"Price" is Wrong, Says One Former Employee

10/4/2007 8:17 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Breaking NewsNo one testifies against Bob Barker and gets away with it ... at least that's what one former "Price is Right" employee says in a new lawsuit!

In a lawsuit filed today in Los Angeles County Superior Court, Deborah Curling says she worked for "Price" for 20 years, in what she called a "pleasant working environment." She says all that changed when she testified against Barker in a harassment suit that was brought against the game show legend, and that producers on the show "started harassing her in an attempt to force her to quit her job."

Because of this alleged treatment, Curling says she "has suffered and continued to suffer severe emotional and physical distress." In addition, Curling says "every morning she wakes up in physical pain due to what stress did to her body." Ouch! No Plinko for you!

Curling is seeking compensatory and punitive damages from Barker, CBS, and FremantleMedia, "Price's" production company.

CBS declined comment, while calls to the production company were not immediately returned.

This goes back to other 'Barkers Beauties' suing and having problems with Barker. Ever since that all came out, I refused to watch the show. I do like Drew Carey though so I may tune in now that Barker is gone.

I hope this woman wins her lawsuit.

These con artist females have been harassing Bob Barker for ages. Endless harassment. Why can't the courts deal with them?

Is this what the courts are being used for?

COULD YOU FIND A LESS FLATTERING PIC OF THE GUY TMZ? JESUS..

Let me tell you something. I'm over 50 and female. Every single woman experiences some sexual harrassment in her job at some point in time. If you're female and haven't, well, you're still working and you're not dead yet... or you weigh 400 lbs and have greasy hair.

Add to that the kind of females you have to assume work on these type of shows.. implants and botox. Not exactly the type that get respect just by walking the halls with their brain capacity.

I'm not saying it's right (if he did ) harrass her, I'm saying let's look at all sides of the issue. I have no problem with her lawsuit.. I have a problem with that pic u used of the guy who spent a century on tv reminding ppl to get their pets spayed and neutered.

10,000 cats and dogs are put to sleep a day in this country due to over population.

He does something of value (at least) with his life..
