'Heartbroken' Shelley Lubben Goes Out Drinking with Gal Pal While Boyfriend Joe Valley Sits in a Visalia Jail

Shelley Lubben is practically joined at the hip by a colorful area woman named Jana Hougen. Think of her as part drinking buddy, part 'girl Friday'... and part something else.

Jana Hougen


Porterville, Calif. -- Shelley Lubben's live-in boyfriend Joe Valley was arrested Tuesday Nov. 7, 2017 after he allegedly struck and killed a 51-year old cyclist less than 2 miles from the Lubben ranch property.


Since that date, Lubben, a disgraced anti-porn crusader and family values minister, has been composing sad but vague social media posts such as:



Can't sleep. Brokenhearted. Someday I will talk about the devastation. But let me tell you GOD IS GOOD!

Well, grieving time appears to be over -- tonight, December 28, Shelley and her bff Jana Hougen were out at boozing it up at local watering hole, The Antlers Roadhouse.



Of all the gin joints...



If the bar sounds familiar, that may be because the Antlers is the spot where Shelley's boyfriend, Joe Valley was seen drinking on the day of the fatal crash that took the life of Octavio Munguia

The Antlers, located at 30990 Highway 190 in Porterville, stands 16 miles down the road from the collision site. 


Shelley and Joe were known to frequent the bar; according to a source, they would drink "a lot" and "she would dance like a stripper."


Locals also report that Hougen was once 86'd from the bar.  Jana and a girlfriend "were all over every male in the bar, begging for drinks," says one witness.


Multiple sources in Porterville confirm Jana and Shelley are inseparable. One told me, "She is always with Shelley, all the time."

Shelley Lubben visited the bar with Jana in tow on Nov. 13,  and "acted surprised" to learn that Joe had already been drinking before he arrived. She then announced to the room that he had stolen her card to buy the drink they served him before cutting him off.

Yet, somehow it took Shelley nearly a week to investigate.

The company you keep

So, who is Jana Hougen?

Well, she turned 39 on Nov. 1, and she has spent some time in nearby Visalia. 

Ex-adult performer and Pink Cross Foundation survivor Michelle Avanti recalls, "When I worked in the bars in [Visalia] long long ago she was 86'd out of them too. A drunk."

Huge also uses the monikers JanaDoll and SweetJanaDoll -- and she has a profile on this website:

Jana seeks a Sugar Daddy, ages 30 - 90. Basically, if you've got a wallet and a pulse, you're in.




She also has an interesting PhotoBucket page, where she has posted tpics such as these:




Yes, the best friend of an alcoholic anti-porn and anti-sex work crusader -- not to mention pastor -- is a sugar baby and reputed bar fly who's fond of some interesting memes.

Now toss in the following comment left here on this site:


I have confirmed that Stan Atkinson was indeed the first foreman at the Lubben property in Springville, and that the Lubbens did fire him.

Shelley is expected to take the witness stand in at least one criminal proceeding in January. Looks like she might be in for some interesting questions.

This story just keeps getting better and better.
