Tera Patrick Net Worth $15 Million

Tera is of mixed ancestry; her mother is Thai and her father has English, Dutch and Irish roots. Tera grew up with her hippie father, as her mother left when she was 10. When she was 12 she started taking weekend classes in modeling at the Barbizon School of Modeling, and two years later was hired by a Japanese modeling agency, which soon brought her to Japan. There, her career was off to a bad start; during one of the photoshoots, she lost her virginity to a photographer who drugged her with valium, and also made her drink large amounts of champagne. This led to her addiction on valium and alcohol as well, on which she spent her paychecks. Her father brought her back to the US, once he found out she was sexually active and in trouble. He complained also to her modelling agency, stating that she was underage, which certainly influenced her return to the US. Tera then studied nursing at Boise State University, and also received EMT certification from a vocational school.

Nevertheless, she started a career in the adult film industry in 1999. So far, she has appeared in more than 100 film titles, and earned several awards, including the AVN Award in category Best Tease Performance in the film “Island Fever” (2001), and AVN Award in category Best New Startlet, while also earned Hot d’Or Award in category Best American Actress for the film “Crossroads”, and many other awards.

In February 2000, she was the “Pet of the Month” for the magazine Penthouse, while she also appeared in Playboy the same year. She also has her own production company, Teravision INC, which she started with her now ex-husband Evan Seinfeld, also a pornographic actor.

Tera also made several appearances on television, including in such TV series as “Chelsea Lately” (2007), “Secret Lives of Women” (2008), and many others, which also improved her wealth.

Tera has also authored a book with help from writer and journalist Carrie Borzillo; entitled “Sinner Takes All”, released in 2010, and it follows her life, from hardships linked with her career beginnings to rise to stardom.

Regarding her personal life, she was married to Evan Senfeld from 2004 until 2009. Presently, she is in a relationship with Tony Acosta, with whom she has a daughter born in 2012.

Quotes

#Quote
1[on informing her family of her porn career] Actually the conversation was last year at Christmas. I was like "Dad, I'm in the business," and he actually already knew. He had an idea because I started out doing nude modeling and I started out doing softcore, so it was kind of a [slow] transition. It was something that he kind of expected.
2I'm absolutely not repulsed by women; I'm not sexually attracted to women - there's a difference. I love men. I love making love to men, and in my personal life I've never been bisexual, and I have no desire to be bisexual. I do like beautiful women like everybody else.
3To be really honest with you, I'm not really a fan of porno. It was definitely something I had fantasized about, like being in a movie, being in a porno movie. I just never thought that it would get this big. I hadn't even seen a porno till I was like 18, and I just remember the guy in it was Tom Byron, and I was like, "He's hot!" And to this day I've never worked with Tom. God bless you, Tom. But he's a nice guy and I'd really like to work with him if my contract and his contract permits.
4[Interview with Roger T. Pipe, July 2000] I did the fashion modeling in New York until I was 18, then I took four years off to go to school in Idaho. I got my degree in nursing. I'm an RN and have a BS in Microbiology. I wanted to attend the University of Southern California. That's why I moved out here. I got into modeling for financial reasons. I started doing the adult side after I was introduced to Suze Randall. I was a Penthouse Pet and I was in Playboy as well. I just started getting covers and centerfolds and it was a natural progression into videos. I had always had a fantasy about working in front of the camera. My first movie was by a man named Andrew Blake and it was a very softcore-type movie. I was easing my way into things and did some simulated stuff with other girls.
5[Interview with Roger T. Pipe, July 2000] I was kind of dipping my feet in the water with the Andrew Blake film. Then I decided I wanted to work with men. In my personal life I am not attracted to women at all. I can admire a beautiful woman, but I didn't feel comfortable working with women on that level. I treat the business like a business because I have a business mind. I really enjoy my work and my scenes and I think that's part of the reason why I haven't gotten burned out. I've been able to pick and choose to a great extent and that helps. Since I do have a nursing career to fall back on, I am not really forced to be in the business. I stay because I truly enjoy the work.
