Many say that Jenna Jameson is the world's premiere female porn star. She has appeared on television and in more than 1,000 mainstream magazine articles. She has been on more than 400 magazine covers. Born in 1974, Jenna began modeling nude for men's magazines at 18 and began her career in adult movies at 20. According to Rolling Stone, Jenna Jameson is the actress who "put the star in porn star." In one magazine interview, it indicated that Jenna "enjoys shopping, water skiing, and sex, but not necessarily in that order!" Jenna Jameson moved to Scottsdale in 1998 and says that she loves it.

The only downside to living in Arizona, according to Jenna, is the lack of haute couture.

Otherwise, it's time to dust off that library card! Here's an excerpt from the article: "Ms. Jameson had on a modest blue cashmere Louis Vuitton sweater, jeans, and pink patent leather Louis Vuitton boots, along with as a 9 1/2-carat diamond wedding ring and a 13-carat canary diamond from her husband.

She looked like any other affluent Scottsdale homemaker, except that her surgically enhanced 32 double-D breasts seem disproportionate to her 110-pound, 5-foot-7 frame."
