They showed her the money. She'll show the world how she is beneath the sheets—and in a moving car, and in her house, and in a hotel room in Hawaii…
Just a week after threatening to call in the lawyers to halt distribution of her raunchy sex tape, former Girl Next Door Karissa Shannon and her boyfriend, Smallville actor Sam Jones III, have pulled a 180.
The two have decided to permit Vivid Entertainment to release their sexcapades in exchange for a cut of the profits.
And the X-rated purveyors are quickly hyping the tape, due out next week.
"This is the absolutely the most extreme celebrity sex tape ever brought to us and we're excited to have it," says Vivid founder Steven Hirsch. "Even though Karissa and Sam made this for their own enjoyment, it's shot extremely well and is as provocative as it is sexual."
Hirsch maintains he received the tape from a third party, whom he has refused to identify.
Last week, Shannon insisted that she and Jones didn't want their naughty videos out in the wild.
"There's stuff between me and Sam [from when] I was at the Mansion still with Hef," she told E! News. "I was 18 years old and I was dating Sam. It's really embarrassing. I'm just really trying to move forward and this thing is just really setting me back."
The couple even threatened to sue, releasing a joint statement saying Vivid, which also distributed the sex tapes of Pamela Anderson, Kim Kardashian and Montana Fishburne, was given the tape "without our knowledge or permission. Our lawyers are on it and will be taking care of the situation."
Hirsch said he was hoping to make a deal quickly on the tape, saying he was "really impressed at how amazingly hot it was."
"Never has a girl this beautiful been this nasty...she's completely uninhibited with Sam," says Hirsch.
Well, now the public can be the judge of that.
