Since the kitchen appliance bartering system isn't always the most gainful way to run a business, the radio station was left with a significant amount of fund-raising to...

Celebrity Sex Tapes We
As a celebrity, the release of a sex tape is essentially a roll of the dice. You can either win big or lose your house on the gamble. A popular sex tape can turn B and C listers into A listers just like Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee. A great sex tape can also turn a little bit of fame into a lot of fame (see Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian).

However, if the sex tape is bad or if the celebrity in the sex tape comes across as odd and/or creepy (ahem, Dustin Diamond), they can make everyone wish that they had never heard of that celebrity and never enjoyed any of their prior work. It c...
