Kourtney is a world-class model, business owner, and major public personality ready to take the world by storm. Beautiful and motivated to achieve the highest degree of happiness and success, we sat down with the beautiful blonde model to find out how it all started and her journey to this point.
Kourtney, We’re happy to have you on the cover of Playboy! Can you give us a bit of a background on your career as a model and where it all started? Of course, it started when I was young! Growing up with three older sisters dressing me up as their own personal Barbie doll, my family learned that I was very photogenic at a very young age and that I loved to sing and dance as the family entertainment. As I got older, I combined playing sports as a tomboy and wearing makeup, and soon later found a love for online marketing. At the age of seventeen, I went to Image International Modeling school in Allentown, Pennsylvania, and then decided I wanted to pursue sports modeling and acting. I was then submitted to a contest and won and was named Phillies hottest blonde by WMMR, the #1 Rock station in Philadelphia and the rest you could say is history!
Your classic blonde bombshell look is iconic, and we absolutely love it, could you tell us what the inspiration behind that is? My mother is my first true inspiration. I have always admired her beauty and charm. If I am in any way iconic it is because of her belief in me and her letting me dye my hair at the age of 14. Disbelievers in my past have driven me to be as iconic as possible and studying past Blonde Icons has helped me find my own path. It is who I am!
How do you maintain your Bombshell Image? It takes a lot of work, I’ll be honest. I do take pride in being healthy and fit. It also takes a great team of people who are really good at what they specialize in. One big, huge shout-out, is to my doctor, Dr. Cuber. I got the pleasure of getting some beauty things done before my major shoots, at Athenix Body Sculpting Institute, and it helped me gain a lot of my confidence back. Being a mother myself, and losing my mother recently, it took a huge toll on my body. I’m thankful I got back on track with the help of amazing people around me. The sky is the limit!
Can you tell us a bit about your achievements in the entertainment and media industry? Gracing the cover of Playboy is one. I have always aspired to be on the cover of your magazine. I will never forget the day when my agency called me up and told me I had to be on set in less than 48 hours to be Jessica Simpson’s official stand-in for her Macy’s commercials! Another huge highlight of mine is a little nerdier, but it is my ability to own my own marketing company, KR Media, LLC. I help other women now achieve their dreams. Also, of course, was winning Philly’s hottest blonde, Flyer’s hottest sports babe and Philly’s hottest fan. Go Philly sports!
What does it mean for you to be seen as a strong, intelligent, ambitious woman? Working in my industry you need to have very tough skin. It is rare to find someone in my industry that does not embody one of these things. I strive for excellence, and it has taken me a very long time to learn who I truly am and to love the person I am. There are plenty of people who will try and deter you from believing in yourself. It has been my greatest dream to do what I love, and be able to touch, influence, and help as many people as I can. Being strong, ambitious, and intelligent are all things that I take great pride in. I have had a lot of people in my past tell me that I am not, so when it gets noticed it is very much appreciated. This industry is no easy path.
We love your bubbly and positive outlook on life, what is the secret behind that strong mindset? Being a blonde bombshell, people put very low expectations on what they think of me. Nothing gives me greater joy than proving them wrong with my bubbly personality. Positivity is power. I will always choose to smile, even if my days are hard.
What does freedom of self-expression mean to you? Without freedom we have nothing. I will fight for freedom with my self-expression. I will embody being a strong powerhouse of feminine energy.
3 things that you can’t go a day without. Checking in on the people I love, my phone, and of course coffee.
What are some of your favorite memories of all time with Playboy? Winning Playboy Golf. Going to over a dozen parties at the mansion, shooting with Steve Wayda, and of course meeting Heff and gracing the cover of Playboy and hopefully many more!

I have my first-ever NUDE edition I’m pretty excited about!
What is the fastest way to put a smile on your face? I like compliments, cash, and a great hair day!
What makes you feel the sexiest and empowered? I know most people would expect me to say lingerie or swimwear, but it is actually wearing nothing but a robe. I think Heff was onto something, I like to feel free and comfortable, and I just love wearing a good robe.
Talking men, does size matter to you? Absolutely, no one wants a small glass of wine.
What attracts you the most to a man? Attraction is a funny thing, you can go your whole life not knowing what you want and then all of a sudden you find it one day by looking into someone’s eyes.
Top 3 deal breakers? Terrible kisser, and being a negative person, and not supporting a woman’s dreams.
