Nadia Hilton is back.

Former Central New York pastor Crystal DiGregorio has returned to her stage name and is doing porn again on OnlyFans, an online subscription service popular with adult entertainers. She’s still an ordained minister, but said she stepped away from the New Beginnings Christian Life church in Fulton, N.Y., after getting tired of dealing with judgmental parishioners.

“I’m not in any particular (religious) group anymore. I decided to step back from all that after seeing a lot of judgment from church people. Very judgmental,” she told syracuse.com | The Post-Standard in a phone interview.

DiGregorio, who grew up in Oswego and now lives in Clay, appeared in more than 100 films over 10 years as porn actress “Nadia Hilton,” earning $300,000 a year. She gave it all up in 2015 when she found God and her then-husband David Bassette; they both served as pastors at the Fulton church until they divorced.

DiGregorio, 37, has since remarried and embraced her famous alter ego again on social media. She opened up about her experiences last month in a video for “Brand New Me,” an international YouTube series for truly (formerly known as Barcroft TV) that focuses on “amazing true stories celebrating difference, maintaining a sense of wonder and confronting the extreme.” The channel has 5.8 billion views total and DiGregorio’s video has already been watched more than 200,000 times on Facebook and YouTube.

“After porn I did a 180 and became a pastor, and now I just want to be me,” she said in the video.

DiGregorio told syracuse.com that she does not do porn scenes with other people on OnlyFans. She still considers it porn, but is more like an adult model whose fans can message her one-and-one and ask for her to wear (or not wear) specific things in solo photos or videos.

“People are pretty respectful. I don’t have a lot of issues on that,” she said.

OnlyFans has 130 million users and 2 million creators who have collectively earned $5 billion, including many sex workers who joined during the Covid-19 pandemic when in-person strip clubs and brothels shut down. The site made headlines last month when it said it would block sexually explicit content on its app to appease banks and payment processors, but quickly dropped the planned ban after partners promised to support “all genres of creators.”

DiGregorio said she still goes to church, but is no longer contracted with an agency or an adult video company, allowing her to choose what she does and when. That’s a big change from when she was a pastor and was told she couldn’t show skin, wear makeup, or have visible tattoos.

“Doing OnlyFans as a Christian, I know I’m going to have criticism,” she said in the truly video. “The way I look at posting adult content is: God brought me into this world naked. Posting pictures naked I don’t think is this big huge crime or, you know, this big sin.

“I’m happy being in the middle. Not all porn, and not all church.”

Her husband Andrew told truly that he fully supports her (”As long as it doesn’t break up our marriage, I’m down with it”) and even helps manage her OnlyFans page for her. People who are interested in following DiGregorio can sign up at onlyfans.com and search for “Nadia Hilton.”

DiGregorio previously said she hated doing adult films, but embraced it for a while, even opening an Oswego nightclub with her name on it: Crystal. The club closed after a few years, though, and Bassette had both legal and financial trouble, forcing her to file for bankruptcy. She broke her nose in a 2014 car crash and was arrested for drunk driving. Her ex-boyfriend, fired Syracuse police sergeant Kevin Blair, sued her for $1 million, alleging years of abuse and a smear campaign that cost him his job.

But now she’s a happily married mother of four who’s accepted who she is, flaws and all, and wants others to do the same.

“I don’t judge anybody,” she told syracuse.com. “People can live their lives and do whatever they want to do.”

Louisiana priest arrested for alleged threesome on church altar: report

A Louisianapriest who was arrested for obscenitylast week was allegedly caught having sex with two dominatrices on the altar of his church, court documents revealed, according to reports.

A witness in Pearl River, northeast of New Orleans, called police on Sept. 30 after allegedly viewing Rev. Travis Clark, 37, through a window in a state of undress on the altar romantically engaged with two high-heeled, corseted women. Clark was allegedly partially dressed in his priestly attire.

The group had allegedly set up stage lighting and appeared to be recording the encounter on a cell phone, according to the New Orleans Advocate.

The witness had become suspicious when noticing the lights at Saints Peter and Paul Roman Catholic Church were on late at night. The alleged incident was recorded and showed to police.

St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office

Clark, who has been the pastor at the church since last year, was arrested for allegedly having sex in a publicly visible location.

The two accused women, Mindy Dixon, 41, and Melissa Cheng, 23, were also arrested.

Dixon is an adult film actress and works as a dominatrix, according to the New Orleans Advocate.

A social media post from Dixon the day before her arrest said she was going to New Orleans to meet another dominatrix and “defile a house of God,” the newspaper reported.

Clark was also the chaplain of a nearby Catholic high school. He was ordained as a priest in 2013.

The Archdiocese of New Orleans said it had suspended Clark on the day of his arrest, according to WWL-TV in New Orleans.

“What upsets me is, why did he have to do that there?” Town Council member Kat Walsh said. “I’m upset for all of us, the parishioners of the church. Why there?”

Archbishop Greg Aymond went to the church days later for a church ritual to restore the altar’s sanctity, the station reported.

On the same day as the arrest, another New Orleans priest, Rev. Pat Wattigny, revealed he had allegedly sexually abused a minor in 2013, the New Orleans Advocate reported. He was removed from the ministry immediately.

Clark had taken over the chaplain position at the high school for Wattigny after he resigned last summer over allegedly inappropriate texts with a student. Clark was released from jail on a $25,000 bond and could face up to three years in prison.

Neither the archdiocese nor Clark have made public comment about the arrest.

SCHENECTADY — A 31-year-old woman faces misdemeanor charges for allegedly stalking and sending sexually explicit nude photos to the cellphone of the wife of a veteran Schenectady cop when he tried to break off their affair, according to a criminal complaint.

Kimberly Duncan is charged with fourth-degree stalking and third-degree obscenity in the incident between March 4 and Monday, according to court papers. Duncan is accused of sending “nude photographs depicting her breast and vaginal area with an obscene performance” to the cellphone of the wife of Sean Clifford, 48.

He is the older brother of a police Chief Eric Clifford and a seasoned police canine officer.

Sean Clifford said in a statement to the Times Union said he is sorry for his conduct.

“This is a difficult time for my family and I am doing all I can to protect them,” he said. “I sincerely apologize to my family for the embarrassment that this has brought them.”

On Friday, the police chief referred questions to the New York State Police.

State Police spokesman Mark Cepiel was out the office Friday and could not be reached for comment.

The investigation was handled by Investigator James Castiglione with the State Police barracks in Princetown.

The complaint alleges that from March 4 to April 16, Duncan “at various times and various locations, including a restaurant in Schenectady … intentionally, knowingly, and unlawfully and for no legitimate purpose engaged in a course of conduct directed at” Sean Clifford’s wife by calling her cellphone to cause fear in the woman and her family.

Duncan was arraigned Wednesday in Schenectady City Court and released pending a May 2 court appearance.
