Pam Duarte, Big Rich Texas Star, Sues Fellow Socialites for Calling Her a Stripper and Drunk

Pam Duarte and her daughter, Hannah
If the sunny weather is inspiring you to pick up a juicy beach read, we've got the goods. They came neatly packaged in an eight-page complaint filed in Dallas County District Court by socialite and Pamela Martin Duarte, star of Big Rich Texas, Style Network's homage to Lone Star State excess.

Duarte alleges that Dena Miller, aka Mrs. Highland Park, and Bonnie Blossman Myer, a UNT biology professor (and socialite, obviously), defamed and slandered her name by calling her a stripper and a drunk -- oh, and a sociopath and a liar. Merritt Patterson, who wrote Big Rich Texas recaps for D Magazine's arts blog, is included on the original petition, but Duarte's lawyer tells us his client decided to remove her from the suit. He would not explain why, citing attorney/client privilege.

The Unfair Park are-we-getting-punked detector was on high alert when we realized that such an insider-y fight made its way into court documents, summarized by Courthouse News. We asked Duarte's lawyer, Lawrence Friedman, what seemed like an obvious question: Is there any way this is an April Fools joke? It's not, he assured us. But you'll understand why we asked when you read this excerpt from the complaint:

D. FACTUAL BACKGROUND

10. Pamela Martin Duarte ("Pam") is married to a successful husband and is the mother of two daughters. Pam is not only a devoted wife and mother, she is also a successful business woman. Pam is a global marketing executive, an accomplished fiction author, and a popular cast member of the reality television show Big Rich Texas.

11. Approximately a year ago, the Style Network came to Texas looking for successful, attractive women and their daughters to participate in the television show Big Rich Texas. Among the potential cast members that were considered for the show was Dena Miller a/k/a "Queen Bee Dena." Miller is a former L.A. rock groupie who married Vaughn Miller the grandson of real estate magnate Henry S. Miller. Miller, a narcissist who touts herself as one of the "Who's Who of Dallas' elite inner circle," thought she was a shoe-in to be on the show.

12. Unfortunately for Miller, the show's producers decided not to cast her in
the show. Miller was enraged over the fact that Big Rich Texas did not cast her. In retaliation for getting left off the show, Miller has set her sights on destroying Pam's

13. Miller and her cohorts Patterson and Blossman who are also jeaious of Pam's success have engaged in a cyber-bullying campaign to defame Pam by maliciously and falsely accusing Pam of, among other things, being: 1) a former stripper; 2) a drunk who pays her bills by servicing old men and stealing credit cards; 3) a sociopath; 4) a pathological liar; 5) a criminal; 6) a gold digger; and 7) a drunken barfly.

Much of the allegations stem from reviews of Big Rich Texas written by Patterson for D Magazine -- like this one accusing Duarte of suspicious age-reversal. She offers her thoughts on each episode and interjects quotes from some of the show's stars, along with inside bits of information from her connections to the show's cast. It's juicy stuff to a certain set, and it should be an interesting battle as reality show gripes turn so real that everyone needs to lawyer up. Make those lady-claws extra sharp at your next mani-pedi, gals.

pam is a great actor and very entertaining.  i can't believe all of the time people have spent on this feed bashing and trash talking.  the suit was for good reason and miller settled with cash and a public apology.  she also ratted out blossman and her 4000 fake accounts used to bash not only pam but leslie.  pam was given a large settlement on henegans remarks about her book as well which no one wants to print or talk about.  looks like pam was right all along about these people. bonnie i am told lied and cried to the production company about pam and used an insurance policy for her defense because she is bankrupt evicted and does not have a dime and now the production company has canceled the show.  i hope patterson keeps talking because it would be sweet to see pam finally take that fat mouth down to a place she belongs.

I'm watching this in the UK and after being disgusted at the antics of Jody Claman on RHOV, I never thought I'd see another woman who equalled her in the bullying/obnoxious stakes but Pam in BRT certainly does! Quite frankly I don't care if the pageant queen is fake or not, Pam is really showing how classless she is by attacking her publicly at every opportunity. One thing I can't stand is bullies and Pam certainly appears to be one.

For the record I wanna say that I'm not from Texas but a "Southern Gal" I am...  I was wondering why Pam wasn't in BRT this season so I took to Google to find out why, and what i found out was this ....Pam has 3 bitches that don't like her. (1) Being flaked out DR. Bonnie> she is so desperately trying to be the the botox Queen... She looks cheap and so does her daughter. (2) Some woman that didn't get on the show.. that was a groupie in the 80's, married RICH...thinks Pam was the reason she didn't get on show. (3) a writer for D magazine that plays very fukin dirty... and reported about her daughter getting in trouble when it wasn't a story line in the show!!!!  I guess Pam did feel Bullied and when you start messing with someone child,the Mother Hen comes OUT>   Like her or hate her Pam made the show. She was prettier than ANY of the women on the show and so was her daughter.

