So you already know that today is Jenna Haze's birthday. [Aside: You see, grandma, we told you somebody was reading this crap!] But did you know that it's also Penny Flame's b-day? And that Jamie Lynn and Julia Bond are celebrating born days this week as well? What if they had a four-way (birthday party) and got real drunk and started trying to one-up each other and...you're not still reading, are you, grandma? Regardless, there's a veritable mighty wind of porn starlet (birthday candle) blowing over the next few days, plus a couple of tragic anniversaries, all in this edition of This Week in Showbiz History...

2/22/83: JENNIFER KETCHAM, A.K.A. PENNY FLAME, BORN IN AURORA, CO
• Last year, the multiple AVN Award winner (Repo Girl, Darkside, Layout) appeared on Sex Rehab with Dr. Drew in an effort to curb her sex addiction. She's now sober and blogging for the Huffington Post, and has conquered her addiction to hard drugs (though she still rides for weed). To which we say—in all seriousness—good on you, girl (and we're sure you realize your birth surname sounds like "catch 'em," so we'll refrain from pointing that out...oh wait). We applaud anyone who wants to change their life and takes the initiative to actually do so. But like grandma told us, just because somebody sort of famous does it, doesn't mean we have to, so no sex therapy for us, thank you very much.

2/22/05: LEE EUN-JU COMMITS SUICIDE
• A hugely popular actress in her native Korea, Eun-ju became seriously troubled by the nude scenes she did in what would be her last film, The Scarlet Letter, and took her own life at the age of 24. No jokes here, folks, just a moment to remember a beautiful talent who left too soon.

2/25/82: JAMIE LYNN BORN IN L.A.
• Not Spears, not Sigler, just Jamie Lynn. Yes, the 2006 Penthouse "Playmate of the Year" and High Times "Ganja Goddess" might consider changing her name (just for the poor lucky saps looking for chaste pics of the other J.L.'s who come across her in their Google searches). On second thought, she might actually be the "cleanest" of the J.L's: not preg as a teenager (that we know of), and never dated Turtle (that we know of).

2/26/87: JULIA BOND BORN IN LONG BEACH, CA
• Mother's Day is still a couple (three? four?) months away, but we're not gonna be the biggest assholes on the block if we give the moms Yankees tickets for her big day. That title would go to Ms. Bond, who went on Jerry Springer a few years back and told her mother that she appeared in "45 to 50" porn flicks in a year. Of course, she might win "biggest asshole" for other reasons, too, but we're not gonna measure those.

2/28/97: NORTH HOLLYWOOD SHOOTOUT
• From the Dept. of Life Imitating Art: According to reports, a copy of the L.A. bank shootout flick Heat was found in the apartment of Emil Matasareanu and Larry Philips Jr. after the two were killed in one of the most high-profile bank robbery gun fights in history. So let's see, you're gonna plan your heist after a film in which all of the participants die? We're not gonna say fail, but...OK, we're gonna say fail.
