As you can see from the accompanying photo, Angelina Valentine, the profilee in this installment of Porn Star of the Week, has had ink done. That’s a topless geisha she’s sporting on her upper left arm. Elsewhere on her body, she’s got a whole pile of tattoos, including a butterfly (small of back), a dragon (left forearm), a rosary (left hand) and the Latin inscription Dios Te Bendiga Bendicion (loosely translated “God Blesses You”, on her lower abdomen).
Born in Lexington, Kentucky in 1986, Valentine is of mixed Italian and Venezulean descent. She’s been active in the adult entertainment industry since 2007, and has appeared in over 120 movies. Apparently, she holds the distinction of being the first gendered female to perform a scene with transsexual porn star Kimber James — who has undergone hormone treatment and several surgeries to feminize her face and body, but who retains fully functioning male genitalia.
As for Valentine, she’s twice undergone surgery to augment her bust — jumping from B to D cup in 2007, and to DD in 2009. I wasn’t able to dig up any information on her off-camera hobbies and interests, but seeing as she hails from the basketball mad state of Kentucky, there’s a good chance that she’s at least a casual supporter of the University of Kentucky Wildcats.
If so, she’s probably pumped to see the NCAA Men’s College Basketball Tournament tip-off this weekend. With a 32-2 record, the Wildcats, who are coached by John Calipari, and led by two dynamic freshman: point guard Marquis Teague and forward Anthony Davis, are the #1 overall seed heading into the 64-team tourney.
Kentucky reached the Final Four last year (losing a 56-55 nail-biter in the semi-final to the eventual champion University of Connecticutt Huskies), and might well do so again. Still, they don’t call it “March Madness” for nothing. Of the four #1 seeds in the different brackets, only Michigan State Spartans won their conference with a 68-64 victory over Ohio State in the Big Ten title game. Like Kentucky, who lost to Vanderbilt 71-64 in the Southeastern conference championship, both the North Carolina Wolfpack and Syracuse Orangemen fell to conference opponents — N.C. to Florida State 85-82 in the ACC title game, and Syracuse 71-68 to Cincinnati in the Big East semi-final.
So there should be plenty of drama before the Final Four meet up in New Orleans March 31-April 2 to crown the National Champion.
