Janice Dickinson says Ryan Seacrest’s production company made her look like a villain on an episode of Shahs of Sunset – an episode she claims she never even agreed to be on! Now RadarOnline.com has learned the former supermodel is suing the company and NBC Universal to collect on her appearance.
According to court documents obtained by Radar, Dickinson, 63, agreed to be a part of a fashion show for her friend and designer Erik Rosette and his fashion label, Mister Triple X. But she contends Rosette, working with the reality show behind her back, set out purposely to make her look like the bad guy for a plot on that particular episode.
Dickinson’s complaint states that a member of Rosette’s staff, “directed Dickinson to a rack of ‘Mister Triple X’ label clothing for her to select an outfit to model in the runway show.”
From that rack, the staff member “strongly encouraged” Dickinson to pick out a silver romper, and “otherwise intentionally manipulated Dickinson into choosing the romper,” she claims in court docs.
But when the episode aired, Dickinson says it included a “false controversy” in which it appeared that Dickinson had “intentionally ‘stolen’ or essentially bullied her way into wearing an outfit which had purported previously selected for or by Golnesa Gharachedaghi.”
She also slammed the reality show, calling it “largely or entirely scripted” and said the intent of the episode is to portray her as, “an arrogant, unprofessional and purportedly past-her-prime celebrity attempting to push into Gharachedaghi’s fashion show experience.”
Dickinson is seeking damages, all profits they made from the episode, as well as attorneys’ fee
