Price chose the first name Kirsten for her stage name because it is the name of her best friend.[3] She has stated that, as a child, she wanted to be a model on The Price Is Right, which is how she came up with the last name Price.[3] She began her adult career doing nude modeling and stripping.[7] Her first two scenes were in Dressed for Sex for Original Sin Films and Wet Teens 7 for Simon Wolf Productions.[1][3] She eventually signed a contract with Wicked Pictures in 2005.[2][5] She also competed in Miss Hawaiian Tropic pageants before entering the adult film industry in 2004.[1][8]

In 2006, Price appeared as one of four finalists (and the eventual winner) on the first season of the reality TV program My Bare Lady.[2][8] In March 2006, Jesse Jane and Price became the hosts of Playboy TV's most popular live show, Night Calls, and Price has previously hosted the Playboy TV series The Bang. Price also played a small role in an episode of the television series Weeds.[2][9]

She had her breasts augmented in late 2009.[1]

Price co-hosted the 2010 AVN Awards show, along with porn actress Kayden Kross and comedian Dave Attell.[10] In 2010 and 2011, Price appeared several times, including as an extreme sports correspondent, on the G4TV late-night program "Rated A For Adult".[11][12][13] She has worked for both Playboy and Showtime as a red-carpet reporter, and she has co-hosted (with Dave Navarro) the AVN Awards red carpet event for several years.[2]

Personal life

Price married fellow porn actor Barrett Blade on October 9, 2004, but they have since divorced.[2] She took a break from adult films for a while after she got divorced from Blade.[2] She is now married to pornographic actor Keiran Lee and has three children with him.[4]
