At present, Mindy McCready seems none too happy about Vivid's plans to release her sex tape to the public; even going so far as to threaten a lawsuit. But perhaps she should consider another strategy.
For example, the strategy pursued by Greek model Julia Alexandratou. Though Julia initially denied any involvement with her sex tape, released Sirina Entertainment, she now freely admits that she willingly got down for the camera in exchange for a few bottles of Dom Perignon and an undisclosed sum. And from what we can tell, Julia's only benefited from her naughty little movie (and we definitely have).
So, come on, Mindy, what do you say? It's not like Vivid's any more exploitative than, oh, Dr. Drew. In fact, we'd wager Vivid makes you look much, much better than your friends at VH1.
