Everyone who meets the enigmatically charming Leticia Cline falls in love with her, and we reckon that once you finish reading this interview, you’ll love her, too. After starting her career as an international model in the early ‘90s, Cline worked as an interviewer for Total Nonstop Action (TNA) Wrestling. She has since left the spotlight and now the 44-year-old resides in her childhood hometown of Cave City, Kentucky, where she opened a free community motorcycle garage, Smiley’s, named after her late father.
In the six years since she’s been back in Cave City, Cline has been constantly hustling, making incredibly positive impacts on the community. She even ran for mayor, though she didn’t win the election. It’s hard to know where to start an interview with a woman who has lived such an adventurous and full life, so we decided to use her Instagram biography as a prompt, where she describes herself as a “writer, motorcycle racer, heritage tourism preservationist, cancer survivor, retired politician, and proud Kentuckian.”
