The buzz about Farrah Abraham's sex tape is deafening. And now Vivid Entertainment, which scored the right to distribute the video, is bringing all the action to a television near you.
Well, sort of. It depends on whether your particular LCD is equipped with premium channels of the adult variety:
The video will air Monday on the adult studio's recently launched VividTV, which the company says is available to 52 million viewers, Vivid announced today. (The channel also is available on DirecTV).
It will also be available on VividTV OnDemand, according to the company.
The news was dropped today after Vivid announced Monday that it would release the 70-minute tape via internet streaming May 6 and via DVD May 14.
The action features male porn superstar James Deen. Although Abraham got dirty with Deen (the title appears to have been hastily changed from Farrah Superstar: Backdoor Teen Mom to Farrah “Teen Mom” Superstar for reasons unknown) she claimed to have wanted to keep it confidential.
Sure. Lights, camera, action with an A-list male performer, but let's keep it hush-hush. And the production apparently was shopped around to the highest bidder. Vivid is said to have paid a price in the high six figures for the video.
On Monday the tape will find a home among Sexy Asian Delights, After School Treats and the classic Deep Holes Black Poles on VividTV.
Sounds like hours of fun. Enjoy.
[Added at 2:50 p.m.]: A Vivid spokeswoman explained to us that the Backdoor title would remain for the streamed and DVD versions of the video while Farrah “Teen Mom” Superstar was made for TV, so to speak.
