Girls of MU Calendar Drawing Controversy

SEPTEMBER 14, 2006 - Posted at 8:00 a.m. CDT

 

COLUMBIA, MO - A University of Missouri student says she and several classmates were misled about the nature of photos he would take of them for the Girls of MU calendar.

Student Lucy Herman, 18, said she and 13 other women from the school were told by the calendar's producer that they'd be wearing bikinis for the pictures.  But after the group arrived in the Florida Keys, Herman said she and the others were asked to wear less than entire bikinis.

She said she and another woman left the photo shoot three days early.

A spokesman for the Missouri Attorney General's office says one of the women contacted the office, but he would not share information on her complaint.

The man developing the calendar is 21-year-old MU student Tom Houlehan, who says all the photos he took were "done tastefully and professionally."
