Playboy's Gia Genevieve on Landing the Cover and Meeting Hugh Hefner

If you don't know Gia Genevieve by name, you might know her as the blonde bombshell staring back at you from the cover of Playboy magazine's March issue.

In either case, we're guessing you're going to be seeing a lot more of Genevieve in the near future. As a matter of fact, Hugh Hefner himself said as much when Genevieve met him at the Playboy mansion, as she tells us in our exclusive interview.

"He was lovely," she remembers. "He said something to me that I'll never forget, because I had just thanked him, and I was like, 'Thank you so much for making my dreams come true!' And he said, 'It's only the beginning.'"
