Renee Tenison Was The First African-American Playmate Of The Year! Here’s Her Story!

An Important Playboy First!

My “2022 Sex Kitten Countdown” highlights the career of an important Playmate – she was the first ever African-American Playmate Of The Year!

Celebrating Renee Tenison!

Renee Tenison had a great career as a Playboy Model and Actress. She was born on December 2, 1968 in Caldwell, Idaho…but she wasn’t alone…more on that in a second.

If you look at the history of men’s magazines, it might be surprising that Playboy took so long to choose a black Playmate Of The Year…but she did receive the honor so bravo to her for that!

Renee became a Playmate when she was twenty years old and achieved immediate success.

She was chosen as Playboy’s Playmate of the Month in November 1989 – that sort of exposure helped her in her acting career as well, when she landed a number of TV shows and films at the time.

Renee’s Groundbreaking Step!

In 1990, Renee became the first African-American selected to be the Playboy’s Playmate of the Year.

Along with this honor, Renee ended up amassing 25 acting credits, with roles in TV series like “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” and “Married… with Children” among many others, as well as films like “The Nutty Professor II: The Klumps” in 200.

However, it was in 2002 that the world learned there was twice as much Renee to love!

This Playmate Has An Identical Twin!

That’s right, Renee has an identical twin sister, Rosie, who also worked as a Model!

It only made sense that Playboy would have the twins pose in their August 2002 issue – these are absolutely stunning photos!

These photos are beautifully shot and really capture the elegance of these twins.

Of course, the Tenison Sisters weren’t Playboy’s first “twins” pictorial:

That’s right, the Collinson Twins also posed together – to promote their classic Hammer horror film “Twins Of Evil!”

Since we’re talking Playboy “firsts”, how about the magazine’s tallest Playmate?

Cara Michelle was the tallest Playmate ever – but she was much more than that!

One last “first:

Susan Lynn Kiger was Playboy’s frist “X-rated” Playmate – click here to see why!

  1. It was certainly unusual to see black girls feature as glamour models in the UK.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. It always amazes me when magazines and movies can get hot twins to get naked — and more — together. The best so far are the Sorrell Sisters kissing in the shower in Cruel Intentions 2, and the Collinson sisters naked in bed making out in the 1971 movie Passion Potion.
