Intro:


Barbara Jean Blank was born in Jacksonville, Florida. Her birth date is either December 1, 1986 or January 15, 1987. Before entering the world of wrestling, she was a bikini model. As Barbie Blank, she modeled for Hawaiian Tropic and Venus Swimwear. Based upon her modeling, she was granted an interview with the WWE and in 2006 went to work for their minor-league affiliate, Ohio Valley Wrestling.

Kelly Kelly:


A month later, she appeared on the first episode of ECW on Sci-Fi as an exhibitionist known as Kelly Kelly. For a few months, she had a weekly striptease segment entitled Kelly's Expose that always ended when her jealous boyfriend, Mike Knox, stopped her from finishing her dance. Their relationship quickly soured when Kelly developed a crush on CM Punk.

Extreme Expose:


At the beginning of 2007, her dance segment was relaunched as Extreme Expose. This time, it was a dance troupe that also featured Layla and Brooke. That summer, it was revealed that their contract was controlled by the Miz. In the fall, she was fired from the group for dating Balls Mahoney. Shortly after this happened, Brooke left the WWE. Kelly spent the rest of the year feuding with Layla.

Switching Brands:


Kelly Kelly joined the RAW roster during the 2008 WWE draft. She stayed on the brand for two years before being drafted to SmackDown. In 2011, she was drafted back to RAW. A few months after the draft, Kelly Kelly won the Divas Championship from Brie Bella.

Feud With Beth Phoenix:


Kelly's most persistent challenger for the title was Beth Phoenix. After defeating her at SummerSlam and Night of Champions, Kelly finally lost the title to her at Hell in a Cell. The feud culminated at WrestleMania XXVIII when Kelly Kelly teamed up with television star Maria Menounos to defeated Beth Phoenix and Eve in a tag team match. A few months later, Kelly requested some time off from the company. She briefly returned to the company but in September she came to terms with the WWE to be released from her contract.
