Povich, Others Sued for Sex Harassment

By SAMUEL MAULL, Associated Press Writer2 hours, 11 minutes ago



A producer for TV talk-show host Maury Povich filed a $100 million sex harassment lawsuit against him and other members of his staff Monday, claiming they barraged her with sexual remarks and made her watch porno movies and expose her body.

Bianca Nardi, 28, of Fort Lee, N.J., says in court papers that the sexually charged atmosphere among the show's production staff was fostered by the "intimate and sexual relationship between defendants Maurice Richard Povich and Donna Benner Ingber."

Court papers also say Nardi had an unfairly heavy workload because she did tasks that were supposed to be done by Ingber, who often refused to do her own work — without penalty — because of her relationship with Povich.

Povich is married to the veteran television news anchor Connie Chung.

Gary Rosen, spokesman for the show, flatly denied the allegations, as did a spokeswoman for NBC Universal.

"We are aware of the allegations of harassment made by Ms. Nardi. We have done a complete and thorough investigation of her allegations of harassment and we are satisfied that there is no merit to them," Rosen said. "We stand behind our experienced and dedicated staff, fully."

"We do not believe that Ms. Nardi was a victim of unlawful sexual harassment and intend to defend this lawsuit vigorously," NBC spokeswoman Rebecca Marks said.

The suit contains a list of sordid allegations.

Ingber, who is also named as a defendant, "many times in an intoxicated condition, telephoned (Nardi's) residence at all hours of the late evening to discuss her personal relations with defendant Povich (and other men whom she was secretly seeing)" and to ask Nardi what staffers were saying about the relationship, court papers say.

Nardi says she went to work for the show in June 2000 and was promoted twice. She worked there until this month, when she took a temporary medical leave, said her lawyer Bruce Baron.

Through the nearly six years of her employment, Nardi's court papers say, Paul Faulhaber, executive producer of "The Maury Povich Show," ordered her to wear short skirts, low-cut blouses and push-up bras. Faulhaber is also a defendant in the suit.

Court papers say Faulhaber directed her to wear concealed cameras and microphones for undercover assignments "such as going to bars to secretly videotape married men agreeing to have sex with her."

Nardi complains in court papers that these activities were outside her job description but she was forced to comply for fear of being fired. Her lawsuit says that when she complained, Faulhaber retaliated by making her do other demeaning jobs.

Court papers say Faulhaber forced Nardi "to run a gauntlet of sexually abusive and intimidating conduct," including posing in sexually explicit positions, exposing her breasts and watching porn with Faulhaber.

Baron said Monday that Nardi has been in psychiatric treatment because of the harassment. He also said she gained 40 to 50 pounds because of the workplace stress.

Besides, Povich, Ingber and Faulhaber, the lawsuit names NBC Universal Television and Povich's production company, Mopo, as defendants.

The lawsuit asks at least $100 million in compensatory and punitive damages.

She's definitely trying to force a settlement. :hehehe:

I agree most of the charges are wacked....because any sane person would've said "No".

Maury: "Shut up and pass the steak sauce!

Funny story....

I was at the hospital waiting in the lobby for them to call my name for a test I was getting done. I turned the tv til I saw Maury and stopped. There were two other women about my age and an senior guy....he looked like a business man, he had a suit on. If y'all could've seen him....he couldn't here that well and he kept asking "was he the daddy?" :lol: We were a site watching that show.....let's just say we were all into it equally. :rolls:

It's kinda cold when the guys leap out the chair fist-pumping the air and talk shyte though. That's when you start feeling sorry for the girl. I mean, damn she's pathetic. :lol:

Yes... I called everyone I knew to tell them I knew her :rolls: Anyway, we chatted a bit during the flight and I played with the baby(10 months at the time) who was quite fussy most of the time... She told me she was taking him to visit his dad, and this was her first trip to the city.
While watching the show I learned that the baby daddy (black dude) had a girlfriend who along with her man didn't believe the kid was his because he had only slept with her once:haha: They were all yelling and cursing --- you know :lol: In the end the kid was NOT the dude's :haha:

I've probably shared this story before but....

When I was in college, I was my last semester (summer school) and I was taking this sociology class and there was this real serious lady in the front of the class. She was older and she was an attorney. One day after class, I went back to my room and watched Montel and low and behold she was on it and the show was called, "I want to have your baby"..:o:o:o She was on there trying to convince her ex-boyfriend to donate sperm to her so she could have his baby. :tape: Since it was summer school I had class the next day and that was the first thing out of some of our mouths...did you see her on Montel. :secret:

That's just sad. :sad: Her vagina is apparently like a trash receptor....everybody's throwing a little something in it as they walk on by. :eek: :tape: :eek:

My goodness how could you be sleeping with that many men without protection? :scratch: or is she a prostitute? I would say not because then she wouldn't know who they were, right? Sad, Sad, Sad.... :sad:

I'm sure she takes care of her kids with the same amount of carelessness. :(
