Jenna Jameson is not worth $30 million

While the world is going on about how much weight Jenna Jameson has gained, after seeing her on Celebrity Big Brother UK, I’m confused by something else. I could care less what she weighs. What I want to know is how the world still thinks she is a multi-millionaire. Trust me, she’s not.

Here is a comment I’ve heard many times over, or see on various news sites talking about Jenna Jameson … “I still can’t believe she cams on MFC when she’s worth $30m!”

Could it be more fucking obvious? If some chick is worth $30 million bucks you think she’s going to show you her tits and ass for $100? Of fucking course not.

Jenna Jameson is not worth $30 million. She probably isn’t worth $150,000 at this point.

I’m not being a dick here. I’m just being honest. What money she might have had for selling her company was split with her now ex-husband Jay Grdina and then she spent the rest over the last 10 or 15 years, including a mountain of legal bills, clothes, cars, trips, having two kids, etc.

She wrote a book and that didn’t go well, so there was no extra money from that.

Those few companies who will book her at her going rate of between $5,000 and $25,000 per appearance are now extremely far and few between.

The only thing she really did have to her name was a house she bought with her last husband and apparently she lost that in the divorce as well and is currently in the middle of a lawsuit regarding that piece of property.

So why people think she still has all this money and would be willing to shake her thing for pennies on MFC is beyond me but no, you can bet your ass she doesn’t have much to her name anymore. Which is why in fact she was on MyFreeCams in the first place.

Dill Bill Asher of Vivid pull a Bill Cosby?

When I read the story that Stefani Morgan was making a return to porn, I was quite honestly shocked. I know they say everyone eventually comes back, but fuck if this one didn’t surprise me.

Last I heard of Stefani Morgan she was leaving porn when her then relationship with Vivid co-owner Bill Asher,  and Ivy League-educated MBA and former executive of Playboy – ended in a very ugly way. And by ugly way I mean, apparently he fucking raped her ass (as Stefani herself put it).

Then if raping her wasn’t enough, and yes apparently there was a witness to this rape, he tried to strong armed her into signing agreement (according to the rumors back then when it all went down), stating she not only could not talk about the rape but that she couldn’t come back to porn.

Of course all of this took place years ago. So maybe now something has changed. The question is, what? Has enough time passed that Bill Asher is no longer worried about the rape due to some statue of limitation running out?

Or does he just think we all fucking forgot about it?

I don’t care how much fucking money you have, and how much time has passed (((look at Bill Cosby))), raping a chick isn’t fucking cool. No means fucking no, dick.

Below you’ll find the detailed about the Bill Asher and Stefani Morgan relationship, including her detailed account of the rape.


She writes on MySpace (original source link):

I should have never met up with you and Andrew. From the beginning you just kept playing with my head, making you think you cared while you were out sleeping with numerous girls. I sat at home thinking maybe you’d stop, you’d realize you didn’t need that to make yourself feel better. It never happened. I hadn’t seen you in a month, and leaped at the chance to, you already had complete hold of my heart. We partied all night; everything was perfect (in a Sid and Nancy way). A few days later when I came over, we slept together; you wanted to get up early. I left so you could get to bed.

The next day I asked how you were so tired. You laughed when you told me a girl had dropped by late, and you fucked her. At that point I told myself I wasn’t going to get hurt again.

So a couple days later when an ex-fling called I decided to meet up with him. I tried to get my mind off you, I slept with him, which is completely juvenile, and I cried the whole way home because I hated myself for it.

When I told mo the next night she tried to convince me it was ok that I had. She and I started up with our own lil party at dinner, followed by her house.

You said we could stop by the next day had come over to continue our party with you, we both wanted e. everything was fine, then mo went to bed, and you asked me if I slept with JJ. I said yes, I couldn’t lie to you.

You commanded I get upstairs, then told me to “lay on the bed, I’m going to rape your ass” I pleaded, and fought, so you pinned me down and forced me to take it.

