Jenna Jameson Plans Reality Show on Conversion to Judaism

Former porn star Jenna Jameson will be the subject of a reality show documenting her conversion to Judaism and her upcoming marriage in Israel.

Jameson’s Israeli fiance, diamond merchant Lior Bitton, told Israel’s Walla news that the show is in its early production stages, the Times of Israel reported Tuesday. It is unclear where the show will air.

Jameson, 41, retired from pornography in 2008 after winning over 35 adult film awards in a 15-year career. She announced in June that she was converting to Judaism to marry Bitton. Since then, she has repeatedly shown support for Israel and showcased her kosher cooking on social media.

Bitton, 41, told Walla News in the interview that it wasn’t easy telling his family that he was marrying the former “queen of porn.”

“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.”

The show will be modeled on reality shows such as “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” and will focus on Bitton and Jameson’s private life in the lead-up to their marriage.
