Jenna Jameson Converts To Orthodox Judaism?

From Wikipedia:

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 with Grdina, even with in vitro fertilization. Jameson said the in vitro process “wasn’t a good thing for me”; she gained weight and did not get pregnant. According to Jameson, the stresses of the cancer plus infertility led to her marriage’s collapse.[142] In August 2006, Star magazine and TMZ.com confirmed with Jameson’s publicist that she and Grdina had separated.[143][144]

In October 2006, it was reported that Jameson began dating mixed martial artist and former UFC champion Tito Ortiz,[145] whom she met on Myspace.[146] Ortiz canceled a November 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.[147][148] On November 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.[149] On December 12, 2006, Jameson filed for divorce from Grdina.[150] 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.[151] On March 16, 2009, Jameson gave birth to twin boys, Jesse Jameson and Journey Jette.[152][153] Jameson and Ortiz split up in March 2013. Ortiz was granted full custody of the twins.[154]

Jameson’s father, Laurence Henry Massoli, died on October 2, 2010, after suffering complications from triple bypass surgery.[155][156]

As of 2014, Jameson has undergone extensive tattooing, almost completely covering both of her arms in sleeve tattoos.[157] In 2013, self-proclaimed socialite and writer Britney Markham became Jameson’s personal assistant after having met on Twitter. In a 2014 interview with LA Weekly, Markham claimed that Jameson would make requests for drugs. Markham posited that the pills of choice were Xanax, Ambien and Suboxone along with alcohol. At the same time, Markham denied that Jameson had been taking Oxycodone, in spite of previous rumors. Markham stated that she was assaulted and battered by Jameson following an incident in a hair salon in Los Angeles in 2013 when Jameson punched Markham in the stomach with a brass knuckles iPhone case. The blow was so severe, Markham claims she vomited blood and was hospitalized.[157]

On August 5, 2016, Jameson announced that she and her Israeli boyfriend, Lior Bitton, were expecting their first child together.[158]

On November 11, 2016, Jameson announced on her Twitter feed that she completed her conversion to Orthodox Judaism with a Haredi rabbinical court in Upstate New York. Having been raised Catholic,[18] in June 2015, Jameson announced that she was converting to Judaism, in order to marry Bitton.[159][160] In October, an Israel Channel 2 reality television series was announced, which would document Jameson’s conversion.[161]

Political views
After viewing undercover videos of chicken production, Jameson agreed to do a short video for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals as part of the group’s campaign against KFC’s treatment of chickens.[162]

Jameson supported Democrat Hillary Clinton in the 2008 United States presidential election,[163][164] but Republican Mitt Romney in the 2012 United States presidential election, stating: “I’m very looking forward to a Republican being back in office. When you’re rich, you want a Republican in office.”[165] In late November 2015, Jenna made multiple tweets showing support for Donald Trump as the next president of the United States.[166]

Legal issues
On April 26, 2010, Ortiz was arrested for felony domestic abuse at the couple’s Huntington Beach, California home.[167] Jameson was photographed afterward that day with a bandaged arm,[167] 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 allegations that were made toward one another, though as of April 29, 2010, the investigation by the police department remained open.[168]

On May 25, 2012, Jameson was arrested in Westminster, California and charged with three misdemeanor counts for driving under the influence of alcohol or other drugs, driving with a blood-alcohol level over the state legal limit, and driving on a suspended license after her Range Rover struck a light pole. She initially pleaded not guilty to the charges, but later changed her plea to guilty. She was sentenced to three years of informal probation, ordered to pay $340 in fines, and participate in a Mothers Against Drunk Driving victims’ impact panel. The charge for driving without a valid license was dismissed.
