Miss USA Drops the Soap -- Takes Up Porn

1/19/2009 3:59 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

She's already nailed the cheesy dialogue -- and now former soap opera villain Kelli McCarty has decided ... she just wants to be nailed.

Launch photos

The former Miss USA 1991 -- yeah, she was a frickin' beauty queen -- has quit the mainstream acting biz for a shot at a career in "adult entertainment."

McCarty, who played maniacal Beth Wallace on "Passions" for seven years, is now a "Vivid Entertainment" girl -- and has just wrapped on her first XXX feature, "Faithless," in which she plays the lead character to a very very supporting cast.

So, why the career move? Here's the explanation -- "I enjoy acting,and I really like sex ... so this was the perfect opportunity to combine two of my passions."

So she is having sex and getting paid for it, big deal,I applaud her honesty, it's her life, her body, her choice, so she didn't want to go back to working at Winndixie at Bodunk wherever she came from, but she still had to pay the bills, again, it is not a career choice that I would want for my daughter but we are not talking about a naive 15year old being forced on the stroll by an evil pimp, this is a presumably sane grown ass woman, my advice would be, take that money and for Godsake don't blow it on plastic surgery and cars this time,

I don't know which would have been a poorer career choice... Passions or Porn?

What a shame! I remember her from Passions. She wasn't too bad. It says on imdb.com that she is still married and has been for a long time. I'm wondering if she is going through some personal problems. Either way for someone who is married and nearly 40 she should really get herself together. Once she does porn, Hollyweird will never take her back. She isn't an A-lister. No one cares.

you need to post a side by side before and after of KC from 1991 to most recent
then post a side by side before and after of pornstar chasey laine (former Vivid "entertainer") from 1991 to most recent
you will notice the downward spiral...
it's like a slowmotion horror slideshow

She is 39 years old. CAREER SUICIDE! Does she think she will make regular films after this? And how many porn years does she have in her? 39 isn't old but it is ancient for a porn star. How low is this woman's self-esteem? This is just tragic.

I find this to be beyond sad. She also looks like a completely different person than when she won Miss USA. You have to wonder if there are drug issues to sink to this.

I don't understand why everyone is being so negative about this. She has done Miss USA, small films, and a soap opera. If Kelli wants to do porn, then why not? Good for her. You go Keli!

To Julian Meteor (Message #9) What do you mean her move to porn has nothing to do with her being a whore? To be in porn, one HAS to be a ho! That's the main job requirement.

"I enjoy acting,and I really like sex ... so this was the perfect opportunity to combine two of my passions."

Translation--"I can't find any REAL acting work anywhere else, because I'm not a good enough actress. So since I'm a slut anyway, I might as well get paid for it."

I wish it was that easy for a guy to be a pornstar.

The Miss USA organization has to be spinning tonight. What a middle finger she has given them. She has to be having massive money or/and drug issues to fall this far from 1991. I'm not a prude but you never think Miss USA would be making hardcore porn. Kind of sad for her.

Get Over It    

Oh get over yourselves people! She represents a lot of women who are comfortable with their sexuality, enough to find pleasure in making porn movies. So what? Many people make home amateur porn, take dirty pix - sex is one of the driving, primal instincts of humans. Porn is a huge industry, and it's people like yourselves that rush out to buy a computer to download porn, or magazines to read it.

Why shouldn't she get paid for it. People want to see beautiful people have sex, why do you think porn is so huge?

It's the double standard again - women who enjoy sex with multiple partners, enjoy giving and receiving pleasure, are 'whores' and 'sluts' while men are 'studs'. Puh-leeze!

She's over 21 years, makes her own decisions - she can make some good money out of this. Do any of you people pay her bills? Well you ain't got nothing to say about her life then!

I say - good for her! She's 39 years old, She had a limited time left in straight film anyway. She's not on the A-list, so kudos to her for stretching out her viability as an adult actress for a good while yet. If she enjoys her work, she can keep working for a long time.
