Jasmine Waltz, a sometime actress and model most famous for dating celebrities like David Arquette and Ryan Seacrest, released her sex tape, "Real Jasmine," in 2011. She told us anyone looking to parlay her 15 minutes of fame into a big sex tape payday better watch out.
“It’s a very untrustworthy business,” she said.
But celebrity sex tape star Myla Sinanaji – “famous” for dating Kris Humphries after he was dumped by Kim Kardashian -- and who released her video with VividCeleb in September -- disagreed.
“It’s not a big deal to me. Everybody does it. I have friends that do, it but I profited on my tape,” Sinanaji said. "I feel like if other people were given the opportunity to make a tape for that amount of money they wouldn’t be so quick to judge.”
