Porn Identity: Chyna Ends Relationship with PR Firm

by at . Comments

Joanie Laurer wants to make one thing clear: she is porn to be wild!

The former wrestler, best known as "Chyna," has embarked on a new career in the adult film industry (Backdoor to Chyna comes out on June 27) and, as she told THG last week, couldn't be happier with her decision.

The New Chyna

But the same can't be said for Daisi Pollard Sepulveda, who works at the PR firm Model House Talent and has been representing Chyna for months.

Earlier this month, the publicist referred to Chyna's move into porn as a "negative life choice," a critique that has officially severed her professional relationship with Laurer.

Listen to Sepulveda's comments HERE and then read Chyna's letter in response to them, provided exclusively to The Hollywood Gossip, in which she cuts ties with the PR agency.

Dear Daisi,

You posted an announcement last Sept. 27th stating that I was a client of Model House Talent. As such, you should have been looking out for my best interests and helping to portray me in a positive light to the media.  Recently, however, you made statements to the media that were critical of my decision to enter into a relationship with Vivid Entertainment, which has just released my movie “Backdoor to Chyna.”

At the very least, you should have contacted me before you said anything on my behalf on this subject. I find it ironic that you managed to promote yourself in your outreach to the media while saying negative things about me, your supposed client.

I’m sending you this letter to officially end our relationship even though you stated that I never “officially retained any of (your) company’s services regarding public relations.”  You no longer have the right to use my name and/or image in any way, shape or form.

Personally, I am very happy with my decision to make an adult movie with Vivid. They are a great company and have treated me fairly. My fans are the beneficiaries.  Sales are terrific and I’m already thinking about what I want in my next movie.

I hope you achieve the success that you want as well.

I remember watching her as a teenager and being inspired. She was a strong woman who was actually doing unique things in the WWE (then WWF.) She put the little stick figure "Divas" to shame though back then all the women in the ring could actually wrestle. Now that she's doing this its hard to still see her in the light of a powerful woman. She had surgery to change her look and now she's selling her body. I hope this makes her happy, but some how I doubt she's going to look back on this in 20 years and be proud of doing it. Everything she showed to the young girls who were different back in the 90s is going away, as opposed to showing them that you don't have to conform to normal standards of beauty she's now showing that you should change yourself and compromise yourself to fit in.

If she wants to fuck for a living...let her...and if people want to support and watch these films...let them. who freaking cares. Since when did everyone get so critical.

honestly it is her decision. If she feels she likes what she is doing then good for her.

Agreed to both comments.
Sad lost little girl, that's all.

Who wants to represent a whore anyway?

she's sad, after watching her on The Surreal Life & Celebrity Rehab, I feel sorry for her. She is grasping at any way to make some fast cash.
