Wife Swap Lawsuit

A teenage girl portrayed as a spoiled out-of-touch teen beauty queen on ABC's "Wife Swap" filed a $100 million lawsuit against the network, alleging the show is a charade.

Really? Who would have imagined?

Obviously, this is the dictionary definition of a frivolous lawsuit on so many different levels. It is obviously easy to blame the girl who said on the show that she feels "sorry for people that are not gorgeous people." But, really, why was this suit filed? Dollars to donuts, it was because a lawyer wanted to get his/her name in the paper. In terms of public relations for lawyers, this is the kind of stuff that balances out in the public's mind thousands of hours of charitable efforts and other good works that lawyers do.
