A young model who worked as a personal assistant for Vince Shlomi–the TV pitchman responsible for the ShamWow and Slap Chop products–alleges that he wanted her to be his “love slave,” offered her money to sleep in his bed with him and $20,000 for her eggs, according to a federal lawsuit.
Jennifer Kosinski, 23, also charges that Shlomi stalked her ex-boyfriend, used binoculars to watch her while she was on a Florida beach, and, when she sought to visit a relative stricken with cancer, he told her, “Why don’t you just see him when he’s in the grave.”
Kosinski, pictured at right, worked for Shlomi, 46, for about nine months before being terminated in April 2010. In her U.S. District Court complaint, Kosinski contends that she was canned after refusing to show a jealous Shlomi a text message that he thought was sent by a man.
The lawsuit seeks unpaid wages, and accuses Shlomi of civil battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress. The complaint does not specify monetary damages. Through an assistant, Shlomi directed a reporter to speak with his attorney about the complaint. Lawyer Joe Shull told TSG, “We’ll have no comment at this moment.”
