Eric Dane, Rebecca Gayheart nude tape 'done in good fun, ' Kari Ann Peniche says
A 12-minute video recorded two years ago showing Grey's Anatomy star Eric Dane, 36, and his former Noxzema Girl wife Rebecca Gayheart, 38, romping naked with former Miss Teen USA Kari Ann Peniche is no big deal, the beauty princess' manager tells Us. We guess it's not as McSteamy as Gawker wanted us to believe.
Saying it "was all done in good fun," David Weintraub denies anything wrong is being done in the video, which was posted Monday on Gawker and shows the three obviously not-sober folks stripping down and passing around a camera while they discuss important things like what their porn names would be.
"This is not a sex tape," Weintraub says. "It's guys having fun, hanging out together. There is no sex involved in this."
Peniche, 25, is "sorry that somebody has stolen these things and put them out," Weintraub says. "That's the overall of it. Those are good friends of hers. It was in good fun and, unfortunately, now it's public record."
Dane's lawyer Marty Singer said the tape is "a private, consensual moment involving a married couple, shot several years ago, which was never intended to be seen by the public. Although the participants are nude, the tape is not a 'sex tape.' "
Well, the hits on Gawker aren't suffering, either way. We can't wait to see more of Kari, however, since she has since been kicked off the next season of Celebrity Rehab, where Dr. Drew Pinsky was treating her for sex addiction, for throwing vases at the cast and crew and was stealing from roommate Mindy McCready.
