Porn executive: No pressure in offer to buy 'Octomom' Nadya Suleman's home

Linking LAMORE OCTOMOM HOME DRAMA: Octuplets mom Nadya Suleman has rejected numerous offers from various adult entertainment companies that wanted to do business with her. But with her La Habra house on the brink of foreclosure, the Associated Press says it's possible a porn industry executive might purchase the home so that she and her children can continue to live there:

Vivid Entertainment co-found Steve Hirsch told the Associated Press on Tuesday that he's not trying to pressure Suleman into porn, but he would use her housing woes to start a conversation that brings her to work for Vivid. "There'd be no pressure on her. We're not looking to foreclose on the note, but if nothing else it would give us opportunity to meet with her," Hirsch said. "She's made it clear she doesn't want to do an adult movie. Maybe there are other things we could do that she would be interested in."

AND THE WINNER IS... Curbed L.A. names Hollywood the L.A. Neighborhood of the Year. Why? "The neighborhood is now on its second or third recent renaissance, evidenced by the planned Emerson College project; the new Trader Joe's; Metro improvements around the Red Line; well-received restaurants like Cleo; some interesting adaptive reuse plans that hopefully will actually happen."
