Apparently the rumor that Brett Rossi is leaving her Manwin life behind her has some truth to it. She has begun the process of taking over her brand and has recently announced that her official website will now be a part of the PUBA network.
“There has been a lot of speculation and rumors as to what is next for my career since my contract ended with Twistys back in July,” says Brett. “I am happy to announce that I am joining Puba and will continue to work hard to provide content my fans can enjoy. I am not with an agent nor do I plan to go back to having an agent. Also, as of right now I’m not contracted with any other company. Will that change in the future? I don’t know but right now, my primary focus is to keep myself exclusive. I plan on only shooting for my site and providing my fans with the content they have been asking for. I want to show everyone a different side of me; a side they have never seen. “
PUBA has gotten a lot of heat in the past for their questionable marketing tactics. Some say they are more interested in promoting the PUBA brand, using the girls who are a part of their network, than they are furthering the girls best interest.
Case in point, last year it was revealed that PUBA arranged for all the girls in their network to do content trades with each other. That way each of the sites can have a bunch of new content and it doesn’t cost as much. Sounds fair, right? Each girl got a copy of the content in question and it went up on their site. Only if you read the fine print you also seen that PUBA also got a copy of the content, to release on DVD, of which the girls would never be paid for. How nice is that?
When confronted about the practice they said it was “standard industry practice”.
Rumor has it that in the last year or so they have begun to clean up their act and stop pushing the promotion of PUBA on the girls website and instead just letting the girls brand be the one promoted. I’m not sure if that is true, but I did check out Asa Akira’s website who is in the PUBA network and found not a single mention of the PUBA brand, other than on the BONUS page. Previously that wasn’t the case. So it does look like they are making an effort to clean up their act in that aspect.
But we can’t say they are totally in the clear.
I got a press release about Christy Mack and talking about a movie she was in for the Porn Star Empire called I Love Christy Mack. And you know the only thing in the “about” section? About PUBA. There was no about Christy Mack. There was no about porn star empire and that was what the whole press release was about. It had -nothing- whatsoever to do with Puba.
They didn’t mention PUBA in the entire press release which had NOTHING to do with them. They did mention Christy Macks official website in the body but again that had nothing to do with the PUBA brand. That was a press release talking about the girl Christy mack who did a movie for another company (not puba). So it looks like they are still using the girls in their network to further their own brand.
That’s just fucked up.
And it’s always why I say if you are a porn star you need to be with one of two networks only – Vicky Vette or Nina Meredez. They are there to promote you and your brand, not themselves. They are porn stars and they know what it’s like.
But that’s another argument for another day. For now let’s just end this shit saying good job whoever is advising Brett Rossi.
Clearly you are doing a bang up job.
