Raised in Long Island New York, CC Fontana moved to LA at the age of 14 with blistering ambitions to have a successful career in the modeling industry and entertainment business. I was so focused on the industry, she says, I knew one day I'd be successful in it. CC always found herself fighting for her exotic ethnicity in the business because, I don't want to change for them, she says. They always have something to say about your size or your shape, and I'm happy with my curves. Of Venezuelan and Italian descent, Fontana credits Jennifer Lopez as being an excellent role model of self-image. In addition to already having my own jewelry line, "Guy and Eva By CC Fontana", and record label, "World Star Entertainment Group", I see myself owning a lot of other businesses in the industry. A movie production company, perfume line, shoe line and clothing line. I want to create an empire, she says. She looks forward to writing her own material and is even interested in managing other young artists.
