 VIVID ENTERTAINMENT WILL RELEASE GRANNY'S CASTING COUCH ON VIVID.COM JULY 28TH  The movie is directed by former Saigon Kick/Skid Row rock ‘n roll drummer Phil Varone, whose recent film 100% Real Senior Swingers was an instant hit and showed off his interest in sex with people no matter what their age. “Age means nothing when it comes to sex and fun!” says Varone.  In Granny’s Casting Couch, Varone directed four grandmothers who auditioned as if they were ready for any adventure. In the process he lets them experience the sex of a lifetime.  Sexology experts say there is no age limit on sexuality and sexual activity. The old adage ‘use it or lose it’ seems to apply to enjoying sex well into one’s later years.  The lively cast of “grannies” demonstrates enthusiastically that they know how to use it and they dispel the myth that seniors lose interest in sex. They include Ciara Blue, Kristine Cumz, Tracy Licks and Rebecca. Male actors include Brad Knight, Elijah Case, Sean Ashton and Bill Blast.

 XBIZ FEATURES MICHAEL KLEIN INTERVIEW - News of Michael Klein’s appointment as president of Vivid Entertainment’s broadcast and television division has received extensive coverage. Among the top business media carrying the story about Michael’s new position were XBiz, AVN, MultiChannelNews, TheStreet, Marketwatch, Reuters, Bloomberg and many others. XBiz.com posted an extensive interview with Michael just days after his appointment. The interview by Bob Johnson begins: “Only a handful of adult industry executives can list three or more top tier companies on their resumes. And even less can point to major accomplishments that have impacted those businesses during their tenure. Michael H. Klein is one captain that has done both. Having held top spots with Playboy, Hustler and now as president of Vivid Entertainment's broadcast and Internet division, Klein’s experience and knowledge — along with major business coups — have continuously positioned him as one of adult’s luminaries regularly asked to share his in-depth smarts and strategies in broadcasting, programming and content monetization at numerous industry events, panels and seminars.” Michael said his “main tasks will be to grow Vivid TV beyond its already impressive rollout and make it the top adult broadcasting company in the world, while at the same time improve the Vivid Internet business.” He said his job will be made easier because “Vivid represents the future. It was never a print-based company. It has a fabulous archive, the most award-winning movies in the industry and, of course, unmatched celebrity sex tapes.”

 THE TRAVELING ASH - Ash Hollywood, the adorable blonde bombshell VividRadio host, has a pretty glamorous life. She loves to travel and is currently in The Big Apple after journeying to Barcelona, London and Singapore. She’ll be telling listeners all about the intimate side of her trip on her show “Tap that Ash” on Mondays from 1-2pm PT and Tuesdays from 4-5pm. Listeners can also hear Ash on the SiriusXM app Channel 791. We know that she has a big photo shoot scheduled in the city with renowned photographer Kike Calvo and we can’t wait to see the results. She’ll end her visit to by stopping off at the hottest strip club in town, Vivid Cabaret on
E. 37th St., to say hello to the performers and fans and yes, to pose again for paparazzi who heard she was in town.

 MIMI’S ‘INFAMOUS SEX TAPE’ MAKES FASHION NEWS – Mimi Faust’s Vivid sex tape Mimi & Nikko: Scandal in Atlanta continues its best seller run and continues to make news. VH1 has been covering the Mimi story as has the fashion media. FashionNStyle.com is the latest to write about Mimi and her sex tape with a report in its “The Eye” section under the headline “LHHATL Newbie Margeaux Simms Says Mimi Faust And Nikko Smith Were Using Each Other.” The story reports that actor (and Nikko’s wife) Margeaux Simms claims Mimi Faust “is still playing the victim in sex tape with Nikko Smith. Love & Hip Hop Atlanta newbie blasts cast mate and husband for using each other.” Reprising a VH1 story, FashionStyle.com says Margeaux believes “Mimi still has a lot more owning up to do before the air clears between the two of them…however, Margeaux doesn't seem to think the infamous moment in the sex tape where Mimi was seen hanging from a shower rod was something the VH1 star was forced into creating. ‘People have different versions of the truth. There's like one, two and in the middle there's really the truth. I was annoyed, because are you saying he forced you to hold on to the rod? I just couldn't understand…I'm the type of girl I think [is] brutally honest to the point where it's 2015... like I watch porn, there are tons of women that do it and there's nothing wrong with it. Just do it and own it, but I feel like doing it then saying that he forced you to do it or it was all his idea... I'm just going to stay completely calm and just wait ‘til they're finished. Then maybe we can have a conversation.’"

