Tila Tequila - Sexy Poker Player

Nguyen was born in Singapore to French Vietnamese parents, where her family emigrated from Vietnam after the Vietnam War. When she was one year old, she and her family lived in a neighborhood in Houston until they were admitted to a gated community run by a strict Buddhist temple. The family left the community when Nguyen was eight.

While in middle school, Nguyen became a tomboy and was eventually sent to a boarding school for six months for her combative behavior before transferring to another school. While in high school, she used her sister's identification card to enter nightclubs, where she began taking drugs and joined a gang. In an interview with Import Tuner, Nguyen said she had been searching for a sense of identity: "I was really confused then, at first I thought I was black, then I thought I was Hispanic and joined a cholo gang". Later, friends outside the gang briefly helped turn her life around. However, her past caught up with her, and she fled to Queens, New York at the age of 16.

Tila Tequila

The poker player known as Tila Tequila was born Thien Thanh Thi Nguyen on October 24th, 1981. She initially gained attention by posing for Playboy and later exploded onto the scene through her sexy MySpace page (over one million friends). She has since leveraged her popularity into a singing, modeling and acting career. Recently, Tila Tequila has also become involved with online poker and online casinos.

While Tila was born in Singapore, her family had originally migrated there from Vietnam following the Vietnam War. When she was only one year old, the family moved again - this time to a Buddhist community in the Houston suburb of Alief. The Nguyen family would leave the community when Tila was eight, moving elsewhere in the Houston area.

Heather Graham - Sexy Poker Player

Heather Graham was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to a family of Irish descent. Her family relocated repeatedly until settling down in Agoura Hills, California when she was nine years old. The eldest of two children, her younger sister, Aimee Graham, is also an actress and writer. Their mother, Joan, is a teacher and noted author of children's books, and father, James Graham, a retired FBI agent. The girls were raised with family values that followed a strict traditional Catholic upbringing. Graham graduated from Agoura High School in California in 1988. In 1986, she appeared on a special "Teen Week" episode of the NBC-TV game show Scrabble.

She was introduced to acting during the school production of Wizard of Oz. Then while still in school she appeared in numerous television commercials, the sitcom Growing Pains and several television movies. She debuted in the 1988 film License to Drive, which was a teen comedy starring Corey Haim and Corey Feldman. Her strict parents forbade her to appear in the 1989 black comedy Heathers, which had an expletive-rich script.

After high school, Graham enrolled in extension classes of the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) and studied English for two years. There she met actor James Woods. They became romantically involved during the time she was cast in the movie Diggstown, where he had landed the starring role. After two years there, Graham withdrew from school at UCLA to pursue acting full time, over her parents' objections. She then moved to Hollywood, where she worked different jobs while continuing to establish herself as an actress.

Her first film appearance was an uncredited cameo in Mrs. Soffel. After turning down the female lead role in Dirty Dancing, her second film appearance was in the television film Student Exchange. Graham was cast in a number of parts as a supporting actress including the part of Nadine in the 1989 film Drugstore Cowboy. In 1991, she appeared in the TV series Twin Peaks as Annie Blackburn, Dale Cooper's second-season love interest. Many became familiar with her for these two roles. Her breakthrough role proved to be that of 1970s porn starlet "Roller Girl" in 1997's Boogie Nights, in which she appeared in scenes with frontal nudity and received several award nominations. Her first starring role was in 1999 as Felicity Shagwell in Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me. She also appeared in the music video for Lenny Kravitz's cover of "American Woman" by The Guess Who.

I'm a demon poker player. For years I've had friends over to my house for poker sessions. Or I'll go to poker clubs, Contactmusic quoted her as saying.

I hardly ever lose money. I don't play for huge stakes - I'm too cautious for that. But I've often won hundreds of dollars. I always play sober. My weakness is a tendency to get too competitive, which means I lose my edge. I'm waiting to be invited to the tournaments that Brad Pitt organises. But I'd need to be careful. Those guys play for huge stakes. I'd be afraid of running a losing streak and ending up writing out huge IOUs," she added.

Jayde Nicole - Sexy Poker Player

Jayde Nicole began modeling for catalogs and fashion shows at the age of six. The following year, Nicole's family moved from Scarborough to Port Perry. When she turned 11, she stopped modeling for a time, as she was finding herself becoming "too mature to be doing kid's jobs."
When she was 15, a scout from a Toronto modeling agency spotted her outside the Air Canada Centre as she was leaving a concert and offered her an opportunity to return to modeling. Since then, Nicole has appeared in numerous publications and fashion shows. She created and owns her own agency, "A Touch of Class", based in Port Perry.

Nicole studied hotel management at George Brown College in Toronto, but dropped out to pursue a modeling career.

It all started when Jayde Nicole met the “All In Magazine” publisher, Kasey Thompson, and Nicole agreed to do the “All In Magazine Project.” She started receiving personal training from one different professional poker player every month. During her first month she was trained by Jamie Gold, then it was Bluff Magazine’s Player of the Year David Chicotsky. The next one on the list is no other than the great Daniel Negreanu.

Her progress and results are being recorded on the “All In Magazine” pages and you can currently follow it. Jayde Nicole is a new poker player but we already saw her take a seat at the PokerStars “Million Dollar Challenge” alongside Daniel Negreanu and other pros. The sexy poker player said that it was hard to get the other players to take her seriously.

You can watch all of the action she got involved in during the TV broadcast of the PokerStars “Million Dollar Challenge.” She commented at an interview that she finds it more fun to flop top pair than to pose topless.

Now for the future you can expect to find her playing online at PokerStars, as she said she will be playing around 3 tournaments every week and she will also attend the Caribbean Challenge in the Bahamas in January 2010.

Nicky Hilton - Sexy Poker Player

First she’s hanging out at the IHOP at 5am and making citizen arrests and now she’s getting her poker face on at The 7th Annual World Poker Tour Invitational. In the game of poker you’re going to need more than a pretty face to take down the big pots. Well, Nicky has both the beauty and the brains for poker. At the Nicky Hilton & Kevin Connolly New Year's Eve Poker Tournament at Pure Nightclub at Caesars Palace. Nicky Hilton played for more than two hours outlasting many of the pros that started the contest.

Nicky Hilton and sister Paris naturally found their way into New York's inner social circle. Magazines such as FHM, Vanity Fair and Vogue noticed the clout the heiresses had and featured photo shoots and interviews of the girls. Socialite extraordinaire, Nicky is flooded in publicity and continues to attend big-time events around the world.

Nicky Hilton

Born into a life of luxury, Nicky Hilton grew up in the rich Waldorf-Astoria with parents Kathy and Rick, and older sister Paris Hilton. Both girls stand to inherit the hundreds of millions of dollars made by great-grandfather Conrad Hilton, who founded the famous Hilton hotels chain. Nicky, like her sister, recognized the need to establish a name for herself that would get away from the "hotel heiress" label.
