Carrie Prejean ready to sue porn distributor

If you thought Carrie Prejean was going away, think again.

I mentioned Tuesday the book tour interview with Christianity Today, during which she said God loves boob jobs. I seems I also missed a report from RadarOnline that alleges there are seven more solo-sex tapes and 30 nude photos of the former Miss California floating around. (No confirmation of that one.) Now one of the Valley’s leading porn companies—if not the leading company—is looking to distribute the first tape that TMZ reported on earlier this month.

Prejean is ready to sue:

“[W]e are writing at this time to inform you that the unauthorized use of any videotapes or photographs of my client will result in her suing for invasion of privacy, including misappropriation of her likeness for a commercial purpose, as well as public disclosure of private facts,” Prejean’s attorney wrote to Vivid co-chairman Steve Hirsch. “She will also sue for intentional infliction of emotional distress and seek full consequential and punitive damages.”

Gotta say I agree with Prejean on this one. Something called privacy or at least the right of publicity. Prejean is enough of a public figure that it’s fair for reporters to dig into her background and learn she’s not who she claims to be. But the distribution of this tape would serve nothing but prurient interests, which is where all discussions of Prejean seem to be going these days.
