Kacey Jordan, Charlie Sheen Porn, Prostitution and Pushers

How does a girl virtually unknown, go from zero to hooker hero? - Wasn’t Kacey Jordan the same young lady who on 01/13/2011 said on her twitter page and promptly deleted it but the screen grab still exists in cyberland...

And take a look at this from Will Ryder dated:

Blog from Vegas - sent Via Blackberry
Written by Will Ryder
Sometimes life is funny but not in an entertaining way. We had a great time in Vegas but I find myself right back in Sin City for an unscheduled visit. It turns out a dear friend of mine was a bit depressed and wrote on Twitter she was killing herself. Upon release from the hospital she was left alone in a hotel room so I dropped everything and flew back to make sure she is OK. She is for now but I marvel at the young because the older you get you realize problems are only temporary. I wish I could wave a magic wand for her but I cannot so the best is a shoulder to cry on and some old jokes and a few word of love. I do really have love for this girl and I guess that is what I have to offer. I am 50 and she is a 22 year old beauty but sometimes you do what you can and this is that time. I hope somebody cares for me if I ever need it but moments like this make me appreciate what I have and I am happy I can make a difference in somebody's life especially when they are too young to ever go away like that. Maybe some think I am nuts to fly out here but to me there was never an option. After all I am the former AVN Director of the Year and one of my actresses needed me and maybe in some strange way I needed her too. Life is complicated but she is sleeping like an angel now and that is how I prefer things to be.

And look at this link from, Luke talks about how after reading Kacey Jordan’s tweet that many fans were concerned and called the Vegas Police & the hotel security to check on Kacey. Via Jordan’s twitter page fans found out that she was in the hospital and safe.
Also from Will Ryder’s blog dated Tuesday, 11 January 2011 01:06
From the Penthouse to the Outhouse
Written by Will Ryder “The strangest sensation for me was being able to get out of the theater basically untouched by the media. I didn’t get requests for many media interviews on my way out but my porn starlet date Kacey Jordan certainly was asked to pause to take all kinds of photos especially those with her dress raised over ass”
Does Ryder sound jealous or envious of Jordan’s popularity? Interesting that his post is written two days before Jordan’s breakdown and allege suicide attempt. Besides being his date for the recent AVN Awards, was Kayce Jordan and Will Ryder also lovers? Ryder pimps Kacey Jordan.
Fast forward to this past week, Charlie Sheen on hiatus from Two & 1/2 Men decides that he wants some companionship and invites Kayce Jordan and Melanie Rios among others to his $8 million dollar home. According to Jordan, booze and blow followed. Let's summarize, Will Ryder is connected intimately with Kayce Jordan, Sheen has an addiction with porn. Could it be that Sheen is an associate with Will Ryder? Bree Olson stars in Ryder's Bionic Women XXX. Bree hooked up with Charlie in Vegas during the AVNs. All four were in Vegas during that weekend.
Will Ryder is a successful porn director who specializes in sitcom parodies. Sheen is a sitcom star. On Feb. 15th, Will Ryder will release ‘Not Charlie Sheen's Wives XXX', a DVD with many of Sheen's favorite porn stars such as Bree Olsen, Kayce Jordan, Michelle Bombshell McGee and Capri Anderson to name a few. So was this coke and mirror game all about raising Sheen's star meter with negative publicity while raising the media coverage of a little known porn star who has a history of alcohol abuse named Kayce Jordan? Now Kacey Jordan is on magazine covers all over the world. She is being interviewed from here to Germany to Finland. She proudly gave out incriminating details (the coke) and evidence (the $30,000 check from Charlie Sheen) to the media. More important news such as the upheaval in Egypt and the economic situation in the United States are being swept under the rug as Kacey Jordan becomes the latest flavor of the minute. Meanwhile, Charlie Sheen, Will Ryder, Kayce Jordan and the others involved in this charade are laying the groundwork for a buying frenzy for anything related to this torrid scandal. In our psyche when the majority are in poverty and suffering, when someone can be grossly rich and gluttonous in sexual depravity, it makes makes the masses envious at the same time disgusted. It will be interesting to see what happens to Kayce Jordan after the smoke from coke pipe story clears. As for Charlie Sheen, if he doesn't learn from being outed by a porn star who cashed his check and then tells world that he was a Zombie with rotten teeth from abusing so much of gutter glitter and do it fluid then their is no hope for him in recovery. Meanwhile Porn is being pushed deeper and deeper into the mainstream via the exploitation of young people looking for a fast buck and willing to do anything to be famous regardless of cost to themselves or others.

The Death of Michael Jackson & The Prosecution of Dr. Conrad Murray

"All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances;"- from William Shakespeare's 'As You Like It'.
These are the people involved in the drama of Michael Jackson's death and as Kanye West likes to say, "Lets play the blame game."
There is the prosecution, the defense team for Dr. Conrad Murray under the leadership of J.Michael Flanagan, the long suffering matriarch of the Jacksons, Katherine and her son Jackie Jackson helping her to the car, The Justice for MJ group that attends religiously the court case and you have a representative of TMZ.
Covering stories is not easy. There is alot of waiting, dealing with the cold, getting up early or staying up late. Also sometimes there is a dead body right next to you which happened earlier in the morning on Tuesday before the court proceedings.

