Psst...wanna be a PORNSTAR...?

New Reality TV Show to Find Pornstar

LOS ANGELES (AP) - A new reality TV show asks the question: ``Can YOU Be a Pornstar?''

Mary Carey, the porn actress who ran for California governor in the recent recall election, is among the hosts, joining fellow adult-film stars Tabitha Stevens and Ginger Lynn.

Silhouette Productions announced plans Monday to shoot seven one-hour shows, with plans to start broadcasting on iN DEMAND Networks and other pay-per-view channels on Jan. 8.

A group of 28 women will compete for a one-year contract with a major adult video distributor and a cash prize of $100,000.

"It's going to be an R-rated version for pay-per-view,'' Silhouette Productions chief executive officer Harry Feingold told The Associated Press. "Obviously, there will be outtakes that will be hardcore,'' which will likely turn up on DVD release later.

"It's like `Paradise Hotel,' when they go behind the scenes. Everybody wants to know what's going on. Well, here you see it,'' he said, referring to the Fox network reality series about young people trying to seduce each other.

In each episode, four women arrive at a house in Los Angeles for photo shoots, interviews and "surprises,'' according to Silhouette. Viewers will help pick eight finalists for a 90-minute finale.

The statement promised "uninhibited nudity and sizzling sexuality,'' while the show's official Web site said it would feature "Real people having real sex!''

"Pay-per-view gives us the freedom to take reality television where it has never gone before,'' Feingold said. "The last stigma today for audiences isn't renting adult films, it's admitting it, and this series offers viewers a fun, behind-the-scenes look at the star-making process in a multi-billion dollar industry.''

He added that the show is designed "not just for men, but for wives and girlfriends who enjoy both reality TV and adult entertainment.''

I heard that Jenna Jameson turned down the opportunity to host this.

You don't really have to have an opportunity to be a pr0n star if you are a hot chick. Just decide to be one and you'll get parts.

If you are a hot looking chick, isn't it better to become a model or something like that so you are not stigmatized for the rest of your career?

This probably would've been a better show if it had been a mix of guys/girls.

Girls for the eye candy.

Guys for the drama.

From what i've heard/read, guys have it much harder [no pun intended] in the porn industry. Everything from impotence to MAINTAINING an erection.

Ok, a hot looking chick with a history of abuse

I'll never forget when I heard about Jenna Jameson being a guest on the Loveline radio show. She sent Dr. Drew flowers the next day just for listening to her.

Then of course Drew heard it from his wife after he got home with those flowers

You mean a porn star actually admitted being abused? I have seen countless porn stars on Howard Stern and not one of them have admitted to abuse. I always think it is funny since Dr. Drew always says that anyone that will perform in porn has been abused.

Howard often gets them to confess to being molested. And the ones who don't admit it are probably lying.

Well that is quite an assumption.

Out of the dozens of porn stars that have appeared on Stern, I have heard only a couple who admitted to past abuse.

Although I wouldn't agree with the lying part, Howard often does get porn stars to admit to some kind of abuse or bad family life as a child.

I'll never forget that one chick who admitted to getting raped by a football team at her high school. I believe that was the story. How awful was that?

Not as awful as the football players that have recently been raped by their football teams with pinecones and golf clubs.
