Yvonne Nelson, who is currently a producer and CEO of YN Productions, urged ladies not to give in to any producer who makes such demands.

“My thing is that if somebody wants to do that, just walk away because I know my value, I know what I bring to the table, I know that hey, you called me for the job and I know I can nail it so if you know that you want something in exchange, I’m sorry,” she said.
