Before Leola Bell posed for Playboy, she used to work for Marriot. Before that she was a waitress.
Leola Bell landed the Playboy gig because she used to do Playboy Golf and won a free trip to the Mansion, and later a casting call for a Playmate shoot. And while she’s proud to be one of the few African-Americans to pose, she said, “I’m actually more proud to be one of the older girls. I’m 27. You don’t have to be 18 to pose for the magazine.”
As to getting nude, she wasn’t “accustomed to it, but I always said that if I was going to pose nude, it was going to be for Playboy.”
Leola Bell thinks her best feature is her eyes, “but people never see them because they are always staring at my breasts.” She has three tattoos: a cat on her lower back, her brother’s name on her ankle, and an E on the back of her neck.

The sexiest man ever is “any man who can make me laugh. That is the key to my heart.” Her best trait is her ability to talk to anyone, anywhere at any time. Her worst, however, is her impatience. She thinks a man should groom his private parts as much as possible. “Nothing worse than smells and tangles down there.” And when in the bedroom, she wants men to “take charge, but give me room to do my thing as well.”
Leola Bell said the key to her heart is laughter, respect and good sex. But a man will turn her off if “he’s all about sex, or wrapped up in himself and his possessions.” And sex overall? “It’s amazing. Do it every day. Even if you’re just doing it with yourself.”
Her philosophy of life is “be true to yourself, march to the best of your own drum and don’t be afraid of what other people think. As long as you’re not hurting anyone, do what you want!”
A warning, though. She said not to “talk bad about my friends, my family or my cat. I will walk away so fast, and never look back” (theplayasmansion.info).
Leola Bell lives in Miami Beach, Florida.
