TMZ revealed earlier today that Teen Mom OG stars Amber Portwood and Matt Baier recently met with Steven Hirsch, head honcho for adult film giant Vivid Entertainment. The site is careful to never clearly say what Amber, Matt, and Steve were meeting about, only that “ya don’t have to be a rocket scientist to know why Hirsch wanted this meeting.”
That is correct — you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to know why. Amber Portwood is a client of GR Media, which has an extensive track record of setting up meetings between their clients and Steven Hirsch before punching up TMZ on their speed dial for a quick ‘n’ juicy story that gets Vivid Entertainment and their clients in the headlines. And it’s not just a proven track record with celebrities, it’s a proven track record with multiple Teen Mom and 16 & Pregnant stars — including Farrah Abraham (who later fired GR Media and Gina Rodriguez in an acrimonious spit) and Mackenzie McKee.
Mackenzie would later express regret over agreeing to her “sex tape” story, and she has said that there never was one to begin with. 16 & Pregnant star Lindsey Harrison Nicholson never actually met with Steven Hirsch, but instead had a story about her in OK! Magazine detailing her porn aspirations and calling her “Farrah 2.0.” Lindsey later laughed off the story.
Also part of the GR Media formula is having plastic surgery and being very public about it, which Amber Portwood has already done. Previous GR Media plastic surgery patients include Farrah Abraham, Kail Lowry, Briana DeJesus, and Lindsey Nicholson — just click the links for their headline-grabbing surgical procedures. (It should be noted that Dr. Miami is also a GR Media client.) Normally, GR Media’s female clients would then pose for an “impromptu” bikini beach photoshoot showing off their new assets, but I’m guessing this is something Amber did not want to do? (Briana DeJesus was even willing to go topless for her shoot! Meanwhile, Mackenzie McKee kept hers PG-13.)
Another less common tactic used by GR Media is to have their stars (Tan Mom, Honey Boo Boo, Sydney Leathers, Mackenzie McKee) record a song with their client Adam Barta. As much as Matt and Amber love to talk about how much music means to them, I’m guessing there is a good chance we will get a Mamber tune before the year is out — if they are still together.
In summary, for those of you (i.e. Matt Baier) eagerly awaiting an Amber Portwood and Matt Baier p0rn video, do not get your hopes up because not only is it not going to happen, but I don’t think it was ever even seriously discussed. That doesn’t mean Farrah Abraham won’t have LOTS of ammunition at the next Teen Mom OG Reunion though! (I think we can officially add Farrah mentioning “selling your vagina” to the TMOG Reunion Drinking Game.)
The lack of a Mamber p0rn flick can’t stop us from having a little fun coming up with potential titles though! Here are a few I thought of off the top of my head:

UPDATE – Amber spoke with The Dirty’s Nik Richie (another GR Media client, and one of the most infamous purveyors of online bullying and hate in the history of the internet) about the Vivid meeting and she did a great job of selling the headlines by leaving the possibility of an adult film open. “Even if I did do something with Vivid it wouldn’t be like other celebrity videos,” Amber says, seemingly trying to stay on the high road in comparison to her Teen Mom OG nemesis Farrah Abraham. “I was the first to be asked years ago and turned it down,” she makes sure to point out.
Continuing to ride her relatively high horse (as compared to Farrah’s miniature Starburst), Amber goes on to say that if she did do the Matt Mambo on film, it would be for the betterment of humanity. “If I ever did anything like that I would just say yeah I did it and now I have halfway houses opening up or I would use it (the money) for charity.”
Amber does make it clear that, “as of now, ‘there’s no sex tape.'”
* After our update, Nik Richie reached out to us to clarify a couple of things. First off, he wanted it clear that he fired Gina Rodriguez and is no longer a client of GR Media. Secondly, he says that he had the Amber, Matt, and Vivid story before TMZ and that Gina “tried to get ahead of it.” Strangely, he says that he spoke with Amber and she “claimed Gina is not her manager.”
UPDATE – Us Weekly reports that Vivid’s offer to Amber for the film is “$85,000 in an advance and 35 percent of the net revenues.” The tabloid does not mention if Matt was offered anything. Also not mentioned is whether or not Amber and/or MAtt received compensation just for meeting with Hirsch.
