      A Toronto woman who dines and dashes out on men she considers less than dashing will soon have her own reality TV show. Actress Erin Wotherspoon gained notoriety in November after her Tumblr blog, A Penniless Girl, Bad Dates & Plenty of Oysters, caught the eye of media.  Wotherspoon was chastised after allegedly duping men into first dates in exchange for a free dinner at high-end restaurants and then blogging about the experience to the point of receiving death threats. However, that has led to several television pitches -- including this deal from Los Angeles film company Relativity Media ­-- and even a New York book offer. She says, "Right now, it's being referred in the contract as the unscripted Erin Wotherspoon series. The concept is taking place in America, and I would go all over America and try different restaurants."
