View Full Version : Theres something about Miriam

Mama was looking around for something and this dreadful show from a few years ago came up in the search resluts.
It was just a hideous show and if you dont know about it - the premise was the same as other reality dating shows but the ""twist" was that Miraim was actaully transexual and the male conetstants didnt know till the end of the show. From memoery there was some huge legal problems at the end.
Do you think they could still get away with airing something so vile today?

I remember that show and thought it was dreadful and cruel on many levels.

I have a dim memory that the contestants guessed the 'secret' on the first day.
My strongest memory was the three hunks getting drunk together and suggesting 'Let's get nude!'.

ugh that's disgusting- the video. that poor woman must have been desperate to go on a show that basically stated that who she was was some kind of terrible secret.

yeah I looked her up.
She works as an escort and describes herself as having risen to fame in a 'hit tv show'.
The men involved tried to sue the production company.
She described herself, on air, as 'not a woman.'
Also she said in interviews that she jumped out the window escaping a burglar., so unless you know something I don't Indi?
She comes across as an airhead.

she was attacked with a hammer while she was being robbed. These sort of things happen to sex workers and some sex workers are trans. Its was never confirmed that it was a trans rage attack however many people still think so. Having been a T sex worker I can see how that might happen if your client doesn't know.
As far as I know she is still working and if she's smart she's change her name and started a better life.
I never liked that show, I thought it was reckless and not how most trans folk behave however no one deserves to be attacked with a hammer.
