Gayle King Wants Matchmaker Lawsuit Dismissed!

gayle-king-wants-matchmaker-lawsuit-dismissed

Uh-oh! Gayle King is NOT playing around!

A few months back, she was sued by a woman known as Orly the Matchmaker, over claims that Gayle promised her an appearance on Oprah in return for her service, which normally costs $500,000, and it never panned out!

However, now the Big O's BFF has filed new documents in California federal court, requesting that the lawsuit be thrown out, because the state law asserts that oral contracts, which Orly cites as their main form of agreement, involving 'dating services' are "void and unenforceable!"

We didn't expect them to keep quiet about claims as horrific as these!

Former Real World castmember Tonya Cooley filed a suit against MTV, Bunim/Murray Productions, Kenneth Santucci and Evan Starkman for the latter two apparently using a tooth brush to violate her on camera while she was passed out during the production of The Real World/Road Rules Challenge: The Ruins, and now, a rep for the production company is denying the claims as completely false!

Oh man - if this is true, then we would have NOT expected this kind of shadiness from HERE!

Gayle King, has been reportedly sued by professional matchmaker Orly Hadida AKA "Orly The Matchmaker," because she claims that The Big O's main BFF wanted to find some loving, and entered into a verbal agreement with her, under the terms that she would either be compensated monetarily or by being featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show!

Obviously, according to Orly, neither of these two things happened, so she's now seeking compensatory, general, and punitive damages, statutory penalties, restitution, and legal fees for breach of contract!

According to the suit:

Ouch! Tough break!

Carnie Wilson, of Wilson Phillips, is reportedly on the verge of losing her home!

According to legal documents filed at the El Lay County Recorder's Office, the singer has defaulted on her mortgage, and still owes over $1.6 million! She has until July 21st to pay her bills before the house goes into auction!

Our fingers are crossed for you, gurl!

Real Housewives Of NYC Castmember Accused Of Discrimination!

real-housewives-of-nyc-cindy-barshop-accused-of-discrimination

Uh-oh!

The newest castmember on The Real Housewives of New York City, Cindy Barshop, has been slapped with a discrimination complaint because a former employee at one of her Completely Bare spas claimed that she was not only verbally abused by the reality star and her co-workers, but fired because she was African American!

According to Altovise Collier, she relocated from Atlanta to New York for the job after being interviewed over the phone, and once her employers discovered she was black, she was harassed on a regular basis, and would only get half of her $700 weekly salary in cash, so she couldn't lease or rent an apartment!

Furthermore, she goes on to claim that other employees would tell her that she was only hired to "inject some color," and no one would would teach her the proper waxing techniques, which caused her customers to complain. When she addressed the way she was being treated with Barshop, she was let go a week later!

Awful!

Collier says in a statement:

"They were very impressed with me — until they saw me. I was treated like trash and thrown in the gutter, damn near sleeping in the streets. Everyone treated me badly, like I was in some sort of sorority hazing."

Barshop, on the other hand, asserts that Collier was let go "because of the quality of her work."

Well, if this woman is telling the truth, then whose fault is that?!

We sincerely hope that these claims are false, because if not, gurl is going to have some SERIOUS explaining to do!

Especially if she wants to keep her spot on the reality series! She doesn't come off as particularly pleasant or interesting, as it is!

What do U think?? Is Cindy guilty of discrimination??

Jaime Pressly Files For Divorce.

Filed under: Legal MattersJaime PresslySad Sad

jaime-pressly-files-for-divorce-from-simran-singh

Goodness, 2011 has NOT started out well for her!

After receiving reports earlier in the week that Jaime Pressly and her husband of just over a year, Simran Singh, already split, it's now been confirmed that the two have filed for divorce.

According to court documents filed in El Lay on January 21st, the actress cited irreconcilable differences, and is asking that her surname be restored to 'Pressly.'

So unfortunate, especially given her recent DUI and trouble with the IRS.

Keep your chin up, bb.

Hopefully things will turn around soon - it's only a matter of time before they do.

Stay strong.
