You just know it’s going to be so much fun to warm him up.”

 VIVID IN THE NEWS IN EUROPE -- VividCeleb and Steven Hirsch are in the news in Europe these days. Mainstream French website Bluewin wrote that Vivid “has decided to extend its empire to France” by distributing celebrity sex tapes and broadcasting them on European VividTV channels. The website quoted Steven as saying, "France is a wonderful country whose capital is known to be the city of love, which is a good starting point for us.  We are delighted with the opportunities in France for our celebrity sex tapes, since we are already aware of their popularity through their success on VividTV. This makes France a very important market for our company." Bluewin noted that Vivid always makes sure it has the legal right to distribute its sex tapes. It quoted Steven as saying, “We never market videos without the consent of the parties involved. We are talking with some celebrities (in Europe) for the simple reason that they want to make a sex-tape with us. In fact, they are comfortable with the process because making a tape is their idea from the start.”  He told Bluewin that in some cases the company is offered videos that have already been made. “ We then contact the celebrities involved to obtain their agreement for distribution. With Kim Kardashian and Ray J, as well as with Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee, a third party brought us the video.  We contacted the celebrities and explained the financial benefits of working with our distribution network, as opposed to letting the video be distributed on the web via a site which people can view free of charge.” Steven also told Bluewin that “some celebrities may have created the tapes of their frolics for their personal use, but a copy of the video somehow was obtained without their permission. These celebrities may not be comfortable with the situation, but we try to help them realize how they can still take advantage of it financially."

Noting that Kim’s fame increased after Vivid distributed her sex tape, Bluewin asked Steven if Vivid “will soon be distributing sex tapes of French stars?”  His reply: "We believe that there are celebrities in France who will be able to see the benefit that a sex-tape distributed and marketed by Vivid can bring them.” Bluewin concluded its story:“Who will be the first French celebrity with a sex-tape distributed by Vivid? The answer will come soon, says the founder of Vivid Entertainment.”

Shameless Ray J turns the air blue as he boasted about  the Kim Kardashian sex tape within SECONDS of arriving on Celebrity Big Brother (UK).”   And a story on BET.com began:  “Kim Kardashian has moved on from her sex tape days with ex Ray J, but it doesn't seem like the newly married Love & Hip-Hop: Hollywood star has done the same. According to Us Magazine, Ray J, who up until recently was a contestant on Britain's Celebrity Big Brother, boasted about the tape during an episode of the show and even urged folks to go out and buy it to "put some money" in his pocket.   There was also more recent coverage  of the Ray J/Kim K controversy on XNXX.com.