 ADULT SUPER STAR TORI BLACK AT VIVID GENTLEMEN’S CLUB HOUSTON —Gorgeous adult super star Tori Black is the headliner this week at Vivid Gentlemen’s Club in Houston. The club is a licensee of Vivid and is located at 2618 Winrock Blvd., just off Westheimer Rd., in Houston’s Briargrove area. Tori is the only woman to receive the prestigious AVN Female Performer of the Year award twice. The curvy 5’9” brunette was born in Seattle and started her adult career in Fort Lauderdale while she was attending college and looking for part time work. She sent photos of herself to a local talent agency and the rest is history. Additional recognition that she’s garnered includes the XRCO Award for Female Performer of the Year, Maxim Magazine naming her as one of the 12 top female stars in the industry, CNBC noting that she was one of the dozen most popular stars in the adult business, plus awards from CAVR, F.A.M.E., Galaxy, XBiz and NightMoves magazine. Tori says she has taken her many awards “as more of a personal character reference than anything else. There are a lot of beautiful women out there and a lot of women who are heightened in their sexuality. I think the reason I got these awards was because of my personality, who I am and what I stand for. It’s an honor and it’s nice to feel appreciated and celebrated. Of course I was humbled by it.”

 FLESHBOT WAYBACK REVIEW OF BOBBY SOX – Fleshbot.com reached back nearly 20 years this week for a review of the famous Vivid movie Bobby Sox. The headline on the Fleshbot story by Holly Kingstown read: Monster Porno Was A Monster Hit.” The Throwback Thursday article went on to say, “Bobby Sox was the smash hit of 1997 and it still is one incredible movie.  Directed by one of porn's true but tormented geniuses Paul Thomas, it made the list of AVN's 500 Greatest Films in 2005 and at the 1997 AVN Awards, it won awards for Best Director to Thomas, Best Screenplay to writer Raven Touchstone, Best Editing, Best Film, Best Actor to Jamie Gillis in his role of a drunk, heart of gold movie producer (man, I miss him so much) and Best Actress to Shanna McCullough.    Nikki Tyler was the Vivid Girl who headlined this tale of the making of a monster movie in a small town, where they cast locals to find a big star and help McCullough's struggling movie theater.  Tyler and Jenna Jameson were in a long-term relationship way back in the day and watching her in this, you an really get a sense for what Tyler had going on.  So much beauty and wow, she loved to f*ck.  Jon Dough is in this cast--wow, I miss him so much and he deserved a lot better than the way that he ended his life.  I really can't recommend watching this one enough.  It's got amazing players in f*cking hot sex scenes.  Man, it makes me happy.”

 COURTNEY STODDEN A HIT AT COMIC CON – Courtney Stodden was a sensation this year at ComicCon, with plenty of mentions of Vivid’s Courtney Uncovered movie in articles about her appearances. TooFab.com captured the essence of her presence with this article about the “Biggest Moments” at the convention: “Courtney Stodden's Nearly-Nude Cosplay -- Teen bride-turned Vivid sex tape star Courtney Stodden had all eyes on her outside the convention center over the weekend, showing up in pasties, a thong and body paint to promote her relationship with PETA. The Internet star was "dressed" as Captain Marvel for the event, telling toofab she decided on this look because she's a ‘fun blonde,’ adding, ‘We feel like it was the best way to grab attention.’ And she's right!”

