Former TNA Knockout and Former WWE Diva, Christy Hemme
Christy Hemme was born Christina Lee Hemme on October 28th, 1980 in Poway, California.

She currently works for TNA wrestling, but she started out in wrestling with the WWE.
Christy started out in a dance team known as "The Purrfect Angelz".
UPDATE: On April 1st, 2016, Christy left TNA. No it wasn't a joke.
Christy Hemme Starting Out
But before "The Purrfect Angelz", Christy was a model.
As a model she appeared in magazines like Maxim, Playboy, Rolling Stone, and Stuff.
Christy went on to do commercials for AT&T, TrimSpa and Hawaiian Tropic.
She later appeared on Comedy Central's The Man Show and she competed as a quarterback for the Chicago Bliss Lingerie Football League team in the 2006 Lingerie Bowl.
Diverse enough? We're just getting started......
Christy Hemme Goes to the WWE
Christy then participated in the 2004 WWE Diva Search. Christy won and began her WWE career as a member of the Raw roster.
Christy had a feud with another Diva Search constant Carmella DeCesare. The feud finally ended in a "lingerie pillow fight" at Taboo Tuesday on October 19, with Christy pinning her.
Then she began a feud with then "heel" WWE Women's Wrestling Champion Trish Stratus.
Even with Trish's enemy Lita training her Trish soundly defeated her at WrestleMania 21.
Christy Hemme in TNA
Christy then went on to feud with Victoria and Melina before finally being released by the WWE in 2005.
Christy joined TNA Wrestling in April 2006. She has remained with them ever since, but is still allowed to branch out into other projects by TNA.
One of those projects was going to Paris, France and facing Indy legend April Hunter at the Queens of Chaos event. She has also wrestled in several Indy matches here in the US.
Besides wrestling, she is the founder and lead singer in HEMME.
Christy Hemme "Retires"?
Christy has also done a few movies. She appeared in Fallen Angels (2006) as Lust, Bloodstained Memoirs (2006), a wrestling documentary and the yet to be released Bubba's Chili Parlor.
On December 16th, 2009, Christy announced that she had officially retired from in-ring competition due to injuries she had sustained.
She became the TNA backstage interviewer, had a small run in with Cookie (Becky Bayless) and on Impact! on April 28, Christy began her new role as a ring announcer.
Christy was married to Charley Patterson in late 2010.
Christy in FWE and WWFX
Along with current and former TNA and WWE stars like Mickie James, Candice Michelle, ODB and Melina, Christy has been doing some work with indy wrestling promotions Family Wrestling Entertainment and World Wrestling Fan Xperience.
At FWE she has refereed some matches and I have heard that she wrestled at WWFX, but I have no real confirmation of that.
I watched the WWFX Champions Showcase Tour TV commercial and the only female wrestlers I saw were Jillian Hall and Melina.
Christy Outside of Wrestling
Besides being a former WWE Diva and a TNA Knockout, Christy also sings.
She released several singles with her band "HEMME" and recorded an EP titled, "Where Are You?".
She also appeared in the 2006 horror film, "Fallen Angels" portraying Lust.
