Tenere Williams Interviews AdultFYI’s Favorite MILF, Mellanie Monroe

from www.tenerewilliams.com- I know I’m takin it back with the video above, but truer words could not have been said regarding “The Dirty South’s Girl Next Door”, Mellanie Monroe. The giggly, blonde haired Houston native has one of those Hollywood type stories that has led her to stardom in the adult industry.

A former retail store manager, Double M’s (her initials, not her boob size…although it could be her booty size if booties were measured in cup sizes…I’m just sayin…) crazy journey included: putting on weight (she got up to 225 lbs), then losing 87 lbs, breaking up with a former boyfriend then taking a trip to Miami for a fun weekend that forever changed her life.

Her shape and build have made her uber popular among the urban and bootyologist communities (she was the only white cheerleader on her squad at an all-black high school…nuff said…) and her love of hip hop has led her to being mentored by G-Unit, which of course is headed by hip hop and business mogul, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson. Appearing in numerous adult videos, co-hosting multiple radio shows on Sirius XM, feature dancing around the country, appearing at the 2013 EXXOTICA convention in Atlantic City and launching her website on May 1, 2013, its an understatement to say the girl is puttin’ in work.

And despite her chaotic schedule, she couldn’t be a nicer person. Her downhome, friendly, Southern charm makes you feel like you’re hangin’ out with a childhood friend who loves her Southern roots, a nice pair of Jordans, good Tex Mex food and her 42 inch backside that you can see from the front (thank you Mos Def for that line….). She loves her fans, and if you see her out and about, you better not, NOT say anything to her. As a side note, don’t be alarmed if you see a lot of booty references, its just the nature of the beast.

So sit back for a great interview with the one and only, Mellanie “Like Whoa!”Monroe.

Q: So you’re originally from Florida, right?

Actually, when I started in the adult industry I was living in Miami. I was living there for 8 months so everyone tends to think I’m from there. One story can turn me from a 25 year old big booty dancer into a 42-year old Cougar in 20 seconds! (laughs) So yeah, I started my adult performer career in Miami, but I was born and raised in Houston,Texas.

Q: Oh, so you’re a southern girl…

I am! A big ol’ southern girl! A pleaser!

Q: I don’t know what’s in the food or drink down there but that place produces some beautiful people of all races…

Well, my mom used to say everybody’s pretty from down here because all the Miss America’s and USA’s are from Texas. Remember when all the pageant winners were from Texas? So that’s what my mom used to say so it must be true. (laughs)

Q: Being from Texas, one was one of the first things you had to get used to culturally?

Well, I used to work for Lacoste so I moved to Miami from Texas for work and for the 8 months I was there, I got used to the faster lifestyle. But after one crazy week in Miami where I shot 2 Bang Bros and 2 Reality Kings movies, one week later they packed’em up and moved me to LA, like “You’re gonna do porn!” (laughs)

So I quit my job at Lacoste and came to LA and moved straight to the Valley so I didn’t really get theHollywood, materialistic, what-can-you-do-for-me vibe. I just went right into the who porn community and that was different for me because there’s so many different types of porn people but it was easy for me to get used to because I am a Texas girl and my southern sweetness got me a long way! I think when you’re genuinely a nice person, you can go far. So it didn’t really hit me that hard since I had just come from Miami.

Q: Yeah, if you’re not used to that, between LA and Miami, that lifestyle can hit you in a real way…

But I had so much fun leaving my hometown, going to Miami, getting wild and crazy and then one being like, ‘I’m gonna shoot a porn…’ and then having the time of my life then shooting another one and another one and then move to LA…it was all so spontaneous and I was having the time of my life. Now here I am 4 years later, about to launch my website and I couldn’t picture myself doing anything else.

Q: Since you did spend some time in the corporate world, once you entered the adult industry, sdid you have any former co-workers trying to hit you up and “hang out”?

I was a Manager so there were a few of my former employees that are still my biggest fans and no matter where I travel to in the world, they still check on me. And a lot of people that were my friends during that time are still my friends today. Especially a lot of the guys. They tend to be my biggest fans…

Q: Somehow that’s not a big surprise to me…

(laughs) But it doesn’t feel weird or awkward because I’m so excited about it and everyone knows they can just be honest and comfortable around me which is the one cool thing about being a porn star is we don’t hold back so people don’t hold back with us. But my former co-worker have been so supportive and are huge fans. I haven’t had anyone be like, ‘What the heck are you doing??’

Q: Now you’re listed at 5’9” is that correct?

With my Louboutins on!! (laughs) Well, when I throw on my heels to go out in New York City, I measure in at 6’1”. So that puts me at about 5’7” or 5’7 ½” ish!

