Calling Jess Nizewitz a “former model and sometime actress who wanted a shot at fame,” Viacom says Nizewitz signed “not one but three” agreements expressly agreeing to be filmed fully nude, with producers having sole discretion on how the footage was edited. What’s more, stated Viacom, Nizewitz waived her right to sue and is now liable for attorneys fee.
