A contestant on VH1's Dating Naked is suing Viacom, VH1 and two production companies for actually showing her naked body on television.
Young Jessie Nizewitz claims that producers promised that all her unmentionables would be blurred out. When the episode aired, however, there was seemingly some sort of mix up and her private parts/crotch/vagina was exposed. According to the New York Post, Nizewitz is asking for a "huge apology" and $10 million.
Jessie Nizewitz, 28, says she was repeatedly promised by the producers that her private parts would be "blurred out" during the show's third episode in May.
So she stripped down to her birthday suit with wet beach sand covering parts of her body and performed a WWE-style wrestling move on her date while the producers egged her on, according to the $10 million suit filed in Manhattan by her high- powered lawyer, Matthew Blit.
I mean, yeah, they promised you that and all, but I dunno girl. It kinda seems like an occupational hazard of appearing on a show called Dating Naked.
Plus, it was likely was a mistake considering VH1 can't really show naked people on cable television and I can't imagine in any future airings, her crotch won't be blurred out.
All of this is my way of saying, does she really deserve $10 million? Nizewitz who, the New York Post stealthily, rather hilariously and largely unnecessarily points out, used to work with a convicted pedophile, claims she was mortified and that her parents are annoyed with her.
But perhaps the most egregious outcome of this situation is that Jessie Nizewitz missed out on an opportunity to snag a prime Jewish husband.
She added that the show cost her a "budding relationship" with a man she had been seeing for a month.
"He never called me again after the show aired. I would have hoped we could have had a long-term relationship. He was employed, Jewish, in his 30s and that's pretty much ideal," Nizewitz said.
Who wants to be the one to tell her it was most likely her decision to appear on the show in the first place that scared him off?
Good luck, I guess, with the lawsuit, Jessie. And let this be a lesson to all those who dream six to nine months of reality TV-fueled notoriety, do not go on a show called Dating Naked if you value your dignity.
