Fleiss Sues E!

Heidi Fleiss, who served time for her activities as a Hollywood madam, may be many things -- but don't call her a snitch. The Associated Press reports Fleiss filed a slander lawsuit in Los Angeles this week against E! Entertainment Television, contending that the cable channel aired an unauthorized bio of her last year that portrayed her as a police informant. The suit claims the segment on "The E! True Hollywood Story" fabricated incidents and included a dramatization that falsely depicted Fleiss wearing a wiretap and aiding police in "several narcotics cases." E! Entertainment Television, in a statement, said it had yet to see the legal claim but that it was convinced the program's content "was accurately reported."
