In the late 1990s, Kim Halsey — better known as Houston — was one of the biggest stars in the adult entertainment universe. Born in Long Beach, California, Houston moved freqently as a child, as she, her twin brother and her mother traveled across the country to be near her Army Officer father in Virginia and, after her parents divorced, settled in the Los Angeles area. After starting out as an exotic dancer and transitioning into adult films in 1995, Houston rose to fame with her appearances on The Howard Stern Show and her 1999 film, World’s Biggest Gangbang 3: Houston 620, in which she shattered the previous world record by having sex with 620 men in one day.
In 2004, Houston was inducted into the AVN Hall of Fame, after which she moved to Las Vegas, where she obtained her Real Estate license and retired from porn. In 2008, she was diagnosed with stage three melanoma. After enduring surgery and chemotherapy, the blonde bombshell is now cancer-free.
