"Plaintiff has suffered and continues to suffer extreme emotional distress, mental anguish, humiliation and embarrassment. Defendants knew or reasonably should have known that broadcasting an individual’s vagina and anus on national cable television would cause substantial and severe emotional distress." The image was shown as she playfully wrestled naked on a beach with her date for the VH1 program.
Last fall, the defendants did admit an editing error led to the one-second “inadvertent” exposure of the 28-year-old’s vagina and anus to viewers during the July 31 broadcast of the racy series’ third episode.
However, they also said agreements with Nizewitz made before filming started rendered the mistake essentially a non-event — despite her insistence she had verbal assurances that everything in a beach-wrestling scene would be blurred out. Nizewitz signed expressly disdain reliance on any oral representations and otherwise preclude the existence of an oral contract since they provide that modifications may only be made in writing, signed by both parties,” said the defendants’ filing. Matthew Blit of the NYC offices of Levine & Blit, PLLC represented Nizewitz.
