XBIZ announces Tera Patrick will host 2013 awards show
It has been announced that Tera Patrick will be hosting the 2013 XBIZ Awards. Scheduled for January 11, 2013, XBIZ is promising that this will be its most ambitious awards show to date. Arguably the most successful and popular porn star of all time, Tera Patrick seems like the perfect fit for this role. In addition to being an icon in the adult entertainment industry, Patrick is still able to command headlines and attract mainstream media coverage with all that she does. This will be the second time Tera Patrick has hosted the XBIZ Awards.
To quote from the XBIZ press release…
XBIZ is pleased to announce adult film superstar Tera Patrick as the official host of the industry awards event of the year, the 2013 XBIZ Awards, presented by Fleshlight, on Jan. 11, 2013, in Los Angeles.
Glitz, glamour and the biggest personalities in the world of adult entertainment have made the XBIZ Awards the most prestigious symbol of industry success. The star-studded event attracts A-list movers and shakers of the multibillion-dollar adult entertainment industry, generating buzz throughout the business and mainstream media. With an expanded list of more than 150 award categories, the 2013 XBIZ Awards show is set to feature the most expansive array of honors in the show’s history.
The gala will culminate an unprecedented series of six grand-slam industry events dubbed XBIZ 360°, which gets underway on Jan. 9 in L.A.
Tera Patrick retied from performing and producing in the porn industry back in 2008. However, this year has seen the starlet become more active, working a on a few select projects (including playing Spider-Woman) and performing feature dancing routines that showcase her burlesque skills. And even without her new work, Tera Patrick remains a force in the world of porn. Many of her films still routinely outsell new releases. Additionally, Patrick has the distinction of being the only woman in the history of Earth to be featured on the covers of both Playboy and Penthouse in the same month. On top of all that, Tera Patrick is also a best selling author, having penned the 2009 hit “Sinner Take All“.
The 2013 XBIZ Awards will take place on January 11th. As more information is released, including the full list of nominees and winners, I’ll keep everybody up to speed. In the meantime, feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.
