Erica Ellyson jokes that no one is her hometown of Hurley, Miss., would have ever imagined her gravitating toward a career in adult entertainment.
“Everyone that knew me growing up would say I was least likely to pose nude or do any of this stuff,” says the 2008 Penthouse Pet of the Year. “I was a Beta Club member, graduated with the highest honors and was a really good softball player. I was a natural athlete who was into sports and school.”
Ellyson submitted her pictures on a rebellious whim in 2006 while living in North Carolina, and went on to land three Penthouse covers, the first of which was in January 2007 as Pet of the Month.
Her notoriety also helped earn her a spot on the NBC reality show Momma’s Boys that aired in December ’08 and January ’09.
“Everything just kind of happened. Everything in my opinion has just gotten better—from Penthouse to the television show, it has made me a better, more well-rounded person.”
Now Ellyson is showing her fans more of her personality on her new, improved website (EricaEllyson.com) as she embarks on a new phase.
“I enjoy it, for the time being, and I never regret anything that I’ve ever done.”
