We at Bucks Cabaret know one indisputable fact: Women are beautiful. Not just our exotic dancers; plenty of celebrities are famous for their stunning beauty. Did you know, though, that many of those same famous women – and even some male celebrities – were exotic dancers before rising to fame on the stage or screen? 

Lady, Lady

Lady Gaga was, before becoming monstrously huge musically, a struggling New York girl. “I made more money stripping than waitressing,” she told Watch What Happens Live

Celebrity Kendra Wilkinson, too, cashed in on the enriching life of an exotic dancer. Dental assistant by day, licensed to lose her lingerie at age 18, Kendra claims to US Magazine, “My first night there, I made $4,000 just by sitting with a guy. Because I was a new girl, and he just wanted to sit with me and get to know me. Four grand! The next day, I was like, ‘Um, I gotta quit dental assisting.’” We are eternally grateful to the guy with good taste who encouraged her to share her smile and curves with us all.

NeNe Leakes, lately of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” fame, said she had been an exotic dancer years before reality television stardom, using the professional name Silk and raking in $1,000 nightly at gentlemen’s clubs. 

Dozens of other Hollywood and New York celebrities also have performed as exotic dancers. Catherine Zeta-Jones did it to afford plastic surgery. Anna Nicole Smith worked her way from pole dancing to Playboy. Courtney Love funded her band, Hole, with money from exotic dancing. 

Men, Too

Channing Tatum, who played an exotic dancer in “Magic Mike,” was an exotic dancer in real life. You can see the video for yourself. His Florida outfit bears a striking similarity to the outfit he wore for his centerpiece performance in “Magic Mike.”

Anna Faris is married to another exotic dancer, film and TV star Chris Pratt, who admitted freely that “I was always a very much naked person. I loved to always get naked. I was very free, so I thought, ‘I may as well get paid.’” 

Bucks Cabaret

All these celebrities thrive on attention; they gained confidence by performing in front of live, appreciative audiences. The gorgeous performers at Bucks Cabaret share many attributes with them. Our strong, beautiful women are confident, skilled and absolutely smoldering. Come to Bucks Cabaret at either of our two locations, our Dallas gentlemen’s club or Fort Worth, for a glimpse of the rising stars.
