Maid to Candy Spelling: Gimme a Break

4/16/2009 8:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

You know the recession is hitting everyone when gazillionaire Candy Spelling is being accused of trying to screw her housekeeper out of a few bucks a day.

Candy Spelling

Candy's ex maid has filed a lawsuit against Tori's mom, accusing her of tightwad employment practices at her Beverly Hills mansion -- specifically making her clock out for ten minute breaks twice a day and not paying her for the downtime.

The lawsuit, filed today in L.A. County Superior Court, says Candy's people insisted they were required by law to give the maid relief -- but apparently the maid thinks relief without money is no relief at all.

Oh yeah -- the maid got fired. She's asking for unspecified damages.

This creature is absolutely the UGLIEST witch in Hollywwood., Of course, her husband was an ugly mess, and that daughter and son they spawned should tie for second place in the Dracula Look-Alike Contest. (Mother Candy is a shoe-in for first place.) She's so ugly she makes my teeth ache. An d I have it on good authority that when she appeared on the Larry King show, the two of them tred to out-fart the other.

Beyond cheap and pathetic! I don't know the Labor Laws in CA, but in NY every full time employee is ENTITLED to ~ by LAW ~ a 15 minute PAID break in the morning and another one in the afternoon. Not to mention time for lunch (minimum 30 minutes for a 40 hour work week). DECENT employers pay employees for lunch and also give them an hour. I'm guessing Candy's maid works more than 40 hours per week. Don't ya think??
Go for the lawsuit!

It seems like housekeepers are hooking up with predatory and desperate lawyers to milk employers for money. Lawyers are desperate for money and it shows. It used to be seem confined to male laborers, now it's spreading, especially as illegals feel less fear about their legal status. Some illegal aliens think their lottery ticket is to come to the U.S. and get a lawsuit settlement.

#2 is a whiny toad. So she didn't look at you, big deal. Why should she look at you? Get over your big trauma. How will you ever go on?

What is WRONG with this plastic woman??? Good God, she has more money than God (plus Tori's), and now has to screw the maid out of a few bucks. How proud her mother must be to have raised such a kind and generous hunk of crap. She's a desperate washed up evil, evil person. I hope the maid gets enough to buy the house from the bitch and then have Tori and the grandkids move in. Karma has a way of evening things out.

What she or any of them look like has nothing to do with anything. Can't you losers come up with any intelligent commentary, it's always "ugly bitch" "hag" blah blah blah. Some very jealous and creepy people here. What do YOU look like in the mirror?

I've been told, by people "in the know," that Candy has a nasty habit of masturbating her pet dogs.

She may be a bitch or whatever you say, but you cannot win a lawsuit for not getting paid on breaks. Nobody is required to pay you for your breaks ,.. no matter how much money they have. And nevertheless, she is a maid. It doesn't matter who she's a maid for, she's still a maid and she should still receive a maid's pay.

Honestly, , ,who cares! Since the beginging of time, there has been 'classism', the 'haves v have nots' and so on. Live by the Golden Rule, and you will be spared this public humiliation when you get your 15 minutes of fame. . .

Thanks for TMZ for providing the complaint to read. It appears to be an open and shut case of worker harassment and wrongful termination. How can someone with $500 million at least be so pathologically cheap to cheat the workers out of their lawfully required breaks? It's outrageous.
