Former NFL Cheerleader Who Had Sex With Her Student May Get Her Own Reality Show
Rah, Rah, Rah?
That 27-year-old former Cincinnati Bengals cheerleader and English teacher who has sex with her 17-year-old student? Her name is Sarah Jones, and she may be coming soon to a TV near you, in a reality series produced by 495 Productions.
Yes, the producers who brought us Snooki and The Situation on Jersey Shore, may now be foisting this woman on the TV viewing public.
"A lot of people are going to be outraged I imagine when they find out she's getting a show," a source tells Radar Online.
"She is basically being rewarded for breaking the law. She's totally cashing in on her crime, and I'm pretty sure that if it was a 27-year-old man that had pleaded guilty to having sex with his 17-year-old female student he wouldn't have been given a TV show!"
Jones, who was sentenced to five years of diversion, a form of probation, after admitting to her fling with former student Cody York, is now openly dating York.
The two held hands as they left court earlier this month, Radar Online reports, and Jones has already given a Dateline interview about the affair.
"This whole scandal has turned into one big payday for Sarah," Radar Online's source says. "She was boasting that she 'made bank' for her Dateline interview last week, and now she is going to be paid for appearing in her own reality TV show. It's sick.
"This sends a bad message to others," the source said about Jones' potential TV show with the producers of Jersey Shore. "It says that you can do something illegal and get away with it."
Jones is trying to profit from the scandal in another way, too, Radar reports. She has filed an $11 million defamation, libel and invasion of privacy lawsuit against Nik Richie, who runs TheDirty.com website.
Richie, who is currently appearing on the VH1 reality series Couples Therapy, posted a story about Jones called " The Dirty Bengals Cheerleader."
Seems like she might have an uphill battle proving that article was offensive, especially given all the other press coverage she's sparked; TheDaily.com, for instance, wrote a story about her earlier this month headlined "Cincinnati Bang Gal."
