VIVID STUDIO INSIDER FOR DECEMBER 22, 2014
VIVID OFFERS MAMA JUNE A FILM DEAL – Vivid chief Steven Hirsch wrote to ‘Honey Boo Boo” star Mama June with an offer to make a movie with her hillbilly lover Sugar Bear. TMZ broke the story of Steven’s offer, and the news immediately went viral, with hundreds of sites picking up on the tale. TMZ wrote: “Mama June may have bugs in her feet, but she's still sexy enough to pull a $1 million paycheck if she gets down in the mud with Sugar Bear in an epic, redneck sex tape.
Vivid Entertainment honcho Steve Hirsch has reached out to MJ and SB, offering them up to $1 MIL and maybe even more if they bang on camera for Vivid's BBW site. Hirsch says to June, ‘We believe you would fit into that category.’ And Vivid will let June call the shots ... assuming Sugar Bear can perform multiples. We tossed around some titles, ‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo's Mom,’ ‘Slap the Thigh, Ride the Wave,’ ‘It Must Be Jelly 'Cause She Ate All the Jam’ and our favorite, "What's Eating Mama June?’” Vivid has not yet had a formal answer from Mama June, but TMZ reported that she “will not copulate for cash on camera ... no matter how much money is thrown at her. The ‘Honey Boo Boo’ matriarch says she would never ever consider Vivid Entertainment's offer for June and Sugar Bear to do the dirty and possibly make north of $1 million.” TMZ quoted Mama June as saying, "It ain't happening, not even for a zillion dollars."
VIVID CABARET WINDOW IS BIG APPLE STAR – It takes a lot for a window in a New York City nightclub to make international news, but that’s just what happened with the peek-a-boo window at Vivid Cabaret in Manhattan. The New York Post first reported on the window with a Page Six feature, “Strip Club Putting on Live Xmas Show.” The story began: “Baz Luhrmann may have dazzled Madison Avenue with his holiday window display for Barneys New York, but a few blocks from Macy’s — which invented the holiday window tradition in the 1870s — gentlemen’s club Vivid Cabaret is launching its own window for the season. Rather than any old department-store Santa, live dancers appear behind the glass to jingle their bells on West 37th Street.
A scantily clad, brunette Miss Santa gyrates in the club’s window with four ‘lovely helpers’ on Wednesday. As compared to the nearby retail giant’s, Vivid’s regional manager Shaun Kevlin admitted, ‘It’s a small window, but it will certainly warm many hearts.’” The story was picked up by all of the New York City television stations and other media. . The headline on the Pix 11 report was, “Move Over Macy’s, Strip Club Reveals Their Own Holiday Window.”
TMZ REPORTS ON POSSIBLE VIVID OFFER TO WIZ KHALIFA -- A TMZ headline this week was bold: “Wiz Khalifa -- Banging Playboy Chick Turns Into Six Figure Sex Tape Offer.” The exclusive TMZ staff story said: “Wiz Khalifa's got a lot of problems -- about six figures worth -- the Playboy model he banged last week is close to cashing in big time on a sex tape ... but there's just one hang up. Our porn sources tell us vixen Carla Howe is very close to making a deal with Steve Hirsch at Vivid Entertainment. Carla's totally down to sell the footage for the right price. Problem is ... if Wiz doesn't sign off ... Vivid can't release the porno. We're told Carla's footage shows Wiz looking right into her lens, and shooting with his own phone camera. It's possible, we guess, he doesn't remember -- dude smokes kush like a chimney. But it makes no diff -- sources close to Wiz tell us he's not interested in the sex tape going public. Then again ... everyone has their price, and Hirsch has a great track record with sex tapes ... said Kim Kardashian, Ray J, Farrah Abraham, Mimi and Nikko.”
