Shelly Rio, born Michelle Corbin, only child on her mother’s side. Her mom passed away when she was 3 and she never met her dad. She had a modest upbringing, raised in various foster homes and in group homes. She knew what it was to survive.
Shelly has always known since a little girl she wanted to model, but could’nt until she was out of the system. Once turned 19 and on her own she started making her own family and had her first son. Holding a number of jobs before pursuing her modeling career, Shelly worked as a waitress for 4 years. It was however, a customer that approched her and said you should be a model that Shelly decided it was now or never.
Shelly found a great photographer, Marvin Johns, and took some pictures. Then she shopped around for a agent and found one. From there everything took off. Originally from NJ, Shelly decided to move to Los Angeles to explore more opportunities.
Shelly’s career took off by working with some of the hottest video directors like Chris Robinson, Erik White, Benny Boom, Little X, Jesse Terrero, and Brian Barber. From there her career has expanded into commercial modeling, print modeling, and now acting. You have seen her grace the pages of XXL, Blackmen’s, Urban Teen Scene, and many more!
