Porn legend Jenna Jameson has had a rough time lately. There was that painful-to-watch Good Day New York interview wherein she slurred and stumbled so much that she wound up getting the whole thing cut short, as well as previous incidents with the police including a battery case and a DUI, but now, it seems Jameson’s main problem is money.

After vowing in 2008 to quit the adult film industry that made her a star, Jameson has decided that she must come back to it. In an interview with for “Oprah: Where Are They Now?,” Jameson explained her reasons for leaving porn:

“I made a promise to my children when they were in my tummy that there is no way I could ever, ever, ever go back.”

Yesterday, she told TMZ that she’s recently returned to the adult industry via webcam shows for paying customers online. Why?

“My motivation is taking care of my family. And having fun and meeting all my fans.”

Obviously, most parents work to care for their children. That’s not the depressing thing here. What is depressing is that Jameson retired from doing adult film not just because she wanted to, but because she could; homegirl had a net worth of $10 million. ClubJenna, her website, had revenues of over $30 million. She wrote a bestselling book, has appeared on television dozens of times, spoke at Oxford about the adult industry…she’s been really, genuinely successful. So it is really, really sad that her house was foreclosed on and she has to go back to doing a job she no longer wishes to do, but it’s sad in a strange way.

I’m not judging Jameson for being in porn — that would be ridiculous. In my opinion, the adult film industry is a much more positive force than negative and I think tons of its stars are happy, healthy and proud of what they do (rather than the pathetic, depressing and codependent caricatures the mainstream media often paints them as). I just sincerely do not understand how somebody blows through that much money. I don’t. If you have a clue, please inform me, because I totally do not get it.
