Daily Beast Titillates with Chyna Porn Piece

Every once in a while, Daily Beast staffer Chris Lee helps Tina Brown and co. go for the jugular.

Earlier this month, the former LA Times music writer penned a piece entitled X-Men Sexploits: Tales of Debauchery from the Set, while this spring, it was a Newsweek op-ed about the preponderance in studio films of “full frontal dude-ity.” Now comes a very salacious interview feature with former WWE wrestler Joanie “Chyna” Laurer, who credits hardcore porn with rescuing her from a forlorn life of multiple suicide attempts.

FishbowlLA isn’t sure which is funnier: the earnest declarations by the 40-year-old Laurer over iced tea in west LA, or Lee explaining which sex act is responsible for the title of her X-rated new release. What we do know is that a former fake-sport star is now praising the rejuvenating powers of a staged sex show, despite the fact that she blames some earlier “mental fragility” on a sex tape made with fellow wrestler Sean “X-Pac” Waltman.

But please, don’t confuse 1 Night in Chyna with Backdoor to Chyna. Ms. Laurer insists the latter has helped her feel “relevant” again and even brought about the bonus of a “couple of stalkers.” Must. Wash. Eyes. Now.
