Please read my statement about Read Across America, and let's start a conversation about what really matters!
Most importantly, support http://banninghistory.blogspot.com/

This isn't even newsworthy. This is a sad attempt by a company I’ve never heard of to repackage and re-sell an outdated, previously-available scene, by touting it as one of my last scenes; nothing more than a cheap attempt to capitalize on the Read Across America controversy and my name. The real exploitation in the adult film business doesn’t happen on the set, it happens in instances like this; after the model release has long been signed. Companies can decide to mold you and your brand into theirs, making you part of their controversies just because they own or acquired rights to old performances. While I don’t regret my former profession, I regret that this type of exploitation continues to thrive today. Similar situations continue to happen to me and countless other performers, unfortunately it’s all part of the business we accept.


Truthfully, I don’t know what to be more upset about: The fact that people are now mislead to believe I’m personally selling this movie with salacious marketing, or the fact that the NEA won’t take donations from this pathetic company. There’s little money for education in this beautiful country, and as a pro-education advocate, it’s heartbreaking to hear this. The NEA has denied that I am associated with them, which is correct. The 14-year-old program I was part of last November was also called Read Across America, which is where the confusion lies. However, nobody has cared enough to point that out, and instead pointed their fingers at me, making me the bad guy. The real story here should be that the regional non-profit Read Across America,
Guest Reader Program that took place in Compton, CA is now defunct because of one lone disgruntled fan who harassed my parents, the school district, the media and me, for my involvement in such an important program. I think it’s sad that one person had enough time on their hands to inflict such an insurmountable amount of fear into an inner-city school district, causing the school to feel the need to lie about my presence and shut down the program altogether. It’s simply fascist.

Our educational system needs help. The Tucson Unified School District, for example, has banned a number of important books from their school system. Most of these books are rich in Mexican-American history. Here’s to hoping that we can bring education back to the forefront where it belongs.

I am proud to have participated in the "Read Across America" program at Emerson Elementary School in Compton, CA. I read “Dog Breath” by Dav Pilkey to the sweetest 1st and 3rd grade children. "Read Across America" is a program that was designed to promote literacy and instill a lifelong love of reading in elementary school students. Promoting education is an effort that is close to my heart. Illiteracy contributes to poverty; encouraging children to pick up a book is fundamental. I believe education is a universal right. I committed to this program with the understanding that people would have their own opinions about what I have done, who I am and what I represent. I am an actor. I am an artist. I am a daughter. I am a sister. I am a partner. I have a past that some people may not agree with, but it does not define who I am. I will not live in fear of it. To challenge non-profit education programs is an exercise in futility, counter-productive and anti-educational. I cannot thank my fans and “Read Across America” enough for supporting my decision. Your support and kind words continue to inspire me. I believe in the future of our children, and I will remain an active supporter and participant in education-focused initiatives.

A phenomenal program. Reading is a passion worth developing and cultivating. A good book is the best family appropriate way to relax after a long day

I've been hearing rumors that Netflix is cutting back on indie films due to budget cuts. With all of the absurd changes at Netflix last year, this is the last thing as a consumer I want. They used to be the place I'd go to so I could find a surprising film, I may have not otherwise read about online/magazine or heard about from friends. Another interesting fact. In order to get a film streaming on Netflix, the film has to have "X Amount" of people to put a DVD in their Netflix queue...which also means your less likely to stumble upon cinematic royalty or a great zombie flick. I wrote this for two reasons: ONE: I hope there's enough protest from customers that Netflix doesn't decide to take this path (or in hopes that some of you have the real dish on this) TWO: The first film I produced, 'Modus Operandi' (directed by Frankie Latina, starring Danny Trejo & Mark Borchardt) needs your support. Frankie Latina is a magnificently talented up-and-coming filmmaker & Trejo has always been one of my favorites. It was an honor to work with such promising and legendary folks, and hopefully it's only the first of things to come from such a superb team. If you're a Netflix user, please add this DVD to your queue so we can get it streaming! Thank you!

well, it seemed to go better than "Tyra" and more supportive group just asking the why of the situation.
As for SOA, Kurt Sutter is dark, talented and loves to spin his audience around like a group on the tilt-a-whirl. Have loved his work since the Shield.
