If you follow our tweets, you may already be familiar with Lani Brooke, the local talent that we are showcasing today.
Just to put this right out there, right away: yes, she is a porn star.
She would never describe herself as such, though, as she balks at any mention of her being a”star.” However, with 1,800 facebook fans and 1,200 twitter followers, we honestly can’t think of a Green Laker with a bigger fanbase. For this reason alone, we thought that we would tell you a bit about her.
We first got to know Lani when, about a month ago, we innocently retweeted the following after it popped up in twazzup:
Eek! nothing like waking up to a spider crawling up my leg! I think I woke up the all of GreenLake!
Next thing we knew, the following came down the pike:
A little scuffle ensued, ending with an epic shout of “West Seattle 4 life!”, and we called it a night. Whah, some uptight dude took issue with a retweet. Bah.
The next day, we learned that Lani had received over twenty hateful tweets from Green Lake residents who were unhappy with her twitter presence. We also got a message from Lani, personally apologizing to us for “making Green Lake look bad”. We told her that no apology was necessary. She’s a Green Lake resident as much as the next Green Lake resident, after all, and she has as much of a right to mention the neighborhood in her tweets as anybody else.
Since then, we’ve been, quite frankly, charmed by Lani Brooke. A prolific twitter user, her tweets are often NSFW to say the least, but they also frequently give us a little glimpse into the mind of a total sweetheart.
See, for example, the heartfelt tweets she posted on the night that there were two muggings, when loud police helicopters could be heard over Green Lake:
~ Good night Green Lake don’t let the bed bugs and lock your door and windows! xoxo
~ Eek tweeting from my phone in the dark is not a good thing! Sorry Green Lake for my typos.
~ Good Night Everyone! I need to get some sleep! Especially Green Lake let’s stay safe and bring back our peaceful night! xoxo
Lani is, in our opinion, a great neighbor. We think (hope) that most Green Lakers probably agree, and in that spirit, we decided to write up a little homage to Lani Brooke, Green Lake’s own claim to fame.
Here are 1o things that every fan should know about Lani:
- At 42, Lani is looking pretty damn fine.
- Lani is an American (born and raised in Honolulu), but modeled extensively in Tokyo during her teen years.
- While in Japan, she starred in a Coke commercial.
- Lani has a Masters degree in Psychology.
- She has worked as a flight attendant, a therapist, and a Hooters girl.
- Lani has lived in Seattle for 10 years. The last 3 1/2 have been spent in Green Lake.
- She’s been in the Playboy Mansion (but doesn’t think that is a big deal).
- She’s attended the AVN Awards, which, according to google, is the Academy Awards of the porn industry.
- She played the role of Sarah Palin in a porn shoot.
- Her boyfriend is kinda a big deal – he’s the president of Homegrown Video and was a producer of the cult film Orgazmo.
And there you have it. We’ll close by sharing with you the email we received from Lani after initially contacting her about this post:
Thank you for the DM sure i would love to do a profile for you about what I do. I just don’t want you guys to get a lot of hate mail. Some people are still uptight in the world.
We don’t really anticipate a lot of hate, and we can take it if it comes, but heck, it’d be nice to prove Lani wrong. Let’s show a neighbor some love: if you see her walking around the lake, send her a nod and smile.
