Personal life

Born in Texas, and Tennessee. She spent her teenage years in Daytona Beach, Florida. In Florida she became something of a wild child, sacrificing school and books for sunning and bikinis on the Florida beaches.[5] She lost her virginity at age 15 when she was raped[5] and had her first sexual encounter with a girl (who was her roommate) at age 17.[6]

After high school, she moved to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, where she performed a variety of jobs, among them, modeling aside the championship trophy after the annual NASCAR race held there was over.[7] She worked as a prostitute at the Moonlite BunnyRanch, and according to Dennis Hof made $2000 a night.[8][9] 2002 saw Thomas speaking publicly about her life at the BunnyRanch in the HBO documentary series entitled Cathouse, and in 2003, she appeared in its sequel.[8]

Thomas is the aunt of porn star Sunrise Adams.[10][11][12][13][14][15]

Thomas was married to Kent Wallace, her publicist and co-star from her reality show Sin City Mom.[7]

She dated Dennis Hof, the owner of Moonlight Bunny Ranch, during her tenure there, and during that time legally adopted the name Diane Hof.[16]

Adult film career

Thomas shot her first adult film when she was 18, appearing in Mr. Peeper's 25th Anniversary alongside her husband, Zach, and another man.[5]

She says the name "Sunset" was inspired by a comment of her husband when he said "You know what, honey?'re pretty as a sunset"; the name Thomas popped up when she was thinking of a good last name to go with it.[6]

After appearing in the Cathouse documentaries, Thomas was featured in the 2005 documentary Pornstar Pets and made an appearance on Maury, in which she encountered a crush from her middle school days. The episode was titled 'I Was An Ugly Teen... Now I'm a Hot, Sexy 10!'. In 2006, Thomas obtained her own show on KSEX radio called Sunset After Sunset. In 2007, she appeared on the Montel Williams Show to discuss her porn career and being a mother.

In April 2009 Thomas released her erotic fiction novel, Anatomy of an Adult Film, which was largely a fictionalized account of her adult film career.[17]

She was inducted into the XRCO Hall of Fame in April 2010.[18]
