Contortionist Christa McKenna was once world famous and
had several TV appearances, now she uses her mind-boggling flexibility to plead for spare change. These
heartbreaking pictures show a 60-year-old former Playboy model who has resorted to showing off her bendy body in a
desperate attempt to raise cash.

Once dubbed the ‘Spider Lady’ during a spell of 1970′s
stardom, contortionist Christa McKenna now uses her skills
to earn a living on the streets of Grand Rapids, Michigan.
In an unfortunate fall from grace, the contortionist begs for
change on the corner of Wealthy St. using the flexible limbs
that once made her a star.

Christa was well known for her appearance on ‘The Gong
Show
’ in 1979, where she wowed audience by tying her body
in knots but she also appeared in Playboy magazine.
Since then, the aged entertainer has fallen on tough times –
having gone from gracing the pages of Playboy to begging
on the streets of Michigan.
Holding a sign saying “60 years old: need a job, God and you
– please help me”, Christa – who suffers from scoliosis and
stenosis – says she is lucky to get $7 a day.
Speaking to MLive, she said: “I just don’t know how I got to
be this way.”