I didn’t know the man on top of me. You went downstairs and left me sobbing on the bed. I heard you ask mo something and I picked myself up, not knowing what was going on. Mo was in a daze, and I found you in the living room.

You had ME pleading for forgiveness. You had just stripped me of all my rights just minutes before and I was apologizing. I’m so glad it happened, don’t get me wrong, because of that I went to talk to mo and she started getting sick from partying so hard too long,

I was horrified, I had never seen that firsthand, let alone someone I cared about. Looking back on it I think that is the only reason why I told myself I was ok after what you did. What if something happened to mo, we would’ve just been sleeping upstairs, no one to help her. You left the next day before I woke up to avoid me. I wanted to die, I felt so dirty and guilty.

The next week we chatted, I blamed myself for everything and thought I deserved it; I was filming the following weekend after all. You went to Jay’s Christmas party, and Andrew went along. Little did you know at the time, Andrew’s date was a hooker.

She didn’t fuck Andrew, she fucked you…and since she said she always used a condom you didn’t use one. I forgave you, why not? I did for everything else up to that point. We made up, we partied together, and I missed my family’s Christmas because of it. And you let me sleep while you went out with your parents, when you came back, you were upset, and you ended it.

2 days later, the hooker from the party contacted me to say she was pregnant and it was yours, she couldn’t get a hold of you so I got the wonderful news, great. I reminded myself it was an accident, you didn’t do this on purpose, and I stood by your side.

When I saw you a few days later, you searched my text messages and saw merry Xmas exchanges between 2 men from my past and I. heaven forbid I still get along with them. You then took me to Scottsdale for new years to just make me feel guilty.

Once again you commanded me to get on the bed. Saying, “Lay on the bed, I’m going to rape your ass” I was so horrified of you.

Your eyes had even changed. “The more you fight, the longer and more painful it will be“.

Our suite was so isolated, I didn’t know what to do, what you would do, you weren’t yourself and I feared the worst. As I begged, you went to your suitcase and grabbed 2 ties, and tied each ankle to a bedpost.

How do you do that to someone? You told me to bite on the pillow and not to scream. When you stopped I lay there horrified for my life. I didn’t do anything wrong. I don’t care how many times you say I did, I didn’t.

You rubbed my back and said, “mo was right, girls like you are unlovable. No one has ever cared for you, no guys in your past, but I do.” I apologized once again. A part of me felt sorry for you, you know not what you do, even at your age.

I remember saying something smart and you went to grab me again, I ran to the bathroom and locked myself in. you pound and pounded on the door as I pleaded for you to stop.

You eventually did. And I remember lying there on the cold floor half naked; I had never been so afraid my entire life. I crawled out to my purse after several minutes past, I grabbed my phone and then locked myself in the bathroom again to book the soonest flight home.

The suites at Sanctuary are so isolated I was scared to call for help. what if you heard me? I figured booking a flight was safest. When you came back banging on the door, shortly after, I thought you had heard me, I pleaded for you not to hit me, I was sorry, and you promised not to hit me.

When I cracked the door the man I knew was back, you looked horrified seeing me like that you coddled me and said you would never hit me. I remember sobbing while you whipped my tears, I wish you had beat and left me there alone rather than feel what I felt inside.

I am such an idiot for letting you talk me down. I forgave you. I am the fool. Ryan and mark were on their way; my worst fear was having people know what you had done. I honestly, to this day, know from the bottom of my heart that that is not who you are. Maybe I am in denial, but it isn’t you. I got myself ready; I was just one hit of e away from forgetting how much you hated me inside. I’ve never been so dependent on drugs and alcohol, but that was the only time I felt remotely happy.

The next week or so, you flew the hooker in and handled the abortion. It wasn’t yours in the end, and to be honest I forgave you even more so because it wasn’t.

Then we had AVN’s, the last of my journey, I was leaving, all we had to do was get through the week and for me to not have to go on that damn stage to accept an award. We had it; it was supposed to be downhill finally.

