Patrice Hollis is Playboy’s Miss September 2007. She’s an angel from Sin City—Las Vegas, Nevada—with a God-given DDD bust. Patrice spent her early 20s working with at-risk kids for a local nonprofit organization, and she did a little modeling on the side.
“I had just started at a new modeling agency,” she said, “and a photographer asked me if I would be interested in Playboy. He submitted my pictures, and a few weeks later I was called in for a test shoot.” Holly Madison handled the creative direction on her pictorial.
In addition to her Playboy appearance, Patrice has worked as a promotional model for Apple Bottoms and has appeared in music videos for Nelly, Ginuwine, 50 Cent, Brian McKnight, Redman, and Mary J. Blige. She was featured on The Girls Next Door, Kendra, and Playboy’s Beach House and was a contestant on Jerry Springer’s Baggage. She plays Madison in the 2014 movie Dirty Dealing 3D, a heist set in Vegas.
Patrice isn’t just an entertainer. She’s an entrepreneur with a clothing line and storefront. Her number-one goal for the future is to start her own nonprofit organization for kids. Another ambition is to open an animal shelter.
“I’m not waiting for some NBA player to sweep me off my feet,” she told Playboy. “I’m an educated woman, and I want to earn my living. Playboy was a big step for me, and I count my blessings every day.”
