News Vixen Lane Using Dr. Phil to Win Lawsuit?

1/31/2008 6:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Recently axed anchorbabe Alycia Lane is going after the station that fired her -- in court -- and she might be pulling out the race card, and some other wild cards to try to win the case.

Lane filed papers to start legal action against CBS3 yesterday, reports the Philadelphia Daily News, in which she's asking for some interesting information, including "any documents" related to Dr. Phil McGraw, Prince Albert of Monaco and sports guy Rich Eisen. She's had well-publicized brushes with all three; she cried on Phil's show, posed with Prince Albert in a cozy clinch, and sent bikini pictures to Eisen.

Lane, who allegedly assaulted an NYPD officer back in December, also asked for files from CBS3 related to the firing of any other latinas or black anchors.

Paul Rosen, Lane's attorney, didn't return our call for comment, and a CBS3 rep says the station "has seen the filing."

millions of people in this country have a sliver of blood from the Spanish settlers, since the flag of Spain flew over many states in the 1500s to 1800's. So, does that mean anyone who is not descended from the Pilgrims cry 'racism' when fired now? She is making a mockery of the Civil Rights movement.

I sort of feel sorry for her. She was a good anchor here in Philly and help pull Channel 3’s ratings out of the basement. The last couple of years were the first time the station was close to number 1 in the market since Jessica Savitch left. The really sad part is she has a boy friend that is more interested in using her to promote his own career, than to help her get her’s back on track.

I find it surprising that this woman has an almost psychotic episode to undercover officers, and when employers feel she is unfit for them to have in their employ she decides to start making arrangements to play the race card. As I recall an employer is allowed to let someone go if they bring bad press or a dark cloud over the company. Good luck babe - i'm sure the people of Killadelphia will be behind you.. rather, inline to take your job.

Next time you get drunk and freak out on the NYPD make sure your job sucks.

Dear alicia,
Many people will have no respect for you if you play the race card....leave with some dignity. The station has a right to fire you...and for your information...you are as white as they come.

Another psycho-bitch friend of Ross's. Look, she was born good looking, do you honestly expect her to play fair? She's desperate. She's used to getting her way based on her looks and it didn't work for her with the police. Get used to it honey, you're getting older everyday and your shelf life is about to expire.

Race card??? How about the Crazy Card?? She's NUTS! Her race had nothing to do with her being fired - her actions & the fact that she's INSANE however, did.

She got fired because of her "moral" behavior. She acts like a slut. They would have fired a white person if they acted like she did. Let's not forget her Homophobic remarks to the female police officer either.. This broad is just a skank. She needss to admit she's nasty and just go away. I'm sure Larry Flynnt will give her a job.

Her looks have gotten her a long way but you can't fix crazy! There is no room for her on the news. Better off without her. She should try extra or TMZ!
