Sue Nero: Ain’t Wastin’ Time No More (Part 2) – Podcast 126

In the first part of the Sue Nero interview, we heard about her upbringing and subsequent move to San Francisco where she started work in the adult film industry.

In this concluding episode, Sue remembers her move to New York, where she worked at the Melody Burlesk and the Harmony Theater, as well as becoming a fixture in the XXX rated film business.

It’s been a long difficult road. But what’s important is that she’s finally ready to confront it and talk about it.

This is part 2 of Sue Nero’s story. You can find part 1 here.

    I can’t tell you how excited I’ve been waiting for this second installment?

    Only disappointment: I want a Part 3!

    Thank you Sue!

    Sue Nero Was So Sexy Actress From The 70s 80s And Early 90s Awesome Article And Podcast Keep Up Good Work

    Wow….. hasn’t Sue aged so well? Great to see. I’ll confess I still haven’t had the time to listen to these two podcasts. So I’m still wondering whether Warhol starlet Geri Miller will pop up. Her time with Ringo Starr would be fascinating to hear about too.

  7. Corey · January 1, 2023 Reply

    Poignant and moving. She seems to have found peace. Thank you for encouraging Sue to speak.

  8. Robin · January 1, 2023 Reply

    Many thanks for yet more of these fascinating podcasts.

    Sue`s total openness in recalling her life experience up to the present reveals much honesty as a person.

    A great way to begin 2023

  10. shayne · January 1, 2023 Reply

    Wow. That was awesome. It’s great that Sue is still alive and looking forward to better things. It was very courageous and generous of her to share her story.

  11. Jimmy · January 1, 2023 Reply

    Seeing how gorgeous Sue is now…

    You know, Nina is in her 60s and still doing it…
    Annie Sprinkle talked about going into sex work on her twitter…

    …Just a thought

    • TC · January 1, 2023 Reply

      I am in total agreement with you, Jimmy.
      Sue looks absolutely stunning (As I imagine Nina/Annie do, also). Sixty-plus is still super HOT!! It’s like WTF… You can’t even start collecting full Social Security until you’re sixty-seven, nowadays.
      Not to mention, the Goddesses from the “Golden Age” are an unbelievable force to be reckoned with. They possess very special powers.

        Great interview. Honest, compelling and reflective. She was and is the real deal . She still looks great but more importantly appears excited about what’s ahead . Sue Nero is the real deal

    An absolutely heartfelt, warts-and-all interview, done with real care and honesty. I’d say this is one of your best, but I would have to keep saying that. Still, I DO think this was one of your best. Wonderful work, and to Sue, if you are reading this – you are such a survivor and an inspiration, and a hell of an entertaining listen too. Thank you for sharing your story.

    My favourite movie is Garage Girls because of She Nero! She’s only in the first five minutes 🤩🤩

  14. Cathy Gigante-Brown · January 2, 2023 Reply

    This makes me love my friend Sue even more. Her unabashed honesty, bravery and genuineness shines through. I’m so honored she mentioned me…and it was true, even at her worst, she was always loved and always kind.

  15. Phil · January 2, 2023 Reply

    I just finished listening and It’s so great for Sue to be able to speak her truth and tell her story and I want to thank Sue for sharing it with us. Sue I hope you get as much out of sharing your story as I did listening. Thanks again to The Rialto Report for the outstanding work. Happy New Year everyone.

    I am so glad she is my friend, I will always be there for her ,if finished my porn career with her in “Pussy Power, love you dear Sue, twas nice to see you for lunch in NYC 🕺☺️

  17. JCA · January 3, 2023 Reply

    She’s still stunningly gorgeous! And a beautiful smile to boot! This two-part series has been an absolute pleasure to listen to. Susan’s story had tumultuous turns, but honestly, that smile seems to signal that all-in-all, it’s been an interesting ride!

  18. Kevin · January 3, 2023 Reply

    The uplifting end of Part 2 was a real delight. One is never too old to be healthy, authentic, open, and happy. Bravo to Sue Nero’s immense courage to move back home, as well as have common sense to understand her needs. I’m so glad she is a survivor, and she didn’t have a tragic end.
    This is an inspiring (and inspired) interview. Thanks Rialto.

    What a great interview. What a great lady. And we are the same age!

  20. Polarpooh · January 5, 2023 Reply

    So glad she’s doing well in spite of everything she’s been through. She’s a survivor, and I love her even more. God bless you Susan, and thanks Rialto!

    It was great to hear Sue sharing her own story in her own words. This was a great interview.

    • Fred · January 8, 2023 Reply

      Great interview . Sue seems like a warm, intelligent, friendly person who is loyal smart and self aware . She is comfortable with who she is and was and I wish her the best. Stan, on the other hand…..

    What an incredible story and interview. Sue Nero was and still is an all-time Legend. Another excellent job well done, April.

    My Sue Nero Fantasy sure has changed since the 1980s.

    Back then, I pictured us running in the woods, in togas. Our privates flapping in the breeze.

    Now I fantasize about us ordering Chinese, listening to Leonard Cohen, and binging Seinfeld.

    I’m glad you’re sober but you broke Tatum O’neal’s anonymity!

  25. Susie · January 16, 2023 Reply

    Tatum Oneal is very open about her time in recovery and has been quite open about being in a women’s outpatient program. If she had not, I never would have said her name. Thank you to the rest of you for your kindness. I NEVER broke her anonymity . She is quite open about it. I think you are rude to say that. If anything, she may not want to be connected to a person from my past industry.

      HI Sue,
      Thank you so much for finally telling all it was a fascinating interview, I have been waiting to hear you again for so long & glad you are able to get on with your life. Also many thanks for April for the interview of my all time favourite Adult star..

    Enjoyed the Susan Nero interview, could not help feel bad for her, thinking to myself, I only lived across the Bay, when she was in first arrived in San Francisco. But as I was only 2 years younger, and dark hair gentile, not sure I was her type. Did catch up to her in the mid 90’s as she was touring though, told of my favorite scene with her & Jamie Gills, as he attempted to steal her jewelry.

  27. Sal Ferlaino · February 18, 2023 Reply

    Wow, what an Amazing interview.
    Such a Beautiful Woman inside and out.
    This Lady is a perfect example of a fighter that gets back up.
    I always had a big crush on Sue and I’m extremely happy to hear she’s ok . It sounds like her greatest decision was recently breaking free from the last control freak.
    Way to go Sue, you have absolutely nothing to be ashamed of.
    Please continue to be yourself.

    Obviously it’s great to hear from Sue. But it’s also great to see so many positive reply’s in the comments. I always felt Sue should have been a bigger star, so it’s great to see so many warm responses to her interview. I hope Sue comes back every now and then to let us know how she is doing!

    Hello Susie

    I really hope you see this message off me cos I think about you often. I remember the first time I saw you at a meet and thought wow what a beautiful woman. And then we went for dinner. Close friends for a while and then I had to leave NY. I tried to call you but your number changed. I hope you remember me, the sheep skin coat and the painting I left you when I had to come home? Anyways just to say I’ve loved listening to your voice, and will always love yiu. Ceri xxx

    Fantastic interview from a beautiful lady, so candid, very brave by Sue.

    Happy birthday to Sue for the 3rd February.

    Hope life is treating her well and I wish her only the best for the future.

    All the positive comments here show how loved and admired she was. In her own way she made people happy.
