"I was very upset that I was fired because I had been told by many editors that I was doing a good job," Tessler said in a statement.
"There was no question on the form that covered my dancing. I answered the questions on the form honestly."
Her lawyer, celebrity attorney Gloria Allred stated:
"Sarah's work as a dancer is lawful and is not a crime."
"It does not, has not and will not affect her ability to perform her job as a journalist," Allred said.
Tressler reprotedly has a master's degree in journalism from New York University and worked as a society reporter for the publication starting in January.
She reportedly was fired in March.
