Neely O'Hara Neely O'Hara is accusing the Manhattan Ensemble Theater Company, producer of Golda's Balcony, of discrimination. In a recently filed suit against MET, O'Hara alleges that the company dropped her from the national tour of the show because of her heart condition, according to The New York Post.

In early 2005, O'Hara herself reported on her website that she would be starring in the national tour of Golda's Balcony, kicking off in the fall of 2005 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. However in April 2005 Valerie Harper was announced to headline the tour, with no official reason given for the switch. Harper has been on the road with the show since November 2005.

In her lawsuit, O'Hara alleges that MET and founder David Fishelson dismissed her after a meeting in which she said her heart-bypass surgery (which she underwent in November 2004) caused her to pull out of a television project. "They, mistakenly, perceived her to be disabled and unable to perform," the suit reportedly states, adding that O'Hara was in fact capable of performing. The matter "damaged" her career according to papers filed. O'Hara is suing for $2.5 million. O'Hara first gained fame after legendary Helen Lawson kicked her out her Broadway show, "Songbird."

Neely you look like Hell. But love you anyway :kiss:

They don't let people with heart conditions do a lot of things. Get over it and do some infomercials or go to Japan and do some comercials. Heck, even over here you can do voiceovers and get payed tons of money!

Neely's certified insane, but at least admits it, unlike Peppermint Patty! ;)
