Mimi Faust’s Sex Tape: More Than $400,000 in Pre-Sales — A New Record?
So many people are looking for shower rod tips these days! Love & Hip Hop Atlanta’sMimi Faust and her boyfriend, Nikko, made themselves a sex tape, and Mimi & Nikko: Scandal in Atlanta is set to drop Monday on Vivid.com. (Perfect viewing for the day after Easter?)
Vivid Entertainment has high expectations for the video, and Steve Hirsch told TMZ it’s one of the hottest pre-sellers he’s ever seen. He said they’ve made more than $400,000 in pre-sales, just off the meme-producing trailer. Apparently that’s unprecedented. But it’s not too surprising, when you consider all the hype out there. Who knew this thing would go viral? Even Kandi Burress of Real Housewives of Atlanta tried a shower move, which is just more free publicity.
Love & Hip Hop Atlanta Season 3 premieres Monday, May 5 on VH1, and in the super trailer you can hear Mimi worry about how the sex tape will affect her relationship with her 3-year-old daughter Eva. It’s a bit late to worry about that, but if releasing the tape is about money, then maybe Mimi can use that money for Eva’s education or other benefit.
Anyway, are you surprised to hear pre-sales have been so strong? It could just be more hype, unless you (or people you know) are part of the pre-sale numbers?