 SHORTANDSWEETNYC GIVES VIVID CABARET ANOTHER RAVE REVIEW – Short and Sweet writer Ralph Greco is a big fan of Vivid Cabaret in New York City. He’s just posted a new review of the club as part of THE SEX FILES: Summer Series, ‘Up On The Rooftop’ at Vivid, Part 2. Greco opens his article: “’I overdid it at the beach and got a bad sunburn, so I took a few days off from dancing. When I came back to the club, it was just in time for this great cigar party on the roof deck,’ Kimmie relates. She is one of the gorgeous strippers at Vivid Cabaret NYC and the perfect person to give us a behind-the-scenes (or more precisely an ‘up on high’) view of what’s happening at the upscale cabaret. Continuing my series “Up On The Rooftop” from the upscale gentleman’s cabaret at 61 W 37th street, I wanted to get the skinny from one of the wonderful women who work at Vivid Cabaret NYC to tell us more about the unique rooftop there. As you will recall from my piece from a few weeks ago, I gave you my impression of the outside top floor lounge of the club, but hearing what the rooftop lounge and the club itself is like from a woman like Kimmie is certainly more interesting. \I was drinking champagne with a bunch of celebrities, but I can’t tell you their names, because we respect everyone’s privacy,’ Like everybody else at the club, Kimmie is super friendly. Of course she doesn’t just restrict herself to the night time summer air (or winter, as the rooftop has heaters so it is open year round) of the uppermost area of Vivid’s club. As Kimmie says of one of the cabaret’s most interesting features: ‘I love the pole at Vivid Cabaret. It’s the tallest stripper pole in New York. Right now, I can only make it up half-way, but I’m taking a pole dancing class and by the end of the summer I’ll have licked all my fears and I’ll be up there on top. Then she adds with a wicked smile and wink: ‘I hope all the shortandsweetnyc readers will come see me.’ With its 3 floors, HD TV’sa, 4 stages and that infamous 25 foot pole, Vivid Cabaret NYC is a top destination for those celebs Kimmie will not mention, as well as anybody looking for a good time. In fact, the club is so well respected that new girls come in all the time to dance there, become experts on the poll, party on the roof, just absorb the whole Vivid vibe.”

POSSIBLE MACKENZIE MCKEE SEX TAPE MAKES NEWS – Top pop culture sites such as Fishwrapper were abuzz this week about a sex tape reportedly made by “Teen Mom” star Mackenzie McKee. One headline in Fishwrapper over a story by Sarah Taylor asked, “‘Teen Mom’ Sex Tapes: A Whole Franchise of Their Own?” In her story, Taylor reported, “Teen Mom sex tapes are in high demand, if you can believe it ... and it looks like Mackenzie McKee might be considering following in the footsteps of the original Backdoor Teen Mom, Farrah Abraham -- y'all excited?  Fishwrapper obtained a communication between Vivid.com head honcho, Steve Hirsch, and Mackenzie's rep, and though McKee initially said that she's not interested in peddling her forays into filmed fornication, she just might be meeting with the good folks at Vivid later on this week ... says Hirsch. Hirsch reached out to McKee after her ‘lay off or else’ statement, and had this to say:

Hi Mackenzie: I am in receipt of your letter dated June 29th. Although I am not at liberty to discuss how I received footage of you and your husband, rest assured that I will not be releasing it without your approval. With that being said I think it would make sense for the two of us to discuss. As you may know we released the Farrah Abraham sex tape and by her own admission she made over 1m dollars. I feel confident that you can be every bit as successful as Farrah. Let’s meet and discuss all the ways you can profit from this footage. I understand you will be in Los Angeles in the near future and I hope we can get together to discuss. In the meantime rest assured that your footage is safe with us.

“We reached out to Hirsch, who confirmed that communication with Mackenzie has been opened. To Fishwrapper, Hirsch says, ‘We were successful in reaching Mackenzie and are hoping to meet with her this week.’”
Taylor concluded her story: “We think it'd just make sense for McKee to go ahead and embark on this endeavor. After all ... look what it did for Farrah's star factor bank account.” Later in the week, Taylor wrote that Steven identified the male in McKee’s sex tape as her husband, Josh McKee, adding, “Sources now tell Fishwrapper that Mackenzie's mom notified her daughter -- while she was in Los Angeles, nonetheless -- that Josh picked up and moved out of the family's shared home, because he believes that she's out in Hollywood filming porn as we speak. One thing is certain: it's going to be interesting as hell to see how all of this turns out. And hey ... how hot is Josh McKee, anyway?”  â€¨
The Mackenzie McKee sex tape story was reported by many other sites, including The Ashley's Reality Roundup, Inquisitr.com and Wetpaint.com.

