Though Tyra Banks’ talk show is off the air, a mom who wasn’t notified of her daughters live ‘sex addicted confessions’ may be causing the biggest show debate to date.
The mother of a 15-year-old who appeared on a segment of Banks’ talk show that focused on teen sex addicts is suing the supermodel for $3 million, claiming that her daughter didn’t get her permission to go on the show.
The girl simply responded to an open call on the show’s website about teen sex addicts and producers flew the girl out to New York and put her up in a hotel without her mother’s knowledge or for that matter, permission [as the girl was not yet considered a legal adult at the time].
Warner Bros. Entertainment and the executive producers of the show are also included in the suit, filed in federal court Oct. 8.
The Georgia woman says the show “was undoubtedly watched by sexual deviants, perverts and pedophiles alike,” and violated her daughter’s privacy. In addiction to the $3 million, the woman is also pleading for the show to never hit television in the future.
Should the mom get the cash? Should the producers, obviously knowing the age of the teenage girl, have consulted with the parent first? Give us your thoughts!
