Porn queen Jenna Jameson has responded to outspoken American TV pundit BILL O'REILLY criticising her new ad deal with PONY FOOTWEAR by claiming he requested her X-rated videos in the past.

O'Reilly, who has lashed out at stars like George Clooney on his hit daily news show THE O'REILLY FACTOR, cost rapper Ludacris a lucrative advertisment deal with PEPSI last year (02) when he slammed the soft drinks company for teaming up with the foul-mouthed star

He turned his attentions to Jameson's deal yesterday (05JUN03), saying, "Call me crazy but I don't think porn stars are great role models. I want to send them a message that I resent their attempt to mainstream destructive behaviour.

"Pony are rewarding quasi-prostitution with lucrative endorsement deals."

However, Jameson, who has starred in hundreds of hardcore sex films, says, "I hope Bill understands the difference between a porn star and a hooker. I assume he has done some research on the subject matter, because he requested some of my videos after we finished taping my appearance on his program last summer (02). I imagine he wanted them for professional reasons, of course."

But the curvy blonde doesn't take O'Reilly's criticisms particularly seriously, "I get a kick out of Bill. He likes to hop up on the pulpit waving a banner and trying to get everyone to listen to his shtick.

"It's funny, but this time he's hopping on the wrong stand. Come on, lighten up, it's 2003! Gee, Bill, I'm sorry I looked sexy in the Pony ad. That's just how God made me."
