Vivid founder/co-chairman Steven Hirsch said he remains confident the studio has all appropriate legal clearances to distribute the video, ''Mindy McCready, Baseball Mistress,'' in which she talks candidly about the sexual performances of Yankees and Red Sox pitching great Roger Clemens and other celebrities she's been involved with over the years. The video had been scheduled to go on sale April 19th.
''We've decided to take a little extra time to study all of our documentation and other clearances before we proceed,'' Mr. Hirsch said. ''I want a chance to review the correspondence from Mindy's attorney, Adam Dread, and to prepare a proper response to the letter he has sent to us.''
McCready was one of the nine cast members in the latest season of VH1's Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew. She discussed some of her relationship with Clemens on the show and she performed the title single from her recently released album, ''Mindy McCready I'm Still Here,'' on the last episode. The album is her first in eight years for the singer/songwriter best known for placing 12 singles on the Billboard country music charts and for her hits ''Ten Thousand Angels'' and ''Guys Do it All the Time.''
