CHATSWORTH, Calif. - Red Light District has acquired the rights to distribute a hardcore sex video featuring Joey Buttafuoco from porn director Rob Spallone. The footage will be released Feb. 6 under the title Joey Buttafuoco: Caught On Tape.
According to Red Light CEO David Joseph, Buttafuoco was videotaped having sex with his second wife, Evanka, while attending a party at Spallone’s home last year. Joseph said the couple snuck off during the party "to talk and have sex," unaware that Spallone had hidden three cameras in the bedroom to catch "late-night action" from the porn stars in attendance.
“Spallone didn’t know that he had captured Joey and Evanka until a couple of weeks later when he completed reviewing the footage from the party," said Joseph. “He was so surprised to find Joey and Evanka on the tapes. When he realized what he had, he came to Red Light District to discuss distribution. He knows we are the best in town to work with on these types of deals.”
Buttafuoco attained tabloid celebrity status in the early '90s over his affair with then-underage Amy Fisher, who spent seven years in prison for shooting of Buttafuoco's wife, Mary Jo. Buttafuoco pleaded guilty to stautory rape and served four months in jail.
The affair between married auto repair shop owner Joey and 17-year-old "Long Island Lolita" Amy inspired two made-for-TV movies, and the Buttafuocos became frequent guests on Howard Stern's radio show. Joey pleaded no contest to soliciting a prostitute in 1995, and has since returned to jail twice on charges of insurance fraud and violating his probation. Red Light's press release indicates the sex tape was shot shortly after Buttafuoco's April 2007 release from Los Angeles County Jail.
Joey Buttafuoco: Caught On Tape follows Red Light's recent success with Amy Fisher: Caught On Tape, which the company bought from Fisher's husband, Lou Bellera, while the couple was going through a divorce in May 2007. Evanka Buttafuoco filed for a divorce at the same time, amid tabloid reports that Joey and Amy had rekindled their relationship and were developing a reality show with producer David Krieff. Both couples have since reconciled.
Fisher and Bellera plan to promote their sex tape for Red Light this week at the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas. Fisher discussed the tape last week in a series of television interviews that included "Good Morning America," "Larry King Live" and "The Insider."
