Former Cincinnati Bengals cheerleader Sarah Jones, the same one who admittedly had sex with an underage student, has scored her own reality TV show, Radar is reporting.
To the shock of no one, it will be produced by the same production company that created Jersey Shore. Because we don’t have enough trashy reality TV? Because the Real Housewives of (insert city here) and 16 and Pregnant aren’t giving us enough mind-numbing garbage?
This is an AWFUL idea. Jones is blatantly being rewarded for committing statutory rape. What is her show going to focus on? Her “relationship” with now 18-year old Cody York? Her trying to justify what she did? Her journey of reformation?
What message is this sending? It’s bad enough we (and by “we” I mean everyone but myself) had to watch The Situation, Snookie, JWoww and whoever else get paid an ungodly amount of money to be drunk, fighting, and naked (usually at the same time), but now someone has decided to glorify this woman’s illegal activity and tie a nice pretty bow on it (hopefully with a prescription of Valtrex to go with it).
It’s extremely disconcerting that Jones is gallivanting around telling her story and making money and fame off of it. Jones’ story is a Lifetime movie waiting to happen – and maybe that’s what she’s going for, and there will always be a sucker willing to pay her for whatever reason.
Yep...if this was an adult male with a 17 year old female, there's not a chance in hell a TV show would be made.
please dont compare what she did to what sandusky did. Still not right but no where near on his level cmon.
The comparison to Sandusky is the media's response. You've got two people who abused their authority to have sexual relationships with children. One was an older male and young boys, the other a young attractive female and a young boy.
One was a monster from day 1. The other is getting a TV series.
@AndrewWelter The young boy in Jones' case was high school age...and they were not in the locker room at Penn State.
Sandusky was a predator whereas Jones and this guy/kid may have actually had feeling for each other.
What a great concept! TLC should pick it up and air it alongside Toddlers & Tiaras as part of their new "TV for Pedophiles!" programming block.
On a more serious note, it's disgusting that not even a few months removed from the conclusion of the Sandusky case, we're already being expected to be accepting ofa child rapist because "she's hot".
@AndrewWelter Are you high? A middle aged man using his status as a member of a college football coaching staff, to lure in young boys, and shacking them up in hotels and basements where they wouldn't be able to escape is on a completely different planet than a 20 something year old cheerleader, having sex with a far more than willing teenage guy. Ask the underage guy how he feels about having sex with her, and compare that to how Sanduskys victims feel, it's not even ok to compare this shit.
Sandusky ruined a lot of peoples lives, do not compare him to other people lightly, especially not to a story like this, you have serious issues with your perception of the world if this girls story comes off as equal to Sandusky in your mind.
So you're saying this isn't nearly as bad because the woman in question is a hot cheerleader? Thank you for proving my point.
The woman in question is a teacher, who abused her position as a teacher to have sex with an underage boy. There's a reason "statutory rape" exists. it's too protect underage children from being taken advantage of by people who are supposed to be caretakers.
Both Jones and Sandusky took advantage of their position to have inappropriate relationships with children who were supposedly under their care.
Your suggestion that it's okay because Jones is a hot cheerleader suggests we'd be having a different discussion if she weren't attractive. Or if, God forbid, she were a male teacher.
Jones is a teacher, who is trusted with teaching kids the ways of the world. And when your students are teens coming to terms with sexuality, one of those teachings is maturity, restraint, and responsibility.
@AndrewWelter I totally agree with you! I think it's disgusting and no amount of justification on her or anyone's part will convince me otherwise.
