Well hello, my name is Nena Cherry. I see Im quite a article of discussion and have been for a very long time. At first I was very shocked , hurt and pissed off all at the same time with some of the post I have seen on here. But now Ive decided to come forward and share with you all my version of the incident that took place in L.A. in the adult entertainment industry. But befor I begin I will probably branch off in several different areas.So please be patient and realize I going to be very honest and share the truth with what took place and what is happening to me today.So if I offend some I will apologize now to those of you, BUT it is time I come forward to say that the lies , gossip, and rumors that have been printed here have got to come to a stop . Who elese is going to defend me? It looks as if no one will, and I really didnt expect them too, and if someone does then they can and will be a friend or a fan and that is wonderful.It means alot... No one really knows me, but they all who claim to have information on me DONT even know me, so today Im going to tell you alot of things about me so that there is no question as to who I am as a person and what I have been through in the last 6 months. I will also like to say I dont appreciate all the know it alls who have the distorted version of the truth and swear by the knowledge on me to be true... I understand WHY this is though... its all they have to go on, and people here on R.A.M.E. and Deja News and other newsgroups want to be the first to get you the information, BUT I simply will not let them go first, for I AM FIRST, this is coming straight frommy lips and not any other way, for I have no ego, or wanna be motivation here I just want you to have the information straight from me , the source and subject. And this is hard for me to do, but I know it will be much more appreciated that way.
My name is Nena CHerry and i have been in over 200 XXX adult movies and I am from Houston, TX.and reside here now . I moved to L.A. back in 1994 to do XXX movies and did just that I was always a party animal and loved sex tremendously, that was the driving force, well that and then money...But mainly the sex! I was doing gangbangs way befor I ever did my first movie and I had been testing HIV negative since 1994, but in edition to my wild sexual behavior I was a firm believer in safe sex, and of course now I am.So I gave up a life here with a Deputy sherrif here in Texas to pursue my career in L.A. and left him , unfortunately to go after my dream. I loved my job and loved all the people in the industry very much and for the first time in my life I gelt like I was a part of something, like a click. I was very happy, and very good at this new found profession.I remained to be single in L.A. for ten months and did nothing but movies and party with the people in the industry. Now if I partied with others outside of the industry then I made the guys wear condums. It was like that befor and I had enough respect for myself, the people I worked witha nd the other person too. I di do drugs , BUT I NEVER SHOT UP!!! That is a TOTAL LIE! And that is not the type of person I am , I hate needles and people who use them.So anyway when I say I did drugs I will confess that I did pot, exstacy, and coke at the beginning was a very small amount. When I was 18 I did ALOT of coke so in comparison there was no comparison. I hooked up with the vice president of a Toyota dealership and we became a very hot item so I thought , and I fell madly in love with him and got dumped on in the most cruel and inhumane way, I was devistated and could not get over him. It was destroying me!! I was turning to alcohol and drugs, BIGTIME! More drugs, and harder ones to lift me up off the coke except this time I was smoking it. I am ashamed that i admitted that but I really want to be a mature adult and come toterms with what I went through and this could all be a direct result of all Ive been going through. Im not sure and will be welcome to any and all feedback. I will say befor I go any further that I am clean and have been since Ive left L.A. and feel great, Im healthy and strong and regret all those stupid days of wasting away on the crazy drugs... I WAS a party girl and I still am but a different kind now. I dont need , do, use , or desire drugs. They kill and ruin lives and GOD only knows what elese.
So anyway back on to my story, I felt trapped in my little crazy drug maze and knew I had a problem but I was hooked and didnt know how to get out,I wasnt working as much and was traveling from L..A. to Houston and when I was there in Houston I talked to "Dayle" and he wanted me to come on back to L.A. so I did and he and I hooked up...we had never been romantically involved befor and he knew of the hardships I had been suffering and all and so did alot of people . I simply was all a big, messover this "Mr. Toyota" and could not heal and get over him, and the drugs and booze were not helping, so I figured that if I hooked up with "Dayle" that he could replace him...WRONG!!! But this story takes a really strange twist or two on the way to where Im taking you.I moved out of my apartment in Woodlandhills, CA. and moved into "Dayle's" house and we became engaged .
