Fearing viewers would find her cleavage 'offensive,' 'CSI' TV executives ask Dita Von Teese to cover up for her teacher role.
Busty beauty Dita Von Teese was forced to cover up for her guest appearance on "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" - because TV executives feared viewers would find her cleavage "offensive". The star plays a shy teacher with a secret life as a stripper, called Rita Von Squeeze, in a new episode, due to air in the U.S. next week, January 20.
Von Teese has now revealed show bosses asked her to tone down her usual raunchy look to avoid upsetting viewers. She tells America's TV Guide, "There was a lot of network talk about my 'offensive cleavage', which I found interesting considering how much blood and gore there is."
"We had to take it down a notch."
