The gorgeous star of “There’s Something About Miriam” won’t be doing any promotion for the dating show, premiering on Fox Reality channel on Halloween. The show, which first aired in Britain in 2004, featured six men competing for the 21-year-old Mexican stunner. They were filmed in Ibiza, Spain, kissing and seducing Miriam for weeks before she revealed she was a pre-op transsexual – a she-male. One contestant punched out a producer and they all sued, claiming they’d been tricked and were devastated. The men settled for an undisclosed amount.

Miriam lives in New York, but won’t help promote the series. Sources say she was seriously injured last spring when she was thrown out of a third-story window at her home. “She’s not doing any press. She’s living a very private life now,” a Fox Reality spokeswoman told Page Six. And Miriam still has her male equipment. As Brian Lowry noted in Variety, “The show’s use of Miriam’s [sex organ] approximates the shark’s role in ‘Jaws’ – Just knowing it’s lurking down there helps maintain a certain level of suspense.”

Here’s the moment of truth on video.
