She's worth 28 million.

And that lighting is creepy.

I think the big deal is that she's rich/famous, and you'll never get to have sex with her.

It's the usual patriarchal double standard, combined with the absurdity of our twisted attempt at puritanical society.
If a girl has sex, she's a slut (which word I'd love to see removed from the language).
Rich people are supposed to be better than poor people (otherwise why would they be rich?).
The media thrives on scandal, especially the "elite" falling from grace in whatever fashion.

Therefor, a girl having sex on tape is a scandal, a rich girl having sex on tape is a bigger scandal because the rich girl is acting like a normal girl. And because she's having sex, she's a slut, and because she's a slut, she's no better than anyone else, only she has money etc etc.

Basically, I'm wondering what kind of publicity ploy this was. Sex tapes don't just randomly appear, unless you are dumb. Is this the tape belonging to the (bitter) ex attempting to tarnish her, or was the tape hers and it was released by her (or some member of her PR staff) in order to get more of a buzz about her upcoming lame ass reality show and generate speculation on if she was "doing the nasty" with any of the small own folks?

Then again, as one of the 5 people in the US who haven't seen the tape, I'm interested only because I'm a guy (and therefor like pr0n), only the reviews say it's not very good pr0n, in which case maybe I'm better off surfing the net for better stuff.

I am guessing it was planted to get her some buzz for her reality show. And it worked; the show pulled huge numbers for its debut.

Does someone have a pointer to the file? I want to watch it, but I don't want to spend a lot of time trying to find the vid online.

I have the WMV on my site on sidehack - I'll give you the URL if you want it.

I'm not posting it because I can see it getting out and swamping Sidehack.
