HOLLYWOOD — In what is being coined one of the final appearances for Jill Kelly, the prolific porn actress and founder of Jill Kelly Productions, the "Porn Star Ball" (PornStarBall.com) is scheduled for Miami on June 12, and will take place at the Mansion.

Titled the "Slippery When Wet Tour 2004," the event will feature contract girls from JKP and closely follows similar Jill Kelly porn balls in Chicago, Houston, and Denver in May, and then one scheduled for August 14 at the ICE Meta-Club in Las Vegas.

Kelly, who has starred in more than 400 adult movies throughout her career, will be joined by JKP contract girl Tyler Faith, who along with Kelly will help judge the wet T-shirt contest. The winner will take home a $500 and a trip to Las Vegas in August to compete in a finals contest.

According to a JKP spokesperson, Jill Kelly, 32, is phasing out her public appearances to focus her energy on directing films and running JKP, one of the top five adult entertainment companies in the United States. JKP produces and releases hundreds of movies on a yearly basis.

JKP develops, produces, licenses and distributes adult films through retail, cable, satellite, video-on-demand and the Internet. Contract girls include Alexis Amore, Cindy Crawford, Jenna Haze, Tyler Faith, Haven and Ashton Moore.

Earlier this week JKP announced plans to merge with Brooklyn, N.Y.-based Bizarre Video, a highly profitable porn production company founded in 1985. Under the terms of the deal, JKP will combine its content with the Bizarre Video catalog.

JKP Holding Inc. made a public stock offering last month of nearly 30 million shares.