AVN POSTS STORY ABOUT STEVEN HIRSCH ON CELEB SEX TAPES – Mark Kernes of AVN posted a story recently about Vivid chief Steven Hirsch and his views on celebrity sex tapes. The result was a story with the headline: “At Vivid, Celebrities Continue to Be the Name of the Game” The story takes note of the results of a recent poll taken by Vivid and XCritic.com indicating transgender Caitlyn Jenner should do an adult movie. Steven noted, “Making an adult film might be something for (Caitlyn) to seriously consider. Vivid has worked with a number of transgender performers and they had a very satisfying, positive experience. We would certainly be open to talking to Caitlyn about the possibility." Kernes adds, “While Jenner hopefully mulls over the prospect of displaying her newly revealed sexuality for the adult world to see, Vivid is moving forward on other fronts as well, at least two of which involve featured players from the MTV series Teen Mom, which earlier provided one of Vivid's most successful releases, Farrah Superstar: Backdoor Teen Mom, starring Season 1's Farrah Abraham and well-known porn stud James Deen. Vivid is currently in negotiations to release one Season 3 star's existing footage even as it tries to interest another player, this one from Season 2, by dangling a reported $1.5 million in front of her for her on-camera cherry.” Vivid VP Marci Hirsch is quoted as saying, "We hopefully will be meeting with her soon to discuss the situation. There is very little we can say right now." Kernes concludes his story: “But even with McKee's tape in hand, Vivid also began pursuing Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans with an offer similar to that which Abraham had accepted—but according to the website The Ashley, Evans turned them down…’We approached Jenelle Evans as we believe a sex tape with her would be a huge success,’ Marci Hirsch confirmed to AVN. ‘She's currently not interested but we'll see what the future brings.’ But if the past is any indication, what with the decade-long lifespan of High Society magazine spin-off Celebrity Skin, not to mention the still-being-published Celebrity Sleuth and top-rated website Mr. Skin, there's definitely money to be made from mainstream celebrities willing to demonstrate their sexual prowess on camera.”

POLL SAYS CAITLYN SHOULD MAKE A PORNO – A whopping 93% of voters in a recent poll by Xcritic.com and Vivid Entertainment say starring in a porno movie would make Caitlyn Jenner feel more like a woman. The majority of voters in the Caitlyn Jenner survey (58%) said that they would prefer to see Caitlyn in a threesome with another man and another woman, more than double those who wanted to see her star with a male (25.8%). Relatively few (9.7%) want to see her appear with a woman and even fewer want to see her perform solo (6.5%). As for the type of movie, just over half (53%) said that they would prefer to see Caitlyn perform in a straight sex movie rather than in a feature with a storyline. As far as costumes are concerned, lingerie was the far and away the top choice for Caitlyn (77.4%) and the nearest other type outfit was a bikini (9.7%). Says Chris Thorne, editor of XCritic.com: “The eyes of the world have been focused on Caitlyn and her transition into a woman,” “The media has covered her in jeans, casual wear and evening gowns. Our fans are more curious about what she looks like nude and having sex.”

VIVID RELEASES 100% REAL SWINGERS: TENNESSEE – 100% Real Swingers: Tennessee directed by Phil Varone has launched on Vivid.com. The movie demonstrates that Phil has discovered southern hospitality at its raunchiest in Tennessee. The veteran swinger and the former drummer with rock bands Skid Row and Saigon Kick finds that the top attractions for him in Tennessee are not Graceland, the Grand Ole Opry, Dollywood or even the great Smoky Mountains.  He much prefers the swinger resorts where Tennessee couples meet to swap and frolic for the weekend. In 100% Real Swingers: Tennessee he focuses on swinging couples who enjoy a private nudist resort called Pandora’s Forest about 45 minutes outside of Nashville.  While there Varone had full access to the grounds and the members and introduces viewers to all of his eager and amorous new friends who want to share their escapades with the rest of the world. Phil says: “While filming, a couple just enjoying the weekend in Pandora’s Forest wanted to join in the filming fun and make two dreams come true. The husband wanted to watch his wife have sex with another man for the first time; the wife, she wanted to be in an adult movie.  I gave a camera to the husband and he filmed his wife not just with one man, but with as many as she could get her hands on. I’ve been shooting the “100% Real Swingers” series for over three years now and even I was amazed by what I was able to capture.  Pandora’s Forest had one of the best and hottest groups of swingers I’ve ever had the pleasure to meet, film and have fun with.  This movie has set a bar that I don’t know will ever be beat.”

"Teen Mom" sex tapes are in high demand, if you can believe it ... and it looks like Mackenzie McKee might be considering following in the footsteps of the original "Backdoor Teen Mom," Farrah Abraham -- y'all excited?

Fishwrapper obtained a communication between Vivid.com head honcho, Steve Hirsch, and Mackenzie's rep, and though McKee initially said that she's not interested in peddling her forays into filmed fornication, she just might be meeting with the good folks at Vivid later on this week ... says Hirsch.

