Joe Francis' GF to Vivid Honcho

Thanks for Keeping

My Hoo Ha Under Wraps

Joe Francis and his hot blonde GF can't thank Steve Hirsch enough for snatching their sex tape off the market -- in fact, Joe's GF has even sent the Vivid honcho a thank-you letter, gushing about how Steve kept her private parts ... private.

TMZ has obtained a copy of the letter Abbey Wilson sent to Hirsch. Here's the transcript:

Steve,

Joe has always said what a stand up guy you are in business and what a great friend you are. I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping Joe and I out in this unfortunate situation. It's calming to know that we have such a loyal, true friend when an unexpected problem arises. You are a compassionate, warm hearted, and caring man that we are so grateful to have in our lives.

Thank you again,   
Abbey Wilson


As we reported, a sex tape featuring Wilson and the "Girls Gone Wild" honcho was being shopped to various media outlets. Francis had threatened to sue everyone and their mother over the tape, claiming it was stolen from Wilson's iPad.

When the person selling the tape went to Vivid, Hirsch did Francis a solid and purchased it (for an unknown sum). He then returned the footage to Francis and promised never to release it.

It was an especially big deal for Abbey and Francis ... because neither has ever appeared naked on the Internet (shocking, we know).

Now that's what (porn) friends are for.

Thanks for the open letter Abbey. Remember when people used to pick up telephones and have private conversations with others? (Oh, and the other person's voice wasn't constantly cutting out?)

You gotta be kidding me. Now TMZ is paying for a thank you note from one s***my pornographer to another? This is a new low, and that's saying something.

That sex tape wasn't anything special. We watched it a couple of times and laughed our a$$es off. Gotta do something about that mole.

Best Joe Francis' story that nobody ever really talks about:


Back in 2004 some guy broke into his home and forced Joe to use a dildo on himself while the guy videotaped it. Later the guy tried to blackmail Francis by threatening to release the tape.



THAT'S the hilarious sex tape I want to see leaked.
Normally I wouldn't find this sort of thing funny but Joe Francis is a giant douche so I declare it hilarious.

Can anyone tell me what Beverly Hills plastic surgeon can give me that "I do all the coke I want, f*ck 19 year old girls on principle, and get rich selling smut, while occasionally having a little plastic surgery just to stay "fresh" look"?? It's amazing how these guys look so good for doing absolutely nothing that actually matters..

BIG congratulations to Abbey's lawyer/PR b*tch/press writer. DESPITE that fact that phrases such as "It is calming to know that we have such a loyal, true friend" are never EVER uttered by real people, and therefore her "literary efforts" can be taken as "not hers" and "paid for" and "b*ll****" ... she's clearly made the effort to whine to someone who "did something about it". As grovelly letters go, this rates about 2.5 out of 10, so not a HUGE effort (read "didn't spend much money on it) ....

.... but really, Joe Francis and anyone he knows thinking they can protect anything they ever did or said online? Well, priceless, as the ad says.

You don't enforce rules on others but live by different ones just cos you want to, unless you're a political or royal power. And Joe Francis - surely - never imagined he was immune on that basis? I suspect mind-altering substances were what made him think he was immune.

Lessons to be learned ... let's see who does, who doesn't.

LMAO @ Abbey Wilson worrying about a sex tape leak. She shoulda worried about a thieving tape leak. Google "Abbey Wilson thief" she got caught on a guy's security camera stealing a bunch of stuff from the guy's home. Joe has tried to erase all traces of the tape online, but there are a few he can't get deleted. This girl is a piece of trash. What's that about "the company you keep"?
