Without a doubt Farrah Abraham lives a life led by delusion! Like times a million.
The Teen Mom star claimed to have made a sex tape for her own viewing pleasure, which allegedly got leaked
by Farrah to Vivid Entertainment. In turn Vivid reportedly dangled a seven-figure deal in front of Farrah's nose to sell her pleasure romp. And what's a fameseeking girl on a now defunct reality show to do but take it?!
Unfortunately Farrah's boasting about her massive payout may be just one of her many delusions. Fox News did a little investigation into the reality (see what I did there?!) of celebrity sex tapes and found out it's not all royalty checks and bigtime payouts!

In fact, according to their sources Farrah only netted about 1/100th of the alleged $1 million, which means she sold her ladyparts for for about $10,000. YES – TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS – or less than the cost of a new pair of boobs! No wonder Farrah needed 'fans' to buy her home decor items on her Amazon Wish List!
Kevin Blatt, who has brokered sex tape deals for many a down on their luck star looking for some publicity, says that's pretty much industry standard! “It is what they offer every celebrity, not a million dollars,” he reveals.
“In reality she (Abraham) got $10,000 upfront and 30 percent of sales, minus the cost of production," a source disclosed. “The entire celebrity sex video genre is a lot of unsubstantiated marketing with very little truth behind it…. It’s all publicity. It’s all hype.” No…
According to Blatt, the last stars to truly make bank on their sex tape deals were the original queens of the on-screen dirty deeds: Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton! “Paris and Kim made millions, but that’s because it was a different time,” he explained. “People were buying DVDs then.“
Steve Hirsch, Vivid's intrepid president, wouldn't go into details but admitted insomuch that the company knows how to work the fauxlebs looking to sell their tapes. "I think after doing these deals for so many years I know how to properly structure them," Steve shared. "We aim for fair deals for all involved and if they weren't profitable, we wouldn't be in business for almost 30 years. I'm happy with our track record."
Despite the fact that Farrah's romp was one of Vivid's highest selling ventures, she's still not likely raking in the dough from it!
Former sex tape star Jasmine Waltz who has dated industry bigwigs like Ryan Seacrest explains how her sex tape deal was brokered. “Vivid told me they would give $125,000 and 25 percent of the back end, all the sales that are made. Basically, you’ll never see the back end after advertisement. You won’t get the money. It’s a very untrustworthy business." And she reveals that a lot of girls get burned "really, really bad."
Many ladies are hoping to parlay their sexytime adventures into other avenues. For instance Farrah has been racking up endorsement deals for all kinds of things from tell-all books to vibrators modeled on her own erotic zones. And that's apparently the best these sex tape stars can hope for!
Hoping to follow in Farrah's footsteps is Kim K 'lookalike'
if you forgot your contacts, Myla Sinanaji. She reportedly dated Kim's ex Kris Humphries and when her pregnancy schemes fell through she went ahead and made a sex tape thinking it would boost her career.
One sex tape siren who got burned cautions against thinking they'll get a Kimmie Kakes career out of the deal. "You’re not going to be famous, or be a movie star," says Montana Fishbourne whose own sex tape was distributed in 2010.
Still Myla doesn't care. Her video was released in September and she couldn't be happier! “It’s not a big deal to me. Everybody does it," she insists. "I profited on my tape."
Myla believes if other celeb wannabes had the chance, they'd hop into the sack as well! "I feel like if other people were given the opportunity to make a tape for that amount of money they wouldn’t be so quick to judge. We’re going into 2014. Schools are handing out condoms now.” Umm… OK – insightful words there. Definitely some advice I don't think I'll be taking, but thanks!
Well, perhaps sex tapes will turn out to be the new reality TV. Or not. My eyes; my fragile, contact-occupied eyes.
