The former President of the U.S. is flanked by Brooklyn Lee and Tasha Reign in a picture taken at the fund-raising dinner which has Rose McGowan, Joshua Jackson and Diane Kruger as guests.
Bill Clinton grabbed headline when a picture of him posing with two porn stars hit the web on Thursday, May 24. In the picture, the former president of the United States was sandwiched by adult-movie stars Brooklyn Lee and Tasha Reign.
The picture was taken at Nights in Monaco gala dinner to raise money benefiting the William J. Clinton Foundation and the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation. Brooklyn and Tasha came to the event as guests of Marc Bell, the CEO of the company that owns Penthouse magazine.
The two females told TMZ that Clinton eyed their table but when they wanted to meet him, they were initially denied by his guards. "The Secret Service guy wasn't having it, but then (Clinton) let us come over," they said. They also had a conversation, but it was a brief one.
"I just said he was a great President," Lee opened up. "He just kind of winked and smiled and gave us hugs." Tasha added, "I hope this doesn't hurt his re-election or whatever he's trying to run for." On Twitter, Lee wrote, "This s**t is out of control! Sorry Bill! We <3 you."
The event itself was attended by some big stars including Rose McGowan and Joshua Jackson. The latter came with his actress girlfriend Diane Kruger and splurged $45,000 on a diamond necklace for her.
