Healthy living and a stringent exercise program.

Soft kisses and sexy cologne turns me on.

Black on black McLaren F1, it’s absolutely orgasmic.

What item of clothing or accessory makes you feel the sexiest?
Lace underwear, high heels and light, fresh smelling perfume.
Have you posed in the nude?
No, I have never done it since I want to be a role model for my children someday. I would probably do it for a high fashion shoot if it was done in a sophisticated and artistic way.
What do you most value in your friends?
I value traits like loyalty, dependability and sincerity. I don’t need tons of friends to validate who I am but I would love to keep the handful I have. They are truly my loyal and genuine friends whom I can depend on when I need them the most.
Who are your heroes in real life?
My mother has all the super powers I need. She has unconditional love and support. A real hero can save me and get me out of any trouble.
If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why?
If I could have a superpower, I would love to be able to fly and take a guest with me. I love to travel and that would save me lots of money for flights anywhere in the world.
Tell us about any upcoming projects of yours?
Watch Fox Sports Net every Sunday for World Poker Tour episodes, which I will be appearing on all season long. I’m also planning to get more involved with local charities and help out as many as possible. I believe that greatness is not what you have but it’s what you give. I would like to raise money and do fun events for charities to help families - especially kids in need. Keep checking my website for all the updates at www.ivyteves.com.
Do you have any shout outs?
I love my mom and my friends, even when I’m being a brat! I love you SC and thanks for being my biggest fan. Also, thank you to my fans that continuously support me. I appreciate all the love and the sweetest compliments you give which always make me smile. Much love to Performance Auto and Sound for the opportunity to be featured in this wonderful magazine. XOXO
