EXCLUSIVE: Carnie Wilson wants some extra money for the hours spent toiling on her new reality show. The Wilson Phillips songstress today sued Game Show Network seeking $277,500 in additional pay for her services on the unfortunately titled GSN series "Unstapled."
According to the suit, Wilson was set to receive $120,000 for six weeks of episodes that would be filmed four days a week for six hours a day (a total of 24 days). The show ended up taking much longer, she says, requiring 53 days of shooting and much longer hours.
"Accordingly, at the rate of $5,000 per day, which is the daily rate of said contract, Defendant GSN owes to [Wilson] the additional amount of $277,500 with legal interest thereon from the final day of shooting," the complaint argues.
A GSN spokesperson says: "We are not aware of any lawsuit by Carnie Wilson against GSN."
Wilson is repped by Jay Coggan, David Tarlow and Jessica Trotter at Coggan & Tarlow.
