VIVID STUDIO INSIDER FOR FEBRUARY 21, 2014
FARRAH ABRAHAM DOESN’T NEED $1 MILLION – Last Friday afternoon, Vivid chief Steven Hirsch offered Farrah Abraham, the star of two blockbuster Vivid Celeb sex tapes, $1-million if she would take and pass a sanctioned polygraph test. In making the public offer, Steven said: “Farrah has seemingly made a cottage industry out of telling lies, She now says that she was drugged and raped more than once while she was promoting her first sex tape, Farrah Superstar: Backdoor Teen Mom, last year.” We challenge Farrah to take our sanctioned polygraph test to prove whether or not she was telling the truth. If she passes the polygraph test, we will give her $1-million. If not, “Farrah needs to publically state that she was not being truthful and agree to forego all future and past royalties on both of her tapes. We look forward to her response.” Steven gave Farrah 48 hours to respond to his offer for her to pick up a quick $1 million, but did not hear back from her. Not surprisingly, the media had a field day with the huge offer. An article in the Las Vegas Sun was typical: “IS FARRAH TELLING THE TRUTH? A promotional visit by sex-tape vixen Farrah Abraham to a Las Vegas strip club last summer has come back to haunt her. Vivid Entertainment chief Steven Hirsch has offered the star of two of his bestselling sex tapes a $1 million polygraph challenge.” A story in Fishwrapper.com by Sarah Taylor did not mince words, starting with the headline: “For One Last Time (All Together Now), Farrah Abraham is a Coward Piece of Crap.” Taylor went on to write: “So we're basically all in agreement that Farrah Abraham is a pretty reprehensible person with a spotty history for telling the truth. Or being, you know, at all likable. Things haven't changed, and it only gets worse. The latest, though, about being raped and drugged while on tour for her second -- yes, second -- sex tape has taken the cake. For once, Farrah has kept her big mouth shut about her intentions, and when approached by Steve Hirsch -- Vivid's head honcho -- who offered her $1 million dollars to take a polygraph test that produced positive results that she was, in fact, raped and pillaged and drugged whilst on tour, her lawyer had this to say: ‘At this point in time my client has no comment to the offer made by Vivid. That is all the information I can provide you at this time.’ Steve, of course, responded to Farrah's ridiculousness and responded: ‘This is exactly what I expected from Farrah. She’s a fraud. We know she loves money, but once she gets called out she’s afraid to respond. First you can’t stop the lies and then you can’t find her. She’s incapable of telling the truth.” Fishwrapper also posted video of its interview with Steven.
TMZ PROVES FARRAH MAKES HARD CASH FOR HER PORN WORK - Although Farrah Abraham declined to accept the $1 million polygraph challenge (above), journalists offered evidence that she has been well-compensated for her Vivid Celeb work. TMZ.com reported: “You ARE A PORN STAR; And Your Bank Account Proves It.” The staff written story then went on: “Farrah Abraham is a porn hypocrite ...she CLAIMS she's not a porn star and is fighting the release of a sequel to her first flick but she's privately hounding porn producers to ante up a fortune in XXX royalties. Farrah's first film -- "Backdoor Teen Mom" -- was released a year ago, yet it's still a top seller. TMZ has learned Farrah repeatedly called Vivid Entertainment last month for her quarterly royalty check. We found out Vivid wired her $93,927.72 for the last quarter of 2013.”
The TMZ story also reprinted a page from Vivid’s contract with Farrah. Other media, including KDramaStars, picked up on the story and reproduced a redacted shot of the contract under the headline: “Farrah Abraham Backdoor Teen Mom Update: CAUGHT Lying About Porn Sequel Farrah 2--Couples Therapy Star Makes $93,000 From Vivid on Her Sex Tape.” The KDrama Stars story included these disclosures: “Farrah Abraham Backdoor Teen Mom Update: Abraham is once again up to her old tricks. This time Farrah is lying about her about her porn sequel, Farrah 2: Backdoor And More. Farrah is saying that she never gave Vivid Entertainment the rights to release a sex tape sequel, yet TMZ just acquired a legal document that proves Vivid Entertainment has every right to release Farrah 2: Backdoor And More because Farrah herself agreed to the terms! The document that was emailed to Vivid by Farrah Abraham herself states that the rights to all video(s), clips, audio, photographs and other material are to be given to Vivid Entertainment. If all porn videos are to be given to Vivid, then the Backdoor sequel, Farrah 2: Backdoor And More can be used by Vivid however they want. Yet Farrah has hired lawyers to fight Vivid.
Not only is Farrah lying about the rights, but TMZ also stumbled upon her bank account that shows Abraham made $93,000 off the Backdoor sequel! Looks like Abraham is caught telling fibs once again. Farrah would lie about the color of her underwear if given the chance.”
AIP DAILY FEATURES INTERVIEW WITH VIVID RADIO HOST ASH HOLLYWOOD– Popular adult site AIP Daily has posted an extensive interview with Ash Hollywood, host of Vivid Radio’s program “Tap That Ash.” She was asked, “how did the show get started and what kind of things do
you do on the show?” Her answer: “I used to be a guest a lot on Playboy Radio and that slowly evolved to me being on a lot of comedian podcasts. A couple years ago I began my own called “Ashaholics” podcast and then they offered me my own show on Vivid Radio SiriusXM Channel 102. I had some amazing people like Glenn from “Evil Angel Radio,” which is on Vivid Radio Friday nights, whisper into Vivid’s ear to give me one and I’m so grateful for it.” She was also asked what advice she would give someone who was considering an adult entertainment career. Her answer: “Remember that when you unveil yourself for everyone to see on the internet it is sexually liberating, although you will always be serving your time. The after effects of this kind of courage trail (you) even after your relationship ends with the camera. Be prepared.” Here’s her response when asked about her recent stint during the opening of Vivid Cabaret NYC: “I was in NYC recently for the opening of Vivid Cabaret in midtown Manhattan. It’s an awesome club with unbelievably gorgeous women and the tallest strip pole in the city, 25 ft., and Vivid Radio has its own broadcast booth in the club. I loved being on radio in NYC and plan on going back there soon to do it again. I got some great tips from the girls who perform there.
CRAVE ONLINE ON THOR XXX – CraveOnline.com asked this question as it began its recent review Thor XXX: An Axel Braun Parody: “How is it these superhero porn parodies capture the spirit of comic books better than many of their ‘mainstream’ counterparts?” Reviewer Witney Seibold went on to say, “Axel Braun is perhaps a bigger comic book geek than Kevin Feige and Joss Whedon combined. Sure, the high-rollers have billions of dollars to bandy about on their comic book properties, and they can most certainly afford better special effects, slicker photography, and ostensibly better actors, but it's Braun – with his now-extensive string of superhero porn parodies – who has more accurately captured the mood and the spirit of comic books. Despite how true-to-the-page something like Thor: The Dark World may claim to be on the surface, Thor XXX actually bothers to cut deep, producing spot-on costume reproductions, gleefully involving obscure characters only the biggest fans know about, and often referring to actual recorded comic book backstory, rather than inventing an ever-so-slightly altered version of it…So Compared to the few other superhero porn parodies I have seen (and yes, this is a genre with its own cottage industry), Thor XXX is one of the stronger.”
