I don’t watch Big Rich Texas. I’m told it’s a thing. So I guess this lawsuit will get some attention. It was filed two days ago by Pamela Martin-Duarte, who is on the Style Network reality show. The defendants are Dena Miller (aka Mrs. Highland Park), Bonnie Myer (who is also on the show), and Merritt Patterson (who used to write recaps of the show for our FrontRow blog). Here’s how Courthouse News describes the suit:
Business disparagement, defamation and tortious interference actions where the plaintiff says defendant Miller is jealous that she was not cast by the reality show Big Rich Texas. She says the defendants have since engaged in a cyber-bullying campaign by falsely accusing the plaintiff of being a former stripper, drunk, sociopath, pathological liar, criminal, gold-digger and “drunken barfly” who “pays her bills by servicing old men and stealing credit cards.” She says the defendants have also contacted members of the media, Style Network and Fly on the Wall producers to damage her reputation.
UPDATE: Merritt Patterson confirms that she is no longer part of the lawsuit, having been dropped as a defendant by Pamela Martin-Duarte’s attorney.
