Blondes just want to go to law school

Beauty and brains aren’t always dished out separately – a point that former porn star and stripper Heather Swift just made by passing the hardest exam in the US – the California bar exam.

Swift (professionally known as Holly Price) was one of the lucky few that passed the exam, which had a failure rate of over 50 per cent this year.

“I took the July 2014 California bar exam (my first time taking any bar exam), and I PASSED. No, I did not get time and a half, nor do I have any inside connections to the California State Bar,” Swift told Above the Law.

“How did I do it? Because unbeknownst to many, women in the adult industry are intelligent and can matriculate through a cutthroat tier-three law school, and pass the hardest bar exam in history,” she said.

Swift may have just walked out of Hollywood but she’s stumbled right into a real-life sequel of Legally Blonde by opting for law as her way of giving haters the finger.

“As for those who snicker at women in the adult industry and who couldn’t pass the exam, stop laughing because a stripper porn star is apparently smarter than you,” she said.  

As a 2013 graduate of unranked Western State University College of Law, many might be surprised that Swift acquired the legal proficiency to pass such a diabolic examination.

Perhaps, the real shock here is that around 75 per cent of first-time takers from this less-than-prestigious college pass the exam, a proportion that is much higher than the average.
