VIVID STUDIO INSIDER FOR MARCH 23, 2015
VIVID CELEB TAPE MAY CREATE ‘AWKWARD’ MOMENT FOR MIMI FAUST – Website KDramaStars.com says Mimi Faust’s Mimi & Nikko: Scandal in Atlanta sex tape for Vivid Celeb may create a “crazy” season for the VH1 reality show Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. Says KDramaStars: “The new season of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta promises to be a crazy ride, headlined by Mimi Faust who will share screen time with Nikko Smith's wife Margo Simms. It would be awkward, to say the least, in light of the sex tape by Nikko Smith and Mimi Faust which both sold to Vivid Entertainment.” KDramaStars also reports Mimi and Nikko are no longer a couple: “In an earlier interview with Hollywood Life, Mimi Faust said that she's never going to rekindle a romance with Nikko Smith after finding out that he's actually married. ‘It definitely was a deal breaker…I was very honest about every little thing because it was important if he was going to enter into a situation with me. For two years and even with everything that happened with the sex tape for him to not tell me [he was married] was an absolute deal breaker.’"
VIVID’S SAVANNA SAMSON (AKA NATALIE OLIVEROS) TO HOST WINE & TRAVEL SHOW – The independent Dutch TV production company Appelbaum has signed Natalie Oliveros – best known as Vivid adult movie star Savanna Samson -- to host “The Lady in Red,” an international travel series about wine and travel. Natalie has studied wine since 1999 and currently co-owns the La Fiorita vineyard in Montalcino, Italy with all star wine maker Roberto Cipresso. Appelbaum and Natalie are shooting a pilot in Italy this week. Future episodes of “The Lady in Red” will follow Natalie as she travels the world and explores the ins and outs of some of the greatest wine areas. Says Natalie: “When Appelbaum reached out to me, asking if I would like to host an international wine show, I was thrilled by the idea. Wine is big passion of mine and there are so many great stories to tell.” Natalie recalls that as a girl she helped her family make wine in their basement. In 2005 she asked Italian winemaker and consultant Cipresso to help find a blend of grapes local to Tuscany that would produce her ideal flavor. Together they produced a red wine that she named Sogno Uno, meaning Dream One. World renowned wine critic Robert Parker gave Sogno Uno a rating of 90 to 91 out of 100, and described it as "awfully good". Since 2011 Natalie Oliveros has been a partner and owner of Cipresso's La Fiorita in Montalcino, producing a high end Brunello.
FARRAH’S VIVID CELEB TAPE AN ‘OMG’ EVENT – Pop culture website Wetpaint.com posted a story recently on Farrah Abraham’s “OMG moments” and featured prominently
among them are her Vivid Celeb sex tapes. Says Wetpaint.com: “Teen Mom star and world-famous chanteuse Farrah Abraham has been super busy since Teen Mom's fourth season wrapped up in 2012, and the time has come to celebrate her achievements. Farrah's been up to so much since the show ended, and — much like a moth morphing into a butterfly — she's made the flawless transition from a reality mom to a total momtrepreneur. She's a Porn Star — Kinda: Following her stint on Teen Mom, Farrah decided she should probably make a sex tape...with a porn star. Yep, Farrah convinced James Deen to get frisky with her on film, and then sold the video to Vivid Entertainment for the tune of seven figures, and thus Farrah Superstar: Backdoor Teen Mom was born. Also, it should be noted that Farrah definitely doesn't consider herself a porn star. She's just a young girl exploring her sexuality.” A recent story on website Moviepilot.com also mentioned Farrah, in an article about crossover stars. The story highlighted James Deen and discussed his appearance with Farrah in her Vivid Celeb movies.
