Farrah Abraham is a backdoor crowd pleaser for sure ... because there was such intense, pent-up interest in her porn video, it crashed Vivid's site.
According to our porn sources ... Farrah's 70-minute debut, "Backdoor Teen Mom," lured in more than 2 million visitors in just 12 hours Monday ... annihilating the record previously held by Kim K and Ray J -- which attracted 600,000 during the same time frame.
Farrah swamped Vivid's servers so hard ... the site went down Monday morning for 9 minutes ... which is more than enough time to satisfy most of the buyers -- trust us ...
Vivid honchos tell us they were able to access additional servers to handle, as they put it, "the immense load."
For the record ... Farrah also handled the immense load.
Signs 1st Endorsement Deal
5/6/2013 2:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Farrah Abraham is following the Kim Kardashian Steps to Fame Playbook to perfection -- TMZ has learned the newly-minted porn star has just inked her first endorsement deal ... and the check has its fair share of zeroes at the end of it.
The Backdoor Teen Mom has signed on to endorse a product called Raspberry Tones ... which bills itself as a "diet and fat-loss" pill. We're told it wasn't the sex tape that caught the company's eye (ok, maybe a little) but rather the bikini pics of Farrah that surfaced last month.
According to our sources, Farrah loved the idea of endorsing a health product and couldn't pass up the payday ... which, we're told, is somewhere in the low six figures.
A rep for the company tells TMZ, "Farrah represents a growing audience of young, active people who take care of their health and use only natural products to look and feel great. Farrah looks fit and fabulous, and takes care of her body, and a lot of health-conscious people can look up to that."
Taking pills isn't really Farrah's strong suit, but you can't get pregnant if you skip one of these ... so she'll be fine.
Porn King to MTV
Farrah Sex Tape Is Coming
... Speak Now, Or Forever Hold Your Peace
5/6/2013 4:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The porn honcho behind the release of "Teen Mom" Farrah Abraham's sex tape is giving MTV -- which carries the show -- fair warning ... the video will be released to the world on Monday ... unless they come up with a really good legal reason to keep it under wraps.
Vivid Entertainment Prez Steve Hirsch is downright diabolical ... sending the network a "put-up-or-shut-up" ultimatum just days before the tape goes wide. Hirsch wants to know if there's something in Farrah's contract that would prohibit her from doing her backdoor tricks with porn star James Deen.
So the clock -- we said clock -- is ticking as the world waits to watch Farrah take a licking.

After scoring in the high six figure range for her highly anticipated porn debut in "Farrah Superstar: Backdoor Teen Mom," we're told the fame hungry star now wants to put her back into making a pole-dancing exercise video for new moms.
A mother's twerk is never done.

This just got real ... TMZ has obtained graphic images from Farrah Abraham's upcoming sex tape ... and they're way gnarlier than we expected.
The 21-year-old "Teen Mom" star initially denied there even was a XXX tape -- but came clean about its existence last month, after her co-star James Deen blew the lid off her little plot.
As we reported, Vivid Entertainment paid Abraham in the high 6-figure range (nearly $1 million) for getting down and dirty on camera ... and boy does she get dirty ... the pics are intense.
The tape's now called "Farrah Abraham: Backdoor Teen Mom" ... and you can guess why.

Even though Farrah said she was considering other offers ... sources close to the situation tell TMZ, Farrah finally inked a deal with Vivid ... for close to a million dollars.
Yes, nearly ONE MILLION DOLLARS.
Not only that, we've learned the 70-minute-long skin flick will be titled: "Farrah Superstar: Backdoor Teen Mom."

Former "Teen Mom" star Jenelle Evans DENIES she was in possession of heroin Tuesday at the time of her arrest.
A source close to Jenelle tells TMZ, Jenelle says the drugs recovered by police inside Jenelle's North Carolina home -- including 12 bindles of heroin and Percocet -- were not hers ... and she had no idea they were in the house.
Jenelle's lawyer, Dustin Sullivan, tells us, they're going to fight it and beat the rap.
Jenelle was also arrested for assault after allegedly attacking her husband with a piece of furniture -- but according to sources, Jenelle says it was self-defense during a domestic brawl. Her hubby was also arrested.
Booted From Home ...
After Heroin Arrest
4/25/2013 12:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
"Teen Mom" star Jenelle Evans has been thrown out of her home -- following her heroin arrest this week ... TMZ has learned.
Sources connected to the troubled MTV star tell us ... Jenelle and her husband Courtland Rogers had been living together at Courtland's mother's house ever since they got married. But after Jenelle and Courtland were arrested for assault and heroin possession in North Carolina this week, Courtland's mom decided she'd had enough and banned J.E. from the home.
Sources say ... Jenelle's stuff was packed up in boxes Tuesday -- and the 21-year-old was told to come collect her crap, or else.
We're told Jenelle arrived to the home late Tuesday night -- accompanied by her mother and a police officer -- but even the cop couldn't prevent the drama that ensued.
Sources say ... Jenelle fired some profanity at Courtland's mom -- and accused the family of stealing her laptop computer -- before eventually leaving the scene in a huff (with her boxes).
We're told Jenelle had a pit bull that she cared for at the home -- but decided to leave the dog with the Rogers family. The sad part -- sources say Courtland's mom can't afford to care for the dog on her own, so she's now searching for a family to adopt the little guy.
As for Courtland, we're told he's NOT banned from the house -- and the family is "open" to having him back at the home.
Calls to Jenelle have not been returned.

