When Jessie Nizewitz, 28, signed up to be on VH1's new reality show "Dating Naked," it was under the assurance of the show's producers that her privates would be censored completely when the show was aired.
During the third episode of the first season, however, the show's producers failed to hold up their end of the deal. A censorship failure led to an airing of Nizewitz's exposed privates to millions of viewers, including Nizewitz's family and friends.
As the New York Post describes it, "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."
It was during this move that Nizewitz's legs spread, exposing her to the world. Following the show's airing, Nizewitz was mortified.
“I felt lied to, manipulated and used. I was horrified,” Nizewitz told The New York Post. She also mentioned that the incident brought her to tears.
“My grandma saw it. I saw her this week and she didn’t have much to say to me. She’s probably mad. My parents are just annoyed,” Nizewitz lamented.
Now, she is suing Viacom, the parent company of VH1, as well as production companies Firelight Entertainment and Lighthearted Entertainment, for $10 million. She will be represented by high profile Manhattan lawyer Matthew Blit.
