September’s Porn Star News

Since ropeadope’s got the scene suggestions covered this week, I thought I’d take the opportunity to update you on what’s been going on in the lives of some of porn’s most popular stars.

Tera Patrick and Evan Seinfeld
Tera Patrick and Evan Seinfeld split up
Superstar porn actress Tera Patrick moved out of the L.A. home she shared with her long-time suitcase pimp Evan Seinfeld/Spyder Jonez this week. Seinfeld continues to hold the office of CEO at Teravision, Tera’s production studio, and in their breakup announcement, they said they looked forward to being best friends forever.

Jenna Jameson being sued by two different people
It was a rough month for Jenna Jameson who was sued both by her ex-brother-in-law and her divorce attorney over money she supposedly owes each. Her former husband’s brother alleges that Jameson (and his brother) owe him $125,000 for a loan they did not repay. Jameson’s divorce attorneys say they are owed $72,300 for representing her in her divorce from the ex she is being sued for $125,000 with.

Rocco being investigated for tax evasion in Italy
Although veteran woodsman Rocco Siffredi claims that he lives in Budapest, Hungary, Italian police feel that he is actually a resident of Italy and owes taxes on about $442,000 in undeclared income. Rocco’s lawyer is “not unduly concerned” about the charges. Only time will tell whether he’ll end up like Janine (who was recently released from prison after serving 6 months for tax evasion).

Daisy Marie is pregnant
Saving the best for last, cutie patootie Daisy Marie announced Tuesday that she’s pregnant via Twitter. She seems very happy about the pregnancy, which will be her first. Best wishes to her and her eventual baby. Let’s hope she returns to porn with a still-bangin’ body the way Eva Anglina did…

Update: The father of the baby is Recording Artist Sean “Fluee.”

Jenna Haze: In It To Win It

Jenna Haze at the AVN Show

I had the opportunity to interview Jenna Haze at the show this year and I found her to be delightful, though very very business-minded. This is a quality that can go either way (too much: boring performer, not enough: broke), but I think Jenna has a great balance. She does her best 100% of the time and really views this as a fun career, not just a job.

After Jenna Jameson’s shameful performance at last year’s AVN awards, Jenna’s proclamation on Saturday that she is going to “spread my legs forever for this business” made me smile. I think that’s because I really believe her.

Porn Star Boob Jobs: Before and After

I’ve been thinking about porn stars and their boob jobs. I’m not generally in favor, but I don’t intend this post to make any particular point about plastic surgery. It’s just interesting to me to look at the before and afters photos. I always wonder if they’re happy with their new boobs.

Jenna Jameson to Star in “Mainstream” Movie

Jenna JamesonAccording to Variety, vehemently ex-pornstar Jenna Jameson will have a starring role in the as yet un-IMDB’d movie War of the Dragon. I think the main reason that this is considered news is that the movie is not a horror film – the traditional domain of starring “mainstream” roles for pornstars.

According to the Variety story, the movie is about “a psychic and a martial arts expert who team to find the killers of their mothers.” I couldn’t even make this stuff up.

Birthday Girl Sasha Grey

Any Roots fans in the crowd? They released this video, starring Sasha Grey, for a new song called “Birthday Girl.” The song doesn’t appear on their newest album because, according to the group, the lighthearted sound just didn’t fit in with the rest of the songs.



The song/video are cute, but that’s not the main reason I’m posting them. What they bring to mind for me is the concept of a “cross-over” pornstar. In a world where women like Jenna Jameson and Tera Patrick are desperate to get “mainstream” exposure on VH1, what does it mean that Sasha Grey has become an indie darling (she also appeared in a Smashing Pumpkins video recently)? Can/will subculture fame eventually translate into widespread acceptance? Is that even desirable?

My feeling is no. The US isn’t Italy and even if Hugh Hefner’s girlfriends have a reality show, it doesn’t make them mainstream stars. It makes them porn girls with blurred out nipples on basic cable and I don’t see that changing any time soon.

Jenna Jameson Retires from Porn. Again.

I haven’t covered much in the way of industry news in this blog yet, but that’s mostly due to the dearth of actual news generated by the industry. But Jenna Jameson managed to make actual news last Saturday at the AVN Awards by very ungraciously announcing her intention to “never ever ever spread [her] legs in this industry ever” while presenting the award named in her honor. You can watch the video of her speech here.

Because I managed to catch a hell of a cold at the AVN show, I’ve had some time to sit and reflect on this incident. Many in the industry are taking it as the ultimate slap in the face from a woman whom many of them personally helped make very wealthy and famous.

Jenna’s relationship with porn is a complicated one (if you’ve read her book you know what I mean) and it should surprise no one that she’s lashing out against it yet again. What comes as a surprise to me, personally, is how much everyone seems to care. This may be a controversial stance, but in my opinion, Jenna Jameson hasn’t mattered in the adult industry in a long time. She stopped shooting movies several years ago and has devoted her time to running her own marginally popular company, appearing on basic cable and getting bad plastic surgery. I’ll be the first one to admit that Jenna was a powerhouse in the 1990’s – beautiful, smart, and most of all, profitable. But as she became the “crossover star” her AVN Award indicates, she left porn behind in search of C-list celebrity.

At this point, Jenna is one of the worst spokespersons we could have. She does nothing good for the industry by repeatedly trying to escape it. What porn really needs is someone like Stormy Daniels, the recipient of Jenna’s “crossover star of the year” award. A woman who loves her job, loves her fans, and who can proudly say (as she did), “I plan on spreading my legs for this industry for quite some time!” Representing a maligned industry is a hard job – one that Jenna is clearly not cut out for anymore. So I say: Let her go. We’re all better off.
