'Teen Mom' Star Signs Sex Tape Deal for Nearly $1 Million Huffington Post
Putting to rest speculation about whether her much-talked-about encounter with porn star James Deen was done for a personal keepsake or a professional porn tape, Farrah Abraham of MTV’s “Teen Mom” closed a deal for almost $1 million for the tape, The Huffington Post reports.
The takeaway: It was a professional porn tape.
The tape was mocked in the media, with some reports calling it "the first official fake sex tape," as we reported earlier this month.
“So much for Farrah Abraham's claims that she made a professionally produced porn video as a personal keepsake -- not that we were buying that for a second, in the first place,” the story reports. “Last week, we saw the 21-year-old playing in a bikini with her 4-year-old daughter, Sophia, after returning from a meeting with Vivid Entertainment CEO Steve Hirsch -- and it appears the meeting was a success.”
Abraham struck an agreement to have Vivid sell the tape featuring her and Deen for almost $1 million, the piece notes, citing a report by TMZ.
“Vivid seems to be betting that there are plenty of people out there willing to shell out their hard-earned money to watch the former reality star get it on for 70 minutes in the film, which will have the ultra-classy title ‘Farrah Superstar: Backdoor Teen Mom,’” Huff Post adds. “While the large six-figure payday is impressive for a reality star's porn video, it's less than Abraham initially hoped to sell it for, as she told Us Weekly that she wouldn't let it go for less than a ‘couple million.’"
Abraham wrapped up her run on the MTV series in September, and reportedly misses the spotlight.
“Sources told Us Weekly that the former ‘Teen Mom’ cast member is ‘desperate’ to revive her career since her stint on the MTV show ended,” Huff Post notes.
