Sued! Ryan Seacrest Slapped With Lawsuit From Persian Reality Show Fight

| Filed under: Legal MattersAmerican IdolRyan SeacrestReality TV


Ryan Seacrest is venturing out into reality TV outside of American Idol.

And he might be paying for it later.

Seacrest's new show, Shahs of Sunset, is set to be the next Jersey Shore.

But instead of Jersey, it's L.A. and instead of Italians, it's Persians.

One woman is suing Seacrest for forcing her to play a humiliating role as the "bad girl" on the show. Reports say Kathy Salem is suing Seacrest, his production team and Bravo for $100,000.

Salem claims that cast members were verbally abused for talking to an allegedly engaged man and a cup of water was thrown her face. She even said one tried to rip her top off!


The show is set to air in February but Salem wants a judge to force Seacrest to pull her footage.

Do U think this will be a good show?

UPDATE: We have just received this statement from a Bravo Spokesperson: "Bravo has not seen a copy of the complaint, and thus we cannot comment."

    Oh great. Now Ryan Seacrest is trying to make an entire race of people look bad. Seriously, wasn't Jersey Shore bad enough for Italians? Is it really necessary to show how "bad" Persians can be? Why doesn't Seacrest and Andy Cohen get together and pick a race that is even richer and more affluent than Persians in LA. A group of naughty Jewish kids perhaps?
