This Week in Adult Film History: Jenna Jameson's Twins, Kim Kardashian Becomes A Superstar & More

history
When we were putting together last week's This Week in Showbiz History, we were struck by how many "mature cinema performers" were observing milestones. And we realized that we'd rather read about that than the 30th anniversary of the premiere of some dusty-ass screen legend's directorial debut. Save that shit for IMDB Pro! This is Complex, and at Complex "showbiz" means "ho biz!" Well, it doesn't really, but it did seem like a pithy way to summarize how coarse and bottom-feeding we like to pretend to be. So without further ado, we present to you Showbiz History 2.0, aka This Week in Adult Film History! We've got some actresses, an auteur, and even a Complex wifey-for-life all celebrating career (and life) high points...

3/16/09: JENNA JAMESON GETS NEW TWINS
• When you leave porn, remove your implants, and get pregnant, it's all but cosmically ordained that you will have twins. In this case, the undisputed queen of '90s skin flicks popped out Jesse and Journey Jett, and by sticking with the double-J pattern of her own nom de freak all but ensured that her daughter would continue the cipher in 18 to 20 years. Tempting fate is a motherfucker...literally!

3/17/79: STORMY DANIELS BORN IN BATON ROUGE, LOUISIANA
• You know in The 40 Year Old Virgin when Paul Rudd brings the box of porn over to dude's house, and then he eventually tries to—oh, let's just say "pleasure himself"—to a movie called Space Nuts? Yeah, that's where you've seen her before. Also, the ragin' (boner-inducing) Cajun may end up being a senator!

3/17/80: KATIE MORGAN BORN IN LOS ANGELES
• It's the classic Hollywood story: Home-schooled girl with genius-level IQ grows up in Porn Valley; girl gets busted at 20 transporting 100 pounds of weed into the country from Mexico; girl gets into porn to pay off plea bargain; girl becomes a taut helium-voiced breakout star; girl fully crosses over, getting a series of HBO shows and documentaries about her. Please to notice that we didn't say "cockumentaries." Because we're 100% class.

3/21/22: RUSS MEYER BORN IN SAN LEANDRO, CALIFORNIA
• So you're 14, and your divorced mother pawns her wedding ring to buy you an 8mm camera. What do you do? Become the greatest sexploitation director of all time, of course, and make a career out of casting impossibly buxom women to roll around with each other in gloriously cheesy movies. So thank you, Russ Meyer—thank you for blazing that trail. It may not have led to the Oscars, but it certainly shaped the sensibility of this very website.

3/21/07: KIM KARDASHIAN'S SEX TAPE RELEASED
• We're not saying we've seen Kim Kardashian, Superstar, we're just saying that Reggie's a lucky man. And that T-Pain was right. AYOOOO!
