If they had any common sense, they not only would have kept her on the show, they would have put the spotlight on her and used her pregnancy as a promotional tool.

Nem Wan: Pennington later put out a book theorizing that her husband, who was one of the top mountain climbers in the world, had been a CIA agent who was captured and killed in Soviet-occupied Afghanistan.


I don't care what you say. That's some weapons grade guano-psychosis right there.

After Cochran won her trial, the California Supreme Court made a decision about jury instructions...

Maybe it's just early in the morning, but I'm not getting this. And I'm too tired to bother.

so, your job is to be eye candy
you hid something that impacts your ability to do your job from your employer
you were fired for having a lesser ability to do your job.
you deserve 7.7 million dollars why?

i can understand if your job was data entry or something other than "look pretty for the cameras"... but you're farking scenery. they replace the carpet when it gets stained/worn out too.

TFA: "...she says that the producers then treated her differently and gave her less work, causing stress that led to health issues for her and her child."


Well, that's a novel perspective on the relationship between workload and stress.

KellyKellyKelly: Old Man Winter: That reminded me of this tidbit (as seen on Wiki):

"Officially, the mountain climber has no name, although several hosts have used their own names for him. Doug Davidson referred to the climber on The New Price Is Right as "Hans Gudegast", which is the birth name of his Young and the Restless co-star Eric Braeden. Drew Carey has referred to him as "Hans", "Yodel Man", and most frequently, "Yodely Guy." At The Price Is Right Live!, he is often referred to as "Johann." Dennis James referred to the climber as "Fritz"; in one infamous incident in 1976, after the climber fell off the cliff, James commented, "There goes Fritz!", unaware that Janice Pennington's then-husband, Fritz Stammberger had recently disappeared in a mountain climbing accident; James's offhand comment upset Pennington so much that she remained backstage crying for the rest of the episode "

I don't care what you say, that's funny right there.

octopied: -It's a job where they only hire attractive,younger people in good shape
-Your entire job skillset is to act charming and look attractive
-Why were they required to rehire her?
-$7.7 mil is a ridiculous settlement for that kind of thing

Anyone,not just her could sue them because technically they breach normal hiring policies by being looks oriented.It's a ridiculous suit.


I'm not one to easily dismiss discrimination suits, but it's fairly obvious she was hired on looks and looks alone.  Mature adults should be willing to enter into employment contracts that state outright "You are being hired because of your physical appearance, and your continuing employment is predicated on the maintenance of a specific image."

Somebody at FremantleMedia knows that judge and called in a favor. There are no laws that apply to big Hollywood producers in the land of fruits nuts and flakes. I hope the next jury doubles the damages.

She should have bid $20, $30, and $40 on the individual prizes. You never lose if you go with $20, $30, and $40.
