It’s an exciting day in the app world. According to TMZ, Sydney Leathers has signed a six figure endorsement deal to be the new face of iHookup, a mobile app for “casual dating based on sexual chemistry.” (I think that might be code for NSA sex?) Her duties will include having an active profile and regularly interacting with users. It’s not clear what kind of interactions exactly. Sexting, I suppose. “It’s all about that instant gratification and hooking up with the right person at the right time. Sydney seems to have that nailed down!” said a rep for the company. Well, I think this might be her best business move yet. It sounds like she’ll be leveraging her skills and talents. [TMZ] Keep reading »
Can you believe it? Sydney Leathers — you remember her, right? — in our LA office! Talking about sexting with Anthony Weiner! Who woulda thunk? Okay, so the political junkie and dick pic recipient has been on a bit of a media bender, so maybe we shouldn’t feel too special. But still! Sydney was kind enough to share her thoughts on everything from conservatives’ sex lives, Weiner’s sexting skills, the legitimacy of her made-for-porn name, whether she would forgive her husband for cheating, and how her family has reacted to her newfound infamy. Check out what Sydney has to say in the video above!
“If I really wanted fame or attention, I probably wouldn’t have tried to remain anonymous (for as long as I did). I probably would’ve came out sooner with everything. And to be honest, I wouldn’t have given away the exclusive photos and the transcripts of our conversations for free to Nik Richie if I was looking to gain from it. … Once my identity was leaked, I felt like I had no choice. It was like, “You might as well speak for yourself, otherwise everyone else is going to try.” … I’m not saying I had no choice to do the photo shoot, but once my face was out there, it was like, You might as well capitalize on it while you can. Because what am I going to do? Hide in a cave and pretend I don’t exist for the rest of my life? … I don’t feel like I exploited [anything] and I don’t feel like I’m being exploited either.”
– I fail to be titillated by anything Sydney Leathers does at this point. Between the masturbation porn, the visit to the Howard Stern show, the bikini photo shoot, and that service piece she wrote for xoJane about how to seduce a politician, I’m burnt out on ol’ Syd. (But in case you’re wondering, “Leathers” is a German last name. Of course it is.) [Complex]
Sydney Leathers, former paramour of distinguished NYC mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner, shall not go softly into the night! No, no, between ratting out Weiner for his second sexting scandal and taking meetings with Vivid porn execs, Leathers also found time to conduct a little bikini photoshoot on the beach in Santa Monica. I dig her retro swimsuit and extensive array of tattoos. I didn’t realize Weiner had such edgy taste. Anyway, the clock is ticking down on Sydney’s 15 minutes, so click through for more photos… [Photos: INFphoto.com]
New York Daily News: There is no one you are sexting now?
Anthony Weiner: You can quibble about beginnings, middles and ends but what we’re talking about is over a year ago.
That’s … not a “no.” But NYC mayoral candidate/sexting aficianado Anthony Weiner is a slippery one, so go figure that he wouldn’t answer this question. After the jump, here’s what Carlos Danger had to say about whether any more ladies will come out of the woodwork with additional pictures of his dick (see the others — NSFW! — here). Oh, excuse me, these ladies were his “friends.” Keep reading »
