Born in the Dominican Republic, Rosa Acosta is a model, actress, socialite, budding fitness guru, and former ballet dancer who came onto many people’s radar via the reality series “Khloe & Lamar.” The 5-foot, 5-inch beauty made waves as an “old friend” of Rob Kardashian—brother of star Kim Kardashian—and when news broke she was pregnant, viewers assumed Rob was the father. Rosa later confirmed Rob was, indeed, the daddy, though sadly, this revelation came after she’d suffered a miscarriage. “I’m glad he was there for me as a friend and ready to step up as a dad,” Acosta said of Kardashian, according to Babyrazzi.com. And she doesn’t just snuggle up to dudes. In 2011, Acosta set the Internet ablaze by kissing fellow hottie Amber Rose.
Acosta has appeared in such magazines as King, Smooth, and XXL and turned heads in music videos by such popular hip-hop artists as P. Diddy, Jamie Fox, and 50 Cent. In 2012, XXL called her the “Hottest of Eye Candy of All Time,” and thanks to her “Body by Rosa Acosta” workout DVD, she may help other ladies achieve similarly bodacious figures. Rosa has proved her acting chops on “Los Blancos,” a Hot 97 online video series she’s compared to “The Sopranos,” and in November 2012, she’ll play a “sexy troublemaker,” according to EbenGregory.com, in the Fuse TV series “The Hustle.”

Before coming to America, Rosa Acosta was a member of the Dominican Republic’s national ballet team. She began dancing at the age of 4, and given her natural talent for classical dance, she soon became a standout student at the Centro de la Cultura in Santiago. After progressing to the Instituto de Cultura y Arte (ICA) and Ballet School of Norma Garcia, Acosta joined the national team. In 2002, she was the youngest soloist on the squad, and she was twice nominated by the Secretaria de Estado de la Juventud for her achievement in Cultural Development. Rosa turned to modeling in 2004, doing work for TV networks and local business, and by 2006, she’d become popular enough to attract the attention of U.S. agencies.
Fast-forward to 2012, and Rosa Acosta is an on-the-move celebrity. Visit her website, and you’ll see the many facets of her career: dance, modeling, fitness, and acting. There’s also a blog and online store, where fans can buy everything from air fresheners and magazines to DVDs, health supplements, and workout sets. Oh, and there are plenty of photos to gawk at, so guys with no intention of working out or shopping for stretch pants will find plenty to like.
