Melissa, originally the girl next door from San Ramon is perhaps the most iconic national models presently before the public eye in Costa Rica. She is a role model of many poor young girls and got her start as a model waving checkered flags at the Guacima race track.
Melissa quickly caught the eye of the 59 year old track owner Carlos Rodgiruez at the tender age of 16. Her romantic adventures lead to an exchange of gunfire in San Jose when her American boyfriend Scott Kincer had a misunderstanding with Rodgiruez’s bodyguards. At the time Melissa was ending her relationship with Rodgiruez and didn’t mention to Kincer that she was still living in a condo paid for by the ex.
Her later exploits include contracts for Besame lingerie, Lontano Jeans, many shorted lived television shows, and series of business ventures in the San Ramon area. Alas her hugely career might be at an end now that she has is pregnant and withdrawn from the limelight.
The father is purported to be current boyfriend and soccer player Luis Villalobos. If reports are true then Melissa should be fairly well off as Luis’s father owns the San Ramon soccer league as well as considerable property and businesses in the area.
