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.
