‘Teen Mom’ Farrah Abraham’s sex tape? Sold! And to a high bidder.
“Teen Mom” and “Teen Mom 2" star Farrah Abraham has sold her sex tape for a sum reportedly in the high six figures — or somewhere in the neighborhood of $14,000 a minute for the 70 minutes of naked nasty goodness.
Or badness, depending on your point of view.
“I’m happy to confirm that we have purchased it,” Vivid Entertainment honcho Steve Hirsch said in a statement Monday. “We went after this movie as vigorously as any sex tape we’ve ever pursued. We felt it was definitely worth it, not only because of Farrah’s popularity, but because the footage itself is amazing. ...
“Farrah’s looks remind me of a young Kim Kardashian,” he said, “and we all know how her story turned out.”
Of course, Kardashian didn’t have the reality show before the sex tape. And she didn’t select an actual porn star, James Deen, as her costar in the Kimmy-and-Ray J. adventure.
The price-tag estimate comes courtesy of TMZ, which has a chatty relationship with Hirsch.
The less-than-demure title? “Farrah Superstar: Backdoor Teen Mom,” something Abraham, now nearly 22, seems somewhat uncomfortable with in the (fully clothed, absolutely not erotic) video above.
Interestingly enough, Abraham’s message to the Season 2 cast of “16 and Pregnant,” taped when she was a newly minted “Teen Mom,” contains telling nuggets of advice: “Make sure you have a plan for the future,” and “For the cameras, act like they’re not there and be yourself.” Check it out in the video clip below.
And in other Abraham news, TMZ reports that her attorney entered “not guilty” pleas on her behalf Monday to three drunk-driving-related charges in Nebraska: aggravated DUI, refusal to take a field test and disorderly conduct. Her trial is set for May 31.
