The Word: Pippi Longstocking star is in a sex tape now

Tami Erin, who starred as Pippi Longstocking, is now 39.
Tami Erin, who starred as Pippi Longstocking, is now 39.

Here is a very tragic item about the adorable ginger kid best known (rather, only known) for her portrayal of lovable mischief-maker Pippi Longstocking. She’s in porn now. Of course she is.

What is it about child stardom that breeds a particular strain of adult desperation and low self-esteem? At best, these kids end up on “Celebrity Rehab” or in weird YouTube music videos dressed like Michael Jackson (I’m looking at you, Corey Feldman.) At worst, they end up in porn. No, at worst they end up dead — second worse, porn.

TMZ, who somehow manage to get their sticky fingers on every celeb sex tape before anyone else, report that they have seen the porn video, starring the now 39-year-old Tami Erin. Also according to TMZ — who always seem to revel just a bit too hard in the sex shaming of once adorable child stars — the tape is both “hardcore” (aren’t they always?) and being shopped around (aren’t they always?)

The name of this alleged hardcore porno has yet to be released but I’ve got some ideas. Nippy Longcocking? The Sadventures of Pippy Longboobs?

Anyone?
