Why a 'Jersey Shore' Star Wants to Sue MTV -- and Why Gloria Allred Won't Take the Case TMZ

A celebrity attorney who’s a familiar face in the media has turned down a request from former “Jersey Shore” star Angelina Pivarnick to pick up Pivarnick as a client for a potential lawsuit against MTV. TMZ.com reports that attorney Gloria Allred turned down the request from Pivarnick.

Pivarnick contacted Allred about suing MTV, with the reality TV star claiming she has been blacklisted from other jobs and alleging it's the network's fault. She feels the network edited her appearances on "Jersey Shore" to make her look bad and has prevented her from taking part in MTV events, the story notes.

The reality star reportedly is seeking to file a defamation lawsuit and contacted Allred first. Allred's office reportedly sent Pivarnick a letter saying her workload is too large to fit her in.

The piece adds: “The famous attorney -- who has taken on high-profile clients like Scary Spice, Rachel Uchitel and Anthony Weiner's mistress -- wanted no part of her case.” The report implies that Pivarnick may not be famous enough to make Allred’s client list.
