You might not know Steven Hirsch, but you are very familiar with his work.

The Chairman of Vivid Entertainment founded this adult film distribution company in 1984 and is the main man behind such celebrity sex tapes as those belonging to Kim Kardashian, Kendra Wilkinson and more.

Hirsch is in the news this week for a couple of reasons: first, he's greenlighted Brittney Jones Confidential, a video starring the woman who claims to have slept with Ashton Kutcher. Second, he's made another offer to Nadya Suleman.

In the following exclusive interview, Hirsch touches on these subjects and also tells us what couple would star in his dream sex tape. (Hint: look up.)

One minute. That's all it took for Derek Hough and Jennifer Grey to become favorites - with the judges and fans alike - on the premiere of Dancing With the Stars.

How does Derek like their chances? Does the perceived experience of Jennifer Grey actually help them? Can he set one of our interns up with his sister Julianne?

Just kidding, we didn't ask about that last item. But Derek was kind enough to talk all things Dancing with us this week. Here's our Q&A with the ballroom pro ...

Derek Hough with Jennifer Grey.

THG: Have you narrowed down a favorite nickname for you and Jennifer?

Derek Hough: I think we've finally settled on Baby Derek. We've gone back and forth a bit between Jenhougher and Baby Derek.

THG: How is rehearsal going? Do you two have a favorite style yet?

Derek: We've done one latin and one ballroom style so far. Jen has been completely amazing at both. Usually a celeb is stronger in one or the other but not her. We just have to work at keeping her stamina up during the faster paced dances.

Reality TV is nothing new for The Hills alum Audrina Patridge, but ballroom dancing in front of 20 million viewers is harder than being filmed shopping at the Grove.

Despite early jitters, on Monday's premiere of Dancing With the Stars, she finished in a tie for fifth with a respectable 19 points and lived to tango another week.

Erin and Maksim

Audrina was kind enough to speak exclusively with The Hollywood Gossip this week about taking part in ABC's smash hit dance competition. Here's our Q&A ...

Audrina Patridge and partner Tony Dovolani.

THG: Which type of dance is your favorite so far?

Audrina Patridge: So far, I have only learned the Cha-Cha – and it’s so fun! It’s all about your hips, and the movements are very precise! Next week we are doing the quickstep, and I’m looking forward to trying that! I also can’t wait to try the jive.

THG: What is your biggest insecurity going into a competition like this?

Audrina: Performing in front of a live audience! I have never done anything like this before – so that was a huge fear. I was so worried I would freeze up on stage, or forget my steps, or trip! When they told me and Tony that we’d be opening the show, I had a moment of panic! Thankfully, I got through that hurdle just fine and I think each week I’ll be more comfortable out there.

LaLa Vazquez has come a long way since her days as a MTV VJ.

She's now happily married to NBA star Carmelo Anthony and will soon be starring on a reality show. Vasquez spoke to THG this week about the series, another famous basketball player and more. Excerpts from the interview are below:

Street Walkers

Tell us about your reality show.
It premieres December 19 on VH1. It’s following me on my journey before I get married. You get to see what any woman goes through before a wedding, whether it's self-esteem issues or trying to lose weight, or do I really want to do it. And then actually planning with me and my friends, who happen to be celebrities like Tyrese, Kim Kardashian, Ciara, Kelly Rowland, Ludacris...  going on this journey with me and offering me advice and taking me through it. Kelly and Kim throw me a bachelorette party, and I go to Ludacris with some concerns and ask him for male perspective. You get to see all of these dynamics while planning this huge, crazy wedding.

Before American Idol viewers decided to vote for the same guitar-playing male every season (David Cook...Kris Allen... Lee DeWyze), they selected Jordin Sparks as their champion.

We've been big fans of the talented singer since since she took the Fox stage and we were lucky enough to speak with her this week, as she took time away from her summer tour. We thank Jordin for her time and we present this exclusive interview below...

Nothing But Sparks

What has the American Idol experience been like for you? Can it be compared to what you imagined it would be like?
I imagined it would be easy, just a singing competition. HA! It was a lot of work and pretty stressful. But I made friendships that will last forever and I am really happy with how it turned out.

You've sung with Chris Brown. You've sung at the Super Bowl. What has been the most memorable professional experience for you?
Well, the fact that I get to sing for my job is the best thing. Everything else, the duet, the Super Bowl, touring... it's all a bonus.

Idol has received some criticism for naming three consecutive winners that were all very similar. Any thoughts on that?
I definitely think that when the show started to allow instruments, it opened itself up to a whole bunch of people who wouldn't have auditioned before. So I'm glad those people can have the opportunity as well. But the show shouldn't receive criticism for naming winners the audience voted for.

Any thoughts on Simon leaving?
It's bittersweet. Simon was made out to be the villain. I'm going to miss him for sure... It's going to be so different without [Paula and Simon]. I wish them nothing by the best in whatever they do moving forward.

What was it like to participate in the We Are the World remake?
It was amazing for me. The original is such a classic and pretty much everyone knows it... to see all the artists there for a cause bigger than ourselves was so humbling.

This is your first-ever solo tour. Talk about your plans and hopes  for it: 
I've been so used to being the opening act. I'm adjusting to having more songs to sing, going on later, etc. But I've been having so much fun!