I still continued to do drugs while living there and he and I had a very unusual relationshipto sat the least, I still mourned over this "Mr. Toyota" and eventually went in the hospital for depression and Dale andI grew very distant and this hospital put me on all kinds of very powerful drugs and still using I was pretty messed up...I was very unhappy with my past lover and now with my current one, although still engaged the night befor we were to go down and get our marriage licenses all seemed fine, and the next minute "Dayle" came flying at me and grabbed me by my hair on top of my head and started slinginging me around like a rag doll saying to me, "See this? This is your hair bit-h .. Do you want me to to rip it all outof your fuc-ing head??" Well i tried to fight back but he was too big thenhe held me down and tried to suffocate me. and then he says to me, "Stop screaming if you like to breath" I had no choice I thought hell, I better get some air soon, I was scared and couldnt believe that I was going to marry this crazy man... It was so unlike him.He tried to keep me captivein a room, and I pleaded with him to let me use the phone across the streetto call my doctor that I felt depressed and should call, we had just moved in his condo and the phones werent on yetso he said okay that he was going to get his jacket and then I bolted and called 911 and he was then arrested, I filed and a restraining order and the judge kicked out of his condo and he was then arrested again and this time I really was in fear, next time could be worse the police warned me and advised me to leave so I did.Me and all three of my cats , a friend put me up in a hotel, and gave me a little money.
I could not work from all the bruises on me. Soon I would be able to work, I hung out with Ron Jeremy one after noon , he is a very dear and close friend of mine, we had sex, and he took some photos of me and paid me I neede the money desperately, for "Dayle" had been supporting me. Dave Hardman came over and we had sex and Jonathan Morgan and two other people all unprotected . I went to Norton in Culver City to get my HIV test andto my suprise for the first time it came up equivocal... I could not work. I had been using alot of drugs and feel as if the drugs had messed up the test. I know for a fact that my blood was totally polluted.Plus from the coke I was smoking befor all of this happened I was sick, and now I was doing some speed. BAD NEWS . I dint know what to do I kept getting tested in no trace of HIV was ever found in my DNA, or PCR, or RNA. None of my lovers or current sexual partners had it . And even if they did I know atleast a third if not half of the hundred guys I must have slept with would have been exposed to it.But they were not and no one has it that I was sleeping with in the 3 to 6 month window has it!! Doesnt make any sense to me? Did I do so many drugs that I kept getting a false positive result on my test. I think so and so do alot of other people. For example...Look at Roxane Hall. She was another party girl who was in the same boat as me and had to come clean off the drugs to get a proper test result.So am I the next one? Or what really happened ,Ive been in pergatory for 6 months?I went back to "Dayle" and told him the bad news, and he offered me 4,000.00 to go home so I took the money. I flew back to houston with the intent to get off the drugs and get a business going and had more test done and Ive done all of the above and very well I am doing very good,I am off all the garbage drugs and my immune system is getting stronger by the day.I feel much better but I can tell my body is repairing itself and cleaning out, my business is going wonderful. I have a website with a chat program and live video teleconferencing and six different viewing rooms playing some of my movie titles and some that Im producing On my own through my other company, Nena Cherry Productions. Im staying very busy and Im on the way to very big successand I have many other great projects lurking behind the scenes. I will keep you posted.
