If Farrah Abraham‘s sex tape was huge, Tori Spelling‘s could be titanic — at least according to Vivid President Steve Hirsch, who’s already prepared to offer big money to acquire the footage that Tori claims exists.
Hirsch just fired off a letter to Spelling, saying Vivid would like to make a “substantial offer” on the tape, presuming it’s actually real (possibly in the millions).
Hirsch writes, “This is a serious offer for a real tape and it could yield significant returns to help you through your difficult financial situation.” But first, Hirsch wants to see a clip of the tape to verify its authenticity.
Spelling recently revealed in her new book that she recorded a sex tape with her husband Dean McDermott on Valentine’s Day 2009, and one of Dean’s “friends” later claimed to have copied the file from Dean’s comp.
Spelling says her lawyer quickly went on the attack and they didn’t hear from the man again, but now the cat’s out of the bag … and Hirsch is pouncing on the opportunity.
It’s unclear if Tori plans to take Hirsch up on his offer, but she might want to consider it — Tori has also recently said that she and Dean are having money problems.
For what it’s worth, Farrah Abraham earned in the “high six figures” for her tape … nearly $1 million … so Tori would probably get even more.
Actress Rachel Mcadams is forced to dress up on Halloween in order to prevent fans from recognising her when she dishes out candy at her home.
The Notebook star has avoided the Hollywood scene in Los Angeles and opts for a simple life in her hometown of Toronto, Canada.
However, McAdams reveals that when it comes to Halloween, costumes are vital – because she once made the mistake of answering her door to a group of unsuspecting Mean Girls fans.
She tells Ellen DeGeneres, “I have to dress for Halloween now. I didn’t think about that before. I was giving out candy one year and some teenag…

Kevin Federline is now officially off the dating market – and he’s done the same with a California pad fit for his growing family.
The dancer-turned-rapper-turned-reality star is splashing out over $8K a month (no doubt with a bit of financial help from his superstar ex Britney Spears) on this pretty sweet spread, Celebuzz has learned.
Located a stone’s throw away from the Princess of Pop, Federline – who tied the knot Vegas-style with his longtime girlfriend/baby mama Victoria Prince, 30, over the weekend – actually keeps it classy with the Spanish Colonial that comes with nearly 6,000 square feet and plenty of room for his growing brood – Sean Preston, Jayden James, Kori Madison, Kaleb Michael, and almost 2-year-old daughter with Prince, Jordan Kay.
Originally on the market for nearly $2.5 million, the private abode can be found in Justin Bieber‘s swanky neck of the woods in Calabasas, Calif., with five bedrooms plus a family room, library, kid-friendly game room and theater. And the 15,000 square foot lot is so big it comes with multiples, like two staircases, three fireplaces, and three-car garage.
And on to the more important features for these newlyweds (who moved in April 2012) – the master suite comes with a sitting room and balcony, while outside you’ll find a custom pool, spa, waterfall and sport court.
Let’s just hope K-Fed, 35, treats this place better than the last mansion when he was sued for wrecking the pad and not paying rent.

Living in a zombie apocalypse must be hard for anyone, let alone the leader of a group. Yet still, when this fictional horror happens, time and time again we expect a man to rise up and take command. It’s just human nature – some people are born to lead, and just need the reason for doing so.
Rick Grimes is one of these men. As the for-all-intents-and-purposes protagonist of AMC’s smash hit The Walking Dead, Rick has all sorts of problems. He began the series comatose, dealt with an unfaithful wife, a disrespecting son, various psychopaths and his rapidly-unraveling best friend, and that was just for the first two seasons. The third saw him engage in out-and-out war against another settlement while attempting to keep control of his own insanity.
Simply put, the man has it tough, so it’s only natural he’s going to make a bad decision every now and again. After all, nobody’s perfect, and when you’re under this much strain, it’s always possible that you’re going to screw up. So in honour of Walking Dead’s upcoming fourth series (which looks freaking awesome, by the way) I’ve decided to catalogue some of the Grimes Paterfamilias’ worst mistakes. If he can avoid errors of this magnitude this up-coming season, the prison might just have a shot.
Needless to say, there’s a SPOILER WARNING in effect.

