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."

So You Think You Are A Porn Star

I’ve heard the arguments a million times before, who is the best known porn star blah blah…I usually hear Jenna Jameson, Tracy Lords, Marilyn Chambers and sometimes Ron Jeremy.

Now I track all the news outlets I have alerts that come into my email everytime google crawls a site and certain keywords appear in a story.

For the last week, every single day someone reports on Ron Jeremys status, AP, UPI, CNN. ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox, the New York times Reuters you name it EVERY single one of them has reported on Ron Jeremy’s hospitalization. and all of them more than once.

For those that aren’t following me…THAT is porn stardom.

I met Ronnie my very first year in the biz at the Tampa Show, this was back in the early 90’s, Ronnie made me feel like I was just as much in the biz as he was but one thing stood out….He never forgot me, the next time I saw him was a year later and he knew who I was and what I did, even though he is in L.A. and I am in Atlanta. We went on to become friends, we have hung out, played practical jokes on each other, I once ate cheesecake off of his plate in Florida.

Ron Jeremy Porn legend

Mike south nabs a bite of cheesecake off of Ron jeremys plate.

Ronnie once paid for my dinner even.  How many people can say THAT?

My point here is Ronnie is the real deal, he has always been very cool with me and he is my friend, I wish him the best, I know it sucks being in a hospital, he may not know yet, word is he is still not conscious but my thoughts and my best wishes go out to him, he is a real porn star and a true legend and a nice guy.

I hope he reads this soon and the memories  make him smile

God bless ya Ronnie hang in there man! I love ya brother.
