The Steve Harvey flub heard around the world continues to make waves, with the obligatory porn offer now confirmed by TMZ. Harvey, however, is not the target of this alleged million-dollar offer. Vivid founder and co-CEO Steve Hirsch instead wasted little time crafting a letter to Miss Colombia, Ariadna Gutierrez, offering the temporary Miss Universe the chance to star in some adult offerings in the historic vein of previous Vivid-distributed titles.
"Like so many others I have followed closely the debacle which you unfortunately were part of," Hirsch writes. "That could not have been an enjoyable evening." Brilliant understatement, yeah? Gutierrez herself recently described the Harvey-instigated mix-up as part of her "destiny," though previous 'grams hinted that she wasn't quite ready to let that crown go. Hirsch, invoking the career of a legendary Miss America title holder, continues:
"Try to think about the names of former Miss Universe or Miss America title holders. The only name that most people remember is Vanessa Williams. The main reason is that her nude photos appeared in Penthouse Magazine and as a result her Miss America title was withdrawn from her. Today Vanessa is an accomplished actress, singer and author. She has even admitted that the incident with Penthouse helped rather than hurt her career."
Hirsch is so dedicated to securing the million-dollar deal that he's even offered Gutierrez complete control of the potential projects, adding "you will pick your partners, the type of sex you want to have and how many movies you ultimately appear in." At the time of publication, Steve Harvey has not received a similar offer of his own.
