Keely was named Penthouse magazine’s Pet of the Month in October 2009. She was named Runner-Up for Pet of the Year in March 2011, finishing behind Nikki Benz. Keely also writes a sex advice column called The Dirty Details for Penthouse’s sister publication, Penthouse Forum.
Her ethnic background is a mixture of Irish and “a teeny bit Cuban” and “a very, very small part Hispanic”. Describing her ancestry, she notes that "I may have some Latin heritage, but I also have more Irish heritage". Keely has had affairs with men and women in her personal life, and she is a self-proclaimed “nerd”. She has stated that, while on camera, she will only have sex with women; and she dislikes porn actresses that are gay-for-pay. Keely was close friends with fellow porn actress Haley Paige, who was murdered in August 2007.
