The Porn Star, the Diva, and the World Wide Web

By
January 1st, 2007


"Mimi is miffed"
wrote Perez Hilton. Then he photoshopped an x-rated composite photo of Mariah Carey into his series of offensive pictures.

It's just one way web pages are getting involved in the ultimate celebrity showdown between a music diva and a porn star.



Wednesday legal documents were filed arguing that while porn star Mary Carey may exploit her body, the right to exploit the name Mariah Carey has already been sold. By Thursday TMZ.com had tracked down the porn star for an interview which plays on their site after a horribly mis-placed ad for a contest involving "Dove Cream Oil." ("Void where prohibited.") Catching her in a bizarrely candid moment, the adult film actress jokes that "I got pants on tonight... I'm a good girl... I'm going to rehab." She then takes a phone call about "the guy who's suing me because I wouldn't go out with him" — and angrily insists that Mary is, in fact, her real name. And the Carey part? "It rhymes, it was funny, it was goofy. It was a porno name!"

Meanwhile, Automatic Princess Holdings, LLC has identified themselves as the official and exclusively-licensed exploiter of the Mariah Carey name, arguing that public could confuse "the goods offered" by the 26-year-old porn star with the "goods and services offered" by the 36-year-old singer. (No pun intended.) By Thursday the Smoking Gun had also dug up the group's legal documents, where they admit that Mariah Carey's name became famous after they "invested a substantial amount of time, effort, and money in promoting the Mariah Carey mark." While Mary Carey may have applied to trademark her name a year ago, Mariah's team says they'd already notified her of their pre-existing trademark.

Elsewhere on the web, Mary Carey took a break from her busy schedule of teasing strangers at bus stops and running for Governor to address the controversy herself on her (not safe for work) site. "It makes me so sad that we can't just be friends and drink some champage this new year," she wrote earlier this month. (Adding that "I am dancing in philly next week and you can see me at Oasis and the 76ers games Wednesday and Saturday.") But she offered a longer analysis about Mariah on her MySpace page.

"I think she is dumb for causing all this drama."

Web surfers seeking a scathing online rebuttal from Mariah Carey found only this rejoinder on her web site: "You can purchase a Fan Club gift membership for all the Mariah fans in your life!" But fortunately YouTube rushed in to fill the void, when WXYZ Radio uploaded a video fulfilling the potential of these two media worlds colliding.

In "Mariah Carey vs. Mary Carey," they spliced together samples of both Careys at work to create the inevitable comparison. Using bath tub footage from Mariah's Shake it Off video and the sexy bed rolling filmed for We Belong Together, they showed the MTV diva as a music video vamp. But while the song Maneater plays in the background, the video switches to footage of Mary Carey performing her trademark girl-girl kissing and groping scenes. And there's more in Part Two, this time using Chris Brown's Gimme That as the accompanying track and more racy footage of both performers.

Other YouTube users uploaded their own bemused commentary. ("What is she afraid of?" asks a 37-year-old in Canada. "People might think that Mary Carey can sing...? This is just a ploy...to get her name in the paper.") Video blogger "Jewelry Man" weighed in with his own unique perspective. ("How 'bout we go back to them headlights?") And overlooked somewhere in YouTube's comments rests the perfect solution from user djbluu. "I say foxy box it out. Winner gets to keep the name..."

Mariah Carey may be thinking "Gotta do what's best for me, baby, and that means I gotta shake you off." But in the end porn star Mary Carey faces her own set of identity concerns too. "There are people using my images illegally," she posted on her blog, "such as the imposter Mary Carey's on MySpace, escort services and such."



Ironically, after all the legal fussing, Mary Carey considers herself a fan. "I love Mariah," she writes. "I have always respected her talent and beauty."

"I just wish she would let me use my name!"

  1. The Truth Says:

    Mary Carey Exposed, the real truth about & behind the “Carey Name Game”

    Mark J. Behar, who knows Mary “Carey” Cook Oh so well, said “Quite frankly, I’m shocked that know one has done anything about this up until now”.

    He says, “The Truth must be told”.

    It is very common & well known that several porn movie titles are a “spoof”, and a “mockery” of real mainstream moves, such as “Rambone” (Rambo), etc., as well as using several music & movie Superstars names in the same way, such as “Britney Rears” (Britney Spears), etc. is “quite the norm, in this industry”.

    But these other adult entertainers, don’t really look much like there counterparts that they try to, and/or are portraying in their adult films, and in most cases they don’t have and use the mainstream entertainers first, and/or last names, or they change the spelling of the first and/or last names, thus, no harm, no foul.

    But these adult entertainers are not in the media spotlight, nor have they had the media attention like Mary “Carey” Cook has received, by going on mainstream TV & News Shows, like Fox News-“Your World with Neil Cavuto”, as well as going to (buying her way into) “Republican Fundraising Presidential Dinners”, organized by the “N.R.C.C – National Republican Congressional Committee”, and trying to fool everyone into thinking that she is a “Sincere and Truly Serious Politician”.

    Her real birth name is Mary Cook, and a few years ago, after feature dancing at several adult gentlemen clubs, decided to get into the porn industry, because she was told, that she could make some real serious money because she was attractive, athletic, had great stage presence, worked quit well in front of an audience, and had a very outgoing personality, that would come across well on camera.

    People had told her in the past that she looked like & had some of the same features & physical characteristics as “Pop Diva Mariah Carey”, and that if she just enhanced some of those “Features” that, that wound be “Her In and Hook”, in the porn industry.

