Barbi Twins: Duped by "The Ultimate Con Man"

8/29/2007 1:38 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Shane and Sia Barbi (aka "The Barbi Twins") have filed a lawsuit claiming they were duped by an alleged con man into using their celeb connections to make the animal rights film, "Your Mommy Kills Animals." Don't play with Barbis!
Exclusive: Barbi Twins
The twins allege that Curt Johnson lied about being a Oscar winner, and that Daily Variety (which the Barbis are also suing), printed a story about how he sealed a $30 million film deal. They say in reality, Curt is just "selling T-shirts and living in a guest house in exchange for gardening services."

According to the lawsuit, Curt claimed to have a "close relationship" with Lindsay Lohan and her mom Dina, but that was also "bogus." To top it all off, Johnson created false reviews of the film, using celebrities Clint Eastwood, Stan Lee and Larry Flynt.

The Barbis are seeking $1 million in damages. Don't pull their heads off!

Zero brains between the two of em. Another desperate attempt by the o so minimally talented bimbos of Hollywierd to grab attention for their non-existant careers. Back to the plastic surgeon girls. Yer old and it shows.

Merry Christmas    

What the hell happened to these two? I remember when they first came out, they were very attractive. This is the poster child(ren) for PLASTIC SURGERY DON'T. Why do these women do this? I am just shaking and scratching my head. What a shame.

These two women are trainwrecks. Why didn't they just check the person's credentials? It's easy enough especially when someone claims to have won an Oscar. Are they that desperate or did the silicone from their lips and cheeks finally leak into their brains. Why does TMZ keeping posting about them? I never even heard who they were until TMZ. I suggest the person they are suing just giving them a gift certificate for unlimited silocone injections and they will be happy.

SHE'S AN ATTENTION WHORE    

When are the Bozo twins going to grow brains? Them and their stupid "animals before people" mentality always seem to get them in trouble; now they're getting taken by con men. You know what? They get what they deserve...

Puh-lease    

The Barbis had a responsibility to perform due diligence. Just calling an industry rag is not due diligence. They needed to actually contact reps for the celebrities themselves. They did not.

I'm sure this con man took one look at them, and correctly pegged them as stupid bimbos.
