Benton moved on from modeling to become a well rounded performer. She managed to land herself roles in both film and television programs, but acting was not all Benton set out to conquer. Barbi was also a country music fan, with a love of singing, and found success with several albums of country music. In the 1990s, Barbi found herself once again working for Playboy. Benton was also willing to head back to the Playboy mansion when E! produced a special focusing on Hugh Hefner's many romantic partners.
