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.

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.
Farrah Abraham Admits:
I Made a Porno
But I Want MILLIONS to Release It
4/10/2013 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Farrah Abraham is finally copping to shooting a full-on porn -- with A-list porn star James Deen -- but says even though it was intended for her personal scrapbook ... she's willing to sell it for $2 million.
The ex-"Teen Mom" star's reason for shooting the XXX video is simply the best ... telling TMZ she wanted to immortalize her smokin' hot 21-year-old body -- for her personal collection -- so she could look back on it when she's old.
Guess Olan Mills was booked?
Farrah, who initially denied a sex tape existed, says she's pissed at her penis-for-hire -- because Deen let the cat out of the bag ... telling our camera guy the whole staged shoot was Farrah's idea.
Farrah says she wants nothing to do with Deen now (we suspect that's mutual) and took a parting shot, telling us -- "If my ex-boyfriend Derek were alive, I would've rather it had been him with me."
Farrah's baby daddy Derek Underwood died in a car accident in 2008.
As for the sex vid going public ... Farrah says her lawyer is dealing with a porn company, and she "will not be settling for anything less than a couple million" bucks.
Everyone has a price.
The Truth Comes Out ...
Of Her Bikini
4/9/2013 3:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Bogus sex tape peddler Farrah Abraham just can't hide it anymore ... her breasts that is.
Abraham went frolicking on an L.A. beach earlier today in a barely-there bikini, where she celebrated the imminent release of her totally-staged "sex tape" with porn star James Deen.
TMZ broke the story ... Deen blew the lid off Farrah's sex tape plot yesterday ... telling us he was approached by a porn company to stage the sex tape over the weekend ... and that Farrah was behind the whole thing.
And we're not complaining ... at all.
Farrah Abraham Concocted
Sex Tape Plot
4/9/2013 9:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Here's a shocker ... "Teen Mom" Farrah Abraham's so-called "sex tape" with porn star James Deen was a SETUP ... devised by Farrah herself ... so says her XXX co-star James Deen.
Deen tells TMZ, he was approached by an unidentified porn company to shoot the porno with Farrah over the weekend ... and they did. He says the plan was to pass the porn off as a "sex tape," but the plan fell apart.
Deen believes the ruse began to unravel Sunday when he and Farrah were shot leaving the Vivid Entertainment offices, holding hands.
He says, "I think what happened is that [the porn company was] going to pass it off as a 'sex tape' and somebody saw us coming out of a building together and people asked me what's going on ... so I was like we're making a porno!" (Deen wouldn't say if the "company" was in fact Vivid.)
And the kicker ... despite Farrah's poorly-worded protests, Deen says she was the one behind it the whole time, telling us, "Everybody's trying to make it this story, but really [Farrah] wanted to make a sex tape."
But how good was she really? We had to ask ... and Deen doesn't hold back.
We should say ... it's possible a legitimate Farrah sex tape exists somewhere ... but according to Deen, this ain't it.
Farrah Abraham's Mom
My Baby's NOT
That Kinda Girl
4/9/2013 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Farrah Abraham's mom has blind faith in her daughter who has a penchant for drinking, boob jobs, lesbian romps and now ... porn.
Debra Danielsen is still not convinced her daughter shot a porn tape. TMZ however, IS convinced ... in fact, we're 100% sure she shot the skin flick Sunday with dong-master James Deen.
Debra tells us ... her daughter's not the type that would make a sex tape, BUT IF SHE DID it's not her fault. She says, "My daughter has never expressed interest in things like that. She was not brought up that way." Debra goes on about her little girl who gave birth at 16 ... "We have religious beliefs."
As for who Debra thinks IS responsible ... it's those dastardly people behind the tape.
We're hearing James Deen may have been behind things ...
Yes, I'm Farrah Abraham's

It's twue, it's twue ... it's reawwy twue ... James Deen's gargantuan penis IS the co-star in the Farrah Abraham sex tape ... at least according to James Deen.
Deen -- a professional porn star -- tells TMZ, "Word travels fast ... it isn't even edited yet. We shot it yesterday."
When asked if the two were dating, based on the fact they were seen holding hands yesterday, Deen said, "Definitely not dating. Got tested together on Friday and then saw her on set. That is my only experience with the lady."
As we first reported, the XXX footage is being shopped around to various porno companies -- including Vivid. We spoke to Vivid honcho Steve Hirsch who tells us he's seen the entire tape and says, "It's amazing ... and I'm doing everything in my power to get the rights to put it out."
Note -- if you don't get the first line in this post, you should really watch "Blazing Saddles."
Hand In Hand
w/ Giant Male Porn Star
4/8/2013 8:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Farrah Abraham was gettin' super hands on with one of the biggest male porn stars in the biz yesterday ... James Deen ... fueling rumors that he's the co-star in the "Teen Mom" star's sex tape.
Farrah and James -- who, along with having genitals that resemble an elephant trunk, once starred in a mainstream movie with Lindsay Lohan -- were photographed walking into the offices of Vivid Entertainment yesterday.
The two were holding hands ... but it's unclear if they're dating ... or just simply friends with professional benefits.
Farrah previously told TMZ she's AGAINST the release of the tape and is considering legal action to stop the footage from going public.
Sure she is.
