Vivid founder and co-chairman Steven Hirsch sent a letter containing the offer to Suleman's attorney. No information was available on the amount being offered to Suleman.
Steven Hirsch: "She's clearly not interested in a performing role with us and so we thought we'd take another approach and we're hoping that this one works as we think everyone will enjoy meeting her in Vegas."
Suleman needs to come up with a $450,000 payment by December 31, 2010 in order to remain in her house.
Ashton Kutcher blasted Vivid Entertainment for using his name to promote its Brittney Jones sex tape. Jones claims to have been the actor's mistress.
Kutcher's lawyers sent Vivid co-chairman Steven Hirsch a letter saying they were angered by a portion of Vivid's press release that says "Ashton's fans will undoubtedly enjoy seeing what the star himself may have experienced."
Kutcher's lawyers claim Vivid is infringing on the actor's "marketable celebrity identity value."
Steven Hirsch: "We received the letter late [Friday] afternoon and I immediately forwarded it to my attorney. We will respond accordingly."
AIM Healthcare announced that all performers (two generations of partners of the HIV+ patient) tested negative for HIV on two occasions using multiple testing methods. AIM has established that Patient Zero acquired the virus through private, personal activity and there was no transmission of the HIV virus from Patient Zero to any performers.
This event affirms the efficacy of AIM Healthcare Foundation's testing protocols, as voluntarily implemented by the adult entertainment industry. It is regrettable but inevitable that people continue to acquire the HIV virus in their personal life. The protocols and other industry practices have resulted in only one incident of HIV transmission on set in more than a decade. That is a remarkable record. AIM Healthcare Foundation is proud of its contribution to the health and well-being of the adult industry and wider community.
In related news... Vivid Entertainment announced that it will resume production on Monday, November 8, 2010, after being shut down for almost a month due to health safety concerns. Vivid suspended production immediately (and voluntarily) on October 12 after AIM announced the existence of a Patient Zero.
Steven Hirsch (Vivid founder/co-chairman): "We made the decision to halt production as the health and well-being of our performers is of utmost importance to us. We can now confirm that all performers who were on the quarantine list as a result of being exposed to the HIV positive performer have gone through two rounds of testing and the results are negative. We believe that AIM acted professionally and thoroughly and proved that their system works. We will, of course, continue to require recent test results for all performers in our movies and will continue to take all necessary precautions to assure their health and safety."
Digital Playground resumed production last week.
Guyleen Rose (director of marketing and public relations for Digital Playground): "We retested all of our performers and determined they were all OK."
Hustler Video is also back in production.
Michael Klein (LFP President): "We have resumed production at our studios, continuing to make sure every precaution is taken to protect everyone involved with the filming."
Kick Ass Pictures resumed production on Thursday.
Mark Kulkis (founder of Kick Ass Pictures): "I'm glad that the AIM system worked exactly the way it was supposed to. In this case, it looks like somebody contracted HIV outside the business, and because of the testing, they were not allowed to bring it inside the business, and I think it's proof that the testing works just fine."
Wicked Pictures productions are now back on schedule as well.
Steve Orenstein (Wicked Pictures President): "Thanks to the efforts of AIM and how they handled this situation, we have now resumed our shooting schedule. Of course, continuing to use condoms like we have been for the last 11 years."
Nadya "Octomom" Suleman has received two new cash offers from the adult industry. Clips4Sale has offered her $20,000 to wash her hair and to consent to some on-camera tickle torture, while Vivid Entertainment has offered her a job as a film production assistant for $1,000 a day.
Clips4Sale wants the Octomom to perform in two 30-minute segments of non-nude footage and asks for the exclusive rights to the footage.
Vivid has been beggingwanting the Octomom to work with them for over a year-and-a-half. The Octomom would receive on-the-job training and not have to perform sex or be nude.
Mark Kulkis (Kick Ass Pictures President): "I'm still playing it by ear right now. For next week I haven't decided because I don't know what's going on yet. We're taking a wait and see approach for the next few days because we have a bit of time before our next shoot dates."
Jennaration X Studios wrapped its most recent title and canceled two scenes scheduled for later on in the week. Jenna Haze, owner of Jennaration X Studios, has suspended production for 30 days.
Samantha Lewis (Digital Playground CEO): "I want to take the time to talk to all my performers before I make any big announcement, but we are canceling all of our shoots for the foreseeable future."
Hustler Video is wrapping production on its current project and will suspend all production until it receives more information.
Rob Smith (Hustler Video Director of Operations): "While we have suspended all future production plans in the short term, we will conclude our current shoot which will wrap within the week. We have no plans to begin additional production until we get a better overview of the current situation."
Steven Hirsch (Vivid Entertainment founder/co-chairman): "When Vivid was first made aware that a performer had tested positive for HIV we immediately suspended production. We did this as a precaution and will continue to monitor the situation. AIM Healthcare acted appropriately to quarantine all adult talent who may have been exposed. We will wait for all of the facts to emerge before we resume production."
Even though Wicked Pictures is a condoms-only company, they are following suit as well.
Wicked Pictures issued this statement:
Even though Wicked is condoms-mandatory, we have postponed our upcoming productions to give AIM a chance to create a comprehensive quarantine list. Thanks to the continued efforts of AIM the entire industry was all made aware of this possible threat on the same day.
The AIDS Healthcare Foundation has used this situation to demand that there be mandatory condom requirement for porn produced in California.
Michael Weinstein (AHF President): "That a performer tested positive for HIV [yester]day—and that more may be infected—was totally preventable. It is also living proof that testing is not adequate protection against HIV/AIDS and other sexually-transmitted diseases among porn performers. How many more people have to be infected with HIV before Los Angeles County steps in to do its job and protect performers' and the public’s health and AIM stops being a 'fig leaf' for the industry?"
After stating that they would fight the release of their sex tape, Playboy Playmate Karissa Shannon and her boyfriend, Smallville alum Sam Jones III, have decided to let Vivid Entertain- ment release it (as long as they get a cut of the profits).
Steven Hirsch (Vivid co-chairman): "This is the absolutely the most extreme celebrity sex tape ever brought to us and we're excited to have it. Even though Karissa and Sam made this for their own enjoyment, it's shot extremely well and is as provocative as it is sexual. Never has a girl this beautiful been this nasty... she's completely uninhibited with Sam."
Titled Karissa Shannon Superstar, the DVD hits Vivid.com on September 28.
Apparently the couple have sex in a moving car, their home, a hotel room in Hawaii and more. There's even a scene where Sam gets out his riding crop and spike collar and takes control of Karissa. The movie runs for two hours.

Back in 1974, the sexual revolution was in full swing and the adult entertainment business was on the verge of becoming Big Business. Deep Throat had created America's first porn star in 1972, but by 1974 Linda Lovelace was already retired and the industry was seeking the next big thing. Vanessa del Rio should have been that thing, except in 1974 there were no ethnic sex stars. Undeterred, Vanessa took any role they'd give her, because, amazingly, she was there for the sex more than the money. Fans, awed by her ferocious onscreen sexuality, made her a top box office draw and America's first Latina star. Retired since 1986, Vanessa del Rio remains a sexual icon who cuts across all ethnic boundaries. What her fans don't know is that her real life was, and is, as wild as anything she did on film.
