The inspirational Corinna “Cory” Everson defined women’s bodybuilding in the 80s, during which she won Miss Olympia a record six times, and remains the only woman undefeated in the title.
Since then, the divine Miss E has been a regular on Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, in which she played Atalanta; and on Charmed as Hulk Paige. She has made numerous guest appearance in series such as Tarzan, Lois and Clarke and Home Improvement, as well as her own fitness series in the 1980s called BodyShaping.
Her films roles include Natural Born killers (1994) (playing TV Mallory), Double impact (1991) with Jean Claude Van Damme and Ballistic (1995) with Richard Rountree.

At 47, Cory is still one of the most photogenic, hardworking and knowledgeable bodybuilders around. She was inducted into the IFBB Hall of Fame in 1999.
She divorced bodybuilding husband Jeff in 1996, and is busy with several new projects, including her new TV fitness show, Gotta Sweat, her information-packed website, and raising her two kids with dentist hubby Steve Donia.
