A “Dating Naked” contestant says in a lawsuit that VH1 took that whole naked thing a little too far when it broadcast an uncensored crotch shot of her on the show.
Jessie Nizewitz, 28, says producers promised her that her private parts would be blurred out during the May production, which was broadcast on July 31.
“I felt lied to, manipulated and used. I was horrified,” Nizewitz told The New York Post.
Nizewitz’s lawsuit was filed against Viacom, which operates VH1, and two production companies, Firelight Entertainment and Lighthearted Entertainment.
She says that she has been ridiculed on social media since the broadcast.
