Christina Lee ("Christy") Hemme is an American model and pro wrestler. Christy , best known for her appearances with wrestling promotions WWE and TNA Wrestling.

Christy debuted in TNA Wrestling on April 23th, 2006 at Lockdown 2006, giving an envelope to commentator Mike Tenay containing the announcement that Larry Zbyszko had been placed on probation and Raven (whom Zbyszko had fired earlier that year in kayfabe) had been reinstated. In addition to her hosting role on TNA iMPACT!, she is also the co-host of the Internet show TNA Global iMPACT! with Jeremy Borash. At TNA Hardcore War, Christy refereed a match between Traci and Gail Kim. In July 2006, she was featured on Spike TV's Women of Action special.

In September 2006, Christy recorded a song entitled "Society Box", which will be featured on TNA's November 21, 2006 music release, 3rd Degree Burns. She has also been travelling to Windsor, Ontario to train under TNA agent Scott D'Amore in between TNA TV tapings. She won TNA's Knockout of the Year for 2006.

On January 14, 2007 at the TNA Final Resolution PPV, Christy came out and interrupted the Voodoo Kin Mafia and cut a promo about women's involvement in wrestling today. She said that she wanted to wrestle too - and the mostly male crowd in the TNA arena jeered her. Kip James called her names, which garnered him a slap from Christy, while BG James attempted to play peacemaker.

In the following weeks, Kip and Christy would be shown getting into a fair few arguments over his lack of respect for her, and for women as a whole. Christy made her TNA in-ring debut at TNA Against All Odds where she wrestled and defeated "The Big Fat Oil Guy" in a Tuxedo Match.

On the March 8 version of Impact, Christy asked Jim Cornette for a match pitting VKM against her a new, previously undisclosed, team, at TNA Destination X. Cornette consented and "booked the match" in storyline. On the pay-per-view, Christy introduced The Heartbreakers (formerly The Heart Throbs of the WWE). Despite Christy's attempts to give Kip James a "low blow", VKM defeated her team, who she later browbeat at ringside.

In November 2006, Christy participated in the Queens of Chaos shows in Paris, France. She wrestled two matches, losing to former WCW talent April Hunter. She then defeated British wrestler Minx to earn the right to referee the championship match, which was eventually won by Hunter.

Christy made her acting debut in the film Fallen Angels (2006).
