About this deal

In November, she became a recurring cast member in the second season of the crime television series Profiler. Her only porn movie legally available in the United States is Traci, I Love You, filmed in Cannes, France [25] two days after her 18th birthday. In the end, Lords didn't really hurt Penthouse , even if she made their most popular issue a crime to own. Because my mind is in the past (the mid-eighties) and in the gutter (the porn biz) for reasons that will become clear, I've spent a lot of time thinking about the September 1984 issue of Penthouse .

Lords starred in adult films and was one of the most sought-after actresses in that industry during her career. And for a Black woman to take the prize, be chosen as the country's official—"official," at the time, being code for "white"—feminine ideal, was a milestone. Somebody in the press got an advance copy, and released it to the New York Post or the Daily News , one of those, the same exact day that Walter Mondale announced he was picking Geraldine Ferraro as his running mate. Her version of the story was a cross between a cautionary tale and a survival guide: She was an innocent victim, a 15-year-old kid who’d gotten caught in the clutches of the scummy adult industry and had made it out alive but only through sheer luck; she certainly hadn’t tipped off the FBI.Actually, Williams would get her revenge on Penthouse, if only a taste of it and indirectly, a lot sooner than 2010. In July 1986, the very same month she abandoned her suit against the magazine, it was revealed that the most famous adult actress in the world, Traci Lords, had been underage for nearly her entire career.

In January 2008, it was announced that Lords had been cast in Kevin Smith's comedy Zack and Miri Make a Porno (2008). When investigators used Lords' fake birth certificate and fake state identification cards to locate the real Kristie Nussman, Nussman said that her birth certificate had been stolen a few years earlier and that an impostor had apparently forged her name on official forms.Then, in July of ’86, it was revealed in dramatic fashion—the FBI busting down Traci’s door—that she’d been underage for virtually her entire adult career.

The song " He's My Bitch" managed to chart on the Billboard Dance Club Songs peaking at number twenty-five. What’s more, this podcast is the story of a particular individual, Traci Lords, but it’s also the story of a particular time and place: the Valley in the mid ’80s. Johnny Depp's 'Cry-Baby' Co-Star Once Claimed He Innocently 'Climbed Into Bed' With Her – 'I Was Nervous As Heck' ". I’m getting ahead of myself, though, because I should explain the story first: Traci Lords was the biggest porn star in the world in the mid 1980s.

Guccione would forfeit his magazine in 2003, his fortune in 2006, and his life in 2010, when he died in Plano, TX, after a protracted battle with throat cancer. She provided Kuzma with a new birth certificate on condition that if she were ever caught she would say that she had stolen the phony identification. Traci was under the age of consent, which should make her case cut and dry: She’s the victim, full stop. Her first mainstream break came out in 1988 Not of This Earth, a remake of the classic Roger Corman sci-fi film from the 1950s. AFAIK, no one has ever been prosecuted for owning that Penthouse, so the assumption that the photos are child porn is probably wrong.
