Some girls get all the luck! (TLI delayed)

Hey guys...just so no one freaks out, Aimee and Kim's TLI: Hiatus episode will be delayed until Monday.

****************

LOS ANGELES (AP) - A woman who claims she was sexually harassed then fired from the TV show "Lost" is suing ABC and actor Henry Ian Cusick.

The lawsuit filed Friday in Los Angeles alleges that Cusick, who plays Desmond Hume on the show, fondled the woman's buttocks and breasts and kissed her on the lips in October 2007. The lawsuit claims she reported the incident to her supervisor, but was simply told to avoid the actor. She states she was fired 12 days later in retaliation for reporting the alleged abuse.

The filing says the woman had worked for ABC since 1997.

The lawsuit does not specify how much she is seeking. Messages left for an ABC spokesman and Cusick's manager were not immediately returned.

I can't believe ABC could be so dumb. Maybe Holli needs to speak to this but how I understand it, the network or whoever she worked for does not have a leg to stand on.

But the rules don't apply to Desmond right??? So all is ok.

RRB - I think posting a thread with the Dharmalars logo would be up to Ralph (or Ben) if they wanted to, or if they had something they wanted to post. I miss it too :(

Rrb said...

Crank 2 was great. Redonkfuckingdiculous. But great.

Bai Ling was used exactly as she should be.

Two days til LOSTnesday! What is that Faraday dude doing back on the Island? What was he doing off Island?

Was he setting up Bram and gang? Does he know what lies in the shadow of the statue?!

Will the president's news conference affect Lost this week?

PalmerEldritch said...

WHAT?!

That'd blow!

First, they buzz NYC with a 747 being chased by fighter jets without telling the Mayor and then they might delay LOST on the East Coast?!?!

The White House hasn't been the same since Kumar started working there a few weeks ago. :p

If the address delays Lost my theory is that Kal Penn is exacting his revenge for being turned down for the role of Sayid.

The press conference is from 8pm - 9pm, so unless it runs long, LOST should be fine...

/fingers crossed

All these televised presidential press conferences, ugh. Almost makes you long for the good ol' days. Back when nobody cared enough about the president for the networks to broadcast him speaking.

If the Presidential press conference interferes with my LOST viewing I will remember it in 2012. I hope Kal Penn is listening.

I have no comment on the lawsuit unless someone wants to pay me $400/hour to comment on it.
