These days, anyone can make a celebrity sex tape. And sadly, it seems anybody is. The latest: Grey's Anatomy's McSteamy Eric Dane and his former Noxzema Girl wife Rebecca Gayheart have a romping good time together — and with a friend — for 12 minutes on video. Somewhere out there, Dr. Drew Pinsky is just drooling at the idea of pitching a "Sex Addict" spinoff to his Celebrity Rehab TV empire. But we nostalgically yearn for the days when celeb sex tapes featured … real celebs! Here are four worth remembering.
TANYA HARDING: The Olympic figure skater, Nancy Kerrigan knee-bashing conspirator and all-around poor sport filmed a "wedding video" with then-hubby Jeff Gillooly in the '90s. Penthouse published photos from it in 1994. Hopefully we've seen the last of Harding — dressed or undressed.
PARIS HILTON: Her tape with then-boyfriend Rick Salomon hit the Web in 2003, just a week before her reality show The Simple Life debuted. Total coincidence, right? Salomon didn't fare badly either. He earned $7 million from its sales, enough to buy a mansion in Hollywood Hills in 2005.
TOMMY LEE and PAMELA ANDERSON: The on- and off-again couple were steamed when their honeymoon tape was stolen from their home in the '90s. You'd think the Baywatch beauty would have learned her lesson after taping a similar video with Poison's Bret Michaels.
KIM KARDASHIAN: Before the 2007 release of a sex tape with then boyfriend Ray J, few people knew the name of the sexy social climber. Oh, how we miss the old days.
But please, not these
Here are four celebrity sex tapes we hope never surface. Ever.
BRITNEY SPEARS and … insert name here: While rumors have been rampant that one does exist, the pop tart has denied it. We hope so because we don't want to see her doing anything with her ex-hubbies or creepy managers.
THE HOGANS: Hulk, Linda, Nick and Brooke are already overexposed!
SIMON COWELL and PAULA ABDUL: The little hugs and kisses make you wonder if something really did exist between these two. But straight up now tell me, would you want to see them together naked? That's enough to make Bikini Girl shudder.
BRAD PITT and ANGELINA JOLIE: Wait, how did they get on this list? Since they claim they like to do the deed in lots of different places, you better keep your videocameras handy.
