Retired porn star Jill Kelly has General David Petraeus to thank for an exciting new gig. The fact that she has been confused with Jill Kelley, the woman who brought the former CIA Director's sex scandal to light after receiving threatening e-mails from his mistress Paula Broadwell, has caused porn production company Vivid Entertainment to be very interested in the former "WMB: Weapons of Masturbation" star.

TMZ reports that Kelly has been asked to host a military-themed porn marathon next January on VividTV because of the fact her name is similar to Kelley's. The marathon will reportedly feature 10 films from Vivid's library.

"I know that you support our troops and so do we -- and what better way to show that support than to join us as a VividTV Host!" Vivid founder Steven Hirsch wrote to Kelly in a letter obtained by TMZ.

Hirsch isn't discriminating between the two women, though. He allegedly also offered the same hosting gig to Kelley, though somehow it doesn't seem like the volunteer liaison to the MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Fla. would go for this. But, as TMZ says, "it's for America," so you never know.
