LOS ANGELES - Porn stars Tera Patrick, Gina Lynn, Nicki Hunter and Buck Angel appear in tonight's episode of the WE Network reality series "Secret Lives of Women."
The "Secret Lives" crew followed the three stars during the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas, interviewing them about a variety of topics including business, the pressure of fame and how a woman can balance a career in adult entertainment with a family.
Patrick gave the crew unprecedented access to her family in a segment taped later at her home.
"No one in my family has done any on-camera interviews until now," she said. "They wanted to interview my younger sister Debbie and get a different point of view. She was happy to do the piece. Debbie sees my life from a different side and offers things that industry people can't. She puts some rumors to rest and apparently tells some secrets as well. You'll have to tune into the episode to see."
The show followed Lynn to a full body casting in Las Vegas.
"They followed me around in Las Vegas for the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo, which was crazy," she said. "We had them around for the body cast as well. I've done it a few times before. The artist uses the molds to make art pieces and sells them for charity."
Nicki Hunter's segment addresses her battle with leukemia and her return to the adult industry.
"My publicist [April Storm] told me they were looking for performers with interesting stories and thought I would be perfect for the episode," said Hunter. "It was very exciting. The WE network has a great reputation and I knew this wouldn't be the normal hatchet piece. They wanted to know about more than just Nicki Hunter the porn star. I am also a businesswoman, a wife and a mother. We talked about my company, my battle with leukemia and my relationship with my husband."
Hunter was pleased with the way the show approached her.
"I like that they focused on my family, that I can still have sex with other people, enjoy what I do and have a healthy, loving relationship with my husband," she said.
TS star Angel offers the most unusual segment. Known as "The Man with The Pussy," Angel was named Transsexual Performer of the Year at the 2007 AVN Awards.The episode premieres tonight at 10. For more information, visit "The Secret Lives of Women" website: http://www.wetv.com/shows/secretlives/.
