Adult film star Sunny Leone wants her run on the new reality show “My Bare Lady 2: Open for Business” to improve the image of folks in her line of work.
“My main goal, since I came into this industry,” divulged Leone, “is I wanted to change one person’s view at a time.”
She gets a chance to do that on “My Bare Lady 2,” which was aired on the Fox Reality Channel.
The series is an “Apprentice”-like show where four adult film actresses – Leone, Brooke Haven, Casey Parker and Veronica Rayne - live together and get business guidance from executive coach Mike Mataraza. Together, they’ll rely on what they learn from Mataraza to try to run a business outside of the bedroom. In the first episode, for instance, they try to boost income at a car wash.
The business world is nothing new to Leone.
“I treat my career, my image, as a business already,” she said.
Fact is, it was her business acumen that got Leone, the 2003 Penthouse Pet of the Year, on the show in the first place. When she auditioned last winter, she thought she was trying out for a dating series. But soon the questions turned to dollars and cents and she was cast on “My Bare Lady 2.”
“Sunny is very, very smart,” said Bob Boden, senior vice president of programming and production at the Fox Reality Channel. “When she came into our interview, we knew right away she was right for the show.”
