Stripper Idol

Yes. the show is back. More interesting, is how American Idol is suing a Texas strip club.


But however will these sweet young girls pay their way through college, now?


AUSTIN, Texas – "American Idol" is suing a Texas strip club over its "Stripper Idol" contest.

FremantleMedia North America, which owns the popular TV show, says the contest is a trademark violation that could mislead the public to think the show sponsors the event, The Dallas Morning News reported in Tuesday editions. The company has filed a lawsuit in federal court to stop the weekly contest.

Managers of the Palazio Men's Club in Austin say the contest doesn't resemble the TV show, and they don't plan to end the Thursday night strip-off.

"Stripper Idol" contestants have 60 seconds to dance topless, then are ranked by audience applause to win $500.

Club managers say the contest is in its 12th week and is growing in popularity.

Imagine that.
