'Price Is Right' Suit - They Called Me 'Wide Load'

3/1/2010 8:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

A former "Price Is Right" model claims the show was so cruel about staffers becoming pregnant, she suffered a miscarriage from stress and abuse.

'Price Is Right

Brandi Cochran claims she became pregnant in 2007 but didn't tell anyone because she was afraid of getting fired. Brandi claims the stress was so severe, "that pregnancy ended in a miscarriage."

Brandi claims when she told a producer about the miscarriage, the producer told her, "It's natures way of getting rid of a bad baby."

In late 2008, Cochran became pregnant again. She claims, in the lawsuit filed today in L.A. County Superior Court, a producer put his hands on his head when he learned she was having twins.

In the docs, Brandi claims when she walked past a producer he said, "Wide load coming through."

Brandi says she had complications from the pregnancy and went on disability. She claims she was eventually squeezed out of her job on February 23.

Brandi was a prize model during Bob Barker's reign as well as Drew Carey's.

CBS had no comment on the lawsuit.

Not to be rude but she was stressed the first time b/c she never said anything and was afraid to get fired. Well that's her fault then. Maybe if she didn't keep it a secret she wouldn't have been so stressed and lost the baby. She can sue b/c she got fired from being on disabilty but who knows if she'll win.

Pogues Streets Of Sorrow-Birmingham Six lyrics

Oh farewell you streets of sorrow
And farewell you streets of pain
I'll not return to feel more sorrow
Nor to see more young men slain
Through the last six years I've lived through terror
And in the darkened streets the pain
Oh how I long to find some solace
In my mind I curse the strain
So farewell you streets of sorrow
And farewell you streets of pain
No I'll not return to feel more sorrow
Nor to see more young men slain
There were six men in Birmingham
In Guildford there's four
That were picked up and tortured
And framed by the law
And the filth got promotion
But they're still doing time
For being Irish in the wrong place
And at the wrong time
In Ireland they'll put you away in the maze
In England they'll keep you for seven long days
God help you if ever you're caught on these shores
The coppers need someone
And they walk through that door
You'll be counting years
First five, then ten
Growing old in a lonely hell
Round the yard and the stinking cell
From wall to wall, and back again
A curse on the judges, the coppers and screws
Who tortured the innocent, wrongly accused
For the price of promotion
And justice to sell
May the judged by their judges when they rot down in hell
May the whores of the empire lie awake in their beds
And sweat as they count out the sins on their heads
While over in Ireland eight more men lie dead
Kicked down and shot in the back of the head

you just don't get it    

If she was in such a stressful environment why didn't she leave long ago? Is pointing to cars and crap more important than the health of your baby? Maybe she's the one that should be prosecuted for fetal endangerment.

To start with most models are nuts and second if they had a real job they would probably have to kill themselves.

maybe she had the miscarriage because she was lying and hiding the pregnancy from the producers. STRESS.... sounds like the stress was caused by her. Due to her lie maybe she will never know the true cause to the stress that caused her miscarriage. The fact of the matter is she doesn't care she wants $

Did she not realize her career was based on her looks?
Must be a little more dense than everyone else.

Drama queen troublemaker. Pfft.

Frivolous lawsuits need to stop. Is she a doctor now? There are plenty of women that suffer miscarriages but to sue over it? Ridiculous.

Do these women think they are hired for their "talent"? They are supposed to be decoration for the set. I can see why a producer would be upset if their decoration is going to be out of commission for awhile!
