How Many Ashtons Are There? Ask Brittney
What kind of name is Ashton? It ain't Billy, Buddy or Mack. Imagine Sheryl Crow singing about "Ashton". Face it, Ashton is the sort of name you don't sing about. Ashton smashton.
A baby name search reveals that the name "Ashton" is uncommon. No kidding. Famous Ashtons include Sir Frederick Ashton, Ashton Hawkins and Ashton Kutcher. The first example uses Ashton as a surname, the second Ashton is a choreographer and the third Ashton is the ONE. For all intents and purposes, Kutcher could drop his last name and everybody would know who he is. Sure, there are lots Chers and Madonnas and Sades, but the public knows Cher and Madonna and Sade.
Ashton, the Demi man, has his britches in a knot. The hottie, Brittney Jones,
is BACK. She is the young woman, who claims to have had couch sex with the Iowan a few months back. They had met at a bowling alley. Demi was out of town and according to Jones, Ashton was something. Brittney told The Star, "He's a great lover,...Very considerate and sweet. And it was very special to me. I felt totally comfortable in his arms. It was tender and nice--not some random sex act." She alleges Demi-Ashton have an open arrangement. To their credit, the famoso couple have avoided the whole dust up, until now.
is in possession of a steamy and explicit sex tape of Brittney with a former boner. This is NOT a tape of Mr. Kutcher and Ms. Jones inflagranti delicto. The tape is set for release on December 14th. The problem for Mr. Kutcher is centered on the fact that the name "ASHTON" appears on the cover of the DVD.
In its release of the DVD, Vivid Entertainment boasts, "Vivid has obtained never-before-released footage that shows Brittney engaged in very explicit, uninhibited sex with a former boyfriend. Ashton's fans will undoubtedly enjoy seeing what the star himself may have experienced, in this exclusive video. We've acquired the tape and confirmed its authenticity. Brittney is obviously a beautiful young girl who could clearly seduce any man..."
Despite Mr. Kutcher's threat of legal action, Vivid plans to proceed with release and distribution. The argument that the commercial success of this DVD would be substantially enhanced by an association with the star of Punk'd seems irrefutable. In addition, the association of Ashton Kutcher with this prurient product will undoubtedly be detrimental to his reputation. Hence, Mr. Kutcher's legal action appears warranted.
Whether Jones and Kutcher were couch lovers is unknown. She says yes and he says no. The fact of whether they were lovers is germane. Arguing that they were, makes the "Ashton" on the promotional materials of the DVD relevant and not libelous. On the other hand, if the tryst never happened, Vivid and Jones would be besmirching the reputation of the star. The truth is a complete defense to libel and slander. So what is the truth?
Ashton Kutcher probably should have ignored this completely. One thing is for sure, the free exposure Kutcher engendered for the DVD is huge. If he had desisted from the legal ploy, the DVD would have been released and fizzled. What's another sex tape worth? Most people can make their own. Now the whole silly issue has been reintroduced to a shallow, interested public.
Earlier, this blog advised Ms. Jones to go to Playboy. http://www.pplume-blog.com/2010/10/britney-jones-call-playboy.html Since she had fifteen minutes, a Playboy spread would have immortalized her and would have earned her a few bucks. Moreover, a strip club career would have been insured. Vivid Entertainment is serving the same purpose as Playboy. Better yet, she can still pose and strip and even do more films. Hey, ever hear of Sasha Gray?
Too bad Ashton is such a rare name. If Kutcher were named Billy or Buddy or Mack, the inclusion of his name on Brittney Jones' sex DVD cover would be meaningless. Just how many Billys, Buddies and Macks are there? But there is only ONE Ashton. What was his mother thinking? Oh, his full name is Christopher Ashton Kutcher!
So it goes.
