Jenna Marie Massoli was born in Las Vegas, Nev. Her father, Lawrence Massoli, is an Italian American police officer at the Las Vegas Sheriff's Department and program director for KSNV-TV. Her mother, Judith Brooke Hunt, was a Las Vegas showgirl who danced in the Folies Bergère show at the Tropicana Resort & Casino. Her mother died of melanoma on Feb. 20, 1976, two months prior to her daughter's second birthday. The cancer treatments bankrupted the family, and they relocated in Nevada, Arizona and Montana, usually living in a trailer home or living with her paternal grandmother. She has an older brother, Tony. She was a frequent entrant in beauty pageants as a child, and enrolled in ballet classes throughout her childhood. In a featurette on the Zombie Strippers DVD, Jameson indicates she trained in dance for fifteen years.
Fucked up as a kid
When she was 16 years old and while the family was living on a cattle ranch in Fromberg, Mont., she was beaten with rocks and gang raped by four boys after a football game at Fromberg High School. The incident began after she attempted to hitchhike home, and after she entered the car of the four boys while believing she would be driven to her home. She reported being raped a second time while still 16 by "Preacher," her boyfriend Jack's biker uncle. Preacher has denied the rape ever occurred. Rather than tell her father, she left home and moved in with Jack in her first serious relationship. Creepily, her father was later able to instantly identify Jenna's genitals in a photo line-up on "The Howard Stern Show." He knew her pussy better than the back of his hand.
She hates being called a whore and will freak the fuck out if anyone says it to her face. (Truth hurts.) Claims it's because that's what Preacher called her during their special time together. Ironically, she made her fortune by being just that, a whore. Since the word came from someone called "Preacher" (allegedly), one could say it was a divine calling -- or maybe like a "Field of Dreams" type thing: "If you whore out your cunt, the money will come." So lighten up, Miss Massoli -- as you read this, look around the room at everything you have and know that it all came from that word: whore. Then look in the mirror and say it: "I am a whore."
Jack was a tattoo artist, and gave her the first of a series of tattoos, one of which would become her trademark tattoo, two hearts on her right buttock. Her brother Tony, who later owned a tattoo parlor himself, added the inscription "Heart Breaker."
She tried to follow in her mother's career as a Las Vegas showgirl, but most shows rejected her for not having the then-typical height of 5 feet 8 inches. She was hired at Disneyland Resort, but left after two months because lazy whores don't like to work long hours for low pay.
Her boyfriend Jack encouraged her to apply for jobs as a dancer, and in 1991, though underage, she began dancing in Las Vegas strip clubs using a fake ID. After she was rejected from the Crazy Horse Too strip club because of her ugly braces, she removed her braces with pliers and was accepted. After six months, she was earning $2K per night before graduating from Bonanza High School.
Her first stage name as a dancer was "Jennasis," which she later used as the name of a business she incorporated ("Jennasis Killing Co."). She chose the name "Jenna Jameson" to use as a model after scrolling through the phone book for a last name that matched her first name, before finally deciding on Jameson after the whiskey, which she's known to get drunk on.
Besides dancing, starting later in 1991 she posed for nude photographs for photographer Suze Randall in Los Angeles, with the intention of getting into Penthouse. After her photos had appeared in several men's magazines under various names, she then stopped working for Randall, feeling Randall was "a shark" who had been taking advantage of her.
While in high school, she began taking drugs — cocaine, LSD, and methamphetamine — accompanied by her brother (who was addicted to heroin) and at times her father. Her addiction worsened during her four years with her boyfriend. She eventually stopped eating properly and became too thin to model; Jack left her in 1994. She weighed 76 pounds (less than 35 kilograms) when a friend put her in a wheelchair and sent her to her father, who was then living in Redding, Calif., in order to detox; her father did not recognize her when she got off the plane.
Jameson says that she started acting in pornographic videos in retaliation for the infidelity of her boyfriend, Jack. She first appeared in an erotic film in 1993, a non-explicit softcore movie by Andrew Blake, with girlfriend Nikki Tyler, whom she'd met modeling for Suze Randall. Her first pornographic movie scenes were filmed by Randy West and appeared in 1994's Up and Cummers 10 and Up and Cummers 11. She quickly achieved notice and appeared in several other pornographic films while still living in Las Vegas.
Of her first pornographic movie, Randy West said, “Jenna contacted me and said she wanted to get into the XXX business, but her agent didn’t want her to do porn. A month later I’m on a shoot in Woodland Hills [a San Fernando Valley section of Los Angeles], and there’s Jenna. She said she wanted to get into the business despite what her agent said. I told her if you want to just do a girl/girl scene, we can do that. She said she wanted to work with Kylie Ireland, so I set it up. When the sex started, she just fucking rocked! I knew Jenna was special right off the bat. I figured she’d be the next Ginger Lynn, but nobody had any idea she was going to be as big as she turned out to be. Jenna told me when we first met that she was going to be a star.”
Jameson got her first breast implants on July 28, 1994, to enhance her stripping and movie careers. By 2004, she had had two different sets of breast implants and a chin implant.
Jameson's first pornographic film appearances were lesbian scenes (a common way female performers ease into the business). She says: "Girl-on-girl was easy and natural. Then they offered me lots of money to do boy-girl." Her first heterosexual scene was in Up and Cummers 11 (1994). At the beginning of her career, she promised herself that she'd never do anal sex or double penetration scenes on film. Instead, her "signature move" was oral sex, lubricated with saliva. She is also a racist and has never done any interracial sex scenes with men.
