Rising Star PR Press Release: Melina Mason Signs With Rising Star PR

leave a comment »

VENICE, CA – When your teachers in high school are telling you that you should be in porn, maybe they have noticed a pattern in your interests and are telling you something you need to listen to. We don’t know how good a listener Melina Mason was in school, but she took that advice to heart and now she is a starlet on the rise in the adult industry.

Growing up in Long Island, NY, which she calls mostly boring, she did find ways to fill her time.

“I’m capitalizing on a combination of my strengths and weaknesses,” she told interviewer Leonardo Blues this week. “I’m a pretty girl without any shame and a sex drive that always got me into trouble. Even my teachers in high school said I should go into porn. It’s just who I’ve always been.”

By signing on with Rising Star PR she has made it clear that she wants to be taken seriously in her chosen career. She’s seeing results already, with a fantastic and meaty interview on the XXX Wasteland site this week(

With her dark beauty and busty figure (34F-24-36), she was an immediate hit in Porn Valley. Producers, directors and performers were clamoring to work with her. Until recently she held out on the guys, doing only girl/girl work. She has now broken the seal and is slowly increasing her list of things she’ll do.

Rising Star PR Press Release: Christie Stevens Signs With Rising Star PR

leave a comment »

VENICE, CA – It was as simple as a Google search. Last year Christie Stevens typed “porn agencies” into the search engine and you don’t have to fast-forward very far before she debuted in November of last year and over the past few months she has put her energy toward turning herself into what she’s wanted to be: a porn star.

With classic porn star looks—blonde, beautiful and busty—she certainly has what it takes physically. A look at her early scenes and it’s obvious she has what it takes in front of the camera, too. That something special that you can’t put your finger on, but you want so desperately to put your finger in.

Now that she has a few scenes under her garter belt Christie knew it was time to start promoting herself rather than risk getting lost in the endless shuffle of Porn Valley. She’s hired Rising Star PR to handle her publicity, will be attending Exxxotica in Chicago next month and has a rapidly-filling schedule of companies booking her for the steamy shoots she’s becoming known for.

Christie measures up at 34D-26-34 and is doing various types of scenes with men and women. The college grad has worked for Digital Playground, Jules Jordan Video, Third Degree, Penthouse, Naughty America, Brazzers and others.

XXX Wasteland Exclusive Interview: Melina Mason

with 24 comments

Beautiful and personable adult starlet Melina Mason has swiftly ascended the ranks of XXX since her industry debut in 2009. The brunette performer’s charming personality and enthusiasm for the adult business have won her scores of fans and solid acclaim from those within erotic entertainment.

Melina recently began performing in boy/girl scenes after remaining a girl/girl talent for most of her career and has already plied her new trade with a number of industry powerhouses, including Evil Angel, Jules Jordan and Brazzers.

Melina kindly spoke with XXX Wasteland to discuss her entry into adult following a stint with the Suicide Girls website, the passion she has for her chosen profession, appearing on an episode of The Jerry Springer Show last year, her plans and aspirations for the future and more.

You can visit Melina online at her official website, (which she hopes to re-launch in the near future) and official Tumblr account, as well as follow her on Twitter under the handle @Melina_Mason. Melina’s FreeOnes page is available for viewing here.

Melina Mason is represented by L.A. Direct Models. For booking inquiries, please contact Interview and media requests may be directed to Rising Star PR.

(Special thanks to Acme Andersson of Rising Star PR)

Let’s start at the beginning: Can you tell us how you entered the adult industry?

I started in adult in 2009; I was a Suicide Girl. That’s basically an alternative nude model – it’s like the Playboy of the alt scene.

I was on a photo shoot one day and there was a porn girl there. She was like, “Oh, you know, do you want to get into porn?” And I was like, “Yes!” (Laughs) She called her agent – who is my current agent – and they signed me that day. I’ve just been working in porn ever since and haven’t looked back.

That’s pretty cool. I’m familiar with the Suicide Girls and that’s a really cool website.

Yeah, it was cool. It was definitely a big part of my life, but they dropped me as a Suicide Girl when they found out I started doing porn because it was against their contract.

So you were doing both for a little while?

Yeah. They found out very quickly. (Laughs)

So you have enjoyed your time in the adult industry so far?

Oh, it’s been incredible. I just mean everything: the sex, the traveling, the money – everything about porn I love. So, it’s like every day I’m living my dream and I’m only 22. So, that’s pretty cool.

Yeah, for sure. Who have been some of your favorite studios and performers to work with?

You know, I’ve never had a bad scene. I’ve never worked with someone who didn’t become a favorite performer. But I definitely have favorite companies. I love shooting for Brazzers. I love shooting for Naughty America, I work for them a lot. I love Penthouse. Those are my top favorites. And Jules Jordan – I love shooting for Jules Jordan.

Are there any performers or studios you haven’t had the opportunity to work with yet, but would like to in the near future?

Oh, yeah. I would definitely like to work for Digital Playground, Vivid and Wicked. Those are my top three.