Farrah Abraham had another creepy encounter with James Deen ... but it had nothing to do with porno sex -- or even the real James Deen.
The sex-tape Teen Mom received an email Monday from someone posing as the porn star ... and threatening to call Child Protective Services on her ... apparently for bringing her daughter to her negotiation with Vivid Entertainment, as TMZ first reported.
"Yup definitely calling CPS ... have fun with driving and filming your daughter at the same time and bringing her to Vivid entertainment. You fail at life," said the message obtained by TMZ ... which came from an email address that includes Deen's full name.
Says Deen: WASN'T ME!
"Personally I would like to apologize to Farrah on behalf of whoever sent this email and let her know that I am on her side and will happily verify that her child was not exposed to any adult content during the duration of this shoot," Deen wrote us.
He adds: "Also… Not cool people!!!!! Leave the girl alone!!!!!”"
Aw, seems like he's really ready to bury the uh, hatchet.
'Teen Mom' Star Jenelle Evans
Heroin & Assault
4/23/2013 1:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Jenelle Evans is back behind bars -- the "Teen Mom 2" star was arrested in North Carolina today for possession of a BUNCH of heroin ... and is also accused of attacking her husband, TMZ has learned.
According to court documents obtained by TMZ ... cops discovered 12 bindles of heroin in Jenelle's possession when they arrived to her home following an alleged domestic dispute with her husband, Courtland Rogers.
FYI -- a bindle is commonly known as a small paper packet used for storing drugs.
According to the docs, Evans was also found to be illegally in possession of Percocet (a prescription painkiller) ... as well as plastic wrapping paper and a glass smoking pipe, which is considered illegal drug paraphernalia.
As for the assault charge, cops say Evans struck Rogers with a piece of furniture during a domestic dispute.
Rogers was arrested too -- cops say he assaulted Jenelle by "hitting her on the neck and striking her with a closed fist on her head."
Cops say Rogers was also in possession of heroin with intent to manufacture, sell, distribute ... and drug paraphernalia. According to police, both Evans and Rogers denied possession of the heroin ... which is why they were both charged.
At the time of her arrest, 21-year-old Evans was also served with a warrant for failing to pay child support.
Evans has a history of legal problems -- she tested positive for marijuana and opiates while on probation ... and she was also involved in an epic girl-on-girl brawl in 2011.
Brings Her Dad & Daughter
to Sex Tape Negotiation
4/22/2013 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Question: Where is the last place on Earth you should bring your dad and your kid?
Answer: Your sex tape negotiation. Ewwwwwwwwwww!!!!!
But that's exactly what "Teen Mom" star Farrah Abraham did on Sunday when she hit up the offices of Vivid Entertainment to negotiate a possible deal for her sex tape.
Farrah told our photog she is negotiating with two other companies and that she is considering Vivid's offer. She said she only brought her father along "for support" ... but when you check out the video, you can tell how uncomfortable he is about the whole thing.
Our photog also spoke to Vivid honcho Steve Hirsch after the meeting ... and even he thought bringing a young child to a porn office was a bad idea.
At least someone is the voice of reason.

4/20/2013 2:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Farrah Abraham needed to get far, far away from her judgy-wudgy mother ... so the "Teen Mom" put not one, but TWO STATES between them.
TMZ broke the story ... Farrah was living at her mom's place in Nebraska, but when mommy-dearest learned Farrah was behind (and in front of) the whole sex-tape scandal ... she kicked her out. Farrah says she chose to leave.
Regardless ... Farrah hightailed it 800 miles south to the Lone Star State. She's now leasing a two-bedroom apartment in Bee Cave (Google it) for $1,150 per month. We're told she's thrilled to be away from her mother.
As for the digs ... it comes with a terrace, foothill views, top-level infinity pool and a fitness center. Plus, we're told Farrah's dad lives just down the street.
You know what that means ... FREE BABYSITTING!!!!
Farrah Abraham to Mom
You Can't Kick Me Out ...
4/17/2013 12:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Farrah Abraham's sex tape has created a fiery rift between her and her mother -- whom she lives with -- and now, Farrah's packing up and moving out.
You'll recall, Farrah's mom pretended to be blissfully ignorant of her 21-year-old daughter's porno -- telling us Farrah would never star in such a video ... let alone commission it ... protesting, "We have religious beliefs."
Fact is Farrah did it ... and when it came out that she was the one who masterminded the sex tape (info courtesy of James Deen) mama flipped out.
Sources close to Farrah tell us, the two have been arguing tooth and nail ever since ... so today, Farrah packed up a U-Haul and hit the road.
Sources say Farrah's mother gave her the boot ... but Farrah tells us, "After meeting with my counselor today, I've packed up everything and I'm not talking to my mom anymore."
She adds, "My mother will never be a good mother to me and it is too hurtful to deal with let alone have my daughter Sophia around it."
Ironic ... Farrah preaching about "good mothers."
