Tawny Roberts Biography


I've had a very hard time piecing together fact from fiction when it comes to the history of our beloved Tawny Roberts. I've run this Tawny Roberts fan site for many years now and it turns out it has been quite poplular, or at least this page is because I've noticed that many people have copied what I've written and posted it on their own site, but what they seem to have done is forgotten to update it. But not a problem, I have the most up to date information on Tawny Roberts (as of 2009) there is!

When doing my research to create this biography page for you, I found it amusing how people like to fudge the facts a little on their history. I remember one porn star decided to take a few years off of her age because she thought she was getting old at 24! Well by doing that, anyone who could do simple math, realized that if what she posted on her official site was true then she would have made her first movies with Vivid when she was only 17 years old which of course wasn't true and anyway the point of my story is that it wasn't easy to piece together the real biographical information but with the help of interviews for Tawny Roberts herlself, talks with friends, industry insiders and reps from Vivid I think I was able to put together a accurate look at her life.

Now I realized that most of the fiction about her biography comes not from Tawny herself but from promotional companies and marketing executives who never really bother to research her biography for putting out things on her so called official site(s). Kinda sad huh? Well on with the biography!! =)

Tawny Roberts was born on March 18, 1979 as Adrienne Almond. Although this 5 foot 7 inch goddess was born in Utah she grew up in Texas and that gave Tawny Roberts her southern charm. But don't let her southern sweetness fool you, Tawny is a girl who loves to have a good time! Tawny Roberts says that her first movie was for Jill Kelly in late 2001 but I guess she forgot about the work she did for Metro, a low budget porn producer in late 2000, early 2001. The movies she did for Metro during that time were Wild Cherries, All Teens Love Cum, and All Fucked Up.

One thing you can say about Tawny Roberts is that she isn't afraid of hard work. Where as most porn stars just do 4-5 movies a year at best, Tawny will sometimes do as many as 10 a year and it seems her hard work paid off because it landed her an exclusive contract with Vivid Entertainment as an infamous Vivid Girl and she stayed under contract with them for about 2 years. It was during this time that she was filmed for a reality show that aired on Showtime about her work as an adult star.

Tawny Roberts says she is a normal girl, like the girl next door and that being a famous porn star hasn't really changed her. This could be in part to her strict upbringing. Tawny grew up in a very traditional Mormon family. Her father was a Bishop, one of the key positions within the Mormon Church. A bishop is the leader of a local congregation (just like a minister or pastor). Oh yah, that makes Tawny Roberts a preacher's daughter! Guess that explains a whole lot! =)

So how did Tawny get started in making movies? Well apparently she was at the Key Club in Hollywood when she met Dayton Rains. The Key Club is nightclub on the Sunset Strip where to this day porn stars still hang out including Tawny's friend Mary Carey and sometimes Devon. It's a popular hangout and features various live local bands. Dayton and Tawny became friends and Dayton Rains told her about the ins and outs of the adult business. Dayton was a Vivid girl during this time so Tawny Roberts went to try and get a contract with Vivid herself, unfortunately Vivid was going through some changes during this time so they really weren't signing any new girls. This was the time when Vivid signed a big distribution deal with Larry Flint / Hustler.

Tawny Roberts however didn't let that discourage her. Instead she went out and found work on her own. After making some low budget movies for Metro and doing some modeling for adult magazines trying to make a name for herself, she called up Jill Kelly which she met one night while out partying with friends. Jill offered her some work in a few of her titles and on the side Tawny did some movies for other low-medium budget companies like Odyssey, Evil Angel and Digital Sin.

In about 2002 Tawny got her lucky break and got her first contract with a fairly decent company - VCA. Tawny's contract with VCA lasted about a year and as she looked back over the past few years she knew she wasn't going to get anywhere unless she could get on with the marketing power house, Vivid who has over the last 20 years made more girls famous than all other companies combined. Although Tawny's contract with VCA was for two years, they agreed to let her out of her contract.

Tawny Roberts went back to Vivid and showed them that she was worth their time and they agreed! Vivid signed Tawny Roberts for a two year contract which includes six movies a year. Tawny's first few movies with Vivid won her critical acclaim.

In addition to starring in several adult films, Tawny has been featured in FHM, Playboy and Revolver magazines and has an uncredited role in the 2003 feature film, Shade, starring Sylvester Stallone and Jamie Foxx, as a dancer in the club.Sure it wasn't a big role, but hey she got a part in a real mainstream movie! In 2003 she also did an episode of The Man Show and that same year she was hired to do an epside of what she thought was called Lap of Luxury but turned out to be The Joe Schmo Show. A reality series not unlike the bachelor. She played the roll of a high priced hooker.

