VENICE, Calif. — DVD and magazine covers are becoming almost routine for Kagney Linn Karter, but that in no way diminishes the young starlet’s thrill upon being named the Penthouse Pet for June.

“Shooting with Emma was just amazing and it’s incredible that they picked me for Pet,” Kagney said. “I didn’t believe it until I saw it.”

The first clue Kagney had that she would be the June Pet came a few weeks ago when Penthouse Digital Media released Penthouse Letters: Wives’ Secret Fantasies. The cover featured Kagney and text reading, “Penthouse Pet Kagney Linn Karter.”

“I had no idea until then,” she said. “I freaked out when I saw it, but I couldn’t allow myself to get too excited until the issue actually came out, and now it’s out!”

The photos were taken by Penthouse photographer Emma Nixon. Riding her incredible wave of success, Kagney will make her much-anticipated feature dancing debut at the Spearmint Rhino in City of Industry later this week.

“I danced for years before I started doing porn,” said Kagney. “It’s something I’ve missed terribly and I’m really excited to get back on stage again. I love doing scenes, but there’s something special about having a live audience in front of you. You just can’t beat it.”

In 2007 Kagney was the runner-up in Déjà Vu’s Showgirl of the Year national competition. She will perform Thursday, May 28 through Saturday, May 30 at the Spearmint Rhino in City of Industry. The club is located at 15411 E. Valley Blvd., City of Industry, CA 91746. For more information call (626) 336-6892. For more information on Spearmint Rhino visit
