Carrie to Vivid: I Said No, Stupid

11/18/2009 3:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Carrie Prejean has her panties in a bunch, because Vivid Entertainment won't take no for an answer.

Carrie Prejean

TMZ has obtained a letter from Carrie's lawyer, threatening to sue Vivid if it releases videos or photos of Carrie's solo, XXX greatest hits. Carrie's lawyer, Charles LiMandri, told Vivid, even though he made it clear yesterday that no means no, "...your company has apparently told the media that it plans to publish the videotapes and/or photographs of my client with or without her permission."

LiMandri left nothing to the imagination, warning Vivid Carrie will sue for invasion of privacy, misappropriation of her likeness as well as public disclosure of private facts ... if Vivid makes good on its threat.

LiMandri will also add a claim for emotional distress for good measure. And he claims some of the videos were shot when she was only 17. Her ex-boyfriend -- the guy to whom she sent the tapes -- begs to differ.

Here's my take. This is all a charade. She and Vivid have a deal. She screams bloody murder when they release the tapes. She sues and they settle out of court for a pre-agreed amount. This way she can claim that they were released without her permission but still pockets a tidy sum (since she didn't get anything from the Miss USA pageant.) Vivid makes a tidy sum and everybody wins!

I want to personally thank all of you for not dragging me into this. Yes, I was a sitting President who had an affair with a fat, nearly underage intern and I lied about it under oath, but this Carrie business is far more important and detrimental to the world today than I ever was.

It's strange that the TMZ minions are so worried about Carrie and giving John Edwards, who was a heartbeat away from being in the White House, a complete pass for having an affair on his dying wife and fathering a bastard child out of it.

All Vivid has to do is leak the video footage. Other people will spread it all over the Internet for them. That would cause Carrie to spend a lot of money on lawyers trying to prove they're the ones responsible, and she might not even win.

Vivid doesn't want to do this because they want Carrie to take the deal so they can make money from it. Carrie thinks they're bluffing about releasing the footage for free. We'll see who blinks first.

Hey Harvey,

Why didn't you guys ever release the video you got your hands on of Joe Biden's whore of a daughter snorting coke? Just curious.....

Would someone PLEASE state the name of the so-called boyfriend? I agree with a couple of prior posts that the guy is a COMPLETE COWARD. I would love for that guy to be disclosed to the media so those of us in San Diego could interview him...Heh heh heh....Or is that what the guy is after, like uber hanger-on Levi Johnston?

How exactly does this change the fact that Obama still hates the idea of gay marriage?????

All this because she agreed with the D-E-M-O-C-R-A-T President on gay marriage? Hmm........

93. evgriff,

I agree and disagree. A woman should NEVER photograph or video herself in any sort of compromising position in today's day and age. She was in love and trusted this coward, and it has clearly backfired. I hope she's able to do something to this worm.

As far as the Palin comparison, I think you're wrong. Carrie is only a story on liberal hate gossip sites like this one and Perez, not on the mainstream. The fear the liberals have of Palin far exceeds anything they feel towards Carrie.

Fair enough niles. At least your comment was subject related. As far as relevancy, I would agree that Sarah Palin is far more relevant than Carrie Prejean. I know many liberals (myself included) don't see her as President material right now but in a couple of years, who knows?! She might prove me wrong and I would be man enough to admit it if she did.

Hey Corky (post #99),

You're exactly right....The reason the empty suit (a.k.a. John Edwards) got a pass is because he was an ultra-left darling for a while & never transgressed his "ultra-leftness", and because he never purported to be a Christian. Some journalists with sprigs of a heart may also have held back due to his wife's condition. Edwards could have done anything (except take a right-leaning position) and still have fervent supporters. Carrie is simply an easy target for the laziest of journalists out there who know she is not the sleaze bucket Edwards or Bill Clinton continue to be to this day.

Corky, while it has nothing to do with this subject, I do want to let you know that not all Democrats felt that way. I am a Democrat and I was just as disgusted by John Edwards as I was by Carrie Prejean. I mean, bad enough to cheat on your wife but to do so while she's fighting for her life?! Pretty low.

Using aime's logic, that would mean Carrie is responsible for all the pornography the born again hypocrites preach against.

-------------------------------------------

Edwards ran on strong Christian values both times. He's a practicing Southern Methodist and would routinely work his faith into his stump speeches. Only difference is that he is a Democrat.

He is a million times the "Christian" hypocrite of Carrie. But since he claims to be a Dem, the quack leftist crazies give him a pass.
