Internet Celebrity of the Month: Kindly Myers

You're getting two internet celebrities of the month for September. This is not just because I love you, but also to help Kindly get a push for the Playboy Miss Social competition (linked at the bottom). If you love America, you'll go vote for her after reading this article.

If you're a University of Kentucky sports fan, than you've probably spent a fair amount of time at Matt Jones' It's a great place to get lots of information on the Wildcats delivered in a completely biased yet self aware (and often hilarious) manner.

If you claim to hate the website, than you've probably spent even more time than the regular readers there whining about it in the comments sections of every post.

But one thing that can halt the verbal sparring that occasionally occurs over at KSR dead in it's tracks is the UK Fan of the Day picture. That goes double when the picture is of Kentucky superfan Kindly Myers.

Sorry Matt, but I totally don't care about the podcast right at this moment.

She's been featured a few times on the site, but that's not the only place Wildcat fans have seen her. She is also an ace bartender for Legends Corner in Nashville, which is one of the best places you can stop in to have a good time while visiting Tennessee's capital city.

And since Nashville often plays host to the SEC tournament, Kentucky bowl games (back during the Brooks years, at least), and Vanderbilt road trips, Kentucky fans often end up painting the entire town blue...which means that Kindly, who loves her Wildcats, is every UK fan's #1 bartender.

But Kindly's following extends well beyond a measure of local fame and a large Kentucky following. Aside from her very active Twitter and Instagram accounts (which are filled with the elations and laments of a typical die-hard UK fan), she has also been featured in, and various other magazine covers and photo shoots. 

Kindly's drop dead gorgeous looks combined with her distinctive 'Invictus' tattoo running down her right side give her quite a bit of allure, already. The fact that she loves the UK, however, makes this blonde bombshell every male Wildcat fan's dream girl.

She's also one of the coolest and most down to earth gals you could ever talk to, which is why she was happy to do an interview with

RBC: Have you always been a Kentucky fan?

Kindly: Yes I have.

RBC: What do you think about new head coach Mark Stoops and the direction of the football program?

Kindly: They are getting great recruits and I think Stoops will get them back into a bowl game (and to the top of the SEC, eventually).

RBC: Do you think Kentucky Basketball can make it back to the Final Four this year with so many true freshman on the roster?

Kindly: Are you kidding? That shouldn't even be a question. National champions! Probably a record draft class, too.

RBC: What got you into bar tending?

Kindly: When I moved to Nashville I started doing promotions for a bar. The bartenders seemed to have so much fun and I kept asking to learn. 

Finally, they put me behind the bar on a Saturday night to work/learn the ropes. It was stressful, but I picked it up pretty quickly and have been bar tending for about 7 years now. It's a great job. I make great money, get to have fun, and meet lots of new people.

RBC: What is your worst customer horror story?

Kindly: Every night there is at least one customer who is absolutely insane. I try to document them on my Twitter feed with #bartenderprobs

                                  As a former bar tender myself, this is one of my favorites

RBC: What was your time like during the four years you served in the Army National Guard (and have you ever had to use the skills you learned there to kick someones ass)?

Kindly: Basic training taught me a lot about myself. I learned that I am much stronger than I ever thought I was, both mentally and physically. I also got to shoot many different types of guns and rocket launchers. It was fun and I met some great people. 

I am also confident that I could kick someones ass in hand to hand combat if the situation arose.

RBC: What brought you from the Bluegrass State to Nashville?

Kindly: I grew up on the Ky/Tn border; I went to high school there in a very small town. After school, I moved to Nashville to get out of there and see what the city had to offer.

RBC: How often do you get to go back to Kentucky and see games in person?

Kindly: Not as often as I would like. But whenever I'm not working, I try to make it to a game (or at least watch the games at a Kentucky sports bar).

RBC: When did you start modeling?

Kindly: Modeling has always been a passion of mine. The last 2 years, however, have been very good to me. I've been published on the cover of Joker Magazine, a semi finalist in Maxim's Hometown Hottie competition, and I've been featured on and Busted Coverage.

RBC: What do you do to keep in such great shape (and if you say "genetics" I will throw my laptop across the room)?

Kindly: Sorry to say this, but genetics do have a lot to do with it...

My job also keeps me moving and running back and forth all night, so that helps.

RBC: You've captured the Big Blue Nation's collective heart, so clearly you have the ability to develop a following. Is modeling something that you would ever want to give up bar tending for and turn into a full time career?

Kindly: I would LOVE to model as a full time career, but if I did I know I would miss bar tending. I have had other jobs and I always come back to it.

RBC: What inspired the #sorrymyboobsarehuge hashtag you like to use?

Kindly: It all started as a joke. For example, if got something free or a discount on something I would say "sorry my boobs are huge." It's just amazing to me the things you can get away with if you have big boobs.

RBC: Does your boyfriend ever want to throttle all the people that oggle/profess their love to you, or has he gotten used to it?

Kindly: I don't think he will ever get used to people taking my picture or saying they love me, but I think he deals with it well. He trusts me and knows I'm not going anywhere.

RBC: Do you ever have marriage proposals from your customers at the bar?

Kindly: At least twice a week. No one has ever given me a ring, though.

RBC: Your Instagram feed is full of pictures and videos of you and your horses. How long have you been riding?

Kindly: I got a mini horse when I was 3 and I've been riding ever since.

RBC: Does your dog Little know that he's "Instagram famous"?

Kindly: He loves getting his picture taken. He also loves wearing clothes; he'll pretty much do anything for attention. 

But does he know he's famous? I think it's safe to say that he is pretty oblivious to that.

RBC: What is your favorite Kentucky sports memory?

Kindly: UK vs. Louisville in 2004, Patrick Sparks getting fouled with less than a second left and sinking all 3 free throws to win the game. Louisville doesn't exist!

RBC: Anything you'd like to say to your fans out there in the Big Blue Nation and beyond?

Kindly: Thank you all for supporting me I love all of my fans and followers! I couldn't do any of this with out you!!

Be sure to vote for Kindly in the Playboy Miss Social Competition. It's non nude, so your wife or girlfriend will only be moderately ticked if she sees you visiting the site.

Also be sure to follow Kindly on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.

I'm not nearly as pleasant to look at, but you can follow me on Twitter and Facebook, as well.
