“The format of the series is perfect,” Byron told XBIZ in a previous interview. “Because instead of doing little skits or typical gonzo type scenes, the scenes start out with interviews where I’m holding the mic and I talk to them. We had so much to talk about — especially with Ginger — we talked for 20 minutes. It’s worked out 100 percent better than I thought it would because of the history and conversation.”
Byron performed a rendition of Bon Jovi’s “Dead or Alive” for the raucous crowd at Sardo’s before departing.
On hand for the party was Ireland, who Byron said brought special heat to the scene that they performed for the title. She was accompanied by partner and SexZ Pictures contract director Eli Cross.
Cross stopped to talk about his latest project with SexZ, “Blood of Virgins.” Shooting, which would have begun next month has been pushed back to September in order for the studio to consider options for the film, which may include a mainstream version. He said he also has two more films that will be completed this year.
The evening was cohosted by A! Entertainment’s Tony Batman. Former KSEX Radio DJ and adult personality Wankus brought down the house with improvised lyrics for Billy Joel’s “Piano Man.”
Other industry insiders on hand: performers Lexi Lamour, Dana Dearmond, Jaylynn Rose, Zoe Britton, Precious, Mark Davis, James Bartholet, Gary Moon, director Roy Karch, blogger Gram Ponante, and publicists Wayne Hentai and Jay Moyes.