I had even changed all my contacts so you didn’t have to worry about “my horrible past” (your words not mine) you still checked my phone and altered most things out of my mouth…. you’d think after years of drugs you’d be aware of your anger and paranoia…maybe that’s just my wishful thinking though. You adored me so much when had good days, others I felt like I couldn’t go on.

The hardest part was that you don’t hear yourself speak. You don’t realize what you say, your body language. A part of me felt you knew that you had hurt me and just tried to push me away as much as possible to end it. That was your way of saving me from you. Although my moods and thought were never clear, it was drugs, withdrawals, then all over again.

And the pain I had was just getting pushed back further in my head, I never had the strength to deal with it. You had become my everything. You controlled me. I lost everything without even realize it. I never once thought of what I wanted. And that was my fault; I loved you more than you loved yourself.

My goal everyday was to make you see the good in yourself; I thought I was special enough to make you see it. But I was too naive at the time. You had cut me out almost completely by march. We had fought and made up for months, and every time was more intense then the time before. I’ll never forget when we were eating at the lil place down the street from you that we used to slip into for a late bite. You randomly said you fucked my as the night before when I was ambiened out.

“Your ass was gapping” you said. I didn’t know what to say, you smiled and said you weren’t lying. You had taken pictures of the whole thing. My body limp while you pounded my ass in my sleep. Pictures for your sick pleasure. You wonder why I cut my arm those few times. How did I let myself get to that point? When and where did I forget about me?

When did I stop defending myself and become a victim? And how the fuck could you smile through it all?? I developed this sick thought that if I could have anal sex with you and thoroughly enjoy it I could forget all the abuse you put me through.

After getting an object “lost in my body” as the nurse put it, one symptom remained. I had nausea, throughout the day, and it peaked midday. The dr. told me he would like me to call my dr. to see if I was pregnant. I told you as I left. Do you remember what you said? You told me to take some tests while you got a coat hanger.

Everything I dreamed it would be when I played house when I was young. Real, fucking gentleman. The whole way home you asked anxiously. The thing that killed me inside was when you said, ” god let’s hope not. I’d rather Vanessa (the hooker) have my child than you.” and you wonder why I lied to you saying that I wasn’t pregnant.

I hurt to so bad inside, my worst fear is that I would never get over the pain you put me through. I couldn’t look at that baby and hurt. I thought I wouldn’t be a good enough mother because of it. The thing that hurt most was that you wouldn’t change, you don’t want to. Look how long Nicole has been in your life, and you still haven’t. Why would you for this kid? You take such horrible care of yourself like nothing will ever happen.

I had you lying in my arms twice were you had taken too much and you had no idea you and spazming, and I remember lying there, watching you, crying. I was horrified. What if something did happen?

I lost my dad when I was 6, and it is hard. I have siblings that still aren’t over it 15 years later. All these reasons just scared me, I didn’t know what to do, and I was too scared. I was so in love with you still, and I didn’t want to blame you. I figured if you didn’t know I could only blame myself.

A few days later you got mad at me for celebrating Odette’s new show with her and the cast. I was drinking and men were hitting on me, they all knew I was in love, everyone knew about you. I had no life outside of you, how could they not? Yet you were pissed and ripped me to shreds the next morning. You altered my story, you were so mad; you didn’t even actually listen to a word out of my mouth. I blurted out I was pregnant.

And your exact words were, “well then we have another problem, it can’t be mine.” How the fuck could you say that?? I changed everything for you, just so you could cope with your own problems. I kept my mouth close so you could think what you wanted to. You were the center of my world and you accused me of cheating on you??

Do you know what that did to me? A couple days later we went to dinner and we talked about it, I told you was going to a clinic by my mom’s, I had planned on you never knowing. You said with Vanessa it is ok, but in my case it was sad. And you had the look in your eyes I never saw before. I felt that I was hurting you, so I tried to let you think I made the whole ting up.

