VIVID STUDIO INSIDER FOR OCTOBER 23rd 2015
WONDER WOMAN XXX MAKES AN EARLY DEBUT Vivid is getting credit for introducing its Wonder Woman XXX parody before the debut of the mainstream Wonder Woman feature. The headline in the MajorSpoilers.com story on the new Axel Braun movie was direct: “Vivid gets Wonder Woman flick first.” The article by Jackie Trigger noted that “once again, the adult film industry has beaten Hollywood to the punch in bringing comics biggest heroes to the screen. In this case, Vivid Entertainment has announced the Wonder Woman XXX parody by Axel Braun is finally available…While parody generally invokes thoughts of laughter, many of the adult films have featured more straight (pardon the pun) storylines that lead to sex, rather than laugh filled romps through the bedroom. Though if you’ve seen Ron Jeremy try to play the Penguin, there are quite a number of laughs to be had. ‘With Wonder Woman XXX we really wanted to have some fun,’ said Braun. ‘Despite the moody lighting and dramatic settings, this is a really hilarious, tongue-in-cheek movie, with a phenomenal Kimberly Kane in the lead role purposely overacting every line with a straight face and Ryan Driller pulling double duty as both Superman and the inept super villain Angleman. Everything about the movie is slightly over-the-top and that’s just what makes it totally awesome.’”
KAYDEN KROSS INTERVIEWED BY 88MILESWEST.COM The popular mainstream website 88MilesWest.com conducted a lengthy interview with adult star and director Kayden Kross on the occasion of her feature appearance at Vivid Gentlemen’s Club in Houston.

I’ve never seen a reception at a club by a crowd such as the one for you tonight.” Cooper asked Kayden how she has managed to stay at the top of the adult industry over the years and avoid the negativity that marks some adult careers. Her reply, “I have never been just for hire anywhere, anytime.” She said she picks her movies and appearances carefully, and “right now my dance card is pretty full.” She also said that she tries always to act in and direct movies that have a story line and character development because “no matter how hot the scene is, it needs tension to create a second level that makes it even hotter.” The full interview is available on YouTube.com.

Because I didn’t.’ In fact, Rose doesn’t think her story is that different from Kim Kardashian’s. ‘So don’t think you’re better than me,’ she said, ‘because we’ve all had trials and tribulations.’” Coverage of Amber’s comments and her reference to the best-selling Vivid tape was widespread, including The Daily Mail, the Daily Read List, Hollywood Life, Huffington Post, CeleBuzz.com and TooFab.com among others.
