After collecting $ 75,000 for a one night appearance at Little Darlings strip club in Las Vegas on Friday, porn star Stormy Daniels will take the weekend off, then get on the phone with her dance agent in New York next week to discuss bookings through the end of 2018.
According to a rep at Centerfold Strips, which books Daniels’ gigs, her value on the strip club circuit has “doubled — at the very least” since news broke that she’d partied with Donald Trump in a Florida hotel room in 2006, then reportedly took a $ 130,000 not to talk about what happened behind closed doors.
“She is definitely the most popular porn star in the industry at the moment” says Danny Capozzi, a Centerfold Strips agent who is working strictly with Daniels.
Capozzi says his suddenly famous client is booked through June, but has offers that extend through the end of the year.
“In terms of the media covering Stormy, right this second, it’s at the pinnacle, but the residual effects of it will probably last through 2018,” according to Capozzi.
Capozzi says he’s done adult club bookings for other celebs over the years, but has never seen anything like what Daniels is experiencing right now. The closest thing might have been the infamous Long Island Lolita Amy Fisher, who famously shot her much older boyfriend’s wife in 1992, then started touring the strip club circuit 15 years later, having served a seven year prison sentence.
“This is bigger,” he said of Daniels. “I’ve seen it happen that events in the news shape what’s going on, but in my career, this is the most profound one.”
We’re told that as of now, The Donald has not been worked into Daniels’ strip club act nor have there been discussions of having that happen.
“I don’t think she’s talking too much about Trump at her appearances,” according to Capozzi. “She has custom made costumes, she choreographs her show to go along with her music and as far as I know, she’s the only one on stage when she performs.”
Capozzi isn’t sure if Daniels’ schedule will have her coming to New York, though if she does visit, she won’t be an easy act to catch. To keep herself at a premium, Daniels won’t book back-to-back shows within 60 miles of each other.
Daniels will appear on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on Tuesday following the President’s State of the Union address.