But in the end, I couldn’t. I needed you. Every reason I had led to you, and I loved you so much I didn’t want you to hurt. That’s why I lied. If you didn’t know, you couldn’t stop me, and I couldn’t blame you the way I wanted to. You know I wanted that baby, you knew how much I love kids. But I wasn’t strong enough, I was selfish. I hurt too much. I thought couldn’t keep him/her.

The shitty thing is I will regret my decision every second, of everyday until I die. I keep telling myself I would’ve never been able to give he/she everything they deserved, but I’m just lying to myself. You asked how I felt when I came back; it wasn’t much but I am so glad you tried a little. Honest, I really am. The thing that destroyed me the most was one week, to the day, after my procedure we called Andréa (your hooker who you buy drugs from).

She had some friends with her, they partied with us. I was upstairs when you brought her up to your room. She went into the bathroom and you put your arms around me, and kissed me. I instantly had tears in my eyes. I said, “I can’t do this” you told me “don’t worry, there won’t be any insertion”.

I went downstairs and cried in the bathroom then went out to mark and the girls and numbed my pain with my chemicals. The next day when we woke up you said was weird at the end of the night, I seemed uncomfortable, you asked if I felt weird around the hookers, didn’t it remind me of the old days? You the fuck did I ever do to you to deserve the way you treated me?

That was the first time you put your arms around me since my procedure, do you know that? I remember reading a book on coping next to you, I was crying. When you shut off the light you heard me set the book down and said, “I didn’t realize you were awake.” I needed you more than anything at that point. It took 2 weeks and you asking me to never speak to you 3 times before you hugged me and said “it was sad”, that’s it.

You were partying more, your moods were worse than ever. You wanted me out of your life completely. That was it. You left me when I had nothing.

I have never felt the pain I had inside ever in my life, and it scared me to death. And you just kept ignoring me, doing more drugs. You lashed out when you found out I was coming back to work. I was trash, a whore; I was a waste of your time. I’m just a 21-year-old girl trying to get my life back, and it’s going to take a long time. I was afraid to talk about anything after you threatened to retaliate if I did. You told me I was crazy and I made things up. I wish I were.

There have been nights I go to bed hoping I won’t wake up. Everyday is harder than the last. Keeping quiet has caused the pain to become unbearable. I’m not ok, but I will be. Because if am not, you win. And you have had a hold of me too long. You know, all I asked for was an apology, you cut me out of your life completely instead. But the hard part is that I will never hear the words I’m sorry come out of your mouth. I don’t hate you.

I hope one day you see how amazing you are underneath it all and can love yourself instead of sabotaging yourself. That’s the worst pain, seeing you destroy yourself. You can’t see how much it hurts those around you even when they are screaming in front of you with tears streaming down their cheeks. It’s been months and things have only become worse. I’m glad you’ve numbed the pain that I have to feel every goddamn day.

 

Woman Sues Porn Company After Unknowingly Giving Her Brother A Blowjob

Anonymous sex through a hole in the wall should be a risk-free endeavor, but leave it to sneaky porn producers to ruin one of America’s favorite pastimes.

When siblings and professional porn actors Madeline Madison and Chuck Tang reportedly booked a gig with Come-And-Go Productions titled “Milk Maids 2,” neither of them expected to run into each other on set.

While I am not familiar with the previous “Milk Maids” film, there seemed to be nothing about the original that suggested Madison would be unwittingly performing fellatio on Tang through a glory hole, which is perhaps why the actress was so willing.

In an interview, Madison allegedly claimed,

The producers wouldn’t let me meet the man I was sucking off beforehand, which I found odd, because normally we always meet and greet our scene partner. I like to make an emotional connection with my fellow actor before a scene. I even try to quickly fall in love with them, if I can, as it makes my job so much easier for me if I’m truly in love with the man I’m about ready to f*ck.

Despite the fact that there was supposedly no meet-and-fall-in-love for Madison on the set of “MM2,” the brother-lover insisted she had no idea the company would lead her unknowingly into an incestual scene.

She reportedly continued,

The company doesn’t show real incest with past titles, but with me and my little brother being known, they’ve now caught real incest on camera which will make them billions in Japan. The Japanese love incest.

