RENNA: I started with a little agent in Florida. After a while, my friend Bill Fisher who was with Club Jenna at the time referred me to A-List Talent.
RAY: How old are you?
RENNA: I’m 21. I’m married and I have a son. The last thing I remember, I was 19. [Laughs] I spent a year being pregnant and having my child and never leaving my house. The next thing I know, I’m 21.
RAY: You used to roll with a certain girl we all know and love.
RENNA: Oh god… You’re going to bring her up.
RAY: Can you blame me?
RENNA: The name Risi Simms is never going to go away. Ok, let me straighten this out for the record. Risi and I worked really well together. We started porn at the exact same time. We shot InTheVIP.com with my boyfriend at the time. We were going to do a solo site together, in fact. We were going to do boy/girl scenes. The whole site was going to be about us. When I tell you this girl is crazy — I mean she is really crazy. She will tell you that she hates the industry, that she never enjoyed it, and that she never made friends with anybody in the industry. Well, let me tell you — The girl lived with me. Then later I paid for her hotel room because she didn’t have a place to live. She’s just crazy. It’s one of those situations that never seems to die.
RAY: Ok, let’s move beyond that. Why did you decide to get into porn?
RENNA: I was in college at the time. I was dating this guy for about a year that I really liked, but he was constantly ignoring me. So I eventually told him to fuck off. I didn’t want to move back in with my parents. I always wanted to shoot porn, so I decided to do it. I wanted to make my own money and move out.
RAY: Why did this guy ignore you?
RENNA: He was obsessed with video games. All we did was go to school and then immediately start playing games. I ended-up hanging out with all my other roommates more than I did with him.
RAY: How old was he?
RENNA: My age. We went to prom together. He was a cool guy, but he just wasn’t very interested in sex. That’s where we differed!
RAY: What are your current projects?
RAY: What did you do before you got into porn?
RENNA: I went to school for psychology. I lived off my scholarships and was a waitress. I’m still in school now, but I’m going for biomedical science.
RAY: What are your thoughts on Swine Flu?
RENNA: [Laughs] Well as a mom, it worries me. But scientifically-speaking, a lot more people die from the common flu. I think it’s mostly hype.
RAY: I’m looking at your website now. You’ve got some nice updates on there.
RENNA: Thank you! I work really hard on it. It’s doing surprisingly well for only being up such a short time.
RAY: I see a lot of solo and girl/girl on there, but I also see a wiener. I assume that’s your husband?
RENNA: Yes! [Laughs] That’s his wiener. He’d be very mad if it wasn’t. I’m focusing on solo and girl/girl, but I will be incorporating more boy/girl. The other big focus of my site is outdoor nudity — As much as I can get away with. I love natural lighting. I’m too cheap to buy good artificial lighting!
RAY: You looked great on Amateur Allure as “Lola”.
RENNA: Oh yes! Thomas is the master. His lighting and his set-up is amazing. He made me jealous.
RAY: What’s something about you most people wouldn’t expect?
