“I try to do something fun with her every day. I just consider myself to be especially blessed, and people who knock porn, well, it affords me to be with my daughter … [When she's old enough] I’ll tell her Mommy has a job that some people don’t approve of, but Mommy’s proud of it and it’s for adults … I wouldn’t encourage [her if she wants to go into the adult industry when she grows up.] It’s not because I would have a problem with what she was doing. My concern would be the way people would treat her. I just don’t want that for her. It’s a lot to shoulder when you decide to be in this business. For every fan I have, there are 10 people who really think I should be dead.”
– Stormy Daniels talks to the The Daily Beast about how porn stardom and motherhood co-mingle. You may remember Stormy as the adult actress who ran for Louisiana state Senate. Or the woman who was arrested for beating up her former husband back in 2009. Since all that hoopla died down, things have changed for Stormy. She found a new boyfriend, Glendon Crain, and the two started a family. What Stormy has to say on the subject is actually rather interesting. On the one hand, she’s not ashamed of her profession, but on the other, she understands how it might present difficulties for her daughter. I suggest you read the whole interview. There’s some other stuff she gets into about being scared that the other mothers will find out what she does for a living and punish her daughter for it. [The Daily Beast] [Photo credit: Penthouse]
It seems like only last week (it was) that adult film star Stormy Daniels was declaring her intention to run for a seat in the Louisiana state senate. This week, she broke the hearts of Politico writers looking for an excuse to write about porn and politically astute porn fans across the nation when she announced that she would not attempt to become the next senator of Louisiana. But why not? She lacks the funds to run, she says: “I am not running for the US Senate for the same reason that so many dedicated patriots do not run — I can’t afford it.” Daniels did offer a message of hope: “We will keep fighting so that one day the voices of the dishwashers, cashiers, bus drivers and porn stars will be heard just as loudly as those of the lawyer, the banker and the insurance company executive.” Amen.

It’s stormy weather for porn star Stormy Daniels. Back in February, Stormy announced that she wanted to run for Senate in Louisiana, against Republican David Vitter, who’s one of the dudes linked to the DC Madam. She’d gotten as far as forming an exploratory committee in May. But her plans have been derailed lately. It’s as if the universe is telling Stormy, “It’s better to give a BJ for adult entertainment than for a political favor!” Keep reading »
If a former actor can be elected Governor of California and a comedian can run for Senator in Minnesota, then why can’t a porn star run for a Senate seat in Louisiana? Stormy Daniels is a female porn star who is rumored to be challenging current Senator David Vitter for Louisiana’s Senate seat in 2010. Vitter made headlines in 2007 for being linked to the DC Madam. Although the GOP forgave Vitter’s indiscretion, the people of Louisiana may not have been so willing to overlook his flaw.
This year, an ad appeared on Craigslist seeking “a female in some aspect of the adult-entertainment industry” to run against Vitter. Perhaps someone out there wanted a porn star to run against Vitter to remind everyone of Vitter’s link to the scandal? Soon after, a website “drafting” porn actress Stormy Daniels to oppose Vitter popped up. Since then, Stormy seems to have gotten on board with the idea of running for office… Keep reading »
