Wife Swap Teen Sues ABC - Wants $100 Million!
Mar 27, 2010
Alicia Guastafarro (pictured), a beauty queen and teen girl that once appeared on the ABC reality TV series "Wife Swap" with her family is suing Disney and the TV show for $100 million -- charging that they intentionally ruined her life by making her look like a spoiled brat.
Salon's Mary Elizabeth Williams muses, "Want to give a recessionary American public something to hate? How about a pampered, 15-year-old blond beauty queen whose parents keep a Christmas tree up all year long because they give her a present every day, who claim their philosophy is 'Give her everything she wants, don't give her any rules. Why upset her?'"
More on her thoughts here. Angela Carson cites the Examiner.Com for this quote: "Alicia says that since the show's airing she has had to transfer schools and has gone from being on the honor roll to being a special education student."
Now 18 years old, Alicia Guastafarro explains that her mom, Karen, got $20,000 from the show, she didn't get a dime. Now she wants enough dimes to stack up to $100 million.
