Former â€œBaywatchâ€ Donna Dâ€™Errico is outraged over TSA agents full body scan at Los Angeles International Airport. Dâ€™Errico, who is also famous for her 1995 Playboy Playmate of the Month centerfold layout, claims she was forced to undergo a full body scan because she is an attractive woman. Although you may want to laugh at such an outlandish claim, there may be some truth to Dâ€™Erricoâ€™s allegations, if her description of the TSA agents behavior is to be believed.
CBS News reports, â€œIt is my personal belief that they pulled me aside because they thought I was attractive.â€ She added, â€œMy boyfriend looks much more like a terrorist than either I or my son do, and he went through security with no problems.â€ The boyfriend in question is none other than Roy J. Bank, the president of Merv Griffin Entertainment.
Dâ€™Errico said she asked the agent why she was being targeted for a full body scan, and the agent replied, â€œbecause you caught my eye.â€ According to TSA spokeswoman Nico Melendez, â€œpassengers are selected at random and not because theyâ€™re celebrities.â€ Dâ€™Errico did not say she was chosen because she was a celebrity, but, because the all male agents were drawn to her attractive looks.
Donna Dâ€™Errico further said, â€œafter the search, I noticed that the male TSA agent who had pulled me out of line was smiling and whispering with two other TSA agents and glancing at me. I was outraged.â€
The actress also said she was never told that she had the option of being physically searched instead. A physical search would have been conducted by a female agent, and a revealing body scan would not have been viewed by the male agents. Kind of makes you wonder just exactly what the TSA agent was really searching for, and whether the agency has a policy in place that would protect passengers from any funny business.
If the agent behaved in such an unprofessional manner than Donna Dâ€™Errico should, at the very least, receive an apology from TSA officials. TSA has been given carte blanche in their handling of airline passengers, and it would not be shocking to find a select few taking advantage of their official capacity.
So, what do you think of Donna Dâ€™ Erricoâ€™s claims of being picked for a very revealing body scan due to her good looks? It could happen â€¦
