Note: The industry was rocked recently when we found out about the apparent suicide of the always smiling Vayda Kiss. Always upbeat and positive, and always quick with a hello and a grin, Vayda was always a bright spot. We are all still feeling the sting of sadness as I post this. Vayda, you will be missed.
Below is an article from ZiFi, Quest Magazine writer, StripClubJournals.com blogger, and contributor to PANDA. You can also listen to her segments with PANDA’s own Enrique Arellano on The Adventures of the Mayor at PlanetPlatypus.com – Ron S.
Vayda Kiss-A Shooting Star Flys Away
“Everything happens for a reason. Clip my wings and I will still figure out how to fly.”
This is one of the last things Vayda Kiss, aka Nicole LeeAnn Smith, told me when I was interviewing her for Miss Pole Champ USA. Miss Vayda Kiss is the only two-time winner of Miss Pole Champ USA (2011 and 2014) and co-hosted the event earlier this year. As the adult industry mourns the loss of one of the greats of our time, we want her to be remembered for her life and heart which will continue her legacy!
“She was so stunning. She was one of my idols and when I met her; so warm and down to Earth.” ~Natasha Nova, winner of Miss Pole Champ USA 2015 and crowned by Vayda Kiss
“Vayda Kiss symbolizes the pure heart. The smile that made you feel warm and fuzzy. The hug of an angel. The words of wisdom and the love of a true human being. We will all miss your presence.” ~Gracie Cardoso, owner of The World Pageants
