Roselyn “Rosie” Keo was the daughter of Cambodian refugees. When she was younger, her parents got caught up in gambling and nightlife, taking off for Atlantic City, leaving Rosie and her siblings to be raised by their elderly grandparents. She was a wild child, getting in fights, having bad boyfriends, typical teenage rebel stuff. She was growing up Rockland County, and by the age of 17, she dropped out of school and got a job working at New York City Diner to help with expenses at home. There was a gentleman’s club nearby called, Lace, and the dancers would often come into the diner after their shifts. One night a manager at Lace tipped her $20 bucks on a $20 dollar ticket and told her she should hit up the club if she was interested in making “real money.” Soon after she went to the club, lied about her age, and started working the pole.  What followed became the basis for the hit film Hustlers starring Jennifer Lopez, Lizzo and Cardi B.