Q: So are you he type that has to always be with a guy that’s taller than you?

Even though I’m tall, I date guys of all heights. Its about what’s inside. (laughs)

Q: There you go…sounding like a Hallmark card.

(laughs)

Q: Because you’re tall, does that make doing your scenes easier or harder?

At my height, no tattoos, and a booty that measures at 42 inches, the whole look works great for me because it puts me in a whole bunch of different niches. They can put me with a young, 20 year old skinny, short guy and he can be my son’s best friend or my stepson. Or they can put me with a guy that’s my height for a cool romantic scene.

Or they can put me with the big strong guy and make it like a workout video, which have been very popular lately. So because of the look and build, I can play a lot of different roles. I have some guys that can lift me up and carry me around and then I have guys that I can lift up and carry around! (laughs) So it works.

Q: I’ve heard you mention that in the first scene you did, you were more worried about the acting part of it than the actual sex part. But isn’t acting part of the job?

My very first scene was a foursome with Adriana Deville, Carlo and another actor that I don’t remember! (laughs) So that was for Ass Parade and there wasn’t really a script or anything but it was the next day when I had to act for MILF Hunter and I had to sneak into a Home Depot in Miami and act like a hot housewife that needed help loading up her car with wood for whatever I needed it for.

But the acting can be a lot of pressure cuz sometimes they’ll throw a script at you the day off and learn it all in 30 minutes. So the first time I had to act I was extremely nervous. There was a lot of cuts and takes. Once I got to the sex I was fine. But the lines and the camera and all that stuff, I had never done any acting before so that was interesting but over time, the more you do it, the more comfortable you get with it. And all the porn stories now are in the same style so you’re pretty much always ready for whatever they may throw at you.

Q: Anything from that first scene that you learned that you’ve taken with you?

Well that first scene was Ass Parade with Bang Bros and they’re known for taking tons and tons of pictures. So I couldn’t walk two days after the shoot and it wasn’t because I had my back banged out but because they were taking pictures of my butt for two hours! So I basically learned all the amazing poses I can do with my ass. All I heard for 2 hours straight was, ‘Arch it more! Arch it more! Give me more arch Mellanie!’ So listening to that for two hours, I learned a lot about poses in general and knowing what looks and feels right for shoots. So I’ve gotten ass poses down perfect! (laughs)

Q: You’re known for having an ample backside. Have you always had that or was it the Southern food or did you feed it supplements directly or did you have to workout to get that buh-donk-a-donk?

(laughs) At age 15, when I started cheerleading, was when I realized I had a bigger butt than most people and that’s when big butts were coming into style. I went to an all black high school and had the same Spanish boyfriend during those years and then 12 years after that. But during that time, I learned to love and appreciate my big ass. Had I grown up somewhere else, I may have been insecure about it. But I figured it out at 15 when my butt was hanging out and everybody would be like, “DAAAAMN!!”

Q: I know having gone to an all black high school, the guys were probably like, ‘That thing is awesome!’

And our cheerleading squad had eight black girls, two Spanish girls and then me in the middle! And I never ever doubted my ass! (laughs) I’ve always embraced and then when J. Lo came along she helped make it more popular so I grew up right on time! But you know what, all the white girls have big booties in Texas. We eat cornbread and meat and other hearty stuff! If you go to the Tex Mex places with all the flour tortillas, fajitas , and nachos they feed us….Whooooo!

Q: (laughs) You’re crazy! But it does seem like a real thing that those southern girls are no joke! Now what’s the funniest or most embarrassing thing that’s happened to you on set?

Well, I’m a green juicer and a health nut and am gradually becoming more comfortable with that stuff and releasing gas during a movie doesn’t faze me like it used to! (laughs) the best times are when there’s a couple actors and the storylines are really funny like when I’m the housewife and I’m telling my husband that he’s just not doing it for me and all of a sudden, Captain-Save-a-Ho will jump out from somewhere with a cape on and Underoos and those are the kind of things that get you giggling.

I giggle during sex anyways, I can’t help it! So once you get that giggle going, that means you’re doing good. Some guys take it the wrong way, but it’s a good thing. But some of the funny mishaps that happen on a porn set from normal human things are hilarious. Now that I think of it, the most embarrassing thing that’s happened was my first scene at kink.com in San Franciscoand I was doing a scene with James Deen. So they tie me up spread eagle on the couch, which took like 40 minutes for this particular shot because everything was so intricate with the ropes, and they’re all ready to shoot and I’m like, ‘I gotta pee.’ And there’s like 20 people around and they’re like, ‘Mellanie, we can’t undo you.’ So they brought me a bucket and I peed spread eagle on a couch in front of everybody.

