WEST BABYLON, N.Y. (PIX11) In this now famous photograph taken in 2012, is 86-year-old Bernice Youngblood having fun as she stuffs a dollar bill into the briefs of a stripper, or is she traumatized?

“I felt terrible,” said Youngblood. “I kept shaking.”

Youngblood, who was rolled out before TV cameras Tuesday by her two sons and their attorneys, suffers from partial dementia.

Her sons, Franklyn and Darryl, have filed a $10 million lawsuit against East Neck Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in West Babylon.

The facility claims all the ladies voted to have the stripper and paid their own money for the dirty dancing.
