Nicole Moore Inks Management Deal With Banan

LOS ANGELES — Adult star Nicole Moore has signed an exclusive management and publicity deal with the Lucchese/Banan Entertainment Group Inc. Moore became famous after she appeared on radio and TV programs, such as Howard Stern’s show, as “the house painter in the buff.”

Moore, who is originally from Israel, would paint homes in the nude, using her body parts. According to publicist Steve Banan, Stern once asked the Israeli, “What’s a nice Jewish girl like you doing in porn?”

Moore has appeared in mainstream as well as adult venues. Banan, who is the CEO of the Lucchese/Banan Entertainment Group Inc., told XBiz that when Moore was 17 years old, she became a runway model in France. She went on to dance at the Moulin Rouge, the risqué Parisian nightclub popularized in the 2001 Nicole Kidman movie of the same name.

Moore’s website states that her credits include appearances on The E! Channel, the BBC, “Ripley’s Believe It or Not,” as well as Stern’s broadcast. In 1998, Moore appeared in her first adult movie, “A Taste of Nicole,” which was made for Banan’s then-production company. Moore also worked as an escort.

Banan represented Moore for about four years.

“Around 2002, Nicole went out on her own,” Banan told XBiz. For two years she was represented by another agency. During this period, Moore and Banan – who are married – were separated.

However, Moore and Banan seem to have reunited professionally and personally.

“We are handling her management and publicity for her adult and mainstream work,” Banan said, adding that he and Moore are also back together again as a couple.

Moore is about to embark on a European tour where she will shoot movies for production companies on location in France, England, Italy, and Cyprus.

Banan broke into the adult scene back in 1977 when he became the manager of Plato’s Retreat, the fabled on-premises swingers’ club in Manhattan. Banan has been a publicist for more than 60 adult stars, including Jessica Drake and Jewel De’Nyle. Banan is currently partnering with Ron Jeremy on barnaclebillthesailor.
