Kendra, Your Sex Tapes Will Be Sold Whether You Like It Or Not!

Although Kendra Wilkinson can sue Vivid Entertainment, she can’t avoid the inevitable — the tape WILL be released!

Although Kendra Wilkinson might not want the sex tapes she made with an ex-boyfriend at the age of 18 to be seen, she’s out of luck. Several lawyers tell HollywoodLife.com that the reality star, now 25, can’t actually prevent the tapes from being sold — but CAN sue the seller, Vivid Entertainment, after the damage has been done. Let us break it down for you….

• Even if Kendra didn’t agree to allow Vivid Entertainment to sell her sex tapes, it doesn’t mean the company will follow the rules. Many times it’s more profitable for Vivid to publish the tapes anyway, even if they get sued later on down the line. “If you write a Cease and Desist letter, that’s good evidence later to nail someone or hold someone to greater damages,” LA based lawyer Anthony Kornarens says, explaining, “It doesn’t stop them from [selling the tapes], but it makes the consequences greater.”

• Because of her former career as a Playboy bunny, it will be harder for Kendra to prove she’s been wronged. “An added hurdle for Kendra is that with the Playboy background it’s a little harder to show that it would hurt her career or cost her money,” Nashville-based lawyer Adam Dread says,, adding, “However, if someone uses your likeness you certainly have the right to sue for the rights of ALL profits made using your likeness. If [Kendra] loses a TV deal because of this, she certainly could deal with that. The jury would have to decide.”

•There are loopholes! Depending on what state the tape is sold in, if the tape wasn’t considered to be Kendra’s ‘property’, she has little say as to what happens to it! “It differs from state to state, but the general rule is that, if the tape or photo isn’t your property to start with, then you can’t weigh in on its release,” one Massachusetts lawyer, who declined to be named, says. “That’s especially true if you are a public figure, because the law says famous people have less of an expectation of privacy than a normal person.”

Kendra, this sucks! But even though you’ll have to suffer shame and embarrassment now, just think of the millions of dollars you’ll stand to make!

This would be earth shattering news if we never would’ve guessed in a million years that she would be dumb enough to make a sex tape. Look at her career so far…its revolved around a sex related industry.

She’s a wife and mother now so it was expected for her to make the public response she did even though she had actually tried to sell them just a few years earlier. Don’t feel sorry for her or believe what you read. She’ll be crying all the way to the bank! There are worse things that could happen to a person.

It’s no secret how she’s been making a living most of her adult life,so what’s all the Drama about?…,More publicity, Bigger Bank Account!! Personally I’m looking forward to getting my hand’s on a copy of that video!!! Keep up the good work Kendra!

One reaps what one sows, regardless of the reason for the sowing…just an immutable law of the universe!

I’m guessing you’re not the same writer who complained about a 17-year old wearing black leather head to toe and “looking too sexy” on an album cover. This site is so hypocritical it’s ridiculous!!

True – not the same writer. But how is this hypocritical? Do we, at any point, support or condone Kendra making a sex tape?
