Catching up part 2

After my post of 8 things you may not now about me, the Clever Fool asked me to elaborate on number 8 - Some of the nicest people I know work in porn. Some of the scariest as well.

Well this is LA. One night, drunk off my ass and getting more drinks at the bar I turned around and literally ran into a guy in a white tank undershirt (much like the shirt in this blurry photo of him), spilling some of my precious vodka cranberry on him and his shirt. “Hey, you almost ruined my shirt,” he smiled as he said it. I’m so sorry, I can see it’s designer and if you'd like I can give you $5 to go buy another. Yes, drunk and bitchy at a gay bar, imagine. He told me only his friends were allowed to mock his poor taste in cheap clothing.

A bit later, my friend and I stumbled closer to him and his group of friends. He looked up and pointed me out, "That's the guy that made fun of my shirt." His friends applauded and invited me over to meet them. That's when I discovered one of his friends was a photographer and he worked with my boyfriend. We were now close enough to mock him in person. I asked him what he did for a living, and he told me, “I’m Matt Bradshaw.” Uh, that’s a nice name, but what do you do for a living? “I’m Matt Bradshaw. That’s what I do for a living.” Turns out he was a porn actor. His real name was revealed and also that he cuts hair as his day job. Over the course of the next year I’d see him out, at parties and even met up with him out one night to show my out of town friends what a variety of interesting people I knew in LA. After living in LA for about 6 years, I have to say he was one of the most genuine and honest people I had come to know. Once I stopped drinking every and going out every night (I still drink, I still go out, just not EVERY NIGHT) we didn’t see each other nearly as much.
Me and Miss Kaylani share an intimate moment...

In another incarnation, I have been a wardrobe stylist. One off shoot of being a wardrobe stylist is the interesting people you get to work with. For instance dressing porn actresses. And of the 8 -12 I have met and dressed consistently, I keep about 4 in my cell phone and manage to see them at least twice a year. VERY interesting perspectives on life can be gleaned from this group. Let me gratuitously drop a few names to increase strange traffic to this site from search engines, Kaylani Lei, Stormy Daniels, Sydnee Steele. No, I have not dressed Jenna Jameson. Yes, I have met her once. But it was no big deal. Well, not to me.

Miss Stormy Daniels just won "Best Breast" at the F.A.M.E. awards...
I have no idea how


Have you noticed that in the last few posts all my shirts in the photos are so bright and bold? What's up with that? I swear my usual uniform is a white v-neck T-shirt. That's what I am wearing right now. That is my default. I guess I knew I was getting a few of those photos so I may have reached about in the closet for something a tad more glamour...

Ha! I love that cutting remark to Mr. Bradshaw....silly me, when you mentioned 'porn' I assumed g-a-y...

I ran into Matthew Rush at the Abbey last summer & nearly creamed myself! (he's huge)...that's my porn claim to fame.

As fabulous as they are, they're better for having known you.
