Paris Hilton. John Edwards. Rielle Hunter. Tila Tequila. Chelsea Handler. Erin Andrews. Ashley Greene. Kid Rock. Scott Stapp. Kendra Wilkinson. Ke$ha. Snooki. JWoww. Cassie. Ex-Miss California Carrie Prejean. Ex-Miss USA Tara Connor. If you go searching on the internet, you can see any of these people naked, half-naked, covered in semen (allegedly!), or engaging in sex acts, or you can read about the sex acts they’ve performed in great detail. I’ve written about several of these “scandals” myself — oftentimes downright gleefully. Sometimes it’s just fun, as a writer, to get to say a celeb is covered in “masculine essence” or “ambrosia of man.” Other times there’s a delicious schadenfreude when some moralizing twit like Carrie Prejean falls off her high horse.
But I also know I’m guilty of taking it for granted that sex tapes and nude pics are so common that we just assume it’s our God-given right to see them.

An Eva Mendes sex tape? Please let it be true! Mendes’ new flick, “The Other Guys,” is in theaters soon, so the sex tape rumors could just be a PR stunt. (Yeah, we are that jaded.) But in a world where most celebrity sex tapes are of people we would pay money not to see naked (cough John Edwards cough), a video showcasing Miss Mendes’ many charms would be an absolute delight. The tape will allegedly be released tomorrow, so fingers crossed! You know, assuming it’s consensual and all that jazz. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
“You know, that’s a good question, because I haven’t seen hers. Um, I haven’t seen mine either. But I do know I was in it. So, if it is going to do anything, I would hope mine would do better.”
– Danielle Staub of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” explains why her sex tape is better than Kendra Wilkinson‘s [TMZ] Keep reading »
File this news item under Things You Really Don’t Want to See. “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Danielle Staub has a sex tape. TMZ reports someone (Danielle, perhaps?) sold a 75-minute adult video starring Staub engaged in the act of copulation to Hustler Inc. The tape isn’t even new; it’s practically fresh. It was purportedly shot last fall after Staub had already begun appearing on the Bravo show. Staub is 47, the tape will be released June 14, and I’ll probably watch the trailer for it when it hits the internets because I’m masochistic like that. [TMZ] Keep reading »
I can’t really think of anything more mortifying then having your mom discuss your sex tape on national television while you are sitting right next to her. Poor Ray J looks like he wants to crawl inside that couch and disappear while his mom, Sonja Norwood, and Wendy Williams have a convo about his infamous dirty vid with Kim Kardashian. Oh, and his dad and sister Brandy are there too, by the way. It’s like a bad dream. And just when you think the worst of it is over, his mom starts bragging about how he never posed for Playgirl or tried to launch an erotic career like Kim did after the sex tape leaked. Even Brandy let out a groan after that one. Best part? Wendy ends the most uncomfortable moment ever by telling Ray J, “For the record, it was nice watching [your sex tape],” and then high-fiving him. I’m sure I don’t need to point out how many shades of wrong that is. [NY Post] Keep reading »
Sandra Bullock has stayed quiet as a field mouse for weeks. But then a particularly nasty rumor started circulating—that she made some stomach-turning sex tapes with Jesse James—which she just couldn’t let slide. And so this morning, she told People, “There is no sex tape. There never has been one, and there never will be one.” And I gotta say that I believe her, as the alleged details of the vid (after the jump, naturally) are just way too gross. [NY Post]
So where did this rumor come from? From celebrity gossipmonger Ian Halperin, who’s written nine books including Who Killed Kurt Cobain?, Celine Dion: Behind the Fairytale, and Unmasked: The Final Years of Michael Jackson. Halperin’s claims about celebrities have always been salacious. And a few have proven correct—he predicted Michael Jackson would die less than a year before he actually did. But lately, his theories have gotten over-the-top. Should we believe this guy any more? After the jump, a selection of his recent tidbits. Keep reading »
