A new report from Fox411 says that Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham made only $10,000 for having squirting anal with James Deen in Backdoor Teen Mom, not the “nearly $1 million” claimed by Vivid and reported by TMZ. And if you can’t trust the porn industry to tell the truth about numbers, who can you?
One source close to the situation tells FOX411 the former “Teen Mom” star only got about 1/100 of that amount.
That’s right: $10,000, not $1 million.
I like how they needed an entire separate paragraph to explain their own math.
And Kevin Blatt, who has brokered several celebrity sex tapes himself, said Tami Erin, who once portrayed “Pippi Longstockings,” got the same offer.
“Tami Erin was offered $10K up front which is standard for Vivid,” Blatt told FOX411. “It is what they offer every celebrity, not a million dollars.”
Another adult entertainment industry insider backed up Blatt’s claims.
“In reality she (Abraham) got $10,000 upfront and 30 percent of sales, minus the cost of production,” the source said. “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.” [Fox411]
I feel compelled to call at least partial bullsh*t on this story. I mean yeah, if Vivid said almost a million, she probably got less than that. But the idea that a girl from a current MTV reality show who squirts and does anal isn’t going to get more than a 39-year-old no one remembers from a movie that came out in the 80s is ridiculous. Farrah is a world-class moron, but unless Elmer Fudd negotiated this deal, I have to think she made more than $10K. But hey, if you can’t trust the gossip division of Fox News, who can you?