Q: Wow!

Yeah, for a while that was my most embarrassing moment. Now its really hard to embarrass me but that was it for awhile. And at the same time I’m spread eagle on a couch, remember, this was my first time there, this girl comes by on a stretcher in the hallway screaming, and I was like, ‘What the hell is going on? I though people didn’t get hurt here.’ And it ended up that the girl was doing a scene and she got a ginger root stuck up her ass and they had to take her to the hospital.

Q: Oooooh!

(laughs) Kink is awesome! It’s the only porn company with health insurance (laughs).

Q: Were you like, ‘That WON’T be happening to me. Not to down with the ginger roots’…

Yeah that was a crazy day and I said I would never put anything in my butt or do anal. Of course that all about to change in the next couple of weeks but my first day at kink.com was a very crazy and embarrassing day.

Q: Have you ever had an awkward moment with fan while you’ve been out doing normal stuff like having dinner or grocery shopping?

I actually get angry when fans see me out and then they’ll Tweet me later that they saw me and I’m like, ‘Well how come you didn’t come up and say hi!’ That’s why I do it. I do it so you guys can wank all day and be happy so you have to come up and say hi to me. But on New Years Eve in Vegas a couple years ago, I was hangin out with some rappers and celebs and some dude comes running up and they thought he was coming up for them and he came runnin’ straight to me and was like, ‘Oh my gosh Mellanie, I fuck you every night!’ And that’s exactly how he said in front of all those people! So I thought it was pretty great.

Then, the first time I went grocery shopping when I moved to New York, the manager came up to me and was like, ‘Everyone in here is your biggest fan. Whatever, you need let me know. If you need a hookup in the meat department, let me know.’ (laughs) It’s always been positive experiences with my fans but sometimes it is a little strange to see guys get super excited. But I love it!

Q: Sometimes people forget that you’re a human being too. Ever had an instance where anyone has stepped over the line and been disrespectful to you in terms of something they did or said?

Fortunately that stiff has never happened. I mean I’ll get people who say stuff like, ‘Oh my God your ass looks even bigger in person!’ but its silly stuff like that but its never over the line for me cuz I’m over the line! So it works!

Q: Now I read in a another interview where you said that you don’t date or ‘get a lot of action’ in your personal life. Some how I would find that hard to believe…

Well, in the beginning that was true. I was workin A LOT. I was shooting at least 4-5 scenes per week for 6 months so I didn’t really have a lot of time to date in my personal life. And then for awhile, I was moving at a regular pace but you it was one of those things that you never knew the intentions of the guy. Was he dating me because I was a porn star or did he really like me and want to get to know the real me?

As a result I‘m very picky and choosy when it comes to that kinda stuff so I just hung out with my friends from the radio. Now, its completely impossible because I’m focused on launching my website on May 1 so basically I’m saying ‘no boys’. And once I start focusing, things start to fall into place. It’s been great in New York with the radio and the music videos because its been giving me all the buzz I need in New York. I just shot one of the hottest scenes where I basically had an all blond slumber party orgy and so I shot it for my site. So I had a whole lot of hot blondes and we had a big orgy. Then the other day, the Nike rep gave me some brand new Jordans that guys can’t even get right now…

Q:Wait, whaaaat? A girl knowing about some Jordans?!! That’s what I’m talking about!

Yeeeeah! So I did a scene in my new Crimson J’s and I never took them off and did a cool little workout scene. So now the guys way first be wanking at the shoes, then wank at me! (laughs)

Q: And what the deal with girls keepin their shoes on when doin’ the dirty?!!

Sometimes girls will have raggedy feet and they need to keep their shoes on! (laughs)

Q: Ooooooh noooo!!

But sometimes it’s a fantasy for men because most of your housewives are never going to have on heels so it’s that fantasy to see a girl in heels doing that cuz its sexy. For me, I’ll leave them on as long as I can and as soon as the director is not paying attention, I’m gonna kick’em off so I can get the leverage I need cuz I mean there’s ass throwin’ back…I need my feet. I keep my toes lookin right so I can do that. Sometimes they try and keep them on because it adds color to the scene and whatever but as soon as I can, I kick’em off.

Q: (laughs) You are crazy! This girl said, “I need to get leverage”. That statement right there lets me know someone’s about to go hard…

(laughs)

Q: You seem to be in phenomenal shape. Other than putting in work between the sheets, what other working out do you do?

