Welcome to the old, but new â€œ5 Questions With Busted Coverage.â€
Itâ€™s our feature where actual celebrities, members of the elite media, athletes, strippers, etc. chat with our gaggle of reporters. Yes, we do get the chance to rap with famous people and figure youâ€™d enjoy the questions we throw their way.
Busted Coverage â€œ5 Questionsâ€ Editor Joseph Student took time out of his busy schedule to file this report.
(Yes, we asked extra questions.)
Guys: be friends with Sasha Bonilova, Playboyâ€™s Playmate of the Month for May 2011. She rides motorcycles, follows MMA and she likes to ask provocative questions of her friends on Facebook, where she’d like you to friend her. (https://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/sashabonilova)
Oh and this: 36DD-27-36.
Now 23, Sasha moved to the United States from the western Ukraine when she was 17. In addition to zipping around on a crotch-rocket that is custom-painted yellow and blue (Ukrainian flag colors), Sasha studied interior design and speaks five languages, which were four more than we needed to ask the following questions.
Sasha, you have a month to revel in the honor of being named a Playmate. What’s it like, who have you met so far and what have you done since being named Miss May?
It’s an amazing, incredible feeling; a dream come true. I am still realizing it, and I am really just blown away by it all. I was in Vegas for the debut of the issue last week and had to do radio interviews. It was my first time interviewingâ€¦ I was super-nervous. The radio guys joked that they were taking my radio/interview virginity. (laughs). I was like ‘Yeah. I was about that nervous.’
You’re a bike lover/rider, but you have more curves than most tracks. Tell us about your bike. Is it difficult to stay on the bike when you are as busty as you are?
I put on a very tight leather jacket when I ride and try to keep them in close to my body. It does take balance to rideâ€¦I have a very masculine bike. I don’t know why I chose that bike (Yamaha sport bike), but I love it with all my heart. It’s my baby. I love to ride.
How is American sports culture different than that of Europe; which sports or teams do you follow (or play)?
I like mixed martial arts: MMA – both watching and the training. Things like jiujitsu and wrestling. I like wrestling. It’s not cool for girls to wrestle (in Europe) â€¦We love soccer, of course we call it football. Football and hockey are very big in the Ukraine. They are more traditional sports that are old and manly. Boys play them, not girls.Â Girls do figure skating and acrobatic gymnastics.
Professional athletes tend to gravitate to beautiful women, Playmates, etc. Have you been hit on by any of them or by anyone whose name we’d recognize?
I am a freshly-made Playmate, so I haven’t really been out to the Mansion other than to do my (Playmate) video, which premieres this Sunday on Playboy TV. I haven’t had a chance to get to any parties or meet anyone really famous yet.
I did meet Seth Riggs, who was a vocal coach for Julio Iglesias (and Michael and Janet Jackson, Prince and more). We talked about opera. I love opera! I was asking him about Andrea Bocelli, about his house. I wouldn’t stop asking questionsâ€¦. I am a horrible singer. I would embarrass myself if I tried to sing.
You have started asking questions of fans/friends on Facebook. Have you had to un-friend anyone yet?
Everyone’s been surprisingly polite. The answers (to her daily questions) were not what I expected to hear…. I am not as into Twitter. When it comes to social media, I am a one network girl.
You have a passion for interior design. What do you NOT like to see in a guy’s apartment, and what would get you inside?
â€¦Your home should show the type of person you are, so it’s up to the guys. While no girl is a fan of a big wall of sports posters, if it’s the guy’s personality then it is OK. It shouldn’t be like a college dorm room with dirty socks and dishes and sheets that haven’t been washed in weeks.
It can have a copy of this month’s Playboy in it though, right?
Yes. A framed copy. That gets the green light.
