VIVID NAMES ITS ANNUAL “TEN HOTTEST COUPLES WISH LIST” -- Vivid has announced its seventh annual “Ten Hottest Couples Wish List” of celebrities it would like to add to its wildly popular sex tape series in 2017. Of the ten couples chosen, two are members of British royalty:   Prince William and Kate Middleton (in the #1 spot, as they were in 2012 and 2013) and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle (who join the list for the first time, earning the #5 spot).  Other newcomers to the list are Russell Wilson and Ciara, who married last October, plus Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth.  Miley was on the list in 2014, but with another partner, Patrick Schwarzenegger. In announcing the 2017 list, Vivid chief Steven Hirsch said:  “Kate and William have reappeared at the top of our list for the third time because of their enduring hotness. Their ongoing romance is admired in every corner of our planet. And Prince Harry, with his slightly scandalous reputation, seems to have finally focused on one woman, the American Meghan Markle. Together they’ve quickly ascended in popularity and we think making a movie or a VividTV show starring Harry and Meghan would have tremendous appeal with our younger fans,” Mr. Hirsch added.

 MONIQUE ALEXANDER TO BE INDUCTED INTO THE AVN HALLOF FAME -- Former Vivid Girl Monique Alexander will be inducted into The AVN Hall of Fame, an honor that will be bestowed in Las Vegas on January 21 at the AVN Awards Show. In announcing the induction, AVN said: “One of the most sought-after performers of her generation, Monique Alexander is a former Vivid Girl who started her career in adult in 2001. A stripper in her hometown of Sacramento at age 18, Monique soon began shooting for men’s magazines and started her porn career only doing girl/girl scenes. But that didn’t prevent the gorgeous blonde from being in high demand as she signed an exclusive contract with Sin City in 2001. In January 2002, Monique was a Trophy Girl at the AVN Awards ceremony in Las Vegas. And in late 2004 she became a Vivid Girl, performing in the first boy/girl scene of her career with Rocco Siffredi as part of her Vivid contract. That electric coupling appears in the 2005 movie Lexie & Monique Love Rocco. She later won the AVN's 2009 Best Couples Sex Scene award for her boy/girl pairing with Mr. Marcus in the Vivid feature Cry Wolf. Her accolades also include Best All-Girl Sex Scene and Best Group Sex Scene-Film from the 2008 AVN Awards. To date she has performed in more than 420 adult films. Monique over the years has enjoyed numerous mainstream crossover opportunities, such as making cameo appearances as a porn star on the TV show Entourage and in the 2009 movie Crank: High Voltage; and acting in B-movies on HBO and Cinemax. In addition, Alexander has appeared on Conan O'Brien’s show and Oprah; had a stint as a sports reporter on the National Lampoon Radio comedy show; hosted her own Vivid Radio show; and also represented the adult industry in a debate during Sex Week at Yale University.”  The AVN Awards Show is the culmination of the AVN Expo, a series of events produced by AVN Media Network at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas, beginning with Internext, followed by the AVN Novelty Expo, and the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo, and capped off by the AVN Awards Show.
