Stacy Keibler on Dealing With the Paparazzi and Staying on the Best Dressed Lists

PARADE Published: November 7, 2012
It's hard to remember that Stacy Kiebler got her start as a professional wrestler with the WWE. Since leaving the sport in 2006, she has become an accomplished model, competed on Dancing With the Stars (finishing third on season two), tried her hand at acting on both TV and film, and, most notably, began dating one of Hollywood's most sought-after bachelors: George Clooney.

Even so, Keibler recently told E! News that marriage and kids aren't on her mind yet; instead, she's doubling down on her career. She recently snagged the role of host of Lifetime's upcoming reality show, Supermarket Superheroes, a competition for aspiring food product inventors. She's also partnering with Valspar paints to promote their Love Your Color Guarantee Project benefitting Habitat for Humanity.

Keibler has even volunteered through the charity building homes for families in need. "I got in there with my hard hat and my nail gun and was totally in the trenches," she says, "To see the pride on their faces to know that they were going to have a place to call their own was just so rewarding to me," she says.

The star, 33, talked to about how she handles stardom, her strategy for nailing red carpet fashion, and how she likes spending her free time—when she can get it.

On getting gorgeous for the red carpet.
"For me, it's always about finding that dress that I feel really comfortable in, because I think when you feel comfortable in your own skin, then you exude a certain kind of confidence."

On how she spends free time at home.
