Woman to Hef: I Gave You the Best Years ...

12/31/2009 8:54 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

In a lawsuit that arguably defies the very fabric of Playboy, a woman who was fired by Playboy Enterprises claims Hugh Hefner prefers younger women.



Jennifer Lewis, a former Guest Relations Coordinator for the Playboy Mansion, claims she was fired after she turned 47 and replaced by a 33-year-old woman. The suit claims Lewis, who is suing Hef as well as other Playboy big wigs, gave the defendants "over ten of the best years of her life."

Lewis claims beginning last year, she was singled out and subjected to a hostile work environment. Lewis claims it got so bad she was placed on anti-depressants.

In the lawsuit, filed today in L.A. County Superior Court, Lewis is asking for unspecified damages.

No immediate comment from Playboy.

You got enough money when you worked there, now it's time to go. They are downsizing and it begins with you. Hope you saved and invested some.

Lie down with dogs....wake up with fleas. Lesson learned by the loss of 10 years of life. I hope he overpaid you so you have something left.
Actually, why wouldn't Hef be subject to the age discrimination laws?

What on earth did she expect? She works in pornography for one of the biggest sleezebags on earth in an industry that is geared towards disrespect of women. I don't have any sympathy for her, she had to know what she was getting into when she took the job of oppressing her fellow women.

Good for her! They use a woman's beauty and toss her aside after a certain age! It's about time someone like Hef was held responsible after "hiring" all these playmates.

I dont really understand the age discrimination thing. She was 47, the lady who replaced her is 33, not 20. There is really not that much of a difference. They said she was so upset about it she had to take depression medication. Sounds like she is the one who had a problem with her age so much so she went of meds, and this discrimination is all in her head. Its just a great way to get some more money from Hef.

UGGGGHHH    

move on lady. Hef had his way with you until the WRINKLES came.
Who the hell wants to see a body that is aging and unattractive to the public eye. No magazine will sell with old people on it.

If they were your best year of your life, then why are you claiming it was stressful? I feel sorry for the rest of your life if the only way you had good years was because of Hef!
