The 2017 AVN House Party was Packed with Stars and the Announcement of the Hosts of the 2018 AVN Awards Show in Las Vegas
Reprint From AVN.com On Thursday evening, the co-hosts of the 2018 AVN Awards Show were revealed to the hundreds of guests assembled at the second annual AVN House Party. At the event, which was sponsored by MyFreeCams.com, the night began with a star-studded red carpet and a set by vocalist Vonzell Solomon, aka Baby V, who took third place on American Idol (behind Carrie Underwood and Bo Bice). Then up came AVN Media Network CEO Tony Rios, who let the cat out of the bag, calling on performer/director Angela White and cam star Harli Lotts one at a time and then showing a video of the two together.
Rios expressed his delight with the two adult celebrities chosen to be the faces of the 2018 AVN Awards Show. “Both Angela and Harli are superstars in their own right,” Rios asserted. “They both have this wonderful mix of talent, beauty, brains and absolutely no aversion to taking risks. As we take the AVN Awards to yet another level in 2018, I can't think of a better combo to do just that.”
Contacted the night before the party, both women were tingling with anticipation— and even though they'd been in the know for weeks, they were still genuinely astonished to find themselves tapped for one of the most high-profile gigs in the adult industry: hosting the porn industry’s equivalent of the Oscars in a variety show that eventually will be broadcast on cable networks around the globe.
Angela White is no stranger to the AVN Awards, having taken home multiple trophies the past two years and served as a presenter at the 2017 show. But she was caught off guard when she was asked to host the 2018 show. “I still can’t believe it, actually. It still feels like a dream,” White said. “I was absolutely shocked when I came into the office and Tony gave me the news. Even now, talking about it, is it real?”
She added, laughing, “My cheeks hurt afterwards from smiling so much.”
