Interview With Dee - January 25, 2003
On The Set of "Latin X" in Los Angeles, CA
PornstarEmpire.com: Now we were talking off-Mic about your producing career. You've been doing some stuff for Video Team... How's that been going?
Dee: It's been going real well. He just finished wrapping on Chocolate Cream Pie, and that's due out in the next month. In mid-Febuary we are doing a Mamacitas and a No Man's Land Latin version.
Q: The rumor going around was that you had retired from performing, and now you are back again. How's your career stand?
Dee: Actually, I never retired. I just took... not a hiatus. I just stepped back a while to re-group. I never retired. Its funny when people don't see you... I don't like that word retired. Retire means you're gone. I stepped back just to reflect on things and chill.
Q: Is that important? To get some time for yourself. In this industry?
Dee: Yeah, it's very important to step back and take time for yourself as a person. When the lifestyle of the business is very fast.
Q: How did you originally get into the adult industry?
Dee: I originally got in with Rob about five years ago, and just walked into World Modeling one day. He met Julia Rage and Greg Steele. They told him where to go and we went and talked to Jim South and Steve Austin and one thing led to another.
Q: Why did you get into the adult business?
Dee: Something different. Something I wanted to try out. Something freaky. I stepped back and said there's more to his than just the movies. Then I started a management company and producing a few years later.
Q: What are the challenges of being an ethnic minority in the adult business?
Dee: It's very challenging because you have a lot to prove as a performer and as a female. You have to carry yourself very different from every one else. You have to build a reputation for yourself by showing up on time and giving a good performance, and keep a good attitude about things regardless of what's going on in your world. You have to find people that will support you and back you up. And put you in good movies, and not put you in those typecasting rolls.
Q: What's more challenging to you - the sex or the acting?
Dee: The acting. The sex is the fun part. The sex is like "Oh, sex!" The acting... because we don't come from a background of acting, and we have a lot more to prove. Yeah, its just sex, that's fine. But you can't treat it like that. You have to learn, you have to be serious about it
Q: How's your personal life?
Dee: Its good. I'm happy.
Q: Are you in a relationship at the moment?
Dee: Yes, I am. I am in a relationship... The person I'm with is my partner who produces with me and directs.
Q: Now what are the challenges of maintaining the relationship in this business?
Dee: Oh... That's...
Q: The Million Dollar question?
Dee: That's when a lot of patience comes in. A lot of understanding. I see it like this. You want to be a part of a relationship in this business you have to be open with each other, you have to spend time together. Communication. Always talking. Letting each other know what's going on. Always letting the other person know what you are thinking and what you are feeling. Because if you don't that's where the miscommunication comes in. A lot of feelings get hurt.
Q: Now going back to the "R" word. Is their ever a time where you for see wanting to retire?
Dee: Yeah, there's a time. Where I'll step back and say, Yeah, I'm done for a while. I want to concentrate more on the bigger picture.
Q: Where do you see yourself in ten years?
Dee: Ten years from now... I see myself relaxed. More into production. Probably a mommy.
Interview with Dee - September 12, 2001
On the Set Of "Soul Survivor" in Los Angeles, CA
Pornstarempire.com: So, I'm sitting here talking with Dee. How are you doing Dee?
Dee: I'm doing good.
Q: So Dee, you're on this movie...and how many does this make for you?
Dee: Umm...I really don't...gosh...maybe 300 and something (laughing).
Q: 300 and something in how long?
Dee: 4 years, which in actuality is not that bad. Some people do 200 or 300 in less than a year. So for me that's like...not bad. 300 is really not bad for 4 years so...(laughing).
Q: So, what was your first movie?
Dee: Black Street Hookers #7.
Q: And who did you work with?
Dee: TT (Boy) and a girl named Cappuccino.
Q: How was that?
Dee: It was...a lot of people think that because of TT Boy, that I would be scared of TT Boy but I was more scared of the girl because I had never had interaction with a girl before. Which I never did a scene with her, it was just the fact that she was in the scene that scared me because I didn't know what to do. The sex was great and a lot of fun, so I wasn't scared about what to do with scary ol' TT (laughing).
Q: And were you a fan of porn before you got in?
Dee: Umm...actually, I wasn't really a fan of porn. Umm...I had boyfriends that liked to watch porn. At the time it was a real turn off because I couldn't understand why they would be watching it when I'm sitting here in front of you. So I never really understood the idea of porn until I got into the business. So, after I got into the business I started understanding the reality of why people watch porn and things like that. But I don't...I never knew anybody, I didn't know who anyone was, I didn't know who Ron Jeremy was, which everyone in the world knew but me. I didn't know who anybody was until I got into the business. That was pretty much it.
Q: And what got you into the business?
Dee: Just the fun of...of doing something different. Having an experience that most people could never have and I thought what the hell if I have someone with me who's open minded, who doesn't mind, who's very supportive. I have...it wasn't money, it wasn't fame, it wasn't to be a star. I figured hell, I get to have sex and have fun. Cool, let's do it, you know. And it wasn't going to be a career thing, it was more like...if we didn't like it, if it was too much then we'll get out. We could do other things; this business is just for fun, that's why we got into it.
Q: And how has the business been treating you so far?
Dee: Really good. Yeah...I have to say you meet great people and travel around the world and do things that a normal person my age could probably never do for a lifetime. So I'm thankful for that.
Q: You've done a lot of traveling?
Dee: Yeah (laughing). (Someone stops in to say hello.) Hi...it's like a family here.
Q: So what is it about the business that you really like?
Dee: I think it's the freedom and the ability to express ourselves without any...what's the word...without anyone looking down on you.
[At this point, Dee had to leave and go to the set. I hope to catch up with her again very soon!]
