Penthouse Owner: Leave Bill Clinton Alone

Penthouse Owner: Leave Bill Clinton Alone

Marc Bell, the private-equity mogul who owns Penthouse, thinks the whole Bill-Clinton-posing-with-porn-stars business has gotten out of hand.

“It’s unfortunate that a harmless picture has gotten so much play,” Bell told ABC News in a phone interview from Monaco on Friday.

Bell was at the Monte Carlo gala, a fundraiser for the Prince Albert Foundation and the Clinton Foundation, where porn actresses Brooklyn Lee and Tasha Reign posed with Clinton in a photo first reported by TMZ. The two actresses attended as Bell’s guests.

Lee and Reign told TMZ they had wandered near Clinton in the hopes of meeting him. A Secret Service agent shooed them away, the actresses said, but Clinton told the agent to call them back over.

Bell seemed frustrated with the notion, which he insinuated that media reports have fed, that the photo signified anything untoward. He was not with Lee and Reign when the photo was taken, but he said they had met Clinton earlier in the evening.

“They were just guests at a party,” Bell said. “It wasn’t done for publicity, it wasn’t done for malice, it was done because they thought it was really cool to meet the president.”

the SS agent realized the impropriety of the situation (probably recognized the porn stars), Clinton did not...stay classy, Bill.

If the Penthouse brand were to disappear today and never be heard from again, my life would not be changed at all.

I will say, that if I did find the magazine interesting, I would avoid it like the plague anyway. I wouldn’t support this ass and his organization in any way.

Is the same magazine which published false and scurrilous ads about Jerry Falwell?

Dear Marc:
Shut up. No one cares what a pornographer thinks.

Not harmless. Porn is one of the most harmful things that is destroying our society

He didn’t even know who they were. When he met them, he had no idea who they were. They were there not under their stage names. They were there under their real names,” Bell said.

He sure as hell knew how they were dressed

To be fair, even people who like porn probably wouldn't notice if Penthouse disappeared. That magazine hasn't been relevant since 1981.

Back when I was in my early twenties I found Penthouse to be more crude than Playboy. I was never a big fan of porn anyway. It has always seemed to me that clothing enhanced beautiful women, and leaving a little to the imagination was actually a good thing.

Then Larry Flint destroyed any good thoughts I could have had about the organization to boot, so it was a lost cause from my perspective.

It pretty much went like this: Hugh Hefner paid them to take their clothes off. Bob Guccione paid them more to open their legs just a little bit and Larry Flynt, well, he showed the world that drug-addled trailer trash will do anything for money!

It’s hard to call ‘Hustler’ even sexually titillating, it’s more like a guide for gynocologists.
