There’s a realtor in Georgia who now has TWO big problems: First, she has a very unfortunate name . . . and second, she just had her lawsuit against ELLEN DEGENERES over that name dismissed. Here’s the deal:
Her name is pronounced “TeeTee Pierce”. But “TeeTee” is spelled “T-I-T-I”. So if you pronounce it the way it looks, it becomes dirty . . . and HILARIOUS.
Well, somebody sent a picture of one of her signs to Ellen, and of course she made a joke about it. So Pierce sued her for emotional distress and all that stuff.
But a judge just threw out the case, saying, quote, “The letter ‘i’ in the English language can be pronounced in several ways. While Titi chooses to pronounce her name with ‘e’, there is nothing demonstrably false in pronouncing it with ‘I’ as DeGeneres did.”
