In 1988, Janice was knocked off-stage by a camera during taping and rendered unconscious. She later sued, and in 1992 was awarded $1.3 million. It was the first of many lawsuits filed against TPIR by former models. In 1994, she authored Husband, Lover, Spy, an account of her search for boyfriend and famed mountain climber Fritz Stammberger, who went missing in 1975 in a restricted area along the borders of Afghanistan, Pakistan and Russia. She married writer Carlos de Abreu, who co-authored the book, in 1992. They founded the Hollywood Film Festival in 1997. In 1995, fellow model Holly Hallstrom was dismissed from the show. When she subsequently complained she had been fired for failing to lose weight -- which she claimed was the result of side-effects from prescription drugs she took for a hormonal imbalance -- Barker sued her for libel and slander. Hallstrom replied with a countersuit. Pennington was fired shortly after having been subpoenaed to give testimony during Hallstrom's lawsuit.