But now lets get back to the medical issues here. there are 5 different criterias which mean 5 different interpretations in determining if a person is indeed HIV infected. There is no Gold Standardization, and if there was then this would be much more simple. So heres the other point I want to express are the genes in the HIV virus that are looked at veryclosely and they are the "gag" gene, the "pole" gene, and the "envelope" gene. well 2 of these genes back onmy ls HIV test( March 17) are equivocal. Befor only one of them wereequivocal. So what does this mean? Mycounty doctors here say that they will not putme on the protease inhibitors until they know for sure that it is the HIV virus, and they have not confirmed this , and also they said they found a very high level of barbituates in my blood and this was kinda puzzling because mainly I did alot of coke and then did some speed right befor returning home .But the barbituates...And he found I high level of protein in my blood, not to mention everything elese. So we talked and he said to get off and detox so that we could get a better test result. So I have . And soon I will be going back in to do just that get a clean reading.It takes a while to detox all the drugs. The hardest part for me through all this is all the rumors , lies and gossip. Im a good person and I made some foolish mistakes I regret ever loving someone such as "Mr.Toyota"., for he broke my heart and he knew the pain I suffered and was cold , cruel and unkind, and basically could care less if Im dead or alive. I told him about this one afternoon and he was SO MEAN! It really hurt. That is a huge mistake, he was not worth it. And then "Dayle" says to me "No one in L.A. cares about you". After all I sascrificed and all the movies it really makes me feel black balled and abandoned by the industry that I still love. How would any of you like it if this happened to someone you loved or how about YOU?Its hard enough eing a star, but for this to happen, and then have to deal with all the lies, and NO ONE comes directly to you to get the facts. Well that has to change right here and now, Ive openedup my heart with all the pain and have been open and honest to you all over the globe.
There is alot more than just this and if people will open their hearts and listen and feel and learn from my mistakes and downfalls you will see there is a really nice and together person over here who is adult enough to admit that she made some mistakes and use my past as a blanketto help others. Im the kind of person who would give the shirt off her bac to do right to others. Get to know that side of me, Ive got some really wonderful happy stories too, not just this negative stuff. Life is too short and we never know when the tables will turn.I feel Ive said alot and will end this here.
God bless us all, Peace.

My HIV StatusFrom: "Nena Cherry"
Subject: My HIV status...Nena Cherry
Date: Fri, 13 Jun 97 12:10:51
Organization: The Black Box, Houston, Tx (713) 480-2686
On June 10 , I went to the doctor and I relieved test results back from March 15 and on those test results the HIV virus has never been detected. It is not there, my blood looks like someone's blood who has never been exposed to the HIV virus. The doctors could not find a trace of the virus in my blood. The test say less than 400 copies inn detected and I have a 2.6 I asked the doctor what does a persons blood look like that has not been exposed and he said like mine. We had more test ran and I will give the results to you when I receive them on August 5 .
IM very happy about the outcome of things and how my life took on the greatest of challenges and came back like a ace and accepted the hardships like a sport for it has truly made me a better person. I am a survivor and have allot to offer , I have been through some really bad things and been through them alone pretty much and this has shown me the strength I always had inside and I am proud of all my accomplishments. Melissa Hill emailed me the other day and she really made me feel really special she is a cry special lady, I have never met her personally, and think that I would like you meet her very soon. Just when I thought the industry had turned there back on me and still feel that way to some degree along comes a very sweet lady and brightened my day. I never met to cause any problems and still love the triple XXX industry very much, but things happened and it was not fun for me either. This whole thing has really been blown out of proportion and wish that there was some way to make it all better. The past is the past and it will remain that way unless others cant leave well enough alone and become more friendly to one another and try to help others by being more kind and stop being so damn hateful, and politically incorrect. It is a shame and I wont kid myself for they will not change and I sure as hell dot have the time to teach the poor souls . This is my life and IM in charge of int. will live it how I see fit, I wish the best for all of us and I try to be a decent person Vie had my days, good and bad and have made something of my life REGARDLESS! And I am not looking for sympathy as Brandy said at the IRK carat last Wednesday and could care less what she thinks and she is not my friend, Vie never met her and just dot care to meet someone who is going to dog me out and try to figure me out. Whets the damn point? I dot have time for this kind of attitude anyway. If she wants to be nice then that is different . But if not then IM big enough to accept this.
I will keep you all posted as to any new developments.
Take care and have a great day!