Madison allegedly said this one day of work affected her entire existence, explaining,

I only got $100 dollars for my scene and I’m going to suffer a lifetime of emotional distress requiring costly psychological and psychiatric help. I’ve even lost my sobriety. I’m eventually gonna need to pay for rehab, in a couple years. I can’t even look my brother in the eye. My life is ruined.

According to Come-And-Go, Madison, who is seeking $3.2 million and a Corvette in the lawsuit she launched, was fully aware of the nature of the scene before agreeing to the job.

Director Jameel Mendoza supposedly insisted,

She’s a liar. [She] will do anything for money. We normally would have paid a third-rate talent like her $25 for a single glory hole scene, but we agreed to $100 because it was with her brother. Let’s not forget this is the same girl who allowed herself to be penetrated by the head of a dead Anaconda in Snake Hole. She has no moral standards.

As for Tang, he will not be jumping onboard the lawsuit train.

The actor reportedly said,

I feel bad Maddy’s so upset about this, but it doesn’t bother me. Just another blowjob. Hell, I’d probably f*ck her too if I could wear a blindfold. At the end of the day, pussy is pussy.

Well put, Chuck Tang. Family time is family time no matter how you slice it.

Update: This story although reported on a legitimate news site, turns out to be fake.  Total and complete made up bullshit.

It’s agent shaming time!

I found this great post today on Facebook.

I don’t know who this agent is talking about – of course I have my suspicions but I can’t say for sure. I did however think I should share this with you. Clearly it needs to be said to more than  a few people in our industry working with talent.


Dear Agents,

How dare you, as a so called grown man and woman, treat your girls the way you do. It truly bothers me as a Human to talk to so many girls each day and hear the same stories over and over again about the same 7 Agents.

Hearing girls being put out on the street cause they don’t have the money for the model house you put them in but yet you have not sent them on there go sees or booked them work in 3 weeks. Booking Escorting work for your girls are you a Pimp or an Agent pick one both just don’t work.

Booking your brand new 19 year old talent her first shoot and its an Anal shoot. Girls are sitting in the model house with no money for Cigarettes, Food, Water, Tampons and so on cause you cant book them work. Even 1 shoot a week would help.

Its not hard i do it all the time but maybe i just put the real time and effort it takes to run a business and help my girls. I take money out of my own pocket to make sure my girls have food and what they need to be happy.

There’s so much more i want to say but I’m gonna end my vent today with saying taking your license and shove it deep up your asses because it’s worth shit if you’re not doing 100% of what an Agent should be doing!

Remember you work for the talent they don’t work for you.

Ladies if you’re facing any of these issues please call me or message me right away and i will help you.

Only July 8th Porno Dan tweeted a message about Kagney Linn Karter being live on his website.

“Thank you Kagney Linn Karter for an awesome show You aee the best bunny!”

He then posted three pictures he said was her.  I couldn’t believe these pics were actually of her. She doesn’t look anything like she used to.

We Learn How Audrey Hollander Does America

Last week porn legend Audrey Hollander announced her latest project called Audrey Does America. Basically she’s crowd funding the money she needs to travel across the US and have sex.

AudreyDoesAmerica

In exchange for her fans helping her fund her next movie Audrey is offering a variety of perks from an advance copy of the movie to the ability to help write the script. Some fans will get to pick the locations and who she will perfect with as well as what she’ll wear, down to what kind of toys she’ll be playing with. You can see more about her project AUDREY DOES AMERICA at her indiegogo project page at https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/audrey-hollander-does-america/x/11048316#/story

We decided to sit down with Audrey Hollander and talk to her about the project.

Where did you get the idea for this project?

My friend Kelli was working on a book with Gemma Massey, where she comes to America and falls in love with this fictional politically powerful family.

She did a mock up book cover and I was like OMG I LOVE IT and the idea was just sparked. Audrey Does America where I travel across the US having sex in various cities.

Have you picked which cities you’ll be traveling to you?

