My renter of the week is Women Diary. The title says it all. Whatever you need to know about women, you'll find it here. From beauty tips to celeb gossip.
The latest in female celebrity news is Britney Spears divorce. I was so proud of that girl when she filed for divorce, but I knew he wasn't going down without a fight. According to Women Diary, K-Fed is threatening to release their alleged sex tape if Britney doesn't pay him like 16 million and hand over custody of their two kids. If it were me, I would let him sell the tape, if it does exist and apparently, I'm not the only one who thinks that.
Us Weekly magazine’s contributing editor Katrina Szish said, "If a tape does exist, I don’t think it will be damaging for Britney. We’ve seen her at her lowest point. She’s on her way back up. This would be a tape she did with her husband when they were married. Whatever may be in that tape, it really doesn’t matter anymore."
It seems Britney isn't the only one worried about a sex tape. Iranian actress Zahra Amir Ebrahimi was investigated and faces jail time after a sex tape of her and boyfriend leaked to the internet and was released on DVD. She is being investigated for a suspected breach of the country’s morality laws that prohibit sex outside marriage. Lashing is the penalty.
At least here in America a sex tape will only taint your reputation, well if you allow it to. Paris Hilton used hers to gain fame. I can't imagine having to go to jail because of something like that. One of these days celebs are going to realize the whole sex tape idea isn't a good one unless you're desperate.

Kudos to my other two bidders Haunted House Dressing (who I'm also renting space on) and Slightlydrunk.com.
Edit: It was brought to my attention thanks to a reader or someone just passing by that the actress Zahra Amir Ebrahimi wasn't the one in the sex tape. The real girl and guy in the tape have been found and are in prison.
