Seven years ago, we all caught wind of an explosive sex tape that hit the internet featuring Ray J and then unknown Kim Kardashian.
Since the incident, we have really gotten to know Kardashian. We know about all the male entertainers claiming they “hit” her first, in-depth family drama and her life in the limelight. But, after all these years, people still wonder why Kim Kardashian is famous and relevant. The answer is simple. Kim Kardashian knew how to parlay her sex tape into multiple revenue streams, something even her former co-star Ray J is still working on.
Aside from her media franchise, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, she also has clothing lines, Shoedazzle.com, perfume, and jewelry. I wouldn’t be surprised if she was still eating from the airing of her wedding to Kris Humphries on E!
But, after the release of the teaser for the new season of Love & Hip Hop it seems that cast member Mimi Faust maybe taking notes from the Kardashian school for success. Faust revealed to her cast members that when she’s having sex with her boyfriend, she loses herself in the experience. She also revealed why she chose to document it. It is not uncommon for couples to express their love in the form of a sex tape and keep it in their archives.
Until, that is, we learned that she didn’t keep the tape in her private. Instead, she sold the rights to the tape to Vivid Entertainment, which is the same company that purchased Kim Kardashian’s tape. There are so many questions that are left unanswered, particularly about her motive. Is Mimi trying to get her own show? Is she trying to secure deals with major corporations? Will her sex tape secure a million dollar empire for her as it has for Kim Kardashian? What do you think?
