 acres of land, that's quite an understatement. I'd love to spend hours getting lost inside this place!

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States
I'm living life in beautiful Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I hold a journalism degree from West Virginia University. I have worked in television news, fashion marketing, PR, and cosmetic sales. My love for writing and sharing with the world my various passions is strong. One of my many ambitions is to be published and continue creating in the fields of digital and print media, literature and film. In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, going to concerts, reading, following Pittsburgh sports and traveling as often as possible. Some of my favorite things include beauty, style, architecture, books, tarot and astrology, thrifting and my shih-tzu, Ireland. I’m engaged to the love of my lifetimes and we look forward to starting our next chapter together. If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you!
