There have been stories for years that the showcase girls on The Price Is Right have been harassed and treated unfairly. Well, in a new lawsuit, one of the girls has had enough, and taking action!
According to Yahoo, Lanisha Cole, who left the show in 2010, filed a 20-page civil complaint that includes “wrongful termination, wrongful sexual harassment, failure to take steps to prevent harassment, false imprisonment, and infliction of emotional distress.”
She claims that it was the producers that treated her like this while backstage. And when I read that the producers were Michael G. Richards, and Adam Sandler, I was a bit shocked, until I realized it WAS NOT Billy Madison and Cosmo Kramer. And one situation that involves Sandler, was that he just walked into her closed dressing room, without knocking, and complaining to her, while she was still changing her outfit.
Cole’s attorney, Solomon Gresen, is actively working on the case, and says:
“This case is about senior-level men in the entertainment industry exploiting power and control over women by bullying and harassing female talent.” He added, “Ms. Cole did nothing to provoke Richards and Sandler. Once the harassment began, she was powerless to stop it.”
The question is, since she was fired, is she just trying to get back at the producers because there have been rumors of sexual harassment all of these years, or is she being truthful? Read more and decide for yourself, at Yahoo.com
