What can I say about Traci Lords (AKA Tracie Lords, Tracy Lords, Traci Elizabeth Lords, Cheech Bogardt) that hasn't already been said? She is both legendary and infamous at the same time. Everybody knows who she is, but very few people have actually seen the movies for which she is famous. She was at the epicenter of a scandal so heinous that I can only hint at the nature of it, lest we lose the opportunity to operate as an adult business. But who am I kidding, you already know what it was about. Due to the fallout from her scandal, nearly 100 films had to be pulled from shelves and theaters, and it even affected the famous issue of Penthouse Magazine in which defrocked Miss America Vanessa Williams appeared. Traci, while still working in the XXX film industry, worked alongside such classic babes
as Stacey Donovan
and Ginger Lynn
. She even worked with Ron Jeremy
. After leaving the adult industry, Traci capitalized on the notoriety she gained from her scandal (She even had her name legally changed to Traci Elizabeth Lords) to catapult herself into a career as a mainstream actress, the bulk of which have been cameo roles. Her most well known mainstream roles
came in John Waters' Crybaby
, and the Kevin Smith-helmed, Seth Rogen vehicle Zack and Miri Make a Porno
. She has also dabbled as a pop singer, and even an author (of course of her Autobiography).
