Kim Kardashian, Camille Grammer & More: Before They Were Reality Stars, They Were PORN Stars!

Browse our gallery & tell us: Do you have less respect for stars who got their starts on sex tapes?

We all make mistakes — but in the cases of these five celebrities, sometimes those mistakes can lead to big bucks and worldwide fame! Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian are among the tabloid staples who owe much of their notoriety to “leaked” sex tapes, which led to reality shows… among other things. Join us as we walk down Sex Tape Memory Lane, and tell us which celeb YOU think shamelessly profited the most.

  1. Though we have yet to feast our eyes on any of these gems, Camille Grammer starred in several softcore pornos back in the ’90s — and when her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills discovered stills of the movies online, they e-mailed the photos to each other! Can’t say we blame them.
  2. A sex tape starring Kim Kardashian and then-boyfriend Ray J was released by Vivid Entertainment in 2007. Kim eventually settled with the porn giant in court for about $5 million.
  3. Though the tape was released after she hit it big on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, reality TV villainess Danielle Staub starred in an X-rated home movie — and she filmed it herself!
  4. This one’s a doozy! Kendra Wilkinson – who got her start as one of Hugh Hefner‘s main Playboy Bunnies — claimed her sex tape was “leaked” when it hit the web in May 2010, though was quick to report that Kendra had actually planned to sell the tape herself back in 2008! Shameless, or what?
  5. And there’s the princess of celebrity sex tapes: Paris Hilton! Her raunchy home video, marketed as One Night in Paris by its co-star Rick Solomon, hit the internet in 2003 — one week before Paris’ show, The Simple Life, premiered on FOX.

Why would you be stupid and film your lovemaking? That’s just asking for trouble, esp in this day of youtube and facebook. I’m so glad I grew up before all this. It must suck that anytime you’re wild, somebody could be catching it on tape and upload it later. So girls, think about that before you enter that wet t-shirt contest or flash your tatas at spring break. You never know where people’s videos will end up.

These Celebrities (With No talent) are showing that the Americans are shallow (I don’t want to say other word). The media is selling them to us by force everywhere I go I see something about The Great Kirdashian or same kind of “celebrity”, I know that some of them are good looking but not more than that. What is so dangerous is the message our kids is getting from them it is like there is nothing wrong as long as you will be paid for it. I remember in the old days people will get famous for their voice or acting or dancing but now it is for how big your ass. it is really a shame

I agree with the majority of thoughts about these people. Why they wish to degrade themselves for the benefit of money is beyond me. They’re nothing but a bunch of nasal nosed whiney nothings. T.V. execs should be ashamed that they aren’t in the forefront of intelligent productions.
Let’s get rid of the filth being shoved down the noses of young innocent people. These people are without any doubts the epitomy of bottom feeders.

Camille Grammer is liked by all the other housewives. Kyle moans groans complains about camille constantly. She is the attack bull dog. She demeans her sister every chance. The real issue is that Kelsey abandoned his wife and young children and made a public display of his disgusting despicable behavior. He paraded his shameless mistress on tv. Has he no concern for his children and the long term effect on their innocent lives? In the reality world kyle texted to her friends nude photos of camille and implied the other wives participated. Kyle threw her castmates under the bus to promote a bogus point. They have too much class and style unlike kyle. The other housewives are concerned about their images. Kyle is so proud and takes great pleasure in outing camille that she doesn’t realize how this reflects on her true trashy mean classless personal character. Skank may be too kind a word for you kyle. Luckily her husband has shown he is kind and evenhanded. The photos of camille are from r-rated soft core movies made about 20 years ago which are relatively tame by today’s standards.

There’s a big difference between agreeing to do a porn movie (Camille Grammer) and making a for personal us sex tape with your boyfreind who after the break up ells it on the internet for money .
