Kelly, took her on in debates on media outlets across Hillsborough County causing quite a stir. In the end she was forced to leave Florida for her own safety.
In 2011 Kelly, has been getting involved in porn politics. Going up against the likes of Shelley Lubben via twitter and her blog www.secretkelly.com and the board known as pornwikileaks (not to be confused with this website). Which is ran by former pornstar Donny Long and friends of his. Kelly, has gone to blows with them on several occasions on twitter and the forum they have. She was sticking up for transsexual female to male pornstar Buck Angel. Which in turn they made her a wiki page along with many others full of fallacy and slander. Claiming Kelly has HIV and prostitutes. Kelly, retaliated by posting her STD test on her blog, twitter, and facebook. As far as the prostitution claims. Kelly, has been with her husband for three years. She was and will be again in 2012 a porn performer and now webcam model and in the past she used to strip for money and do female impersonation shows. She has never been convicted of anything illegal and nor does she plan on it. Kelly, spends her time helping her community and trying to educate and spread love.
Going back to the owner of pornwikileaks Donnny Long, not to be confused with this platform has been convicted of a felony, wife beating, and much more! Pornwikileaks gives out performers real names and then slanders them in anyway they can. Kelly, has spoken out to the group many times and has in result in their mind been punished by their actions with what they have written about her on their wiki page. Kelly, has stood strong and is of the opinion they are a very sorry group of people.
