(LOS ANGELES, CA) -- Julia Parton, once tabloid fodder for her rumored connection to a certain country-western songstress, said her goodbyes to the world of adult entertainment on February 22nd, 2001, with a final live performance on Danni's Hard Drive (www.danni.com). But don't think you've heard the last from her just yet!
At the urging of close friends and various publishing houses, Parton has finally agreed to bring the story of her life to the printed page. "Saving Jezebel" will cover the icon's gamut of professions including feature dancer, magazine publisher, photographer, adult film actress, B-movie legend, and more. It also promises to expose her most personal traumas, leading up to the automobile accident that nearly ended her life in December of 1999. "The year I spent recovering from the injuries was the first time I ever sat still long enough to question where I was and how I got there. I came to realize I wasn't very happy with where I'd ended up," says Parton.
To assist her in transcribing the tell-all, "Saving Jezebel" will be Parton's story as told by Jason Sechrest. "I've known Jason for years and have always loved the work he's done as a journalist," explains Parton, "but it wasn't until he interviewed me recently for a retrospective piece on my career that I realized how comfortable I felt talking to him. I've had such a hard time finding someone I wanted to tell my story to, but during our interview it became very clear to me that he was who I wanted. I have a lot of very personal, somewhat shocking stories to reveal and the great thing about Jason is that he's not easily shocked and he will never judge you. He's a lot like me actually. We both want to say similar things with this book."
Parton and Sechrest are interested in opening readers' minds towards sexuality and the adult genre, while giving the industry's newcomers a list of dos and don'ts. Sechrest says: "Julia learned a lot of life's lessons the hard way and she is genuinely interested in giving the next round of starlets a guide to follow. Her life has been a roller coaster and my hope is that anyone who gets on that ride via her story comes away from it with a new perspective on women in her profession. I think the majority of the population tends to view women like her as being very one-dimensional. If anyone is going to break that stereotype with their life story, it's going to be Julia."
"Saving Jezebel" is tentatively set for an early 2002 release.
