'Shahs of Sunset' lawsuit settled ahead of series premiere
Kathy Salem filed for $100,000 in damages in November, claiming that the reality show forced her into a "bad girl" role. She also claimed that an incident at a Hollywood hotel in July resulted in bullying, verbal and physical abuse, and even an attempt to rip her top off.
Salem claimed to be "blindsided and forced against her will to play a demeaning and humiliating role."
According to TMZ, "Shahs" producers have removed her storyline from the show, because they didn't like it in the first place -- but Salem will not be awarded any financial compensation.
"Shahs of Sunset" premieres this Sunday at 10pm/9c.
