NEW YORK (CAP) - Scott Prouty, the man who recently admitted to filming presidential candidate Mitt Romney's "47% speech," told MSNBC this week that this isn't the first time he's taped an important event surreptitiously.
Prouty told Ed Schultz that he made another secret video in 2003 that wound up making a splash with the general public.
"I felt like it was my civic duty," said Prouty, who was bartendering a private party at socialite Kim Kardashian's home when he was invited into her bedroom to mix drinks for Kardashian and her then-boyfriend, singer Ray J. When things turned intimate between the couple, Prouty turned on a Sony DCR-VX2000 camcorder he just happened to have behind the bar.
"I didn't plan to film them," said Prouty, adding however that he was turned off by Kardashian from the moment she entered the bedroom and demanded a Midori lemonade cocktail. She also declined to pose for pictures with Prouty or the other workers in her bedroom, including a waitress, a busboy, a masseuse and her private fluffing staff.
"I couldn't help but compare her to Bill Clinton, who always stopped to pose for pictures with the staff before having sex with somebody, and also after, and sometimes during," said Prouty.
Prouty was also apparently involved in the filming of the Carrie Prejean, John Edwards, Benazir Bhutto and Bruno Kirby sex tapes, although not always as the filmer. "For at least two of those I was the fluffer," he recalled. "Maybe three."
Kardashian had no comment about Prouty's admission, although she has previously decried the leak of the tape, saying that she had no desire for anyone to see her naked except for her boyfriends, husbands and readers of The Economist.
