Seventeen years after Amy Fisher shot her lover Joey Buttafuoco’s wife, Mary Jo, in the head with a .25-caliber semiautomatic pistol, both are using the notoriety from the case. Mary Jo Buttafuoco has a new book cleverly titled new book “Getting it Through My Thick Skull” and is on tour to promote it. In Touch recently reported that Amy Fisher, now 34, has launched a career as a Pay-Per-View porn star and an exotic dancer, performing at strip clubs along the East Coast.
The pictures of Amy from her sex tape drew plenty of interest when it was fist revealed that she had moved into the world of adult entertainment. Amy, who is married to her agent, Lou Bellera, 56, and has three children, Brett, 8, Ava, 4, and a 3-month-old boy, and In Touch earlier spoke with Fisher about her controversial new career and how she’s changed after spending seven years in prison for assaulting Mary Jo. “I’ve been through so much,” Amy says. “It’s time to have fun in my life.”
The Examiner notes that in an interview with Howard Stern, "Mary Jo said that Lou Bellera called her with what he purported to be a “bona fide offer” to take part in a “reunion” with Joey and his new wife, Amy and Lou, and Mary Jo and her current boyfriend." A photos offer - another sex video? She says she turned it down.
More of the Amy Fisher Q&A from In Touch:
Why did you decide to get into porn?
I’m doing it for me, to have a good time. As long as you don’t mind taking your clothes off, it’s great.
How do you reconcile doing porn with raising kids?
Whatever I do in my private life is my private life. When I come home at night, I have my family. The kids are my whole life — this is my business. I give 100 percent to my kids and husband.
You gave birth a few months ago. How did you get back in shape?
I work out two to three hours a day. I do a half-hour of cardio and weights for the rest of the time. My body looks great — I look phenomenal.
Do you think the public will ever change their perception of you?
I’m the Long Island Lolita who has always been known for a sex scandal. I’m not a criminal. I did something stupid in high school. I’m an adult now and I grew up. I think people are sick of hearing about it. It’s been [almost] 20 years – I’ve moved on.
