The RadarOnline story began: ”Time for the haters to put their money where their mouths are!” It added, “Despite critics slamming former Teen Mom-turned-porn star Farrah Abraham for her new stripping gig at Palazio Gentlemen’s Club in Austin, Abraham tells RadarOnline.com exclusively that she’s excited about her new job because she’s getting paid the big bucks.” It quoted her as saying “the club loved how hardworking and focused I was, so they offered me a $544,000 agreement to be celebrity house feature.” In a follow-up story Examiner.com wrote: “The 23-year-old reality TV star is not yet done with her five minutes of fame.

STEVEN HIRSCH “ENCAPSULATES” INDUSTRY REACTION TO FREE CONTENT – Xbiz.com has published an “informal survey” of the adult industry’s reaction to free content. Writer Jared Rutter reports on a survey of industry leaders and says “their views are encapsulated in this statement from Vivid Entertainment's Steven Hirsch, one of the architects of the porn marketing paradigm. ‘The adult industry is increasingly challenging. We all know this and there are fewer movies being shot. Traditional adult producers need to carve out their own niches of unique content to be competitive today. Because the marketplace is crowded and we are constantly fighting free porn, diversification to sell content across multiple venues is also essential. As in any super competitive industry, the smarter and stronger companies will survive.’ New delivery systems, diversified content, unique niches: all significant elements in today’s porn perspective.”
