Vanessa Rousso signs with GoDaddy.com to promote domain names
Professional poker player, Vanessa Rousso has been offered to become the newest Go Daddy girl and will be joining the most dominant domain name registrar in the world. She will share the role with IndyCar racing superstar, Danica Patrick in the spokesmodel role. Danica has been the Go Daddy Girl for many years and Vanessa will now join the promotion for the internet entity. Rousso was set to appear in the swimsuit edition of Sports Illustrated but was taken out mysteriously and the poker world suspected that it may have been that Vanessa's body didn't measure up to SI standards.  


Competing in what has previously been known as primarily a man's sport is a definite plus for the Spokesmodel role, according to Bob Parsons who is the founder and CEO of the internet giant, Go Daddy. He added that she is also very intelligent and aggressive, along with being extremely sexy and hot. These are just a few things that Vanessa and Danica have in common; attributes that are specifically what the owner of the company looks for in the role.  


Appearing in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition would have been another common bond between the two beautiful and successful women, however, the opportunity to pose for the magazine was pulled for Rousso at the last minute. Unknown reasons and speculation had brought rumors that the body of the poker pro had diminished her chances for the shoot. However, Danica Patrick remains a part of the swimsuit edition.  


Vanessa Rousso, known as LadyMaverick online, has accomplished many things from a degree in economics, attending law school, sponsorship from PokerStars and now she will be a Go Daddy Girl. Currently, she is filming a new commercial for the company in Las Vegas with Bob Parsons, Danica Patrick and Candice Michelle that is to be aired during the NBC National Heads-Up Poker Championship, among other high profile events.
