Dannie Diesel, aka Danielle on "American Pickers", Played Roller Derby, Performs Burlesque

Dannie Diesel

Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz from The History Channel's American Pickers are cute and funny, but the girl that runs their Antique Archaeology shop is hot! (More pics below!)

Danielle Colby-Cushman was a close of friend of Mike's before she starting working at the office for the show. He chose her because he wanted someone that didn't look like they worked in an antiques shop. 

"I wanted people to look at antiques like they’re fun, they’re rad, they’re killer, they’re awesome," Mike said. "I wanted people to know that they didn’t have to have a blue blazer and ten cats to be an antique dealer."

Besides being awesome with antiques, Danielle has some hobbies that make her even hotter! As her alter ego Dannie Diesel, she owned and participated in a roller derby team called the Big Mouth Mickies for three years, until injuries forced her to give up the sport. 

She also created her own burlesque troupe, Burlesque Le'Moustache, which she still performs with today! She only needed to attend one show to become hooked.

"Growing up in a strict household, I think I went into that evening thinking that burlesque was taboo and wrong and bad," she explains. "But what I realized after I left that event was how absolutely liberating it was, to be in a room with women on stage who were ranging from a size zero to a size of, easily, 28 - all different types of women, with all different strengths."

But that's not all! Danielle also owns a clothing boutique, 4 Miles 2 Memphis, and she creates many of the designs herself. Confidence and creativity is so sexy! Check out these pics of Dannie Diesel and The Dirt Dauber's music video she was recently featured in!
