Adams became popular with fans, and signed a two year contract with Vivid Entertainment in August, 2002, officially becoming a "Vivid Girl". The contract required Adams to appear in eight movies per year for the company.[6]

In 2002, Vivid hired Adams to star in Debbie Does Dallas: The Revenge, with plans for her to star in future films in the series. Vivid representatives considered Adams to be appropriate for the role, because of her blonde hair, her experience with football, and her Texas heritage.

On August 2, 2004, Adams appeared with Savanna Samson on Fox News's The O'Reilly Factor, to promote their book, How to Have a XXX Sex Life.
