CNBC Says "Mike South - South is the Nikki Finke of the porn industry. His blog, which is never short on opinion, is a must-read among industry insiders. His style is unique, but he is also a leading agent of change within the industry. There are few fence-sitters when it comes to opinions about South, but no one ignores him."

Kayden Kross Resigns From Digital Playground/Manwin

I am hearing that Kayden Kross told Digital Playground/Manwin to “fuck off” last week.  Not sure where that left things but I do know that she is refusing to shoot for them, even girl/girl scenes which she moved into back in March because she didn’t like the way they were shooting boy/girl scenes.

I […]

Digital Playground Now Hiring From Craigs List

Ya know how I told you that Manwin/Digital Playground let go about half of the production staff?   A former DP employee tipped me to this one.  It turns out the ones that were replaced were replaced with people culled from Craiglist, MOST of whom are working for free as “interns”.

Here is the ad […]

Manwin and Scott Justice Settle With Jules Jordan

Jules sued Manwin, and Scott Justice personally, for the sudden departure and engineered exodus of Scott and over half of Jules staff, and the attempted takeover of many of Jules distributor accounts by Scott and Manwin.

Word I am getting is that Jules got a nice payday on that, 7 figures…One has to wonder […]

Mass Exodus From Digital Playground, Scott Justice Up To His Old Tricks

It all started when Scott Justice took over, and it’s blowing up. Manwin decided to move all the Twistys girls under DP contracts, two of the three said no thanks and bailed, the third, Brett Rossi who is dating Scott Justice chose to stick around.

Now the rumor around the water cooler at Twistys […]

Jesse Jane No Longer Doing Boy/Girl

To make matter even worse over at Digital Playground Jesse Jane is no longer doing boy girl.  Seems the new significant other isn’t comfy with it.

It’s quite the bone of contention with Scott Justice.

 

 

Digital Playground Is Imploding

Even before the Manwin purchase DP was in turmoil, but nothing like it is now.  Sam and Jewn weren’t getting along at all but the employees still had a sense of family, albeit dysfunctional.

The current situation is several fold, for one thing Scott Justice is about to replace RobbyD,  Seems Robby makes a […]

Some Things Never Change, Scott Justice Running Things At Digital Playground

 

 

This is from a reader with some background tossed in by me.

It seems that Manwin’s first major DP feature, a “parody” on Act of Valor, has ended up with a lot of the crew (not sure about talent) not being paid what they were owed. They are in the third-fourth week […]

Riley Steele Leaves Digital Playground

This is interesting, back a few months ago Manwin was gonna quietly let all the contract girls go except Riley, Jesse and Bibi.  Then they decided to just let their contracts run out.

Now in the last two days Riley and Bibi have left porn, supposedly for good.

In yet another video retirement Riley […]

Bibi Jones Retires From Porn

Digital Playground contract girl BiBi Jones announced her retirement from adult performing in a video she posted on YouTube  today.

“I’ve been extremely unhappy the last couple months,” Jones said. “I’m not happy with me. I need to look at the big picture here and everyone knows that porn doesn’t last forever and family […]

What Else Does Manwin Own?

Some people noted that Manwin appears that it only owned Digital Playgrounds web properties back in 2010 and that is likely true, and I knew that but the point was that both Ali (Joone) and Fabian Thyllmann flatly denied any such association even back in Dec of 2011.

Bottom line, they lied.

What strikes […]

Digital Playground Owned By Manwin As Far Back As Sep 2010

Look at this dmca notice I found, note the dates:  Fabian claimed he never had anything to do with DP until Dec of 11  Totally not true…

Digital Playground Black Thursday The Rest Of The Story

Bear in mind that Samantha Lewis was an owner of Digital Playground and when Manwin purchased the company there was an announcement that nothing would change over there, meaning Samantha would keep her current duties, though she was no longer an owner.

When Black Thursday came Samantha got released and so did Peggy and […]

I posted previously about DP releasing Kay Brandt,  Others were involved and at this time I have verified who they were via  inside sources.

Peggy as previously noted was released but not because of the website breach, Peggy was over DVD sales.  Also released was her sister Sue, Samantha Lewis (Yes you read that […]