 MIMI TELLS ALL TO US WEEKLY ABOUT HER SHOWER SCENE – Us Weekly has an exclusive story on Mimi Faust and the infamous shower scene in her Vivid movie, Mimi & Nikko: Scandal in Atlanta. The headline reads: “Love and Hip Hop's Mimi Faust Explains the Secret to Her Sex Tape Shower Rod Scene -- Watch!” Reporter Khalea Underwood writes: “Get a grip! Earlier this week, Love & Hip Hop Atlanta’s Mimi Faust came clean to Us Weekly about her infamous 2014 sex tape with ex-boyfriend Nikko London. Now, the 43-year-old mom wants to explain a scene that had fans talking — and experimenting! In Mimi and Nikko: Scandal in Atlanta, Mimi hangs from a shower rod as she and Nikko, 39, get nasty. ‘’I was just hot and sweaty,’ Mimi dishes to Us Weekly. ‘I was beating myself up the whole time about the tape. I never thought that the shower thing would’ve gone so viral.’ Their dirty deed launched many failed experiments, injuries, and, umm…shower rod sales? Last year, TMZ reported that major stores — including Lowe’s, Target, and Walmart — were selling out of strong rods as fans rushed to ‘recreate the Mimi experience.’ At Home Depot, they literally wrote ‘Mimi Shower Rods’ and stuck that where the rod was…because so many people were asking,’ Mimi confirms. While her acrobatics appeared to be impressive, Mimi wants fans to take heed before hanging. ‘Please do not grab onto that shower rod by yourself and think that it’s going to support your weight. It’s not,’ Mimi warns. ‘Your partner has to be holding you up!’”

 KIM K ON THE COVER OF ROLLING STONE; SHE COMMENTS ON HER SEX TAPE – Kim Kardashian is on the cover of Rolling Stone and in an accompanying interview she talks about her Vivid movie, Kim K Superstar: The Kim Kardashian Sex Tape. In answer to a question about Paris Hilton and whether the fact that both made sex tapes brought them closer, Kim tells the magazine: "I don't think she (Paris) was that happy…We didn't really talk about it. I probably would have thought, 'Oh my gosh, let me give her advice,' but we had no communication. Our friendship had fizzled before that." As for the sex tape distributed by Vivid, Rolling Stone quotes Kim as saying: "We're in major confidentiality, so I can't talk about it.” The magazine asks her if she “still thinks about the fact that a great deal of humanity has seen her in flagrante?” and says Kim replies quietly, “I don't really think about it…I thought about it for a long time. But when I get over something, I get over it.”  The Rolling Stone story – and the reference to the sex tape – was picked up widely by such top gossip sites as HollywoodLife.com, EOline.com, and many others.

 NADIA STYLES TO HOST THE NAUGHTY HOUR ON VIVID RADIO – Adult industry comeback star Nadia Styles is now hosting The Naughty Hour on VividRadio on Wednesdays from 1-2pm PT. Nadia made headlines when she left the adult entertainment industry in 2008 to join an anti-porn organization, staying with the group for just three months. She stayed out of the industry, however, for over six years. She has a different attitude today: “I am not mad at or trying to hurt the industry or anyone involved in it. I respect everyone and the industry. This time around I’m much more grounded and sober-minded than I was back in the day. I’m fully accepting of the business aspect of being an adult film star and I see my return as an opportunity to be better than I was the first time around.” With her Latin background, exotic good looks and a passion for sex, Styles was much in demand as a performer. “When I left the industry,” she says, “it had nothing to do with the business of porn. I was fighting something much more personal and deep within myself. I wasn’t fighting porn. I was fighting against me.” “Nadia’s situation is unique,” says Vivid Radio’s general manager Farrell Hirsch. “For a short time she rebelled against the industry in which she was a star, but later she decided to focus on what was really going on inside herself. What she found was that she missed making adult movies and everything that went along with it, and we’re delighted to have her on the network.”

In an interview with AIPDaily.com this week, Nadia says: “I came into porn because I needed to pay my rent so I answered an ad in the LA Weekly. They were looking for new models to make adult films. I didn’t hesitate to do it. I was game for the experience from the start. Also, expressing my sexuality has always been easy for me. So when it came to making movies it came naturally to me. I was good at it and I enjoyed it, so I kept doing it.” Asked about the new radio show by AIPDaily reporter Christina, Nadia says: “It had been an opportunity that I have been wanting for a while. I got a text from the general manager for Vivid Radio asking ,’Are you ready?’ I knew right then the opportunity had come. It feels real good to finally be a part of Vivid Radio and have my own show.”

