Her 12-day whirlwind tour ends with a final wrap party on August 28th at Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, in Las Vegas, where Jenna's remarkable career in entertainment began when she was still a teenager.
Meanwhile Rolling Stone magazine readers and VH1 viewers (Monday August 16, 10 pm) are getting up-close and personal insights into Jenna through penetrating profiles released this week. The Rolling Stone article by Vanessa Grigoriadis notes that "Indeed, "Jenna Jameson" is a kind of cultural shorthand for 'porn star,' tossed off casually in HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm and even romantically linked to Britney Spears' in one tabloid-sparked rumor, something they both deny ('I wish,' Jameson says)." Few will resist reading the book after Grigoriadis encapsulates it with this titillating sentence: It "includes revelations ranging from her being raped in Montana as a teenager, to a harrowing account of her addiction to methamphetamine and later Vicodin, to a fling with Marilyn Manson and the size of Howard Stern's member (surprisingly large, though she never spied it unsheathed)."
