Tila Tequila


Tila Tequila was born on October 24, 1981 in Singapore. The American social media personality and TV star is also known as Tila Nguyen and Miss Tila. She was first recognized for being active on social media sites. As soon as she became the most famous person on Myspace, she was offered her own reality TV show entitled A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila (2007). The bisexual-themed dating series lasted for a couple of seasons and was rated as MTV’s second highest series premiere during the year.

Tequila was raised in Houston, Texas. In 2001, she moved to Los Angeles to pursue her modeling career, which was the right decision because she got featured in several men’s magazines like Maxim, Stuff and Playboy. Afterwards, she made her first ever reality TV debut on VH1’s Surviving Nugent (2003).

This star doesn’t only showcase her talents on TV and magazines, she was also an author and a recording artist. She was the lead singer of the bands Jealousy and Beyond Betty, before she started a solo career. By 2007, she debuted her single “I Love U” that received mixed reviews. The song did have generous online sales, but it wasn’t enough to reach any charts. A year after, she published a book entitled “Hooking Up with Tila Tequila: A Guide to Love, Fame, Happiness, Success, and Being the Life of the Party.”