How about overall goals and aspirations for your career? Do you have anything specific in mind that you wish to accomplish?

Oh, definitely. I really want to become a Penthouse Pet. I would love to get nominated for Best New Starlet this year at AVN. I want to eventually direct. I’d like to write scripts and stuff. I’m just all over the place. I want to get behind the camera, I want to learn photography. I want to be in every aspect of adult. I feel like things are very one-sided for me right now in that I’m only performing and I just feel like to understand the industry better, I have to do more jobs. So, I want to be more well-rounded.

Now that you have a few years of experience in adult to your credit, is there maybe one misconception in general about the industry that you wish you could dispel?

I feel like there are so many. (Laughs) I just feel like people see us as dirty or unclean, but most people in porn only fuck other people in porn. We’re clean, we get tested. And we’re safer than most people. Anything about that – just our safety – I just hate how people don’t understand how seriously we take our safety and protection.

I understand that you appeared on an episode of Jerry Springer last year, is that right?

Ha, ha! Yeah, I did.

Can you tell us about that?

The whole experience was pretty funny. But it was nice – they sent a limo to my house, drove me to the studio and put me up in a hotel overnight. We just hung out. And the next day on the show, they had me as an audience member plant and had me go into a hot tub and make out with some other chicks and stuff. It was funny.

And how did that come about?

My agent called me and said, “Do you want to be on the Jerry Springer Show?” And I was like, “Sure.” It was something to do. (Laughs)

(Laughs) Yeah, absolutely. May I ask a few questions about yourself as a person?


Great. Can you tell us a little bit about where you were raised and how you would describe yourself growing up?

I was born in New York, raised there as well. A pretty small town in New York – on Long Island, actually.

I’ve always been a very sexual person. I started having sex when I was like six. (Laughs) So, I’ve always been very sexually motivated.

In high school, I was … I don’t know … weird. (Laughs) I couldn’t wait to get out of there. There’s not much else to say. (Laughs) I was just very awkward, very horny. I was having all this sex and people were hating on me for it. I’m like, “Why are you getting pissed? I just had sex with you. Go back to your girlfriend and leave me alone.” (Laughs)

I didn’t quite fit in with any particular group. I just sort of drifted around from group to group of friends.

How about interests and hobbies away from work?

Oh, I am so bad with hobbies. Every time I get a new hobby, it’s to the max until I learn everything I think I need to know and then I drop it. I used to play the piano, guitar, viola. I used to paint and draw. I used to write poetry. I was writing a book at one point. I just learn as much as I want to know and then I’m like, “I don’t need this anymore.” So, I’m currently on the hunt for a new hobby.

You mentioned writing a book. Was it your own life story or more of a fiction-type book?

It was going to be a mix of fiction and non-fiction. It’s about something unrelated to the adult industry, actually. But I started writing it and it got kind of painful, so I just stopped. But it’s whatever. (Laughs) On to the next, you know?

Yeah. How about favorites – T.V. show, movie, musical artists and things like that?

For T.V., I love this show called Thirty Rock. It’s so funny.

I have three favorite movies: Scarface, Goodfellas and Casino. Those are my top three.

(Musicians) is super hard because there’s so many. But I guess I’ll go with a classic answer and give you 2Pac and Biggie. I listen to 2Pac and Biggie like every single day. (Laughs)

When I was reading up about you for the interview, I came across a photo you posted of three books that you said had impacted your life.

Oh, you found that? That’s crazy! (Laughs)

(Laughs) Yeah. One of them was The Satanic Bible by Anton LaVey.

Ah, yes – The Satanic Bible. That’s a great read. It’s not as bad as you think. It’s not about worshipping Satan as a being, it’s more of just a philosophy.

Yeah. Actually, the reason I wanted to ask is because I’m very familiar with it.

Oh, are you?

I like to study different religions and things like that.

Yeah, me too.

I was just wondering if you considered yourself a LaVeyan Satanist.

It’s not something I really want to touch on, but I will say the book has guided me as far as how to treat people and how to react to certain situations. That guide is very loosely based on my own personal morals, I will say that about the book.

I just thought that was pretty neat. It’s not something everybody names as an influence.

(Laughs) Right – The Prophet, The Satanic Bible and The Richest Man in Babylon, I think, were my three favorite books.

You were right in saying that a lot of people have a misconstrued view of what true Satanism is.

Oh, the misconception is so extreme. People are like, “Don’t they sacrifice babies?” (Laughs) No. No. That’s separate, individual cliques. There are all different types of Satanism, just like there are Catholic people, Christian people – everyone believes in something different.

Yeah. If I recall correctly, most members of the actual Satanic Church despise self-proclaimed Satanists who perform sacrificial rituals and things like that.

Yeah, they do. Do you still have to pay for the membership?

I think you do. Last I heard, yeah.

I think it’s only like five hundred bucks or something (Note: I did some reading up afterward and learned the current fee is two hundred dollars). (Laughs) Anyway, let’s change the topic because I don’t want to get too much into Satanism on my porn interview! (Laughs)

(Laughs) No problem.


