The History Channel's Pawn Stars is being sued for a whopping $5 million!
The talent agency Venture IAB Inc. signed Richard "Rick" Harrison, Richard "The Old Man" Harrison, Richard "Big Hoss" Harrison, and Austin "Chumlee" Russell as clients in 2007 and again in 2009.
According to the talent agency, they played a part in the deal that led to Pawn Stars, which premiered July 19, 2009 on History.
However, just six months later, the stars of Pawn Stars terminated their contracts with Venture IAB after alegedly being influenced by two Pawn Stars execs, Mary Donahue and Nancy Dubuc, to sign with a friend of theirs, Michael Camacho.
The "joke" was part of an entirely too long segment about crotch juice and crotch liners. While I thoroughly enjoyed learning about Lilly's line of sexy swimsuits, hearing her design ideas, and seeing a model try one on, I could have totally done without the cutesy crotch juice explanations. Swimsuits have crotch liners… we know why… end of story.
While looking through a rack of suits, Lilly caught site of a wrinkled (Actually soiled? I have no idea.) crotch liner. Lilly handed the suit to her assistant, Jill, and said, "There's crotch juice!" Joking around, Jill removed the liner with a tissue and held it over Lilly's computer.
Lilly shrieked, "Don't put that on my computer! There might be AIDS on there!"
The "joke" was inappropriate and didn't add anything to the story, so I chose not to include it in the recap of the episode. Following the show, fans bombarded Bravo's website, Twitter, Facebook, and other online forums, voicing their disgust. As a result of the negative backlash, Lilly has issued an apology for the inappropriate comment.
The next morning, the ladies discuss the previous night's events, mimosas in hand. While the details of Bonnie and Leslie's blow up are crystal clear, the rest of the night is kind of a blur. Melissa Poe asks, "Did we kiss somebody last night?" Oh yes, she, Connie Dieb, and Cindy Davis most certainly did make out with complete strangers, albeit hot ones. Yay for alcohol!
Melissa explains that nobody went after Leslie the night before, but they're all anxious to hear her spin on side of the story now. The ladies set up camp in the living room and wait for Melissa to bring her downstairs. Turns out – Leslie is nowhere to be found.
Ah, there she is, back in Texas.Thankfully, neither Kalyn Braun nor Tyler has a job, so Leslie knows to look for them by the pool. "You guys are not gonna believe what happened to me," Leslie cries. "Bonnie's turned against me." Leslie adds, "I'm the victim! You'd think she would have been remorseful for what her husband did." Moving on, Kalyn asks forLeslie's permission to date Paul. Leslie is like,the old guy? (Pot, Kettle. Kettle, Pot.) The 28-year-old nerd? Kalyn asks Leslie to at least meet Paul before she passes judgment. Leslie agrees.
At the Zoom Room, a social club for L.A.'s richest dogs, GG and Mercedes "MJ" Javiddiscuss the disastrous dinner party. GG dismisses anything negative or raunchy that MJ has to say about her behavior the night before. GG claims she doesn't remember anything that happened, including her new guy's hand up her skirt at the dinner table, but she remembers every single word Asa said. That's some tricky whiskey. Taking the high road,GG says she should have toasted to Asa's non-lipoed, blubber ass.
Moving on, over dinner, Asa tells her parents that she has moved back into her house because she's broke. Without missing a beat, Asa's mom tells her to get a job. Asa says, "Are you serious right now? I'm a Persian Pop Priestess. That's my job." Mom asks, "What the hell is that?" I'd like to know, too.
Asa laments, "If you're not a lawyer, doctor, or engineer, you're a slave in my parents' eyes." Asa's mom begs Asa to go back to school, to get her PhD. Asa says she has three PhDs – Persian. Pop. Priestess. Needless to say, mom isn't impressed with her credentials.

The New York Post has reported that Cameron is no longer working with Rachel, adding, "Some sources snipe that Zoe's been too busy building her own empire, with clothes, shoes, bags and accessories bearing her name, and that she's got less time for styling her celeb clients."
