I'm in two minds over this - on the one hand you shouldn't work with anyone you don't want to, but on the other, if you want to maintain a professional attitude to your modelling, then you should work with anyone and everyone as long as the compensation fits.
If TFP won't benefit your portfolio, ask for money; if the job sounds really crap with long hours, travelling and discomfort attached, ask for more money.
I'll photograph any damn thing you ask me to if the price is right - this is my job.
I agree with you to a point, but there does come a time when a model needs to protect their own brand and do their best to make sure only quality images of themselves exist out there. While it's easy enough to only publish their best work in their portfolios, the Internet, and social networking, does make it easy to find the other less than great images.
