Nikki Sixx’ Ex Feels Overexposed After TSA Scan
December 8, 2010
Donna D’Errico, the former “Baywatch” star, Playboy Playmate and ex-wife of Motley Crue’s Nikki Sixx, says she was not ethnically, but rather, um, bodaciously profiled by Transportation Security Administration screeners at Los Angeles International Airport.
D’Errico, who was traveling with her 17-year-old son, tells AOL News that she was pulled out of line for “an extra search,” and when she questioned the agent, he told her, “Because you caught my eye, and they” — indicating the other passengers — “didn’t.”
“I’m not sure whether they had recognized me or not,” she admitted. “If they did, they didn’t say anything. However, it is my personal belief that they pulled me aside because they thought I was attractive.” She had to go through the TSA’s controversial body scan process, though she says she was not given a choice as to whether she would be scanned or given a pat-down search, which is the other option.
“After the search, I noticed that the male TSA agent who had pulled me out of line was smiling and whispering with two other TSA agents and glancing at me. I was outraged.”
A TSA spokesman insists that passengers are “selected at random and not because they’re celebrities,” and that agents who see the body scans are in a closed room, with no communication with the agents outside.
On a side note: Is the TSA spawning an entirely new fetish category — body scan porn? D’Errico’s name popped up on Google trends this morning, and when we clicked, we saw someone asking whether D’Errico’s body scans are available online. Here’s what I don’t understand: Why would someone want to view an X-ray of an admittedly shapely former “Baywatch” star when actual nude photos of D’Errico are available just clicks away (well, you do have to turn your Google SafeSearch off)?
AOL News asked why she was bothered by the prospect of two men ogling her body scan when she’s already appeared nude or in “Baywatch”‘s skimpy red swimsuits
“I must have overlooked the clause in both my Playboy and ‘Baywatch’ contracts stating that once appearing in that magazine, or on that show, I would forever be subject to being seen naked live and in person by anyone, at anytime, under any conditions, whether I agree to it or not, and for free,” she says.
“I posed for Playboy 15 years ago. I was on ‘Baywatch’ 13 years ago. Both of those were controlled environments, with proper lighting, makeup, etc., and were jobs. I contractually agreed to do both of those jobs. I could have stopped or changed my mind at any time. None of those conditions are present when TSA decides for you that you will consent to being scanned or felt up, or you simply won’t be allowed your constitutional right to travel from one place to another freely.”
