Porn Star Jenna Jameson's Big Endorsement

Tommaso Boddi/Getty Images(SAN FRANCISCO) -- Sipping champagne in the VIP lounge of San Francisco's Gold Club gentleman's lounge, former porn star Jenna Jameson said she was supporting Mitt Romney to win the White House in November.

"I'm very looking forward to a Republican being back in office," Jameson told a CBS San Francisco staffer. "When you're rich, you want a Republican in office."

But four years ago Jameson, who is estimated to have a net worth of $20 million, was singing the opposite tune.

"I look forward to another Democrat being in office," Jameson told PR.com, noting that Republicans "put their crosshairs on the adult industry."

Jameson said in the 2007 interview that she supported then-Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

"I love Hillary," Jameson said. "I think that in some ways she's pretty conservative for a Democrat, but I would love to have a woman in office."

'Octomom' to Perform Striptease

Paul Warner/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Sources close to Nadya Suleman, better known as the “Octomom,” have told TMZ that she has booked an appearance at T’s Lounge in West Palm Beach, Fla., where she will appear as a stripper for the first time. She is scheduled to appear July 11-15.

Sources report that although T Lounge acts are usually naked, Octomom will only appear topless and will not be performing lap dances. It is reported that she will be paid “thousands" of dollars for the appearance.

Suleman recently filmed her first solo pornographic video, due to be released this summer, and is reportedly feeling “sexually liberated” as a result.

The 36-year-old became known as “Octomom” when she gave birth to octuplets following fertility treatment in January 2009. She was already a mother to six children at the time.

"Octomom" Files for Bankruptcy

Paul Warner/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- The "Octomom's" difficult April ended on Monday with her filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in federal court, according to E! Online. But TMZ reports she is trying to turn her financial ship around -- by signing a deal to star in a movie for a porn company.

According to court documents, Nadya Suleman says she has less than $50,000 in assets and owes between $500,000 and $1 million to creditors including Amir Haddadin, the owner of her home; Orkin Pest Control; Kaiser Permanete; Verizon Wireless; Sylvan Learning Center; and others.

Earlier this year, Suleman -- who has 14 children, including octuplets born in 2009 -- revealed that she was accepting $2,000 per month in food stamps from the state of California.

Suleman's van was vandalized and she received a death threat during an incident at her California home on April 7. Last week, she was the subject of a child services investigation after her former hairdresser went public with photos that reportedly depicted her home as being filthy. Police subsequently determined that there was nothing unusual going on at the home and that Suleman's kids were safe.

Suleman is apparently now willing to cross a line she previously said she wouldn't: star in a porn movie, TMZ reported Tuesday morning. The gossip site says she's signed on to appear in a video for a company that was willing to pay, "a lot more than the $10,000 she made for [recently] posing topless." The film will be shot soon, and released by the summer.

Suleman had previously turned down a million dollar offer from porn giant Vivid to headline a movie for the company.

Disco Star Andrea True Dead at 68

Michael Ochs Archives/Getty Images(KINGSTON, N.Y.) -- Andrea Marie Truden, lead singer of the '70s disco act Andrea True Connection, died Nov. 7 in Kingston, N.Y., reports the Daily Freeman. She was 68. A cause of death was not released.  

Truden started her career as an adult film actress, appearing in some 60 hardcore porn films as Andrea True, but caught the disco wave with the 1976 smash hit "More More More," which reached #4 on the Billboard chart.

True returned to porn for a short time after she was unable to match the success of "More More More" -- her follow-up singles "What's Your Name What's Your Number" and "N.Y. You Got Me Dancing" were nowhere near as popular.  She later retreated from the spotlight completely.  

In 1999, the alt-rock group Len sampled "More More More" in their hit "Steal My Sunshine," briefly reviving interest in the singer.  The song is also currently being used in a TV ad for the cereal Honey Bunches of Oats.

Ex-Porn Star Reads to Elementary School Kids; District to Investigate

Steven Lawton/FilmMagic(COMPTON, Calif.) -- After receiving complaints about an ex-porn star visiting an elementary school, district officials are planning to meet with the agent who scheduled her appearance, and rethink the booking process.

Compton, Calif., school officials said they weren’t informed of her past work when they agreed to host her.

Sasha Grey, a former adult film actress who made her last porn film two years ago and has since moved to more mainstream acting roles, participated in the guest reading program at Emerson Elementary School in Compton, reading a book called Dog Breath to a group of students.

At first, the school denied she was ever there, telling TMZ that “the actress you indicated was not present.” Then TMZ found pictures of her reading to the students, and she tweeted that she spent the morning reading to first- and third-graders.

In a statement, the Compton Unified School District said the talent coordinator for the program listed Grey as an actress who had been on Entourage when she was proposed as a participant, and her previous experience in adult films wasn’t mentioned.

The school district said it will review the selection process for participants with a coordinator to avoid potentially controversial readers in the future.
