Seth Santoro Thanks Chi Chi LaRue For Help With Sobriety: “If It Weren’t For Chi Chi, I Might Be Another Dead Porn Star”

Posted July 23, 2018 by with 20 comments

H_1Gay porn star Seth Santoro has been noticeably absent on social media over the last month, but he’s come back today to open up about his recent sobriety, his love for Chi Chi LaRue, and a past encounter he had with someone who slept with his ex-husband, Billy Santoro.

First, Seth on achieving sobriety and how Chi Chi LaRue (who directed Seth in NakedSword’s Scared Stiff)  helped him get there:

seth1 seth2Chi Chi LaRue has been open about her own struggles with sobriety, so it’s great to see her helping others in need. Falcon Studios congratulated Seth on his sobriety, and in his response to them, he acknowledged that “social media preys on drama” (which is, presumably, why he’s been taking a break from Twitter):

seth3Finally, Seth also received congratulations from Twitter user Nic Sahara (who appears to be a new porn performer), whom Seth interacted with in the past. In his response to Nic Sahara, Seth wrote, “I don’t talk to people who fucked my ex”:

seth4The exchange between Nic Sahara and Seth escalated quickly, with Nic explaining that his sexual encounter with Billy Santoro (Seth’s ex) was “work related.” He also tells Seth, “no need to be a dick.”

seth5Seth Santoro is disappointed in Nic Sahara for having sex with Seth’s ex-husband, Billy Santoro, for money, despite the fact that Billy Santoro was “physically abusive” towards Seth. As you’ll recall, Seth Santoro came forward one year ago this week to accuse Billy Santoro of violently assaulting him multiple times, writing that he had been “punched in the face repeatedly” by Billy Santoro in their Washington D.C. apartment. Seth Santoro reminded Nic Sahara (who had, apparently, tried to befriend Seth before moving on to Billy) of this again before the end of their conversation:

    I should’ve just read the title and been happy for Seth. Then I saw the catty Twitter wars. God…

    • Me2

      Sadly, twits will always tweet, usually to their own detriment.

      Sad but time and again this is proven true. Good news? Crickets. Bad news, drama or “tea” will have every gay in a 10 miles radius pulling up a seat and offering their 2 cents.

  • FrenchBug

    I’ll agree that the conversation with Nic Sahara should have been taken to private but I will say that I find “I don’t talk to people who fucked my ex” a lot more relatable than the sometimes freaky, or gross, or weirdly incestuous scene pairings most porn performers are willing to go along with because it is just work”. So kinda glad Seth is taking a stance here.

      LOL. They are sex workers, if intimacy is just about sex for them then they are in the wrong business. Also, it sounds very petty Seth kept this logged for over a year after the events occurred. It doesn’t sound healthy, if he wanted to ignore the convo, a simply click that could be achieved. But with the twitter fight and constant back and forth it seems he’s got a lot of shit to work through.

    Drugs explain a lot.

    That back and forth reminded me of Kelly’s verse in “Survivor”

    That was a master class in ultimate passive aggressiveness. Bravo, Nic Sahara, with yo salty ass lol

    Seth… well, drama queens are gonna drama, so there’s not much to expect there.

  • jimboivyo

    The hard work of sobriety for anyone, will always be the absence of social media and the drama which follows. Sure, if you’re like CHI CHI LaRue who begged for others to help pay for her sobriety is one way to go – but for most, who take this journey seriously, it’s about you and no one else. If you don’t understand that, you’re just looking for another reason to avoid the hard work and look toward those whom support your life being as fucked up as their own.

    Glad Seth is sober and out of the clutches of Billy S. Seth has been putting in really good work lately, and hopefully we’ll never have to see or hear about Billy ever again.

  • The Porn Emperor

    Why do people choose to have public fights via Twitter?

  • SaintMike

    oh god….so nothing changes….relapse in 3-2-1…..

  • sxg

    So what did Chi Chi do to help keep Seth sober? Drink all his alcohol and use up all his drugs for him?

    Good on Seth for working on his sobriety, but he clearly has a long way to getting himself back mentally. Maybe he’s just naturally a snarky bitch, which is why many of us used to say Seth and Billy deserved each other.

    I feel that Seth’s anger towards Nic doing a paid scene with Billy is uncalled for, unless Nic was paid by Billy himself or a studio Billy helps run. You should be able to research and carefully choose what studios you should and should not work with, but who your scene partner will be at that studio is up in the air and could be anyone, including people you don’t like. Is Setg really going to not talk to all pornstars who have slept with Billy? Even those that worked with him before we found out that Billy used to use him as his personal punching bag?

  • n24rc

    This set of tweets make seth look like sobriety won’t stick. He sounds bitter and angry, resentful, the three emotions that cause relapse.

    What happen to “accept things you cannot change”?

  • B.C.

    What I get from this twitter ping-pong is: 1. Nic was once pursuing Seth, but Seth didn’t find him worthy. 2. Nic then filmed a sex scene with Billy and claims there was no other hanky-panky business 3. Seth is now angry at Nic, whom he rejected from the start, because Nic had sex with his abusive ex. WTF?!

  • Marcus Collack

    Okay, I’m getting real tired of this. Seth Santoro, the porn star, who chose to be with and marry Billy Santoro, a porn star, and take his porn star last name, is mad at Nic Sahara, another porn star for doing his job and shooting a porn with his ex, the porn star… even though Seth and his Ex man, were fucking other porn stars, in their side business, which also was shooting porn…
    ANNALISE…am I tripping out or…!!!

    Oh okay…That’s what I thought.