Is there one thing about yourself that you feel would surprise most people?

I’m sure there are lots of surprising things about me. (Laughs)

I don’t know … I have this weird habit: when I go to restaurants, I always ask for another chair so I can put my purse on it. But I don’t know if that’s surprising or if that’s just weird. The only things surprising about me people probably shouldn’t know. (Laughs)

(Laughs) Are there any current or upcoming projects in the works that you would like to mention?

Yeah, actually. I just shot a new movie for Jules Jordan, it’s an anal scene. We did a lot of anal, so that’s good. (Laughs) So, that’s coming out soon. I have another movie for Jules coming out this week, actually, called Hardcore Allure.

I’ll be in Chicago signing for Exxxotica next month. I have another movie for Evil Angel coming out called Anal Lessons. All butt stuff lately. And I have a couple dozen unreleased scenes that are all coming out within the next couple of weeks.

So, I have a lot going on: traveling a lot, focusing on re-launching my website. I have a lot going on, but it’s all good things.

Terrific. To finish up, is there anything else you wish to say to readers?

Well, I just hope they find it interesting and that they don’t think I’m just another chick doing porn. (Laughs)

Thanks very much, I appreciate you taking some time out to speak with me today. It’s good to hear that you are happy in the industry and I wish you the best.

Thank you! If you ever want to talk more about Satanism, just give me a call, alright?

(Laughs) Absolutely.

(Laughs) Bye-bye.

RTM Press Release: Nadya Suleman and jessica drake Promote “Octomom Home Alone” From Coast to Coast

leave a comment »

Los Angeles, Calif. / New York, New York – (June 26, 2012) – In her recent radio hit New York, Grammy Winner Alicia Keys celebrates the iconic “Big Apple” for being “famous as a place for movie scenes.” Well, the “Capitol of the World” received a double dose of Hollywood style this past week as Nadya Suleman and Wicked Girl™ jessica drake descended upon Manhattan for a promotional blitz that saw them visiting such top-rated programs as The Howard Stern Show and ABC’s The View. The ladies took to the airwaves to promote the June 20th online premiere of Ms. Suleman’s Brad Armstrong-directed self-pleasure film Octomom Home Alone. And the PR juggernaut has continued in LA, with the ladies appearing on HLN’s Dr. Drew. Today will see Nadya joining Ms. drake on her on own Playboy radio show, In BED with jessica drake.

Of the ladies’ time on The Howard Stern Show, jessica enthuses, “Howard Stern was the perfect host – he already knew a lot about me and my career as an emerging sex educator. I gave my first interview on coaching Nadya on set and helped her ride the infamous Sybian. The show generated so much interest that the website kept crashing! My personal highlight of the show was when Howard dubbed me ‘the Vagina Whisperer!’

Two illustrated features based on the ladies’ appearance on the show – Octomom Rides the Sybian and jessica drake, Porn Star and Masturbation Coach – have been posted at

Thursday June 21st found the ladies once again in the mainstream media spotlight as they visited the set of ABC’s top-rated talk show The View. “I was initially apprehensive, but meeting the ladies of the show put both Nadya and I at ease,” reveals jessica. “Sherri Shepard and Whoopi Goldberg were so friendly, and Elizabeth Hasselbeck was a very calming presence for Nadya. As I sat in the front row, I noticed how supportive the audience was, and all of my apprehension melted away as Nadya began one of her best interviews yet. Personally, I am pleased to have been a part of the experience – and meeting Whoopi Goldberg backstage was a moment I’ll never forget!”

The ladies are now back in Los Angeles, where they taped their Dr. Drew segment. “I found Dr. Drew to be a caring and compassionate person,” jessica says of the lively taping. “It’s obvious that he truly cares about Nadya and her family. Nadya handled herself beautifully and it was a great opportunity to dispel some of the myths and misconceptions people have about the adult industry.” Today will see Nadya joining jessica on her own Playboy Radio Show, In BED with jessica drake at 2:00 pm on Sirius 102. A limited number of callers will be able to speak to Ms. Suleman directly by calling (877) 205-9796.

A collection of explicit vignettes focusing on solo masturbation, Brad Armstrong’s stylish production features Ms. Suleman in a variety of erotic scenarios, with each taking playful aim at different aspects of the media-established “Octomom” persona. For Ms. Suleman, creating the video was ultimately a voyage of self-discovery. “I’m a more sexual being for having done this,” she says of making the film. “It’s the most powerful and most liberating thing I’ve ever done.”

For her part, jessica is happy to speak to Ms. Suleman’s message of self-empowerment. “Being a part of Nadya’s tour to promote Octomom Home Alone was really wonderful. I’m impressed with her growing confidence during interviews, and from The Howard Stern Show to The View, she was very well received and treated with the utmost respect. I think that Brad Armstrong and Nadya both did a great job on this project, and people will be amazed when they see this side of her!”

Scenes from Octomom Home Alone can be viewed on A deluxe DVD release is slated for July 2012. For more publicity information, please contact Daniel M at / (818) 266-7910.
