If Farrah Abraham's sex tape was huge, Tori Spelling's could be titanic -- at least according to Vivid President Steve Hirsch, who's already prepared to offer big money to acquire the footage that Tori claims exists.
Hirsch just fired off a letter to Spelling, saying Vivid would like to make a "substantial offer" on the tape, presuming it's actually real (possibly in the millions).
Hirsch writes, "This is a serious offer for a real tape and it could yield significant returns to help you through your difficult financial situation." But first, Hirsch wants to see a clip of the tape to verify its authenticity.
Spelling recently revealed in her new book that she recorded a sex tape with her husband Dean McDermott on Valentine's Day 2009, and one of Dean's "friends" later claimed to have copied the file from Dean's comp.
Spelling says her lawyer quickly went on the attack and they didn't hear from the man again, but now the cat's out of the bag ... and Hirsch is pouncing on the opportunity.
It's unclear if Tori plans to take Hirsch up on his offer, but she might want to consider it -- Tori has also recently said that she and Dean are having money problems.
For what it's worth, Farrah Abraham earned in the "high six figures" for her tape ... nearly $1 million ... so Tori would probably get even more.

Porn King to U.S. Military
Sorry Weiner's Sexter
Masturbated on the Flag
8/8/2013 12:38 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Members of the U.S. military are pissed Anthony Weiner's sexting partner involved the American flag in her masturbation porn -- and TMZ has learned, the XXX king behind the video is so sorry ... he's editing the flag out of the tape entirely.
Sources close to Vivid honcho Steve Hirsch tell TMZ, Hirsch recently received a call from an active serviceman in Florida, complaining about Sydney Leathers' upcoming porn, in which she masturbates on top of the red, white, and blue.
We're told the man was NOT upset about the masturbation part -- he's a big Vivid fan after all -- but the American flag's involvement crossed the line, and he was going to have the DVD banned from his base.
We're told Hirsch profusely apologized to the man for offending anyone in the U.S. military -- a major porn consumer for obvious reasons -- and agreed to remove the American flag from Vivid's website as well as from Sydney's DVD.
And that seemed to do the trick -- we're told the man accepted Hirsch's apology, moved on with his porn-filled existence, and lived happily ever after. The end.

It's unclear how much Sydney got paid.
Most people think Sydney wasn't hot enough for Weiner to risk his political career -- so, as for her new porn, we gotta ask ...

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.
