Christy is of part-Italian ancestry, since her mother is of Italian-American descent.

While waiting for a bus in Hollywood, Christy was approached by porn star Greg Rome, who suggested that she would be a great figure model. He gave her Jim South’s business card, the agent of the World Modeling Agency, and Christy made a call that would change her life for good. She was soon signed with the Agency, and was first featured in several men’s magazines, before making her debut on screen, in “Swedish Erotica 57” in 1984, and since then featured in over 100 adult films, which increased her wealth to a large degree. She retired from the adult film industry in 1997, but not before she won several prestigious awards, including the F.O.X.E Female Fan Favorite AVN Award in the category Best Group Sex Scene for the film “The Show” (1996), and many others.

Aside from appearing in the pornographic films, Christy has also been recognized as a radio host; from 2005 to 2011 she was the co-host of the show “Night Calls”, aired through Playboy Radio, which is syndicated through Sirius XM Satellite Radio, and then in 2011 was appointed as co-host with Ginger Lynn of Sirius XM Satellite Radio’s Spice Sex Circus. That was not the end of her radio engagements, since she became host of the show “Legends of Porn” the same year, while in December 2013, she started her own show on Vivid Radio on Sirius/XM Channel 102, called “The Christy Canyon Show”, all of which added considerably to her wealth.

Christy wrote and published her autobiography in 2003, entitled “Lights, Camera, Sex”, which no doubt boosted her wealth somewhat. She has been interviewed in depth on ABC News, and was a judge on “Jenna’s American Sex Star” in 2013,

These days she is still very active on her own web site, working on Vivid Radio, and for Ebay selling various types of merchandise, so her net worth is still ticking over..

Regarding her personal life, Christy has been married and divorced three times; her first husband was Tom Sinopoli and their marriage lasted from 1993 until 1994. Then in 1996 she married Jeremy Stone from whom she divorced in 1999. She married for the third time in 2003 to Grant, but the two divorced the following year. She has two adopted children.
