Esther Baxter (1984- ), also known as Miss Freek a Leek, was one of the top American video vixens from 2004 to 2007. She has appeared in more than 30 hip hop videos and in more than a dozen spreads in magazines like King, XXL, Vibe and Smooth.
At 22 she retired to go back to school and be near her sick father.
The reasons for her success are not hard to find: in addition to being hard-working, she has a sweet, beautiful face and an amazing body: 34DD-24-40 (86-61-102 cm). By 13 her breasts were already a D, way more than most grown women. It is all God-given. Even the best doctors could not have given her such a beautiful body.
She is mixed: she is not just black, but also part Norwegian, Puerto Rican, Cuban and Indian. She has green eyes.
She comes from Miami, one of 16 children. She waited tables at Red Lobster, a chain of seafood places. Then her brother got her hooked up with an agent. She started modelling at 18.
At first she was one of the many girls dancing in the background of hip hop videos. Then in 2004 she was featured in Petey Pablo’s “Freek a Leek”. It made her name.
At the beginning of “Freek a Leek” she is standing in front of a car. She is moving her body and looking straight at you with her big beautiful eyes. It is a hard thing for a man to get out of his mind. In the middle she dances alone in a blue swimsuit. She was no longer just another dancing girl.
She was also featured in “Oh Yes (Mr Postman)” (2006) by Juelz Santana where she plays his girlfriend, mouthing “Oh Yes”.
She has been in dozens of other videos, but those are the two I most remember.
At one video she made $12,000 and got to keep maybe $10,000 worth of clothes and shoes. That comes to $22,000 (2000 crowns) for one day of work.
She loves how beautiful she is. She has no trouble showing it off to the world.
Men love to look at her, of course, but some say she is setting a bad example for young girls growing up. They see her on television too, dancing half-naked, looking impossibly beautiful, presenting herself as a sex object for men.
Baxter says that parents should not let her bring up their children. They have to ground their children in the truth, not in the made-up world of television. She says the videos are no more serious and true than ads for Laffy Taffy, where people’s heads become big.
She was a virgin till 18 on her wedding night on Valentine’s Day. She married her high school sweetheart, but it did not last: he could not stand all the male attention she was getting.
In 2007 she retired. She has already done it all as a video vixen. She went back to school to learn how to sell houses.
