Tyler Faith: I QUIT!
Source: Team Tyler Productions, Inc.

(BURBANK, CA) -- While resigning would probably be a natural reaction "The First Lady of KSEX" would have after last night’s shocking and somewhat embarrassing corporate decision to publicly dismiss and potentially destroy the credibility of the well liked and immensely talented adult personality and now (former) KSEX moniker, Wankus, adult superstar, Tyler Faith wanted to release an official resignation announcement in support of her personal and business partner of nearly three years.

"It’s not my place to comment on the particulars, as I was not involved in any of the day to day operations. I only caught information in passing, or by seeing projects Wankus spent hours editing, or being witness to a heated phone call with Jon (Belinkie, new KSEX C.E.O.)," Faith said. " but while I know Wankus is somewhat relieved that he won’t have to be witness to a far less experienced industry outsider potentially sink the ship, the way it went down proved why Wankus has had good reason to fear potential disaster and spend most of the last 12 months frustrated."

Many members of the KSEX audience echoed Tyler’s sentiments in the chat room last night and while most agreed change is best when partners don’t get along, taking the man who envisioned and created the entire operation and putting him on a public chopping block is perceived as "classless."

In his brief statement read over the telephone during LorrAINIAC’s nightly broadcast, Belinkie kept it generic and offered no reason for the termination, just as he described it, "one change of many to come." Yet in the termination letter Wankus received a few minutes following the on-air announcement (10:10pm Thursday evening), Belinkie listed a few items he felt justified "cause", which he considered enough evidence needed to terminate their contract.

"In reality, the items listed on Jon’s ‘cause’ list really cannot be proven," Tyler said, "nor do they apply and/or fall solely on the shoulders of Wankus. In my opinion, Jon needed a paper trail plain and simple. I watched and heard Wank day after day try to educate the new ‘east coast’ team on the best plans of attack, procedures and most importantly how to get the most out of talent while always keeping their best interests in mind and letting them know they are appreciated for their efforts.

Wankus still owns 20% of the company, so while he may be temporarily off the air or banned from the studio, he is still a partner and a player in the game for as long as he wants to hold onto that piece of the pie.

"Jon’s seemingly obvious attempt to embarrass Wankus, possibly to limit interest or raise concerns for anyone who would be smart enough to jump at the chance at utilizing his incredible gifts, are just too obvious and immature--in my opinion," Tyler stated. "It’s a low class and downright disrespectful way to treat anyone, let alone begin a new turn in KSEX’s future. Having such a lack of integrity as to humiliate the product and the genius that not only invented all the ingredients but presented this whole adult business with years of breaking news, entertainment and a lot of mainstream coverage, gives me no doubt that the future of KSEX is grim."

Of course, following every storm there is a rainbow and with love and confidence in Wankus’ abilities, Faith closed, "interestingly enough, after a year of hiatus from shooting with our production company, Team Tyler Productions, Inc., (partially due to the extra hours Wankus devoted to repairing KSEX), it is looking like we will resume shooting again very soon. In fact, over the weekend (Monday at the latest), we are set to sign a deal with a large and respectable distribution company. When all signatures touch the paper, Wankus and I will officially announce our return to film making."

"Some people say Wankus is an asshole. And ya know what, if I only knew him by his AdultFYI.com headlines and occasional on-air rants, I’d agree. But the staff that gave him years of service because we love him and see the magic he brings, consider today a very sad and unfortunate day for the industry. Without any improper acts, broken company policy, criminal wrong doing or any dangerous acts committed, six year veteran Wankus, was treated like a convict, he was not given the opportunity to have a goodbye show for his dedicated fans, favorite guests in the biz, his staff or his Co Hos!—its just sad!"
