Rachel used her dancing skills again to choreograph a sexy cheer routine for the "Back in the Mud" video for Bubba Sparxxx. it was no surprise when "The Pussycat Dolls" featured Rachel on a seven month run as their burlesque starlet.

There, Rachel caught the eye of famed photographer Ellen Von Unwerth, who was so taken with Rachel that she was inspired to shoot a lingerie book. Since then Rachel has again and again graced the pages of Maxim, Stuff, Italian Vogue, FHM and others in both the U.S. and overseas making her an international sensation.
