2010 was the year of the sex tape. This phenomenon was created by a perfect storm of the building peep culture and digital technology revolutions. While celebrities like Rob Lowe, Pamela Anderson, Paris Hilton, and Kim Kardashian paved the way for sex tape scandals, 2010 was the first year that a maelstrom of sex tape were released. Digital technology has made filming sexual romps as easy as turning on a cellphone. And instead of storing a raunchy video on a clunky tape, these celebrities could upload x-rated content to digital platforms where hackers, computer techs, "friends," or the fame hungry could easily leak these videos to the public. Desperate to turn a profit in the floundering adult market, porn giant Vivid Entertainment repeatedly risked battling celebrities in court for the big bucks sex tapes of quasi celebrities can generate. Getting a taste of this money, and the increased fame that such sex tapes bring, most of these sex tape stars are willing to settle out of court for a chunk of the profits. More than ever though, fame whores, celebrity mistresses, and fading reality stars have discovering that they can gain some serious media attention even for rumors about having a sex tape.

1. Kendra Wilkinson:

In May a sex tape of an 18-year-old Kendra and then boyfriend, Justin Frye, surfaced and was quickly acquired by Vivid. Kendra Exposed soon surpassed Kim Kardashian's as the best selling celebrity sex tape of all time. Even though Wilkinson tried to stop the tape's release, RadarOnline discovered that in 2008 the former Girl Next Door created the company, Home Run Productions LLC, in an attempt to sell the tape.  Vivid eventually paid her a lump sum of $680,000 as well as half of the profits.

2. Chelsea Handler:

Chelsea Handler has made a career of exploiting celebrities caught in tabloid scandals and recounting her romantic trysts with midgets. When the news of her sex tape broke, Handler went on her show, Chelsea Lately, saying that she made the tape over ten years ago when she was 23 as a joke: “I would like to say to RadarOnline, thanks for ruining my surprise Christmas gift to my staff, and number two, it was made as a joke. I put it on an audition tape for a comedy club, because I’m a comedian, and I’ve been showing it at birthday parties for fucking years!” If it was a joke, it's a ballsy one. The tape opens with Handler’s stand-up routine. After she’s well into her set, the video abruptly cuts to Handler naked in a bedroom with a man. On hands and knees, she grins at the camera several times while her breasts bounce into view. When finished, the man asks in a British accent, “Did we get the fucking shot?”

3. Montana Fishburne:

While it’s widely rumored that some socialites and quasi-celebrities secretly leak their own sex tapes, no “celebrity” has ever admitted to making a sex tape as a means to gain fame. But that’s exactly what Laurence Fishburne’s daughter, Montana Fishburne did, performing under the name Chippy D in a porn released by Vivid. “I’ve watched how successful Kim Kardashian became and I think a lot of it was due to the release of her sex tape,” Fishburne said. Montana Fishburne: An A-List Daughter Makes her XXX Debut was released in August and featured over an hour of footage with Fishburne.  Montana is now considering a multi-picture deal with Vivid and has cut ties with her father, who was upset about her career choice.  Despite her lack of fame the video was still one of the better selling celebrity sex tapes of the year, possibly because of the production quality. This video wasn't Montana's first attempt at using her body to gain fame. Fishburne earned some publicity when she was arrested for prostitution but cut a deal with prosecutors for a lesser charge. Also, Fishburne unsuccessfully tried out for the pages of Playboy, the photos of which Playboy released after her sex tape surfaced.

4. Tila Tequila:

Tila Tequila gained fame for being the most popular artist on Myspace. While Tequila went on to film two seasons of the MTV dating show, A Shot at Love, the bisexual seductress is best known for her photo spreads in men’s magazines like Maxim and Penthouse, and for her misguided singing career. Since her reality show, Tequila has stayed in the tabloids through a number of scandals. She was allegedly choked by former boyfriend Shawne Merriman, which ended in a lawsuit requiring her to pay Merriman 2 million. In 2009, Tequila was engaged to heiress Casey Johnson a month before Johnson died naturally from diabetic ketoacidosis. In November news broke that a sex tape of Tequila was set to be released. The tape was filmed in 2004 with then boyfriend, musician Francis Ten, while the couple was vacationing in St. Barts. Tequila claimed Ten tried to extort $75,000 from her to keep the tape from being released. She then went to court to stop it. Tequila’s lawyer claimed the tape invaded her privacy and would negatively impact her image. The judge sided with Ten, citing the fact that Tequila already exploits her sexuality for profit. Tequila supposedly has another sex tape with a woman floating around, but this video has yet to surface.

