From Porn Star to Star of David: Jenna Jameson Makes Reality Show About Jewish Conversion

Former adult actress and her Israeli fiancee will allow cameras into their lives in lead up to their wedding

Former”Queen of Porn” Jenna Jameson is converting to Judaism and cameras will be there to capture every Shabbat dinner.

Jameson and her Israeli fiancee, diamond dealer Lior Bitton, will allow cameras to follow them in preparation for their wedding next year, according to the Times of Israel.. Jameson, who was born Catholic, will convert before the ceremony.

Bitton told the paper that he did not initially let his mother know of Jameson’s past career. “Look, I didn’t come to my mom and say, ‘I’m dating the biggest porn star in the world.’ I mean, there are porn stars, and then there’s Jenna Jameson,” Bitton said.

“At the start, I didn’t tell her who she was. It was a slow process. I let her know in bits and pieces until eventually she was able to accept it. And then it was fine.”

Bitton compared the concept for the show to “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” also saying that there would be nothing pornographic in the series.

“It’s a bit stressful, because I’m not used to being in front of the cameras. But I can assure you there won’t be any adult content in the show. I’m not going there,” he said.

Jameson first entered the porn industry in 1993, quickly becoming a top star. She launched her own company, ClubJenna, in 2000. It was estimated by Forbes that the company earned in excess of $30 million in 2005. She officially retired from porn in 2008.
