Gregg Hughes, the “Opie” of Opie and Anthony fame, is in the news. It seems a sex tape has surfaced featuring his fiancee and MTV personaily Bam Margera. The NY Post’s Page 6 reports:

April 23, 2008 — THE sex-mad “Opie & Anthony” radio show is facing its own carnal comeuppance. Gregg “Opie” Hughes is said to be livid over an X-rated romp starring his stunning blond fiancée, known by her first name, Lindsay, and MTV wildman Bam Margera. A disgruntled ex-employee of the radio duo recently acquired rights to the video from Margera and it’s soon to be released on a pay-for-play Web site, reports Steppin’ Out’s Chaunce Hayden. “They’re doing the nasty – and I mean nasty,” Hayden says. “Hughes is taking legal action to prevent its distribution. Apparently, he’s so distraught, he’s banned the name ‘Bam’ from being mentioned on the show.” Hayden says Lindsay was living in Philadelphia, Margera’s stomping grounds, when she met him and made the tape “to gain some exposure.” This was before Lindsay began dating Hughes. Calls to reps for Margera and Hughes were not returned.

I guess sex-stunts like the one Opie & Anthony initiated where listeners had sex in Saint Patrick’s Cathedral are only funny when your fiancee isn’t involved.
