When Kim Kardashian bent over for Ray J on tape, it didn't hurt her family. In fact, that act eventually led to a reality show and global fame for a group of individuals no one would ever have heard of if Kim didn't take one for her siblings.
Similarly, while she may be crying a river in interviews, Kendra Wilkinson's publicized intercourse will pad her and her husband's bank account by nine figures. Hard to sympathize with her family for that decision.
However, Danielle Staub is a 47-year old mother of two and fellow Real Housewife of New Jersey Jacqueline Laurita can't believe Danielle would expose her children to such filth as these photos and their affiliated video.
Laurita Tweeted yesterday: "Heard from a VERY reliable source that D (Danielle) released her OWN sex tape. Heard it's disgusting. Such disregard 4 her kids. I feel horrible 4 them."
So do we. But to give Staub the tiniest shred of credit: at least she is aware the tape will be released on June 14 and hasn't pretended like this is some horrible, unwanted violation of her privacy.
She's an irresponsible mother and troubled human being that clearly played a role in the production and distribution of this tape - but, hey, at least she admits it.
