Richelle Ryan Takes 2nd Runner-Up in Dancer Championships

NEW YORK Richelle Ryan was named second runner-up in the Exotic Dancer National Championships, Masters category.

"None of this would have been possible for me without the help and guidance of my best friend and fellow feature entertainer Rachelle Laree," she said.

"Words cannot describe how amazing she is and everything she has helped me with. I did a 'Little Red Riding Hood' show where I was attacked by the Big Bad Wolf and bitten, then I turned into She Wolf. My grand finale was a milk show on a bed. It was super cute and girlie, which totally fits my personality! I couldn't have done any of it without Rachelle Laree."

Christina Aguchi won in the Masters overall, andLisa Licious won first runner up. In the Newcomers Division the overall winner was Lacey Rain, first runner up was Natasha Vega, and second runner up was Mia Moore.

Ryan is also nominated for Club Favorite this year at the Exotic Dancer Awards Show.

"I was so excited when I found out I was nominated for Club Favorite," Ryan said. "I'm very honored to be nominated among an amazing list of elite talent in this industry! My fans mean the world to me and if it wasn't for them I wouldn't be doing this. I appreciate all the support they show me. This is going to be an amazing year and I don't plan on slowing down anytime soon."

Ryan will be featuring at Columbus Gold next weekend, June 21-23.
