Yes, But Can Amy Fisher Act?

By S.T. VanAirsdale

A sticky press release from Red Light District Video showed up this morning at Reeler HQ; apparently Amy Fisher gave up shooting other people for shooting her sex life with her husband, who, during a period of estrangement from Fisher, sold the tapes to RLD for use in an upcoming celebrity porn release. Tabloid business as usual, perhaps, but an overlooked NY Post piece published Tuesday reveals the throbbing human-interest angle wedged deep inside Fisher's story:

The couple reconciled this summer, and [husband Lou] Bellera didn't tell Fisher that he'd sold the sex tape to Red Light District Video until this month.

Fisher said she was willing to forgive her husband.

"We've been together for so many years and have had so many ups and downs," she said. "... I don't want to see it. It's better for me if I just don't think about it. I'm just going to hide in my house."

Fisher said she's going to make their marriage work.

Godspeed, Amy. As we are wont to acknowledge at The Reeler, the family that circulates hardcore amateur porn at $59.95 suggested retail price together stays together, and no history of attempted murder, infidelity and epidemic public ridicule can or should interfere with a couple's true happiness. Here's hoping Fisher's peaceful exile can yield such delectable fruits as those harvested from her prolifically creative period of duress; if it worked on Faro, Lord knows it can work on Long Island.
