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.
She describes her ethnic background as “a teeny bit Cuban” and “a very, very small part Hispanic”, but she has not elaborated on the rest of her ethnicity. 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.