100% REAL TEEN SWINGERS: ATLANTA 2 DEBUTS ON VIVID.COM – 100% Real Teen Swingers: Atlanta 2 has launched on vivid.com. It’s the second teen title in Phil Varone’s popular Vivid series featuring only authentic swingers and follows 100% Real Teen Swingers: Atlanta, which was an immediate hit and left fans wanting more. In the new film Phil revisits Atlanta to take viewers to an intimate party with the city’s hottest teen swingers. The beautiful Addie Juniper, an Atlanta model and swinging enthusiast has organized the party. Her “Juniper Generation” group shows off never-before-seen performances by Penny Jean, Dakota, Amai, Pink Berri Kerri, Conor and CJ. These angel-faced teens love to kick up the heat for Phil and his video camera. Many say the nickname “Hotlanta” is a reflection of Atlanta’s reputation as the center of the New South’s adult entertainment scene. Says Phil: “Atlanta teens set a very high bar long ago for their sexual enthusiasm. 100% Real Teen Swingers: Atlanta 2 demonstrates that this new generation of swingers enjoys sex the way it should be – safe, hot and without inhibition.”

Mackenzie McKee has gone to Vivid Entertainment about a sex tape, telling them if they dare release it she will nail their ass harder than Farrah Abraham's ever was. TMZ obtained a letter Mackenzie's lawyer fired off to the porn giant, acknowledging there's a tape but warning it will remain private, or else.

It's unclear how Vivid got hold of the tape, but here's what IS clear ... the only way Vivid can release the video is if she signs off, and her lawyer has given Vivid 10 days to declare its intentions.

As for her sex tape partner, it's unclear who it is, but she's been a married woman for 2 years.

Farrah Abraham has finally reached critical mass when it comes to bizarre, pathetic antics ... and she's enlisted her Twitter followers to help her snag a man who's headed to the ESPYs so she can tag along and fame whore the night away:

And finally here's her video ... which makes things even worse (if that's at all possible):

So "JEAH." If you've ever asked yourself if, indeed, things could get any more pathetic when it comes to Farrah Abraham, your witness to this just answered that question for hopefully ever. This chick is a veritable bottomless pit of asinine lunacy.

<![CDATA[Kim Kardashian Says Rob 'Smokes Weed, Drinks Beer' All Day, Talks Falling Out with Paris Hilton]]> /news/2015-07-01/kim-kardashian-says-rob-smokes-weed-drinks-beer-all-day-talks-falling-out-with-paris-hilton/ /news/2015-07-01/kim-kardashian-says-rob-smokes-weed-drinks-beer-all-day-talks-falling-out-with-paris-hilton/

Kim Kardashian is opening up about some of secrets in her life -- including what reclusive Rob Kardashian does all day and what former BFF Paris Hilton thought about her sex tape.

The reality TV star spills the tea in the new issue of Rolling Stone, addressing everything from the aforementioned topics to living with O.J. Simpson and her first marriage at the age of 20.

When asked about her brother's recent disappearance from the public eye, Kim gets blunt.

"It's not that mysterious, what's happening with Rob," Kardashian tells the mag. "He has gained weight. He feels uncomfortable being on the show, and that's OK. Do I think he smokes weed, drinks beer, hangs out and plays video games with his friends all day long? Yes."

And while she thinks Rob does a lot of drinking these days, she credits her aversion to alcohol helped her a lot when she used to party in Hollywood with Paris Hilton -- especially when it came to avoiding those crotch shots the socialite became famous for.

"I rarely wear underwear, but that never happened to me," she says. "I was never drinking. I think that saved me a lot."

When it comes to her "Kim K. Superstar" sex tape, Kim says her former BFF wasn't thrilled about it ... despite Paris having one of her own.

"I don't think she was that happy," says Kardashian. "We didn't really talk about it. I probably would have thought, 'Oh, my gosh, let me give her advice,' but we had no communication. But our friendship had fizzled before that."

She says that she can't talk about who leaked the tape -- and adds that she doesn't "really think about" it at all anymore.

Other interesting tidbits from the interview:

- O.J. Simpson briefly lived in their house while her father Robert Kardashian was defending him. Kris Jenner thought he was guilty, but Kim says she "took my dad's side." "It's weird, I just try not to think about it, she adds."

