NEW YORK (CNN) -- More than a decade after gaining notoriety as New York's "Long Island Lolita," Amy Fisher has settled with a Los Angeles, California, production company regarding the release and distribution of a sex tape featuring her and her husband.

"It does exist, people are looking at it, so I agreed to -- not endorse it -- but [I] will discuss it," Fisher said at a news conference Friday.

Under the terms of the settlement with the Red Light District production company, Fisher agreed to an undisclosed sum of money and a promotional appearance at a New York City nightclub.

She described how her husband, Louis Bellera, sold the sex tape during an acrimonious divorce, and she denied being involved in its initial release.

The couple has since reconciled.

"I love my husband and I've done a lot of things, too," Fisher said. "I know he's very sorry." Video Watch Fisher say she will hold her head high »

Fisher, 33, drew mass media attention as a teenager in 1992 when an affair with Joey Buttafuocco ended with her shooting his wife, leaving her paralyzed.