In 1994, after overcoming her drug addiction by spending several weeks with her father and grandmother, Jameson relocated to Los Angeles to live with Nikki Tyler. She started modeling again, and in 1995 got her father's blessing to make a career out of pornographic films. Her first movie after that was Silk Stockings. Later in 1995, Wicked Pictures, a then small pornographic film production company, signed her to an exclusive contract. She remembers telling Wicked founder Steve Orenstein: "The most important thing to me right now is to become the biggest star the industry has ever seen."
The contract earned Jameson $6K for each of eight movies in her first year. Her first big-budget production was Blue Movie (1995), where she played a reporter investigating a porn set; it won multiple AVN Awards. In 1996, Jameson won top awards from three major industry organizations, the XRCO Best New Starlet award, the AVN Best New Starlet Award, and the Fans of X-Rated Entertainment (FOXE) Video Vixen award. She was the first entertainer to win all three awards. A stream of other awards followed.
By 2001, Jameson earned $60K for a day and a half of filming a single DVD, and $8K per night dancing at strip clubs. She tried to restrict herself to five films per year and two weeks of dancing per month. Her husband Jay Grdina has said she earned as much as $25K per night dancing.
In November 2005, she began hosting Playboy TV's Jenna's American Sex Star, where prospective porn stars compete in sexual performances for a contract with her company, ClubJenna. Winners of the contracts for the first two years were Brea Bennett and Roxy Jezel.
In August 2007, Jameson had her breast implants removed, reducing her from a D to a C cup; she also said she was finished with appearing on camera in pornographic films, though she would continue running ClubJenna, which was grossing $30 million per year. In January 2008, Jameson confirmed she is retiring from pornographic performances and has since said that she "won't even do a Maxim cover."
While Jameson has stated in the past she is bisexual, and that she has fucked 100 women and 30 men off-screen in her life, she has also stated she is "totally hetero." She has stated the best relationship she ever had was her lesbian relationship with porn actress Nikki Tyler, which she documents in her autobiography. They lived together at the start of her porn career and again before her second marriage. Famous boyfriends discussed in her autobiography include Marilyn Manson and Tommy Lee.
On December 20, 1996, Jameson married porn star/Wicked Pictures director Brad Armstrong (real name Rodney Hopkins). The marriage lasted just 10 weeks. Although they informally separated in March 1997, she remained contractually obligated to work on Wicked Pictures projects involving both of them. They legally separated and divorced in March 2001, after Brad discovered her fucfing around with Jorge Araya Montoya (whom she met in a visit to Costa Rica).
In the summer of 1998, Jameson met former pornographic studio owner Jay Grdina (born John G. Grdina), scion of a wealthy cattle-ranching family, who had entered pornographic film production after college. From 1998 until Jameson's retirement, Grdina was Jameson's only on-screen male sex partner, acting under the name Justin Sterling. They were engaged in December 2000, well before her divorce from Armstrong/Hopkins, and married June 22, 2003. They tried to have children from mid-2004 onwards, as Jameson had planned to retire from adult entertainment upon becoming a mother. The couple resided in Scottsdale, Arizona, in a 6,700-square-foot (620 m2) Spanish-style mansion, bought for $2 million in 2002.
In November 2004, Jameson was diagnosed with skin cancer. Though surgery removed it, she miscarried shortly after the diagnosis. She was unable to conceive again, even with in vitro fertilization. Jameson said the in vitro process "wasn't a good thing for me"; she got fat and did not get pregnant. According to Jameson, the stresses of the cancer plus infertility led to her marriage's collapse. In August 2006, Star magazine and TMZ.com confirmed with Jameson's publicist that she and Grdina had separated, and that Jameson was fucking musician Dave Navarro.
In October 2006, it was reported that Jameson began fucking mixed martial artist and former UFC champion Tito Ortiz, whom she met on My Space. Ortiz cancelled a Nov. 12, 2006, appearance as the guest of honor at the United States Marine Corps birthday ball at the Marine Corps Air Station Miramar in San Diego when the Corps refused to let him bring Jameson as his guest. On Nov. 30, 2006, in an interview on The Howard Stern Show, Ortiz stated that he was in love with Jameson, that she was no longer acting in pornography, and that they were in a monogamous relationship. On Dec. 12, 2006, Jameson filed for divorce from Grdina. She introduced Ortiz and talked about their relationship at the 2008 AVN Adult Movie Awards while she was presenting an award. She also made brief appearances on two episodes of The Celebrity Apprentice to help Ortiz on the tasks assigned in those episodes.
Jameson announced in August 2008 that she and Ortiz were expecting twins in April 2009. On March 16, 2009, Jameson gave birth to twin boys, Jesse Jameson and Journey Jette.
On April 26, 2010, Ortiz was arrested for beating the shit out of Jameson at the couple's Huntington Beach, Calif., home. Jameson was photographed afterward that day with a bandaged arm, amid accusations by both parties against each other, with Ortiz accusing Jameson of being erratic and addicted to OxyContin, while she alleged that he was abusive. Since the incident occurred, both parties have recanted these allegation, though as of April 29, 2010, the investigation by the police department remains open.
On Oct. 22, 2013, Jameson appeared disoriented and trashed on the set of Fox's Good Day New York, just hours after she'd given a lucid interview on a Bravo show. Jameson was promoting her debut erotic novel, Sugar, and blamed lack of sleep for the awkward interview, which the show cut short after she began slurring her words and appearing confused. At the time of the interview, Jameson was involved in a nasty split with Ortiz.