No educated atty would write such a drama filled complaint.  It is too sophmoric to be real

for someone who SUPPOSEDLY has class she has a very strange way of showing it .i have never seen a true example of a gutter snipe in all my years the woman has as much class as a dead fish and the language that utters out of her mouth my god i didnt even know women spoke like that in public i haven't even heard men lower themsekves useing it in front of a crowded room it's true what they say on 3 accounts you can dress a pig up but it's still a pig ,you can't buy class and you can't put manners and class where there isn't any.

this woman(and i use the term loosely ) is a prime example of a bully and if she thinks shes the biggest bitch in the school yard she would have a very rude awakening if she met me because in no uncertain terms would she speak and act that way towards me and get away with it she would definitely  be brought down a peg or two more like 20 she is just plain vile and her daughter  needs a touch of reality and stop letting her parents foot the bill for her college education try getting a real job and not the fanciful one mommy has provided and pay her own way like 90% of us have to i did it

Nyykimartinez is most deffenetly Pam! This person keeps saying great things about Pam which are certainly not true and the amount of typos in all the comments from this person is ridiculously funny and deffenetly Pam typos!!! Plus the name has "Martin" in it which is Pam's maiden name I guess (Pam Martin Duarte

Melissa Poe could not have sunk any lower than what she did when she chucked her drink in Lesley's face. Melissa, go get a nose job (make it shorter) because it is forever being stuck into other people's business, what? can they not fight their own battles?  Then you take your 16 year old by the hand, and walk out, leaving Bonnie with the embarrassment, of what just transpired at her opening party. You may think you belong to "high" society, but no,no,no, your past, and your actions, oh so LOW CLASS

And it's "SHOO-IN" not "Shoe-In", Ms. Minora. Watching "Big Rich Texas" is my guilty pleasure and reassures me that even rich folk have problems. It's also interesting to see how the teen aged daughters of these rich moms have  much clearer ideas of friendship, loyalty and integrity. Maybe the moms should start paying attention to the good qualities of their kids and stop being such nasty, spoiled, queen bee wanna be imitations. Of course, then you wouldn't have a show. Down with Leslie (on the show); she bears watching. I don't want to insult snakes by comparing her to them. She's not what I would call a trustworthy person.

Seriously, she is actually suing?  Then they should all ban together and sue her, because she has called almost every person on that show far worse names!

Wow, so I have taken the time to read this article and review some comments but I also watched the show which was entertaining to say the least. However, the "drunken barfly" comment is so funny! untrue I'm sure but funny nonetheless. I mean honestly when is the last time you overheard someone utilize that phrase let alone be called it? I can't say I like or dislike any person I see on a reality TV show because that would be ignorant but I can say I always thought she has something to teach. Her daughter was amazing and well put together on the show and that woman can get people to flip to her script like no other!What amazes me is how people react to the article and how the article portrayed someone else. Everyone should see why this article should have never been written and why you shouldn't rip each other apart. For one this article is biased, if your going to write about a lawsuit then give facts of the lawsuit. Someone's individual opinion does not constitute as "fact". Secondly, the author tore down and attempted to"defame" someone else while giving "factual background" that's not okay. Lastly "elite inner circle" simply means people with a while lot of money! Don't get mad just find your way to that paper trail!

Big Rich Texas is such a pathetic show. These women are no more socialites than I am. It is like watching a train wreck. No woman, and I mean NO WOMAN with class would do a show like this. It's a disgrace to Dallas.

I think the daughter is also a spoiled brat , put her to work at Mickey dee's ! And her mom did start off as a stripper and her husband meet her in the strip club and she found out he was rich , so she went after him ! This was years ago ,also she use to give lap dances for 5.00 but that was over 20 years ago .

I'm worried:  What happened to Pam's "fluffy" daughter?  Did she get cancelled?????   My thing is that if Pam can behave like she does on reality TV....  what must she be like in reality at home...  Hannah is obviously affected.  Not to mention Pam's husband and his behavior towards Bonnie - conveniently done when Bonnie's husband wasn't around....  Scarey.

Where do I start? I've been watching this show since last season, and I can truly say that Pam is a major bitch! What a ball busting bitch! I've never seen anyone so nasty, despicable, condescending, vile, vulgar, mean spirited and debase as this woman.  

She hasn't met the right woman yet.  They need to cast a woman who is just as nasty, pretentious, and vulgar as Pam, who can match her voice decibel (since this magpie can yell over everyone and be heard), who has her connections and wealth, and who is not afraid to knock her on her ass.

Pam has definitely had much work done, which is why she refused to answer the producer when she was asked. She has a nasty old woman body, nicely tucked and strapped into her clothes, she's had her nose done, lipo, chin, eye lids, lips, and much botox.  Pam can hardly move her lips when she talks, just like Bonnie.  But she probably threatened her Plastic Surgeon with a law suit if he ever told what she had done.

