Jenna Jameson will star in a reality TV show about her conversion to Judaism and upcoming marriage in Israel.

Jenna Jameson, who is more popularly known as being one of the most extraordinary adult film star in the industry, is now grabbing the headlines for a completely different reason. The winner of 35 Adult Film Awards over the span of her career of 15 years, she retired from the industry in 2008. Since then, she has been studying the religion of Judaism and cooking full Shabbat meals for her Israeli boyfriend, Lior Bitton, who is a famous diamond merchant.

Even though she always was a devout Catholic, she has publicly stated that her boyfriend is the reason for her converting to Judaism. Even during the filming of the British version of Big Brother, she ate only kosher meat and did not sit with the other housemates while they were eating non-kosher meat. Her meat was also kept in a separate fridge from the other contestants. At one point during the show, she got into an argument with another housemate who has taken her kosher food without asking for her permission, saying that it was “disrespectful of [her] religion.” In addition, she is also studying Hebrew and has desired her wish to visit Israel very soon.

And now, this former adult film star and her equally famous boyfriend will now be the subject of a reality show. The show will follow Jameson as she converts to Judaism before her wedding takes place in Israel.

Jameson’s Israeli fiancé, Lior Bitton has told reports that the show is in its early production stages. He has explained that it will be similar to Keeping up with the Kardashians. It will focus on the couple’s private lives and the show will continue leading up to the day of the marriage ceremony.

In another interview, Bitton, who is 41 years old, has said that it was not easy telling his family the true profession of his partner. It was not easy to tell his mother that he is marrying the queen of porn. In his words, “Look, I didn’t come to my mom and say, ‘I’m dating the biggest porn star in the world.’ I mean, there are porn stars, and then there’s Jenna Jameson,” Bitton said. “At the start, I didn’t tell her who she was. It was a slow process. I let her know in bits and pieces until eventually she was able to accept it. And then it was fine.”

On the other end, Jameson is very excited and hopeful of her new religion. She has been frequently preparing Shabbat meals for her fiancé and also posting all these on her social media accounts. According to her, she feels that she has come a long way in terms of religion.in order to remain firm in your faith, you do not need to read the Bible on a regular basis. All you need to do is keep a firm understanding of the basics. Even though she herself has been extremely Catholic because of her father, she would like to bring up and teach her children in a slightly different manner.

Just finished shooting for channel 2 in Israel ??????????❤️
