Profile Bio Text
Adrianne Marie Curry (born August 6, 1982 in Joliet, Illinois) is an American fashion model and reality television star. Curry first became publicly known as the winner of the first season of America`s Next Top Model. She is married to Christopher Knight, who portrayed Peter Brady on The Brady Bunch. She currently runs a weekly show on the NowLive network.
Curry has been very open about the trauma she experienced in her youth. She was abducted as a child and raped in her teens, as she mentioned in the third season premiere of My Fair Brady. She dropped out of Joliet West High School in Joliet, Illinois in 1999 when she was a junior due to having had a gun pulled on her; she later earned her GED. On America`s Next Top Model, she mentioned having been the victim of numerous modeling scams during her pursuit of a modeling career. Curry turned to drugs and attempted suicide. Prior to entering Top Model, Curry had gone to rehab and had ended her heroin, cocaine, and self-injury habits. Before participating in America`s Next Top Model, Curry was a waitress at Hooters, Applebees, and Lone Star Steakhouse.
Curry auditioned for the debut season of America`s Next Top Model and became one of the ten girls to make it into the house. She became the first winner of the competition, defeating the runner-up Shannon Stewart.
Curry lives in Los Angeles. She has modeled for Life & Style Weekly, Us Weekly, Star, OK!, Stuff, People, Maxim, Marie Claire, Spanish Marie Claire,Von Dutch, Von Dutch Watches, Salon City, Macy`s, Famous Stars and Straps, Lucky, Ed Hardy, Kinis Bikinis, Beverly Hills Choppers, and Merit Diamonds.
Curry appeared on the cover and in a nude pictorial for Playboy in February 2006 (U.S. Version), for which she was paid (US) $2,000,000. She returned for a second nude pictorial in the January 2008 issue.
Curry`s runway shows include Anne Bowen Spring 2005, Jamie Pressly, Pamela Anderson`s line, Ed Hardy, Von Dutch, and Christopher Deane. She has appeared in a commercial for the Merit Diamonds Sirena Collection that ran from November 2004 to January 2006.
Curry was a co-host on the television game show Ballbreakers. In 2006, she appeared on Gameshow Marathon as a celebrity panelist on the Match Game episode. She starred in "Rock Me Baby" (2004) and "Half and Half" (2003) on UPN. Curry also appeared on FX`s (2007) DIRT starring Courtney Cox, with whom she shared scenes. Adrianne has also been a special guest on Criss Angel`s show, "Mind Freak".
Curry appeared on WE tv`s From Russia with Love. The show documents her trip to Russia. It is set to air in November 2007. She has also starred in the films Fallen Angels, Light Years Away and "Jack Rio".
America`s Next Top Model has dissociated itself with Curry (and vice versa), having not mentioned her in any episodes subsequent to Season 2 (where she guest-starred in an episode), except the opening of Season 6. This was reportedly due to Curry criticizing Top Model and Tyra Banks for not delivering the promised prizes she won. Tyra then retaliated by removing Adrianne from the show. She also stated that Tyra was fake, claiming the supermodel was the nicest person in the world when the camera was on, but once it wasn`t she became "Naomi Campbell in your face." Tyra continues to shun Adrianne from the show, who claims that she didn`t get what she won.
In early 2005, Curry appeared on VH1`s fourth season of The Surreal Life. After the season ended, Curry and fellow house guest Christopher Knight began dating, and later moved in with each other. On September 11, 2005, VH1 began airing My Fair Brady, a show that documented their life together and paid her an estimated US $450,000. The show led her to being featured in Maxim`s Hot 100, a list of the "hottest" women on earth. and ranked #100 on the Maxim Hot 100 Women of 2005.. Knight proposed to Curry on the season finale of the show, which aired on November 6, 2005. The show was renewed for a second season, and focused on the couple`s wedding preparations. The second season began airing on VH1 in June 2006. The couple wed in Curry`s hometown of Joliet on May 29, 2006 in a gothic-style wedding. Says Curry of the goth-themed ceremony, "I wanted to go as Gothic as I could and as traditional as I could without ruffling anyone`s feathers. ... I wanted to have a black dress ... but I knew it would break my grandmother`s heart." Season 3 of My Fair Brady 3 is set to begin airing on January 21, 2008.
On the October 3, 2005 broadcast of the Opie and Anthony XM Satellite Radio show, Curry discussed her bisexuality and revealed numerous past relationships with women. In addition, on the January 17, 2006 broadcast of Howard Stern`s Sirius Satellite Radio show, Curry discussed her sexual orientation at length.
