Jennifer Lopez’s Production Company Was Victorious In “Hustlers” Defamation Suit From The “Real-Life Ramona”
The Hollywood Reporter says that Samantha Barbash, who inspired Jennifer Lopez‘s character Ramona in Hustlers, has lost her legal battle against the producers of the movie. Samantha sued STX, Gloria Sanchez Productions, and JLo’s Nuyorican Productions for defamation but a federal judge rejected that shit.
While on Kelly Clarkson’s talk show, Constance Wu talked about making Hustlers, which she still hasn’t seen (since she doesn’t like to live in the past) and she revealed that during her research, she actually danced at a strip club and made $600. And why do I have a feeling that most of those tips came from people giving her $10 to buy a clue after her Fresh Off The Boat tantrum.
With her Golden Globes dreams crushed and her Oscar hopes slipping down the drain, Jennifer Lopez’s decision to produce and star in Hustlers may turn out to be more trouble than it’s worth, especially considering she didn’t even get paid upfront. Maybe that’s just what she gets for trying to outshine a diamond. Back In September, Samantha Barbash aka Miss Foxita, the real life glamourpuss Jennifer’s character was based on, threatened to sue. Well the Foxita’s in the hen house now because according to TMZ, Samantha came through on her threat and has filed a $40 million lawsuit against JLo’s production company, Nuyorican Productions.
Jennifer Lopez knows this is her goddamn chance and she is not going to let it slip through her fingers. When else could she possibly become Oscar-nominated or even an Oscar-winner? For The Back-Up Plan? For Second Act? I think the fuck not. But Hustlers is her shot. And campaigning season is starting up, so JLo is doing the damn thing. Did you know that she wasn’t paid for Hustlers? She did it out of her love of art about strippers who drug and rob men.
The Real-Life Stripper Who Inspired Jennifer Lopez’s “Hustlers” Character Is Threatening To Sue A Bitch
While I loved Hustlers, the scamming stripper movie based on a New York Magazine article, there’s one person who is not into it and never will be… at least until she gets her check. Samantha Barbash, the stripper herself who inspired the story and Jennifer Lopez’s character Ramona is threatening to sue for damages! I mean, I’d feel damaged too if people thought that I was supposed to look like JLo in Hustlers!
Constance Wu drummed up a lil bit of controversy when there were rumors of her being a mega-bitch after she threw a tantrum on Twitter over Fresh Off The Boat’s renewal. Sources then said that Constance was an uber-diva on the set of Hustlers and was making enemies left, right and center. Well, listen up because Jennifer Lopez was there and she does not recall Constance being a demanding bitch once ever! This is coming from a woman who demands her rooms be fully white in her rider, but hey, let’s believe her!
