Hollie Stevens

With great sadness, I report the death of Hollie Stevens:

From her obituary:

Hollie Stevens, best known as "The Queen of Clown Porn" died on Tuesday, July 3, 2012 in San Francisco. She fell asleep peacefully while holding the hand of her husband, comedian and artist, Eric Cash.

Debuting in 2000 as feature dancer, "Holly Wood," she traveled across the U.S. performing to packed houses. She was nominated for an AVN in 2004 for Best Group Sex Scene, (The Bachleor) and won the AVN award in 2004 for Best All-Girl Scene (The Violation of Jessica Darlin). Hollie performed in over 170 titles as well as being featured on kink.com, DungeonCorp.com, hogtied.com, chantasbitches.com, The Howard Stern Show, performing at the Lusty Lady, and more.

An accomplished painter with works hanging in the Hyena Gallery in Burbank, Hollie was also a long-time writer and model for Girls and Corpses magazine, a DJ, live visual manipulator, performance artist, kickboxing champion, and an extraordinary wife and friend. In a recent conversation, she shared that the things she would want to be remembered for is that she loved being a wife and friend more than anything.

Hollie was diagnosed in March, 2011 with Stage 3, Metastatic Breast Cancer. Within a year, it had spread to her bone, rib, liver, and brain. After an outpouring of support from a fundraising effort facilitated by her family of friends which raised $16,000 she said, "I cannot believe how many people care, how good my fans are, and how much complete strangers have helped me. This is unreal. Not everyone hates clowns after all!"

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to The San Francisco Shanti Project or the American Cancer Society.

The story of Hollie Stevens taught me many things, one of them being that true love really exists. Hollie passed away holding the hand of her husband, Eric Cash, the love of her life. This young woman was a clown-porn pioneer, an athlete, a model, and a comedian. She was taken from us far too soon, and she will be greatly missed.

I would like to thank Hollie Stevens, Eric Cash, and Laura Lasky, for allowing me to write about Hollie's life and ultimately her death. Hollie's story is one that I will not soon forget, and I am forever changed after writing about it. May your next world be just as blessed as this world was, for knowing you.

Ha this was even easier than I perceived it would be. Well what to say about Hollie Stevens, first of all I am glad that she is deceased however she is not as low as prostitutes are for example. Anyway she will Requiscat In Peacem. debitum naturae and in particular Miss Stevens had dreams of avarice so I thought this last comment would be appropriate.

You know her mother just lost her father less than a month ago.  Her mother has altzheimer's and not doing well either.  Then to find out Tia had passed and not even notified.  She has no closure, nothing.  I have tried to reassure her, but there is no closure. I can't begin to explain to you the grieve she is going through.

Is there anything you can tell me about her last days or memorial service so I can let her mother and brother know.  Her mother is my sister-in-law.  She is so upset.  She found out by a phone call from someone who heard she had passed away.  Could I also get a complete copy of her obiturary.   It would be alot to her Mom.  (tolerable2@yahoo.com).  Thank you so much.

I greatly agree with this. Hollie's mother and brother should have been listed as survivors  in the obit. Hollie was my best friend and worked for and with me for 6 years at Girls and Corpses Magazine. R.S. Rhine

Deric -- encourage Eric to all Tia's family.  Her mother is devastated.  Even made a trip to California to see her and Eric would not let them.

It would be nice if someone such as Eric notified her mother.  She just found out Tia died.  How cruel Eric did not call her.  He could of even called her brother.  Now it is time to put them first.  Eric you were provided phone numbers in email facebook messages.

I'm simply amazed at what Vanessa has written about Hollie. I didn't know her, though I've lived in the US for some time. I would have loved to know such a person. As a Christian, I learn so many things from different people along the way, to become a better person. Having read what you have written on Hollie, I can say she is truly amazing (and those commenting down here who knew her have attested to that). Probably the reason why Eric, with all the love in the world, stood by her, because she fulfilled him!! I've seen people suffer from this disease, and it is cruel, yet those people put up fights like no one has ever seen!! Hollie was a very beautiful woman through and through from testimonies!! However, more than that, is the story of a fight she's put up, absolutely unbelievable!! Christ fought relentlessly for us, and it is really beautiful to see that still today, in this world, there are those who fight till the end, because they believe. She's given me a reason to look into myself, into my judgmental attitudes, my criticisms, my self-righteousness and holier than though mentality, and really ask myself "Are you really fighting for someone??" "Do you really love anyone with this fake holy life that you are living??" Because at the end of the day, love is what makes the way. For all of us out there who may want to call Hollie names (I've seen photos of her, and I can tell you that she is beautiful) because of her lifestyle, think again because at least she loved someone, and did not put on two faces, she was herself through out, a sign of someone who is free indeed. Only God can judge, we have no right to do so, but we have been commanded to love. So the question is, do we love? Do we radiate love wherever we are? At least Hollie did! Thank you Hollie, and may you Rest in Peace

Hollie, my beautiful friend, I am going to miss you terribly. You were so much more than what any mundane could try to pigeonhole you in to. You walked the line between brilliance and insanity with flair and pinache. You left this plane the same way you lived life; on YOUR terms. You took the pain and held on to the very last with a smile on your face and a defiant middle finger. If there is a hall of warriors, luv, you are dancing on the table. There is a hole in this world now, Hollie, and its shaped just like you. Thank you for being my friend and please save Rob, Kevin and me a place at the table. You will always be our star.

We can smile, knowing she got to feel all of the love that the world poured on her before she went. She knew she was appreciated. That's a beautiful thing.