No. That’s part of what I want those who help me fund the movie to do. I want them to get a direct say in which cities I’ll visit and who and what I’ll be doing while I’m there. Some cities I have in mind right now are Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Houston. The rest though is really up to the fans.

When will the movie be available?

If all goes as planned we’ll start filming at the end of the summer and through the fall. That means the finish project should be available around Valentine’s day 2016.

Will you be doing anal?

As if I could do a movie and not do anal! Are you crazy? What fun would an all Audrey Hollander movie be with no anal? Right now I have a few ideas for scenes in mind. I was thinking we would start the movie with an all girl orgy and end with a bang, as in a 5 guy gang bang! Everything in between is still being decided on.

Have you ever thought about letting any of your fans appear in the movie with you?

Of course. In fact if you check out the perks of my crowd funding campaign at Indiegogo you’ll see there are two ways fans can do that. First is as an extra (non sex role) and then of course for the really devoted fan, there is the chance to actually star in a scene with me as my co-star (actual sex role). Just remember they must be over 18, be fully tested and have two forms of valid ID. It’s the law after all!

Who will be directing the movie?

I don’t know yet. I’ve talked with a few different people so far but to be honest I haven’t made my final selection as of yet.

Any porn stars you have in mind that you would like to star with you?

i am thinking Bonnie Rotten, Riley Reid, Alexis Texas, Nick Manning, James Deen. I don’t know those are just some of the names I’ve been throwing around in my mind. I guess in the end it’s really up to who the fans want to see me having sex with.

If you want to decide where and who Audrey bangs when she tours America be sure and head over to her fundraising page and see what you can do to help make her project a reality!

 

 

 

 

Is your publicist falling short? Quite possibly

Is PR Dropping the Ball? Majority of Reporters Say They Are Unhappy with Press Materials and Lack of Quality Content for Stories

 

Journalists Are Likely to Ignore a Pitch that Contains No Graphics

According to a recent survey, an overwhelming number of journalists and media professionals are unhappy with how they are approached by corporate communications, resulting in working longer hours and increased frustration. The survey, conducted by content distribution and tracking platform ISEBOX.com, revealed that journalists are having to work harder and produce more in order to make a living—but their needs are not being met by most PR professionals or technology solutions.

According to the newly released survey of North American journalists and media professionals, 68% of journalists feel that their job has become more difficult in the last 5 years—which is in stark contrast to the recent technology advancements that were intended to accelerate workflows. Of these new technologies, few have been developed to facilitate mass distribution of content in a way that is easily accessible and centralized for media professionals—resulting in scattered and often inaccessible story-related content.

In spite of these obstacles, survey results show that 52% of journalists are producing at least 5 articles per week, with almost 20% producing over 11 articles per week. Of the articles published, 75% include multimedia content. Of the more than 20 pitches the majority of journalists receive each week, most do not include multimedia content, resulting in journalists spending additional time to track it down themselves.

“There seems to be a major gap between what reporters need, and how corporate communications are providing these needs,” said Salvatore Salpietro, CTO of ISEBOX.com, in a news release. “There is increasing pressure to gain earned media coverage by corporate communications and public relations teams, yet they are still making the process very difficult for media to access content and put together a story by using things like FTP, email, locked-down websites and manual requests—all of these are enthusiasm-killers.”

Regarding delivery of multimedia content to journalists, the most popular method is still via email, in spite of commonplace restrictions on file size attachments, followed by Dropbox and actual physical mailing of digital media, such as USB keys and hard drives. When gathering and collecting content, 80% of reporters expressed frustration in needing to spend more than 30 minutes doing so. Nonetheless, 80% of journalists feel including photos, infographics or video is very important to creating effective and engaging content.

“If a pitch doesn’t contain graphics I can include with my article, it’s hard for me to take it on. Even better if there is a video. I am under strict deadlines to produce at least 5-7 articles a day, and visual content is always required. Wasting hours sourcing and editing a company’s logo or media content to accompany a post is something I literally cannot afford.
