Kentucky Proud

It was an honor modeling for diet Ale-8-One for many reasons.  For one, I got to shoot for a Kentucky-made soda that I love in the place that I love — Kentucky!  I got to work with local people and the very amazing producer and director Jason Epperson!  Jason is a fellow Kentuckian who also had success on reality TV.  He competed on a show called “On the Lot” with Steven Spielberg.

My favorite jobs are the ones that have a special place in my heart, and this one really hit home.  I’m also excited because this commercial will be airing throughout the Kentucky Derby weekend, another classic event that contributes to my home-state pride.

I am very proud to represent everything Kentucky!

    I use one studio for all my modeling and I know the photographers are honest and background checked. Angel Girl Studios has a stellar reputation. They do webcam jobs as well, non-nude! They are at .

    Hi Laura — my Gore family lived in and came from Carlisle, Kentucky (I don’t think there are any cousins left there now). Some years ago we visited my dad’s aunt, and took our then-toddler sons to the homestead outside Carlisle and took photos on the stairs where my great-uncle Earl slid down as a little boy. Such a special memory! Kentucky is so beautiful. One of the things my great-aunt made a particular point of doing while we were there was introducing us to Ale-8-One! We loved it and bought some cartons to take back home with us. I haven’t thought of this soda for years. So it was a kick for me to see your ad this week, after I’d been watching your ANTM shows in reruns. You are such a lovely girl with such a lovely spirit.
    Best wishes always to you and your family,
