She fell in love with dance when she was just three years old and pursued her passion, eventually landing a job as a cheerleader for the Baltimore Ravens football team. She also dabbled in acting, booking commercials before joining the WWE in and eventually getting her big break as a contestant on Dancing With the Stars' second season.
But since her sudden rise to fame back in aided by her two-year relationship with A-lister George Clooney , Keibler has gone off the radar. Here are the real reasons why we don't hear from the retired wrestler anymore.
She went on to build an "in-ring career [that] spans a scattered half-decade with memorable matches against Trish Stratus, Victoria, and Molly Holly. I was on the road four days a week, then I would come home, that day I would go to my acting classes," she revealed.
But thanks to her solid moves and strong partnership with pro Tony Dovolani, she quickly became a fan favorite and the season's frontrunner. Come finale night, Keibler was left to face off against 98 Degrees singer Drew Lachey and retired NFL player Jerry Rice for the mirror ball trophy and many were sure that she would take it home. Once all the votes were tallied, Keibler shockingly finished in third place with Lachey taking home top honors and Rice coming in second.
A shocking blow made even worse by just how much hard work the star had put into preparing for the show. She was snubbed by Hollywood royalty Getty Images It was when Us Weekly reported that Stacy Keibler who had been dating superstar actor George Clooney for just six months at the time had allegedly suffered quite the embarrassing encounter with Hollywood royalty.
Citing anonymous sources, Us Weekly wrote that "Angelina refused to acknowledge that Stacy was even on the plane. Angelina went out of her way to ignore her, from takeoff to landing.
She would not even look Stacy's way. She was not having it! Talk about an embarrassing encounter that would make anyone retreat from the limelight. She had a very public split from George Clooney Getty Images After two very public years of dating, Stacy Keibler and George Clooney had an equally public split , which made the former wrestler the subject of numerous headlines. Meanwhile, The Baltimore Sun pointed out that the split came at "a time a skeptic might call convenient, in terms of publicity.
She has a episode series, Supermarket Superstar, set to debut. Speaking with Extra's Terri Seymour , Keibler said "there's nothing really dramatic that happened, so it's all good. I almost wish I had a story because it would almost make it more easier. But, to me, it's not really that big of a deal.
It's kind of life, and new beginnings. So sorry, so sorry, but I'm just not going to talk about my personal life. She went on to find true love and settled down Getty Images Following her ultra public split from Clooney, Stacy Keibler started a more low-key romance with Jared Pobre. In September , Keibler hinted at the seriousness of her new relationship when she posted a snap from Paris , writing "Love being in the city of love!
Come , the couple tied the knot in a secret beach ceremony in Mexico. It means putting all your faith and trust into a person that you can't help but believe is your soulmate.
Someone who has all of your best interests at heart; someone handpicked for you, to help you grow and be the best person that you can be. Jared is all of this for me. She had her first baby and became a devoted mom Instagram via stacykeibler Stacy Keibler and Jared Pobre welcomed their first child , a baby girl named Ava Grace Pobre, into the world in and Keibler immediately embraced her newfound role as a mother.
Being a full-time mom means more to me than anything in the world right now. Refusing all medication, Keibler made it through 19 hours of labor during which time she "kept saying, like, 'Ava's a warrior. And now that it's all happened, "Ava has graced us with such joy, such light and such love—we never saw it coming.
She is our special little lady, and I couldn't be more thankful for how she has opened my heart. Although the young mama stayed active and stuck to a healthy diet during her entire pregnancy, the real work began after Ava Grace was born. After just four weeks, she "started walking and working with my trainer Nonna Gleyzer to properly reattach my ab muscles. Breastfeeding also helped me take off the baby weight, because it burns about to calories per day. In fact, my abs are in better shape now than before I got pregnant!
She launched a lifestyle website, then let it go Getty Images In , Stacy Keibler jumped on the celebrity blog trend popularized by Gwyneth Paltrow's Goop and launched her very own lifestyle website , but embarrassingly had to pull the plug on the project. A browse through the WWE star's blog reveals a collection of posts about healthy living and motherhood with minimal comments and interactions from readers, which likely played a big role in the blog's end.
Taking to her website one last time, Keibler made the announcement , blaming a hectic schedule for the blog's demise. And for me, this is one of those times. I hear that little voice, so I'm going to slow down until I can catch up. She abruptly disappeared from all social media platforms Getty Images Like most celebrities, Stacy Keibler actively used Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter to connect with her fans, posting close to snaps on Insta and over 4, tweets before suddenly abandoning all three social media platforms without warning.
Her last post on Facebook was made on January 26, , although she did briefly return to the site in March to share a random update, encouraging her K fans to "turn off your lights tonight at 8: That same status update was posted to her Twitter account for her K followers to see. Jared Pobre, who manages the luxury rental company that leased the property, says Newton lived there for 61 days and broke all the rules laid out in his rental agreement, namely not smoking indoors, not hosting parties, and not having more than eight guests at once.
Getty Images Stacy Keibler has made it clear that she has no plans to revisit her wrestling career and being a lifestyle blogger didn't work out as planned.
What's more, her foray into acting only resulted in small cameos including on George Lopez, Men at Work, and How I Met Your Mother and by , her small screen pursuits had come to a full halt. Given that she's now a devoted mother and wife, Keibler's future likely holds even more family time.
