In addition, officials are explaining how the actress was chosen for a classroom full of children. The educational district in Compton will review the guest reader selection process.

I committed to this program with the understanding that people would have their own opinions about what I have done, who I am and what I represent,” Grey defends herself in a statement obtained by the Ministry of Gossip. “I am an actor. I am an artist. I am a daughter. I am a sister. I am a partner. I have a past that some people may not agree with, but it does not define who I am. I will not live in fear of it.”
Some parents in Compton have complained about Sasha’s visit to the school last week. “They could not find a fireman or a police officer?” asked parent Dudley Wheaton. “They had to get a porn star?”
Grey, who recently landed a part in the HBO show “Entourage,” visited Emerson Elementary School as part of its guest reader program. The visit by Sasha was arranged by an outside talent coordinator, the Compton Unified School District said in a statement.

The model defends herself to the public. The district also said that, contrary to media reports, the reading program was not part of the Reading Across America program.