And Pam needs to know that her MEXICAN/CUBAN husband (lol) is messing around on her. I can't wait until she finds out that her man is boffing a much younger, cuter latino woman.  Pam has hers coming, and I hope it will be played out on tele. She is a horrible person, and I've never wished bad luck on anyone, but I do on Pam. This is a person who needs to be taken down some notches to become human again.

It's absolutely ridiculous that Pam is suing anyone because anyone that watches that show knows that all the women on the show are absolutely delusional. They all slander each other and all call each other strippers, whores, you name it. The show is trash, and by no means does it reveal "Dallas's elite." The country club that the show praises as "the most elite and best in the metroplex" is some random club in Fort Worth far away from where they all live, and I can't even believe any country club would let themselves be on a show like that. Don't get me wrong- I LOVE BRT- just because of it's trashiness.

I'M SO HAPPY THAT YOU HAVE THIS CRAZY WOMAN OFF THE SHOW.  SHE IS MEAN, AND A VERY MANIPULATIVE PERSON.  I CAN'T EVEN BELIEVE SHE HAS NO SOUL. SHE WORKS UP SOME VERY DEVIOUS ACTIONS. I HAVE ACTUALLY PRAYED FOR THIS WOMAN TO STOP HER MADNESS.  I MEAN MY GOD WHO ACTS LIKE THIS, ESPECIALLY SOMEONE IN HER POSITION THAT IS SUPPOSED TO BE A HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS WOMAN YOU WOULD THINK SHE HAS SOME CLASS AND NOT ACT LIKE A HIGH SCHOOL BULLY.  SHAME ON HER!  SHE IS A MOTHER AND ACTS THIS WAY???? IF SHE DON'T LIKE YOU FOR WHAT EVER REASON,  SHE WANTS YOU TO GO DOWN.  THERE IS NO LADIES ON THIS SHOW THAT ACTS LIKE HER.  SOME OF THE LADIES ON THE SHOW DO GOSSIP,  BUT IT'S ONLY BECAUSE  THEY DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY PAM ACTS THE WAY THAT SHE DOES. WHICH IS A VERY MEAN, MEAN  WOMAN!!!  IT'S VERY SAD. MAYBE SHE NEEDS THERAPY. SHE MIGHT HAVE SOME UNRESOLVED ISSUES AS A CHILD, WHO KNOWS... I PRAY FOR HER AND HOPE SHE GETS OUT OF THIS RAGE AGAINST PEOPLE THAT SHE MIGHT NOT LIKE.  IT'S SAD,  BUT THEN AGAIN IT'S KIND OF SCARRY. AGAIN, I HOPE SHE GETS THE HELP SHE NEEDS. HOW MUCH PRETTIER SHE WOULD BE IF SHE WOULD STOP BE SO UGLY INSIDE. THANK YOU..

Ha I am from Texas and I can't believe anybody really thinks any of those trashy women are a good representation of Texas. They are all stupid and trashy. I personally don't know anyone who acts like them. Embarrassing that these idiots are representing our great state

@Jordan Ashley and this is another one of Bonnie Blossman Myer's fake accounts since she has 4000.  This is fact.

@Jordan Ashley  yes she has plenty because Bonnie is bankrupt 2 times over and has been evicted from her home for squatting.  Check Collin County public records.  Eviction Action filed on 02/18/2009 against Subject at 5628 Willow Wood Lane, Dallas, Texas by Wells Fargo Bank.Docket Number 040EV090123501 CHAPTER 13 and Chapter 11 with Federal Tax Liens - Case 08-42354

@Winniethebaby  I agree. Much of the dialogue appears contrived and many of the 'to camera' sections appear to show the 'actors' reading from an autocue. I thought at first that the show depicted real situations in real locations but now realize much of the filming is done away from the 'Country Club' that neighbours say is not 'all that' and also that they haven't seen much filming taking place there. This being the case, the cast, director/s, producer/s could have done a good deal better. They know that reality shows are a guilty pleasure to some of us but we would like to see better storylines, and more convincing role-playing from the cast. So far I couldn't care less about any of the 'characters' portrayed and that's a pity as I love to take sides from the anonymity of my sofa. :)

@Auburn I've been wondering from the outset if, perhaps, she was a 'plant' by the producers.That would make sense as she does have problems sticking to her storyline and her son, Tyler, seems to have trouble actually playing his part at all. He mumbles his lines and can't keep a straight face. However, plant or not, the show should not appear to condone bullying by portraying a 'mob attitude' amongst the cast as they have done thus far.

@poortexas bonnie's husband is a bankrupt mooch who has over 300,000 in federal liens not to mention been evicted from his home.  pam's husband puts them all to shame.

@Rainman you are such an idiot first off pam's husband is european not mexican, second your jealous of both pam and her husband bonnie so get off and go get a job so you can pay down your federal liens.

@LYNN bonnie has bragged to leslie about being a high school bully so Bonnie stop in your tracks and get off Pam's back.  You have no show and no job right?
