Actress Lucy DeCoutere -- who lost her case against ex-CBC host Jian Ghomeshi -- recently quit the show "Trailer Park Boys" after one of the actors was accused of assault.
(Without much self-awareness, Lucy self-righteously tweeted that she makes it a point to cut violent men out of her life...)
Lucy may have lost the Ghomeshi case, and been criticized by the judge, but the whole case certainly got her a lot of new Twitter followers.
Today, being a "victim" pays. Look at Mattress Girl.
And even if they can't keep their "abuse" stories straight, it's amazing how much attention they'll get.
