I noticed that Mia Rose and Shelley Lubben are associated with this profile. Sometime after the AEE show I had briefly spoken to Mia over Myspace and she made the suggestion she had stopped performing.
Update: The Myspace Profile has been removed since this story was first posted
Mia Rose posted this on the XPT Forums:
:: sigh :: I hate gossip. Makes me want to piss in peoples eye sockets. : /
I haven’t shot in a very long time, 6 almost 7 months. I haven’t quit. I have just taken an extended break… “Massage school” Not with happy endings.. ” I know you twits were thinkin it” ; ) I actually am booked to do an anal scene for New Sensations next week. Way to come back to work eh? ” Hey Mia! You gonna take it in the ass like a good whore today?” I shall respond with … ” I’m never ready, I don’t even know if I have a sphincter.” for shits and giggles. hahaha no pun. I’m funny.
And the whole f La direct… um, its myspace… I add everyone. and when I got an email from them, I looked and saw I was number one on their list. So, I left a comment saying I have no beef with Derek, La direct, or any of the industry ” give or take a few diva gossip queens” And also made it very clear, that I did not support their cause personally. My comment was deleted. Shortly after, I left another comment saying something to the affect of ” Thanks for starting more rumors, you are now blocked.”
Do what you want, and hate who you want, but don’t drag other people into your shit pile unknowingly. Its just childish. Go back to high school you ninnies.
I had contacted Mia via her Myspace page asking her if she was performing. She read the posting but did not respond to me.
