Sarah Jones was a member Cincinnati Bengals cheerleading squad. In October 2009, Bengals players called her saying they saw a posting on TheDirty.com claiming she had been seen around town with a Cincinnati Bengals player and had sex with the entire Bengals football team.

“The picture is taken out of context because it’s taken at a charity event we did for Toys for Tots,” Jones said. She contacted the site and begged them to take it down. Then in December, she saw another posting claiming she had STDs and had sex in her classroom.

“These kids Google me. They see things. If it’s on the Internet, it’s real to them. They believe it,” Jones said. Parents told Jones they did not want their children in her class.

This past August, news broke that Jones won an $11 million libel lawsuit against a the website according to Cincinnati.com. She received $1 million in compensatory damages and 10 million for punitive damages with an annual interest rate of .25 percent. So she received financial compensation for her troubles; now she gets psychological retribution.

For the first time, Jones and the man responsible for TheDirty.com, Nik Richie, come face to face on “Anderson.”

“He didn’t post me on there. But it’s his website. The fact that someone can sleep at night and have a website that ruins people’s lives, I didn’t ask for this. I’m not a celebrity… I’m 26 years old… and the fact that he can do this to people, it’s completely delusional to me.”
