Luckily for the Internet, comedian and writer Jenn Tisdale was at the ready. After flying to New York and shooting a scene with Deen inside of her hotel room, Tisdale recounted her experience in an article , which has now been circulating around the Internet, making its way onto sites like Jezebel and The Huffington Post. Serial Optimist caught up with Jenn last week and chatted with her about Investigation Discovery , how hard grocery shopping is and not porn. Just kidding, of course we talked about porn. Serial Optimist: Thank you for postponing your grocery trip to chat with me! SO: I know! I have the same problem.

Remember, about two months ago, when James Deen created a section on his website for would-be sex partners to apply to bang him, provided they were willing to do so on camera? Well, that was real. After he left I felt really good. There are few words in the English language more annoying than the word empowered. Imagine that feeling but swap it out for a different word because I would sound like a complete asshole if I used it.

Responding to an open casting call from porn star James Deen back in September. Tisdale wasn't even sure if the Tweet was legitimate, but she decided to respond for fun—she definitely didn't think she would actually hear about it ever again. But then Deen's "model coordinator" e-mailed Tisdale a few hours later, asking if she wanted to shoot a scene in New York City with him.
