Miss Manners Sues Borat
An Alabama etiquette expert has become the latest unsuspecting film star to sue Sacha Baron Cohen for the way she was portrayed in hit comedy Borat: CULTURAL LEARNINGS OF AMERICA FOR MAKE BENEFIT GLORIOUS NATION OF KAZAKHSTAN. Cathy Martin is suing the British funnyman for fraud, emotional distress and invasion of privacy. Martin agreed to take part in a dinner party scene at her home in the film. In the movie, Baron Cohen's oddball journalist character pokes fun at the manners teacher and her friends. She claims that although she signed an agreement to appear in the film, she had no idea she'd become an object of ridicule.