- She's always liked the idea of being part of an interracial couple. "When I was in high school, I'd get magazines and see interracial couples and think, 'They are so cute.' I've always been attracted to a certain kind of look."

 MIMI FAUST KEEPS TALKING ABOUT HER SEX TAPE – Mimi Faust loves to talk about the sex tape that Vivid released last year. Her talk has been integrated into the “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” series and has become a running theme on almost every episode. She now says she wasn’t entirely truthful when she originally talked to the media about the circumstances surrounding her famous sex tape, Mimi & Nikko: Scandal in Atlanta.. In an exclusive interview with Us Weekly,  Mimi  tells reporter Khalea Underwood that since Season 3, she’s told friends and fans that the tape was stolen from Nikko’s bag at the airport. She maintained that Vivid Entertainment, the same company that released Kim Kardashian’s recorded romp with Ray J, got hold of the footage and reached out to the couple to make a deal. In order to profit from the tape, Mimi claimed at the time that she and Nikko were required to film extra scenes to meet Vivid’s requirements. No one is quite clear about what the truth is, but we know it’s out there. Mimi also said that Nikko thought that their lovemaking was like art, and that it needed to be documented for the public eye. Despite her reservations, Mimi went along with it. “We had to say something,” Mimi admits, regarding the lies. “I didn’t tell anybody the truth.” The Us story was picked up by many websites, including Inquisitr.com and KPopStarz.com.

 TEAGAN PRESLEY HEADLINES AT VIVID LIVE – Adult actress and feature dancer Teagan Presley is scheduled as the headliner at Vivid Live Gentlemen’s Club in Houston June 25-27. Maxim Magazine calls Teagan one of the 12 top female stars in adult entertainment Nightmoves Magazine says she is a Best Feature Dancer. She’s also been an AVN Award winner, has been a Penthouse Pet of the Month and appeared on the HBO show Entourage as a member of the “Pussy Patrol.” Teagan grew up in Houston and trained in dance and gymnastics. She performed in national ballet, jazz and gymnastics competitions and went on to dance with the prestigious Joffrey Ballet and was accepted into the American Ballet Theater. “I know this is going to sound really weird but I love blues music,” says Teagan. “When I hear blues music I feel so sexy. I imagine a movie where a woman is playing the blues and she’s throwing on a sexy little dress or anything like that. That’s the impression that goes into my head and that does it for me to get in the mood. So, I hope the DJ plays some great blues when I’m at Vivid Live. It will be great to be back in Houston.” Teagan will be signing autographs and posing for snapshots during her breaks at Vivid Live

. SHORTandSWEET GIVES SHOUTOUT TO VIVID CABARET NYC – The Sex Files series on website shortandsweet.com covered Vivid Cabaret NYC this week, calling it “a spot not to be beat,” and adding, “take it on good authority you need to see this one-of-a-kind-location.” Reporter Ralph Greco, Jr. writes that “what Vivid offers its patrons is something quite unique. I thought that about the club previously, but having just seen the outdoor upper area, I now think this even more. A man or lady can buy a cigar, grab a cigarette, take a drink and enjoy the open patio deck of Vivid’s exclusive V.I.P. level (in fact, the grandest of rooms on the V.I.P. floor has access to its own-secluded part-of the outdoor deck area…super cool indeed). As far as the whole of the rooftop, patrons can relax under umbrellas, aided by heaters during the colder nights, across plush couches and chairs, no matter the size of the party. Secluded outdoor areas pepper the upper floors of hotels and nightspots in the city, but what I found so alluring about Vivid’s rooftop is that it is quiet and secluded. Where many clubs are damn well built in and of a rooftop location, Vivid is a fully realized entertainment facility in the floors below; the rooftop is a respite. I was given an exclusive tour by the club’s regional manager, a man I had met previously, Shaun Kevlin, one of the most refined gentlemen you are likely to meet in any club anywhere, not just a strip club. Shaun, like all of the Vivid staff working under him (the staff at Rick’s Cabaret NYC…Vivid’s sister club…as well) simply presents the rooftop as he does the entire club as a spot to be enjoyed fully by whomever enters the club. I have gone on about this before, but Vivid treats their patrons in a way I have never seen people treated, really. From the girl who takes your hat and coat, to the gentlemen seeing you in, to security, to Shaun, this is a top notch operation run perfectly. It is no wonder that the rooftop area is as elegantly designed and kept as everything else in the club.”
