Dianna Williams Not Letting Porn Past Define Her Success

Dianna Williams*The porn past of Lifetime star Dianna “Miss D” Williams may be coming back to put a dent in her thriving career as a successful and sought after choreographer.

The reality TV star has admitted in the past to starring in adult films during her teenage years, and a quick Google search reveals that those films are starting to surface.

37-year old Dianna was initially hesitant to sign on to her hit “Bring It!” series out of fear that the tapes would embarrass her family.

“I originally said no because I felt like my past was going to hurt my kids… [But] after talking to the producers about my life and making decisions that could benefit somebody else and getting over it basically,” she said in the interview with Madam Noire. “I prayed about it. I talked to my husband about it, who was aware when we started dating.”

“The girls know about my past,” she said of the dancers she coaches on the show. “We’ve talked about it. They know about why I did what I did and why I felt like I needed to and what I should have done. I explain to them that I didn’t have the support system that they have.”

Dianna escaped the porn hustle through dance. She started the Dancing Dolls in 2001 and opened Dollhouse Dance Factory in 2012. “Bring It!” has showcased the day-to-day activities of the award-winning Jackson, Miss.-based troupe since 2014. The Dancing Dolls recently filmed their semi-finale show during the first annual Arkansas Extreme Showdown 2016.

“As a kid, I didn’t grow up hearing those words, ‘I love you’ a lot. So for me, even though my mom showed me love, hearing it was better,” Williams told Madame Moire back in 2014, when asked how she finds balance between correcting but not being too hard on her students. “So, as a coach, you can fuss and yell and scream, but you need to get up and actually show them what you’re doing. And that’s what I do with my girls,” she added.

“Bring It!” is now in its third season and airs Fridays at 9/8c on Lifetime.
