Donna D’Errico, a former Playboy model and star of the hit TV drama Baywatch has alleged that she was singled out by security at the Los Angeles airport for a nude security scan.
Donna D’Errico, 42, was in the TV show, famous for its red-suited female lifeguards, from 1996 to 1998. She has also posed nude in Playboy.
She was angry at the way agents from US air security body TSA chose her for the screening procedure at Los Angeles International Airport . “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,” she said. “I was outraged.”
D’Errico went on: “I’m not sure whether they had recognised me or not. If they did, they didn’t say anything. However, it is my personal belief that they pulled me aside because they thought I was attractive.”
When D’Errico asked the security guard why she had been selected, he apparently responded: “Because you caught my eye, and they” – pointing to the other passengers – “didn’t” .
She added that the agent never gave her the option of a pat-down search, which is the usual procedure.
A spokesman for the TSA denied any inappropriate behaviour by their staff towards D’Errico, who was travelling with her boyfriend and her 17-year-old son.
