Mattel Sues Over X-Rated Barbie/Are Pamela Anderson, Anna Nicole Smith, Dozens of Others Next?

In US District Court in Manhattan, Mattel filed suit against an adult entertainer named China Barbie over her use of the Barbie name. (Site appears to be down).

China Barbie’s site says she’s a 34D-22-33 (all natural!) “cordial young lady” who sat behind the desks of some of the world’s leading investment banking firms and advertising agencies in New York before getting into porn. Her IMDB listing includes Me Luv You Long Time, Ethnic Cheerleaders 8 and Pussyman’s Shaving Starlets.

But she’s not even blonde. Why is Mattel pursuing her and not dozens, nay hundreds of other lookalike bimbos?
