I wanted to post this, so that there was information regarding her tragic and untimely passing, and to hopefully prevent any rumors. This will be the last "main" post in this journal, however, it will remain online, so friends and fans can make posts. It WILL be monitored, however, as any inappropriate posts will be deleted, screened, etc.
R.I.P. Julie - you were very special to all of us.
Sad news to tell regarding adult film star Julie Robbins, who was tragically killed Thursday September 22, 2005, as her car ran off the road and smashed into a power pole earlier in the day. The accident trapped her in her burning 2005 Ford sport utility vehicle. Brandy Koonts, (A.K.A. Julie Robbins) who was airlifted to Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center after the wreck, was pronounced dead at 10:55 p.m. Thursday.
Julie was the star of countless films, most recently seen in Blonde Factory (SIN CITY), as well as Bounced Check Bitches, Public Enemy #1, and the Victoria Givens world record video. For 2005 Julie was voted Miss Nude Porn Internet, as well as having been nominated as Feature Performer Newcomer Of The Year by Exotic Dancer Magazine this year, and was thrilled for the recognition. Recently she had been the feature dancer at Tootsie’s Cabaret in Miami, Florida, where she had performed several times over the past year. She had called me from there, telling me how much she loved the energy there, and that she couldn’t wait to come back to Las Vegas over the Thanksgiving holiday to do some more shooting for her website, and work on some video with me. More than that, she was truly a genuine down to earth person, who loved to express herself in the industry, and as a friend.
I have been the webmaster, and photographer for Julie’s Official site xxxjulierobbins.com
for over three years now, and we have developed quite a great working relationship in and away from the industry. She will always remain one of my favorite people.

Woman dies after fiery vehicle accident
BY ROBERT COOPER
A woman died Thursday night after her car ran off Junior Order Home Road and smashed into a power pole earlier in the day. The accident trapped her in her burning 2005 Ford sport utility vehicle.
Brandy Dayle Koonts, who was airlifted to Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center after the wreck, was pronounced dead at 10:55 p.m. Thursday.
Koonts, 26, of Holloways Church Road, was traveling east on the road around 2:19 p.m. Thursday when the accident happened, but many of the details are not yet known.
"I was looking out the window and I heard a boom and the power lines shook," Joel Lopp said. He still has a burn spot in his yard where the car tipped on its side and burned. "I thought it was a tractor trailer caught on the power lines."
N.C. Highway Patrol troopers can only determine that the contributing circumstance to the accident was driving in a "careless, erratic manner," which is a general term used any time a driver loses control of the car. The speed limit in that section of the road is 55 mph.
Lopp called 911 and bystanders began to gather around the car in an attempt to help her.
"Quite a few people" helped tip the car back onto its wheels, Lopp said, but they could not help Koonts out of the car.
The Linwood Fire Department arrived on the scene first. While volunteers "broke the windows out, we were working on the fire," Capt. Kenneth Everhart said. Koonts was breathing as she was taken from the scene.
But Koonts had burns over 100 percent of her body, Everhart said: "She was burned from head to toe. The car was fully engulfed."
The South Lexington Fire Department also arrived on the scene and used the jaws of life device to free Koonts from the vehicle, Everhart said. Air Care arrived within seven minutes after being called.
This accident is probably the third on that street within a year, Lopp said. "It's a straight stretch so people think they can go 100 miles an hour down the road."