Comcast NBC Merger: The Death of The Peacock

Correct me if I'm wrong but back in the last century, it used to be against the law to have a monopoly in business. "The Sherman Antitrust Act, passed in 1890, declared that no person or business could monopolize trade or could combine or conspire with someone else to restrict trade" and
"In 1914, Congress passed two more laws designed to bolster the Sherman Antitrust Act: the Clayton Antitrust Act and the Federal Trade Commission Act. The Clayton Antitrust Act defined more clearly what constituted illegal restraint of trade. The act outlawed price discrimination that gave certain buyers an advantage over others; forbade agreements in which manufacturers sell only to dealers who agree not to sell a rival manufacturer's products; and prohibited some types of mergers and other acts that could decrease competition. The Federal Trade Commission Act established a government commission aimed at preventing unfair and anti-competitive business practices." via derived from U.S. Department of State.

With the merger of Comcast and NBC troubling issues arise regarding net neutrality, censorship of news information due to corporations and advertisers relationships as well as how information is sent and the speed.
Time will tell what kind of changes the cable company Comcast will impose on NBC and its effects. One thing that will end is the symbol of the Peacock as the main focal point on the company. According to reports, the Peacock will be replaced by NBCUniversal for the Corporate Logo and the peacock will be used for broadcast TV logos such as in the photo above.

Gnomeo & Juliet: Stars Shine at Hollywood Premiere

Matt Lucas of 'Little Britain', David Copperfield, Gavin, Kingston and Zuma Rossdale, Emily Blunt, James McAvoy, Patrick Stewart and Elton John (didn't get a clear shot unfortunately) all and more were out and about on the carpet for Disney's Gnoemo & Juliet.

Austin Visschedyk: Teenage Paparazzo Going To Be Big In Japan

I bumped into Austin who is great at what he does. He told me he wrecked his ride and was driving a rental because he was chasing a story and going too fast over a pot hole or a rail. Anyway, Austin Visschedyk also said that he was going to Japan for the screening of his documentary that Adrian Grenier directed called 'Teenage Paparazzo'. Austin was smoking a cigarette when I asked him about that he said, "Smoking isn't bad for you." I like Austin, he is a cocky kid but he is an excellent shooter. Sometimes when you have talent for something you outshine others in your wake and you create haters. However you are still driven to do what you do. I asked Austin awhile back if he was doing drugs. Teenagers are going to do what they do.Here is the video.

Tila Tequila Says She Sober While ExPal Kristian Otto Herzog Is In Play for Mel Gibson

According to a story running on Radar Online, Tila Tequila wants to change her last name to Wynn. Tila feels her old self is "dead". Tila Wynn also went on to say that she is getting help from her doctors to deal with the multiple drug/alcohol and psychological issues that she had/has.
Meanwhile her exPal and play bodyguard Kristian Otto Herzog has been subpoenaed by Mel Gibson's team of lawyers in his battle against his former lover and baby's mama Oksana Grigorieva. According to TMZ, Oksana now is no friend of her former "friend"/"confidante"/play bodyguard.
Herzog never signed a confidentiality contracting like most real body guards do when they work for professional clients. So with that major mistake, Oksana has left herself wide open for all communications between herself and Kristian Otto Herzog to be under the scrutiny of the court. The battle between Oksana and Mel Gibson almost seems never ending. Herzog claimed he had a relationship with Oksana. Meanwhile Oksana denies this. Interesting connection with Tila Tequila and Oksana is Herzog befriended them gave his services as a "bodyguard" for publicity and gathered information on both women, according to insiders who knew Herzog's mode of operation. He befriends celebrities, offers his services for free and then uses the information to sell to tabloids or to "whitemale" (as I like to say) them at a later time. Tila and Kristian had a falling out. No doubt Herzog knows a lot about Tila Wynn (Tequila). What will also be interesting is to see what will happened with the battle between Garry Sun and Tila case. Was it all a farce for media attention because Garry is involved with a TV pilot? Or was the stalemate real? The sad thing is it seems like at least 3 players got what they wanted in this more attention but at what cost?

Golden Voice Ted Williams Quits Rehab

One goes in and another goes out, Ted Williams according to reports has quit rehab much to the chagrin of Dr. Phil. Quitting drug and alcohol addiction after decades of using isn't easy even if fame, money and free rehab is thrown or given to him. Maybe Ted's past mistakes haunted him to the point he wanted to go back to the comfort of what he knew. Only Ted Williams knows. Time will tell what becomes of Williams the man with the golden voice...

Bruce Lee, Tony Jaa, Jet Li & Jackie Chan; Who Would Win A Fight?

With one of my favorite martial artists releasing Ong Bak 3 in the United States last week, Tony Jaa as well as Anne Hathaway being cast as the latest Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises, it was only natural to have Hollywood Spiderman and Venom give me their views on who would win a fight between Bruce Lee, Tony Jaa, Jet Li and Jackie Chan. Another coincidence is Spider-Man Reboot with the Social Network star Andrew Garfield has been shooting in Los Angeles.
