MediaWorks' Julie Christie might want Dom Bowden to ask her former reality star, Vicky-Lee McIntyre, to sign up for the next Dancing with the Stars NZ when he is back in Los Angeles. The former star of Miss Popularity and Celebrity Treasure Island - Couples at War is back making a splash in the international glamour-modelling world.

McIntyre, who now goes by the name of Vicky-Lee Valentino, graces the cover of the latest edition of Playboy South Africa.

Before her starring role in the magazine, she had partied with Playboy founder Hugh Hefner.

"I was asked by Hef to be body painted for his personal New Year's Eve party at the start of the year," she told Spy. "He is a lovely man."

Valentino now mainly splits her time between Los Angeles and the Gold Coast. She also spent time in the UK earlier this year taking part in the London Gumball Rally in a black convertible Rolls Royce.

Valentino's partner on Celebrity Treasure Island - Couples at War was her then boyfriend musician Scotty Rocker. She still has a passion for musicians, telling Spy she had dated Alice Cooper drummer Glen Sobel. She is now single but musicians are part of the cool crew she hangs out with in Los Angeles.
