VIVID MAKES THE ‘TONIGHT SHOW’ MONOLOGUE -- Jay Leno had some fun with Pippa Middleton last week, and Vivid helped him out. Here’s a portion of Leno’s monologue: “according to ""USA Today,"" Vivid Entertainment -- you know they're the ones that make all the porn films. [applause] Well, you guys know. Sure. They have a standing offer of $5 million. They'll only pay $5 million for Pippa Middleton -- you know, Kate Middleton's sister -- to be in a porn movie; $5 million to do one scene. Well of course, this would be a total embarrassment for the Royal Family. I mean, almost 1,000 years nobody in that family has ever had a job. So this would be huge. [laughter and applause ] I mean, actually getting paid for work.”

VIVID REFERENCED IN JAMES FRANCO SPECULATION -- The Los Angeles Times commented last week on reports that actor James Franco is starring in a sex tape. “Just don't expect his raunchy home movie to get scooped up by Vivid Video anytime soon,” reported the L.A. Times Show Tracker blog. To fill out the back story, the blog noted: “As he explained on Tuesday night's ‘Conan,’ the sex tape began like so many do: As a bit of youthful experimentation. ‘When I was young, it's not like I went down to Van Nuys and tried to break into the porn industry. I got a video camera and my girlfriend and I decided to film ourselves. [We] watched it back and said Yeah, well, let's never watch that again,' he recalled.’
