Fashion Police may be one of E!'s top rated shows, but it certainly doesn't come across that way in their writers' paychecks!
On Wednesday, the writers filed a claim with the California Division of Labor Standards Enforcement, accusing their employer of violating state laws by not paying them overtime.
One writer said:
