Montel Staffer Sues -- I Can Handle the Pressure!

2/14/2008 12:08 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

A former producer for the "Montel Williams" show says she was fired from her $110,000 a year job after suffering a brain aneurysm ... and she's suing mad!
Read the lawsuit against Montel Williams
Erin Primmer began working for Williams in August 2005. On March 29, 2007 she collapsed on the set after suffering the aneurysm and was rushed to a hospital. The following month, she was cleared by her doctor to go back to work with no restrictions. That's when she alleges the executive producer told her the show was not going to renew her contract, telling her, "CBS needed someone capable of handling the pressure, and that the coming year was going to be worse." Primmer says that is "a clear violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act, New York State and New York City law" and has filed suit.

A call to CBS was not immediately returned.

Montel is such a joke. His show has sucked for years. And his pushing that prescription drug
gimmeck also stinks. I tried that once, And an individual is put through the ringer when it comes
to getting help. The amount of paperwork is unbelieveable. I even wrote him about it and never
got an answer. I got my prescriptions, but when I needed a refill the paperwork doubled!
And then I never got the refills. And then another couple of letters went unanswered.
Beware people.Your better off contacting the drug companies personally instead of Montels side job.
I bet Sylvia Brown never saw that coming. I hope the lady bringing the show to court
gets Millions!

That makes Montal a hypcrite. His show should be cancelled as it might worsen his MS.