5. Danielle Staub:

Hustler released a 75 minute sex tape of Real Housewives of New Jersey’s villain, 47-year-old mother of two, Danielle Staub. Hustler claims the footage was shot last September, months after Staub successfully blocked another sex video of her and her ex, Steve Zalewski, in June of 2009. Zalewski, 27, who repeatedly loaned Stuab large sums of money until she dumped him on the show, says Staub was a raging nymphomaniac. “Not only does she want to have sex all the time, but she loves the thrill of doing it in public places, where she might get caught... She wanted to make love in restaurant bathrooms every time we went out — she’d get excited and say, 'The people can hear you doing it outside!’” A sex tape is nothing compared to Staub’s sordid past. In 1986, Staub worked as an escort in Miami under the name Angela Minelli. That year she was arrest for helping one of her clients, who happened to be a major cocaine dealer for the Colombian drug cartels, phone in ransom demands to the father of a kidnap victim.

6. John Edwards: (unreleased)Rumors of a sex tape of John Edwards and mistress Rielle Hunter resurfaced with the release of a tell-all book, The Politician, by Edwards’ former aide, Andrew Young—-the loyal aide who helped facilitate Edwards’ affair and even claimed to be the father of Edwards’ lovechild. Young says he accidentally discovered the DVD in 2007 while going through a stack of Hunter’s unmarked DVDs. Why would Young have access to Hunter’s house and personal possessions? Because Young moved Hunter into his house with his wife and children. Hunter was originally hired to make videos for Edwards’ presidential campaign, and that she did. The tape was never leaked, but it reportedly featured a variety of sex acts, as well as Hunter handling the camera in the beginning. The few sources Young showed the tape to have mentioned the surprising size of Edwards’ penis.

7. Heidi Montag, Spencer Pratt, and Karissa Shannon: (fake)

Like the MTV “reality show,” The Hills, which unleashed the two-headed celeb-zilla that is “Speidi” on the world, it’s impossible to tell what’s real and what’s a publicity stunt with Pratt and Montag. Perhaps realizing he didn’t have any marketable skills after getting "divorced" and being kicked off The Hills for his instability (which is saying a lot considering the most notable talent among reality stars is their instability), Pratt unveiled his retirement plan: a sex tape featuring “a website’s worth” of sexual material of his ex—including a girl-on-girl scene with Playboy Playmate and Clearwater native, Karissa Shannon. Despite Shannon's public ridicule of Pratt, which seemed to suggest the tape was real, no such tape was released.

8. Brittney Jones:

You know you're famous when a woman can become famous just for claiming to have had an affair with you. Brittney Jones said she met Ashton Kutcher at a bowling alley then spent the night with him in the house he shares with wife Demi Moore. "He's a great lover," Jones told Star Magazine. "Very considerate and sweet. And it was very special to me. I felt totally comfortable in his arms. It was tender and nice—-not some random sex act." Jones later insisted that Ashton and Demi have an open relationship, with plenty of threesomes. After nude pictures surfaced of Jones passed-out on a bedroom floor, she sold a sex tape of herself and her current boyfriend to Vivid. Kutcher is threatening to sue Vivid if they include his first name on the cover. Vivid plans to go forward with the release.

9. Mindy McCready:

It was a big year for Mindy McCready. The former Mistress of Roger Clemens, former country western singer, and former Celebrity Rehab reality star had a sex tape of her released by Vivid. In addition to getting down on film, she also swaps stories about former celebrity lovers like Dean Cain and Alan Jackson. She says that Clemens was good in bed but suffered from occasional impotence.

10. Devon James and Tiger Woods: (fake)

Devon James, (aka Melinda Janette/Melinda Brinling-Caso) the self-proclaimed “porn queen” and prostitute with an arrest record, first gained notoriety when she claimed to be paid $2,000 for a threesome with Tiger Woods. Later the 29-year-old also claimed her nine-year-old son was Woods’ lovechild despite previous court-ordered DNA proof that the child belonged to another man. Devon then claimed she had a sex tape featuring Woods which she shopped to Vivid, who refused to buy the material. Devon then claimed that she and her husband Nick Janette found a different company that paid $350,000 down for the tape. James set-up a website to take pre-orders. Then she claimed that they couldn't release the tape because she reached a settlement with Woods' lawyers.  The couple said that everyone who purchased a pre-order of the tape had been refunded except for about two dozen people. When one of RadarOnline's employees attempted to get his money back, he was told to file a complaint with PayPal, which promised to take the matter up with the vendor.
