Ex-porn star Jenna Jameson to star in reality show as she converts to Judaism

Jenna Jameson’s days starring in adult films are behind her, but she still has plans to appear on camera. The former porn star’s fiance, Lior Britton, an Israeli diamond merchant, recently chatted with the Hebrew publication Walla, and shared that a reality show featuring him and Jameson is in the early stages of development, according to the Times of Israel.

Britton was quick to clarify that the show will not include “adult content,” and likened it to Keeping up with the Kardashians. Apparently, Jameson’s conversion to Judaism in preparation for their wedding will be a big part of the show. Their wedding is set for next year, but neither an air date for the show nor any producers have been announced yet.

Unfortunately, the series will not feature Britton breaking the news to his mom that he’s dating one of the world’s most famous porn stars. As much as it could make for an interesting story line, the cat is already out of the bag. Britton told Walla that he shared details about Jameson’s past slowly. “At the start, I didn’t tell [my mother] who she was,” he admitted. “I let her know in bits and pieces until eventually she was able to accept it. And then it was fine.”

Although raised Catholic, Jameson decided to convert to Judaism and has become a staunch supporter of Israel. She said as much in a tweet on Oct. 14, describing “constant worry” for family in the country.

Reality TV isn’t a new area for Jameson, but this would be her biggest non-adult series to date. Not only did she guest star on The Simple Life in 2007, she appeared on the U.K.’s Big Brother this summer. As THR pointed out, while filming the latter, she kept a separate fridge from her housemates and followed a kosher diet.

Nicknamed “The Queen of Porn,” Jameson retired from the adult film industry in 2008 after a 15-year career.

Why Star Wars Jedi: Survivor’s Cal Kestis needs his own Disney+ show

As Lucasfilm finally seems to be getting the ball rolling again for Star Wars on the theatrical front, the video game space has been showing the franchise's continued narrative strength. The latest example is Respawn Entertainment's Star Wars Jedi: Survivor. The sequel to 2019's successful Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order fleshes out the journey of Cal Kestis (voiced by Gotham and Shameless actor Cameron Monaghan), with his story feeling every bit as worthy of a live-action series.

Shows like Dave Filoni's Ahsoka look promising given Rosario Dawson's pitch-perfect performance in season 2 of The Mandalorian and Filoni's passion for the franchise. Should Lucasfilm want more Jedi-centric storytelling on Disney+, the Star Wars Jedi games have rich characters (all hail Turgle!) and intriguing storylines that could be an ideal fit for the episodic format that made Obi-Wan Kenobi and Andor so compelling.

Every time we’ve seen Order 66 in Star Wars movies, video games, and TV shows
Anakin marches to the Jedi temple in Revenge of the Sith.

Twenty years ago, if you asked a Star Wars fan to name the most pivotal moment in the franchise’s fictional history, you could be confident that they’d answer with the Battle of Yavin, the climax of Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope. After all, this event serves as the starting point of the official Star Wars calendar; fans and producers alike measure time in Star Wars in terms of years BBY (Before the Battle of Yavin) or years ABY (After the Battle of Yavin), endowing the destruction of the Death Star with a historical importance within the fictional galaxy that's equivalent to the birth of Christ. Though the BBY/ABY calendar is still in service today, the ever-expanding Star Wars continuity now revolves around a different moment of historical import: Order 66, the flashpoint of the Jedi Purge and the rebranding of the Galactic Republic into the Galactic Empire.
First depicted in Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith in 2005, Order 66 has become the most revisited moment in the current Star Wars canon, and explored from a multitude of perspectives. Then-Supreme Chancellor Palpatine’s directive to execute the entire Jedi Order, from the ruling council to the youngest student, is now the inciting incident for Star Wars as we know it. Every character active in galactic affairs in the year 19 BBY has their own Order 66 story, and several of them have been depicted in film, television, and video games. Let's takea look back at each substantive on-screen portrayal of the Jedi Purge to determine what (if anything) each of them adds to our understanding of the tragedy and its repercussions on the Star Wars galaxy.

5 video games to play after you’ve watched the Star Wars show Andor
video games to play after andor star wars disney plus squadrons

While the oversaturation of content on Disney+ is beginning to affect quality -- Star Wars included -- Andor is making an impressive effort to revitalize the IP. Its down to earth and gritty scope is a breath of fresh air, and it's making familiar ground feel worth revisiting. As the show spurs renewed excitement over Star Wars, the video game medium offers some great experiences for fans looking to chase that Andor hype.

We've yet to get a similarly grounded, stealth third-person shooting game in this universe for the modern age. Perhaps the canceled Star Wars 1313 might have scratched that itch to some degree, but games like Fallen Order and Battlefront II can touch on related thematic points.