It is interesting to note that unlike most porn stars of Tawny's fame, she has never done the Howard Sterns how. What makes this even more unusual is that in December of 2005, Howard stated that he thought Tawny was really hot. He later learned that Tawny once tried to get onto the show but wasn't allowed to come up from the lobby.

Tawny says that her hobbies are Snowboarding, traveling, wakeboarding and running. She's been active all her life. In high school she played basketball, volleyball and golf. After high school she went back to Utah for college where she studied Retail management which is what brought her to California. After graduation from their 2 year program Tawny moved to LA to work in a department store in their management training program. It was during this time that she met fellow porn star Dayton Rains and learned about the adult business. She soon quit her job at the department store and never looked back.

Tawny loves to travel and two of her favorite destinations are Las Vegas and Cancun. Most recently Tawny is said to have gone on an extended trip to both Africa and Australia with a man who she would later move to New York and have a child with, David.

Throughout most of 2005 and early 2006 Tawny was thought to be dating Mary Carey, who came to fame during the 2003 California recall election, as she was an independent candidate for governor. She was the porn star running for office.It was a huge deal in the news at the time. Their relationship was rocky and best and ended in 2006 when Tawny Roberts confornted Mary Carey about her boyfriend who was making sexual advances toward Tawny. Tawny eventually moved to New York with her boyfriend David and gave birth to her first child in mid December 2006. This was the same boyfriend who would later be seen ont he VH1 reality series Sober House as Mary Carey's boyfriend and hated by her fellow rehab friends. They all hated him. They thought he was a total sleeze.

For most of 2007 things have been quiet on the Tawny Roberts homefront. That was until the end of August when a mysterious message appeared on her MySpace page, which my sources say is run by a company she has contracted to keep up with her personal website, so keep in mind when it says things like LOVE TAWNY it really isn't Tawny directly, but instead a person paid by Tawny to represent her internet interests. Anywho, the message was about her ex boyfriend / former lawyer. It seems he's not to happy about Tawny Roberst making a new life with the father of her child and trying to be happy.

This message is to inform you all that my former/boyfriend/manager/lawyer is setting up fake webpages about me. This is my real site and I am in contact with MySpace to delete all bogus sites. I will be posting some new private content soon ....

If you remember, this is the same guy who previously was helping Tawny setup her own company (Tawny mobile porn services kind of thing) and ended up not paying any of the models and as a direct result, caused serious friction between long time friend Devon. MySpace seems to have deleted the other fake pages,and no other news of this ex boyfriend have surfaced.

tawny roberts biography

A dedicated fan of Tawny (Hi Derek!!), wrote to me recently to let me know that I missed some valuable biographical data about Miss Tawny. It seems that on September 14, 2007 Tawny apepared on the Alan Colmes radio show in NYC, where Tawny now calls home. The show promoted Tawny's return from retirement hinting that Tawny would come back to making movies but in fact that is not the case. Tawny said very clearly that should had no desire to return to making movies but that she would be doing some live Internet talks sometime in the future, as per her agreement with the company running her official site. Tawny appeared on the show with her boyfriend David, who she had a child with in December of 2006. The two seemed really happy together.

Tawny Roberts discussed her concern with people packaging and reselling products years after they were made. She cited Where The Boys Aren't 18 as an example, that was made in late 2005 but not released until early 2007. Tawny Roberts doesn't seem to realize that it's not unusual for a movie to be in post production for a year or so. In fact, it is more common than not, for Vivid to film a movie, and then prepare it with editing, etc. over the next 8 to 18 months before it gets released. Our reps at Vivid tell us that he's been in the business more than 20 years and he can't think of one example of a Vivid movie that was rushed to release (which is in less than 8 months from production). He says ... that just isn't how things are done.

In the interview Tawny Roberts talked extensively about being in the business and how she seen it as a mistake and something she wishes she would have never done. Tawny also talked about her exes ... she felt that her Rick Patrick used her (which is very true) and that she and Mary Carey were never really lovers, despite all the evidence to the contrary. Mary Carey by all accounts was deeply in love with her but Tawny Roberts now seems to recall the relationship more as close friends, sister like and not as lesbian lovers.

On a good note, Tawny Roberts says she's got a new life out of the business and that she's really happy. Not much is really known about this David guy she is with but by all accounts he's very good for her. He treats her good, takes care of her and most importantly, keeps her out of trouble.

On an interesting side note, when Tawny Roberts signed with Vivid she was dating Rick Patrick and for awhile would only perform in boy / girl scenes with him. Years later they would break up and he would go on to marry the now very famous Jesse Jane. What I find most interesting about this is how much Jesse Jane looks like Tawny Roberts.
