Corinna Harney-Jones burst onto the scene when she appeared in the August 1991 issue of Playboy as the featured centerfold at the tender age of 18. She went on to win the coveted title of Playmate of the Year and graced the cover of the June 1992 issue.
Those accomplishments kicked off a 30-year career in the entertainment business during which she worked with some of the biggest names in Hollywood. She produced and starred in her first feature film "Pitcher and the Pin Up," and appeared in the motion pictures "Vegas Vacation" and "Rat Race" in addition to appearances in a host of television programs. In 2021, she added a Best Actress trophy to her mantle for her role in the independent short film "Hit On Me."
Most recently, Corinna produced the highly acclaimed clue solving pub crawl comedy "Alibi: The Show That Isn't A Show!" in downtown Las Vegas which featured Southern Nevada's best comedians and improvisers. Her career also went full circle with "The Bunny Chronicles," a podcast which chronicles and pays homage to the incredible legacy of Hugh Hefner through the stories of those who worked most closely with him on the iconic publication, "Playboy Magazine." Corinna produces and hosts the podcast along with fellow Playboy Playmate Echo Johnson (January 1993).
Over the past 30 years, Corinna has balanced a career and a family. She has been married to her husband, Chris, for 27 years and they have one beautiful daughter together.
