"Dating Naked" is a dating reality show following the success of Discovery Channel's "Naked and Afraid," but one castmember is apparently a bit miffed at just how much "naked" VH1 broadcast.

Jessie Nizewitz, 28, is a New York model and a plaintiff in a $10 million lawsuit against VH1's operator Viacom for allowing a brief crotch shot (unblurred) to be shown in an episode of "Dating Naked." According to Entertainment Weekly, Nizewitz was assured that her genitals would be blurred, and now that viewers have caught wind, she's been "humiliated on social media."

Can Nizewitz really sue over a naked shot on a naked show?

The upcoming royal wedding -- of pop culture royalty Kim Kardashian and Kanye West -- is set to take place in France, and you bet it will be très chic. But while Ukraine is getting invaded, and people across the globe live in poverty, Kimye are suffering a "crisis" of their own -- French law.

French law requires that one of the parties being married must reside "in the country for at least 40 days prior to the wedding," according to Radar Online. A source at the French Embassy explained, "These requirements cannot be waived," reports E! Online. And while France may be a nice place to get married, it's apparently not nice enough to live in for 40 days -- at least not for Kim and Kanye.

So, it looks like the most anticipated wedding of the year will be more of a big party than a wedding, technically speaking. Here's why:

George Zimmerman's Parents Sue Roseanne Barr Over Tweet

George Zimmerman's parents are suing comedian Roseanne Barr over a not-so-funny tweet that publicized their home address after their son shot and killed Trayvon Martin.

Although Barr later deleted the tweet, Robert and Gladys Zimmerman allege that she sought to "cause a lynch mob to descend" on their Florida home when she publicly posted their address, according to documents obtained by The Smoking Gun.

The Zimmermans are suing Barr for emotional distress and invasion of privacy, and want at least $15,000 in damages. What will they have to prove in order to prevail?

Woman Breaks Into Justin Bieber's Mansion, Sleeps in Bedroom

Justin Bieber has a legion of frenzied fans, but one fan took it to another level when she was arrested for breaking into the pop star's rented mansion in Sandy Springs, Georgia.

Qianying Zhao, 23, was arrested and charged with criminal trespass after police found her sleeping inside one of Bieber's bedrooms, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Zhao allegedly entered the mansion without permission, so would a burglary charge also be appropriate?

Taylor Swift's alleged stalker has been slapped with a restraining order after claiming that he'd "kill anyone who stands between them."

The man accused, Timothy Sweet, 33, claims that he and Swift are married, but TMZ reports that Sweet has been stalking her since 2011.

If Swift knew Sweet was trouble three years ago, why the restraining order now?

Nat'l Enquirer Settles Philip Seymour Hoffman 'Gay Lover' Suit

A settlement has been reached in The National Enquirer lawsuit over an article alleging Philip Seymour Hoffman and a friend were gay lovers.

As a result of the settlement, David Bar Katz, Hoffman's friend who found Hoffman dead, withdrew his suit against the tabloid, The New York Times reports.

According to Katz, the suit was never about the accusations of being gay, "the issue was lying about the drugs, that I would betray my friend by telling confidences."

Justin Bieber on Homeland Security Watch List: Report

Justin Bieber may not be landing on any best-dressed lists, but it seems he may have snagged a spot on a Homeland Security watch list, according to a new report.

The troubled 19-year-old pop star was flagged by U.S. Customs officials on Friday when he landed in New Jersey in a private plane that arrived from Canada, the website TMZ reports.

But was the extra scrutiny due to Bieber's being on a government watch list, as the website claims?

Justin Bieber's House Searched Over Egg-Tossing; Lil Za Arrested

Police obtained a warrant to search Justin Bieber's house for evidence related to the egg toss smelled heard 'round the world.

The "Confident" singer is suspected of egging his neighbor's home, causing thousands of dollars in property damage.

It's basically an egg hunt, except it's not for Easter, it's for felony vandalism.

'Sister Wives' Lawsuit: Utah Polygamy Ban Partly Struck Down

The "Sister Wives" lawsuit against Utah's polygamy ban has led a federal judge to partially strike down the law.

U.S. District Court Judge Clark Waddoups threw out a section of the anti-polygamy law prohibiting "cohabitation," while keeping intact the ban on "bigamy."

Although the law wasn't struck down in its entirety, it seems "Sister Wives" star Kody Brown and his four wives now have something to celebrate during the holidays.

Alec Baldwin's Stalker Sentenced to 210 Days in Jail

Alec Baldwin's stalker, Genevieve Sabourin, was sentenced to 180 days in jail -- plus an extra 30 days for making dramatic outbursts in court -- for a grand total of 210 days in the slammer.

Throughout the trial, Sabourin -- a Canadian actress who had dinner with Baldwin once in 2010 -- claimed that she and the "30 Rock" star were in the throes of romance for the past two years and had an intimate rendezvous or two -- in person and on the phone. Given the stalking arrest and conviction, it seems the thrill was gone (or never there), baby.

So, what happens when a spurned lovebird-turned-jailbird is sentenced for stalking?
