Anthony Weiner's sexting partner could be taking her "talents" to video ... 'cause she was seen strollin' around with Vivid honcho Steve Hirsch this weekend -- and we all know how that story ends.
TMZ obtained video of Sydney Leathers -- fresh off her beachside bikini romp -- getting into Steve's car as she left the Vivid porn headquarters in Los Angeles on Saturday.
It's unclear if the two struck any kind of a deal ... but c'mon, you don't get in the car unless you're lookin' for a ride.

Joe Francis' GF to Vivid Honcho
Thanks for Keeping
My Hoo Ha Under Wraps
6/18/2013 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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:
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.
Joe Francis Sex Tape
But Will Never Be Released
6/17/2013 4:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The Joe Francis sex tape has been PURCHASED by a major porn company ... but the footage will never, ever, ever, ever see the light of day, TMZ has learned.
We broke the story ... a sex tape featuring the "Girls Gone Wild" honcho and his smoking hot girlfriend was being shopped to various media outlets. Francis had threatened to sue everyone and their mother over the tape, claiming it was stolen from his GF's iPad.
But Francis can call off his legal pit bulls (for a change) ... thanks to a HUUUUGE favor from Vivid Entertainment honcho Steve Hirsch.
Turns out, the two porn moguls are friends (same porny circles) ... and when the person selling the tape went to Vivid, Steve decided to do Francis a solid and snatched it off the market (price: unknown).
Hirsch then turned around and gave all of the footage to Joe, along with the promise he'd never release the tape.
As for why the porn kings didn't involve police ... Hirsch told us, "Because of the time-sensitive nature of the situation I made a decision to expedite the process and return the movie to its original owner."
TMZ reached out to Francis ... he had no comment.
Sex Tape Bikini
YANKED Off Ebay
5/18/2013 12:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The sale of the bikini Farrah Abraham wore for the cover of her sex tape has hit a snag ... eBay has pulled the listing down because it hasn't been washed since she wore it.
As TMZ first reported, Vivid Entertainment -- the porn studio behind the release of "Farrah Superstar: Backdoor Teen Mom" -- listed Farrah's pink crystal-encrusted two-piece with a starting bid of $500.
We're told eBay removed the listing and sent Vivid an email, saying, "Due to health and hygiene concerns our policy does not allow used clothing to be listed on the site unless the item has been washed first."
When the listing was pulled, bidding had reached a whopping $14,700!!!!!
We're told Vivid will wash the bikini and re-post the listing in a couple of days.
Worried She Could Get Pregnant
5/12/2013 2:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Newly minted porn star Farrah Abraham is so worried James Deen knocked her up while filming their infamous sex tape ... she peed on a stick.
Sources close to Farrah tell TMZ ... the former "Teen Mom" star hadn't had sex in more than a year before James got her ... and the duo didn't wear condoms while filming ... and Farrah wasn't on birth control. Basically all the makings for an after school special.
We're told Farrah recently missed her period and started freaking out, thinking she was growing a little porn spawn. So she went shopping for a pregnancy test at her local pharmacy.
We're going to go to out on a limb that she's NOT pregnant ... for 2 reasons.
1. We've seen the tape, and you don't get pregnant THAT way.
2. It's not that James' parting gift went IN her as much as ON her.
'Backdoor Teen Mom' Porn
Krushes Kim K Sex Tape
5/7/2013 1:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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.
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.
GRAPHIC SEX TAPE PHOTOS
5/1/2013 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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.
Closes Sex Tape Deal ...
High 6 Figures
4/29/2013 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Elaborate sex tape scams pay ... just ask "Teen Mom" star Farrah Abraham who finally struck a deal for her on-camera banging session ... in the HIGH six figures.
Last time we saw Farrah she was marching into the Vivid offices with her father and daughter in tow to talk dollars and cents with porn king Steve Hirsch -- who's been interested in buying the "Teen Mom"/James Deen XXX vid from the get-go.
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."
Backdoor moms rule.
By Fake James Deen

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.
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.
My Sex Tape!
4/13/2013 2:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Farrah Abraham is pretty confident about her status in the porn community ... because she's just threatened the KING of porn that she'll do to him what James Deen did to her if he releases her sex tape without her permission.
Farrah's target is Vivid honcho Steve Hirsch, who's seen the tape and wants it in the worst way. Problem is ... Hirsch isn't willing to pay the millions Farrah wants, so her lawyer fired off a cease and desist letter, acknowledging for the first time in writing the tape is HERS.
The letter says, "Ms. Abraham retains ownership rights in this video and any unlawful conduct could infringe on those rights."
We're guessing, like Mr. Deen did with Farrah, she'll meet Hirsch in the middle and the tape will go VERY public.
