So remember Denise Martin's tale of woe, of getting demoted to janitor upon her return from China, on Sunday's reunion show for Survivor: China? A tale of woe that prompted producer Mark Burnett to promise her $50K on the spot?

According to the school district where Denise works, this is not true. From this article:

Yikes. I don't know what the deal is with this, but I have a feeling the aftermath ain't going to be pretty.

UPDATE: More details. Martin and Lane were on The Early Show this morning. Video is here, after a commercial. Denise says what Lane says is true. She says that when she returned, she wanted to go back to her old job as lunch lady because of the day shift issue. Lane says at the moment, that position is not available and that if she wants to change jobs, she knows the process for transferring jobs. Denise also apologized for being accidentally misleading and apologized to Lane and the rest of the district. Julie Chen asked her about the money from Burnett, and Denise said she didn't do this to get money, but she didn't answer the question about whether she would take the money.

Also, I had been wondering whether host Jeff Probst was going to ask Todd about how he dealt with his tribemates publicly doubting whether his sister had had a miscarriage, which came up in the family visits. In this interview (which is currently not loading for me -- I will try to get to it later and update this with a quote), he says the story was true, and the Courtney gave him a heads up and called and apologized to his family the day of the show for her egregious comments.
