  • It starts out as a true story and they DRAMATIZE it. My ex's girlfriend once posted me on craigslist as a prostitute with my real phone number and they contacted me. Out of curiosity I went along with it. They basically make up the story they want you to tell on the show (that a "trick" wanted to leave his wife for me and my husband didn't know that I was a hooker-they wanted me to bring my husband, another man and a woman to pretend to be his wife with me). And they don't even pay you, just pay for you to fly to Chicago and room and board. Needless to say I backed out, but it was pretty funny.

  • Oh my...I do hope it is all scripted or staged,too. Otherwise, we are all in a heap of trouble with those freaks roaming the streets of the USA.

  • Ok no joking here, a girl I went to school with ended up on Jerry Springer, she was sleeping with her step dad, now her situation was real but I'm sure they played it up and stretched the truth, but I think it's hilarious that I know someone who was on Jerry Springer!
