The former porn mega-star Jenna Jameson and her Israeli fiance are to be the subject of a new reality show, which will document the couple through Jameson’s conversion to Judaism and preparations for their wedding in Israel next year, her fiance said.

In an interview with the Walla news site, Jameson’s intended, Israeli diamond merchant Lior Bitton, also discussed breaking the news to his family that he was dating the “queen of porn.”

“Look, I didn’t come to my mom and say, ‘I’m dating the biggest porn star in the world.’ I mean, there are porn stars, and then there’s Jenna Jameson,” said Bitton, 41. “At the start, I didn’t tell her who she was. It was a slow process. I let her know in bits and pieces until eventually she was able to accept it. And then it was fine.”

Bitton said the reality show, which is in its early production stages, would be “something like ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians'” and focus on the couple’s private life in the lead-up to the wedding.

“It’s a bit stressful, because I’m not used to being in front of the cameras. But I can assure you there won’t be any ‘adult content’ in the show. I’m not going there,” he said.

It wasn’t clear from the Walla report where the show would air.

Jameson, who was raised as a Catholic, announced in June that she was converting to Judaism in order to marry Bitton.

After months of peppering her decidedly NSFW social media streams with photos of handmade Jewish dishes, Sabbath candles and even Hebrew phrases, last week Jameson expressed support for Israel amid a recent wave of violence that has rocked the country.

Posting a photo on her Instagram account with a flag of Israel painted on her back, she wrote, “Stay strong Israel.”

Stay strong Israel

“Stand strong and defend yourself by all means,” Jameson wrote on Twitter. “I am a very outspoken supporter of Israel… I have family there and it’s constant worry,” she added.
