VIVID STUDIO INSIDER FOR MAY 27, 2016
SAM PHILLIPS FEATURED ON ABC NIGHTLINE SEGMENT -- Vivid Radio host Sam Phillips was one of the featured guests this week on a segment of the critically acclaimed ABC television network show Nightline. The segment titled “Redefining What’s Sexy in the Era of Sexting, Snapchat and Porn” focused on a best selling new book by Peggy Orenstein, “Girls and Sex.” Sam was introduced as an adult star and “host of a popular show on Vivid Radio.” In her interview she noted that adult movies are entertainment and “to look at regular porn as an instructional manual for sex is ridiculous. If you want to teach your kid how to drive a car, do you teach him by watching an action movie? To expect to learn about sex by watching a porn is unrealistic, because it is a made up fantasy world.” - Sam Phillps

Remember that you are always in control of your own career and don’t ever let anyone pressure you to go beyond your limits.” Brett also disclosed that she is “very active outside the business. I love the outdoors. I spend a lot of time hiking and riding my horse. Other than that, I’m a major home-body.” Rossi who started runway fashion modeling when she was only 14 years old later was named Miss Howard Stern TV, became a Playboy Cyber Girl, a Twisty’s Treat and Penthouse Pet of the Month.

VIVID AND KYLIE JENNER STAY IN THE NEWS -- Speculation continues about the possibility of a new sex tape starring Kylie Jenner, and Vivid’s possible role. This week Enstarz.com noted, “These days it just seems so hard to keep up with which Kardashian family member has a sex tape or not, but either way they are potentially worth a lot of money…Even though a rep for the Kardashians has denied that Kylie Jenner has a sex tape that she made with her ex-boyfriend Tyga, there's still speculation that the video, regardless of its existence, could be worth a whopping $10 million dollars…And now Kylie is being offered an eight-figure paycheck if she ends up following in the footsteps of her older sister. ‘The tape would be worth a minimum of $10 million. That number could go up based on how hot the sex is!!’ Steven Hirsch, founder/co- chairman of Vivid Entertainment, explained to Hollywood Life. He added, "Whether or not they are still together, we feel that a sex tape with Kylie and Tyga would be in high demand. No one seems to be able to confirm if, in fact, a photo of them from a tape has surfaced. Even with all these uncertainties, we remain interested in acquiring the tape if it exists and if it doesn’t, in making a new one with them." Enstarz reported, “So far Kylie herself has not made any comments about whether or not she did the dirty and recorded it with her ex. She broke up with the rapper earlier this month.”
