My heart goes out to the victims and families affected by the tragedy at the Boston Marathon yesterday.
Adult film actress Jennifer Marchant, 23, pleaded not guilty to second degree murder in the death of her 24-year-old boyfriend, Ralph Stone, the Tonawanda News reported on Feb. 7. When police and paramedics arrived, Stone was found bleeding in Marchant’s apartment with a single stab wound to his neck area. Ralph Stone was attended to by police and paramedics, but died a short time later.
Friends say Marchant worked as an adult film entertainer, making films as recently as a year ago. Using the stage name Scarlett Rouge, her Twitter account says Jennifer retired from adult films last year.

Friends say Jennifer Marchant often wrote about boyfriend Ralph Stone on Facebook. Stone was the father of a two-year-old daughter.
Wednesday night, North Tonawanda police responded to a domestic violence disturbance at Jennifer Marchant’s apartment at 580 Oliver Street in North Tonawanda. Police are not providing a motive at this time, but North Tonawanda police have spoken with Marchant. It is not clear if Marchant confessed to the stabbing of Ralph Stone or not.
During Jennifer Marchant’s arraignment in North Tonawanda City Court Thursday morning, she was remanded without bail, with a court date set for Feb. 11. Both Jennifer Marchant and Ralph Stone had a history of arrests.
Michelle Stone, Ralph’s mother, cannot believe that her son is dead. Michelle said that “to know him [Ralph] is to love him. He was just a fun-loving kid with a really big heart. He worshipped his daughter. She was premature and he was there all the time.”
Michelle Stone said that after a recent rough patch, Ralph was about to start a job at National Fuel and go to the University at Buffalo Law School. Ralph Stone’s mother admits the couple “had a few spats, but every relationship every relationship does. But as far as I know, they got along well. She came for Christmas. She seemed like a real nice girl.”
“Everything was turning around positive for him. We were very proud of him,” Ralph’s mother said.
LOS ANGELES (KTLA) — Porn star Ron Jeremy is in critical condition and is being treated for an aneurysm near his heart, TMZ reports.
jeremyThe 59-year-old’s manager, Mike Esterman, told the website that Jeremy drove himself to Cedars-Sinai on Tuesday afternoon after experiencing severe chest pain.
Doctors examined him and discovered the aneurysm.
Jeremy’s condition worsened and he was transferred to the ICU. He’s being prepped to undergo surgery, according to TMZ.
Jeremy has appeared in more than 2,000 X-rated movies.
He was ranked by Adult Video News at number one in their “The 50 Top Porn Stars of All Time” list.
A friend of mine who also used to perform and I were recently discussing this. Back when I was in the industry the average shelf life for a performer was about 18 months. Now with so many more girls combined with less companies shooting shelf life is down to about 4 to 6 months.
They do not want to build you up to be a big star. They would rather have you be a random girl on the internet or a small name on a DVD box if you’re lucky. No, you will not be the next Sasha Grey.
You will not go onto the feature dance circuit and for 2 reasons. The first going back to the fact being that your name will never be big enough, second being that not as many clubs are doing this with the economy being bad, or they are paying less per show. Costume and travel expenses are really high. You will never make your money back.
If you start a website you will just get your content stolen and uploaded for free by the tube sites so you won’t make money there either. Either that or you fans will just watch you for free on tube sites rather than pay to join yours.
Lastly, there’s escorting which always was a taboo subject in porn. Very famous performers are now charging $200-$400 on sites like Humanaplex and Backpage and the fans know it. Do you think they will ever pay $1,200-$1,800 ever again? Then, they go and write about it on review sites to spread the word to others that used to pay that rate.
Why work in the sex industry now, weed money? It’s one thing If you are doing this and living well, but if you fuck for a living and live in a cheap motel, or at your parents house you are degrading yourself.
Thank you to my readers, fans and friends that wished me a happy birthday on my Facebook, Twitter, email, and this blog!
New Year’s 2013 was the best I had in years! So good in fact that I still havent fully recovered. I usually opt not to drink. I probably have as little as 8 drinks a year. I had a few more than that from what I remember.
This pic says it all. I woke up the following night (yes, night!) sick and have had the flu ever since. But it was the best night out I had in a very long time. Special thanks to Noel Ashman, Gia Jordan, Melle Mel, Liam McMullan and all the new friends I made that night.
UPPER EAST SIDE — A Manhattan heiress with substance abuse problems roughed up her sobriety companion in her dad’s swanky Southampton home, a new lawsuit charges.
Joselyn Wohl, the daughter of real estate mogul Larry Wohl, is accused of throwing her addiction coach, Heather McKean, down a flight of stairs and choking her.
McKean is now suing Joselyn, her father and her socialite mother, Denise Wohl, for not doing enough to safeguard against the 32-year-old heiress’ “violent propensities,” according to a lawsuit filed Monday in Manhattan Civil Supreme Court.
McKean’s lawyer, Bryan J. Swerling, said his client had worked for a year with Joselyn as a live-in companion before the alleged March 5 attack.
“She was hired by the Wohls, Denise and Larry, to spend time with her daughter, who obviously had some issues,” Swerling said. “One day Joselyn made up her mind she didn’t want Heather around anymore and attacked her on the stairwell and yanked her down the stairs.”
Swerling said Joselyn then choked McKean until his client managed to free herself and locked herself in a room to call police. The lawyer said Southampton cops took her into custody but never formally charged her.
“It took [McKean] by surprise,” Swerling said of the alleged attack. “It’s my understanding that Joselyn has had some prior outbursts.”
The Southampton Town Police Department did not immediately provide information on the alleged incident.
The Wohls, who have a Park Avenue apartment, are known for their philanthropy and hosting galas around the city. Joselyn’s socialite sister, Arden Wohl, who sports a signature headband, frequently shows up as a boldface name in gossip columns.
A message left at Larry Wohl’s real estate firm was not immediately returned.
Swerling said McKean suffered back and knee injuries in the alleged attack and will need to have surgery.
McKean, who now lives in Florida, is also suing her employer, Cerberus Life Management. The lawsuit does not specify the amount she seeks.
