Did Holly Starr get fired by 38 The Spot? Is she pregnant? Did she sleep with Jason Grill?
The answer to all of the above questions is a resounding No.
As in, none of the above. Now let’s get down to the business at hand; finding out the latest on Kansas City’s missing-in-action, smoking hottest star. The grrrrl who ceded her post as spokesmodel for local television station 38 The Spot last summer to stay home with two-month old daughter Brinklee.
That’s right, Brinklee. That a family name?
"No, it’s just something I thought of," Starr says. "I couldn’t think of a name and I was researching names and I thought, I’ve always respected Christie Brinkley. So she’s not named after Christie Brinkley, but that’s where I got the name. And then I changed the spelling."
Starrkept her TV gig through the majority of her pregnancy, calling it quits last July as she morphed from the two year-old photo of herself in the red bikini shown here, to queen-sized mother-to-be.
"Thank goodness you didn’t say, king-sized, but I’ll be wearing that red bikini again very soon," Starr quips. "It’s still not too cold out and the weight has been falling off of me – I’ve been fortunate in that."
As for the bikini pic, "That was two summers ago," Starr says. "I actually wore that on my honeymoon."
Starr’s dialed back her work schedto be home with her daughter like her mom was with her.
"I’ve put my career on the back burner," she says. "I’m working on raising Brinklee and focusing on my marraige. However, I am still hosting Las Vegas TV, but I can take Brinklee with me on the set there. I haven’t gone back yet, but I’m going to go after the first of the year. It was really difficult to leave 38 The Spot, but it basically came down to it taking too much time and I want to be with Brinklee as much as possible. I want to be there for her first step and her first words."
Does Starr ever miss the glam and glitz of the singles life and nightlife scene she lorded over for so long?
"Nooooooo," she says emphatically. "Oh my gosh, no. My husband John is my best friend and my soulmate and I knew it from the very first night we met."
As for being treated like a local celebrity, "You know, things really didn’t change for me after I got married," Starr says. "I had met so many people that I still received all those perks."
How about the endless parade of local dudes – do they still hit on Starr?
"Sure, they do," she says. "I guess rings aren’t that important – I don’t know – and like on Facebook. Even though John is in my Facebook picture I still get private messages from guys who apparently don’t know or don’t care that I’m married and have a baby. But I let them know.
"And I’m still doing a lot of charity work for Big Brothers & Big Sisters. I emcee all of their events and I’m emceeing the Sexy Singles next month at Harrah’s Voodoo Lounge on Friday December 9th."
As for what the future holds careerwise, "I’ve recently been presented with some offers that are quite enticing," Starr says. "And they would better fit my schedule as a new mom. So when the time is right, I can see myself getting back out."
Maybe for another spokesmodel gig?
"That’s part of the offers I’ve been approached with and I’m still modeling," Starr says. "Brinklee and I are in Her Life Magazine in the November issue. We did a jewelry ad."
Two months old and the kid’s already wearing baby jewelry?
"I was the one wearing the jewelry," Starr laughs. "It’s a new baby line. You can get your baby’s fingerprint on a necklace and their toeprint on a bracelet."
Starr’s pet peeve; that so many locals remain clueless about her being married and with child.
"I went to a Halloween party and showed up with Brinklee and some people went, ‘I didn’t know you were pregnant.’ And I go, ‘I’m not.’ "
