Christy Hemme-Playboy Update; Photoshoot; & More

CINCINNATI, OH – The end of March may only signal the beginning of Spring, but when next month’s Playboy Magazine hits newsstands, it’s gonna feel like a hot July Summer day.

The reason of course is because the Raw Diva Search winner, Christy Hemme, will be gracing the cover of the super-popular gentlemen’s magazine – the fourth WWE Diva (Chyna, Sable and Torrie were the others) to do so – and will be featured inside with a sizzling hot pictorial. For Christy, the opportunity to pose for Playboy Magazine was a dream come true, although she was nervous when the day finally came.

“The shoot was awesome,” said Christy outside her dressing room at the US Bank Arena. “It was very well-organized, and everybody involved in it were absolute perfectionists, in every aspect of the shoot. But going into it, I knew what was expected, and what I was going to do, but I got so nervous, that I broke out in hives on my neck. Then, once I got used to it, and the situation, it felt freeing – it felt really great. I almost loved it too much.”

Despite being extremely nervous while shooting her cover/ spread for the April 2005 Playboy Magazine spread in Los Angeles, Hemme has already graced the covers of various publications, including last year’s WWE Diva Search Magazine, and is extremely excited about her issue’s March 10th release date.

“I can’t wait for the release of this issue,” explained the former “Man Show” Juggy dancer. “Obviously I’m a little nervous, because my body is going to be out there for everyone to see, but I’m more excited about it than anything else. I’m also hoping that it will lead more opportunities for me within the company.”

Since winning the Diva Search Contest back in September, Christy has become one of the most popular Divas on Raw. She’s won nearly every contest she’s been in, and become somewhat of a hero amongst her fellow Divas by low-blowing Simon Dean after his verbal tirade against Christy, Victoria, and Maria last week. But Christy’s growing popularity has also made her a target for a certain other Diva.

“I don’t know why Trish attacked me tonight,” continued Christy, while rubbing her tender cheek that had just slapped by Trish. “She obviously doesn’t approve of my posing for Playboy, whereas I’m very proud to be doing it, and proud to be representing WWE in Playboy Magazine, so I’m really very upset about what she did to me.”

Despite the attack, Christy doesn’t plan on letting Trish’s slap ruin her forthcoming celebration, and to say that we’ve seen the last of the two Divas’ dislike for one another would be a definite mistake.

“I’m not going say that I’m going to get revenge on her,” continued Hemme, “but I’m not happy. It takes a lot to upset me, but that slap definitely did it.”
