    A woman who sued MTV over her protrayal in a reality show will get her day in court.

    The Washington Postreported that a D.C. judge has allowed Golzar Amirmotazedi's lawsuit to go forward.

    Amirmotazedi, who calls herself a hair stylist, is suing the producers of the Viacom and MTV,  for $5 million.   She said her appearance on the "Real World D.C." in 2007 caused her emotional distress.

    In her single appearance, the show's cast members said she was "weird" when she stumbled back to the house with them, following a night of heavy drinking.

    Amirmotazedi said she was booted out of the house when she refused to have sex with a cast member, and was later made fun of.  Cast members called her a "lost dog."

    According to the Post, her lawyer is arguing that the hair stylist was too inebriated to understand the legal waiver she signed allowing her image to be used on the show.