Where do I begin?!! Well, I’m a member of Equinox so no matter I travel there’s a Equinox gym I can go to. I like doing the Boot Camps, I like going and doing the day workouts for strangers, the kickboxing, the hip hop dance classes. I take everything. I’ll literally go to a different Equinox in Manhattan and try everything. I suck at Yoga but anything fast paced I’m gonna win!

Q: Do you ever focus on butt exercises or is that just God given?

No, I do work it out so I do tons of squats. And you don’t even realize it but when you’re doing a scene, but you’re doing a lot of squatting and holding and I’m usually sore the next day. But I’m not gonna be lazy and let the guy do all the work. If I’m on top, sometimes you can kinda just hold yourself there and he’ll work underneath but I want it to look really cool and I want to pop my back so I end up doing a lot of squats in scenes. But a lot of times, those classes will do total body workouts. I don’t want my booty to fall!

Q: Now before you got into the industry, I read you weighed at one point up to 225 lbs. Tell me about that.

When I was 26, that was the end of that 12 year relationship I mentioned earlier that I started when I was 15. I guess over the years I got comfortable but I did get up to 225. So it took me a year and I lost 87 lbs and once I lost the weight I was like, ‘I want to start a new life.’ I was playing tennis and running and that was back when the Subway diet started so that was cool. (laughs) By 27, I was feelin hot, movin around, I was workin at Lacoste and every guy that came in…lets just say it was great for my commission! (laughs)

Q: Since you’re all healthy now, do you still have a guilty pleasure?

Oh gosh! I have a Starbucks addiction. You know when you go in Starbucks an there’s always something in that coucher, there’s always something glowing. So that’s where I cheat is at Starbucks.

Q: Any southern comfort food you miss?

Well, my mom is also a health nut and being that I’m trying to eat so well, there’s nothing I really miss, but there are times when I go to my moms that she’ll pull the crock pot out and make beans and rice and get my carb overload (laughs). If I’m really feeling naughty, I’ll hit up some of the soul food places in LA and I’ll get my sweet potatoes, greens and fried chicken but its very rare now that I do that. I don’t really crave that stuff like I used to, which is a good thing.

Q: Now, you mentioned that you get play parts ranging from 25 year old hot girl to 42 year old MILF. But I don’t picture you as a MILF. I thought MILF’s were people in their 40’s.

Well, the general rule in porn is once you hit 25, the directors are ready to put you in the MILF movies because the MILF category is the most popular and sells the most. If you’re a hot new girl and looking to build your career, they’re going to immediately throw you in MILF movies because it’s a more popular genre over the teens, believe it or not. Cougar is the one that starts at 40. I consider myself a Cougar in training and I’ll be way more outta control than I am now! (laughs)

Q: Now I got this interview through your PR firm, Star Factory, which is run by the legendary adult star Tanya Tate. Has she helped you at all in terms of the business side of the industry?

I just recently hired Star Factory but she’s definitely been instrumental in setting me up radio interviews and contacts with people that I wouldn’t necessarily know. I did a couple Shay 45 interviews and other DJ’s on Hip Hop Nation on Sirius XM. I haven’t done Howard Stern yet but I don’t think I’m that style of girl. (laughs).

By networking whether through radio, parties, video, and being a hip hop head in general, I made headway inNew Yorkand created a buzz for myself and that’s why now is the perfect time to launch my website. But Tanya has really helped me in LA in terms of contacts and keeping my career going. And now that my site’s about to launch, I’m going to be traveling back and forth to LA more and shooting more scenes.

Q: Of the sets you’ve been on, what’s the worst shoot you remember?

I had a really bad day one day with another porn actor. It was just an overall negative vibe on set. I can’t really take super big penises and there are a few people that are just too big for me and they didn’t tell me this particular actor was going to be an asshole. Usually the guys with super big penises are super sweet.

Take Shane Diesel, the sweetest guy in the world. But then there’s a couple big huge penises that are jerks. So I had a bad day and just could really take this guy and they were like, ‘Well you’re not gonna get your whole paycheck if you don’t finish the whole scene.’ I found out later that they’re known for booking girls at a certain rate knowing that you’re not going to be able to take it or you might quit early and then they get you once you’re there like, ‘Well, we’re not gonna pay you because you didn’t do the whole scene.’ So that was my one bad experience, everything else has been so much fun. I never have a problem. We joke around all day and its just a fun time.

Q: How much of the scenes are acting and how much of it is you really enjoying what’s going on?

I would say 95% of the time, I’m having a blast. Everyone’s usually in a good mood. I mean, we get to have sex on camera and have orgasms and leave with a paycheck! So again, I don’t have bad days, I’m Little Miss Sunshine fromTexas. Its funny though because I’m an OG in the lesbian game and am the queen of teaching scissors so they always put the younger girls with me cuz I’ll teach a lot of these young girls the in and outs of porn. I’m like the den mom at strip club!

