Vida Guerra (born March 19,

Guerra's first national exposure
came when she appeared in a lingerie spread for FHM in December 2002. The
magazine later reported that following its publication, almost one-third of
their mail was from readers demanding more photos of her. She was called back
for more photo shoots and became "FHM's Model of the Year" in 2004. Since
then, she has been featured in many magazines, including DUB, Smooth, Escape,
and Open Your Eyes, often as the cover girl.
Guerra has made multiple
appearances on several Spanish language television programs such as
entertainment gossip show El Gordo y la Flaca (The Scoop and The Skinny). She
has also become a staple in music videos, appearing in "Shake Ya Tailfeather"
(Nelly, P. Diddy and Murphy Lee, from the Bad Boys II soundtrack, 2003) and "The
New Workout Plan" (Kanye West, 2004), in "Obsession (No Es Amor)" (Frankie J
featuring Baby Bash, 2005) among others. In addition, Guerra has appeared in a
commercial for Burger King's TenderCrisp Bacon Cheddar Ranch, a couple of
sketches on Chappelle's Show (including "R. Kelly's '(I Wanna) Piss on You'
Music Video", which spoofed the R. Kelly sex tape), and the film National
Lampoon's Dorm Daze 2. She lent her voice to the video game Scarface: The World
In April 2005, Guerra's camera
phone was allegedly hacked. Dozens of photos, including nude pictures, were
widely disseminated on the Internet. Guerra said the nude images were of another
woman, and that they had been mixed with genuine, non-nude camera-phone images
of her to create the false appearance that she was the naked woman pictured.
However, the head of her record label maintained that the nude photos were of
Guerra and that she had deliberately leaked them as a publicity stunt. Guerra
was dropped by the label over this incident.
Guerra was voted Number 26 in
"F.H.M's Top 100 Sexiest Females" of 2005 and has twice been named the winner of
the magazine's "Best Butt Award". She has produced her own swimsuit calendars
(and accompanying "behind the scenes" DVDs) and a 2006 DVD titled Vida Guerra:
The July 2006 issue of Playboy
featured the first formal nude photos of Guerra. Part of her motivation for
posing for the magazine, she said, was the camera phone incident; she wanted
people to see what she really looked like naked.
The first song from Guerra's debut
album, You Got Me, was leaked to the Internet on November 2, 2006.
In a July 2008 interview on The
Jace Hall Show, she spoke about her show Livin' the Low Life, stating that "I
didn't like it [low rider cars] at first, I mean, they were cool, but now that I
did the first season I'm actually gonna get one."
Guerra is a vegetarian. Regarding
vegetarianism, she has stated "I feel really healthy, and it works on so many
different levels, including the condition of my skin".