    So, Mary packed up and moved to California, and got started in the adult industry. She loves the attention that she gets, and most of the time, generates it herself, and she can’t survive without it. She always is seeking some type of “Media Attention”.

    In June of 2005, Mark J. Behar, who knew Mary, when she lived in Florida, a few years earlier, and who is a 39.yr old Young Entrepreneur/Business Owner & Investor of Major Multi-Unit Rental Properties & Buildings, in Delray & Boynton Beach, Florida, as well as “Chairman” & “Chief Judge”, with & on the City Of Delray Beach ” Code Enforcement Hearing Board, and who also “Moonlights” as a “Celebrity Personal Security/Bodyguard”, and who also has received from the N.R.C.C – National Republican Congressional Committee, “The Congressional Medal Of Honor”, and “The Congressional Medal Of Distinction”, as well as Past Years & the Current “2006-Businessman Of The Year Awards”, had asked Mary (As they bumped into each other, a few years later in a “Home Depot”, in Delray Beach, Florida), if she wanted to attend the MTV Movie Awards with him, in California, she of course said “Yes”.

    Mark attended the event with Mary, and that’s when he found out about the “True” Mary “Carey”. She had changed over the years, and was very much “into herself”, stuck up, snotty, and was not professional & intelligent like he had known her in the past to be.

    At that time, in the limo to the awards show, is where she started telling Mark about her whole “Mariah Carey Obsession Thing”. She kept on saying, “Don’t I look more like Mariah now, I had my boobs done, do you like them”, “I hope she’s there, I can wait to see her, and hope we bump into her”.

    Mark says, “She has always said to me that she compared herself to Mariah Carey”. She has said that she looks so much like her, and that’s why she calls herself “Mary Carey”. She told me, that she has said this in several adult entertainment magazines, as well as in the past, on her & other web-sites and Blogs.

    Why else, and what other reason would she have to use the last name of “Carey”? “I bet you, she’s not using it to associate herself and you would never confuse her with actors & comedians ‘Jim Carrey’ or ‘Drew Carey’. If this isn’t in fact true, then where, and why, did she come up with this ‘Last Name’, that’s the question, that I have, and would love to hear her response & answer to, and her take & ‘Spin’ on?

    This is also when & where I heard of, and she had told me about her idea to “Trademark” the “Carey” name, knowing this would generate and get her even more “Media Attention” and herself in the “Spotlight”.

    And, “Hey look what happened, she was right, it worked”. She’s a very good self promoter.

    She asked me my opinion on her idea, and I had advised, told & warned her, about the “Legality” of this, and told her to do some background on this first, to see if she can in fact “Legally do this”, as well as to seek out legal help from & to talk to an attorney that “Specializes in these types of matters”.

    Mark says, “That’s the last I heard of this”. Since then, Mary has asked mark on several occasions for business advice, and this topic has never come up again, until now.

    After the awards show, and a week or so later, she went to, and was at the “2005” — “Presidents Dinner”, with her then Employer “Mark Kulkis”, the owner of the porn video production company “Kick Ass Pictures”, that she was under contract with, at that time. Mark (Behar) also was at this special event.

    Mark was personally invited to this same event, but was invited because & due to his achievements of being a young, upstanding, outstanding and Quit Successful Businessman, and who is a true Political activist, from and in his State of Florida.

    Mary apologized to Mark at this event & dinner, and said that she got really drunk that night at & after the awards show. Mark forgave her & they took an “Official Presidential Dinner Picture” together at the event, which is the only “Official” one of Mary, at & from the event. Mary told Mark, that “They should stay & continue to be good friends, and keep in touch”.

    Mark thought that she was actually serious about her political ambitions, at that time, because Mary told him, that she wanted to “Stop doing what she was doing, and leave the whole porn thing & world, and wanted to go Mainstream like Mariah”.

    6 to 9 months later Mary hired Mark to do some personal security & bodyguard work, as well as assist her with her personal matters & affairs at that time, as she was traveling throughout the country & across the world, doing feature & special personal appearances at several events. This turned out to be a strain on & where their friendship took a turn. Mary cancelled out at the last minute on Mark, as he was already at the airport, at the gate, and boarding his flight, to where she was at. This eventually cost him over $7,500.00 in “Out-of-Pocket” travel expenses, and costs that eventually became & is today, a legal battle, with two Civil Action Court Cases, being filed against her, and which are still pending, in Florida.

    Mary & Mark, stayed in touch & friends, on & off this past year, as they were going through & trying to work out & settle all these & their legal issues & matters.
    In November, Mary asked Mark, to take her to another awards show, to go see & where Mariah Carey, was suppose to be performing at, the “AMA — American Music Awards Show”, where Mark was again, just like last year, invited to and was to attend, as a Special Invited Guest.

    Mark, at first said “Sure, Yeah” and invited her, until they could not get past & settle their legal issues & matters.

    Mark says, “I found out and heard about this, just like the rest of the world did”. “I can’t believe that she actually went through with it & is doing this whole PR Stunt thing, just to get more media attention, with her Mariah fixation & obsession”. “It’s a good thing that I didn’t take her, to the awards show, Thank God, who knows what would have happened”?

    Mark also said, “At the end of all this, Mary just wanted to & has used me, just to go to & attend these Special Events, these and this Award Shows, just to see, and “Hopefully bump into Mariah”, the “Real Carey”.
