Somethin' Ain't Right
It seems actor Laurence Fishburn is having issues with his daughter Montana's new profession. She's become a porn star for Vivid Studios.
He said to her, furiously, "You're an embarrassment to the family!
You used your real last name!
Nobody does that in porn!"
Ay, there's the rub. I guess he's familiar with the genre.
Besides, everyone knows strippers, drag queens and porn actors derive their stage names from combining the name of their first pet and the name of the street they grew up on. I would Kitty Conestoga, for example.
Montana Fishburn obviously has issues with her daddy.
Was he a neglectful or otherwise withdrawn father?
Did he emotionally or physically abuse her?
God forbid, did he sexually abuse her?
I have no beef with porn, but in the hierarchy of sluttiness I give strippers the bronze, the silver goes to hookers and porn actors get the gold.
What they do in porn, no matter how disgusting, is committed to film for all eternity. Even if they make the switch to mainstream acting, they are forever branded as, "former porn star."
Montana Fishburn is coy with the media. She has no regrets, not even about her father's refusal to have anything to do with her "until she straightens up her life."
She seems upbeat and articulate.
I think she could have been a legitimate actor if she had gone that route first.
But now she's doing porn and her father is mortified. He seems pretty grouchy anyway, so maybe he should take a look at his role in Montana's decision.
Fathers, mothers, what would you do if your daughter (or son) became a porn actor?