You’d be amazed that there’s a lot of girls that don’t know the technique of Scissors and I’m amazing at it. That’s my forte! (laughs) It was always a fantasy of mine to be with a woman but I never had an outlet for it or had the balls to flirt with a woman. But in porn…sheeeewt!! I’m just grabbing these young girls and ridin’em till I cum and they don’t know what to do! (laughs)

Q: What something about yourself that your fans wouldn’t necessarily know unless you said something about it?

I’m so open about everything but I do have this secret thing I’ve been doing where I was dating most of the rappers here in New York. I didn’t have sex with a lot of them but I was just trying to get the notches under my belt. (laughs) That’s been fun but now I’m working with a lot of them so it’s a different story and I don’t kiss and tell but I had a lot of fun.

Q: Impressive that you dated but didn’t sleep with them…

Well, most of them…not all! (laughs) I kept giving them the Irish goodbye like, ‘I’m going to the bathroom…’ and I’d be out. But being a fan of a lot of the artists and now to have things change and have them be your fans has been a secret fantasy for me.

Q: Now you traveled around and did feature dancing, what city always came out to support you full force?

Well, the places where they don’t get a lot of porn stars is where you’ll see the biggest turnouts. With my body type and build places like Charlotte and Raleigh in North Carolina always have huge turnouts cuz they’re excited for you to be there. North Carolina is always fun. I went to Des Moines,Iowa and had a nice turnout in 4 feet of snow. It’s always the smaller towns that you have the most fun in. Me and my friend Austin Tailor did an event in Detroit. So yeah, it’s a good time! Once I launch my site, I’m gonna start doing more feature dancing so I can get out more and meet my fans. I love meeting the guys that I pleasure.

Q: When was the last time your butt or boobs got you outta trouble?

Well, I never really get into trouble. As long as I smile and giggle, I’ve never had to use my body parts to get out of trouble. I do use my body parts often traveling since I do have my own business, I have to spend my own business account money so I will get the rental car that’s like $10.99/day and walk up to the countre, pull my shirt down real low and be like (in a high pitched voice), ‘Can you give me the upgrade?’ and then drive off in the big black suburban for $10/day! (laughs)

Q: I appreciate the honesty like, ‘Yeah, I’ll do it for the upgrade…’

Yep!

Q: Within the industry, who are people you’ll hang out with when not on set?

One of my best friends is Austin Tailor. We’re both big booty blondes. I’ll even babysit her kids. And I know people will be like ,’You babysit children?’ but I can’t even get her kids to be bad! She my best friend in porn so we hang out a lot. Also, I’m also sponsored by Munkey Bars (www.munkeybars.com) which is a weightlifting belt with handle bars and I hang out with a lot of people that represent the Munkey Bars company. We’re all like a big family and when I’m in LA they have a BBQ every Sunday. So that’s who I hang around.

Q: Ever thought about getting behind the camera and doing some directing?

I actually have already been directing in a sense because I‘ve been directing some of the scenes I’ve done. Like that slumber party scene, I set up the concept and what we were gonna do and everything. Cuz when it’s for your site, you can do things the way you want it. I actually produced, directed and starred in it. Once I identify girls who are going to be successful, I’m really good at teaching them the ropes. But I’ll definitely be putting together some scenes that I’m not in and putting them up on my site.

Q: If you could have any superpower, but that superpower would have to be used in the bedroom, what would that superpower be?

I would want to read people’s minds. I think that’d be pretty cool.

Q: That’s crazy because 90% of the answers to that question among females is “Reading the mind” What’s up with that?!

Ya know there’s honest Joes who will tell you, ‘Mellanie, I was trying to hold it and I didn’t want to cum really fast so I was thinking about soccer or whatever so that that didn’t happen.’ So it’d be nice to know what they were thinking about so I could make sure they last long enough for me to get my nut. All that really matters is that I cum! (laugh)

Q: That’s a very male oriented way to look at things…

I hang around guys all the time in New York City who are in the music industry so I really do think like a guy!

Q: Other than the website, anything else people can check you out in?

Everything right now is geared toward www.mellaniemonroe.com. The G-Unit family has really taken me under their wing so Jack Thriller the comedian has a reality show so hopefully I’ll be making my guest appearance on there. I’m also so into rap, I’m hoping to get into the studio with some artists and maybe make a silly song or something. I’m just a silly person. I love comedy and if I could make comedic porn all the time I would. So I’m just doing all kinds of crazy stuff and seein’ what happens.