The news all Breaking Bad fans had been waiting for finally arrived last Thursday with the announcement that the hit Vince Gilligan-created crime drama is getting a spin-off.
Entitled “Better Call Saul”, the prequel will follow Walter White’s dodgy lawyer Saul Goodman before he ever became associated with the former Chemistry teacher-turned-meth-cook.
AMC have confirmed the show will be one hour in duration and will take a more comedic slant to the gritty drama currently on our screens.
The news was welcomed positively by fans who are waiting for the show’s two final episodes before Breaking Bad reaches what is guaranteed to be a thrilling conclusion come the end of the month.
The chance then to see more from the Albuquerque-based show long after its official conclusion can only be a positive thing, and you won’t be hearing any complaints from us.
By designing the spin-off as a prequel, a ton of opportunities are opened up, such as reviving recently-deceased characters and giving supporting cast members more prominent roles.
And, of course, we’re thrilled we will be seeing more of Bob Odenkirk’s fantastic character Saul, the shady lawyer at the centre of this new venture.
But he’s not going to make this show a success all on his own and here we take a look at 5 Characters we want to see return for the Spin-Off.

The Star Wars #1
Written by J.W. Rinzler
Art by Mike Mayhew
Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars
To quote the other guys “Its life Jim, but not as we know it,” based on George Lucas’ original draft of Star Wars, this series contains a lot of familiar names and locations but all played out very differently to its eventual cinematic incarnation. It’s an issue that demands repeat readings as it is next to impossible to read first time on its own without comparing it to the finished film. Once the novelty of recognizing characters and spaceships wears off, only one question remains – As a standalone comic is it any good? The answer, surprisingly, is yes. The tone has changed enough to differentiate it from Lucas’ space opera. The action is entertaining and characters, both new and old, have no trouble holding the reader’s attention.
The story opens with a Jedi, Kane Starkiller, hiding on a remote planet with his two sons, Annikin and Deak. A ship arrives containing a Sith Lord, that looks like a cross between Darth Vader and Bebop from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and attacks the two children killing Deak. Kane arrives, and in a beautiful panel, slices the attacker in half. Mike Mayhew’s art throughout the issue is a delight. It looks very cinematic and adds heft and scale that is required with an event book. He has managed to adapt Ralph McQuarrie’s conceptual art while adding his own touches without ever feeling like he is rethreading existing works.
The next arc of the book suffers from some of the same problems that affected the later trilogy, it gets bogged down with a lot of political to-ing and fro-ing. It is not quite Trade Federation blocking Naboo levels of boring but it isn’t far off. There is nice exchange between Kane and a man who looks like a ringer for George Lucas himself, called Luke Skywalker no less, when he is asked to continue Anakin’s Jedi training. Against the backdrop of this is an as-of-yet unnamed Emperor’s political plans to stop the Rebellion, before sending in the Empire’s troops to eradicate the Jedi once and for all.
There are a couple of nice cameos and nods to the original, Antilles gets a small scene, Princess Leia is introduced briefly as she leaves for university, General Vader is revealed and bears more than a passing resemblance to the crazy ghost chaser from “The Frighteners.” If there is one area where I felt let down it was with Vader who I thought deserved a far more memorable introduction then simply arguing with his underlings.
Overall the issue was a positive if flawed one. There are a number of potentially interesting threads and it is a nice sideways version of the movie. Hopefully the exposition heavy middle segment will not reoccur in future issues, the nice final line of the book seems to confirm that. The artwork is the real stand out, Mike Mayhew’s work is gorgeous. His designs of both ships and characters elevate the book above its sometimes clunky dialogue, as Harrison Ford famously said “you can type this $hit, but you can’t say it,” turns out even when typed it is still as clunky. Names like Darklighter, Starkiller, and Whitsun seem like they came from a small child’s playtime. There are a number of wonderful panels including a standout moment when Kane reviles the full extent the battle against the Sith has taken on his body. There is more than enough here to keep me interested in future issues and now that the mental hurdle of comparisons to the original has been overcome I can’t wait to see if the book can stand on its own two feet.

Fictional locations are almost as iconic as the characters who originate in them and some of them are visually very striking indeed.
When I first saw the likes of Krypton, Oa and, in particular, Asgard in the Man of Steel, Green Lantern and Thor movies respectively, I was blown away and seeing such locations brought to life on the big screen got me thinking which other examples would look great with a live action makeover.
The possibilities are endless, but I’ve pulled together a selection that I think would look particularly great in a live action movie (I should stress before you read on that my focus is mainly – though not explicitly – on comic book locations).
Without further ado, here are ten fictional locations that would look great in a live action movie…
