'Laguna Beach' Cast Member Now Makes Porn and Nuzzles Bill Clinton

Lagunans may remember Rachel Swimmer, but the rest of the world now knows her as Tasha Reign, porn superstar.

Boy, assorted hunks of news media sure have been freaking out over the Sept. 1 DUI arrest of former Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County window dressing piece Talan Torriero.

The 25-year-old pseudo-star—whom Wikipedia describes as "Surfer who was friends with all of the girls on the show and supposedly hooked up with most of them before filming"—was popped in the wee hours of Sept. 1 near Brooks Street and Coast Highway, and his mug has summarily been pasted not only all over UV-hungry Laguna Beach news sites, but ones in Seattle, Indiana, Connecticut, Oklahoma, Iowa, Oregon, Orlando and Kansas City.

And those are just the ones Google Alerts lets us know about ...

While not quite as huge a name as Lauren Conrad, Kristin Cavallari, or any of the other veterans from The Show Laguna Beach Citizens Love To Hate, Torriero's newsmaking abilities and the subsequent media pile-up had us wondering about another "LB:TROC" alum who just might be the most successful of the bunch ... Rachel Swimmer.

Though she was a mere supporting player in the show's Season Three, Swimmer has moved on from Laguna Beach to become a successful entrepreneuer, an accomplished film actor, writer, director, college student, and, as this recent LA Weekly profile piece points out, occasional UCLA lecturer.

But the world probably knows Swimmer best by her other name: Tasha Reign.

That would be porn superstar and Penthouse Pet Tasha Reign.

Swimmer/Reign actually caused a global stir back in May when she was photographed nuzzling up next to Bill Clinton at a benefit in Monaco. From the LA Weekly story:

She'd never met Clinton before that night. "There were a million gorgeous models there; it's not like we stood out in the crowd by any means. He probably thought, 'If these girls want to take a picture with me, they're probably donating so much money, I better take a picture with them.' Why not?"

But when Bell's girlfriend tweeted the photo, everyone saw Tasha the porn star, not Rachel the student. Hucksters teased that old rascal Bill was up to no good again -- surely he must know the identity of the busty blonde at his arm.

"I didn't even think for one second it would be controversial," Rachel says. "Then all of a sudden, there's, like, all of these retweets and retweets and it's trending."

Funny enough, Reign/Swimmer says she was worried that the Clinton photo would hurt her reputation:

"Everyone's like, 'This should be cool for you, it's PR, everyone knows your name.' I would never want that negative type of press," she says. "I'm so proud of the movies that I make, and the scenes that I do and the pictures that I take; I don't want any guilt by association and be put in some negative light."
