We have a lovely lady coming in to do a signing here at the Dragon's Den, Christy Hemme. She is a model, singer, and former professional WWE wrestler. She currently conducts backstage interviews for TNA’s television program, iMPACT! Her professional wrestling career began after winning the 2004 Diva Search competition held by WWE. She subsequently wrestled for TNA Wrestling, retiring at the end of 2009. As a model, she has been the cover girl for Maxim, Playboy, and Rolling Stone. She has appeared in commercials for AT&T, TrimSpa, and was a spokesmodel for Hawaiian Tropic.
Christy Hemme is in Pougkeepsie for an event at the Hudson Valley Civic Center. Hemme will be at the Dragon’s Den to give autographs, pose with fans for pictures, and answer questions about her career. Photos of Hemme and other merchandise will be available for purchase in-store. We welcome fans and customers alike to come on in during the appearance of Christy Hemme at our store!
