    Mom sues Tyra Banks after teen appears on show

    ATLANTA — A Georgia woman is suing Tyra Banks for $3 million after she said her 15-year-old daughter appeared without her permission on an episode of Banks’ talk show about teen sex addicts.

    In a lawsuit filed Oct. 8 in federal court in Atlanta, Beverly McClendon claims the show contacted the teen on her cell phone after she responded to a request on the show’s website seeking "sex addicts." The girl was then picked up from her home in Georgia in a limo and flown to New York, where she was put up in a hotel, all without her mother’s knowledge, the lawsuit says.

    ORLY!? Where the hell is either parent while a juvenile is off traipsing around NYC?

    McClendon filed a missing person report with local police when she realized her daughter was gone.

    Must have been when the money ran out and the hangover subsided.

    The teen has never been diagnosed as a sex addict, the lawsuit says.

    Something tells me this suit ain't gonna go far. Most of those shows go to pretty significant lengths about waivers and such... especially with minors. At worst, the kid forged mom's signature, in which case the question will turn on whether it was reasonable for them to believe the signature.
