While other reality starlets wind up on the covers of tabloids caught in various scandals or victimized by close friends looking to make a fast buck by ratting them out, American Pickers star Danielle Colby Cushman finds herself on the cover of the current issue of Pin Up America on her own terms. Or on the terms of Dannie Diesel, her burlesque dancing alter ego.
In the cover photo, Danielle poses with a grungeabilly customized Harley wearing a tight black leather vest with matching “Motor Maids” hat and an ANTiSEEN rebel flag skirt. Danielle’s vivid array of tattoos are on display, as are a number of jewelry pieces you could probably find at her 4 Miles 2 Memphis shop in LeClaire, Iowa, right around the corner from Antique Archaeology.
Inside the magazine there is a Dannie Diesel centerfold featuring Danielle and some of her dance troupe Burlesque le’ Moustache that includes this wonderful photo taken by Joshua Black Wilkins:
