When you speak to Bobbi Billard on the phone, you'd guess that she's the modest girl next door, not the platinum blonde bombshell with the 34DD-24-35. Luckily for us, she is the platinum blonde bombshell. And she’s coming to a neighborhood near you.

After skyrockting to the number 3 spot on MySpace’s Top 100, Bobbi is now a hot party commodity, serving as host of this year's Wet Grooves party when it hits Las Vegas on September 23rd at the infamous Hard Rock pool.

She’ll be joining Filo & Peri, Steve Smooth, JJ Flores, Beej and Mikie Smithers in making sure Vegas has the hottest, wettest, slipperiest pool party this side of the Playboy mansion. (Click here for more info and tickets.) Despite her busy work schedule, CP managed to track her down for some girl talk.

CP: Wet Grooves is one hot party. How'd you get this job?

Bobbi Billard: I think they were initially drawn to me because of my myspace profile--I have over 540,000 friends. (Editor's note: click here to see the MySpace page. It's insane.)

Excited?

BB: I’ve never been to a Wet Grooves party so I’m excited to see what it’s all about. I know that they do parties around the country, so obviously it’s a big deal. It sounds like a lot of fun.

What do you look forward to most?

BB: Hanging out with my friend Chera and meeting some of the people who I haven’t met yet from myspace. Sit back, getting a tan and having a drink doesn’t sound so bad!

Speaking of your myspace page, I noticed you made a special page for your pink dog Gucci. What’s up with that?

BB: He’s actually sitting on my lap right now. He’s trying to get in on the interview, too. Yeah, I’m trying to make him the most popular dog on myspace. I think he’s adorable and he’s definitely got a personality that would make a good doggy profile on myspace. He’s like my little mascot.

Your fans must really love you if they leave thousands of comments for your dog.

BB: They actually reminded me that it was my dog’s birthday yesterday. I got all of these doggy birthday comments. They all remembered and they all posted something for him. That’s just cool.

I noticed that you have a lot of female fans. Are you surprised?

BB: I never noticed that. I actually thought it was predominately male. I love to have female fans. I’ve always thought women didn’t like me.

They all like you enough to steal your pictures.

BB: I actually have a big problem with that. Of course imitation is flattery but I have had people that have impersonated me and they’ve actually received gifts from people. They’ve made dates off of match.com and stood people up. I would hate to have that guy not like me for something that’s not my fault. I’m perfectly capable of having people not like me on my own. I don’t need anyone else’s help.

Pictures are a big part of your career. Do you get excited over good pictures like us regular folk?

BB: I get so excited! Yesterday I put up six new pictures and I was working on them all day resizing them and putting my brand on them. I was all excited to put them up on myspace and see what the comments would be.

You started your myspace page a little late in the game yet you managed to acquire so many friends. Do you know magic?

BB: I was actually hurt when I set up my profile. I broke my neck with WWE and I was in a lot of pain. While I was waiting for my surgery, all I did was just sit on my computer and do that all day. That was my little distraction. I approved everyone. I’ll block them if they’re spamming me but for the most part I approve everyone.

Guys can be obnoxious at times. What’s the weirdest comment somebody has left you?

BB: An email I received a couple of years ago. I don’t know if this was real or if he was joking, but he was all about me with a horse bridal. He wanted me to take pictures like that. I don’t know if that was a really weird fetish or if he was just being a jerk.

Guys may be obnoxious but it’s the girls that try to be like you. How do you feel about the competition?

BB: I’ve never worried about competition because I think there’s only one me. As far as them looking up to me, I’m honored. Whenever any girl says something like that to me, I’m still so shocked. It still hasn’t sunk in. I’ve heard it a lot but for some reason I’m still like, “why me?”

Modesty is hot.

BB: I think I'll always be that way. I was teased when I was growing up so I think that’s what kept me humble. It made me a nicer person because I always wanted people to like me and I tried that much harder to make friends because I wasn’t popular. I’m glad I went through what I went through back in the day.

I read somewhere that your parents wanted you to model to help build your self esteem.

BB: They put me in modeling school to give me some self confidence on how I looked. Part of your perception of yourself is based upon the feedback you receive from others, and if all you ever hear is negative, you start to believe it.

Wait… people had negative comments? To you?

BB: Kids had me thinking I was ugly and I just heard it so much I began to think there was something wrong with me. Now I look back at pictures and I’m like, “What the hell is wrong with me?! I’m hot!”

And your page is so well written. How much of the writing do you do?

BB: Absolutely all of it. There was no ghost writer. So many people are advocating playing dumb. Like the whole Jessica Simpson chicken/tuna fiasco. I love Jessica Simpson and I’m not taking a shot at her but it seems that playing dumb is more in than being smart. To me, stupidity is a big turn off.

Yeah. Now let’s talk about the really important stuff. Do you come to New York often?

BB: I’ve been there twice and I would love to come back. Chera was actually talking to me about going back so hopefully we’ll do that.

Where did you party when you were here?

BB: You know, I don’t think I really knew where to go out! I’m not from there and I don’t know anyone out there.

We won’t hold that against you. Where do you like to go out in LA?

BB: It’s so weird but I never go out anymore. I’ve been hired to do all of these events so I save my energy for those.

Okay, so when you do head out, do you have an entourage?

BB: Yeah, I have a little entourage. I’m guilty. At night time, you have to bring your friends out because that’s when you have the most fun.
