Mama June could cash in big–if she’s both willing and able.
Vivid Video porn kingpin Steve Hirsch has suggested that the Honey Boo Boo star could pocket at least a million dollars if she agreed to get down and dirty with former HBB co-star Sugar Bear, and film the results.
The former reality actress, whose real name is June Shannon, would be a perfect fit for Vivid’s BBW (or “Big Beautiful Woman”) line, says Hirsch, as he urges MJ to consider the success of other reality stars’ sex tapes.
TMZ acquired a copy of Hirsch’s letter to June, which you can read here. One tasty excerpt (grammatical mistakes corrected) is this:
One of the new genres that has become popular on VividTV and Vivid.com is BBW, which stands for Big, Beautiful Women. We believe you would fit into that category. [Really. -ed] You and Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson should seriously consider making a movie with Vivid that could earn you up to $1 million–or more. We would make the experience an enjoyable one for both of you and give you as much creative input as you would like.
Note that Hirsch, in classic sheister producer form, doesn’t straight-up offer a million dollars: he simply suggests the possibility of its existence, as though it’s a cloud that looks like a dog. And one does wonder what an “enjoyable” experience on-set would be like. Mango smoothies? A kickin’ sound system? Cabana boys?
For her part, M-Jun says there’s not going to be any monkey business. In a recent Facebook post, she comes out against the idea as strongly as capital letters can:
JUST FYI THERE IS NO SEX TAPE COME OUT ABOUT ME AND SUGARBEAR NEVER I HAVE MORE RESPECT FOR MYSELF AND MY KIDS AND MY FAMILY SO WHO EVER MADE THAT LIE UP AND SOLD IT TO TMZ SORRY IT AINT HAPPENING NOT EVEN FOR A ZILLION DOLLARS….
Sounds like all Hirsch needs to do is come up with a zillion and one dollars–and hope that the public’s appetite for a Mama June sex tape is equivalent to a zillion and two.
What about you? Are you interested? Would you watch a Mama June sex tape if someone paid you a zillion dollars?
