Interview with Tonya
by The Cabana Boy

CB:  Tonya, you seem to be working non-stop.  What interested you in doing the calendar project?

Tonya:  I thought it would be hysterical to put me in the same room with Robin, Katie and every guy I have ever hooked up with on reality TV.  Throw my current boyfriend into the mix to witness this fiasco and top it off with Beth being one of the producers.  I knew this was going to be a damn good shoot.

CB: Were they any memorable moments from the calendar shoot?

Tonya:  Hands down it was when Robin walked on set hand in hand with
Mark who proceeded to hug me right in front of Robin.  Robin's eyes
seemed to burn like fire and I knew one of us was going to hit the other by the end of the shoot. 

CB:  What have you been working on recently?  Where can people see you?

Tonya:  Just wrapped my first film called "The Scorned."  It is a horror film that premiers September 25th.  In the mean time you can check out 8 episodes of the behind the scenes on E! "Kill Reality" premiering July 25th.  If you thought that I was crazy in the Inferno 2 you should really check this out!!!  It was a wild ride (to say the least) and definitely entertaining.

CB:  Reality editors and producers are known for creating drama for their own purposes.   Do you think you have been a victim of editing in the past?

Tonya: No, not at all.  A producer recently told me that he can't edit me at all because I am consistently the wild and unpredictable Tonya you see on TV and that's the way he wants it to be.

CB:  Are there any misimpressions of you that you would like to correct?

Tonya:  My ass is real 'Dipshits'!!!  I have BOOB implants, God gave me the ass!

CB:  Are you single and what do you look for in a relationship?

Tonya:  No, not single.  I recently got very serious with an incredible man who allows me to be whatever I want to be on TV.  He understands that I live two lives, one on TV and one very private one off camera.  Don't ask for the details, you're never going to get them...  ha ha

CB: Damn... well. OK.   Tell us some deep, dark secret about “Tonya” that we are dying to know,
not that we need more than to look at your calendar picture to just make some up.

Tonya:  Well, if you look close you might catch a little nipple action in one of my shots.  I caught it;  lets see if you can?  As far as a deep dark secret goes, keep your eyes on the TV I think I might reveal enough on the next show to answer this question and E! can do a better job editing this secret then I can describing it to you...  

After all, it's reality TV, isn't it???

CB:  Well, you've got me there.  Thanks,Tonya, and good luck with the BF thing...
